  • Read more 13APR2014: Emirates to suspend Milan - New York following court ruling?
    Emirates (EK, Dubai Int'l) could be forced to suspend its Milan Malpensa to New York JFK flights after an Italian court agreed with Assaereo, an association that represents Alitalia (AZ, Rome Fiumicino) and other Italian airlines, that the route violated Italy's bilateral air-service agreement with the United Arab Emirates.

    In its judgement, a Rome administrative court ruled that the Italian civil aviation authority (Ente Nazionale per l'Aviazione Civile - ENAC) had erred in giving Emirates the right to use Milan as a stopover. Such traffic rights, it said, could not be granted to a non-EU operator or a carrier from a country which is neither the port of departure nor destination, which in this case is Italy and the United States.

    Delta Air Lines (DL, Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson) welcomed the ruling claiming Emirates' route provides "no additional benefit for travellers, and could significantly harm U.S. and Italian airline employees by adding unneeded capacity on an already-competitive market."

    Emirates, which started the route in October last year, is considering lodging an "urgent appeal" with Italy's Supreme Administrative Court.

    It is currently uncertain as to whether or not the carrier will have to terminate the flights.

    Spirit Airlines (NK, Fort Lauderdale Int'l) has reportedly reached an agreement with Miami-Dade County officials over the establishment of a domestic and regional hub at Miami Int'l. According to CBS News, following year-long negotiations, the only outstanding matter is the finalization of paperwork which could lead to flights launching as early as autumn of this year.

    Currently, Miami Int'l counts American Airlines (AA, Dallas/Fort Worth) as its dominant carrier followed by Delta Air Lines (DL, Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson) while Spirit's main base is at Fort Lauderdale Int'l close by.
  • Read more 02APR2014: EC to investigate Etihad, Delta stakes in European carriers
    Etihad Airways (EY, Abu Dhabi Int'l) and its stakes in several European airlines including Air Berlin (AB, Berlin Tegel), Aer Lingus (EI, Dublin Int'l), Darwin Airline (F7, Lugano), and Air Serbia (JU, Belgrade) have come under the European Commission's scrutiny following the Emirati carrier's recent shopping spree. Delta Air Lines (DL, Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson) and its 49% shareholding in Virgin Atlantic (VS, London Heathrow) will also be investigated.

    The bureaucracy said its commissioners doubt Etihad's and Delta's investments are in line with European Union laws regarding ownership and effective control. Swiss regulator, the Federal Office of Civil Aviation (FOCA), said it would launch its own investigation into Etihad's stake in Darwin Airline.

    European law requires an airline pass two separate tests of ownership and control in order for it to retain its "European" designation and associated privileges.

    “We are tightening the screw, if you like,” DG-Mobility and Transport Matthias Ruete told AirTransportWorld. “We have clear rules on ownership and control of EU airlines and they must be adhered to. And while the ownership issue is straightforward, the control issue is a difficult one because what that actually means is open to interpretation. There have been some cases over the last few years where we have had to warn states that they were moving into a realm of activity not possible under EU law.”

    The European Commission has also warned Italy that any restructuring of Alitalia (AZ, Rome Fiumicino) in the wake of a possible deal with Etihad would be subject to the same laws and regulations.
  • Read more 01APR2014: US DoT rejects Air Tahiti Nui & Co's joint venture proposal
    Air Tahiti Nui (TN, Papeete) along with Delta Air Lines (DL, Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson), KLM Royal Dutch Airlines (KL, Amsterdam) and Alitalia (AZ, Rome Fiumicino) have had their application seeking a five-way antitrust immunity for a new alliance in the Europe-French Polynesia market rejected by the US Department of Transportation.

    The airlines had applied to both create a joint venture on one trunk route (Los Angeles Int'l to Paris CDG) for a series of coordination agreements and a codesharing agreement that would have given Air Tahiti Nui access to certain points on KLM partner's Air France (AF, Paris CDG) network beyond Paris.

    "In addition, the two carriers propose to expand codesharing on select flights between Los Angeles and Paris and Air Tahiti Nui intends to codeshare on select Air France flights beyond Paris. The AF-TN Joint Venture entails close commercial cooperation among the ATI Applicants in marketing, promotion, distribution, procurement, information systems, and accounting data. It includes joint pricing and revenue sharing on the Joint Venture Route and the coordination of seating allocation, revenue management, and settlement of itineraries between Papeete and Europe for passengers travelling over the Joint Venture Route and connecting on certain Air France flights beyond Paris," the ruling noted.

    However, in its ruling, the US DoT said the applicants had not demonstrated that their proposed alliance would provide sufficient public benefits to warrant the extraordinary grant of antitrust immunity.

    It in fact said it was concerned the proposed joint venture would adversely impact the nature of the routes involved as it could affect economic incentives for the carriers leading to reduced competition. The DoT went on to argue that since the applicants are only looking at partnering on existing Papeete to Paris CDG and Los Angeles Int'l to Paris CDG segments, it would not grant them exemption given that previous grants have helped spur new routes or significantly expand consumer choice. In addition, as Air France and Air Tahiti Nui already coordinate through their existing codeshares, the DoT said it would be unlikely that granting immunity would provide much additional public benefit.
