Serbia and Etihad in Jat takeover talks
Minority Jat share package for Etihad


The Serbian government will begin talks with the national carrier of the United Arab Emirates, Etihad Airways, at the end of March regarding the takeover of Jat Airways. The move comes after the UAE announced multi million euro investments in Serbia including the construction of a large cargo centre at Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport. The government has offered Etihad a minority stake in the Serbian airline but is willing for the Emirati carrier to name its own management for Jat (similar to the arrangement B&H Airlines had with Turkish Airlines). As EX-YU Aviation News learns, last week Etihad requested documentation from Jat, asking it to forward all of its international agreements and contracts.

The Serbian Minister for the Economy, Mladjan DInkić, as well as the Deputy Minister in charge of aviation, Milutin Popović, will travel to Abu Dhabi in late March to discuss the potential takeover of Jat and the sale of Jat Tehnika to the Mubadala Investment Company. Etihad is interested in incorporating Jat into its network. It would also take part of Jat’s pilots and base them in Abu Dhabi, according to government sources. Etihad Airways already has minority shares in Air Berlin, Air Seychelles, Aer Lingus and Virgin Australia. Last year, EX-YU Aviation News reported on the potential interest Etihad Airways has in the EX-YU region.

Relations between the United Arab Emirates and Serbia have been going from strength to strength over the past few months, with a dozen visits from Serbian and Emirati officials to each country in the past few weeks. Only last week, the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, holidayed on the mountain resort of Kopaonik in Southern Serbia. Abu Dhabi is believed to be planning investments in Serbia in the field of agriculture, infrastructure and air transportation.

Meanwhile, a final decision on Jat’s future fleet is expected to be announced today. It is believed the task group in charge of restructuring the Serbian carrier is leaning towards Boeing but has been under great pressure from the Serbian government to choose Airbus instead, due to the country’s aspirations to join the European Union.

I find that interesting because EK has been sending 77Ws with high-capacity Y seats to certain destinations all the time while, as you said, the 772s with 2-classes, are sent to low-yielding destinations. I haven't seen EK operating a 772 in 2-class configuration to MNL… perhaps it is used for flights to India, Pakistan, the Middle East, and parts of Europe. Don't tell me wrong, but the 772s are capable of flying further from DXB.

Jat Airways to become part of Etihad’s family

Jat Airways and Etihad Airways have agreed to a sign memorandum of understanding in Belgrade in April, the first step in forming a strategic partnership agreement between the two airlines. The deal will see the Serbian carrier launch flights to Abu Dhabi and open the way for Etihad to be granted a 49% stake in the airline. Following talks in Abu Dhabi yesterday, the two sides agreed for the strategic partnership to be initiated from mid April. “We want Jat to become a profitable company and the pride of Serbia. I am certain that Etihad is the ideal partner for our national carrier”, the country’s Minister for Finance and Economy, Mladjan Dinkić, said following the talks. He added that Etihad’s management will begin a thorough analysis of Jat’s business model next week.

The strategic partnership would see Etihad modernise Jat’s fleet in return for a 49% stake in the carrier. Furthermore, Etihad has expressed its willingness to help Jat with the financial lease of four Airbus jets which are to enter the airline’s fleet this June. Initial plans would see Jat launch daily flights to Abu Dhabi once the Airbus aircraft arrive. In addition, the airline would cooperate with Air Berlin on services to Chicago and a further three destinations in the United States. Etihad owns a 29% stake in Air Berlin. The German airline and Jat already have a Special Prorate Agreement.

Jat Airways operated flights to Abu Dhabi just a few years ago where, in cooperation with Etihad, passengers continued onwards to Australia. Etihad Airways is the Gulf’s third largest carrier behind Emirates and Qatar Airways. Besides Air Berlin, it has ownership stakes in Air Seychelles (which under its guidance has returned to profitability), as well as Virgin Australia and Aer Lingus.

Etihad launching Belgrade flights
Soon in Belgrade


The national carrier of the United Arab Emirates, Etihad Airways, will launch services from Abu Dhabi to Belgrade. Flights are to be inaugurated as soon as possible, within the next two months, no later than June. Jat Airways will codeshare on the service. As EX-YU Aviation News learns, the two airlines worked throughout the weekend, signing the codeshare agreement on Saturday. During this week the two will finalise their codesharing arrangements on other flights. Etihad will codeshare on several Jat Airways flights beyond Belgrade, while in return the Serbian carrier will place its “JU” code on several Etihad flights out of Abu Dhabi.

