Brazil's Gol Might Have The Cleanest Airline Garbage In The World
February 18, 2010 at 11:35 AM | by kjb |



Until a viable biofuel option really takes off it’s kind of difficult to bring a little green to air travel. However, Brazilian airline Gol is not letting this stop them. Even though their planes run on regular old jet fuel, they are looking to eliminate the waste from their, uh, waste.

The airline has set up special facilities at many of their bases, and they have a pretty good rate of successfully cleaning things up in an earth friendly way. Their maintenance centers follow some pretty strict environmental standards to ensure that all oil and other chemical garbage is treated prior to being sent elsewhere. When it comes to the inside of the planes, Gol is using some kind of special industrial towels to get things spiffy for passengers. They even wash the towels in some sort of fancy way to cut down on waste.

Sounds good to us, but we were most surprised to hear that airlines are still cleaning the inside of their planes—we certainly haven't seen any recently.

The airline is following environmental guidelines outlined by the Brazilian government, but it’s also nice to see that they’re taking a somewhat proactive approach when it comes to waste management. Last year the airline was able to clean up over 14 tons of gross stuff prior to disposal, and this year they are looking to bring more of their green skills in-house. This will save costs, allow for more flexibility, and will provide the opportunity to brag about how they love the earth more than other airlines. We can just see them striking out at Azul—they’re not green, they’re blue—or something a little more clever.

With entry into Star Alliance TAM will launch a new flight between Rio de Janeiro and Europe by summer, using A332s. Pretty sure the european destination will be Frankfurt as it's *A's most important hub, and the GIG-FRA route (ex-Varig's most profitable route) is currently unserved.

Trying to Create a Travel Culture in Northeastern Brazil Before Olympics

Written by Newsroom
Monday, 22 February 2010 17:51




Brazil's Ministry of Tourism has plans to expand the regional air grid and improve airports and the hotel network in Brazilian Northeast. With projects in the area of infrastructure, the country plans to provide better services to the tourists who should come to the country for the 2014 World Cup matches and for the 2016 Olympics.

Commenting on the matter, in a television interview on February 19, on radio program Bom Dia, Ministro, the minister of Tourism, Luiz Barretto, said that the Ministry of Defense has specific projects for regional aviation and has been discussing the matter with the nine governors of states of the Northeast.

Among the proposals under discussion, according to Barreto, is the reduction of the value added state tax (ICMS) for regional aviation. "This should assist the creation of regional aviation capable of moving the main centers. Ceará has been doing its homework, with the expansion of regional airports."

The entrance into a consumer market of 20 million people, in recent years, according to him, has boosted tourism in the country, so the ministry is working on establishing a "travel culture". Competition among airlines results in lower ticket prices and becomes "one less bottleneck to be faced".

Barretto mentions the case of Piauí, to be added to international nautical routes, with airports being inaugurated in Parnaíba (on the coastal region of the state) and in São Raimundo Nonato. The expansion of the port and construction of a marina in Luis Correia, also in the state, are other local priorities, according to him.

The ministry pointed out the need to work to attract the attention of around 1 million Argentine tourists who visit Brazil each year. "We hope they will also visit the Northeast, where they may find diversity that is non-existent in the South, which is currently the preferred route."

Wow, a lot of traffic increased..

I heard there are a lot more flights between Brasil and Argentina by Aerolineas Argentinas from 15 March. And some of them will start from AEP instead of EZE or both...
Some flights of GRU stay at EZE so that they can make a stop to fly to Auckland or Sydney...

Brazil's February Air Traffic Rises 43% On Year -Anac

SAO PAULO (Dow Jones)--Brazilian domestic air traffic rose dramatically, while air fares subsided at the start of 2010, reflecting greater competition in the segment, official data showed Thursday.

Domestic airline traffic rose 42.9% in February compared with the year before, reaching 5.27 billion revenue passenger kilometers, or RPKs, the country's National Civil Aviation Agency, or Anac, said.

Meanwhile, domestic load factors rose to 71.6% from 60.7% in February 2009.

Leading Brazilian carrier TAM SA (TAM, TAMM4.BR) registered a market share of 42.4% last month, down from 49.8% in the same period the year before.

