Interesada en adquisición de aerolínea croata

Aegean Airlines ha reafirmado su interés en adquirir la compañía Croatia Airlines esta semana. Esto se produce en medio de la aerolínea griega en mostrar interés en varias aerolíneas de la región. Se han producido conversaciones previas de adquisición entre Aegean y el gobierno croata, pero no han sido concluyentes. La aerolínea griega compartió recientemente sus planes para adquirir aerolíneas adicionales en el sudeste de Europa con el fin de fortalecer las alianzas en el mercado balcánico europeo.

El interés por parte de Aegean Airlines en Croatia Airlines se remonta desde 2015, cuando se iniciaron conversaciones sobre la adquisición accionaria al Gobierno de la República de Croacia, mientras sobrevolaba la privatización de la compañía aérea croata.

Como miembro de la Unión Europea, la nación puede vender una participación mayoritaria de su compañía aérea nacional. Antes de la pandemia de Coronavirus, Aegean había presentado una Oferta No Vinculante por el transportista. El siguiente paso en el proceso de adquisición fue la celebración de conversaciones entre la alta dirección de Aegean y el Gobierno croata. Cuando la pandemia detuvo los viajes aéreos, las conversaciones se cancelaron. El Primer Ministro croata, Andrej Plenković, compartió que estas conversaciones se reprogramarían. Actualmente, no hay conversaciones programadas, sin embargo, Aegean ha compartido que tiene la intención de fortalecer sus lazos con Croatia Airlines. Ambas aerolíneas son miembros de Star Alliance, lo que permitirá conservar las esperanzas para continuar aliadas estratégicamente, mientras en el futuro podrían avanzar en la línea de adquisición.

Simetrías vs asimetrías

Ambas aerolíneas comparten similitudes entre ellas como pertenecer a la misma alianza de aerolíneas, Star Alliance, poseer una flota similar de aeronaves de la familia A320, lo que beneficiaría a las tripulaciones, mecánicos, técnicos en una reducción de los costes operativos. Sin embargo, los desempeños de mercado de las dos aerolíneas han sido marcadamente diferentes. Aegean Airlines informa haberse recuperado por completo de la pandemia y anticipa terminar 2022 en un estado rentable. Mientrs que Croatia Airlines siempre ha sufrido altibajos económicos. El Ministro croata de Mar, Transporte e Infraestructura, Oleg Butković, ha expresado: “Croatia Airlines tuvo problemas incluso antes de Covid. Previo a la emergencia sanitaria, la aerolínea estaba en las etapas finales de asegurar un socio estratégico. Teníamos dos ofertas muy serias, pero la pandemia paralizó todas las actividades. Esperamos que con el regreso a la normalidad, el negocio de Croatia Airlines se estabilice, pero no en su totalidad. El reto sigue siendo encontrar un socio estratégico. Si no lo conseguimos, el Estado será el responsable”.

En el caso de Aegean Airlines se ha recuperado completamente de la crisis de los viajes producto de la pandemia y goza económicamente de mejor salud financiera para poder continuar expandiéndose con miras a adquirir Croatia Airlines.

Aegean seeks to acquire Croatia Airlines

Interested in acquisition of Croatian airline

Aegean Airlines has reaffirmed its interest in acquiring Croatia Airlines this week. This comes amid the Greek airline showing interest in several airlines in the region. Previous takeover talks have taken place between Aegean and the Croatian government, but have been inconclusive. The Greek airline recently shared its plans to acquire additional airlines in South East Europe in order to strengthen alliances in the Balkan European market.

The interest of Aegean Airlines in Croatia Airlines dates back to 2015, when talks about the share acquisition began with the Government of the Republic of Croatia, while flying over the privatization of the Croatian airline.

As a member of the European Union, the nation can sell a majority stake in its national airline. Prior to the Coronavirus pandemic, Aegean had submitted a Non-Binding Offer for the carrier. The next step in the acquisition process was discussions between Aegean senior management and the Croatian government. When the pandemic brought air travel to a halt, the talks were called off. Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenković shared that these talks would be rescheduled. Currently, there are no talks scheduled, however, Aegean has shared that it intends to strengthen its ties with Croatia Airlines. Both airlines are members of the Star Alliance, which will allow them to maintain hopes of continuing strategic alliances, while in the future they could advance in the line of acquisition.

