  • Read more 15DEC2013: Monarch to announce winner of $6bn aircraft tender during 1Q 2014
    Monarch Airlines (ZB, London Luton) is currently reviewing submissions from Airbus Industrie (AIB, Toulouse Blagnac), Boeing (BOE, Chicago O'Hare) and Bombardier (BBA, Montréal Trudeau) for a total of sixty new aircraft for delivery up to 2024. Announcing its unaudited results for the Financial Year ended 31 October 2013, Monarch said the contract would be worth USD6billion at list prices, and expects to announce a decision in the first quarter of 2014. "With the retirement of some existing aircraft, these new additions will expand Monarch’s fleet from 39 currently to 62 and are expected to give the airline the youngest fleet in Europe by 2021. The initial financial evaluation suggests that there will be a substantial benefit to the airline from a significantly improved cost per seat," the airline said. Among the types under consideration are the A320neo and A321neo, the B737 MAX and the CS100 and CS300. As part of its existing fleet expansion programme, Monarch took delivery of nine aircraft during 2013, including two new Airbus A320-200 (sl)s and two new A321-200s, and retired two older aircraft. In 2014, a further eight aircraft will join the fleet while five will be retired.
  • Read more 09SEP2013: Garuda leases Air Europa A330-300s in preparation for Hajj charters
    Garuda Indonesia (GA, Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta) has taken delivery of both A330-300s EC-LXA (c/n 670) and EC-LXR (c/n 1097) on wet-lease from Air Europa (UX, Palma de Mallorca Son Sant Joan) for use on its Hajj-charter operations. Both aircraft will be based at Makassar and join at least six other A330-200s wet-leased from other carriers already operating for Garuda during previous Hajj seasons such as Air Transat (TS, Montréal Trudeau), Hi Fly (5K, Lisbon), Monarch Airlines (ZB, London Luton) and XL Airways France (SE, Paris CDG). In addition, Garuda also wet-leased a B747-400 N464MC (msn 26341) from Atlas Air (5Y, New York JFK) for the first time this year. The first batch of pilgrims is scheduled to leave for Saudi Arabia later this month.
  • Read more 16JUL2013: Denmark's Comefly abandons Florida plans; blames Rejsegarantifonden
    Comefly (Aalborg) has abandoned plans to resume its Aalborg to Fort Myers Southwest Florida flights after it claimed it was unable to raise sufficient funds to satisfy the Danish government's Travel Guarantee Fund's (Rejsegarantifonden) minimum requirements. In a press release, Comefly stated that when the route began operating in 2011, all the Fund required was a simple guarantee of USD1.3million. Since then, however, the requirements have changed with carriers now obligated to put down an additional risk premium of 15% of revenue as security, amounting to USD12.3million, thereby rendering the route unviable for the Danish tour operator to serve. Comefly operated 6 non-stop flights using an A330-200 leased from Monarch Airlines (ZB, London Luton) between Denmark and the US in 2011.
