  • Read more 07APR2014: LAN Colombia retires the B737-700 from its fleet
    LAN Colombia (4C, Bogotá) has completed the retirement of the B737-700 from its fleet with the recent return of EI-EEB (msn 29081), HK-4627 (msn 29078) and HK-4660 (msn 34296) to their lessor. The LAN Airlines (LA, Santiago de Chile Int'l) subsidiary continues to operate six A320-200s and six Dash 8-200s.

    As previously reported by ch-aviation, Europe Airpost (5O, Paris CDG) is due to take delivery of two of the jets - EI-EEB and EI-EEV (msn 29080) - ahead of its first transatlantic services this summer.
  • Read more 01APR2014: US Airways, TAM Linhas Aéreas leave Star Alliance for Oneworld
    TAM Linhas Aéreas (JJ, São Paulo Congonhas) and US Airways (US, Phoenix Sky Harbor) have officially left Star Alliance and joined Oneworld with effect from March 31. The transition is the biggest single-day expansion of the oneworld alliance since its launch 15 years ago.

    LAN Airlines (LA, Santiago de Chile Int'l), TAM's partner in LATAM Airlines Group, has been a full member of oneworld since 2000 with all other LAN passenger airlines - LAN Argentina (4M, Buenos Aires Aeroparque), LAN Colombia (4C, Bogotá), LAN Ecuador (XL, Quito Int'l) and LAN Perú (LP, Lima) - joining the alliance as affiliate members since.

    US Airways' regional affiliates, operating as US Airways Express, also transitioned to oneworld, following US Airways' recent merger with American Airlines (AA, Dallas/Fort Worth).

    The two carriers will collectively add almost 100 new destinations to the Oneworld network with TAM contributing almost 45 new cities and US Airways adding more than 50.

    Oneworld will add another member on May 1 when SriLankan Airlines (UL, Colombo Int'l) joins the fold.
  • Read more 11MAR2014: LATAM Group studying Mexicana in light of AeroMéxico's success
    Mexicana (MX, México City) has reportedly piqued the interest of LAN Airlines (LA, Santiago de Chile Int'l) parent, LATAM, after the Chilean-Brazilian firm took note of AeroMéxico (AM, México City) and its strong performance, especially on international routes.

    Mexican newswire Reportur says LATAM has yet to proffer any offer to the now defunct Mexicana but has already carried out a study on the airline.

    "LAN has seen the returns being achieved by Aeromexico on international flights, and this has led it to conclude that despite the entry of three low-cost carriers - Interjet (4O, Toluca), Volaris (Y4, Toluca) and VivaAeroBus (VB, Monterrey General Mariano Escobedo) - there is room for another airline that also complements their network," an unnamed source at LATAM told the newswire.

    For its part, Mexicana has been embroiled in legal battles and bankruptcy hearings since the suspension of operations in 2010.

Schedule data shows the twinjet, on lease from LAN Airlines (LA, Santiago de Chile Int'l), will be used on Intra-Ecuadorian flights from Guayaquil to Quito Int'l, San Cristóbal, Seymour and from Quito Int'l to Cuenca, Guayaquil, San Cristóbal and Seymour.
  • Read more 05FEB2014: Air New Zealand considers its South American options
    Air New Zealand (NZ, Auckland Int'l) is currently mulling its options with regards to the South American market, deemed by CEO Christopher Luxon to be the "last white spot in the carrier’s network." With the impending withdrawal of Aerolineas Argentinas (AR, Buenos Aires Ezeiza) from Australasia, the whole market has effectively been handed to Oneworld carriers, Qantas (QF, Sydney Kingford Smith) and LAN Airlines (LA, Santiago de Chile Int'l). In its analysis of the airline's options, CAPA speculates that Air New Zealand could have presented an alternative route to South America for its new partner, Singapore Airlines (SQ, Singapore Changi), with Singapore Changi to South America via Auckland Int'l flights which, in terms of their length and duration, would be more or less comparable to Singapore Airline's existing Singapore - São Paulo Guarulhos via Barcelona El Prat service. It goes on to add that, given that Spain is a more "appealing" intermediate stopover in terms of its Spain-South America market and that New Zealand is geographically on the eastern side of South America, a Singapore - South America via New Zealand service could prove tricky. As such, Air New Zealand is reportedly considering launching its own services to Buenos Aires Ezeiza, Lima and Santiago de Chile Int'l among which only Lima has a Star Alliance hub with that of Avianca (AV, Bogotá) subsidiary Trans American Airlines (T0, Lima). However, as Peru is currently the smallest of the potential South American markets for Air New Zealand with the largest being Argentina, followed by Chile and Brazil, Air Zealand would have to rely entirely on connecting traffic beyond Lima, thereby rendering the Peruvian capital an unlikely choice. In terms of the Brazilian market, CAPA believes that Air New Zealand could target the growing China-Brazil market using its onward connections to China and Hong Kong, but reasons that connections beyond Sao Paulo would be difficult given Brazil's geographic location. Sao Paulo would also present problems alliance-wise given that TAM Linhas Aéreas (JJ, São Paulo Congonhas) will switch from Star Alliance to oneworld on March 30. Geographically, Santiago would offer better connectivity options to Air New Zealand if only for LAN Airlines' near total dominance of the market there. When Aerolineas Argetinas withdraws from Sydney Kingford Smith and Auckland in April, Santiago will become the only market served from Australasia by both LAN and Qantas. As such, CAPA concludes saying the Buenos Aires would likely prove the most logical market for Air New Zealand to enter though it would require support from the Argentinians, not to mention oneworld and Skyteam. "If Air NZ launched Buenos Aires with a codeshare with Aerolineas it would again give Aerolineas access to New Zealand and Australia as well as China. Air NZ could also potentially work with SIA in providing connections between Argentina and Southeast Asia."
