Boeing 777-200 - Qatar Airways Launches Daily Flights to Brazil and Argentina

Posted by Mohamed Tamer
Sunday, 27 June 2010 15:15



BRAZIL / ARGENTINA – Qatar Airways today celebrated yet another milestone in its short history with the launch of scheduled daily flights to Brazil and Argentina marking its foray into South America for the first time.

Brazil’s largest city Sao Paulo and the Argentinian capital Buenos Aires have joined the airline’s growing list of destinations, taking the Doha-based carrier’s global network up to 92 points served worldwide.

With the lands of samba and tango now in the airline’s network, it signals the latest step in Qatar Airways’ huge expansion drive with South America becoming the final piece in the airline’s global jigsaw that now covers six continents.

The two new routes complete a five-month expansion programme so far this year which has seen the airline introduce flights to Bengaluru (Bangalore), Copenhagen, Ankara, Tokyo and Barcelona.

Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker led a high profile delegation of dignitaries and international media from Asia and the Gulf region on the inaugural flight QR921 from Doha to Sao Paulo and onwards to Buenos Aires.

They included Brazil’s Ambassador to the State of Qatar, His Excellency Anuar Nahes and His Excellency Ruben Caro, Argentina’s Ambassador to Qatar.

Airport functions, featuring a cake-cutting ceremony and speeches, were held on arrival at both cities, attended by government, airport and business officials, together with local and international media.

Al Baker said today was an historic occasion for Qatar Airways that would further boost economic ties between Qatar and both Brazil and Argentina.

“Just 13 years ago, Qatar Airways embarked on an ambitious plan by launching an airline that would spread its wings far and wide and offer the highest levels of service and hospitality,” he said, speaking at arrival receptions at both airports.

“Today, I am proud to say that we have achieved a remarkable feat, stretching our award-winning Five Star service to South America by serving both Brazil and Argentina, which takes our international network up to 92 destinations across six continents. This is indeed a momentous occasion for Qatar Airways and all our staff.

“I would like to thank the airport authorities and government agencies in both countries for helping Qatar Airways make today’s launch a reality.

“Both Brazil and Argentina share close ties with Qatar and with our new routes, we will only reinforce and strengthen the relationship we already share, boosting trade, commerce and tourism.”

Added Al Baker: “The timing of our new routes could not have been better and we are confident that entering the relatively untapped South American market will be a great success.

“With a large Lebanese and Japanese community living in Brazil, Argentina and neighbouring South American countries, the route is a perfect match for our business model, which carries passengers from East to West and vice versa via our Doha hub.”

During his speech, Al Baker congratulated both the Brazilian and Argentinian soccer teams for their qualification into the next round of the World Cup currently taking place in South Africa.

Qatar Airways is the only Five Star ranked airline operating between the Middle East and South America, and was recently elevated to the top three airlines in the world in the prestigious Skytrax global rankings.

The new South American flights offer excellent connections to and from key cities worldwide, across the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific via the airline’s Doha hub. These include Tokyo, Shanghai, Singapore, Beijing, Melbourne, Nairobi, Beirut, Dubai and Muscat.

During a four-month period starting in October 2010, Qatar Airways will expand its international route network further with six new routes, operating scheduled flights from Doha to Phuket, Hanoi, Nice, Brussels, Bucharest And Budapest.
Qatar Airways operates the Boeing 777-200 Long Range aircraft in a two-class configuration of 259 seats – 42 in Economy and 216 in Business Class – to Brazil and Argentina, offering arguably the most spacious aircraft of any airline flying between the Middle East and South America.
In Business Class, passengers are able to enjoy unprecedented comfort and space with a seat pitch of up to 78 inches, and each seat converting into 180-degree fully flat beds. With a 2–2–2 seat configuration, Business Class passengers are assured of either a window or aisle seat.

In Economy Class, seat space is above the industry average with a pitch of up to 34 inches offering significant leg room. The 3–3–3 seat configuration is the most spacious of any airline flying to South America from the Middle East.

By 2013, Qatar Airways plans to serve 120 key business and leisure destinations worldwide with a modern fleet of 120 aircraft. Today, the airline’s fleet stands at 84 aircraft, flying to destinations across Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific and North and South America.

Malaysia Airlines now flies with just 1 stop

The flight used to stop in Johannesburg and Cape Town, from Kuala Lumpur. But is now operated with just a stop in Cape Town, South Africa. The service is still 2 weekly with B747-400.



British Airways will fly non-stop

The british airline will end with the stop in Sao Paulo on the London - Buenos Aires flight. It is at the moment flown every day with B747 but will be changed to B777 due to being direct and still daily from the 27 of March.
It is said that this is a response to Aerolíneas Argentinas interest to launch a flight to London next year from its Buenos Aires base.



KLM interested in Buenos Aires

The dutch airline wants to start flying to Argentina next year as Aerolíneas Argentinas will join SkyTeam in 2012 and Buenos Aires will be a hub of it.



SKY Airline to BA

The chilean airline will start with 2 daily flight to Ezeiza Airport in their A320 in December. It is one of the first international destinations it'll have.


