August 2006: ACCDT: On August 13th, an Air Algerie Cargo (ALG) L-100-30 Hercules (4880, 7T-VHG) crashed near Piacenza, Italy killing the 3 flight crew (FC) on board. The airplane was en route over Italy at an altitude of 24,000 ft, when the crew (FC) received an "A/P Fail" warning, indicating a problem with the autopilot. The autopilot was switched off 12 seconds later and the airplane immediately lost directional and longitudinal control. The crew (FC) were unable to regain control of the airplane as it plummeted towards the ground at high speed. The elapsed time from the time of the initial "A/P Fail" warning to when it impacted the ground was only 73 seconds.
Calculations showed that the airplane struck the ground at a nose-down attitude at a speed of approximately 850 to 900 km/hour. At the time of the accident, the Hercules was operating a scheduled cargo service (AH2208) between Algiers and Frankfurt.

December 2013: Air Algerie (ALG) is on the verge of announcing 3 new airplane orders, covering 3 regional airplanes, 8 narrow bodies and 3 wide bodies for delivery in 2015 - 2016.
(ALG) (CEO) Mohammed Saleh Boultif said that the purchase of the airplanes is part of the company's development plan and specified that (ALG) plans to purchase 3 airplanes with 250 seats, 8 airplanes with 150 seats, and 2 airplanes with 70 seats for domestic flights.
He further indicated the delivery of the airplanes will start by the end of 2014 and finish by 2017, adding the purchase will bring (ALG)'s fleet to 56 airplanes, improving its services.
January 2014: Air Algérie has committed to 8 Boeing (TBC) 737-800s, 3 Airbus A330-200, 250 seat airplanes, and placed firm orders for 3 ATR 72-600s, all to be delivered between next September and 2016. Boeing (TBC) said its deal for 8 737-800 airplanes was worth $724 million at list prices when the order was finalized.
March 2014: Air Algérie (ALG) is the 3rd largest airline in North Africa; >75% of its capacity is split between domestic and French markets. The 3rd largest airline in North Africa, after Egyptair (EGP) and Royal Air Maroc (RAM), Air Algérie (ALG)’s main base is Algiers, with nearly 40% of its weekly seats originating in the capital and largest city in Algeria. While its #3 position is unlikely to be under any serious threat from #4 airline Tunisair (TUN), which offers nearly -19,000 less weekly seats, Air Algérie (ALG) has itself trimmed >19,000 weekly seats (-15%) from its schedule this March, when compared to March 18 - 24th 2013.
The Algerian flag carrier (ALG) still dominates its home market, controlling nearly 55% of all seats, with #2 carrier Saudia (SVA) and #3 Aigle Azur (AZU) offering less than half of that share even when their weekly seats are combined. (ALG)’s position would seem secure from any imminent low-cost carrier (LCC) threat too, as Vueling (VUZ) is currently the only (LCC) serving Algeria, with <1% of weekly seats.
With nearly 76% of all weekly seats split (approximately 2 3rds to one-third) between Air Algérie (ALG)’s domestic services and France, these 2 country markets dwarf the #3 market of Spain. However, the importance of the top 2 markets has waned over the last 12 months, as they were responsible for nearly 80% of seats in March 2013. Indeed, both markets have been visited by the network planner’s axe in the past year, with domestic sectors being trimmed by nearly -6,000 weekly seats, while France has seen nearly -7,000 weekly seats culled. In the same period, (ALG)’s capacity commitment to Spain has gone pretty much unchanged with some marginal growth.
New entrants to (ALG)’s top 12 routes since last March are Mali and Niger, with Turkey and Morocco improving their positions to the detriment of troubled Tunisia, while Senegal has jumped to 9th from the 12th position it achieved a year ago. The top 12 country markets command >93% of all (ALG)’s, indicating its reliance on a narrow network, but this position has improved slightly since last March, as this figure has decreased from nearly 95%.
