October 2005: Iberia Airlines (IBE) decided not to participate in the privatization of AeroMexico (AMX) and Mexicana (CMA), citing unfavorable market conditions. According to (AFX) in Madrid, (IBE) Chairman, Fernando Conte previously expressed concern over the ability of the 2 airlines to compete with their current business structure against emerging low-cost carriers.

Airbus (EDS) received formal approval from its shareholders, (EADS) and (BAE) Systems, for industrial launch of the A350 on the basis of 140 "firm order commitments" from nine customers, one of which is unidentified.

As previously announced, the airplane will be offered in 2 versions, the A350-800 seating 258 in a 3-class configuration with a range of 8,800 nm, and the A350-900 seating 316 with a range of 7,500 nm. The A350-800 will enter service in mid-2010, while the larger dash A350-900 arrives later in the year.
Rolls-Royce (RR) announced that it finally had reached agreement with Airbus (EDS) to supply a new variant of its (Trent) engine series for the A350. The (Trent 1700) will be available for A350 deliveries from mid-2011. The airframe will launch with a version of the (GEnx). To date, (GE) has captured all firm orders from identified customers, a total of 130 shipsets, plus 32 options.
Courpron said the delay in bringing (RR) into the program was owing to both technical and commercial considerations: "We wanted to make sure we knew what (RR) had to offer." Implying that the delay was partly due to the engine-maker's negotiating position, he said "it was not a coincidence" that (RR) came aboard at virtually the same time (EDS) received authorization to build the jet. "We felt very comfortable going the whole way with just (GE)," he added. "We sold 140 of them without (RR)."
The current customer list comprises Air Europa (ARE) (10), ALAFCO (12), CIT (TCI) (5), GECAS (GEF) (10), Kingfisher Airlines (KFH) (5), Qatar Airways (QTA) (60), TAM (TPR) (8), US Airways (USA) (20) and an unidentified customer (10).
The (Trent 1700) will offer a thrust rating of 75,000 lbs and will run for the first time in mid-2009. The four-digit nomenclature is a departure for (RR). A spokesperson told this website that the "1700" is a reference to the mid-70,000-lb thrust rating, not an homage to the (Trent 700) that powers the A350's closest sibling, the A330.
"We have strong, market-leading or sole-source positions with the (Trent) on the A330, latest A340s and the A380, and we are equally confident that the (Trent 1700) will establish itself successfully on the A350," (RR) President, Civil Aerospace, Mike Terrett said.

Aviation Partners Boeing (APB) said (ARE) ordered 34 Blended Winglet Systems as buyer-furnished equipment on 737-800s scheduled to deliver between 2007 and 2014 and up to 21 additional shipsets with which to retrofit dash 800s already in service. The Palma de Mallorca-based carrier operates five Blended Winglet-equipped 737-800s. (ARE)'s parent, Globalia Mantenimiento Aeronautico, will install the retrofit winglets.
Blended Winglets provide block fuel savings of up to -5%, depending on route and stage length, resulting in fuel savings for typical 737-700/-800 operators of more than >100,000 gallons per airplane per year, according to (APB). Additional benefits include "reduced engine maintenance costs, improved takeoff and range performance, reduced engine emissions and reduced noise footprint on takeoff of 6.5%."

March 2007: General Electric (GE) has ruled out a variant of the Engine Alliance (GP7000) powerplant, which powers the A380, for the A350 XWB-1000. A (GE) spokesperson said that "it is not being considered." The engine, a joint venture of (GE) and Pratt & Whitney (P&W), is currently offered only on the A380. The A350 XWB-1000 is to be powered by a (Trent 1000) at 95,000 lbs thrust. There had been brief discussions between (GE) and Airbus (EDS) on a possible 105,000 lbs (GEnx) derivative, but those talks lapsed. Meanwhile, the status of existing orders for the (GEnx)-powered A350 XWB-800/-900 remains up in the air, with (GE) stating that "we are still doing technical studies but are not close to a business agreement." Six customers for the original A350 - - Air Europa (10), US Airways (20), (ALAFCO) (ALF) (12), (GECAS) (GEF) (10), TAM (TPR) (10) and Qatar Airways (QTA) (60) - - ordered the (GEnx) and most analysts considered it a formality that new agreements will be concluded. But according to a spokesperson, "(GE) does not have a deal with (EDS) on any A350 model and previous contracts we had, are for an airplane that doesn't exist."

