  • British Airways pushes ahead with UK operations reorganisation

    News | 05 Nov 2002 00:00

    <p>MAX KINGSLEY-JONES / BIRMINGHAM</p> <p>British Airways has partly completed the reorganisation of its UK operations, involving the merger of regional divisions under the CitiExpress brand and the reallocation of aircraft between Birmingham, London Gatwick and Manchester. </p> <p>The move, which is key to the airline's Future Size and Shape review, is due to be completed by the start of its 2003 summer schedules at the end of March. Recently acquired British Regional Airlines (BRAL) has been merged with its wholly owned Brymon Airways arm, which forms the basis of the CitiExpress operation.</p> <p>The other element of the reorganisation is restructuring the BA Regional (BAR) operations at Birmingham and Manchester. These are being brought into the CitiExpress grouping, while ex-BAR Airbus A319s and Boeing 737s are being redeployed to the London airports with BA mainline and replaced by smaller, 110-seat, ex-CityFlyer Express BAE Systems Avro RJ100s which are transferring to the UKhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/British-Airways-pushes-ahead-with-UK-operations-reorganisation-157140/
  • Identity crisis

    <p>JUSTIN WASTNAGE / LONDON &amp; CHRISTINA MACKENZIE / PARIS</p> <p>Niche route pioneers, low-cost operators or appendages of mainline carriers, Europe's regional airlines are at a crossroads</p> <p>Exactly what is a regional airline? That is likely to be one of the questions members of the European Regions Airline Association (ERA) will be asking themselves as they gather this week for their general assembly in Salzburg, Austria. To join the ERA, you once had to operate aircraft with fewer than 100 seats. Then the net was extended to include airlines operating chiefly between secondary airports.</p> <p>Now aggressive competition from low-cost carriers has led to the association changing the criterion for its 81 members to include all "short-haul airlines". There are reasons for this identity crisis. While the economic downturn has not affected European regionals as badly as their flag carrier counterparts, which depend for a large chunk of their revenue on the North Atlantic markehttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Identity-crisis-155607/
