Australia. Perth Airport under pressure by Emirates

Australia. Perth Airport under pressure by Emirates | Allplane: Airlines Strategy & Marketing | Scoop.it

Emirates, the world's biggest international airline, wants to bring the giant 490-seat A380 to Perth within 12 months and introduce a third daily service, according to airline president Tim Clark.

Speaking from Dubai, Mr Clark said the airline's twice-daily flights into Perth were full. "We want to introduce a third daily flight sooner than later and certainly within 12 months," he said.

Perth Airport can't properly handle the high passenger numbers of the A380 and Mr Clark said these might not be addressed fully until expansion of the international terminal was complete in 2014.

Sounds good, but also sounds expensive. A fully dedicated bar doesn't really apply to guys like me who drink, or want to pick up chicks in the same place you pick up turbulence.

Allplane: Planespotting in Moscow: a colorful festival | Allplane: Airlines Strategy & Marketing | Scoop.it

Diversity of airlines, because besides the main European and Asian airlines you get to see many airlines that seldom operate outside Russia or the countries of the former Soviet Union and also diversity of aircraft, because Moscow's airports are one of the few major hubs where you can still see a considerable amount of Soviet-made aircraft alongside the typical Boeing and Airbus models.

Allplane: Too much of a good thing? Brazil's airports are suffering a growth crisis

Allplane: Too much of a good thing? Brazil's airports are suffering a growth crisis | Allplane: Airlines Strategy & Marketing | Scoop.it

One of the countries that has been experiencing sustained growth in the last decade is Brazil. The country's magnificent rates of growth have had its reflection on the aviation sector too and the number of air passengers in Brazil has more than doubled in less than a decade, from 71 million in 2003 to 154 million in 2010.

Airbus reaches for larger market share in Japan

"We aim to reach 20% of the market share in the near term and 50% in longer term," an Airbus official told ATW. "We consider Japan to be a key country for Airbus, both as a potential buyer of aircraft and as a partner in industrial co-development and co-production," the official added.

It would make sense that Japan would have more planes, though I wonder if they're as good making planes as they are making cars. Seeing how I drive a Subaru Impreza, and I've always wanted to visit Japan. The crime rate over there is suppose to be really low, and I think it would be interesting to see just why that is.

Allplane: Volotea still flying under the radar...but for how long?

Allplane: Volotea still flying under the radar...but for how long? | Allplane: Airlines Strategy & Marketing | Scoop.it

These past weeks have been quite hectic for Volotea, Europe’s startup airline...and I say "Europe's" because as we progressively get to know more about the project it becomes more and more clear that this is a project with European ambitions. Just a few months after Volotea was unveiled, its network already spans most of Italy, France and Spain, with some routes reaching as far as Poland and the Greek islands. Reminds me of Flybe, but on a much wider, pan-European, scale.
