Adria Airways Orders Two CRJ900 NextGen Aircraft

Adria Airways of Ljubljana, Slovenia has signed a firm purchase agreement for two Bombardier CRJ900 NextGen regional jets. A Star Alliance member with over fifty years of experience in scheduled and charter services, Adria Airways has been a Bombardier customer since March 1997. It currently operates four CRJ200, two CRJ900 and two CRJ900 NextGen regional jets.

Based on the list price for the CRJ900 NextGen aircraft, the order is valued at approximately $92 million US.

- Our Bombardier CRJ900 regional jets have proven to be most efficient and economical assets to increase capacity and replace larger aircraft where passenger loads are insufficient," said Mark Anzur, Chief Executive Officer, Adria Airways.

- With its demonstrated reliability and low fuel consumption, the CRJ900 NextGen regional jet offers an unmatched mix of cost efficiency, network flexibility and passenger appeal."

- Adria Airways is among the growing list of operators who are benefitting from the proven performance of the CRJ900 NextGen regional jet. This is a testimony to our ongoing commitment to the technological updates of our product offerings to ensure their competitiveness," said Ray Jones, Senior Vice President, Sales, Marketing and Asset Management, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft.

- Adria Airways has been a long-time Bombardier Commercial Aircraft customer and also maintained more than 700 CRJ aircraft as our first Recognized Service Facility in Europe. We're thrilled that the airline is once again looking to us for its fleet solution."

Including Adria Airways' order, Bombardier has recorded firm orders for 1,814 CRJ Series aircraft, including 341 CRJ900 and CRJ900 NextGen aircraft. Worldwide, CRJ Series aircraft are in service with more than 60 airlines and more than 30 customers operate corporate variants of the aircraft. The aircraft are operating in over 50 countries on six continents, and on average, a CRJ aircraft takes off every 10 seconds somewhere in the world. CRJ Series aircraft have transported more than 1.4 billion passengers and have logged more than 38 million flight hours and over 32 million takeoffs and landings.

China Southern weighs Slovenian deals


China Southern Airlines Co Ltd is considering acquisitions in Slovenia that will help it expand its presence in Europe.

China Southern is one of 20-plus potential buyers that have expressed interest in a 75 percent stake in the capital Ljubljana's Joze Pucnik Airport, according to EX-YU Aviation News, a blog that covers the aviation industry in Eastern Europe.

The Chinese carrier will compete with airlines, airports, pension funds and investment groups from around the world for the stake.

China Southern might make other acquisitions in the Slovenian aviation industry, including Adria Airways DD and maintenance company Adria Airways Tehnika DD, which are also up for sale, the blog reported.

Peng Jun, director of China Southern's public relations department, said that she wasn't aware of any such pending acquisition. The board secretary's office didn't respond to queries as of press time.

In March, the airport announced that KPMG LLP, which is acting as a consultant for the sale on behalf of the majority shareholders of airport operator Aerodrom Ljubljana DD, was seeking declarations of interest in the purchase of a majority shareholding.

In the first phase of the sale, non-binding offers for 75.5 percent of the shares in Aerodrom Ljubljana will be accepted.

"The plan is for joint sales involving multiple shareholders to be completed by the summer," the airport said in a statement.

The airport's better-than-expected performance last year has drawn wide interest from possible buyers. Passenger throughput was 1.32 million last year.

In the first quarter of 2014, passenger numbers were up almost 13 percent.

Net profit was up 5.4 percent in the first quarter at 857,000 euros ($1.18 million).

This isn't the first move by the Chinese airline industry into Europe.

Fraport seals Ljubljana Airport deal


German operator Fraport has reached an agreement for the purchase of a 75.5% stake of Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport yesterday, winning against strong international competition in a closed bidding process. Under the agreement, Fraport will pay 177.1 million euros for the majority stake. The acquisition will be financed from current liquid funds. As part of the privatisation process, Fraport intends to acquire 100% of the airport company valued at 234 million euros. Therefore, it will submit a takeover bid to the remaining shareholders, in accordance with legal and statutory requirements. Ljubljana Airport shares rose by 5.3% to sixty euros in trading on Friday, while Fraport was up 2%, following the takeover announcement.