Its capital city capacity is crucial. The capacity cull is being felt across (ALG)’s network, with 4 out the top 5 city airport pairs being trimmed over the last 12 months, with -1,780 weekly seats being lost from the #1 route. Despite this reduction in seats, such is the importance of Paris Orly to Air Algérie (ALG), that the Parisian hub is still the 4th largest airport in (ALG)’s portfolio in terms of total weekly seats. 3 of the 4 (the exception being Algiers - Oran) domestic routes (in light green) in the top 12 have witnessed extra capacity year-on-year, with just 1 international service, Algiers to Casablanca, receiving extra seats since last March.
While the top 12 routes are clearly important to (ALG), their respective share of (ALG)’s flying has declined over the last 12 months, falling from 44% of seats to just >40% in March 2014. The bottom 3rd of the top 12 routes are all new entrants in the last year.
Over the course of spring 2014, Air Algérie (ALG) is expected to start up 5 new routes. Of these, 3 have been served before, namely the routes to Vienna (last served in November 1987), Lisbon (May 1994) and Paris (CDG) (September 2006), while one is seasonal, Valencia, which will be served until September 20th.
April 2014: Air Algérie (ALG) follows up its recent new route to Vienna by starting 2x-weekly (Mondays and Thursdays) service between Algiers (ALG) and Lisbon (LIS). The 1,110 km route, which launched on April 14th, will be served by a mix of (ALG)’s 737-600s and 737-800s. The route is already served by (TAP) Portugal, which operates 3x-weekly flights using a mix of Fokker F 100s and ERJ-145s operated by Portugalia (POR).
July 2014: News Item A-1: ACCDT: Air Algerie (ALG) MD-83 (JT8D-219) (1585-49847, /89 EC-JUG - - SEE PHOTO - - "ALG-2014-07-SWF MD-83 ACCDT"), leased from SwiftAir (SWF), Flight AH5017 after leaving Ougadouggou, the capital of Burkina Faso on its way to Algiers, Algeria, carrying 116 (6 crew and 110 passengers), crashed in neighboring Mali on July 24th after adjusting its flight route, due to a storm and heavy rains.
The flight was carrying 6 crew and 117 passengers from the following nationalities: 51 French, 27 Burkino Faso, 8 Lebanese, 6 Algerians, 5 Canadians, 2 Luxembourg, 1 Swiss, 1 Belgian, 1 Egyptian, 1 Ukrainian, 1 Nigerian, 1 Cameroonian, and 1 Malian.
The wreckage of Air Algerie Flight 5017 (AH5017) has been found in a “disintegrated state” in the Gossi region of northeastern Mali, near the border of Burkina Faso, according to French President Francois Hollande. He confirmed there were no survivors.
Hollande said a French military detachment had been sent to secure the crash site and had recovered the airplane's black boxes. While the cause of the crash remains unknown, weather is a factor being considered. French officials say they believe the airplane broke up only upon impact with the ground, rather than in mid-air.
Contact with the Boeing MD-83 was lost in the morning, 50 minutes after takeoff from Ouagadougou en route to Algiers. Air Algerie (ALG) said contact with AH5017 was lost just as air traffic control advised the airplane to change course due to extreme weather conditions over Africa.
The crash is the 3rd within a week following Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 on July 17 and TransAsia Airways Flight GE222 on July 23. USA officials say Flight MH17 was downed by a surface-to-air-missile.
News Item A-2: Air Algérie ((IATA) Code: AH, based at Algiers) (ALG) has placed an order for 2 Boeing next-generation 737-700C airplanes, valued at $152 million at current list prices. The order is part of Air Algerie (ALG)’s fleet renewal and expansion following January’s order for 8 737-800s.
The 2 new airplanes will provide the Algerian-flag carrier with increased flexibility depending on passenger and cargo demands. The order was booked in May 2014 and previously posted as unidentified. “The 737-700C will provide our fleet with flexibility, and enhances our ability to carry cargo on important routes,” Air Algérie (ALG) (CEO) Mohamed Salah Boultif said. It enables airlines to alternate between passenger and cargo layouts on a daily, weekly or seasonal basis depending on market requirements.
The 737-700C is a derivative of the 737-700 with strengthened wings, a main-deck cargo door and an in-floor cargo-handling system. In an all-passenger layout, the 737-700C can carry up to 140 passengers, while the all-cargo layout provides up to 40,000 lbs/18,200 kg of capacity.
