Mexican plane to take back Mexicans in Chile



2010-03-03 08:46
http://english.eastday.com/e/100303/u1a5054703.html

The Mexican Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday that a plane of the Mexican airline AeroMexico will be sent to Chile to take back the first group of Mexicans in the South American country hit by an 8.8-magnitude massive earthquake.

The take-off of the plane, which had been scheduled for Sunday, was delayed due to the abnormal situation at the Santiago international airport.

Chilean civil aviation authorities announced Tuesday that flights flow at the airport had gradually normalized.

Staff of the Mexican embassy to Chile have arrived in Concepcion city,

one of the most affected by the earthquake, to assist a group of Mexican students, who are now being aided with food and water.

The First Group of Citizens Repatriated from Chile Arrives in Mexico

http://www.isria.com/pages/5_March_2010_162.php
The Foreign Ministry reports that AeroMexico flight MX011 coming from Santiago, Chile, landed in Mexico City this morning with 149 passengers on board, most of them Mexicans, the first to be repatriated after the earthquake in Chile.

This commercial flight was possible due to the steps taken by the Foreign Ministry, the Communications and Transportation Ministry and our embassy in Chile, and to the goodwill of the Chilean authorities and the Mexican airline.

Although the flight was originally scheduled to depart from Mexico City on February 28, Chilean officials did not grant the necessary permits for the landing and take-off until March 2nd due to the condition of the Santiago airport, which was severely damaged by the earthquake.

From the day of the earthquake, the Foreign Ministry has acted responsibly to provide consular assistance to the Mexican citizens in Chile, and especially in the city of Concepción, the city that was most affected by the earthquake. As part of its efforts, the Ministry has been in constant contact with the more than 100 Mexicans who expressed a desire to return to Mexico.

The Mexican government, through the embassy in Santiago, covered the lodging expenses for some of the Mexicans who lacked the financial resources for that purpose.

More than half of the group of Mexicans arrived on this morning’s flight; the rest will travel to Mexico on a Mexican Air Force plane that took aid to Chile and is expected to land tonight. A second AeroMexico flight that took off for Santiago, Chile today will return to Mexico on Friday, March 5th in the morning.

AEROMEXICO DELAYS DELIVERY OF 10 BOEING PLANES


www.news.airwise.com
March 24, 2010
Mexican airline AeroMexico said on Wednesday it had delayed receiving 10 aircraft from Boeing due for delivery this year until 2011-2012.

"The delivery of the new Boeing (planes), which were originally planned for this year, have been postponed until 2011 and 2012," chief executive Andres Conesa said.

He did not specify what kind of aircraft, or whether they were to be purchased or leased.

Conesa forecast the carrier's passenger load factor would rise 6 percent in 2010, though would not recover to 2008 levels due to the sharp fall last year because of the impact of the global financial crisis and the H1N1 virus.

He said the company was not looking at consolidating with another industry partner, as some airlines have done, but was keeping a close eye on oil prices.

"We are not going to depend on a consolidation or a merger," Conesa said. "I think we have all the elements to forge ahead."

Boeing projects world air passenger traffic will return to 2008 levels this year and sees global sales picking up in 2011 or 2012, Drew Magill, director of marketing for commercial airlines at Boeing, said at FIDAE on Tuesday.

In Latin America, Boeing expects air traffic to double over the next 10 years, leading to 1,640 new orders for the industry over the next 20 years, part of a global demand for some 29,000 planes worth USD$3.2 trillion over the next 20 years, Magill said.

Airline AeroMexico Resumes Shanghai Route, Opens San Jose (Costa Rica)


www.nasdaq.com

MEXICO CITY -(Dow Jones)- AeroMexico, one of Mexico's top two airlines, resumed regular flights Friday from Mexico City to Shanghai after suspending them last year due to the A/H1N1 influenza outbreak.

AeroMexico
also inaugurated a flight between the Mexican capital and San Jose Costa Rica, the company said in a press release.

The San Jose route will operate daily on Boeing 737-700s, while the Shanghai route will depart Mexico City twice a week on Boeing 777s.

AeroMexico first launched the Shanghai route in 2008 but suspended it last May as the influenza outbreak caused a sharp drop in air travel to, from, and within Mexico.

With the economy in recovery this year and passenger traffic expected to grow by about 5%, AeroMexico announced plans in November to resume flights to China, a fast-growing trade partner of Mexico.