Rival GOL Linhas Aereas Inteligentes SA (GOL, GOLL4.BR) saw its market share rise to 41.6% in February from 40.2% the year before, reflecting an expansion of its route map.

Increased demand reflects the acceleration of the Brazilian economy out of recession. As a result, demand for air travel has exploded.

The explosion in demand has also been induced by lower fares as smaller airlines like Azul, Webjet and OceanAir gain more traction.

According to ANAC data also released Thursday, passengers paid an average of 0.41 Brazilian reals ($0.23) per kilometer traveled in January, down from BRL0.53 in January 2009.

Embraer Q4 Profit Rises 31%; Guides 2010 Revenues Below View
3/19/2010 12:04 AM ET




(RTTNews) - Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Empresa Brasileira de Aeronáutica S.A. or Embraer (ERJ: News ) reported Thursday a 31% year-over-year increase in profit for the fourth quarter as the year-ago quarter was weighed down by significant interest and income tax expenses, despite a decline in quarterly sales. The company also provided revenue guidance for the full-year 2010, below analysts' expectations.

The Sao Jose dos Campos, Brazil-based manufacturer of commercial jets with up to 120 seats reported net income of US$146.4 million or US$0.8092 per ADS for the fourth quarter, higher than US$111.7 million or US$0.6153 per ADS in the year-ago quarter.

On average, six analysts polled by Thomson Reuters expected earnings of $0.53 per share for the fourth quarter. Analysts' estimates typically exclude special items.

Net sales for the quarter dropped to US$1.61 billion from US$1.82 billion in the same quarter last year, marginally topping four Wall Street analysts' consensus estimate of US$1.58 billion.

Commercial Aviation segment sales for the quarter dropped to $0.70 billion from $1.19 billion in the prior-year quarter, while sales from the Executive Aviation segment totaled $417.3 million, higher than $249.7 million in the same quarter of the prior year. Defense segment sales grew to $259.3 million from $176.4 million in the year-ago quarter, and sales from Aviation Services segment totaled $181.1 million, up from $169.0 million in the prior-year quarter.

Income from operations for the quarter plunged to US$65.8 million from US$274.6 million in the prior-year quarter.

Embraer ended the fourth quarter with cash and cash equivalents of US$1.59 billion, compared to US$1.82 million at end of the prior-year quarter.

Aircraft delivery for the quarter climbed to a record high of 91 aircrafts, compared to 59 aircrafts delivered in the year-ago quarter. Embraer's firm order backlog as on December 31, 2009, remained strong totaling US$ 16.6 billion.

For fiscal 2009, Embraer posted net income of US$248.5 million or US$1.3736 per ADS, lower than US$388.7 million or US$2.1415 per ADS in the year ago. Analysts expected the company to report earnings of $1.12 per share for fiscal 2009.

Net sales for the full year dropped to US$5.47 billion from US$6.34 billion in the previous year. The Street was looking for full-year 2009 revenues of $5.34 billion.

Looking ahead to fiscal 2010, the company projects full-year revenues of US$5.0 billion, with US$2.6 billion from the Commercial Aviation segment, US$1.1 billion from the Executive Aviation segment, US$650 million from the Defense segment, and US$650 million from Aeronautical Services and Other Businesses. The street is looking for full-year 2009 revenues of US$5.13 billion.

Embraer also expects to deliver a total of 227 aircraft in fiscal 2010, with 90 from the Commercial Aviation segment, and 137 from the Executive Aviation segment.

Embraer's American Depositary Shares traded on the NYSE, closed Thursday's regular trading session at US$23.45, down US$0.41 or 1.72% on a volume of 1.08 million shares, higher than the three-month average volume of 0.77 million shares.

Brazil Government Agency Sees 10% Growth In Air Traffic In 2010

SAO PAULO -(Dow Jones)- Brazilian air traffic will grow by another 10% in 2010, after a major expansion last year, straining some of the nation's airports, the director of the country's Civil Aviation Authority said at a news conference Friday.

"We could see another 10% growth this year, or even more, after 17% growth in 2009," said Solange Vieira, director of the agency, known as Anac.

Air traffic expanded in 2009, despite a brief recession, because of aggressive investments by carriers and low fares. Brazil's gross domestic product retreated 0.2% in 2009 but is expected to expand by at least 5% this year.