Based in Algeria’s capital city Algiers, at Houari Boumedienne International Airport, Air Algérie (ALG) serves >40 destinations across Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, and the Middle East. The North African carrier operates a fleet of 17 737-800s and 5 737-600s. Including the current order, it has a total of 8 737-800s and 2 737-700Cs unfilled orders from Boeing (TBC).
(ALG) has added to its leased fleet with an MD-83 (49847, EC-JUG), sourced from Spanish wet-lease (ACMI) firm, Swiftair ((IATA) Code: WT, Madrid Barajas) (SWF). According to sources familiar with (ALG)'s operations, the contract will run for the duration of summer.
(ALG) has also wet-eased in an A330-300 from AirAsia X ((IATA) Code: D7, based at Kuala Lumpur International) (ASX) as well as two A340-300s from Hi Fly ((IATA) Code: 5K, based at Lisbon) (LXA).
(ALG) currently operates 48 airplanes and serves 27 countries, 76 destinations, 154 routes and 164 daily flights.
August 2014: Air Algerie (ALG) expanded its seasonal offering with the addition of weekly (Thursdays) operations from Algiers (ALG) to Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen (SAW) on August 7th. (ALG)’s new route to Istanbul’s 2nd gateway will be operated until September 18 by its 253-seat 767-300s and will face no competition from any other carrier. Furthermore, Air Algerie (ALG) is already flying to Istanbul Atatürk from Algiers with daily flights.
December 2014: News Item A-1: All airlines from Libya have been added to the European Commission (EC)’s aviation safety list, also known as the "airline blacklist," subject to an operating ban or operational restrictions within the European Union (EU).
The updated (EU) Air Safety List now includes Libya, but otherwise remains unchanged, with no countries removed from the list in this update.
(EU) Commissioner for Transport, Violeta Bulc said: “Recent events in Libya have led to a situation whereby the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) is no longer able to fulfill its international obligations with regard to the safety of the Libyan aviation sector. My priority in aviation is passenger safety, which is non-negotiable, and we stand ready to help the Libyan aviation sector as soon as the situation on the ground will allow for this.”
Bulc said she was pleased to see that “progress has been made in a number of countries whose carriers are on list, notably the Philippines, Sudan, Mozambique, and Zambia. Hopefully, this progress can lead to a positive decision in the future.”
The updated air safety list includes all airlines certified in 21 states, for a total of 308 airlines fully banned from (EU) skies: Afghanistan, Angola, Benin, Republic of the Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Djibouti, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Gabon (with the exception of 3 airlines that operate under restrictions and conditions), Indonesia (with the exception of 5 airlines), Kazakhstan (with the exception of 1 airline which operates under restrictions and conditions), Kyrgyzstan, Liberia, Libya, Mozambique, Nepal, Philippines (with the exception of 2 airlines), Sierra Leone, São Tomé and Príncipe, Sudan, and Zambia. The list also includes 2 individual airlines: Blue Wing Airlines (Suriname) and Meridian Airways ((CPB) (Ghana), for an overall total of 310 airlines.
The list also includes 10 airlines that may only operate into the (EU) using specific aircraft types. These are Air Astana (AKZ) (Kazakhstan), Afrijet (FRJ), Gabon Airlines and SN2AG (Gabon), Air Koryo (KOY) (Democratic People's Republic of Korea), Airlift International (AGH) (Ghana), Air Service Comores (the Comoros), Iran Air (IRN), TAAG Angolan Airlines (ANG) and Air Madagascar (MAD).
The (EU) air safety list covers airlines that are either considered to be unable to respect international aviation safety standards, or whose Civil Aviation Authorities (CAA)s are deemed unable to provide the necessary safety oversight as foreseen by international aviation safety rules. Some are banned outright from operating to the (EU), while others can only do so under very strict conditions. The list also serves as a tool to warn the traveling public, when traveling in other parts of the world.
The (EU) air safety committee, which draws up the list, consists of aviation safety experts from the Commission, each of the 28 member states of the Union, Norway, Iceland, Switzerland, and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
News Item A-2: ATR delivered its 200th ATR 72-600 to Air Algerie (ALG). The 1st of 3 ATR 72-600s ordered earlier this year will join Air Algerie (ALG)'s existing fleet of 12 ATR 72-500s. The deliveries will continue until June 2016.