AeroMexico, along with low-cost subsidiary Connect, saw non-charter traffic fall 0.9% last year to 10 million passengers, according to government statistics.

Flights resume linking Mexico and Shanghai



By Xu Fang and Pan Xiaoyi | 2010-3-29

www.shanghaidaily.com

DIRECT flights between Mexico and Shanghai, suspended last April because of an outburst of swine flu in Mexico, officially resumed yesterday with the arrivals and departures of 419 passengers at the Pudong International Airport, border inspectors said.

AeroMexico plans two flights a week between Mexico City and Shanghai, with a stop in the north Mexican city of Tijuana. The route is expected to transport 60,000 passengers a year, AeroMexico said.

The flight in the Boeing 777, which can hold 277 passengers, takes about 20 hours, some four or five hours less than before because there's no stop in Japan anymore.

At 7:41am yesterday, 263 passengers from Mexico arrived at the Pudong airport. A passenger from Mexico City said it was the first time she and her family traveled to China.

They were attracted by China's long history and culture, and also looking forward to the World Expo that will open in May.

A Chinese woman surnamed Su, who settled in Mexico, said the direct flight offered much convenience to Chinese living there.

At 10:45am, 156 passengers, including 131 Chinese, 18 Mexicans and seven passengers from other countries, left Shanghai for Mexico.

A man surnamed Wei was the first to finish the exit procedures.

He said he was on a business trip to Mexico and booked the ticket after learning on the Internet that the flight was resuming.

Carlos Porraga, the airlines' vice president of corporate sales, told the Xinhua news agency on Saturday that AeroMexico had been waiting for the right time to put the flights back on the schedule.

"The Shanghai World Expo has worked as the catalyst for the carrier to start it again to meet the consumer demands," he said.

He said the airlines view Asia, and especially China, as important markets.

"The Expo will bring us a huge number of passengers. Besides Mexico, Expo visitors and working staff from other Latin American countries will also take our flight to China," Porraga said.

As the only carrier in Latin America with Asian routes, AeroMexico will link Shanghai to a larger network of countries, including Chile, Brazil, Argentina and Costa Rica.

"Consuls in these countries told me they were so excited about the resumption of the flight as it offered much convenience and could reinforce commercial, cultural and tourist relations between China, Mexico and Latin America," said Miguel Barrio, Mexico's Consul General in Shanghai.

AeroMexico Expects 60,000 Flyers a Year on Mexico-China Route


www.laht.com


SHANGHAI, China – AeroMexico, the only Latin American airline that flies to China and Japan, expects to transport 60,000 passengers per year on its flights between Mexico City and Shanghai, the official Shanghai Daily reported Monday.

The route between Mexico and China, which was opened in May 2008, returned to operation this weekend after having been suspended by Beijing last May in response to the swine flu outbreak in Mexico.

The hiatus ended Sunday with the arrival at Shanghai’s Pudong Airport of two flights from Mexico carrying a total of 419 passengers.

AeroMexico’s Boeing 777 aircraft carry 277 passengers each, and thus the average occupancy on the first two flights after the resumption of air service was 75.6 percent.

Although during the winter of 2009, AeroMexico considered scrapping the China route after the falloff in passengers due to the financial crisis, it finally decided to keep it in place, since it remained profitable thanks to business travelers.

That is what the assistant director of marketing for AeroMexico in Shanghai, Keyda Melais, told Efe in January, saying then that “the demand is here,” and that up to 40 percent of the passengers who traveled between Japan and Mexico were Chinese, and they were waiting for the reopening of the flights to and from China.

Melais also said that one of the two weekly flights that will now depart from China for Mexico City will be a direct flight, while the other will continue to include a stop in Tijuana.

The resumption of the flights to China comes a little more than a month before Expo 2010, which Shanghai will host between May and October, and it has served as a “catalyst for the airline beginning once again to satisfy the needs of consumers,” said the firm’s vice president, Carlos Porraga, on Saturday.

Airline AeroMexico Resumes Flights To Paris




By Paul Kiernan
Dow Jones Newswires
Tuesday, April 20, 2010

MEXICO CITY -(Dow Jones)- Airline AeroMexico on Tuesday resumed daily flights between Mexico City and Paris after suspending the route last week because of the volcanic ash clouding European skies.

