What routes are they going to be used for?

lloyd fox 29th October 2020 08:34 AM

From the articles i have read mainly fifo routes seems to be the suggestion.

I would also suggest that possibly regional routes that VA cannot fly .

The ACCC have received in the last day or so a new agreement request with Virgin and Alliance for greater co-operation.

The E190 is TRW-BNE today.

Brian Wilkes 29th October 2020 11:04 AM

Thanks Lloyd.

Lloyd, I wonder (couldn't tell from your images) if the US reg were stickers which could be torn off to reveal the OZ reg.

The ones under the wings may cover the Aust. Reg.

Robert.M 2nd November 2020 12:26 PM

This would explain why US reg lack rego on the wing.

Quote:

Until December 31, 1960, the required location for display of nationality and identification marks for fixed- wing aircraft was the wing surfaces, and the vertical surface of either the tail or fuselage. Effective January 1, 1960, all fixed-wing aircraft were required to display identification marks on the vertical surfaces or either the tail or fuselage. Wing surface markings were no longer required.

From QQ facebook page

Just like VH-UYZ (below) each of our 14 new Embraer’s will be registered VH – UY[ ].
These registrations are very special to Alliance in two ways.
1. The call sign our pilots proudly use on each and every flight is UNITY.
2. Between January 1929 and February 1938 all Australian aircraft were registered VH – U[ ][ ] using the last two letters of the previous British G – AU registration. For example Smithy’s famous Southern Cross G – AUSU became VH – USU.

lloyd fox 3rd November 2020 10:39 AM

Sorry Greg i have been away and out of comms the past few days.I also don't know if they are stickers or not Greg.

Alliance Aviation signs for another 16 E190s

Alliance Aviation has signed for 16 Embraer 190 aircraft and one spare GE Aviation CF34 engine from US-based Jetran LLC in a A$85 million ($65 million) deal, marking the completion of its short-term fleet expansion plans.

The operator plans to fund the transaction through a mixture of existing cash facilities, operating cash flows and debt, it said today in a disclosure to the Australian Securities Exchange.

Alliance Aviation first announced its acquisition of Embraer E190s in August.

“Alliance has again taken advantage of its strong financial position and current market conditions to acquire these quality aircraft at compelling value,” managing director Scott McMillan states.

“The 100-seat jet aircraft market globally will rebound quickly as carriers look to focus on total trip costs rather than traditional metrics.”

According to Alliance, the aircraft were previously operated by American Airlines and are configured with 99 seats across two classes. Alliance will receive these over an 11-month period, starting with five this month and one a month until November 2021.

“This additional capacity will be deployed to capture several growth opportunities across Australia including contract flying and wet- and dry-lease operations,” Alliance states.

Alliance announced on 3 August that it was acquiring 14 E190s from US-based lessor Azorra Aviation, along with six spare CF34 engines. The agreement, which includes options to acquire another five E190s, as well as a full flight simulator and other training equipment, was valued at $79.4 million.

The aircraft from Azorra were due to deliver progressively over eight months commencing September 2020.

McMillan states in the 18 December disclosure: “This transaction completes Alliance’s short-term fleet expansion strategy and while the Azzora transaction included options for five additional aircraft, these options will now not be exercised.”

Alliance further states that the E190 simulator in the Azzora transaction is currently in transit to Brisbane and will be utilised for most of the initial and all recurrent pilot training.

Total of 30 E190's

James Smith 19th December 2020 10:31 AM

Alliance Airlines has ordered 16 additional E190s.

Quote:

Alliance Airlines will bolster its fledgling jet fleet with the purchase of 16 Embraer E190s, on top of the 14 already ordered from Copa Airlines.

The E190s, previously flown by American Airlines and retired in April this year, have been snared in an $85 million deal which also includes one spare engine.

Alliance will take delivery of the first five jets this month, and then one per month will be handed over across January to November 2021.

The E190s will arrive in American's 99-seat configuration of

8 business class seats (in a 2-1 arrangement) with 36" pitch
4 extra-legroom economy seats (at the exit row) with 34" pitch
80 economy seats with 31-32" pitch
That makes the price for each aircraft less than $6 million.

ASX RELEASE

ASX: AQZ


Alliance Aviation Services Limited further expands the fleet with the acquisition of an additional 16 Embraer E190 aircraft

Alliance Aviation Services Limited (“Alliance”) has today entered into an agreement with Jetran LLC, of the United States, to further expand its fleet through the purchase of 16 additional Embraer E190 aircraft and one spare General Electric CF34 engine.

The total acquisition price for the package is AUD85 million which will be funded through a mixture of existing cash facilities, operating cash flows and debt.

“Alliance has again taken advantage of its strong financial position and current market conditions to acquire these quality aircraft at compelling value. The 100 seat jet aircraft market globally will rebound quickly as carriers look to focus on total trip costs rather than traditional metrics,” said Managing Director, Scott McMillan.

The aircraft were previously operated by American Airlines and are in a 99 seat two-class cabin configuration and will deliver to Alliance over an eleven-month period beginning with five aircraft in December 2020 and then one a month until November 2021.

This additional capacity will be deployed to capture several growth opportunities across Australia including contract flying and wet and dry lease operations.

“The acquisition of these 16 aircraft is in addition to the previously disclosed acquisition of 14 E190 aircraft from Azzora Aviation. This transaction completes Alliance’s short-term fleet expansion strategy and while the Azzora transaction included options for five additional aircraft, these options will now not be exercised.” he said.
The E190 simulator purchased as part of the Azzora E190 transaction is currently in transit to Brisbane and will be utilised for most of the initial and all recurrent pilot training.

Alliance expects that the E190 will be added to its CASA Air Operator’s Certificate during March 2021. There is forecast to be no material impact on the FY21 financial performance as a result of this acquisition, with the full year impact of the transaction expected in FY23.

Alliance will be releasing its half year results on Wednesday, 10thFebruary 2021.
