AIRBUS TO OPEN TUNISIA PLANT

European planemaker Airbus will build a components factory in Tunisia as part of an expanded restructuring plan targeting 1 billion euros of extra cuts spread across parent EADS, its top executive said.

The plans will be unveiled to Airbus unions on Tuesday alongside 650 million euros (522 million pounds) of extra savings which are the Toulouse-based planemaker's share of the group total, EADS Chief Executive Louis Gallois told Le Monde in an interview.
(....)

French supplier Latecoere had planned to add a new factory in Tunisia to operate more leanly if it had succeeded in buying Airbus's Meaulte and Saint Nazaire plants in France.


"Airbus will take over Latecoere's proposal to set up in Tunisia to make ordinary parts and invest in more sophisticated production in France, especially for composites. We'll do the same in Germany and Spain."

Syphax Airlines

23 April 2013, 12:10 GMT | By Rebecca Spong

The new Tunisian airline is targeting capital markets to fund its expansion

Structure

Syphax Airlines was launched in March 2012 as Tunisia’s first privately owned airline, and its first flight took place on 29 April 2012. The carrier was set up by Mohamed Frikha, an entrepreneur, who established Tunisian software engineering company Telnet in 1994.

Frikha used money raised from Telnet’s initial public offering in April 2011, along with an approximate 20 per cent stake from Telnet to set up the airline. It was launched with TD10m ($6.3m) of capital.

Syphax Airlines’ main base is at the airport of Sfax Thyna in the south of Tunisia. It also operates flights from Djerba and Tunis. Currently, it flies to Paris and Marseille in France, Tripoli and Sebha in Libya, Istanbul in Turkey, and a newly launched destination of Casablanca in Morocco. The airline was permitted to fly from Djerba and Sfax from April 2012, but had to wait until October of that year for an operating licence to fly from Tunis-Carthage airport, when it launched its Paris service, landing at Charles de Gaulle airport.

The delay in the Tunis airport licence was in part due to resistance from national carrier Tunisair and its reluctance to compete with the new airline over the same routes.

Operations

Syphax Airlines was established with a fleet of just two Airbus 319s purchased for $55m. The aircraft were named Karama and Hurriya, meaning dignity and freedom, in reference to the country’s 2011 revolution.

In January 2013, the airline placed a further order with Airbus for three A320NEOs (new engine option) and three A320CEOs (current engine option). This agreement will bring the airline’s fleet up to eight aircraft. The A320NEO family of aircraft will come into service from 2015 and incorporate latest-generation engines and large ‘sharklet’ wing-tip devices, which aim to deliver up to 15 per cent in fuel savings.

Syphax Airlines positions itself as a hybrid between the low-cost airline model and a conventional carrier. It aims to offer reduced ticket prices, but also the services found on regular airlines. The airline provides charter services, but most of its business is focused on regular commercial traffic.

At the end of 2012, non-charter passenger traffic accounted for 57.6 per cent of passenger revenues, with 72,248 passengers transported by the airline that year. Charter activity represented 42.4 per cent of passenger revenues, with 45,323 passengers transported.

In the first half of 2012, the airline recorded a turnover of TD3.2m and a loss of TD9.4m. The company’s capital stood at TD601,000.

The carrier runs three flights a week between Sfax and Paris, as well as a daily service between Tunis and Paris. Its Sfax-Tripoli route is serviced four times a week and there is a twice-weekly flight from Sfax to Sebha. It also operates two flights a week to Istanbul from Sfax.

Ambitions

Syphax Airlines is aiming to carve out a greater market share and challenge the dominance of national carrier, Tunisair. The airline was established in 1948, and in 2011, it transported 3.2 million passengers. By contrast, Syphax Airlines has about 1.2 per cent of the market.

One of Frikha’s aims is to use the airline to boost the Sfax region’s economy by generating new employment opportunities.

This year, Syphax Airlines is looking to increase the number of destinations it services. It has recently announced new flights to Casablanca in Morocco and Jeddah in Saudi Arabia. It also aims to launch twice-weekly flights to the Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso, as well as a weekly service to Beijing, and flights to Montreal, New York and Rio de Janeiro.

The airline is also looking to list on the Tunis bourse to raise funds for its expansion. On 18 April, it secured approval from the Financial Market Council to be admitted to the Alternative Investment Market on the Tunis Stock Exchange.

* Launched carrier months after revolution

* Sees advantages in investing during crisis

* Shares have underperformed since listing in June

* But passenger numbers rising rapidly

* Ordered six Airbus planes in July

TUNIS, Oct 27 (Reuters) - The growth of a small Tunisian airline over the past two years is a rare success story in an economy ravaged by the country's 2011 revolution - and it points to the potential for more successes if political stability can be restored.

