Interesting to see AM can buy Mexicana Airlines if the price is good, eh?

Mexicana Airlines can be sold…if there is good price


The owners of Mexican of Aviation are businessmen, and we should we say: good men for the business. We speak of the two main owners, Gastón Azcárraga and Angel Losada. Both they are of full in the aviation, and they wanted to buy AeroMéxico. But them they were impeded. And they have insisted time and again that in Mexico the market gives for only have an airline insignia or flag.

And now that the SCT has insisted on fusing both airlines, Mexicana and AeroMéxico, the owners of the first one are pragmatists and they tell it openly: if there is a good price, we sell.

And it be evident: to Gastón Azcárraga and Angel Losada has gone them well with the airline, they have done it to grow, with international routes, and operating efficiencies that include agreements with the unions.
Nevertheless, neither Azcárraga neither Losada are martyrs. If AeroMéxico, headline by José Luis Barraza, as well as all its shareholders and Banamex, they decide to try to buy Mexicana Airlines, surely Azcárraga and Losada will listen attentively the offering.

The aeronautic sector in Mexico is complicated. We are speaking of two men that saw in the airline a fundamental piece of synergies, since both have hotel groups. Gastón has the Group Inns, with the American Festival and Festival Inn, while Angel operates the hotels Intercontinental President.
And if they, that manage to meet the hotel trade with the aviation, find difficulties to operate the airline, the situation of the sector he should be very complex.
Of the other side, of that of AeroMéxico, the financial situation is neither simple: they have just accepted an injection of capital and all they entered. Even Banamex, directed by Manuel Medina Moorish, participated in the increase of capital of the airline.
Probably they be encouraged to buy. It do not we know to certain science, but that they have existed analysis and intents of the authority to fuse them, neither doubt it. By the quick thing, those of Mexican, as pragmatic businessmen, they are open to listen offerings… if is that there are them.
An anecdotal data. More than the half of the shareholders of AeroMéxico, that are a strong group of businessmen, they do not fly for their own airline, but by their private airplanes.
Inside the board meeting there are strong businessmen as the Juan Francisco Beckman, María Assumption Aramburuzabala, Fernando Channels Clariond, Mark it Channels Clariond, Antonio Cosío, Valentín Ten Morodo, José Eduardo Nicolas Esteve, Eugenio Heron Blacksmith, Hector Beam, Ricardo Martin Bringas and Eduardo Tricio.
We insist that is a matter of an anecdotal data, that does not qualify neither has another intention more than the curious thing, since we are sure that the president of the counsel, José Luis Barraza as well as their director, Andrés Conesa, yes they fly for AeroMéxico.
Nevertheless, not to it stops being curious that the majority of the shareholders and prominent businessmen, by different reasons, from privacy to security, prefer to fly for its own private airplanes. Peculiarities that are given in our country.

