By the way, this thread could change its name for something like: Avianca Colombia´s Flag carrier or something that makes reference to its importance on the america´s aviation, because right now it looks very simple.

Avianca and SAM fusion will be defined this week, Efromovich goes for VarigLog

Business of carriage of passengers, cargo and mail from the Colombian-Brazilian businessman German Efromovich, controller of the group Synergy and Avianca, take flight.


In 2008, he acquired the Colombian-Dutch airline Tampa Cargo to expand the services of mail and cargo holds because of the fleet of Avianca and other airlines did not provide sufficient capacity.

Moreover, because it considers the key chain in the aviation business, is also owner of the land transport company Transmeta.

Now Efromovich signed an option that will bear fruit if given the option to take control of VarigLog, the company of former flagship airline Varig and that Brazil is in a recovery process of their judicial duties since March this year.

Besides Tampa Cargo and Avianca, Efromovich owns companies ocean, in Brazil; Helicol and SAM in Colombia, VIP in Ecuador, and apparently has another option to purchase 80 percent of the Ecuadorian Aerogal too.

Reveals the magazine Exame Portal 'in Brazil, Ocean VariLog will manage until the resolution of pending court cases involving partners, and invest $ 30 million to solve the financial problems of short-term the company.

In addition, the company will use Efromovich systems and voice their airlines to recover the cargo airline.

VarigLog faced problems since 2007 when the U.S. fund Matlin Patterson, controlled by the Chinese Lap Chan, entered into disputes with Brazilian Marco Antonio Audi and Marcos Haftel.

Under Brazilian law, a foreigner can not have more than 20 percent of a local airline.

However, owners of VarigLog had allegedly evaded the rule and in practice the EU fund controlled. And two years ago to try to fix the mess, and Audi Haftel replied that the authorities could take control of VariLog, but without fresh capital.

However, in May this year the problems between the partners were aggravated because Chan Lup, a nationalized Brazilian citizen china and sister Lap Chan, managed to win a case before the Court of Justice of Sao Paulo to gain control of VariLog.

So before the legal confrontation between Chan and Haftel Audi, the airline was faced with difficulties in obtaining financing and part of their earnings are frozen by Brazilian courts.

VarigLog operates five aircraft and has an annual turnover of approximately $ 265 million.

Where the judicial process of recovery to get to revive VariLog, Efromovich must exercise the right to purchase under the contract. The main interest of the employer who has the two nationalities seem to be the cellars and areas that the airline cargo holds at some airports in the neighboring country.

Any part of the plan Efromovich be one of the great players of the business aviation in Latin America and operationally integrate their businesses.

This plan will have new episodes this year when Ocean Air renamed Avianca Brazil Avianca Ecuador and VIP.

However, as VIP Ocean retain its name to the authorities of their countries and common processes and integrate only the traditional red and white aircraft to reduce costs and expand services.

Efromovich with the idea of this plan is that the commercial management of its airline passenger and cargo remains under the umbrella of Avianca, ie, without merging, Ocean, and even VIP Aerogal, which has signed an agreement code sharing, lose their legal independence join synergies among themselves and with Avianca, Tampa Cargo and Helicol.

Otherwise occur with the Colombian SAM airline, to be legally acquired by Avianca, in a decision to be taken during the special meetings of shareholders of those airlines that were announced this week in Medellin and Barranquilla.

WRAPUP 1-Avianca, TACA to merge, AeroMexico eyes deal
Wed Oct 7, 2009 6:45pm EDT

* Avianca shareholders to own two-thirds of new company
* AeroMexico looks at stock deals
* Airlines struggle to cut costs in tough economy (Recasts; wraps in AeroMexico, European airline details)

By Nelson Renteria and Tomas Sarmiento


MEXICO CITY/SAN SALVADOR, Oct 7 (Reuters) - Latin American airlines Avianca and TACA said on Wednesday they will merge and AeroMexico said it is looking at deals with rivals as carriers around the world struggle with a deep downturn.

In a deal worth $3 billion in combined annual sales, El Salvador-based TACA and Colombia's Avianca said they will join operations to cut costs and bolster their clout in the region.

Avianca's shareholders will control two thirds of the new company, with the rest in the hands of TACA owners, TACA chief executive Roberto Kriete told reporters in San Salvador.

Underscoring the damage the global economic slump has done to the airline industry, AeroMexico, one of Mexico's two main carriers, said it is interested in stock deals with local and foreign players to help improve efficiency.

"What we are analyzing, beyond commercial alliances, are investment alliances where it isn't a merger but stock stakes between two groups," AeroMexico Chief Executive Andres Conesa told reporters at an event in Mexico City.

Hit by the economic slowdown, airlines around the world are struggling with weak demand and volatile fuel prices, although some carriers have said they see early signs of improvement.

In Europe, Aer Lingus (AERL.I) said on Wednesday it will ax nearly one in five jobs and cut salaries to secure its survival, a day after British Airways (BAY.L) announced plans to cut the equivalent of 1,700 cabin crew. [ID:nL7615726]

Citigroup (C.N) and local investors bought money-losing AeroMexico from Mexico's government in 2007 for about $250 million but have struggled to turn it around.

SEPARATE BRANDS

Privately held Avianca and TACA will remain separate brands for now, but together they would have 129 planes and more than 100 destinations in the Americas and Europe, Avianca CEO Fabio Villegas said at the news conference in the Salvadoran capital.

The deal has yet to be approved by regulators.

Avianca, with sales of $1.9 billion last year, is controlled by Colombian-Brazilian businessman German Efromovich while TACA has been owned by the Kriete family since 1961.

TACA, which flies to 22 countries in the Americas and nine cities in the United States, was founded in 1931 as a one-airplane operation with a contract to the Honduran government.

"The joining of the airlines is part of... what's happening in the industry," Kriete said. "This puts us on par with Latin America's largest airlines."

Chilean airline LAN (LAN.SN) LFL.SN, one of Latin America's biggest air carriers, said in August it was interested in deals to help it expand in Colombia, Brazil, Mexico and Central America.

Also in August, Gol Linhas Aereas (GOLL4.SA)(GOL.N), Brazil's No. 2 airline, said it was planning to sell stock to raise cash to let it take advantage of market opportunities.

TACA (and all it's holdings; TACA Regional lines) is not a "subsidiary", it wasn't purchased by Avianca. Just like Air France isnt a subsidiary of KLM, or vice versa, it was a strategic alliance. TACA is a partner.

is there any difference between traveling in Business class in the Avianca Airbus 330 and the 319?. I'm going to travel soon and I have the option to go to CLO from JFK through MDE in a A319, or travel through BOG in a A330 and the connection in a A319. Both cases would be in Business class

Yes there is; both planes have personalized entertainment; however A330's bussiness class seats are better than A-319's.
