Quite a few new routes in 2011

February 7th, 2011

 

Hi there. We start off this week with quite a number of new routes in an attempt to keep YOU updated. We will look into the new services very briefly as the sheer quantity does not allow us to go into the details.

One year ago Allegiant moved 10 of its routes from Orlando Sanford International Airport to Orlando International Airport but now announced the homecoming of all ten routes in a bid to consolidate its all Orlando flights. The routes in question are e.g. Orlando Sanford – Allentown, Orlando Sanford – Des Moines or Orlando Sanford – Lexington. By now the return of all the routes should be accomplished.

While Allegiant is reshuffling the existing routes, Skyways is growing big time. Following the merger with Avia Express and a shift in ownership, this Swedish-based low-cost airline is adding six new international destinations and one domestic destination to its route network. The carriers new base becomes Airport Jönköping. The change will be marked by the opening of new services from Jönköping to Brussels and from Jönköping to Berlin Tegel. Both services will be in operation as of March 28, 2011.

Low cost airlines Allegiant Air announced it was beginning a project to add 16 seats to its fleet of 150-seat MD-80 series aircraft, bringing the total number of sale able seats to 166 on each of these aircraft.

Allegiant also operates three 130-seat MD-87 aircraft which will not be re-configured.

Allegiant expects to invest up to $50 million in capital under this project, which includes substantial cabin re-design work such as removal of galleys. The first aircraft is expected to be converted in the third quarter of 2011, with completion of the last aircraft by the end of 2012. The additional seats will also result in job growth at Allegiant since a fourth flight attendant, up from the current staff of three, will be required on the 166-seat configuration aircraft.

High sky rip-off

July 22nd, 2010

Most of us have got used to the increasing share of additional fees and charges of all hue in the overall travel expenses. And even though we all seem to know how things work, it may come as a surprise when we take a look at the recent figures. The latest findings published by the consultancy company IdeaWorks and the travel technology partner Amadeus reveal that the ancillary revenues have been growing ever more rapidly over the last years. Suffice it to say that the 96 airlines included in the research earned in this way a total of $13.5 billion for 2009 alone which means an increase of 43% compared to the previous year.

Despite the fact that European travellers do have a good reason to be discontent about the additional expenses, e.g when travelling with Ryanair, these are the passengers in The United States who seem to bear the heaviest burden. The research results display namely that the American companies top the list of “the high sky extortionists”. Highest in the 2009 ranking scores Allegiant Air with 29.2% of its annual revenues being derived from ancillary services including the whole range of services, such as e.g. car rental. Next on the list one can find among others Spirit Airlines and Ryanair.

Concise information concerning both the above-mentioned airlines and many others may be found on this overview page.