Mexicana puede venderse…si hay buen precio




Los dueños de Mexicana de Aviación son hombres de negocios, y debemos decir: buenos hombres para los negocios. Hablamos de los dos principales dueños, Gastón Azcárraga y Ángel Losada. Ambos están de lleno en la aviación, y quisieron comprar Aeroméxico. Pero se los impidieron. Y han insistido una y otra vez que en México el mercado da para sólo tener una aerolínea insignia o bandera.
Y ahora que la SCT ha insistido en fusionar ambas aerolíneas, Mexicana y Aeroméxico, los dueños de la primera son pragmáticos y lo dicen abiertamente: si hay un buen precio, nosotros vendemos.
Y conste: a Gastón Azcárraga y Ángel Losada les ha ido bien con la aerolínea, la han hecho crecer, con rutas internacionales, y eficiencias operativas que incluyen acuerdos con los sindicatos.
Sin embargo, ni Azcárraga ni Losada son mártires. Si Aeroméxico, encabezado por José Luis Barraza, así como todos sus accionistas y Banamex, deciden intentar comprar Mexicana, seguramente Azcárraga y Losada escucharán atentamente la oferta.
El sector aeronáutico en México es complicado. Estamos hablando de dos hombres que vieron en la aerolínea una pieza fundamental de sinergias, ya que ambos tienen grupos hoteleros. Gastón tiene el Grupo Posadas, con los Fiesta Americana y Fiesta Inn, mientras que Ángel opera los hoteles Presidente Intercontinental.
Y si ellos, que logran reunir la hotelería con la aviación, encuentran dificultades para operar la aerolínea, la situación del sector debe estar muy compleja.
Del otro lado, del de Aeroméxico, la situación financiera tampoco es sencilla: acaban de aceptar una inyección de capital y todos entraron. Incluso Banamex, dirigido por Manuel Medina Mora, participó en el aumento de capital de la aerolínea.
Probablemente se animen a comprar. No lo sabemos a ciencia cierta, pero de que han existido análisis e intentos de la autoridad para fusionarlas, ni lo dude. Por lo pronto, los de Mexicana, como hombres de negocios pragmáticos, están abiertos a escuchar ofertas… si es que las hay.
Un dato anecdótico. Más de la mitad de los accionistas de Aeroméxico, que son un grupo fuerte de empresarios, no vuelan por su propia aerolínea, sino por sus aviones privados.
Dentro del consejo de administración hay empresarios fuertes como Juan Francisco Beckman, María Asunción Aramburuzabala, Fernando Canales Clariond, Marcelo Canales Clariond, Antonio Cosío, Valentín Diez Morodo, José Eduardo Nicolás Esteve, Eugenio Garza Herrera, Héctor Madero,Ricardo Martín Bringas y Eduardo Tricio.
Insistimos en que se trata de un dato anecdótico, que no califica ni tiene otra intención más que lo curioso, ya que estamos seguros que el presidente del consejo, José Luis Barraza así como su director, Andrés Conesa, sí vuelan por Aeroméxico.
Sin embargo, no deja de ser curioso que la mayoría de los accionistas y empresarios prominentes, por distintas razones, desde privacidad hasta seguridad, prefiera volar por sus propios aviones privados. Rarezas que se dan en nuestro país.

I hope there's no merger at all to be honest. Both airlines need to find ways to stay afloat and survive no matter the scenario brings. Which is important to show who is actually willing to take the honor and challenge as to who will the Naional Carrier of Mexico, plain and simple. It just seems that every article and/or forum you read always shows as if AM is the one going down. You will hear about financial charts to the usual "I heard" theory. It simple never fails but if you see who's behind and everything else you can clearly see that AM is really not that bad. Maybe bad planners when it comes to destinations but $$$$ is always available...

Now if you see the competion, you can't honesty tell me that their on a better situation...

Let's look at the scenario without being a genious:

New Livery$$$
New image (Corporate, airports, and everything else that needs it $$$
New planes for Link/Click $$$
New routes (GRU,LEMD, & London) $$$
New National routes $$$
New Widebodies$$$$$$$$$

This is just to a name a few expensive changes. Now the capital comes from Hoteliers and whatnot. Remember we had a crisis (low hotel bookings) now unfortunately (Swine Flu) Tourism dropped over night to the lowest...So there's no money coming in!!!!

So how do you expect the Airline to pay for all these new Changes/Upgrades from now on. yeah things will likely get better, but ain't going to happen anytime soo, that's for sure Which brings me back to square one, MX had to of started all those rumors AM was going down and they wanted to buy them off and who know what else. To me they are simply taking the spot light of them while they figure something out. Come on you don't need make it complicated, you can clearly see who is in dyer need of $$$$ assitance in order to survive. Oh and before I forget, AM Exec's said NO to a merger from the beginning...

So where you able to snap some pix???

