AeroMexico Adds E-190 Engine Components To MRO Contract


Jun 13, 2011
By Darren Shannon

AeroMexico has expanded its components supply contract with Embraer. With this latest deal, AeroMexico Connect’s fleet of Embraer 190s will now have access to engine line replaceable components, which adds 47 part numbers to the 310 or so already available under AeroMexico's previous contract.
“The addition of engine LRU components to their program further enhances the airline’s operational performance through immediate access to replacement parts promoting schedule reliability, cost reduction, and eliminating the need for the airline to maintain large parts inventories,” says Embraer VP John Linn. AeroMexico Connect, with 47 Embraer regional jets, is Embraer’s largest MRO customer.

AeroMexico Launches New Non-Stop Services From Miami to Cancun

Published by Ozgur Tore
Tuesday, 14 June 2011 14:16
AeroMexico, Mexico’s global airline, will launch non-stop services to one of the most beautiful destinations in Mexico: Cancun.

Beginning on July 4th, the airline will offer two daily flights, getting travelers one step closer to the turquoise waters that engulf the top tourist destination.

With the connection between these two beach destinations, AeroMexico brings travelers to the crystalline waters of the Mexican Caribbean, while at the same time, adding to its already extensive flights options out of Miami International Airport.

With these added flights, Cancun and AeroMexico reinforce the continued interest travelers have in visiting the destination, which was recently named this summer’s number1 international travel destination by Orbitz’s 2011 summer travel index. The destination recently inaugurated the world’s largest underwater museum and is also home of the world’s largest fish, the whale shark during the months of May-September.

Flight schedules are subject to change without notice. For more information visit www.aeromexico.com

AeroMexico to Increase MEX-BCN Flights



June 29, 2011

MEXICO’S LEADING INTERNATIONAL AIRLINE, AEROMEXICO, will increase its frequencies between the Mexican capital and Barcelona as of the 15th of July, adding two more weekly flights to bring its offering to six weekly round-trip services in the company’s Boeing 767 aircraft.
The company estimates that with the additional services its passenger numbers will increase by 65% on this route, which connects Mexico City (MEX) with Barcelona’s ‘El Prat De Llobregat’ International Airport (BCN), the second most important airport in Spain, regarding passenger numbers.
From Mexico City to Barcelona, flight AM033 will take off from Terminal 2 at 22:35 hrs.* to land in the capital of Catalonia at 17:05 hrs.*, on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.
On the Barcelona to Mexico City leg, flight AM034 will leave Terminal 1 at 23:30 hrs.* to arrive in Mexico City at 04:55 hrs.*, on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays.
The announcement about the new frequencies was made at the Mexican embassy in Barcelona by the airline’s Sales Director, Jorge Goytortua, who emphasised that the services to Mexico City offered the possibility of connections to other Mexican cities (40) as well as options to North, Central and South America.
Meanwhile, for people travelling to Barcelona from Mexico City, the Sales Director highlighted the proximity of both France and Italy, adding that the route between these two important cities was a ‘strategic’ service, which complemented the company’s flights to Madrid, the Spanish capital.
In a press release, Aeromexico stated that “The increase in these services corresponds to the consolidation of the route and represents a strong be ton the part of the company for ‘El Prat’ (Barcelona) as an alternative to the ‘Barajas’ airport (Madrid).”

AeroMexico Starts Operating in Guatemala



GUATEMALA CITY – AeroMexico started up operations Monday in Guatemala, offering four flights a day between the capitals of the two countries as part of the carrier’s international expansion plan, which will entail an investment of some $1.3 billion over the next two years.

The daily flights, two from Guatemala City to Mexico City and two from Mexico City to Guatemala City on separate schedules, will be offered on state-of-the-art Boeing 737s, AeroMexico sales director Mario Rosas said.

The inaugural flight, carrying about 100 passengers, arrived Monday at Guatemala City’s La Aurora International Airport from Mexico City.

The new route will strengthen the cultural and business ties that exist between the two countries while offering several choices to passengers seeking tourism destinations in Guatemala, Rosas said.

