UK Delta kjøper 49% av Virgin Atlantic

Delta har blitt enige med Singapore Airlines om å kjøpe deres 49% eierandel i Virgin Atlantic. Richard Branson vil fortsatt eie 51% av selskapet.

De planlegger også en transatlatisk joint venture.

http://www.streetinsider.com/Corpora...e/7938367.html

Quote:
Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) and Virgin Atlantic Airways Ltd. have reached an agreement for a new joint venture that will create an expanded trans-Atlantic network and enhance competition between the U.K. and North America, offering greater benefits for customers traveling on those routes.

As part of this joint venture agreement, Delta will invest $360 million in Virgin Atlantic, acquiring a 49 percent stake currently held by Singapore Airlines. Virgin Group and Sir Richard Branson will retain the majority 51 percent stake and Virgin Atlantic Airways will retain its brand and operating certificate.

Ingenting om allianse, men det er i hvertfall et stort setg mot Skyteam

Hva betyr dette for Virgin og Delta? Ser at det vil styrke Delta på US-UK rutene. Men vil det være andre synergier å ta ut? Hvordan vil Delta som medeier skille seg fra SQ?

Det betyr samkjøring av rutenett .. codeshares .. Virgin vil få Delta-feed fra innlandsrutene i US .. sannsynligvis også KL/AF feed samt codeshares i Europa - ihvertfall på sikt. Det er også antydet at KL/AF er ute etter SRB's aksjepost.

Med JV så vil jo de være langt tettere knyttet opp, og det betyr jo at DL får langt flere ruter fra LHR til USA. Akkurat som samarbeidet deres med AF-KLM i dag

Ser at Virgin har søkt om JV med Delta, Alitalia, KLM og Air France på transatlantiske ruter, selv om de inntill videre ikke har søkt om medlemskap i Skyteam

Det har vel aldri vaert noen hemmelighet at Singapore har vaert en vanskelig eier som ikke har bidratt noe som helst til veksten av Virgin Atlantic.

Har stor tro paa at Delta kommer til aa bli en bedre og engasjert eier

Dermed var dealen clearet - både i USA og Europa.

Quote:
Delta Air Lines' bid to buy a 49% stake in and form a joint-venture with London-based Virgin Atlantic has been approved by regulators on both sides of the Atlantic, according to numerous media reports Thursday afternoon.

The U.S. Justice Department's antitrust division said it had ended its investigation of the deal and would allow it to proceed, Bloomberg News reports.