September 2007: Air Europa (ARE), Copa Airlines (COP), and Kenya Airways (KEN) officially became SkyTeam (STM)'s first "associate airlines," which the alliance said grows its network by 47 additional destinations and nearly 500 additional daily flights. SkyTeam (STM) associate airlines will enjoy many of the benefits of full membership, such as linking loyalty programs, sharing airport lounges and "seamless" flight connections to SkyTeam (STM) carriers. But the associates will operate under the direction of a sponsor member, that represents their interests in all decision-making regarding the alliance and serves as the liaison between associate and alliance members. "Our entry into (STM) . . . effectively increases the reach of our network across the globe," (COP) (CEO), Pedro Heilbron said. "Our passengers will connect seamlessly between (COP) and our (STM) partners using a single ticket."
INCDT: (ARE) 737-85P (256-28322, /99 EC-HBM), chartered by the United Nations (UN), was on approach to runway 27 at Katowice Airport, Poland, at night in poor visibility.

The 11 crew (FC)/(CA) and 114 passengers were OK.
November 2007: Iberia (IBE)'s sale is looking more probable, following its confirmation that it received a takeover approach from a consortium led by private equity group Gala Capital. In March, a consortium led by USA investment fund (TPG), that included British Airways (BAB) (which holds a 10% stake in (IBE)) made an indicative offer of €3.60/$5.28 per share. It has not made a firm bid, although (BAB) (CEO), Willie Walsh recently indicated the consortium expected to make a formal proposal by mid-December. The Gala Capital-led consortium "mentions" an indicative price of €3.60 to €3.90 per share, (IBE) said, adding the approach does not constitute a binding offer or a definitive decision about launching a bid. The consortium will take another four weeks to study the deal. The all-Spanish group includes players such as Basque bank (BKK), headed by former (IBE) President, Xabier de Irala, as well as Juan Jose Hidalgo, Executive President of Air Europa (ARE) parent, Globalia. (IBE) held merger discussions with (ARE) in 2000, but they broke off early the following year. Roles now could be reversed, with the smaller carrier possibly buying its larger competitor. In 1993, (ARE) was the 1st privately held airline to operate domestically in Spain, thus putting an end to (IBE)'s monopoly. Former (IBE) (COO), Angel Mullor reportedly is advising.
December 2007: (ILFC) (ILF) announced a leasing deal with Air Europa (ARE) for 2 767-300ERs, powered by (CF6-80C2B7F)s under a lease extended from early next year to spring 2013.
January 2008: Air Europa (ARE), which in December 2004 became the 1st airline to order the original A350, switched to the 787. The carrier announced an order for 8 787-8s worth $1.3 billion at list prices, plus 8 purchase rights. (ARE) never committed to the larger, redesigned, (Trent)-powered A350 XWB, having selected the (GEnx) for its original Airbus (EDS) order. It selected the (Trent 1000) to power its 787s, with an order worth some $560 million, including a TotalCare package, Rolls-Royce (RR) said.
(ARE) already is a large Boeing (TBC) customer with 33 737-800s and 4 767-300s in service. It also flies 3 A330-200s, according to its website. "After further development of the 787 by (TBC), it became clear to our pilots (FC), our fleet planners and our accountants, that the 787 would deliver the best possible economics, while also offering superior satisfaction for our passengers," Managing Director, Maria Jose Hidalgo said.
February 2008: (JJH) Capital, owned by Air Europa (ARE) and Globalia President, Juan Jose Hidalgo, signed a firm order for 6 Embraer E195s plus six purchase rights worth $237 million at list prices.