"Some airports could reach the limits of their capacity. We are conducting a study to see which airports are closest to capacity. We will then make preventive investments," Vieira said.

New black box search starts off Brazil

March 26, 2010

A new search was expected to begin on Thursday for the black boxes from Air France's worst aviation disaster - an Airbus crash off Brazil last June that killed all 228 people on board.

France's air accident investigation agency, the BEA, was to detail the search in a media conference in Brazil's northeastern city of Recife, presenting the teams taking part.

The new operation follows two intensive but unsuccessful sweeps of the Atlantic Ocean in the months following the accident that turned up some debris but no sign of the flight data and cockpit recorders.

The devices are key to understanding what caused the disaster, which remains largely unexplained.

Relatives of those killed mostly blame the accident on malfunctioning airspeed sensors, based on a series of automatic alerts received from the doomed aircraft.

The renewed search involves two ships, one American and the other Norwegian, packed with sophisticated equipment including sonars and underwater robots.

They are to plumb the depths of the ocean for at least four weeks, in a 2,000 square-kilometre zone narrowed by experts who studied water currents and temperatures in relation to debris recovered from the aircraft.

The crash of Air France flight AF447 occurred on June 1, as the plane was flying from Rio de Janeiro to Paris with passengers and crew of 32 nationalities, including 72 French citizens, 58 Brazilians and 26 Germans.

International arrivals to Brazil up 22.06% in February
Posted on: 30 Mar 2010 at 07:42 AM in Airline News • Tourism News



A total of 619,660 passengers arrived in Brazil on international flights, the highest level in February since 2005.

The number of passengers arriving on flights from abroad reached a record in February 2010. According to Infraero, Brazil’s National Airport Authority, a total of 619,660 people arrived in Brazil on international flights (scheduled and charter flights).This result is 22.06% higher than in the same month last year, when the total was 507,664.

“In addition to Embratur’s promotional work abroad, Brazil now has an image throughout the world that arouses great curiosity and makes people want to visit the country. We are working to ensure we can receive a growing number of tourists and meet visitors’ expectations of Brazil,” said the Tourism Minister, Luiz Barretto.

Scheduled flights were up 23% (588,915 arrivals in February 2010 against 478,883 in February 2009). Charter flights increased by 6.8% - with 30,745 people arriving in February this year, compared with 28,781 in the same month in 2009.

New record also in first two months of 2010
For Jeanine Pires, the president of Embratur, the Brazilian Tourist Institute, these results show good prospects for the coming year. “In the first two months of the year international arrivals were 16.5% higher than in the same period in 2009. Combined with the significant growth in inflows of dollars from foreign tourists, which increased by 18% in February, these numbers show that we have had an excellent summer and confirm the recovery in international tourism, which began at the end of last year,” she said.

In February there were 903 direct flights per week from foreign airports to Brazil. Latin America accounted for 51.83% of arrivals, followed by North America (22.70%), Europe (22.14%), Asia (1.66%) and Africa (1.66%).

Tam Sees Brazil 2010 Air-Travel Growth of Up to 18%
Last Updated: March 31, 2010 10:17 EDT

By Laura Price

March 31 (Bloomberg) -- Tam SA, Brazil’s biggest airline, forecast air-travel growth of 14 percent to 18 percent in its home market this year as the recovery in Latin America’s biggest economy spurs a rebound.

Demand rose 36 percent in the year’s first two months and the strong growth for Brazilian airlines will continue through 2010, the Sao Paulo-based company said in a regulatory filing today. Tam said its capacity will increase about 12 percent in the year, after a 6 percent gain in January and February.

Air travel in Brazil picked -based company said in a regulatory filing today. Tam said its capacity will increase about 12 percent in the year, after a 6 percent gain in January and February.

Air travel in Brazil picked . Brazil’s gross domestic product will grow 5.51 percent this year, based on the median estimate of about 100 economists in a central bank survey published March 29.

“The scenario for both Tam and Gol is positive,” Rosangela Ribeiro, an analyst at SLW Corretora in Sao Paulo, said in a telephone interview today. “Domestic demand should be very good. It’s not such an optimistic goal. 2009 wasn’t good, they had a fall in sales, fall in Ebitda, but there’s a good chance of recovery in 2010.”

