AtlasGlobal Ukraine

AtlasJet Ukraine temporarily loses its entire fleet

AtlasJet Ukraine, the airline subsidiary of Turkey’s AtlasGlobal, has suspended all operations after phasing out both of its Airbus A320 aircraft. According to public tracking services, one of them, with registration UR-AJD, was ferried to Toulouse, France on November 28. The other, sporting registration UR-AJC, made its final commercial flight with the Ukrainian carrier on November 1 from Odesa to Istanbul (Turkey), after which it departed for Montpellier, also in France. AtlasJet Ukraine, which has been operating under its parent’s AtlasGlobal brand name, suspended all operations from November 26 until at least mid-December following its Turkish parent announcing a similar decision taken earlier explaining that the measure would “allow for restructuring and to establish new cash resources.” According to Ukrainian regulations, an airline may not hold a valid Air Operator’s Certificate unless it has a minimum of two aircraft in its fleet. Nevertheless, as of December 2, AtlasJet Ukraine remains listed on the national register and its AOC is valid until April 1, 2021. Founded in September 2013, Atlasjet Ukraine has Turkey’s AtlasGlobal as its major shareholder. It made its first commercial flight in June 2015 and has been operating under the AtlasGlobal flag since then, flying from Ukraine to Istanbul, and on to destinations in Europe and Armenia.[...]
The number of passengers served by Ukrainian carriers has almost reached the pre-crisis 2013 levels

Passenger traffic in Ukraine increases 25% in first three quarters of 2016

For the first nine months of 2016, Ukrainian airlines carried 26.7% more passengers than in the same period of last year, coming to a total of 6.195 million, according to data from the State Aviation Administration of Ukraine. The carriers transported 5.607 million passengers on international routes, an increase of 26.6%, while 588,700 passengers travelled domestically, an increase of 27.6% over the 2015 figure. A total of 19 Ukrainian carriers offered services during the first three quarters of 2016. The biggest of these was Ukraine International Airlines (UIA), which grew 22.6%. Also in the top were Azur Air Ukraine, which grew 13%, Windrose Airlines (increase 44.1%), YanAir (growth of 920%), and AtlasJet Ukraine. These airlines together served 93% of the Ukrainian air passenger market. Ukrainian carriers also showed growth in the freight and mail sector, which showed an 18% growth. UIA and Antonov played the biggest roles in this sector. The State Aviation Administration of Ukraine also published the results for all of Ukraine's 19 airports, which showed an increase in passenger traffic, albeit at a slower rate--19.8% (up to 9.652 million passengers). Kyiv's two airports, Boryspil and Zhuliany, managed to increase their passenger traffic by 15.8% and 7.1%, respectively. The greatest increases in this sector were demonstrated by local airports, in particular at Vennitsa, which increased its passenger traffic by 440%, Ivano-Frankivsk, with an increase of 240%, Kryvyi Rih, also by 240%, and Zaporizhia, by 220%. Dnipropetrovsk and Uzhhorod showed a fall in passenger traffic numbers in the first nine months of this year, with a decrease of 68.4% and 16.1%, respectively.

Ukrainian air passenger traffic reaches pre-crisis levels

Passenger traffic carried aboard Ukrainian airlines from January through July of this year increased by 23.2% compared to the same period last year, according to data from the State Aviation Administration of Ukraine. In the first seven months of this year, Ukrainian carriers managed to service 4.267 million passengers, reaching the pre-crisis level of 2013. Out of these, international flights carried more than 3.828 million passengers, a growth of 22.9%. For comparison, the amount of passengers flying aboard Ukrainian airlines for the first six months of the year showed a growth of 19.4% compared to the same period in 2015. According to the State Aviation Administration of Ukraine, the increase was driven largely by the country’s largest airline, Ukraine International Airlines (UIA), which showed a growth of 25.7%. UIA, along with Ukraine’s other large carriers; Azur Air, Windrose Airlines, Yanair, Atlasjet, and Dniproavia, serviced 96% of all passengers carried on Ukrainian airlines. In Q1 2016, the growth was lower; the airlines carried only 11.3% more than the period before. The State Aviation Administration of Ukraine also published results of Ukrainian airports: for the first seven months of this year, passenger traffic through Ukrainian airports grew 15.1%, to 6.782 million. Traffic on international flights grew at the rate of 13.6%, to 5.908 million. In the first half of 2016, the number of passengers traveling through Ukrainian airports increased by 13.1%, showing 5.327 million passengers. At Boryspil airport, in Kyiv, the passenger flow showed record increases for the past four years, 14.0%, to 3.64 million passengers.    [...]
Traffic growth has a positive effect on Boryspil's financial results

Boryspil’s traffic grew 13% in five months

In the first five months of 2016, Ukraine’s largest airport served 12.8% more passengers than for the same period last year: 2.82 million passengers against 2.5 million, respectively. Boryspil’s spokesperson emphasized that the traffic reached its record number in the last three years. Kyiv’s airport managed to increase its operational results by attracting additional transit flows, which became the main development driver in the current complicated economic conditions. The number of travelers that passed through Boryspil doubled compared to the same period last year, reaching 740,000 people. The airport is enhancing passenger experience and increasing its passport control capacities, the Boryspil spokesperson said. Another contributor to traffic growth was the airport’s hub-building strategy, under which Boryspil attracted new airlines. Since the beginning of the year, three carriers—Atlasjet (Turkey), Aegean Airlines (Greece) and Mahan Air (Iran)—included Kyiv in their route networks. Boryspil’s base airline, Ukraine International Airlines, also grew its traffic, which was reflected in the airport’s results. The carrier operated over 120 flights daily. It has not reported its five-months results yet. The new development strategy, which is now bearing its fruit, was launched in 2015. It has had a positive effect on the airport’s financial results as well. For this winter season, which is traditionally a period of loss, the airport crossed the red line for the first time. At the end of the first quarter of 2016, Boryspil’s net profit amounted to 176 million hryvnia, against a loss of 299 million hryvnia last year. The airport’s 2016 revenue is forecast to reach around 1 billion hryvnia. In Q1 this year, Boryspil’s traffic increased 12% to 1.512 million passengers, against 1.348 million last year. At the end of April, the airport served more than 68% of Ukraine’s cumulative air traffic.  [...]