Fraport CEO, Stefan Schulte, expressed his satisfaction with the expansion of the company’s international airport portfolio. “With Ljubljana, we are adding another airport investment with dynamic development potential. The choice for Fraport underscores our position as a leading global airport manager”, Mr. Schulte said. He added the company plans to expand passenger and cargo transport at Ljubljana Airport, increase profit and the number of employees, but gave no figures. "We are here as long term investors. We are looking for a long term development of Ljubljana Airport. The profitability of the airport is good and has no dilutive effect", Mr. Schulte told a press conference after signing the sales contract. Matthias Zieschang, Fraport’s Chief Financial Officer, added, “Our extensive know-how gained over many decades will enable us to further expand and strengthen Ljubljana’s competitive position - a real win-win situation for everyone involved”.

French concession and construction company, Vinci, yesterday requested a new round of negotiations on the sale after increasing its offer, but its proposal was rejected by the Slovenian Sovereign Holding, which has been managing Ljubljana Airport's privatisation process. Fraport, which also owns stakes in airports in Lima, Antalya, Varna and Burgas, among others, has been looking to extend its international operations and recently made its first foray into the United States with a deal to buy an airport retail management company. Ljubljana Airport handled 1.3 million passengers in 2013, earning a net profit of 5.2 million euros and recording revenue of some 31 million euros. It is one of fifteen state run companies that Slovenia's outgoing centre-left government had slated for privatisation last year and the third of them to be sold.

Belarus, Slovenia mull over Minsk-Ljubljana direct air service


LJUBLJANA, 22 October (BelTA) - Belarus and Slovenia began discussing establishing the Minsk-Ljubljana air service. This topic was raised during the fourth session of the Belarusian-Slovenian intergovernmental commission on trade, economic and sci-tech cooperation, BelTA has learned.

The Slovenian side stated its interest in opening a flight between the two capitals and elaborating a draft bilateral agreement.

The matter is very important for Belarus too, the co-chair of the commission, Deputy Foreign Minister of Belarus Yelena Kupchina said. Belavia has recently opened new flights, including those connecting Minsk with European cities. Yelena Kupchina said that such decisions, however, should be based on clear economic calculations. "We need to establish contacts between the aviation authorities of the two countries and calculate the economics of such decision," she said.

According to Yelena Kupchina, the opening of air service between the Belarusian and Slovak capitals would greatly enhance the cooperation between Belarus and Slovenia.

Adria to open Lodz base

Slovenia’s national carrier, Adria Airways, has announced plans to open a base in the Polish city of Lodz next year. The airline launched services from Poland’s third largest city to Munich during the 2014 summer season and maintains six weekly flights on the route. Adria’s CEO, Mark Anžur, says the carrier will lease a Bombardier CRJ700 aircraft, which will be stationed at Lodz, and will double its flights to the Bavarian capital next summer season. Furthermore, Adria will inaugurate a daily service from the Polish city to Amsterdam. Lodz is Adria’s second destination in Poland following Warsaw. In addition, Adria is considering commencing subsidised flights from Bydgoszcz, in Poland’s north, to Germany during the 2015 summer season. The CRJ700 has the capacity to seat up to 78 passengers.

In a recent interview, CEO Anžur, said, “Strategically we want to be a European carrier and not only a Slovenian carrier. We are embracing internationalisation. There are many reasons for this. One of them being that the Slovenian market is very limited. Through this segment of our strategy, we expect a 5% increase in our passenger numbers. The Bombardier is an ideal aircraft for regional routes because it acts as an alternative to low cost airlines which can’t make a profit on certain flights with larger Airbus aircraft”. Adria’s expansion into Poland comes only days after the Slovenian carrier announced it would launch several new routes from its bases in Ljubljana and Tirana in 2015.

Adria has had a successful year so far with the addition of two leased CRJ900 NextGen aircraft to its fleet, the launch of several new routes and growth in both passenger and revenue numbers. In addition, this summer, the European Commission found that state aid provided to the Slovenian carrier between 2007 and 2011, to the tune of 79.6 million euros, was in line with European Union regulations. “Our aim is to carry as many satisfied passengers as possible. In the first eight months of the year, just under 740.000 people chose to travel with us, which is up 5% on last year”, CEO Anžur says. He adds, “Results suggest that this year we are on course to, once again, surpass the million passenger milestone, which is further confirmation that we have chosen the right business strategy”. During the first three quarters, Adria carried 712.836 passengrs to and from the Slovenian capital, up 3% on last year. The busiest routes out of its main hub in Ljubljana were Frankfurt and Zurich.

Since I realized that there are only a handful of commercial airports in Slovenia, and Adria Airways is the predominant (if not the only passenger) carrier in the country, I have decided to consolidate all things Slovenian aviation and airports in one thread. That way, discussions on Slovenian aviation will be much easier and more comprehensive.