Symmetries vs asymmetries

Both airlines share similarities between them such as belonging to the same airline alliance, Star Alliance, having a similar fleet of A320 family aircraft, which would benefit the crews, mechanics, technicians in reducing operating costs. However, the market performances of the two airlines have been markedly different. Aegean Airlines reports having fully recovered from the pandemic and anticipates finishing 2022 in a profitable state. While Croatia Airlines has always suffered economic ups and downs. The Croatian Minister of Sea, Transport and Infrastructure, Oleg Butković, has expressed: “Croatia Airlines had problems even before Covid. Prior to the health emergency, the airline was in the final stages of securing a strategic partner. We had two very serious offers, but the pandemic paralyzed all activities. We hope that with the return to normality, the business of Croatia Airlines will stabilize, but not in its entirety. The challenge remains to find a strategic partner. If we do not succeed, the State will be responsible”.

In the case of Aegean Airlines, it has fully recovered from the travel crisis caused by the pandemic and is economically in better financial health to be able to continue expanding with a view to acquiring Croatia Airlines.

Aegean želi preuzeti Croatia Airlines

Zainteresiran za akviziciju hrvatskog zrakoplovnog prijevoznika

Aegean Airlines ovog je tjedna ponovno potvrdio interes za preuzimanje Croatia Airlines. Ovo dolazi u trenutku kada grčki zračni prijevoznik pokazuje interes za nekoliko zračnih prijevoznika u regiji. Prethodni razgovori o preuzimanju vođeni su između Aegeana i hrvatske vlade, ali su bili neuspješni. Grčki zračni prijevoznik nedavno je podijelio svoje planove za preuzimanje dodatnih zračnih prijevoznika u jugoistočnoj Europi kako bi ojačao saveze na europskom tržištu Balkana.

Interes Aegean Airlinesa za Croatia Airlinesa datira još od 2015 godine, kada su počeli razgovori o kupovini udjela s Vladom Republike Hrvatske, dok se prelijetala privatizacija hrvatskog avioprijevoznika.

Kao članica Europske unije, nacija može prodati većinski udio u svom nacionalnom zračnom prijevozniku. Prije pandemije koronavirusa, Aegean je dostavio neobvezujuću ponudu za prijevoznika. Sljedeći korak u procesu akvizicije bili su razgovori između višeg rukovodstva Aegeana i hrvatske vlade. Kad je pandemija zaustavila zračni promet, pregovori su prekinuti. Hrvatski premijer Andrej Plenković rekao je da će ti razgovori biti odgođeni. Trenutačno nema zakazanih pregovora, no Aegean je rekao da namjerava ojačati svoje veze s Croatia Airlinesa. Oba zračna prijevoznika članovi su Star Alliancea, što će im omogućiti da zadrže nade u nastavak strateških saveza, dok bi u budućnosti mogli napredovati u liniji akvizicija.

Simetrije vs asimetrije

Oba zračna prijevoznika dijele sličnosti među sobom poput pripadnosti istoj alijansi zračnih prijevoznika, Star Alliance, sličnoj floti zrakoplova obitelji A320, što bi koristilo posadama, mehaničarima i tehničarima u smanjenju operativnih troškova. Međutim, tržišne izvedbe dviju zrakoplovnih kompanija znatno su se razlikovale. Aegean Airlinesa izvješćuje da se u potpunosti oporavio od pandemije i očekuje da će 2022. završiti u profitabilnom stanju. Dok je Croatia Airlines uvijek trpjela ekonomske uspone i padove. Hrvatski ministar mora, prometa i infrastrukture Oleg Butković izjavio je: “Croatia Airlines je imao problema i prije Covida. Prije hitnog zdravstvenog stanja, zrakoplovni prijevoznik bio je u završnoj fazi pronalaženja strateškog partnera. Imali smo dvije vrlo ozbiljne ponude, ali je pandemija paralizirala sve aktivnosti. Nadamo se da će se povratkom u normalu poslovanje Croatia Airlinesa stabilizirati, ali ne u cijelosti. Ostaje izazov pronaći strateškog partnera. Ako ne uspijemo, država će biti odgovorna”.

U slučaju Aegean Airlinesa, on se u potpunosti oporavio od turističke krize izazvane pandemijom i ekonomski je boljeg financijskog zdravlja kako bi se mogao nastaviti širiti s ciljem akvizicije Croatia Airlinesa.