April 2015: News Item A-1: Aviation regulators are expected to issue new advice to pilots (FC) after investigations into the crash of an Air Algerie (ALG) jet in Mali last July found it went out of control after being hit by ice, as an anti-icing system remained switched off.
France's (BEA) crash investigation agency, which is helping Mali to investigate the crash that killed 116 people, said the MD-83 jet appeared to have run into trouble after vital probes that measure pressure on the engine inlets, blocked up with ice.
Properly working probes are needed to help the McDonnell-Douglas airplane measure the thrust of its engines.
With the probes iced up as the Algiers-bound jet skirted a storm, the plane's autopilot thought the power was too high and slowed the engines below the level needed to maintain cruise height, starting a chain of events that sent it out of control, the (BEA) said on its website.
The statement explained some of the causes of the crash and said it had notified USA and European regulators, who would issue the new guidance.
Investigators have been hindered by damage to "black box" cockpit audio recordings, which were unusable, but have spent months reconstructing engine settings from the data recorder of the MD-83 jet which was operated by Spain's Swiftair (SWF).
Data analysed suggested the flight crew (FC) had not activated a de-icing system designed to protect the engine inlet probes.
The icing over of the pressure sensors is the first possible cause of the crash to be put forward by the investigators.
As it fell towards the ground, the jet rolled suddenly to the left and pointed almost straight down, the (BEA) said.
The crash is one of several accidents in which an airplane is thought to have lost control at high altitude, putting the spotlight partly on training to help pilots (FC) identify, and then deal with an aerodynamic stall, or loss of lift.
The (BEA) said black box data did not provide any indication the flight crew (FC) had used stall recovery manoeuvres, but said the investigation was continuing, with a final report expected in December.
It said a similar situation had started to unfold on a similar plane operated by Swiftair (SWF) <2 months before the Mali crash, but without serious consequences.
In June 2002, a McDonnell Douglas MD-82 jet operated by USA carrier Spirit Airlines (SPR) suffered a loss of thrust on both engines.
The (BEA) said it had shared information on all these incidents with the regulators, who would soon issue the guidance to help pilots (FC) identify similar problems.
McDonnell-Douglas was bought by Boeing (TBC) in 1997.
News Item A-2: Air Algérie (ALG) has presented its new cabin interior (SEE PHOTO - - "ALG-2015-04 - A330-200 C CABIN.jpg) on its 3 soon to be delivered A330-200 airplanes that were part of a contract signed in January 2014.

September 2015: Tunisair ((IATA) Code: TU, based at Tunis) (TUN) and Air Algérie ((IATA) Code: AH, based at Algier) (ALG) have strengthened their existing relationship with the signing of a framework partnership agreement in Algiers on September 8, 2015.
Under the deal, the carriers will benefit from enhanced synergies in the spheres of airplane maintenance, flight operations (including aircraft chartering), joint purchasing, and staff training. The two carriers have also pledged to cooperate in flight scheduling, commercial passenger and cargo agreements, organizational exchanges and Information Technology (IT).
Currently, Tunisair (TUN) serves Algier, Oran, and Setif from its Tunis hub, while Air Algérie (ALG) serves Tunis from Algiers and El Oued.
November 2015: A320-214 (3840, TS-INO), ex-(F-WWDH) leased from Nouvelair (NOU).
February 2015: Air Algérie (ALG) is planning to lease in additional Boeing wide body airplane as it prepares to expand its longhaul fleet. According to reports in the Algerian media, the national carrier is in talks with lessors >2 787-9s and 2 777-300ERs.
At present, Air Algérie operates 8 A330-200s and 3 767-300s on high-density shorthaul routes as well as on longhaul flights to Beijing Capital, Dubai International, and Montréal Trudeau. The Algerian national carrier is also planning to make its USA debut with New York (JFK) flights scheduled for summer this year.
October 2017: Air France (AFR) began services from Montpellier (MPL) to Algiers (ALG) on October 30. The 769 km sector will be served 2x-weekly (Mondays and Saturdays) using (AFA)’s A319s and A320s. (AFR) faces direct competition on this sector in the form of Air Algérie (ALG), which also operates 2x-weekly.