Corporate investment and tourist arrivals have shrunk while unemployment and inflation have risen since the overthrow of Tunisia's autocratic leader Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali in January 2011 launched a protracted period of political tensions.

Two murders of left-wing politicians triggered months of unrest this year; the ruling Islamist party and the opposition began talks last week on forming a non-partisan cabinet that will hopefully govern until elections next year.

It has been a poor environment in which to run a business, but Syphax Airlines has grown since Tunisian businessman Mohammed Frikha established it in 2011, just months after the revolution.

Syphax, which links Tunisian cities to destinations such as Paris, Istanbul, Jeddah and Tripoli in Libya, has expanded from operating two planes to four, and in July ordered six Airbus jets worth a total of $576 million, according to their list prices.

"It is important to launch investments in times of crisis," Frikha, 50, said in an interview at the Reuters Middle East Investment Summit.

"It's true there are difficulties, but success may be double because of the availability of government incentives and guarantees...This gives us an advantage over competitors which might invest after the crisis."

LICENCE

As a young man in the Tunisian commercial city of Sfax, Frikha initially planned to go into his father's textiles business. But he studied communications technology in France and founded his first company, telecommunications engineering venture Telnet, in Tunisia in 1994.

Economists hoped the 2011 revolutions around the Arab world would unleash a wave of fresh investment, by loosening the grip of entrenched business elites who used their connections with autocratic governments to stifle competition.

For the most part, this has not happened so far; societies have been in too much turmoil. But it does appear to have happened in the case of Syphax.

Frikha noted that he had obtained a licence to launch his airline just months after the overthrow of Ben Ali - a process which could have taken years under the old regime. Syphax, which describes itself as a "hybrid" airline with characteristics of both budget carriers and full-service airlines, competes with state-owned Tunisair, the much larger flag carrier.

Tunisair and Syphax have had a complex and sometimes rocky relationship, quarrelling publicly over the younger carrier's right to expand its route network and arrangements for Tunisair staff to provide services to Syphax.

The flag carrier is struggling to trim its bloated workforce, a task which has become more politically sensitive in Tunisia's post-revolution climate of union activism. As a young airline, Syphax does not face this challenge.

Political and economic turmoil over the past two years has affected Syphax, Frikha said - particularly waves of strikes in industries supplying the airline. But he said the instability had also helped Syphax, by allowing it to obtain financial incentives and assistance from the government more easily than it could have during normal economic times.

Frikha listed Telnet on the Tunis stock exchange in 2011, the first listing after the revolution. He listed Syphax in June this year, after offering 2.5 million shares worth a total of 25 million dinars ($15.3 million) - 45 percent of the firm's augmented capital - to the public and institutional investors.

Syphax's share price fell sharply in the initial months after listing, from 10.00 dinars to as low as 7.79, but it has since rebounded to 9.10 dinars. It has underperformed the overall Tunisian stock market, which dropped 1.8 percent during that period.

The airline posted an after-tax loss of 14.53 million dinars in 2012, according to its statements to the stock exchange. But its passenger traffic is growing rapidly, which suggests Syphax is heading towards profitability; it carried 113,291 people in the second quarter of this year compared to 15,599 in the year-ago period.

Frikha said he was aiming to carry 1 million passengers next year and 4 million annually after five years.

"I look forward to Syphax becoming a small Lufthansa or Emirates airline. I will increase the number of people coming to Tunisia and break into new markets such as the United States, Canada and China," he said.

AUSTERITY

Under pressure from its international lenders, the Tunisian government said this month that it was moving ahead with austerity measures including a 5 percent cut in public spending and a freeze on public sector wages in 2014.

Although it is not certain that the next cabinet, or the post-election government, can stick to this austerity, other plans for next year include the imposition of a 10 percent tax on exporting companies, which have been exempt from taxes. This marks a major shift from Ben Ali's heavily export-focused economic model.

Frikha said he supported the government's tax reforms because it was necessary to raise state revenues, but higher corporate taxes should be repealed once foreign investors started returning to Tunisia in large numbers.

He described the country's problems as mainly political, due to a struggle to create a stable democratic system rather than the result of any fundamental weaknesses in the economy of 11 million people, who are among the best-educated in the Arab world.

"We should be ready for Tunisia after the crisis, because we are able to become a model for success in the Arab Spring and resemble Turkey," Frikha added.
