The new aircraft order for A320 family replaces the aircrafts in the same family operating in TAM network, which comprises the commitment in maintaining a low average age for the aircraft fleet according to the fleet plan already annouced. The A320 and A350 XWB family aircrafts shall operate in the routes existing in the company's network. In respect to the 20 orders from A 320 (A319, A320 and A321) family, ten shall be delivered in 2014 and the remaining ten in 2015.

They got the slots and now it's official: TAM starts Rio de Janeiro - Frankfurt 5 weekly with A332 from August 10.
JJ8072 GIG 2148 – 1440+1 FRA 332 23567
JJ8073 FRA 2240 – 0609+1 GIG 332 13467
Expected to be upgraded to daily when additional A330s arrive next year.
Good to see it coming back. 2 years of unavailable flights on former Varig's flagship route (RG used to fly to FRA daily from GRU as well as GIG using B772 with 20(!) F seats) were more than enough.

Brazil gets tougher with flight delay rules to help travelers get food, hotels

BRASILIA -- Brazil Monday tightened rules on flight delays to make it quicker for stranded passengers to get free food, lodging, telephone and Internet access, as well as reimbursements from airlines, local media said. The National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) also established fines for airlines that fail to comply with the new rules, ranging from US$555
to US$1,800 for each case.

The new regulations mandate immediate fare reimbursement when flights are either cancelled or delayed more than four hours. Previous rules gave airlines up to 30 days to pay up.

Tam, Gol Linhas Surge as Brazil Air Travel Increases (Update1)

June 15, 2010, 4:35 PM EDT


(Updates prices in second paragraph.)

By Alexander Ragir



June 15 (Bloomberg) -- Tam SA and Gol Linhas Aereas Inteligentes SA jumped the most in at least six months after a report said air travel by Brazilian carriers grew 20 percent, easing concern higher competition will spur lower prices.

Tam, Brazil’s second-biggest airline after Gol, surged 8 percent to 26.90 reais, the biggest jump since December. Gol climbed 7.8 percent to 22.99 reais, its biggest gain since November.

“While there has been considerable speculation and media buzz regarding a potential domestic price war, our most recent conversations with management suggest a relatively healthy June thus far, with domestic yields actually trending higher versus May,” wrote Banco BTG Pactual analyst Rodrigo Goes in a note to clients today.

Brazilian airlines increased travel 20.4 percent in May from a year earlier, the National Agency of Civic Aviation said yesterday in Brasilia.

Tam sank 30 percent this year, while Gol dropped 12 percent on concern rising competition within Brazil from Azul Linhas Aereas Brasileiras, Webjet Linhas Aereas, Oceanair Linhas Aereas Ltda. will force carriers to lower prices to not lose market share.

In the domestic market, Tam held 40.88 percent in May, while Gol had a 40.18 percent market share, according to the Anac, as the agency is known. Azul Linhas had a market share of 5.93 percent, while Webjet had 6.26 percent and OceanAir held 3.17 percent.

Embraer to develop a One-Pilot Commercial airliner?


http://www.avionews.com/index.php?co...ante=index.php

02:34 pm - Thursday 17/June/2010

Embraer view about one-pilot commercial airplanes

San José dos Campos, Brazil - The Brazilian design turmoil is continuing



(WAPA) - During the event "ILA Berlin" 2010, we have left Embraer, the third world aircraft builder, with the opportunity of an alliance with Airbus, the industry controlled by the European giant EADS Group, and with the foreseen to engage, besides in its line of regional airplanes that distinguishes the brand, also to the development of aircraft in the medium range category.

The turmoil air for Brazilian industry continues and in these days the declarations by vice-president Luiz Sergio Chiessi, who affirms that the manufacturer is analyzing the possibility to develop airliner that can be conducted by an only pilot and to make operating within five year period 2020-2025. He has noticed that the heavier work that has to make in this direction is that to persuade the travellers, the regulatory authorities and unions that the idea is possible.

Now the Embraer is in an embryo phase of the idea; these declarations of its leadership are as a vision on the civil aviation for next years and as an operating project. But how they face the topic seems that believe really. With the technology at disposal and thanks to the predicted progresses for next years it's realistic to hypothize for some flights the presence of an only pilot on board, devolving a series of navigation tasks to the automatic systems. This would endure remarkable savings for sector and could represent a solution to the predicted lack of pilots once that the field will return to a grave growth, the manager of the Brazilian industry suggest.

GOL Remains Neutral

By: Zacks Investment Research Sunday, June 20, 2010 4:18 PM

We maintain our Neutral recommendation on Brazilian low-fare airliner GOL Linhas Aereas (GOL).

