  • Read more 17FEB2014: Avianca Brasil considers various manufacturers for A318 replacement
    Avianca Brasil (O6, Rio de Janeiro Santos Dumont) is studying proposals from Embraer (São José dos Campos), Bombardier (BBA, Montréal Trudeau), Sukhoi Civil Aircraft (Moscow Zhukovsky), and Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation (Tokyo Haneda) as it prepares to issue an order for up to fifty regional jets to replace its outgoing A318-100s. In an interview with the Montreal Gazette, CEO José Efromovich said the size of the order would depend on the Brazilian government's regional aviation program which seeks to stimulate growth in underserved domestic markets through the creation of new carriers. “We could start a regional subsidiary, or create a whole new company, or even do a deal with an existing airline for the regional program,” Efromovich said. “We are open to all options.” Among the aircraft that have shown the strongest promise Mr Efromovich said, is the Embraer E2 Regional Jet due for delivery starting in 2018. The CEO previously disclosed ongoing plans to acquire replacements for the airline's Fokker 100s from Airbus Industrie (AIB, Toulouse Blagnac).

    Avianca Brasil (O6, Rio de Janeiro Santos Dumont) CEO José Efromovich has confirmed that his airline is still in talks with Embraer (São José dos Campos) to acquire thirty aircraft. Speaking at a press conference in the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo, Mr Efromovich said his airline would also acquire more Airbus Industrie (AIB, Toulouse Blagnac) jets to replace the airline's existing fleet of thirteen Fokker 100s. "We will withdraw Fokker aircraft and replace them with aircraft capable of carrying 164 passengers; the Airbus 320 model," he said. During his presentation, Mr Efromovich also said that the airline would follow Azul Linhas Aéreas Brasileiras (AD, Campinas Viracopos) in capping its domestic fares at BRR999 (USD420) from February to July in anticipation of the upcoming FIFA World Cup.
  • Read more 15DEC2013: Star Alliance, Air India resume talks; Avianca Brasil to join in 2014
    Air India (AI, Mumbai Int'l) could join Star Alliance as early as 2014 after a meeting of the alliance's members in Vienna resolved to lift a suspension on the Indian national carrier's application. "We are confident that association with Star Alliance would go a long way to strengthen both of us," Rohit Nandan, CEO of Air India said. Air India's initial application was suspended in July 2011 on the grounds it failed to satisfy minimum requirements. "The re-integration process will begin now. There have been some fresh requirements brought into the structure since 2011. We will have to do a gap analysis to integrate with the system," Pankaj Srivastava, director commercial at Air India, told the Economic Times. In a related development, the Vienna meeting also agreed to extend membership to Avianca Brasil (O6, Rio de Janeiro Santos Dumont). Integration teams from Star Alliance, Avianca (AV, Bogotá) and Avianca Brazil will now commence work to include the Brazilian carrier in the Alliance during 2014.