State pays for empty airline seats


Updated at: 06/16/2009 7:18 PM
By: Jeff Maher, Eyewitness News 4; Matthew Kappus, www.KOB.com



An Aeromexico flight taxies on the runway at the Sunport Tuesday
Albuquerque's only flight to Mexico has been having some major problems filling seats—and the airline is passing some of their losses on to taxpayers.
AeroMexico's flights to Chihuahua from the Sunport have not been as popular as many had hoped. But under an agreement the state reached with AeroMexico in February, tax payers will pay the airline for up to 23 empty seats. The plane has 50 seats.
According to Sunport officials, occupancy numbers for the route when it launched in February was about 23 percent to Chihuahua and 21 percent on the way back. In March and April, the numbers dropped down to 21 percent and 19 percent.
City Councilor Michael Cadigan says the state's funding is just bad economics.
"If there were a demand for flights from here to Chihuahua city, AeroMexico would be fulfilling it right now under a good capitalist model," he said.
State officials say so far, they've paid $90,000 in taxpayer money for all the empty seats and that will continue through August. The legislature set aside $350,000 for the route.
Cadigan says it was a bad idea from the beginning.
"The idea of handing out free money to corporations to try and create markets that don't exist, just doesn't make sense when we're broke," the Albuquerque city councilor said.
Fred Mondragon, the state's secretary of economic development, says the route has suffered because of the recession, swine flu and drug violence. He thinks better days are ahead for AeroMexico.
"I'm comfortable that the numbers will continue rising," he said. "We're seeing groups of students coming in, we're seeing business people, we're seeing trade groups that are once again capitalizing on the availability of direct flights"

Aeromexico Confirms Commitment to Airline Service between Albuquerque, New Mexico and Chihuahua City, Mexico


June 16, 2009 09:54 PM Eastern Daylight Time




Airline Actively Marketing Three Weekly Non-stop Flights To Build Traffic

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AeroMexico, the global airline of Latin America, confirmed today its commitment to provide non-stop service between Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Chihuahua City, Chihuahua, Mexico. The historic launch of the first scheduled flight service between these two cities occurred this year on February 9 with a major event and ribbon cutting attended by New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson and Chihuahua Governor Jose Reyes Baeza..
Frank Galan, Vice President, U.S. Division, AeroMexico, said, “The airline plans to continue this international airline service and is working hard to make the route a success by actively marketing it, giving it all the attention it deserves to build passenger traffic.”
“We have discussed our service with officials in Albuquerque and all agree these flights serve an important purpose. It is our intention to continue service as long as we have an agreement that makes sense with our partners and in the current marketplace,” Galan said.
AeroMexico has scheduled non-stop flights three days a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between Albuquerque and Chihuahua City. Connecting service is available in Chihuahua City to Mexico City, Guadalajara, Monterrey, Torreon and Tijuana, Mexico.
While passenger loads have continued to be a challenge for AeroMexico on the flights between Albuquerque and Chihuahua City, Galan said the airline is committed to giving this service every opportunity to be successful.
Challenges to the new AeroMexico route have been the health warnings and sharp decline in tourism between the United States and Mexico due to the recent health issue as well as the impact of the current economy.
The airline believes that there still can be sufficient market demand for the route now that the health warnings have been lifted, the economy is showing some signs of recovery, and the service has an opportunity to succeed on its own merits.
AeroMexico is proud to be part of efforts to expand travel, business and tourism opportunities between these two neighboring international states,” added Galan.
AeroMexico and its subsidiary, AeroMexico Connect, currently operate more than 600 daily flights through the airline’s new Terminal 2 at its Mexico City International Airport hub to more than 45 destinations in Mexico, 16 U.S. locations in 11 states, two cities in two Canadian provinces, and 12 major cities that include Buenos Aires, Paris and Tokyo in 11 other countries in Latin America, Europe and Asia. U.S. cities served are Los Angeles, Ontario (Ca.), San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle-Tacoma, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Albuquerque, Denver, San Antonio, Houston, Atlanta, Chicago, New York City, Orlando and Miami. AeroMexico Vacations provides customized vacation travel packages throughout this network. The airline also offers connecting service to other international destinations through its SkyTeam global airline alliance with 11 full member carriers and three associate carriers. AeroMexico has been recognized for its award-winning style of personalized in-flight service, one of the world’s best on-time flight records, the highest safety and quality standards ratings, outstanding reliability and baggage handling performance, and exceptional value based on its competitive fares and superior service.

