Afriqiyah Airways focuses on rebuilding Libya’s connectivity; international capacity up 74% in October



A new start: In late 2012, Afriqiyah Airways unveiled its new livery. Three blue stripes on the tail represent the neck markings on the Turtle Dove, a migratory bird distributed across Europe and North Africa and a universal symbol of love. It replaced the old paint scheme, reminiscent of Gadaffi’s flagship undertaking – the creation of the African Union on 9 September 1999.

Located in the Maghreb region of North Africa and roughly the size of the US state of Alaska, Libya is the world’s 17th largest country (and the fourth largest in Africa), one that is in possession of the world’s 10th largest proven oil reserves. However, as a predominantly desert country (nearly 90% of its land is taken up by the sand), Libya is inhabited by less than six million people of which a third lives in the capital city, Tripoli. It is no surprise then that most of the country’s traffic concentrates in only two out of a total of 11 airports – Tripoli and Benghazi. The only scheduled services at the remaining nine facilities are connections to the main airports. Following a bloody revolution in early 2011, Libya has mounted a strong economic recovery and the GDP more than doubled last year, turning round a dramatic 60% decline in 2011. Faster than expected restoration of oil production, and the easing of consumer price inflation to manageable levels, enticed international carriers to rebuild their pre-revolution capacity, but also created a fertile soil for the growth of domestic carriers – Afriqiyah Airways and Libyan Airlines. Nevertheless, the long-awaited merger of the two Libyan operators is yet to materialize and most likely won’t do so before at least early 2014.

50% capacity growth this October

Investigation of Innovata’s weekly data for October 2013 indicates that Afriqiyah managed an outstanding annual growth both in terms of weekly frequencies (+54.0%) and seats (+47.7%) as compared to the corresponding period of 2012. In fact, the carrier has largely managed to restore its operation to pre-revolution levels – weekly frequencies are 6.6% above October 2010, while only 3.6% less seats are offered now compared to the same period.


Source: Innovata weekly data Oct 13 vs Oct 12


Afriqiyah’s traffic recovery is principally driven by the restoration of the carrier’s international network. This part of the business, which in October 2013 accounts for 57% of the airline’s total weekly seat capacity, grew 73.5% compared to the same period in 2012. International frequencies showed even greater dynamics, with the annual increase nearing 80%. Over the same period, domestic capacity grew more modestly – increases of respectively 12.5% and 5.5% were noted for weekly frequencies and seats.

International capacity yet to be fully restored

International services have certainly been high on Afriqiyah’s agenda in the aftermath of the revolution. Of the 13 foreign destinations operated at present by the carrier from four Libyan airports, six are new compared to October 2012. Seventy weekly frequencies are currently offered by Afriqiyah in the international market with around 63% of the capacity (44 weekly flights) assigned to the airline’s main hub in Tripoli.


Source: Innovata 2005-2013. *2013: Data as of 21 October 2013.

A total of 16 weekly flights to seven international destinations are marketed from Benghazi. Additionally, services to Cairo, Sfax (both new routes in October 2013) and Tunis are operated from Misrata in the north-west of the country; Tunis is also offered with thrice-weekly frequencies as Afriqiyah’s only international destination from Sabha in south-west Libya.

International growth in the regions…

A total of 12 new international routes were launched by Afriqiyah in the course of last year. Tripoli saw a total of six route additions by Afriqiyah since October 2012, of which only two — the thrice-weekly flights to Casablanca and twice-weekly to Sfax — are genuinely new. Düsseldorf, Dubai, Khartoum and Niamey — each offered with twice-weekly frequencies in October 2013 — were operated prior to the 2011 revolution.

The remaining six services were launched in Benghazi and Misrata. Benghazi, Libya’s second-largest city, welcomed four new routes – to Cairo, Dubai, Istanbul and Khartoum, while flights to Cairo and Sfax commenced from Misrata.


Competition in international markets from Libya is considerable, and growing fast. In October 2013, a total of 16 foreign carriers provided services to Libya, accounting for slightly more than half of the country’s international capacity (51.8% weekly seats). In fact, foreign operators increased their frequencies and seat offering by respectively 25.7% and 31.1% compared to October 2012. Tunisair and Turkish Airlines are the two largest foreign airlines in Libya and command respectively 16.1% and 9.0% of the country’s international seats this October.

The main problem about Libya, is the lake of informations, of website ...

This is very confuse. For example, those 4 companies have flights to Morocco. That's just incredible to see a such small countries with 4 internationals companies.

