British Airways will keep full ownership of its OpenSkies subsidiary, which launched last year and currently operates between Paris Orly and New York JFK and Newark. It abandoned Amsterdam-JFK service in August, which raised questions about the all-business-class carrier's viability (ATWOnline, July 28). In July, BA appointed Reynolds Partners to assess options for the loss-making startup, including selling part or all to external investors. BA received five bids from European and US private equity firms, OpenSkies MD Dale Moss told The Wall Street Journal. Its load factor currently averages 74%, up 4 points from August. "We have no plans to sell OpenSkies or seek third-party investment in the airline," BA said in a statement cited by Reuters. "We are reviewing all aspects of our business in the current economic climate, including our subsidiary OpenSkies. OpenSkies is a high-quality premium airline that remains of strategic and financial value to us. Its Paris-New York flights are performing well despite the current economic environment, and customer feedback is very positive."
Separately, BA said that Iberia MD and COO Rafael Sanchez-Lozano joined the board as a nonexecutive director. The merger agreement between the airlines gave IB the right to nominate a director to the BA board (ATWOnline, Nov. 13).
BA n'envisage pas de se séparer d'Openskies pour le moment.