Aerolíneas Argentinas to fly Mexico City

Flights to the mexican capital will start the 4th of March with 4 weekly services in A340.



Aeroméxico increase capacity to Argentina

From 3 to 10 weekly flights the airline will be increasing, some with B767 and others B777. With Aerolineas Argentinas (future SkyTeam member) accorded to synchronize timetables to have 2 daily services between both cities with the right hours to flexibilize the passengers.



Lufthansa will send the first B747-8 to BA

As soon as the new B747 are delivered, the european giant will send the first passenger B747-8 ever made on its inaugural flight to Buenos Aires. Lufthansa flyes from Frankfurt every day with its B747-400.


Qatar Airways wants to skip stop in Sao Paulo

It flyes every day with B777 from Doha with a stop in Sao Paulo, but they already want to separate the route to have both destinations non-stop. There are no official dates.

Ezeiza is getting better everyday. Now the only thing that it needs is a direct rail link to Buenos Aires.

Qantas May Axe Routes, Seek Ventures

Quote:
Qantas Airways Ltd. (QAN) may cut routes and seek tie-ups with competitors as Australia’s largest carrier works to reverse losses at its international business, according to analysts.
The airline may stop flying to South Africa and South America to focus on routes to London and Los Angeles, said Neil Hansford, chairman of Strategic Aviation Solutions, a Sydney- based industry consultant. It may also shift Hawaiian services to the Jetstar budget unit, he said.
Qantas Chief Executive Officer Alan Joyce has promised a “ruthless” review of operations after forecasting two years of annual losses at the international unit following a loss in market share. The airline is losing travelers as Singapore Airlines Ltd. (SIA) and Dubai-based Emirates lure business class customers with newer planes and free rides to airports.
“Qantas international has stood still for decades and everyone caught up and overtook them,” said Chris Weston, an institutional dealer at IG Markets in Melbourne. “When I fly with them for business it doesn’t feel like the others.”
The Sydney-based carrier’s share of travelers to and from Australia has fallen to 19 percent in April from 35 percent in 2001, according to official data. It has maintained a two-thirds share of the domestic market for almost a decade.
Qantas’s plans to revamp its international business include “making cuts where we need to make them,” Joyce told the Australian Broadcasting Corp.’s “Inside Business” program on July 10. The airline will announce its strategy to turn around the long-haul business with annual earnings on Aug. 24.

Corporate Customers
Joyce has said he will inject some of the savings squeezed from the international network into the luxury end of the division to win back corporate customers. The strategy’s two other elements involve addressing partnerships with other carriers and targeting expansion in Asia.
Thomas Woodward, a Sydney-based spokesman for Qantas, declined to comment beyond Joyce’s public statements.
Qantas fell 3.3 percent to A$1.935 at the 4:10 p.m. close of trading in Sydney yesterday. The stock has dropped 24 percent this year, compared with a 3.4 percent decline in Australia’s benchmark S&P/ASX 200 index.
Forging alliances with carriers such as Malaysian Airline System Bhd. (MAS) will help Qantas add destinations without having to fly all its own jets and provide the infrastructure, according to the Center for Asia-Pacific Aviation.
“Qantas need to look at alliances,” said Derek Sadubin, chief operating officer of the Sydney-based consultancy. “The Asian market is something that Alan Joyce is very much focused on. It’s the big opportunity for Qantas.”

Johannesburg, Buenos Aires
The carrier flies to eight countries in Asia. Its only African destination is Johannesburg, and in South America it serves Buenos Aires. The airline also operates to Los Angeles and Dallas/Fort Worth in the U.S. and London and Frankfurt in Europe.
Qantas forecast on June 22 an A$200 million ($214 million) loss at the international arm for the year ended June 30 and a bigger loss this year. The airline has scaled back capacity growth plans twice this year, including scrapping plane orders.
In addition to the task of winning back travelers, Joyce also faces challenges from rising fuel costs, natural disasters such as floods in Queensland and the tsunami in Japan that have curbed travel, and a record Australian dollar that makes it more expensive for tourists to visit.

Industrial Action
He also has to deal with a looming strike threat from long- haul pilots. The Australian & International Pilots Association, which represents the long-haul pilots, yesterday voted to take its first industrial action at the carrier since 1966 while the engineers union plans disruptions across the network in support of higher wages.
With a reputation built on safety, including no fatalities in the jet age, Qantas is also limited by Australian laws in any bid to pare in-flight staffing. The rules stipulate that there has to be at least one flight attendant for every 36 passengers on most commercial flights while the pilot roles are determined by the type of aircraft.
Strategic Aviation’s Hansford said the carrier may drop routes where it doesn’t get a high proportion of business class or premium economy passengers, leaving it with likely destinations including Los Angeles and London.
Focusing on the U.K. and U.S. also enables Joyce to tap into the networks of airlines such as British Airways and AMR Corp.’s American Airlines, both fellow members of the Oneworld group of carriers.
“The money is made at the front end of the plane,” said Hansford. “If it’s a leisure destination, it makes more sense to use Jetstar. Jetstar can make somewhere like Hawaii viable.”
