Slovenia in talks with Lufthansa over Adria route takeover


The Slovenian government is in discussions with Lufthansa, as well as Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport’s operator Fraport over the transfer of some of Adria Airways’ routes to the German-led group of airlines. Lufthansa’s wholly-owned subsidiaries include Austrian Airlines, Air Dolomiti, Brussels Airlines, Eurowings and Swiss International Air Lines, none of which operate to Slovenia’s capital. Within these markets, Adria’s destination network included Brussels, Frankfurt, Munich, Vienna and Zurich. These were also among the company’s busiest routes and were all codeshared by its fellow Star Alliance members. Prior to suspending all of its operations last week, Adria operated a number of flights for Lufthansa group carriers through ACMI wet-lease contracts. The airline maintained services for Austrian Airlines, Swiss and Lufthansa itself.

The Slovenian Minister for Economic Development and Technology, Zdravko Počivalšek, said around half of Adria’s routes could be transferred to Lufthansa. He further noted that discussion would take place with the German airline over the possibility of jointly establishing a new Slovenian national carrier. However, Mr Počivalšek warned the process could take some time and required a political consensus in the country. He added Adria’s collapse would have short-term economic effects, but that other airlines would eventually step in to pick up demand. “Slovenia has tremendous tourist potential and carriers can take advantage of the country's need for air connectivity”, he noted.

As of this morning Brussels Airlines has scheduled a new six weekly service between the Belgian capital and Ljubljana, which will operate with the Airbus A319 aircraft. Starting November 4, tickets will be available for booking from tomorrow. In a statement, the carrier said, "The flight schedule allows for connections with the rest of the Brussels Airlines network via Brussels Airport. Important connections are mainly Berlin, Copenhagen, Lisbon, London Heathrow, Madrid, Oslo and Tel Aviv". Further flight information for the new service can be found here

Brussels Airlines will take over Adria's flights between Ljubljana and Brussels

Adria's passenger share at its home base in Ljubljana stood at 56% in 2018, down from a high of over 77% in 2010. This year, the Slovenian carrier was expected to account for around 50% of Ljubljana's traffic. Adria faced no competition on a number of routes from the Slovenian capital. They include: Brussels, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, Munich, Prague, Pristina, Sarajevo, Skopje, Sofia, Tirana, Vienna and Zurich. Routes that were operated by both Adria and another carrier in 2019 were Amsterdam (Transavia), Paris (Air France) and Podgorica (Montenegro Airlines). The Slovenian carrier also maintained a number of charters. In addition to services from Slovenia, Adria Airways also operated flights from Pristina to Frankfurt and Munich, as well as from Tirana to Frankfurt. In 2018, the carrier handled 157.931 passengers to and from Pristina Airport where Lufthansa's Eurowings has since established a base and launched several new routes, among which is Munich. The Slovenian carrier declared bankruptcy yesterday, following 58 years of service.

      LH will tell SLO ministers same they already told 4K. Too small market for an airline to exist. LH would reconsider if there wld be one airline for all ex YU, since this will never happen again, not even one airline for HR MNE SLO, we can forget about LH.
      The only idea I had in my dreams was to create on airline for YU and call it in Belgrade Lufthansa Danube and for SLO MNE HR even Albania to call the same subsidiary company Lufthansa Adriatic. Flight Ops Control all to be done in Germany, local ex YU pilots and flight attendants. But politically this is almost impossible.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It is always better to have subsidies than not have subsidies. Because the Slovenian government is under a lot of pressure and apparently agreed nothing when they still had a choice of saving Adria, LH will push him to pay a lot to do what they would probably do anyway, ie start feeding their hubs in FRA and MUC from LJU. They will milk Slovenian government the way Adria never even thought would be possible. This is one of the downsides of not having a national carrier, learned heavy way by Slovenia. What would be enough to keep Adria alive, will now need to be doubled or tripled and will feed LH.