GOL Linhas remains better positioned to capitalize on the growth of discounted air travel in Brazil and the rest of Latin America, given its strong market share and efficient operations. The company has been delivering positive and increasing operating profit for the last seven consecutive quarters.

During the first quarter of fiscal 2010, net revenues were R$1,729.8 million (US$968.7 million), up from R$1,517.0 million (US$652.3 million) in the corresponding quarter of 2009.

The improvement in revenue is the result of the company's competitive advantages in relation to greater flight frequency between domestic airports, low-cost leadership, and strong indicators of on-time record, regularity, safety, and differentiated client service, as well as increased demand from the domestic and international markets.

GOL posted an operating income of R$191.4 million (US$107.2 million) and an operating margin of 11.1%, up 82.1% from R$105.1 million and a 6.9% margin in the first quarter of 2009.

We expect GOL to experience growth in the short-to-medium term, given its continued investment in fleet renovation and international agreements. GOL Linhas is in the final phase of its plan to replace its fleet of 737-300 and 767-300 aircraft with 737-800NGs and 737-700NGs for operations on short- and medium-haul routes. In 2010, the entire fleet will be renewed; with the total operating fleet expected to number 111.

The fleet modernization plan guarantees that GOL's fleet will maintain its status as one of the youngest and most modern in the world. At the end of 2012, 65% of the fleet will comprise 737-800 SFP aircrafts, maintaining the low average age of 6.9 years.

Recently, GOL signed a new code-share agreement with Delta Air Lines Inc. (DAL) and expanded its international distribution channels and initiated a couple of flights from Brasilia to the Caribbean and other international destinations. Based on adjustments in the company's international network, international revenue increased, which will continue in the coming months.

However, competitive pressure and the uncertain economic environment is a source of concern. 2009 was one of the toughest years for the airline industry. The only good news was the price of oil, which has come down from $150 per barrel in 2008. However, we do expect better prospects into 2010 together with gyrating fuel prices.

Actually you really do not need pilots altogether, UAVs have been flying for the last 20 years without onboard pilots.
I say it's more of a psychological/union issue then a safety issue.

Continental and TAM Airlines to Implement Codeshare Flights

PR Newswire
HOUSTON, June 24


HOUSTON, June 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Continental Airlines (NYSE: CAL) today announced codeshare cooperation with TAM Airlines (Bovespa: TAMM4 and NYSE: TAM) on routes within Brazil and between Brazil and the U.S. beginning July 1, 2010.

This cooperation builds on the reciprocal frequent flyer program agreement signed on April 6 between Continental Airlines and TAM and supports Continental's growth in the Brazilian market. Both airlines are members of Star Alliance, the first truly global airline alliance to offer worldwide reach, recognition and seamless service to the international traveler.

"Codesharing between Continental and TAM Airlines improves the link we established between the two airlines before TAM joined Star Alliance," said John Slater, Continental's staff vice president Latin America and the Caribbean. "We look forward to growing our relationship with TAM in the near future."

"We are expanding our international network through this new stage of our partnership with Continental. Through the agreement, we are able to offer more convenience and better services to our customers," stated TAM Airlines commercial and planning vice president, Paulo Castello Branco.

Codeshare Flights







Continental Airlines is the world's fifth largest airline. Continental, together with Continental Express and Continental Connection, has more than 2,700 daily departures throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia, serving 132 domestic and 137 international destinations. Continental is a member of Star Alliance, which overall offers more than 21,050 daily flights to 1,167 airports in 181 countries through its 27 member airlines. With more than 40,000 employees, Continental has hubs serving New York, Houston, Cleveland and Guam, and together with its regional partners, carries approximately 63 million passengers per year.

Continental consistently earns awards and critical acclaim for both its operation and its corporate culture. For nine consecutive years, FORTUNE magazine has ranked Continental as the top U.S. airline on its "World's Most Admired Companies" airline industry list. For more company information, go to continental.com.

TAM Airlines (www.tamairlines.com.br), a member of Star Alliance, leads the Brazilian domestic market since July 2003 and has ended the month of May with a 40.9% market share. The company flies to 43 destinations in Brazil. With the business agreements signed with regional companies, it goes to 87 different destinations in national territory. TAM's market share among Brazilian airlines that operate international flights was of 87.9% in May. International flights include direct flights to 18 destinations in the United States, Europe and South America: New York, Miami and Orlando (U.S.A.), Paris (France), London (England), Milan (Italy), Frankfurt (Germany), Madrid (Spain), Buenos Aires (Argentina), La Paz, Cochabamba and Santa Cruz de la Sierra (Bolivia), Santiago (Chile), Asuncion and Ciudad del Este (Paraguay), Montevideo (Uruguay), Caracas (Venezuela) and Lima (Peru). Furthermore, it has codeshare agreements that allow sharing seats in flights with international companies, thus allowing passengers to travel to another 78 destinations in the U.S.A., South America, Europe and Asia. The Star Alliance network, in turn, offers flights to 1,167 airports in 181 countries. TAM is a pioneer in launching a loyalty program airline in Brazil. TAM Fidelidade now has 6.9 million members and has already distributed 10.6 million airplane tickets through point redemption.