Brazil’s air travel grew 18 percent in 2009, Tam said. That exceeded its forecast of 7 percent to 10 percent.

Tam posted fourth-quarter net income of 143.9 million reais ($80.4 million), according to Brazilian generally accepted accounting principles. The company a year earlier reported a net loss of 1.23 billion reais after fuel-hedging expenses rose and a currency drop boosted dollar-denominated costs.

Shares Gain

Tam rose 2.3 percent to 29.06 reais at 9:58 a.m. New York time today, while Gol rose less than 1 percent to 21.95 reais. Tam fell 26 percent and Gol slid 17 percent this year through yesterday, as Brazil’s benchmark Bovespa index gained 2 percent.

Under International Financial Reporting Standards, Tam’s fourth-quarter loss narrowed to 334.1 million reais from 1.24 billion reais a year earlier. The results under the international standards include a loss of 743 million reais for revaluing Tam’s aircraft.

Sales for the quarter under Brazilian accounting principles fell 13 percent to 2.54 billion reais, Tam said. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization slid 41 percent to 252.8 million reais.

Under the international standards, the quarterly sales fell 14 percent to 2.5 billion reais, the airline said.

Tam’s rate of seats filled was 68.2 percent in 2009, beating its forecast of 67 percent. The company expects an occupancy rate of 69 percent this year.

Gol forecasts demand growth of 12.5 percent to 18 percent this year and an occupancy rate of 70 percent, according to a Feb. 24 regulatory filing.

Nice. I wonder why there isn't a direct flight between Belo and EZE (Buenos Aires) as it says that 42% of its international flights are to this city... The existing flights to EZE are ''vía'' some city in Brazil

Embraer creates new division, eyes Boeing, Airbus

SAO PAULO, April 1 (Reuters) - Brazil's Embraer (EMBR3.SA) (ERJ.N) said on Thursday it had created a new division for commercial aviation, adding to speculation that it is considering building larger planes that would put it in direct competition with Boeing (BA.N) and Airbus (EAD.PA).

The division, called New Programs for Commercial Aviation, will be headed be Mauro Kern, whose previous job title was Executive Vice President for the Commercial Aviation Market. That division will now be run Paulo Cesar Silva, the company said in a statement.

The revamp of Embraer's organizational structure comes as speculation mounts that the Brazilian manufacturer may look to build larger planes than the small and mid-sized jets that helped make its name.

Embraer Chief Executive Frederico Curado has said the company will eventually have to decide whether to build bigger models or remain focused on the 50- to 120-seat niche, where its main rival is Canada's Bombardier (BBDb.TO).

But Curado has stressed that the company will make that leap only if it can come up with technological advances that justify such a large investment.

If it does, it would begin competing with U.S.-based Boeing and Europe's Airbus, the world's two biggest airplane makers. Curado's predecessor as CEO, Mauricio Botelho, was wary of moving into the segment of large airliners and liked to refer to Boeing and Airbus as the "big dogs."

Embraer's shares were down 0.86 percent at 10.43 reais in late afternoon trading in Sao Paulo, while the benchmark Bovespa index .BVSP was up 1.06 percent. (Reporting by Todd Benson; Editing by Gary Hill)

JAL to cut more international routes - report
São Paulo and Milan included



Sat Apr 3, 2010 8:28am IST

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan Airlines Corp, which has filed for bankruptcy, expects to cut 29 international routes in the business year ending next March, more than an initially planned 16 routes, a newspaper reported on Saturday.

The airline, being restructured with the help of a state-backed turnaround fund after filing for bankruptcy in January, also plans to cut around 30 domestic routes, the Yomiuri Shimbun daily reported.

The international cuts, which will include flights to Sao Paulo and Milan, will be part of rehabilitation plans to be submitted to court by the end of June, the Yomiuri said.

JAL has kept its partnership with AMR Corp's American Airlines in the Oneworld alliance, despite an attempt by Delta Air Lines to entice the carrier to its rival SkyTeam group.

TAM will start the GIG-FRA flights by August. Flights will be 5 weekly. One week later, they'll also start GIG-LHR with 3 weekly flights. Both routes will be operated by A330-200 and be upgraded to daily when additional A332 arrive in 2011. The requested slots for these flights already appear as cleared in FRA's waiting list