Afriqiyah : Casablanca (3)
Lybian Airlines : Casablanca (7)
Ghadames Air Transport : Marrakech (1)
Buraq Air : Rabat (3)

And Royal Air Maroc to Tripoli (7).

Dubaï J2 : la frénésie de commandes s’estompe


Publié le 19 novembre 2013 à 07h30 par François Duclos



Après 15 minutes de folie dimanche qui ont vu trois compagnies aériennes acheter des avions pour plus de 140 milliards de dollars, la deuxième journée du Salon de Dubaï a été marquée par des commandes « normales » pour Airbus, ATR et Bombardier.

La plus importante commande du 18 novembre 2013 est revenue à Airbus, avec qui la future compagnie Libyan Wings a signé un protocole d’accord pour trois A350-900 et quatre A320neo, d’une valeur de 1,26 milliards de dollars au prix catalogue et livrables à partir de 2020. Basée à l’aéroport de Tripoli, Libyan Wings doit lancer début 2014 des vols passagers et fret, opérés avec des avions pris en leasing. Son PDG Wisam Al Masri a déclaré que les deux appareils « joueront un rôle significatif afin que la compagnie bénéficie d’une des flottes les plus modernes et efficientes au Moyen Orient », tout en offrant aux passagers « le niveau de confort le plus élevé à la fois sur les destinations long-courriers et régionales » et à la compagnie les « coûts opérationnels les plus bas ». Lybian Wings devrait initialement desservir Benghazi, Misurata et Tobrouk, avant de lancer des vols vers Le Caire, Alexandrie, Casablanca et Istanbul.

Le constructeur franco-italien ATR a de son côté vendu cinq ATR72-600 (plus cinq options) à la société de leasing GECAS, un contrat de 241 millions de dollars – la troisième commande depuis 2011 pour GE Capital Aviation Services. Les livraisons débuteront en 2015, a souligné ATR, qui a vendu depuis 2010 plus de cent appareils de la série 600 aux sociétés de leasing.

Bombardier a également ouvert ses compteurs hier, avec tout d’abord une entente d’achat conditionnelle par Air Côte d’Ivoire pour deux Dash-8 Q400 NextGen livrables en 2014, avec options sur deux autres. Au prix courant, le contrat touchant les deux Q400 en commande ferme est estimé à 69 millions de dollars (si les deux options étaient converties, la valeur du contrat augmenterait pour passer à 141 millions). Le Q400 NextGen en configuration biclasse « est idéal pour notre marché; il répondra aux exigences des passagers et s’intégrera très bien à notre flotte », a déclaré René Decurey, PDG d’Air Côte d’Ivoire. En Afrique occidentale « où les prix moyens du carburant sont parmi les plus élevés du monde et les plus élevés du continent, le biturbopropulseur écoénergétique Q400 NextGen est la solution d’avion régional la plus rentable et la plus souple pour nos activités », a-t-il souligné.

La société de leasing Palma Holding Limited (Palma) a de son côté signé une lettre d’intention couvrant une commande pouvant aller jusqu’à huit avions Q400 NextGen (4 fermes et 4 options) en configuration biclasse. Palma a l’intention de louer quatre avions à Ethiopian Airlines, qui en opère déjà 13 « Nous sommes très heureux de devenir la première société de location-exploitation d’avions Q400 NextGen de Bombardier au Moyen-Orient, et la première société de location-exploitation de cet avion en configuration biclasse », a déclaré Moulay Omar Alaoui, président, Palma Holding Limited. Au 30 septembre 2013, Bombardier avait enregistré 476 commandes fermes de biturbopropulseurs Q400 et Q400 NextGen.

------------------------------


..............

The largest order of November 18, 2013 returned to Airbus, with which the company future Libyan Wings signed a Memorandum of Understanding for three A350-900s and four A320neo, worth $ 1.26 billion at list price and available from 2020. Based at the airport in Tripoli, Libyan Wings should start early 2014 passenger and cargo flights operated with aircraft leased. CEO Wisam Al Masri said that both devices "will play a significant role in the company boasts one of the most modern and efficient fleets in the Middle East", while offering passengers "the highest level of comfort both long-haul and regional 'destinations and the company with the "lowest" operational costs. Lybian Wings should initially serve Benghazi, Misurata and Tobruk, before launching flights to Cairo, Alexandria, Casablanca and Istanbul.

All these Libyan based carriers aren't going anywhere anytime soon as the Tripoli airport has been taken over by rebels who set the terminal on fire. The battle for the airport which lasted for more then a month also destroyed several planes and damaged even more.