The company's routes to Madrid and Barcelona have remained open in the days since a volcanic eruption in Iceland disrupted air travel across northern Europe.

A spokesperson for rival carrier Mexicana said that company's route between Mexico City and London is still suspended until further notice. Mexicana's flights between the Mexican capital and Madrid remain open.

AeroMexico suspends flights to Arizona because of new immigration law




www.thaindian.com
MEXICO CITY (BNO NEWS) — AeroMexico said that it is suspending flights to Phoenix and Tucson in Arizona due to a “significant” fall in demand generated largely by the adoption of a new state immigration law.

AeroMexico CEO Andres Conesa told a news conference that the anti-immigrant law passed in Arizona had significantly affected the air traffic between Mexico and the state. The airline subsequently decided to suspend or cancel a number of flights.

Conesa said a non-stop flight between Mexico City and Phoenix has been suspended. Only flights from Hermosillo in the Mexican state of Sonora are arriving in Phoenix, at a lower frequency than before.

A non-stop flight between Guadalajara and Phoenix was also suspended and flights to Tucson have been reduced, Conesa added.

Groupe Aeroplan to Make Strategic Investment in Club Premier, AeroMexico's Frequent Flyer Program



MONTREAL, Apr 26, 2010 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX) --
Groupe Aeroplan Inc. (TSX: AER | Quote | Chart | News | PowerRating), a leading international loyalty management corporation headquartered in Canada and Aerovias de México, S.A. de C.V. (AeroMexico), the leading domestic airline in Mexico, today announced that they have entered into an agreement pursuant to which Groupe Aeroplan will acquire a minority position in AeroMexico's frequent flyer program, Club Premier. The transaction, which is subject to the completion of due diligence, the negotiation of definitive documentation as well as customary closing conditions, is expected to close in the third quarter of 2010. Groupe Aeroplan will initially invest US$22 million in Club Premier, and will account for the investment under the cost method, with an additional US$12 million to be invested if certain performance milestones are achieved within 18 months of closing. Upon conclusion of the second tranche, Groupe Aeroplan will account for its investment under the equity method.

"As Groupe Aeroplan's first investment in an international frequent flyer program, this transaction represents a significant strategic milestone; it marks the export of our company's very successful Aeroplan Canada business model," said Rupert Duchesne, President and CEO, Groupe Aeroplan. "Mexico is a high growth market and one of the target countries of our global expansion strategy. This investment not only provides us with a stepping stone into the very important Latin American market, but it also reinforces our position as a global leader in loyalty management, allowing us to participate in the transformation of a frequent flyer program into a standalone, broad-based coalition loyalty program. We are looking forward to working with AeroMexico and Club Premier's talented management teams," added Duchesne.

AeroMexico is the domestic airline in Mexico with more than 600 daily flights to more than 60 destinations worldwide. AeroMexico is a privately held company, whose shareholders include Banamex, Mexico's largest bank. The airline has been selected as the "Best Airline in Mexico" by the readers of Business Traveller magazine for four consecutive years.

"We are thrilled to partner with Groupe Aeroplan in developing Club Premier into a broad based coalition program in Mexico," said Andrés Conesa, Chief Executive Officer of AeroMexico. "Club Premier is the leading frequent flyer program in Mexico with 2.5 million members and over 50 partners. As a member of Skyteam, a global airline alliance, Club Premier members have the opportunity to earn and redeem points on airlines such as Delta, the largest airline in the world, and Air France-KLM, the largest airline in Europe."

Groupe Aeroplan will have proportional representation on Club Premier's Board of Directors, as well as approval rights in relation to certain significant business matters. Groupe Aeroplan and AeroMexico will be involved in the continuous support of the business with a focus to build, grow and transform the Club Premier program and its capabilities into a world class coalition loyalty program.

"This investment, which will be financed with cash on hand, allows Groupe Aeroplan to participate in the very early stages of the creation of Club Premier, as a standalone program," said David Adams, Chief Financial Officer, Groupe Aeroplan. "The transaction provides significant opportunities for growth and we look forward to working with AeroMexico and Club Premier in pursuing strategies to maximize shareholder value. To that end, we may consider the potential merits of a future IPO of Club Premier, at an opportune time, if and when conditions are favourable."

In connection with this transaction, RBC Capital Markets acted as financial advisor to Groupe Aeroplan.