Recommendable to clarify benefits of Convenient Aeroméxico-Mexican fusion



to clarify yes this fusion would represent, "to do an or to create the consortium that control both", therefore runs the risk to lose some of the two marks, today well positioned on a worldwide basis.

Sea, 16/06/2009 - 12:44

Mexico City.- The secretary of the Commission of Transportation of the Camera of Representatives, Jesus Ramírez Estabros, assured that the rumors for the fusion of AeroMexico and Mexican they are increasingly more strong, although the work plan does not know itself that would undertake the airlines and above all the benefits that this would have for the domestic market.

To four years of the dissolution of Cintra, a contralora that operated at two o'clock airlines, the Office of the secretary of Communications and Transportation (SCT) declared that the union would proceed given the little demand of passage that prevails in the national territory, which would cause to remain us without main airlines, indicated.

The also pilot aviator spoke on the convenience to clarify yes this fusion would represent, "to do an or to create the consortium that control both", therefore otherwise runs the risk to lose some of the two marks that today they are found well positioned on a worldwide basis.

Join them again would signify to lose competitiveness with the remainder of the world, and also in the internal thing because "here you do small children the main airlines", while in countries as France and Holland the project was to create a great consortium, mentioned in radio interview with Carlos González.

The country is not known if will go him better because the airlines join, added, that is to say there is not adequate data neither studies that they support with seriousness a change in the aeronautic sector, declared the representative of the PRI.

It recalled that the airlines register recurrent problems by the deficient internal aeronautic system, therefore the airports in the country elevate the costs of operation to a degree "tremendous".

Besides, the airlines are outside of the reach of the income of the Mexican; it explains because only flies the 3,0 hundred of the national population, when this level should patrol the 50 and 60 percent; the airplane is a middle of indispensable transportation for Mexico by their size and orography.

[SIZE=3]Finally, the exdirigente of the Union Association of Pilots and Aviators (REEL) said that in the domestic market, the airlines do not think about the conditions of the users, and a clear example of this, are the high rates that prevail, added the legislator. [/SIZE

Recomendable aclarar beneficios de fusión AeroMéxico-Mexicana

Conveniente aclarar sí esta fusión representaría, “hacer una o crear el consorcio que controle ambas”, pues se corre el riesgo de perder alguna de las dos marcas, hoy bien posicionadas a nivel mundial.
  • <LI style="CURSOR: pointer" onclick=history.back();> <LI style="CURSOR: pointer">

Ciudad de México.
- El secretario de la Comisión de Transporte de la Cámara de Diputados, Jesús Ramírez Estabros, aseguró que los rumores para la fusión de Aeromexico y Mexicana son cada vez más fuertes, aunque se desconoce el plan de trabajo que emprenderían las aerolíneas y sobre todo los beneficios que esto tendría para el mercado doméstico.
A cuatro años de la disolución de Cintra, una contralora que operaba a las dos líneas aéreas, la Secretaría de Comunicaciones y Transporte (SCT) manifestó que la unión procedería dada la poca demanda de pasaje que prevalece en el territorio nacional, lo cual provocaría quedarnos sin aerolíneas troncales, señaló.
El también piloto aviador habló sobre la conveniencia de aclarar sí esta fusión representaría, “hacer una o crear el consorcio que controle ambas”, pues en caso contrario se corre el riesgo de perder alguna de las dos marcas que hoy se encuentran bien posicionadas a nivel mundial.
Juntarlas otra vez significaría perder competitividad con el resto del mundo, y también en lo interno porque “aquí haces chiquitas las aerolíneas troncales”, mientras en países como Francia y Holanda el proyecto fue crear un gran consorcio, acotó en entrevista radiofónica con Carlos González.
El país no se sabe si le irá mejor porque las aerolíneas se junten, añadió, es decir no hay datos adecuados ni estudios que respalden con seriedad un cambio en el sector aeronáutico, manifestó el diputado del PRI.
Recordó que las aerolíneas registran problemas recurrentes por el deficiente sistema aeronáutico interno, pues los aeropuertos en el país elevan los costos de operación a un grado “tremendo”.
Además, las aerolíneas están fuera del alcance del ingreso de los mexicano; ello explica porque sólo vuela el 3.0 ciento de la población nacional, cuando este nivel debería rondar el 50 y 60 por ciento; el avión es un medio de transporte imprescindible para México por su tamaño y orografía.
Finalmente, el exdirigente de la Asociación Sindical de Pilotos y Aviadores (ASPA) dijo que en el mercado nacional, las aerolíneas no piensan en las condiciones de los usuarios, y un ejemplo claro de esto, son las elevadas tarifas que prevalecen, agregó el legislador.