The two airlines are speeding up cooperation ahead of a visit by Etihad Airways CEO James Hogan to Belgrade next Monday, April 15. Mr. Hogan will sign a memorandum of understanding for a strategic partnership agreement with Jat. The national carrier of the United Arab Emirates has been offered a 49% stake in Jat over the next five years with the possibility to extend its control over the airline for a further five years, until 2023. Etihad’s takeover of Jat would be carried out in a similar fashion to its takeover of Air Seychelles. Etihad will be required to renew Jat’s aging fleet.

Next week Etihad and Jat will trial the Abu Dhabi - Belgrade service in global reservation systems. Etihad’s arrival into Belgrade will further shake up the increasingly competitive market between Serbia and the Middle East which primarily aims to capture transfer passengers. Etihad will compete against Qatar Airways which maintains flights from Doha to Belgrade via Ankara and the low cost Flydubai which operates services to the Serbian capital out of Dubai. Hardest hit by all the additional competition is Turkish Airlines which carries more transit than point to point passengers from Belgrade via its Istanbul hub. Yesterday, Etihad Airways reported its best ever first quarter passenger and revenue results since it launched operations ten years ago. The airline carried a record 2.8 million passengers in the first three months of the year. Revenue from codeshare and equity partners jumped by 34%.

Sir Maurice Flanagan, Executive Vice Chairman of Emirates Airline, retires

Quote:
Francis Matthew, Editor at Large

7 April 2013

Sir Maurice Flanagan, Executive Vice Chairman of Emirates Airline, retired on Sunday having been with the airline ever since it started, and received a touching tribute from Shaikh Ahmad Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, President of Dubai Civil Aviation and Chairman and Chief Executive of Emirates Airline and Group.
“I salute you as a friend and colleague. On behalf of His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, we thank you for the huge contribution you have made,” said Shaikh Ahmad.
“On this sad occasion Sir Maurice retires from the company, but he will remain part of the Emirates family, and Dubai will always be his home”.
Shaikh Ahmad told the assembled audience of friends and senior Emirates staff that he had shared an office with Sir Maurice for nine months when they started Emirates Airline in 1985, and added in a warm and personal tribute that “I learnt a lot from Sir Maurice. Indeed, when you see some good in me, you see what Maurice taught me. My bad habits are my own.”
Sir Maurice replied in Arabic, thanking Shaikh Ahmad for his leadership and kindness through the years. He then switched to English to tell the gathering the astonishing story of how Emirates Airline started.

Emirates is entering a new market.
Quote:
Emirates set to launch first trans-Atlantic flight from Europe

Dubai-based Emirates Airline said it has received approval from the Italian Civil Aviation Authority to launch direct flights between Milan and New York.
Set to begin on October 1, the new service will be the carrier's first direct service between North America and Europe.

One of the flights from Dubai to Milan will be extended to New York.


I wonder if this is the start of more of this kind of flights, they could continue by extending more services from other cities where they sponsor football clubs.

I think another reason for the Milan-New York flight would be Alitalia's reduction of flights from Milan/Malpensa from being an international hub, in which EK found an opportunity years later and will now start a Transatlantic flight. I find it a great aviation development since it will bring EK's legendary service even further to the already competitive Transatlantic market.

I understand, but does that provide a serious challenge for European carriers to step up their services and catch up to EK?

It does, but there is a big BUT - they don't play a chess game. In other words, Emirates has a lot of benefits such as very flexible labour law (or minimum of it), strong financial support and etc.

Of course, for consumers it's a very nice move. But on the other side we have Alitalia and it's workers.

That's also true, moreover (for as I see it) this flight could be a wake up call to american airlines that could offer more destinations from Milan (for example: Chicago, Washington, Philadelphia, Dallas, Houston, etc.).

EK has been very smart to put the flight in the afternoon, a time slot is very much in demand here in Milan for New York (especially for the bussines man), moreover, on the route Emirates will offer a high quality service: First Class, Lounge with direct boarding (I refer at the EK Lounge , open from January at the new satellite of MXP), limousine service and the possibility of connecting with other Italian and American cities, thanks to the alliance with Easyjet and Jet Blue
In addition, I would not be surprised if EK will do the same thing that made Cathay Pacific a few months ago: a partnership with Italo (the high-speed train) to give the possibility to the cities of Bologna and Florence to take advantage of the flight from Milan
