Emirates quarter billion dollar advertising account up for grabs

Emirates Airlines has put up its $260 million advertising accounts up for tender in a significant shift in its communications strategy.

Campaign Middle East reports that Publicis, Omnicom, WPP and Interpublic, plus Chime Communications received the initial invitation, with the pitch process expected to commence at the end of July.

While Maurice Flanagan, executive vice chairman Emirates Airline and Group, said it was too early to talk about budgets, the announcement that one of the biggest prizes in the advertising world is up for grabs will send the select agencies invited to tender scrambling.

The winning agency will take responsibility for advertising across more than 80 global markets. Emirates currently uses various agencies around the world on a market-by-market basis. That will be a significant prize in an industry suffering from declining business opportunities and dwindling margins.

Flanagan said that the size and complexity of its business made its present ad hoc system unviable. The business has grown in size and complexity, and we have now reached a stage where we are looking to further develop the Emirates brand and brand reach to take us forward through the next five to 10 years. We are still in the very initial stages of evaluation." Flanagan said it was too early to go into details of whether it intended to replace existing agency structures, or to speak of budgets. "For existing agency partners, it is business as usual although no doubt some of them will be roped in by their holding groups to contribute to the pitch.

Emirates May Slow 777, A380 Deliveries From Late '10

LE BOURGET, France (Dow Jones)--Emirates Airline, the Middle East's largest airline, is looking at postponing delivery of up to 10 Boeing (B) 777 and Airbus A380 aircraft from the end of next year, but doesn't plan any cancellations, the carrier's president said Wednesday.

"We're looking at slowing things from late 2010, early 2011," Tim Clark told Dow Jones Newswires on the sidelines of the Paris Air Show. "In the big picture, this is no big deal. If we were talking about 30 aircraft you'd know about it."

Clark said Emirates is looking at pushing back eight to 10 aircraft and it in still in talks with manufacturers about the details.

By the end of next year, Emirates will have 146 aircraft in its fleet, including 15 Airbus superjumbos, Clark said.

"A slowdown will help manufacturers catch up. They have a huge backlog," he said, adding that Emirates, which has a $52 billion order book, doesn't plan to cancel any of its orders.

However, Clark said he wasn't too impressed with Boeing Co.'s (B) decision to put a larger wing on its wide-bodied jet.

"It doesn't make sense just to change the wing," he said. "You might as well do the fuselage as well."

Boeing Monday said it may build a new wing for the 777 to improve fuel efficiency and compete more effectively with the Airbus' A350.

Emirates continues to follow independent path

Friday June 19, 2009 While consolidation and alliance membership present a viable option for many airlines trying to negotiate the industry downturn, Emirates continues to prefer its independence, President Tim Clark emphasized to ATWOnline.

Speaking at the recent IATA annual general meeting in Kuala Lumpur, Clark said that neither entry into an alliance nor a merger with Etihad Airways, about which there has been considerable press speculation, is in the cards.

"For some people, an alliance may be a nice thing to do," he said, adding that many airlines that are in alliances are suffering significant financial difficulty. "Is an alliance the answer? The answer is 'no'. If your model is strong enough and your business is well run, and you can sustain through the tough times and are able to grow your business, stay with it." He said EK studied carriers from small countries with robust economies, like Swissair and Singapore Airlines, when it was established.

Regarding reports of EK's interest in Abu Dhabi-based Etihad, Clark said that "there is no move to merge. . .at the moment," adding, "but in the end, we are just managers. It is up to the [the rulers of the emirates] to determine what will happen in the future. At the moment, we continue to do what we do."

He said he sees EK operating around 163 aircraft in three years, "and we have to consider the 58 aircraft we have to retire, including the A330-200, A340-300 and 777-200/-300 classics." In the short term, conditions will continue to be rough for the industry, he said. "You may see a big bang in the next year. There will be many players who won't survive."

UAE's Etihad Airways Orders $7 Bln Worth Of Engines

LE BOURGET, France (Dow Jones)--Etihad Airways, the United Arab Emirates' flagship carrier, Tuesday said it ordered $7 billion worth of engines from GE Aviation, Rolls-Royce Group PLC (RYCEY), Engine Alliance and International Aero Engines for 100 Boeing (BA) and Airbus aircraft ordered at last year's Farnborough International Air Show.

