phases from internationalisation to globalisation period
Phases From Internationalisation to Globalisation period
  • In Internationalization period- 1940’s - increase in competition as number of airline increases, thus airlines engage in code sharing strategy
  • In globalisation period - 1980s and early 1990s, partnership among airlines intensified from merely code sharing to cross- equity. In 1997, formal alliance called Star Alliance began.
commercial airline
  • An airline is a company that provides air transport services for travelingpassengers (PASSENGER AIRLINE) and freight (FREIGHT AIRLINE).
  • Airlines lease or own their aircraft with which to supply these services and may form partnerships or alliances with other airlines for mutual benefit.
  • Generally, airline companies are recognized with an air operating certificate or license issued by a governmental aviation body.

Airline Strategic Alliance (ASA)
  • The first airline alliance started in the 1930s, as Panair do Brasil and parent company Pan American World Airways
  • Code sharing- common forms of airline partnership
code sharing
  • When two or more airlines use their own flight codes or a common code on a flight operated by one of them
  • It allows greater access to cities through a given airline's network without having to offer extra flights, and makes connections simpler by allowing single bookings across multiple planes.
  • Most major airlines today have code sharing partnerships with other airlines and code sharing is a key feature of the major airline alliances.

strategic alliances1
Strategic Alliances
  • Strategic alliances are not necessarily involved foreign ownership, example:
  • Air Asia is a Malaysia based company, engaged in alliances by serving their international routes, and these services are operated by Air Asia Thailand, thus foreign equity is involved in Air Asia Berhad.
  • Malaysia Airline is a member of One World but own solely by Malaysian equity.
  • Air Asia and Malaysia Airlines, once wanted to do share swap but finally pull out from getting allined
advantages of asa
Advantages of ASA
  • Entry and exit to a market
  • code-sharing,
  • amalgamation of frequent flyer programs,
  • increased traffic feed,
  • schedule coordination
  • leading to enhanced ‘perceived’ seamlessness air travel
  • elimination of duplication of certain
  • tasks (such as offices),
  • easier access to congested airport gates,
  • technical cooperation,
  • access to established system of travel agents
disadvantage of asa
Disadvantage of ASA
  • Direct reduction of competition and market is moving towards monopoly. When not many airlines serving an airport due to airline partnership, consumers have less choices of schedule and types of airlines. Reduction of airfares, therefore only at minimal.
  • Cross booking issue- Customers booked Airline A, but automatically given to take Airline B to reach their destination.
  • Mutual benefits among partners should be carefully assessed
  • Strategic alliance is an important airline strategy in line with globalisation
  • Advantage to airline operators is larger as compared to customers
  • Mutual benefits among partners should be carefully assessed