      Delete
    2. good joke. if you average out the average loss of JP for the last 10 years and the growing debt and decreasing capital, you get a number of cca. 12,2 million EUR a year average loss not counting the amassed debt and loss of assets (ok, that is kind of incorporated by means of bookkeeping) that would have to be pumped into JP every year to keep a status quo. So 3-times 15 is 45 million a year. Nowhere is a subsidy or whatever that high. Yes even SLO politicians ain't that stupid, or more precisely they don't have money for such escapades.

      The reality is that between 2008 and 2018 per yearly reports the accumulated loss was 134,5 million EUR, while at the same tame there are no assets and the debt of the company is 90 million at time of DUTB inspection this last week.

      There is no way in hell that any subsidy could cost that much any way you like to spin it.

      Delete
    3. Creative accounting on your part, but good that you know how big the subsidies will be.

      If you drawn, and Adria has been drawning for a longer period, your losses just skyrocket. Contractors demand prepayments, lessors demand much higher lease payments, credit card companies withold payments, you contract a lot of obligations to pay compensation for delayed/cancelled flights, clients turn their back to you and the sales go down, etc. It is a snowball.

      In a stabilized business, losses would never be so huge.

      What would be more than enough is 1) stop subsidising transfer routes where you have the least cost sensitive customer and the costs of your segment are just a small fraction of the whole ticket, and 2) get PSO money on routes that are essential for Slovenia but are loss making.

    1. LH is not in the business of bringing in tourists. Tourists fly direct and mostly on lcc. Having a huge choice of leisure destinations whether for a city-break or vacations, they very rarely go for short-hauls with transfers and obviously LH will not provide any direct flights from LJU to any place other than its hubs like MUC or FRA. So talking about tourists travelling to Slovenia on LH is just far from the truth.

      Delete
    2. artflyer, agree.
      Nowadays people tend to spend much more money on experiences during the city break than on air fares. In the end, a staylish restaurant and hotels are more instagrammable than a sandwich on a LH flight.

  8. The fact they don’t want to start routes to *A hubs without subsidies is clear to me. Most of the pax or the break even portion was made due to transfer pax from SEE countries. Now that there are no further connections the business is gone. Adria had a business model which could be evaluated only as a whole. Route by route I assume nothing was profitable.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I highly doubt it. There would be too many segments if indeed somebody would travel on Adria to LJU, then on Adria from LJU to MUC or FRA and then onward on LH. Almost always it would be easier to have a direct flight to MUC or FRA hub and then onwards on LH (just two segments). If there were no direct flights to MUC or FRA then the demand was absolutely negliegable. Summing up: LJU to LH hub was always a first segment of flight and LH needs no transfers in LJU to upkeep LJU-MUC or LJU-FRA.

      Delete
    2. If this was the case they would have already stepped in. But they stay away.

  9. I haven't seen any lightning reaction from any other carrier offering rescue fares or quickly filling the gap as it was following the Malév demise in 2012.
    I guess there is indeed no interest again due to the small market.
    That said, this reconfirms our theory that LJU is simply surrounded by way too many airports especially a very important one like VCE.
    But there is also Treviso and Trieste, ZAG, SZG..

    Yes. JU and YM reacted but those additional flights are really insignificant and cannot correspond to the 56% traffic.

      Also JU basically took over their market in Tirana. So they did more than marketing.

      Delete
    3. Reroute would mean they took away passengers that are flying on an alternative route by choosing a product that is better or cheaper or both. In this case there was no choice and JU offered cheap flights, so it was marketing.

    1. LH didn't lose one eur on Adria. 4K used a delicate scheme to extract money out of Adria, look for the chart at the end:

      https://siol.net/posel-danes/novice/drzavo-prosijo-za-denar-iz-adrie-pa-crpajo-milijone-508166

      There is a ? on that chart on who really owns 4K. LH never officially denied being behind 4K. Why not?

      LH wanted two goals: Kick Etihad out of European airlines (Air Berlin, Alitalia, Etihad Regional, Air Serbia) and so far managed to achieve most goals. Adria was used to buy Etihad Regional and to later go bankrupt. Second LH goal was to kill small government supported airlines in CEE. 4K took over Adria from government and killed it over time. LH has 100% success on both goals and will now slowly take over: Eurowings taking over PRN-MUC without Adria being in the middle; Brussels and Swiss will start LJU and give LH couple of weeks before they announce LJU from FRA and MUC.