With its flights to Guatemala, AeroMexico will add nine destinations to and from Latin America, further consolidating it as the Mexican airline with the greatest international presence, Rosas said.

“There are 550 flights daily to cities in Mexico, the United States, Canada, Central and South America, Asia and Europe,” Rosas said.

AeroMexico expects to recoup its investment in its international expansion over the next six years, Rosas said.

In the first five months of 2011, AeroMexico carried 5 million passengers worldwide and expects to close the year with a 25 percent growth, the executive said.

AeroMexico is “offering a range of connections from Mexico to Guatemala,” marketing manager Fernando del Cid said.

Between 60 percent and 65 percent of the total number of passengers that the airline carries are on connections, Del Cid said.

The service offered by AeroMexico “will strengthen our market considerably,” Guatemalan Tourism Institute director Jorge Samayoa said.

Rival carrier Interjet began offering a daily flight last Friday between Guatemala City and Mexico City, and it plans to add a second daily flight on July 18.

Interjet, which is also based in Mexico, began operating in Guatemala in September 2007, but it cancelled its service a year later due to the spike in fuel prices. EFE

Interview: Mexican official says direct air route between Mexico, China likely to open in 2011
Updated: 2011-07-11 (Xinhua)

[COLOR=#0066cc][/COLOR]
[/URL]
MEXICO CITY, July 10 (Xinhua) -- A new direct air route between Mexico and China is expected to open before the end of 2011, a tourism official has said.
In an interview with Xinhua, Rodolfo Lopez Negrete, director of the Tourism Promotion Council of Mexico's Tourism Ministry, said opening a new direct route between Mexico City and Beijing is seen as one of the ministry's top priorities, and they are discussing the issue with several international airlines.
"China is one of the main priorities for Mexico," Lopez said, adding that Mexico has a special investment in the budget for tourism promotion in China.
"There are a number of opportunities that we are working on in order to improve the connectivity between Mexico and China, and we are sure that if we can get a direct flight between Mexico City and Beijing, we will see a major increase in the number of tourism arrivals," he said.
Lopez said progress had been made in talks with China's Hainan Airlines, Hong Kong-based Cathay Pacific and Mexico's AeroMexico.
"Talks with Hainan Airlines are quite advanced, although we still don't have anything confirmed," he said.
Tourism authorities are also talking with AeroMexico to "explore the possibility of adding a flight to Beijing," Lopez said. Aeromexico currently has a direct flight to Shanghai with a stop in Mexico's northern city Tijuana, and passenger numbers on these flights are impressive.
Lopez said they are also considering opening a flight between Mexico and Hong Kong.
"There is interest from Cathay Pacific to establish a flight to Mexico from Hong Kong via San Francisco or Los Angeles," he said.
The number of Chinese tourists in Mexico has nearly doubled in the past two years, up to 30,000 in 2011 from just over 16,000 in 2009, Lopez said, adding that Mexico's goal is to receive at least 100,000 Chinese tourists in the next few years.
As part of the many initiatives to promote the influx of Chinese tourists to Mexico, the ministry and the Promotion Council have worked closely together with Mexican embassies and consulates in China to speed up the processing of tourist and business visas for Chinese nationals, Lopez said.
"The visa processing mechanism is very important. We have established as a goal that visas should be processed in a period of a maximum 72 to 96 hours, and at most of the Mexican embassies and consulates, the time has already been reduced to 72 hours," he said.
Both Mexico and China, which are among the world's top 10 tourist destinations, will benefit from a new direct route with increasing tourist arrivals, Lopez said.
"Mexico has a high level of respect and admiration for China and the ancient Chinese culture, and Chinese tourists have a high respect and admiration for Mexico," the official said, adding that this creates two highly complementary markets.
According to the United Nations World Tourism Organization, China was one of the world's top four tourist destinations with 52.2 million international arrivals in 2009. Mexico ranked the 10th most visited destination with 21.5 million arrivals in that year.

