Duh! There would be no way that emirates could fly to that many destinations in Australia with 777s or A330s. If they do they would have to do once weekly on many of those secondary cities with out running the market completely empty. Just imagine if EK had an alliance like they do with Qantas with on of the big American airlines.

Emirates
Any indication as to when EK might add OPO to their European network. EK have a habit of operating to secondary cities.

EXCLUSIVE: Etihad CEO “We Choose Not To Launch New Aircraft”

Quote:
Etihad Airways chooses not to be a launch partner for new commercial aircraft, preferring to wait until any potential problems have been resolved.

Speaking exclusively to Gulf Business for the magazine’s November aviation supplement, James Hogan, president and CEO of Etihad, revealed the Abu Dhabi carrier makes a conscious decision not to be a launch customer, a claim usually viewed as a proud moment.

“While we are an airline which prides itself on having a young, modern fleet, we are never the first to introduce a new aircraft type. This is our choice,” Hogan said.

“We prefer to wait until new aircraft types have entered service with other carriers, and any technical issues are resolved, before we introduce the same models.”

Coming soon to Miami: Qatar Airways

Already the second-busiest airport in the country for international passengers, Miami International Airport on Monday will announce the addition of a new far-flung destination: Qatar, the oil-rich Persian Gulf state.

Starting June 1, Qatar Airways will fly four times a week between Doha and Miami. The destination will be the airline’s sixth in the U.S.

“This is huge because Qatar Airways serves a part of the world, quite frankly, that we don’t have much access to,” said Miami-Dade Aviation Director Emilio T. González. The airline also offers connections to Eastern Europe, India, China, Japan and other destinations Miami has been eyeing.

South Florida hasn’t had direct service to the Middle East since late 2008, when El Al cut its Miami-to-Tel Aviv route. Qatar Airways plans to use a Boeing 777-200LR that can carry about 260 passengers; officials in Miami have said they hope the airline will increase frequency beyond four times a week eventually.

The announcement comes about six months after the airline starting flying to Chicago and five months after it announced the April 2014 start of service to Philadelphia. Later this month, Qatar Airways is set to become a full member of the Oneworld alliance, which means it will coordinate routes and allow passengers to earn and redeem frequent flyer points on partnering airlines.

“Miami was a clear choice for us,” Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker said in an email. “It’s a large international travel market, both inbound and outbound, and Qatar Airways’ membership in Oneworld gives people in the U.S. many more options for international travel.”

For Miami business and political leaders, the new air service reinforces the area’s strength as a base for doing business with emerging markets in Latin America.

“I think it shows our place as the gateway to the Americas and shows that we are rapidly becoming a global city of significant importance,” said Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez.

Barry Johnson, president and CEO of the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce, said the new route in combination with expanded service to Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean make Miami more attractive as a global business center.

“Increasing routes like these and hopefully others to Asia and other parts of the world will further solidify the position,” Johnson said.

In recent years, Miami has seen significant investment from Asian and European real estate developers, and convenient air access is considered crucial to opening up more business and tourism opportunities.

A study by the Miami-Dade Aviation Department showed that the new flight is expected to bring 536 jobs and more than $78 million in anticipated business revenue to the county.

González, the aviation director, said he believes the route has great potential for cargo business as well.

“We expect their planes to go back with full bellies,” he said. “This is a very exciting time for us because it’s a long time coming that we were able to get an airline with their caliber and their reach.”

The 16-year-old airline has more than 250 planes on order, worth more than $50 billion. Skytrax, the airline rating and review site, gives its long haul service five stars and named Qatar Airways the “world’s best airline” in 2011 and 2012.

While Qatar is small — home to an estimated two million residents, according to the CIA World Factbook — it is also wealthy, boasting the world’s highest per-capita income.

William Talbert III, president and CEO of the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau, said Miami is eager to welcome “high-end visitors” who might want to visit to start a business, take a luxury vacation or host upscale meetings. At a dinner earlier this year with representatives from the Miami-Dade business community and the airline, Talbert said much of the discussion focused on luxury travel and Miami’s assets.

He said the bureau and the airport are busy selling the destination to other airlines as well.

“This is not the only one — it’s the first, and what a sweet one,” he said.

González said he has trips planned in the near future to Japan, Israel, Turkey and South Africa with the goal of establishing more international routes.

“It’s a lot of cultivation, a lot of handshaking, a lot of business,” he said. “You establish the relationships first and they do the math.”

Press release in Miami. Another one world hub in the US getting connected to Doha! Way to go Qatar. It is only a matter of time before Emirates starts Miami.

Miami has always seemed odd to me. I just can't picture Asians, Africans and MEerns going there on vacation.

MIA isn't just a vacation destination, it's also an AA Latin-America fortress. QR which is joining oneworld in the end of the month can take advantage of additional feed to Latin American destinations, specifically in Central and Northern South America. These are also areas where, due to geographic positioning combined with demand, QR will not be able to reach on its own. QRs only flights to South America are to GRU and EZE, both of which are south, and are not attractive for people needing to reach hubs such as LIM, UIO, and BOG due to backtracking involved.

Qatar Airways in talks to buy stake India's SpiceJet, say reports

Friday, 18 October 2013

Qatar Airways is reportedly planning to acquire a minority stake in SpiceJet, an Indian low cost airline.

Both airlines have signed a non-disclosure agreement, Indian newspapers said, with preliminary talks being held on Qatar Airways acquiring a 24 percent stake in SpiceJet, according to Dubai-based weekly Arabian Business.

Qatar Airways might invest a total of $200m in SpiceJet, the source also claimed.

Shares in SpiceJet rose by 6.5 percent of hopes of the sale, according to Indian-based financial website Moneycontrol.com.

However, both airlines denied talks about any sale earlier this year, according to the website.

Akbar al-Baker, CEO of Qatar Airways, denied interest in January in investing in Indian airlines after a large spike in SpiceJet’s share price.

In September 2012, India’s government relaxed regulations on foreign investment in civil aviation, now allowing non-native carriers to own up to 49 percent of Indian airlines.

As a result of the new rules, the Indian government recently approved a $330m deal by Abu Dhabi-based carrier Etihad Airways to buy a stake in India’s Jet Airways.

Major milestone reached at Abu Dhabi’s Midfield Terminal project

Quote:


A construction milestone has been achieved at Abu Dhabi International Airport’s new terminal, which will become one of the world’s largest when it opens in 2017.

The first buttress for the steel arches to support the Midfield Terminal’s roof was laid on Sunday, a week ahead of schedule.

The sprawling site, which is littered with dozens of cranes and steel columns, has, until now, been hidden from view from drivers on the Abu Dhabi to Dubai road, but will start to become visible as work to build the roof begins.

“I think it’s fair to say that it’s been one of Abu Dhabi’s better kept secrets,” said Tony Douglas, the chief executive of Abu Dhabi Airports, during a tour of the site yesterday.

“But what we achieved [on Sunday] will take it from a pretty well kept secret to a spectator sport going forward.”

James Hogan was in Belgrade today on revealing of the first Air Serbia plane. First flight will be tomorrow to Abu Dhabi (T3). 10 planes in the next 6 months, 8 A319s, 2 A320s. Long haul plans going between late 2014 to early 2016. They might name this first one Novak Djokovic, a bit funny, but then again not too important.