The government-owned carrier ordered 78 GE Aviation Genex Engines to power 35 new Boeing 787 aircraft, 45 Engine Alliance GP7200 engines for 10 Airbus A380 aircraft and 44 IEA V2500 engines for 20 A320 planes.

Engine Alliance is a joint venture between General Electric Co. (GE) and United Technologies Corp. (UTX) unit Pratt & Whitney.

The firm order for 239 engines, which includes 19 spares, could rise to $14 billion if all options and purchase rights for an additional 100 aircraft are exercised.

I think the rumor was Etihad taking over Emirates not the other way round.

EU commends Emirates website for commitment to transparency

By

Shweta Jain on Tuesday, June 23, 2009

After nearly two months of being accused by the European Commission of misleading passengers over website ticket prices, Emirates airlines has received a formal apology from the European Union (EU).

The airline, which demanded a public apology from the EU in end-May, said yesterday that EU has confirmed that Emirates airline's websites are fully compliant with all the requirements laid down in EU consumer legislation.

European Commissioner for Consumer Affairs, Meglena Kuneva, said in a statement to Emirates: "I am delighted to confirm that contrary to some earlier reported indications, Emirates airline is fully in compliance with all the requirements laid down in EU consumer legislation that were monitored in the recent 'health check' in relation to air ticket selling websites and, therefore, belongs to those companies that can serve as an example to be followed by other [such companies]."

"The European Commission's Director-General for 'Health and Consumers' (DG SANCO), has further commended the airline for its commitment to consumer transparency," Emirates said in an official statement yesterday.

Emirates, with 93 websites in 70 countries in 13 languages, was one of nine airlines named by the EU earlier in May for failing to address concerns about misleading customers on their websites.

Others on the EU list included Northwest and Aeroflot, while Air France-KLM and British Airways narrowly avoided inclusion by contacting the authorities in Brussels before the announcement was made.

The airline's request for apology from EU came shortly after it launched a new "best price" promotion on its website guaranteeing that no better fares for the same Emirates flights would be found anywhere else on the internet.

Richard Vaughan, Emirates' Divisional Senior Vice-President, Commercial Operations Worldwide, said in a statement: "Although we were disappointed with how the original investigations were conducted, we are pleased that this issue is now resolved, and that our customers can be absolutely satisfied that Emirates' websites not only fully comply with EU regulations, but also demonstrate leadership in terms of transparency and inclusive pricing."

He added that Emirates' commercial operations are guided by "fair business practices and transparency for our customers".

"All Emirates airlines' fares include taxes and surcharges and no service fees apply when bookings are made and paid for online," said Vaughan.

The European Commission, meanwhile, had recently said it wants all companies involved to put their websites straight, or at least commit to doing so, by the end of June 2009, after which remedial measures could be taken by the European group.

Airbus confirms Etihad cancels damaged A340 order
Published: 2009/07/13

PARIS: Airbus has confirmed that Abu Dhabi carrier Etihad Airways had cancelled an order for a A340-600 aircraft that was damaged during testing but said the move did not represent a commercial snub.

Reuters reported on Wednesday that Etihad had cancelled the order for the plane, worth US$250 million at list prices, 19 months after it was written off during a botched engine test.

“This represents an aircraft which was scrapped before it could be delivered to the customer in November 2007, and does not represent a customer cancellation,” an Airbus spokesman said in an emailed statement clarifying June order data.

Check out the video on the net. It's so funny. They basically ran the plane into a wall.

Dubai Surpasses Hong Kong in Passenger Traffic

Dubai International airport left behind Hong Kong International Airport in terms of passenger numbers for the first time last month, according to the latest report by Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation, or Capa.

"The global financial crisis has accelerated Dubai's ascent, as key financial hubs, such as Hong Kong, fall back sharply, while the swine flu outbreak is also affecting demand in Asia," the Capa report stated.

It added: "Dubai International, home of the aggressive, fast-growing Emirates airline, continues its relentless climb up the ranking of the world's busiest international airports. Last year it was Singapore. Earlier this year it was Bangkok. Now it's Hong Kong's turn."

The latest passenger statistics by Capa revealed that Dubai handled 3.36 million passengers in June 2009, about 55,000 more than Hong Kong. Whereas, Singapore handled about 3.1 million passengers for the month, overtaking Bangkok, which handled 2.8 million as Thai Airways "haemorrhages cash".

In contrast, for the first six months of the year, Hong Kong was still the largest of the group under review, as per the Capa estimates, handling 22.4 million passengers, while Dubai handled 19.4 million passengers, ahead of Bangkok's 18.9 million and Singapore's 17.3 million passengers.

