@AirlineFlyer Aeroflot is getting creative to operate international flights. It’s spinning up a hub in Sochi using Russian-built Superjet 100 aircraft that nobody will want to repossess or impound. Flights operate to 17 destinations in Armenia, Egypt, Israel, Kazakhstan, Turkey and Uzbekistan.
@ByERussell Aeromexico has exited Chapter 11.”As we move forward, we will not only continue to streamline our Company to become even more sustainable, resilient, and competitive, but we will also significantly expand our network and fleet,” says CEO Andres Conesa.
@ByERussell Alaska Airlines “honestly would love to accelerate” the timeline for removing its last A320s, said CFO Shane Tackett. The current plan has them replaced with 737 Maxes by end-2023 or early-2024.
@ByERussell Gol sees yields 30% higher than 2019 this spring, and that’s without the return of most corporate travellers from blue chip commodity companies like Petrobras and Vale.
@ByERussell “In the end, we respond to consumer demand,” said VivaAerobus CEO Juan Carlos Zuazua on growth at Mexico City’s new Felipe Ángeles airport. Most say the new airport needs better transport links, and air service incentives to take-off. @chrissiemurray.