Aeromexico (AMX) will become the sole USA sales representative next month for SkyTeam (STM) alliance partner Air Europa (ARE). With this strategic alliance, (AMX) will be (ARE)’s sole contact for travel agencies, wholesalers and on-line tour operators. (AMX) will also promote (ARE) in North America under the new arrangement.
Air Europa (ARE) operates nonstop service between its base at Madrid Barajas Airport and New York Kennedy International Airport, a route launched about a year ago, and since March has operated a nonstop to Miami International Airport. This accord coincides with an expansion of (AMX)'s North American schedule, about three months after the collapse of the country’s largest international operator, Mexicana (CMA), significantly reduced capacity to the USA and Canada.
As part of the expansion, Aeromexico (AMX) on November 20 plans to resume operations between Ontario International Airport in California and Guadalajara International Airport with a seasonal daily service, and from December 15 it expects to resume seasonal flights to Denver International Airport from its Mexico City hub. Both of these routes are possible despite the USA (FAA) safety downgrade imposed in July because authority had previously been granted to the airline, confirms the (FAA). The downgrade does not allow Mexican airlines to add new service to the USA until the country’s rating returns to Category 1.
The upgraded schedule also includes increased frequencies for existing USA markets that boost Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, and New York to 2x-daily, and Las Vegas to 2x-daily from Thursday to Sunday. The new frequencies should begin December 6.

Competition on the route comes from Iberia (IBE)’s 35 weekly frequencies, which are operated by Air Nostrum, as well as indirectly from the high-speed (AVE) trains, which cover the 1.5-hour journey 15x-daily.
(ARE) has wet-leased its A330-200 (745, EC-JQG) to Senegal Airlines (SNG) for this year's Hajj charter season. The airplane has returned to (ARE) after performing a series of flights carrying passengers from Dakar Yoff-Léopold Sédar Senghor International (DKR) to Madinah Prince Mohammad bin Abdulaziz (MED) and (ARE) will then operate flights in the other directions after the Hajj.
December 2012: Air Europa (ARE) launched its 5th route from Madrid (MAD) to South America on November 29, and now offers 2x-daily flights to Santa Cruz Viru Viru (VVI). Services on the 8,900 km route to Bolivia’s main airport are operated using the A330-200. Olavi Linkola, (ARE)’s General Manager Bolivia, commented: “Dynamic growth not only in Bolivia but in the region as a whole is not a secret. The new route will help us grow in South America as the economic exchange between Spain and Bolivia increases.” Air Europa (ARE) will face competition on the route when Boliviana de Aviación (LAB) launches its four weekly services on 7 December. In addition, (ARE) commenced flights from the Spanish capital to Brussels (BRU), a route on which its 13x-weekly flights challenge Iberia (IBE)’s 26x- and Brussels Airlines (DAT)/(EBA)’s 11x-weekly frequencies. All operations are carried out using E190s.

October 2013: Air Europa (ARE) has been talking up its ambitions in Latin America. It has firm orders for eight 787 airplanes, but its President, Juan Jose Hidalgo recently said it will eventually have up to 22 of the type by 2020 - 2022. He plans to deploy them on Latin American routes. These could include Mexico City, Bogota, Cartagena, and Quito.
Currently, Iberia (IBE) is the leader on all 3 routes to Latin America, where it competes with Air Europa (ARE) and is number one overall on Spain to LatAm. However, (ARE) has been picking up routes dropped by its larger rival and Mr Hidalgo says it plans “to fly all the destinations that Iberia (IBE) flies to.” The pendulum is swinging towards (ARE) in much of the region outside Central America. Iberia (IBE) has abandoned the Caribbean altogether.
Air Europa (ARE) has a unit cost advantage and ambitions to grow. This poses a credible threat to Iberia (IBE)’s Latin American network. (IBE)’s cost restructuring will have to succeed if it is to avoid a further dulling of its brightest network jewel.

November 2013: AirEuropa (ARE), which poses an increasingly significant threat to Iberia (IBE)’s operation, continued to encroach upon the Spanish carrier’s territory last week with the launch of a new domestic route. On November 4th, (ARE) commenced operations on the 400 km route from Madrid (MAD) to Asturias (OVD) in the north of the country.