AeroMexico 2Q Airline Passenger Traffic Up 36% On Year


JULY 14, 2011, 12:32 P.M
MEXICO CITY (Dow Jones)--Mexico's biggest airline, Grupo AeroMexico SAB (AEROMEX.MX), said Thursday its passenger traffic rose 36% in the second quarter compared with the year-ago period.
The increase was bolstered by a 30% rise in the number of passengers on domestic flights and a 55% spike in the number of passengers on international flights, the airline said in a statement.
AeroMexico listed on the Mexican Stock Exchange in April to raise around $330 million.
The carrier has benefited over the past year from the August bankruptcy of its chief domestic rival, Mexicana.
AeroMexico averaged an occupancy rate of 79.1% of seats during the second quarter compared with 74.8% in the April-June period of 2010.
The absence of Mexicana, however, has curbed traffic for Mexico's publicly traded airport operators.
For instance, passenger traffic at Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacifico SAB's (GAP.MX) airports slumped 2.3% on the year during the second quarter, as airlines gradually pick up routes abandoned by Mexicana.

MEXICO CITY | Wednesday July 20, 2011 Notimex | 12:38 El Universal


Aeromexico Group reached an agreement with the basis of pilots Aeromexico Connect, a contract revision early the years 2011, 2012 and 2013 in order to contribute to the expansion plan of the airline.

In a report sent to the Bolsa Mexicana de Valores (BMV), the air group says the agreement will give the company facilities in the scheme of promotions and trainings, as well as agility and competitiveness in the incorporation of new pilots to the companies airline.

In addition, he stresses, this multi-year agreement provides certainty to the workforce, as were agreed revisions to the Collective Bargaining Agreement for the years 2011, 2012 and 2013, which pilots receive an annual increase equivalent to inflation.

Stresses that this achievement is part of the expansion strategy of the company, including the historic agreement reached last December with the pilots of Aeromexico, the announcement of investment in own aircraft for the next biennium, increasing national and routes and frequencies international as well as the recent placement of shares on the BMV.

Aeromexico Group emphasized by this agreement seeks to promote the proper development of its pilots in the companies within the group, and accelerate the process of hiring new staff, which will result in tangible benefits for the whole plant in the medium and long deadlines.

The company also recognizes the willingness of pilots to reach an agreement, the negotiation successfully concluded four months before the date scheduled for review this year.

More record profits for AeroMexico in 2Q2011 as Mexican market recovers

28th July, 2011


© Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation
For the second consecutive quarter Aeromexico has recorded its highest level of profitability in at least 15 years. Mexico’s largest airline group has now made about USD300 million in net profits since the collapse of archrival Mexicana in Aug-2010, reversing several years of unprofitability. Group Aeromexico is now aiming to further improve its profitability and market share, particularly in the international market where it still has a relatively small presence.
Group Aeromexico on 27-Jul-2011 reported a 2Q2011 net profit of MXP534 million (USD46 million), compared to a loss of MXP51 million in 2Q2010. The group has now turned an even MXP1 billion in net profits in 1H2011, compared to a loss of MXP280 million in 1H2010. The unusually profitable first six months of 2011 – the first half of the year is typically the weaker half in Mexico – follows an even more profitable last six months of 2010, when Grupo Aeromexico posted a net profit of MXP2.4 billion.
In 2Q2011, group revenues surged by 43% to MXP8.639 billion, driven by a 46% increase in passenger revenues and a 92% increase in cargo revenues. Domestic passenger revenues were up 47% to MXP4.543 billion while international passenger revenues were up 45% to MXP3.124 billion.
Total operating costs were up only 36% to MXP6.880 billion despite a 61% increase in fuel costs. As a result Aeromexico Group turned an EBITDAR of MXP1.759 billion and an operating profit of MXP898 million for 2Q2011, representing increases of 77% and 454% respectively compared to the same period last year. The group also ended 2Q2011 with a healthy operating margin of 10.4%, compared to only 2.7% in 2Q2010.