Boeing 777-200 - Qatar Airways Launches Daily Flights to Brazil and Argentina

Posted by Mohamed Tamer
Sunday, 27 June 2010 15:15



BRAZIL / ARGENTINA – Qatar Airways today celebrated yet another milestone in its short history with the launch of scheduled daily flights to Brazil and Argentina marking its foray into South America for the first time.

Brazil’s largest city Sao Paulo and the Argentinian capital Buenos Aires have joined the airline’s growing list of destinations, taking the Doha-based carrier’s global network up to 92 points served worldwide.

With the lands of samba and tango now in the airline’s network, it signals the latest step in Qatar Airways’ huge expansion drive with South America becoming the final piece in the airline’s global jigsaw that now covers six continents.

The two new routes complete a five-month expansion programme so far this year which has seen the airline introduce flights to Bengaluru (Bangalore), Copenhagen, Ankara, Tokyo and Barcelona.

Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker led a high profile delegation of dignitaries and international media from Asia and the Gulf region on the inaugural flight QR921 from Doha to Sao Paulo and onwards to Buenos Aires.

They included Brazil’s Ambassador to the State of Qatar, His Excellency Anuar Nahes and His Excellency Ruben Caro, Argentina’s Ambassador to Qatar.

Airport functions, featuring a cake-cutting ceremony and speeches, were held on arrival at both cities, attended by government, airport and business officials, together with local and international media.

Al Baker said today was an historic occasion for Qatar Airways that would further boost economic ties between Qatar and both Brazil and Argentina.

“Just 13 years ago, Qatar Airways embarked on an ambitious plan by launching an airline that would spread its wings far and wide and offer the highest levels of service and hospitality,” he said, speaking at arrival receptions at both airports.

“Today, I am proud to say that we have achieved a remarkable feat, stretching our award-winning Five Star service to South America by serving both Brazil and Argentina, which takes our international network up to 92 destinations across six continents. This is indeed a momentous occasion for Qatar Airways and all our staff.

“I would like to thank the airport authorities and government agencies in both countries for helping Qatar Airways make today’s launch a reality.

“Both Brazil and Argentina share close ties with Qatar and with our new routes, we will only reinforce and strengthen the relationship we already share, boosting trade, commerce and tourism.”

Added Al Baker: “The timing of our new routes could not have been better and we are confident that entering the relatively untapped South American market will be a great success.

“With a large Lebanese and Japanese community living in Brazil, Argentina and neighbouring South American countries, the route is a perfect match for our business model, which carries passengers from East to West and vice versa via our Doha hub.”

During his speech, Al Baker congratulated both the Brazilian and Argentinian soccer teams for their qualification into the next round of the World Cup currently taking place in South Africa.

Qatar Airways is the only Five Star ranked airline operating between the Middle East and South America, and was recently elevated to the top three airlines in the world in the prestigious Skytrax global rankings.

The new South American flights offer excellent connections to and from key cities worldwide, across the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific via the airline’s Doha hub. These include Tokyo, Shanghai, Singapore, Beijing, Melbourne, Nairobi, Beirut, Dubai and Muscat.

During a four-month period starting in October 2010, Qatar Airways will expand its international route network further with six new routes, operating scheduled flights from Doha to Phuket, Hanoi, Nice, Brussels, Bucharest And Budapest.
Qatar Airways operates the Boeing 777-200 Long Range aircraft in a two-class configuration of 259 seats – 42 in Economy and 216 in Business Class – to Brazil and Argentina, offering arguably the most spacious aircraft of any airline flying between the Middle East and South America.
In Business Class, passengers are able to enjoy unprecedented comfort and space with a seat pitch of up to 78 inches, and each seat converting into 180-degree fully flat beds. With a 2–2–2 seat configuration, Business Class passengers are assured of either a window or aisle seat.

In Economy Class, seat space is above the industry average with a pitch of up to 34 inches offering significant leg room. The 3–3–3 seat configuration is the most spacious of any airline flying to South America from the Middle East.

By 2013, Qatar Airways plans to serve 120 key business and leisure destinations worldwide with a modern fleet of 120 aircraft. Today, the airline’s fleet stands at 84 aircraft, flying to destinations across Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific and North and South America.