    1. It must be for bureaucrats flying that route and subsidized by Slovenian taxpayers money.
      It's a multi million eu (easy) business done by Adria before.
      Hope they didn't pay Adria in advance if they did it: the overpaid seats will be bought again for the second time for the same seats. (seats quota bought in bulk for bureaucrats flying from Slovenia to Bruxelles and viceversa (and when seats not booked ready for friends (?) with "magic code" (?)) , price is lower than full time price but not that convenient, it was a good business for Adria).

    4. well, as of today they cannot be subsidized. The law hasn't gone into parliament procedures yet. And the Adria contract for tickets cannot be just transfered. You need another public tender.

      And no, there was no uprfront payment as already explained 261 times on this site. The route does not get subsidies, but the contract is for plane tickets at a fixed price and some other benefits (saving seats, rerouting, flying at least x-times per week, etc). Payment is per ticket issued (i.e. when the governemnt entity actually buys the individual ticket).

      My guess is that SN will start flying and then another tender is going to be given out. Because I thing SLO governemnt wants 2 daily flights, one morning and one evening. If SN will be interested is another matter, cause A319 is a bit big for 2 daily flights. We shall see.

      Delete
    5. Great news for LJU but bad news for ZAG and OU.

      Delete
    6. to get things straight: a subsidy is in its original form a payment for rendering services and covers costs, even if no-one is flying on the plane or for surcharging the loss from the revenue and the costs in order to achieve break-even or some small profit.

      So generally something called a subsidy is paid out irrelevant of the number of passengers. The carrier just has to provide the flight on the route.

      And the JP deal with SLO governemnt is therefore not a subsidy in its classical meaning, because only each ticket is paid as it is issued. And the risk of no-passengers is solely on the carrier.

      Delete
    7. Just don't forget that tickets were bought in bulk and who can fly and when was decided by the Slovenian contractor (just bureaucratic practice). Not used tickets were "lost" so available seats can be easily used by "friends" with connections. Have you ever seen the bunch of people using that tickets anyway? Many legit an other not I suppose...

      Delete
    8. But no one flying with them cares as they are "free" (paid for).

      Delete
    9. no they weren't bought in bulk but according to needs. The custodian of the contract is providing the details of the used tickets and remember seing that some of the agencies and entities had plenty of room..in the half year they used something like 1/4 to 1/5 of the ticked they scheduled.

      WHile I see some tickets sometimes going somewhere, the oversight in a tight budget is something that even in SLO has changed and does not work like you've proposed.

      Let's not forget, that the last tenders are structured as such, that the payment for ticket goes from the budget of each individual agency and entity, not the central government. So if the agency for forrestry and fishery had only 1 BRU meeting in a year and sent a delegation of 3, it cannot have expense for 25 tickets.

      And there is doble oversight by the custodian (ministry of public administration) and with the court of audit.

      So no, no bulk disappearance of tickets is happening. 1 or 2 here and there totally possible, but no bulk shenanigans. These times have past, even in SLO public administration.

    1. Ha? Nobody paid anyone anything... Currently they're just examining if it's even feasible to subsidize some lines. If you ask me, there's no chance EU would even allow that.

    3. They will subsidize the Brussels route and that's about it. LH will probably ask Fraport for some subsidies and they will give them a price list. Meanwhile other airlines in LJU will keep on benefiting from the situation. It's been what? Ten days with no flights to ZRH, VIE and MUC?

    4. The latest info is, that all 5 hub destinations (Brussels, Frankfurt, Zurich, Munich, Vienna) will be replaced in November.

  31. No need for a new airline. OS to VIE, Air Dolomiti to MUC, LH to FRA, LX to ZRH, SK to CPH and AZ to MXP is all that is needed and a few OU buses to ZAG airport....and Wizz can take care of the rest.