The group says the revenue, net profit, EBITDAR and operating profit figures were all the highest that have been recorded for the second quarter in 15 years. In 1996, Aeromexico was bailed out by government holding company Cintra and renationalised. In 2007 Cintra finally sold Aeromexico and regional carrier Aerolitoral (which subsequently rebranded as Aeromexico Connect) to Banamex, which took the airline public again in Apr-2011.
Under Banamex, Grupo Aeromexico struggled to make money as a result of poor market conditions – which were particularly bad in 2009 due to a sluggish local economy and H1N1 – as well as intense competition with Mexicana and rapidly expanding low-cost carriers, which resulted in overcapacity. But in 2010 the group’s outlook improved dramatically as economic conditions improved and as Grupo Mexicana collapsed.
Efficiency gains achieved as unit costs decrease and fleet utilisation increases

Aeromexico also has become a significantly more efficient carrier over the last year in part by significantly increasing utilisation of its aircraft. Excluding fuel, unit costs decreased by 4% in 2Q2011 due to the group’s increased focus on “expense rationalisation and operating efficiency”.
In 2009 Aeromexico cut capacity, resulting in a lower average utilisation rates for most of its fleet. But capacity has increased significantly since Mexicana’s collapse in Aug-2010. Most of the capacity gains have been achieved by increasing utilisation although Aeromexico also has started to expand its overall fleet. Average aircraft utilisation was 11.4 hours in 2Q2011, compared to 10.3 in 2Q2010.
Aeromexico ended 2Q2011 with a group fleet of 100 aircraft, compared to 93 aircraft at the end of 2Q2010. Three of the additional seven aircraft were added during 2Q2011. The group says it took delivery of six aircraft in 2Q2011 but three aircraft were also returned at as their leases expired.

The 25% increase in capacity (ASKs) compared to 2Q2010 also has resulted in a more efficient utilisation of manpower. Wages and salaries increased 9% in 2Q2011 but with capacity up 25%, operating efficiency gains were realised and unit costs were reduced by 13%.
Mexicana’s exit also has led to a significant improvement in yields and load factors. The Mexican market had been suffering for years from over-capacity and the lowest load factors among all major markets in the Americas. In 2Q2011, Aeromexico achieved an average load factor of 79.1%, a 4.4ppt increase over 2Q2010.
Passenger yields were also up 8% compared to 2Q2010. As a result, 80% of the revenue increase achieved in 2Q2011 was created by higher volumes and 20% by higher fares. Total RPKs were up 32% in 2Q2011 and total passenger count was up 36% to 3.5 million, easily outstripping the 25% increase in ASKs. Aeromexico’s domestic passenger traffic was up 30% in 2Q2011 to 2.6 million passengers while international traffic was up 55% to 900,000.
Aeromexico also has seen its market share increase dramatically. Based on newly released 1H2011 statistics from Mexico’s DGAC, Group Aeromexico now has a 41% share of the domestic market. This includes a 20% for Aeromexico mainline and a 21% for Aeromexico Connect, which operates a fleet of E-190s and ERJ-145s on domestic and some international routes. Prior to Mexicana’s collapse, Group Aeromexico had about a 32% share of the domestic market.

Mexico’s three low-cost carriers now account for about 54% of Mexico’s domestic market. Based on 1H2011 DGAC data, Interjet has a 25% share of the market, followed by Volaris with an 18% share and VivaAerobus with an 11% share. A year ago these three carriers combined only had a 36% share of the market.
Jun-2011 represented the first month since Mexicana’s collapse in which total domestic traffic grew year-over-year. This represents a significant achievement as Groupo Mexicana (includes Mexicana mainline, low-cost unit Click and regional unit Link) had a 28% share of the total market. For 2Q2011, total domestic traffic in Mexico was up by 1%.

Total international passenger traffic in Mexico also grew by 2% in 2Q2011 (includes foreign and Mexican carriers). But unlike in the domestic market, in the international market Mexican carriers have still not completely filled the void left by Mexicana.
Among Mexican carriers, Mexicana accounted for about 64% of total international traffic. So far Mexican carriers have taken over about 60% of the international traffic previously carried by Mexicana while the remaining 40% has been taken over by foreign carriers. US carriers, which saw their traffic on Mexico routes increase by 11% in 1H2011 compared to 1H2010, have accounted for most of the gains by foreign carriers.
US carriers now account for 61% of total international passengers in Mexico, compared to only a 16% share by Mexican carriers, based on DGAC data for 1H2011. The 16% for Mexican carriers includes passengers carried to the US as well as all other international markets.