The SkyTeam(STM) Alliance member initially plans to operate the weekly route (Saturdays) with its A330-300s, but the service is set to increase to twice-weekly (Mondays) from December 16th, when the operating airplane will become the A330-200. The winter-season only service, which terminates on March 31st 2014, currently has no contention. However, Pullmantur Air (PUL) serves the Dominican Republic airport of Punta Cana from Madrid (weekly).
AirEuropa (ARE) has started its second service to Brazil from Spain’s capital Madrid (MAD), with its 5x-weekly operation to Sao Paulo Guarulhos (GRU) joining its existing service to Salvador in Bahia state. The flights, which began on December 16th, will be operated by the SkyTeam (STM) Alliance carrier’s 299-seat, A330-200s. (ARE) will slug it out against 3 existing airlines plying the route already (namely, Air China (BEJ) (2x-weekly), Iberia (IBE) (12) and (TAM) (TPR) Airlines (daily). The Air China (BEJ) service originates in Beijing, stops in Madrid, before continuing on to Sao Paulo.
(ARE) has confirmed plans to establish a regional hub in Salvador, Brazil from where it will offer connections to São Paulo Guarulhos, Santiago de Chile International, Asuncion and Córdoba International (Argentina) beginning March 2014. The first route to roll out will be Madrid Barajas to Santiago via Salvador on March 31, 2014. The flight will operate on board an A330-200. However, Paraguay's civil aviation authority (Dirección Nacional de Aeronautica Civil - DINAC) has warned that unless the airline operates a direct Madrid - Asuncion flight, it will not be able to benefit from any Paraguayan state subsidies. "If they don't operate direct flights, then they won't be able to access the concessions we are offering, which include tax exemption for a period of two years. For them to access the concessions, they have to operate a direct Madrid to Asuncion flight," (DINAC) President, Luis Aguirre said.
Air Europa (ARE) currently operates 49 airplanes, to 21 countries, 54 destinations, on 101 routes and 164 flights.
January 2014: Etihad Airways (EHD) has signed a code share agreement with Spain's Air Europa (ARE), as (EHD) seeks to expand its European route network. (ARE) will operate three direct flights per week between Abu Dhabi and Madrid later this year.
(EHD) will also fly to Madrid for the first time from Abu Dhabi.
(EHD) will place its "EY" flight code on Air Europa (ARE) flights from Amsterdam, Brussels and Milan Malpensa going to Madrid. In exchange, (ARE) will place its "UX" flight code on (EHD) flights from the same destinations to Abu Dhabi.
Over the summer season, the 2 airlines plan to expand the number of code share destinations to include cities in Spain and South America via Madrid. More cities will be added in the Gulf region, Africa, and Australia via Abu Dhabi.
"(EHD) is targeting partnerships with smaller (EU) airlines that are less competitive to effectively inorganically grow their European footprint," said Saj Ahmad, the Chief Analyst at StrategicAero Research. "It's a smart, non-confrontational expansion policy that's working well for (EHD) and it's bound to reap dividends for them."
(EHD) (CEO) said "We have been keen to offer our customers direct access to the Spanish capital for a number of years, and doing this now in partnership with Air Europa (ARE) makes perfect business sense.
He added that the new route will support the increase in trade volumes between the (UAE) and Spain, which has grown +75% over the past 3 years. The route will also bring more business and leisure travelers to Abu Dhabi from Spain.

June 2014: Air Europa (ARE) has strengthened its growing hub operation at Madrid (MAD) with the addition of a new domestic service to Alicante (ALC), as well as two further international points, namely to Miami (MIA) and Punta Cana (PUJ) in the Dominican Republic.

August 2017: Air Europa (ARE) pilots (FC), represented by the Spanish pilots trade union (SEPLA), have requested layover alternatives on its 3x-weekly Madrid to Caracas services because of safety concerns.
(SEPLA) recommends avoiding overnight crew-stays in Venezuela’s capital of Caracas because of escalating violence.
(ARE) is 1 of the few remaining European carriers that operate to Caracas where the flight crew (FC) stays overnight.
(ARE) uses Airbus A330s on the route.
(SEPLA) said the current situation “puts at risk the security and the physical integrity of the crews (FC) that have to move from the airport to the hotel where they are staying.” For this reason, the labor union is requiring Air Europa (ARE) “to assess the situation and establish measures such as cancellation of flights or other alternatives that guarantee the safety of the crew.”
(SEPLA)’s (ARE) pilots (FC) recommend alternative measures to avoid having to stay overnight in Venezuela, such as transferring to other destinations in the Caribbean, an area where Air Europa (ARE) operates multiple frequencies.
(SEPLA) said these measures have already been adopted by practically all European carriers, such as Iberia (IBE), which takes its crew to Santo Domingo for overnight stops after landing in Caracas.
(ARE) pilots (FC) fear the situation in Venezuela may degenerate into a war-like conflict with airspace closure, which would make it impossible to leave the country in a crisis situation.
