Tweet Picks:@AvWeekScho Hawaiian Airlines initially intended to restart its Sydney route at 3Xweek, but when the NSW govt relaxed entry rules (for Australians anyway) the airline decided to “jump back in with five flights” per week, Ingram said #CAPASummit.
@AvWeekScho Virgin Australia is aiming for 33% domestic market share, says CEO Jayne Hrdlicka. Virgin will also be a strong player in short-haul international, but whether it goes back to long-haul with its own aircraft remains “an open question.” #CAPASummit.
@ByERussell Air Transat has a new jam with its new network leisure-carrier strategy. The airline is optimistic about growth with its new A321LRs, and expanding portfolio of partners in 2022, writes @munnikrishnan.
@ByERussell Avianca plans to add 200+ new routes, and at least 25 additional narrowbodies aircraft in 2 years after slashing costs in bankruptcy. ICYMI.
@ByERussell China’s re-certification of the Max is the catalyst Boeing needed to move forward with a production rate bump to ~31 aircraft/month in 2022, reports @jonostrower . The rate was 19/month in October.