Among Mexican carriers, Group Aeromexico transports 77% of international passengers, including 69% at Aeromexico mainline and 8% at Aeromexico Connect. Volaris, which has been rapidly expanding its transborder operation this year, now accounts for a 22% share of the international market among Mexican carriers. VivaAerobus, which has a very limited operation to the US, accounts for 1%. Interjet currently only operates domestic services.

Aeromexico CEO Andres Conesa told CAPA last month that the carrier is working to gradually increase its share of the total international market. He pointed out that while Aeromexico now only has an 11% share of the total international market, this is up from 7% prior to Mexicana’s collapse. He says on an ASK basis, more than half of Grupo Aeromexico’s capacity is now international.
Aeromexico increasing capacity on transborder routes

Mr Conesa said Aeromexico has already increased capacity in the US market by about 50% over the last year. He says Aeromexico’s US operation, which was cut in 2009 in response to poor market conditions, is now at historical levels in terms of capacity.
The group launched four more new US routes earlier this month - Monterrey-Brownsville, Cancun-Miami, Monterrey-Chicago and Guadalajara-San Francisco. Mr Conesa said Aeromexico is continuing to add flights to the US, particularly to destinations in California. According to DGAC data, the US market accounts for 77% of Mexico’s international passengers or about 1.5 million passengers per month.
Grupo Mexicana also has been rapidly increasing its operation within Latin America. Service to Guatemala was launched earlier this month – the fourth new destination in Latin America and the Caribbean since last year. Service to Panama will begin in Sept-2011 and Mr Conesa says service to Caracas in Venezuela is expected to begin later this year.
New B737s to be delivered in 2012 and 1H2013

Mr Conesa said the 10 additional B737-700s Aeromexico has ordered using proceeds from its recent IPO will be used primarily to further increase capacity on international routes, in particular to the US and Canada. He said these aircraft are slated for delivery in 2012 and 1H2013.
In addition to the 10 aircraft that are covered under the new order, Aeromexico has committed to adding four B737s in 2H2011. Aeromexico currently operates 40 B737-700/800s, which are used on domestic trunk routes and medium-haul international services.
Grupo Aeromexico also has committed since its Apr-2011 IPO to acquire 10 more E190s. Mr Conesa said four of these aircraft will be delivered in 2H2011 with the other six currently slated to be delivered in 2012, 2013 and 2014. But he said Aeromexico is now talking to Embraer about accelerating the 2013 and 2014 deliveries to 2012. The additional E190s will be operated by Aeromexico Connect and primarily be used domestically although the carrier also uses its current fleet of eight E190s on some international routes to the US and Central America.
Aeromexico Connect also currently operates 39 ERJ145s. Mr Conesa said some of the additional E190s will be used to upgauge domestic routes that are now served with the smaller ERJ145s. But he said the group plans to keep all its ERJ145s and use them to test out new domestic markets. For example, the ERJ145 fleet will be used to launch new domestic services from Mexico City to Colima and Tepic, two smaller destinations not currently in the Grupo Aeromexico network.
On the widebody side, Aeromexico has added two B767s since Mexicana’s collapse and is planning to add one more B767 in 2H2011, giving it a widebody fleet of eight B767s and four B777s. The additional B767 will be used as a spare to improve the reliability of Aeromexico's long-haul operation.
First B787s to be delivered in mid 2013

