#Battle for #AirSupremacy on Key #AustralianRoute Heats Up The battle for air supremacy on Australia’s busiest route is intensifying after a dramatic shake-up of #Australia -#NewZealand alliances.
At stake is over 17 percent of the total international air market out of Australia, with the New Zealand service attracting more than 7 million passengers in the year to May 2018 – up from 6.8 million in the same period two years ago.
The turning point was the shock April divorce between #AirNewZealand and #VirginAustralia after seven years of partnership.
At the time, Air New Zealand Chief Revenue Officer Cam Wallace said “the time is now right for each airline to focus on its own objectives.” The alliance officially ends in October and the subsequent Trans-Tasman game of musical chairs has seen Virgin as the likely loser, with Air New Zealand aligning itself with Qantas in a codeshare deal.
At the moment, the market is finely balanced. In May, Air New Zealand had almost 100,000 inbound passengers between the two countries. Virgin had 42,435. Meanwhile, Qantas had almost 70,000 passengers, and its low-cost stablemate Jetstar added another 25,771. Competition between the Air New Zealand/Virgin camp and the Qantas/Jetstar group was further heightened by Emirates’ withdrawal from this route on which it carried 33,276 in May 2016.
NEW ARRANGEMENTS COME INTO PLACE
Despite their differences (Air New Zealand is part of Star Alliance while Qantas is with One World), the two airlines are working on a reciprocal codeshare agreement that leverages the strengths of their domestic networks, making travel within Australia and New Zealand easier. #Boeing#Airbus#airport#airplane#aviation#avgeek#aviation4u#aviationdaily#aviationlovers#planespotting#megaplane#megaaviation#Pilot#Pilotlife#Crew#Crewlife#Groundstaff#Groundstafflife @Airnewzealand