Possibly a new route in the works, San Diego-Loreto-Mexico City???

Southern Baja resort project falls victim to financial woes
Government agency asks to take over struggling development

By Sandra Dibble, Union-Tribune Staff Writer
2:00 a.m. June 18, 2009

Like other tourist-oriented real estate projects on the Baja California peninsula, the planned 6,000-unit Loreto Bay development has struggled under daunting market conditions.
With fewer than 800 units sold, the Mexican development company TSD Loreto Partners this month announced the suspension of construction and operations. Last week, the golf course and 155-room hotel were shuttered. But yesterday, Mexico's tourism development agency, Fonatur, said it was asking for custody of both facilities so they could reopen while a buyer is sought for the project.
“The golf course is an important attraction in Loreto, and its loss would be a great blow, from which this tourist destination would not easily recover,” Narciso Agúndez, governor of Baja California Sur, said in a statement Sunday after meeting in Mexico City with Fonatur Director Miguel Gómez Montt.
Heavily marketed to U.S. and Canadian baby boomers, the Villages of Loreto Bay was launched in 2002 by an Arizona company as a series of environmentally friendly seaside communities. For Fonatur, Loreto Bay was to be the cornerstone of a major tourist destination planned since the 1970s in this picturesque desert community about 750 miles from San Diego.
Supporters of the Fonatur plan said it would bring much-needed development to Loreto, a town of 15,000 founded in 1697 as a Jesuit mission. For all its beauty and rich history, the town offered few economic opportunities to local residents, they said.
But critics said the region lacks the water resources for a proposal that they said would bring in up to 220,000 residents. What no one foresaw was the drastic drop in demand for vacation homes as the U.S. and Canadian economies suffered and credit grew tighter.
A 2005 study commissioned by the San Diego-based International Community Foundation stated that desalination is the only apparent option if Loreto were to grow beyond 30,000 people. But desalination, it warned, could potentially damage ecosystems in the Loreto Bay National Marine Park.
In a four-sentence announcement sent to Loreto Bay homeowners June 6, TSD Loreto Partners, whose major lender is Citigroup Property Investors, stated that “due to the challenging situation in the international real estate and financial markets, all operating and construction activities for Loreto Bay will be suspended.”
Though several potential buyers have visited the project in recent months, the project “has been unable to secure a buyer or new investor,” the statement said.
In the statement released Sunday, Agúndez pledged support for Loreto Bay, saying “Loretanos are not alone in their effort to make Loreto develop through tourism.”
Agúndez announced that the Mexican airline AeroMexico next month will resume a San Diego-Loreto-Mexico City flight suspended in 2006, though AeroMexico did not confirm the flights yesterday.
Agúndez said the suspension of operations at the project has led to the layoff of 400 workers. Because many are from mainland Mexico, that poses a potential “social problem” for the local community, said Ramón Romero Amador, the municipality's secretary general.
In a telephone interview, he said the government has secured funds to send workers back to their home communities.
Still, he added, “there is much optimism and hope, and we believe that this project will continue.”
Pascal Pellegrino, president of Loreto's Hotel Association, said he supported the government's actions. The development, he said “needs to be sold soon, so that it doesn't remain as an unfinished project.”
Pellegrino said Loreto needs growth, “but we must keep it on a human dimension. We want projects developed with the standards of conservation that are applied around the world.”
Brian Durnian, a Napa Valley real estate agent, purchased a three-bedroom, two-bath adobe at Loreto Bay with his brother. With construction on the $400,000 property finished three years ago, Durnian said he was not worried.
Durnian said that like many buyers, he was drawn to the region because it offered a slower pace than Cabo San Lucas, at the peninsula's southern tip. “This is more planned growth. I love it down there.”