Capacity growth on long-haul routes is likely not to come until summer 2013, when the first of the five B787s Aeromexico has on order are now slated for delivery. Aeromexico is now slated to receive three B787s in 2013 and two more B787s in 2014.
Mr Conesa said the group is potentially interested in acquiring additional widebody aircraft in the medium term and is now evaluating its options. This could include more B787s, more B777s or a new type currently not in the carrier's fleet. The new widebodies would replace the group's 12 B767s in the second half of this decade as well as potentially support further growth of the carrier's relatively small long-haul network. Aeromexico's long-haul network now consists of only three European destinations (Madrid, Barcelona and Paris) two Asian destinations (Shanghai and Tokyo) and three destinations in southern South America (Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo and Santiago).
Aeromexico’s Apr-2011 IPO raised MXN3.8 billion, most of which will be used to expand the group’s fleet and network, thereby ensuring it maintains its leadership position in the Mexican market. While Aeromexico since the IPO has recorded the highest first half profits in at least 15 years, the price of its shares have fallen by about 12%. Aeromexico’s shares, which are only traded on the Mexican stock exchange, are currently trading at MXN27.30, down from the IPO price of MXN31.

AeroMexico commences nonstop service to Monterrey


By STEVE CLARK/The Brownsville Herald


Brownsville South Padre Island International Airport weclomed the first AeroMexico nonstop flight from Monterrey Friday afternoon with a crowded ceremony at the airport terminal.

The AeroMexico RJ145 50-passenger jet nosed up to the terminal around 2 p.m. Brownsville Mayor Tony Martinez greeted the inaugural flight with a ribbon cutting and champagne toast in a terminal restaurant/lounge packed with various officials and executives, spectators and members of the media. AeroMexico, Mexico’s oldest and largest commercial carrier, announced three weeks ago its intent to begin Monterrey-to-Brownsville service from mid-July through mid-August as a test of the market dur-ing the height of the summer tourist season.
AeroMexico executives last week announced their decision to extend the service through Sept. 18, partly due to enthusiastic early demand — flights are booked through July — but also to test the market after the peak tourist season.
AeroMexico’s current plan is to resume service in April. Local officials, however, hope business travel will keep the planes full in September and beyond — ideally translating into year-round service. Brownsville and Monterrey do have significant business ties, notes Gil Salinas of the Brownsville Eco-nomic Development Council.
“Monterrey is the richest city in Mexico,” he said. “It’s like a New York almost. That’s where you go for business. That’s where we get a lot of leads from. The five companies that we’ve gotten in the last year, two of those are from Monterrey.”
Salinas said the city may have to consider financial incentives, such as the city has offered to other air-lines in the past, in order to keep AeroMexico around all year.
“It’s for us to lose, and that’s why we are moving forward with them and some more serious discus-sions about what we do during the off season,” Salinas said. “The hard part is what do we do October through March. That’s where we’re going to come in. It’s our job to help them generate that traffic, and we’re pretty confident we’ll help them at least hit their load factor, which in the airline business is about 70 percent. After 70 percent, that’s when you become profitable. We’re pretty confident we can at least hit that target.”
Although the airline’s current plan is to stop flying Sept. 18, Oscar Mejia, vice president of AeroMexico’s U.S. and Canada divisions, said that could change if the planes are still full.
“If we see the demand is there beyond September, we’re going to keep flying,” he said.
For now, round-trip flights will be offered on the peak travel days of Friday and Sunday, though Mejia said the company is looking forward to adding another day. Subsequent phases may also include adding service to other Mexican cities served by the Mexico City-based airline, and bringing in jets with higher seating capacity. At any rate, AeroMexico is looking forward to a long-term relationship with Brownsville, he said, citing the company’s habit of sticking with a market once it’s established there.
“One of our policies is if we start to fly, we keep going,” Mejia said. “We don’t move from city to city.”
Following Friday’s ceremony, select officials, executives and dignitaries boarded the AeroMexico jet for the half-hour flight back to Monterrey for another ceremony. Mayor Martinez, shortly before climb-ing aboard, expressed his pleasure at the airline’s arrival in Brownsville.
“I think this is the beginning of a great thing,” he said. “Our two countries are divided by a river, but not by culture and not by families, not by anything else. There’s a lot of love and a lot of friendship that I see coming out of this because we’ll get a chance to visit with each other. And I do like to see the moun-tains every once in a while. It’s a great thing.”
