The whole report here :
We don't have the passenger numbers for all big the Scandinavian airports yet, but Stockholm Arlanda has released their number and had a growth of 15,1% in January; 10 percentage points higher than Scandinavian Airlines.
Most worrying I think is the Danish domestic segment: -7.6% in January
The question now will be at which point SAS will close down AAL?
I think DY is bleeding more than SAS in Denmark. With 186 seats as the smallest plane type, they will never make money.
Anyways, at least we are heading in the right direction
Scandinavian airports in general probably profited from handling all the re-routes and remaining open during the heavy winter. Or at least they didn't lose as much as the rest of Europe.
I'm not too worried about that. Danish domestic grew extraordinary in 2010, and a decline of 7,6% now isn't that dramatic
CPH had a 10.6% growth in domestic passengers - I would have worried
If you have 100% market share on some routes, the only way is down. Of course, when Norwegian is dumping prices, sales will go up and SAS will loose market share. But in the long run, Norwegian will only have 186 seat planes in their fleet meaning they will never make money on most Danish domestic routes.
And now SAS is at market share at AAL and AAR combined of 35%
But one also have to take into account that many SAS passengers on the AAL route are more than just point to point passengers.Many will be connecting through CPH to other of SAS international flights.