"While the Asia-Pacific airports continue to shrink, as home carriers scale back capacity to deal with plummeting passenger numbers, Dubai continues to go from strength to strength, with just one month of falling passenger traffic this year and double-digit growth in June 2009," Capa said in the report, adding that the Middle East aviation market (and the new generation sixth freedom models employed by the region's major airlines) has proved highly resilient to the downturn.

Sure enough, Dubai's passenger traffic has gone up by five per cent over the past six months and the airport recorded a notable 10.3 per cent increase in June 2009, recording a year-on-year double-digit growth on the back of strong demand during the peak summer period.

The three terminals at Dubai International handled a total of 3,361,413 passengers in June 2009 up sharply from 3,048,220 in the same period last year, Dubai Airports said last week.

The outlook for the rest of the summer period, through to the end of September and beyond, "remains strong", according to Chief Executive of Dubai Airports Paul Griffith's recent statement.

He added: "The fact that Dubai International Airport is recording double-digit passenger growth during the deepest global recession in decades bodes well for the future.

"When the current economic situation improves, Dubai will be in good shape, ready to lead the global recovery in air travel."

This poses a clear contrast with the significant falls in passenger traffic at the other hub airports across the world, with Bangkok down the most at 10.7 per cent (-7.9 per cent in June 2009 alone), in the first half of this year, followed by Hong Kong, which dropped by 8.4 per cent (-18.9 per cent in June), and Singapore down 7.6 per cent, Capa said. "The unrest in Thailand over late 2008 and early 2009 has contributed heavily to the half-year downturn in Bangkok," the report pointed out.

If the first-half trends continue through the second half of 2009, then Dubai is likely to handle about 39.3 million passengers for the full year, not too far short of Hong Kong, Capa said, further clarifying that this is "not a forecast". It added that a more buoyant Chinese economy could be Hong Kong's saviour.

Meanwhile, according to Airports Council International (ACI), Dubai International was rated as the sixth largest airport worldwide in terms of international passengers in 2008, and has consistently been the fastest growing of the top 20 international airports over the past five years.

"If Dubai's trajectory continues, it could climb ahead of Hong Kong, Frankfurt and Amsterdam in international passenger throughput over the next few years, becoming the largest international airport outside Europe. As it stands at the moment, only Hong Kong, Amsterdam Schiphol, Paris Charles de Gaulle and London Heathrow are larger," the report stated.

Also, according to ACI statistics, the first five months of this year saw global passenger traffic declining by eight per cent with international traffic falling by eight per cent and domestic traffic dropping by seven per cent.

Emirates becomes world's largest Boeing 777 operator



Dubai: Emirates has become the worlds largest airline operator of Boeing 777 aircraft with the arrival of its 78th Boeing 777 on Thursday.

Emirates has another 28 Boeing 777s pending delivery, worth over US$ 7 billion at list prices, and it is also the only airline to operate every model in the Boeing 777 family: -200s, -200ERs, -200LRs, -300s, -300ERs and freighters. The newest addition to the Emirates fleet is a Boeing 777-300ER configured for long distance journeys.


Tim Clark, President Emirates Airline said: The 777s form the backbone of our fleet, and we have configured these aircraft to give us maximum flexibility in terms of route deployment. Emirates 777s today fly to six continents from our Dubai hub, operating routes within a two-hour distance to long-range journeys of 16 hours non-stop."

"With suppliers around the world contributing to and benefitting from 777 production, Emirates' investment toward building the world's largest Boeing 777 fleet has played a role in maintaining and strengthening the global aviation manufacturing industry", said Marty Bentrott, Boeing Commercial Airplanes' Vice President of Sales for the Middle East, Central and South Asia.

Emirates recently completed an upgrading programme for its existing 777 fleet and now all of its 777 aircraft boast its award-winning ice (information, communication, entertainment) system, which offers passengers in all cabin classes an unrivalled choice of up to 1,200 channels of the latest movies, TV programming, music and games on demand.

Emirates received its first 777, a Boeing 777-200, in 1996. Its current 777 fleet comprises: three -200s, six -200ERs, 10 -200LRs, 12 -300s, 45 -300ERs, and two 777 freighters.

In total, Emirates operates an all-wide body fleet of 137 Boeing and Airbus aircraft to 99 cities in 60 countries on six continents.
