Route 1: Islamabad - Guangzhou

China Southern A330

Data

Carrier

China Southern

Aircraft

A330s, A321s and B737s

Frequency

5

Start Date

September 2017

Distance

4072 km

O&D Traffic Demand (2016)

7,782

Growth % YOY

-9.4 percent

Average Fare $ (one way)

$515 

Insight

The service will facilitate the trade of goods between Pakistan and the Pearl River Delta. Also, China Southern will be able to target connecting flows onward to the rest of China, Southeast Asia and Australia (traffic that historically has travelled through the Middle East).


Route 2: Rome - New Jersey

Norwegian 787

Data

Carrier  Norwegian
Aircraft  B787
Frequency  4
Start Date November 2017
Distance 6,913
O&D Traffic Demand (2016) 371,994
Growth % YOY -2.9 percent
Average Fare $ (one way) $438

Insight

While Rome is not Norwegian's largest base, the reaction from Alitalia is likely to be slow. Norwegian will access a large VFR market that will increase awareness of the carrier and allow it to strengthen its position amongst LCCs.


Route 3: Moscow - Bordeaux

Podeba 737

Data

Carrier  Pobeda
Aircraft  B737
Frequency  TBC
Start Date TBC
Distance 2,939 km
O&D Traffic Demand (2016)

7,911                                               

Growth % YOY 30 percent
Average Fare $ (one way)  $252

Insight

A direct service would provide Pobeda with the opportunity to capture a sizeable indirect market (7,911 passengers, SVO - BOD) and expand its international network.
