Australia's Alliance Air launches E190 commercial ops
Alliance Airlines Embraer E190 Alliance Airlines Embraer E190 © Alliance Airlines (Facebook)

Alliance Airlines (QQ, Brisbane Int'l) on April 10 launches commercial service with its recently acquired ERJ 190-100AR fleet based out of Adelaide and Darwin.

In an Australian Stock Exchange filing, the regional carrier, previously an all Fokker Aircraft operator, announced it had received regulatory approval and a revised Air Operator's Certificate (AOC) from the country’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) on March 31 to commence commercial operations with its E190 fleet. This followed “an intense six-month programme of aircraft and spare parts acquisition, maintenance, training, and regulatory and compliance checks,” it said.

Alliance Air Chief Executive Officer Lee Schofield confirmed the operating base for these aircraft would be Adelaide and Darwin. Three aircraft would be wet-leased to Qantas (QF, Sydney Kingsford Smith) from May 25, 2021, on a previously-announced three-year wet-lease contract. These aircraft will also be based in Adelaide and Darwin.

Alliance has firm purchase commitments for the delivery of thirty E190s to be used to expand the airline’s operations. So far, 18 aircraft have been paid for and delivered to Alliance. The balance of 12 aircraft would be delivered progressively through to November 2021. Fourteen of the E190s have been acquired from Azorra Aviation and sixteen from Jetran, both US-based lessors, the airline revealed previously.

The status of those delivered are as follows: Five have been delivered to Australia; three are receiving base maintenance overseas; and 10 are in storage pending base maintenance.

The company’s full flight simulator is scheduled to be available for training in early May with pilots currently being trained with Finnair (AY, Helsinki Vantaa) in Helsinki.

The carrier said its fleet of twenty-seven Fokker 100s, five Fokker 50s, and fourteen Fokker 70s is used across fly-in- fly-out (FIFO), charter, and wet-lease operations.

More use for E-Jets

Final approval for Virgin–Alliance collaboration on 41 routes

The ACCC has granted final permission for Virgin and Alliance to collaborate on 41 regional routes until 31 March 2023.

Australia’s competition commission had earlier granted interim authorisation in November despite fierce opposition from Rex.

The deal will allow Virgin to share information on cost, capacity, and flight schedules with Alliance in order to help serve smaller towns with its post-administration, stripped-back fleet, arguing that ceding market share to Qantas could result in more expensive fares for passengers.

The 41 routes included services to regional towns from Brisbane, Alice Springs, Perth and Cairns. The full list is at the bottom of this article.

In its initial ruling published in November, the ACCC said, “The co-operation will allow Virgin Australia and Alliance Airlines to share information, and to agree on service capacity, schedules and potentially revenue sharing on the routes on which they operate, including for new routes not currently serviced by either airline.

“The co-operation will mean that Virgin Australia and Alliance Airlines will not compete with each other on the routes covered by the agreement.

“Our preliminary view is that any public detriment resulting from reduced competition between Alliance Airlines and Virgin Australia is likely to be limited, given Alliance Airlines’ limited number of scheduled regular passenger services. We will consider this issue further in the course of our review of the substantive application.

Got to love it, Qantas owns a portion of Alliance, so essentially Virgin is paying Qantas a small fortune!
