Etihad-Alitalia Partnership

Quote:
Network

A new three-hub strategy in Italy. Milan Malpensa will increase long-haul services, while Milan Linate will increase connectivity with partner airline hubs. Rome Fiumicino will grow long-haul flying and continue to expand short and medium haul flying to maintain relevance to the Italian market.
Schedules across the network will be optimised to allow better connectivity, as well as increased codesharing with existing and new partners.
New routes from Rome include Berlin, Dusseldorf, San Francisco, Mexico City, Santiago (Chile), Beijing and Seoul, with increased flights to New York, Chicago, Rio de Janeiro and Abu Dhabi.
Alitalia will also add 13 weekly flights from Milan Malpensa, with daily services to Abu Dhabi, four flights a week to Shanghai, and additional flights to Tokyo.
There will also be increased connectivity with Etihad Airways’ hub in Abu Dhabi, with daily services from Venice, Milan, Bologna and Catania, as well as additional flights from Rome
, all allowing onward connections to the Middle East, Africa, the Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia, China and Australia.
Venice will be the only Italian airport, in addition to Rome Fiumicino and Milan Malpensa, from which Alitalia will operate services to Abu Dhabi with long-haul aircraft.

Cooperation
While exploring further opportunities to deepen the relationships with Skyteam members and in particular Air France/KLM and Delta, there will be a major new partnership with airberlin & NIKI, as well as increased connectivity with Etihad Airways. There are also plans to work more deeply with Air Serbia and Etihad Regional. These partnerships will increase customer choice across many markets.

Fleet
Alitalia and Etihad Airways and its partners are exploring opportunities to improve jointly fleet efficiency. For example, Alitalia is in the process of relocating 14 Airbus A320s to airberlin, and looking into options with Etihad Airways to acquire additional wide-body aircraft for Alitalia. Alitalia will also have opportunities to receive aircraft from Etihad Airways’ existing fleet orderbook.

Guest Services
A new customer-first culture, with new product and service standards across the airline. A new Customer Excellence Training Academy will deliver skills to all customer-facing staff, while customers will experience traditional Italian hospitality, new food service options, new-look lounges in Rome, Milan Malpensa and Milan Linate.

Brand
Alitalia will launch a new brand and visual identity, covering aircraft, uniforms and all other customer touch-points. While the name will remain unchanged, the new branding will seek to capture and embody the essence of Italy.

I really hope the Rome-San Francisco flight will be made into a year-round service... currently, its Rome-Los Angeles service is a summer seasonal service.

Etihad raises stake in Virgin

Quote:
Etihad has tightened its hold on Virgin Australia by increasing its stake slightly to 24.2 per cent, not far shy of the Australian airline's largest shareholder, Air New Zealand.

A substantial shareholder notice released to the ASX on Friday afternoon showed that Etihad had raised its shareholdings by a further 1.3 per cent.

The Abu Dhabi-based airline last increased its stake in Virgin in November when it bought an extra 1.7 per cent in Australia's second-largest airline for about $26 million.

The latest move suggests that Etihad has gained approval from the Foreign Investment Review Board to creep by as much as 3 per cent because its increase in November had put it at its maximum holding.

Hi guys

There are speculations that Qatar Airways will add more flights Uganda and Rwanda. Currently, QR operates a daily service there.

Last year, they planned to fly 10 times a week instead of 7 times, but they didn't it.

If you have more infos about this, it will be cool.

Thx

Not only that,
The palm tree seem to be trimmed now, and the color effects have been removed from the logo, giving it a mute gold. Blends well with the tail dark color. Not drastic changes but a bit of tweeks to simplify.

Qatar buys 10% stake in British Airways owner

Qatar Airways has emerged as the owner of a 10% stake in International Airlines Group (IAG), the owner of British Airways (BA) and Iberia.

The Gulf airline is already a member of the Oneworld alliance.

Willie Walsh, IAG's chief executive, said he was delighted Qatar had become a "long-term supportive shareholder".

The stake, worth about £1.15bn, gives Qatar closer links with a group that has two major European hubs and strong transatlantic networks.

Mr Walsh said his company would explore what "opportunities exist to work more closely together and further IAG's ambitions as the leading global airline group".

Akbar Al Baker, chief executive of Qatar, said: "IAG represents an excellent opportunity to further develop our westwards strategy."

Earlier this month he criticised European airlines, saying they they "cannot keep up" with the competition posed by Gulf rivals.

Bigger stake
The two groups' route networks are largely complementary, with Qatar strong in southeast Asia, India and the Middle East, while Iberia flies to many destinations in South America.

Qatar said it could increase its holding, but would be limited by the 49% cap on non-EU ownership of European airlines.

Neither group said whether IAG had been aware of Qatar's stake-building and did not say who the shares had been bought from, or when.

Qatar has more than 130 aircraft and a further 340 on order. It is competing with other Gulf airlines including Emirates, based in Dubai, and Abu Dhabi's Etihad.

The Doha-based carrier had 22m passengers in the 2013-14 financial year, compared with 44.5m for its larger rival Emirates. IAG carried just over 77m passengers in 2014.

Other moves
Qatar's move comes as IAG attempts to complete a takeover of Aer Lingus for about £1.3bn.

The company has said it planned to run the Irish airline as a separate business with its own brand, management and operations.

IAG was formed when BA and Iberia merged in 2011. It has about 430 aircraft and 60,000 employees.

Shares in IAG closed down 3.5% at 544.5p on Friday, making it the biggest faller on the FTSE 100.

The stock has risen by more than a third in the past 12 months and the company is valued at £11.4bn.

Etihad Airways reports strong performance in 2014

Quote:
Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, carried a record number of passengers and cargo in 2014, marking its strongest operational performance to date.

Almost 14.8 million passengers flew with Etihad Airways last year, a significant increase of 23 per cent over 2013 levels. The growth in passenger demand continued to outstrip the airline’s capacity increase, highlighting the strength of its long-term growth strategy.

In total, Etihad Airways carried more than 74 per cent of the 19.9 million passengers who travelled through Abu Dhabi International Airport in 2014. With the addition of the airline’s equity partners that operate flights into the UAE capital, the combined total rises to a significant 82 per cent of passenger traffic at Abu Dhabi International Airport.