Not so good news...

Aeromexico and Mexicana lost 6.400 billion pesos

Boeing 777-200 ER



MEXICO, June. 18 .- AeroMexico and Mexicana will lose this year about 6 million 400 thousand pesos, because the financial crisis facing the effect was exacerbated by influenza A H1N1, said Salvador Villaseñor, director of the National Federation of Aviation Sector (Fedssa).

Such losses of 3 thousand 500 million pesos will be recorded in the balance in AeroMexico and Mexicana, said.

"The biggest impact for the national airlines will be after September, we will now live on a recovery for the high season.

"From September we will be living in the Cain," he said.

Villaseñor said that during the talks that have workers with the companies, it was reported that only health alert will cause a financial loss for AeroMéxico thousand 200 million pesos and one billion Mexican pesos, which then canceled more than a thousand each flight due to this epidemic.

According to Villaseñor, AeroMéxico savings needs of their employees by 540 million Mexican pesos and 500 pesos.

On the level of losses, both companies are working with unions to reach agreements to achieve this cost reduction, but in some cases already discussed cutting squares.

These would be based on the fleet that have crippled by low occupancy and land not because they need their services.

In that sense, AeroMexico and Mexicana 150 places lower, 141 reported Lizette Clavel, secretary general of the Association of Aviation Surcharges (ASSA).

According to Clavel, the two companies decided to stop between 5 and 7 aircraft.

AeroMexico demanded the union to be in this week when defining the cut, while the Mexican term imposed expires at the end of the month.

The pilots union also suffer the consequences of the cuts. AeroMexico traded on the number that will be fired, acknowledged Leonardo Sanchez, spokesman for the Association of Aviation Pilots.

Meanwhile, the ground workers union who work for Independence AeroMéxico revised schemes to reduce any extra revenue to the plant workers still on the confidence to avoid cuts.

Mexico City Airport Sues Carriers For Withholding Fees




MEXICO CITY -(Dow Jones)- The Mexico City International Airport has taken legal action against local carriers AeroMexico and Aviacsa, which it accuses of failing to hand over millions of dollars in airport fees they charge passengers.
AeroMexico, one of the country's two largest airlines, owes the airport 390 million pesos ($29.2 million), while the smaller Aviacsa owes MXN42 million ($ 3.1 million), said Hector Velazquez, director of the airport, in an interview Thursday on Mexico's Radio Formula.
The airport, known as AICM, filed lawsuits against both airlines last year.
"They have to reimburse us for the money, and there are economic penalties if they don't give it to us on time," Velazquez said.
He indicated that Aviacsa and AeroMexico are the only airlines that haven't handed over the fees, which, along with taxes, are paid by passengers when they buy airline tickets.
An AICM spokeswoman said the fee currently amounts to MXN195 per passenger for domestic flights and MXN240 for international flights, plus value-added tax.
Velazquez said the airport doesn't have authority to deny the carriers service for withholding the fees.
Officials from the two airlines weren't immediately available to comment.

^ so you think it's the same ol' story then? It sounds serious enough not to stop and wonder how this would affect AeroMexico's business in the long run. Especially when we have merger's and companies going belly up this is definitely not helping AM's cause...

I also look forward to viewing your pix!
