Dana Dunne, CEO of eDreams Odigeo

“We are pleased with the performance in the first half of the year with solid growth in bookings, revenue margin and Adjusted EBITDA. Our revenue diversification strategy is already yielding benefits, particularly in our non-flight business. As we expected, a combination of price re-orientation and channel mix re-alignment has resulted in slightly slower growth in our flight business. We remain confident in meeting our full-year guidance and believe that our strategic initiatives, which are already having a positive impact on the business, will continue to build a much stronger business.”

He added:

Having completed the first phase of our transformation programme in 2015-16 we are now implementing the second phase of our transformation which focuses on constantly improving the experience for our customers, using scale to improve our products and services to further drive longer term growth.”

​Norwegian er Nordens mest populære lavprisflyselskap

Pressemeldinger   •   okt 07, 2016 16:44 CEST

Det er det nettbaserte reisebyrået Travellink som har gjennomført studien blant europeiske reisende rundt bruk og erfaringer med lavprisflyselskaper. Og det er ingen tvil om at helnorske Norwegian har skaffet seg mange støttespillere både i Norge, Norden og Europa*.

- Norwegian inntar førsteplassen med stor margin både i Norge, Sverige, Danmark og Finland når det gjelder ferie- og fritidsreiser. Tross knallhard konkurranse kaprer de også en meget sterk bronseplass i Europa. I Norge kommer Thomas Cook på andreplass, mens bare 11 % av oss fortrekker Ryanair. For Europa er det selskapet EasyJet som kommer på topp fulgt av Ryanair på andreplass og altså Norwegian på tredjeplass, forteller countrymanager for Travellink i Norge, Hege Bergsløkken.

- For Norwegian er det viktig å tilby god kvalitet til en lav pris. Vi setter stor pris på at våre direkteruter med splitter nye, mer miljøvennlige fly, gratis WiFi og hyggelig service blir godt mottatt av de reisende. Positive tilbakemeldinger fra kundene er svært viktig og motiverer oss til å fortsette å jobbe for at enda flere skal velge Norwegian på neste reise, sier salgsdirektør Lars Sande i Norwegian.

Blant de norske respondentene i undersøkelsen, er det pris som har størst betydning for valg av flyselskap (88 %), mens behagelige flytider ved ut/hjemreise er nest viktigst (64 %). Flyplassens beliggenhet blir rangert som nummer tre på listen (43 %).

- De norske deltagerne i undersøkelsen er overraskende lite opptatt av å få adgang til en lounge på flyplassene. Bare 5,1 prosent svarer at dette er viktig når de skal bestille en feriereise. Heller ikke WiFi eller taxfree-utvalg om bord i flyet teller mye for nordmenn. Bare 3 % svarer at dette er viktig. Med andre ord: For det store flertallet handler det om å få reisen til best mulig pris, forklarer Bergsløkken i Travellink.

Det er også interessant å merke seg at åtte av ti av de norske respondentene har benyttet seg av ulike flyselskaper på ut- og hjemreisen – for å få best mulig pris.

- Dette ser vi tydelig hos oss i Travellink når folk bestiller billetter. Behagelige flytider er viktig, og da hender det ofte at de reisende velger forskjellige flyselskaper på utreisen og hjemreisen, sier Hege Bergsløkken i Travellink.

Men Ola og Kari er ikke udelt positive til lavprisselskapene. Mange mener at disse selskapene vet å ta seg betalt for ekstra-tjenester slik som for eksempel for bagasje. Nesten fire av ti svarer at de synes lavprisselskapene kan være like dyre som full-service-selskapene, særlig i høysesong. Og over tre av ti oppfatter at lavprisselskapene var billigere før.

Nordmenn rangerer lavprisflyselskapene slik, basert på egne erfaringer og kundeservice:

Norwegian 61%

Thomas Cook 19%

Ryanair 11 %

Wizz Air 7%

Easy Jet 6%

Europeere under ett rangerer lavprisselskapene slik:

EasyJet 22 %

Ryanair 18 %

Norwegian 12 %

Vueling 8 %

Eurowings 4 %

*Undersøkelsen ble fortatt blant eDreams/ODIEGOs kunder i juni 2016. 16.743 respondenter fra Storbritannia, Spania, Frankrike, Italia, Tyskland, Portugal, Sverige, Norge, Finland og Danmark svarte på spørsmålene. Av disse var 3975 personer fra de nordiske landene Sverige, Norge, Finland og Danmark. Respondentene ble spurt om å velge sine topp tre lavprisflyselskaper i Europa basert på egne erfaringer og kundeservice.

En studie blant hele 16 743 flypassasjerer i Europa er hyggelig lesning for Bjørn Kjos og Norwegian. Selskapet kommer på en soleklar førsteplass som Norge og Nordens mest populære lavprisflyselskap, og havner på tredjeplass i hele Europa. Men nordmenn irriterer seg over at det ofte påløper ekstra kostnader når de reiser med billig-selskapene.

Business review by geography

Bookings and revenue margin growth in Core and Expansion markets was solid in the first quarter. In Core bookings the growth was driven by solid performance in Spain, Italy and France and in particular the flight business which experienced strong growth rates. In our Expansion markets the increase relates to Germany, as well as the UK and International markets.

Business review by Flight/Non-Flight

Progress in strategic initiatives continued to deliver solid growth in flight bookings and revenue margin, driven by both Core and Expansion markets. Revenue margin in flight experienced solid growth due to continued efforts to improve product, re-orient price and channel performance.

Non-flight business bookings continued to grow, driven by our core markets. Booking growth in most non-flight products, except for packaged tours which continued to decrease.

Non-flight revenue margin grew for the third consecutive quarter. The growth was primarily driven by a 9% increase in revenue margin per booking which itself was driven by development of metasearch, non-transactional revenue and growth in our cars, hotels and dynapacks business.

Outlook

The focus for FY2017 will be on improving the profitability and investing in the long term sustainability of the business.

We aim to invest in areas that reinforce our long term sustainability and are in the best interest of the customer, even if it leads to a trade-off between short term and long term results. We will also reduce areas in which we are not as profitable and are not as strategic to long term success.

On phasing, we expect a strong first half which will underpin most of the growth expected this year and which will allow us to accelerate the investments in the transformation of the business in H2 leading to a lower second half of the year.

The annual targets for fiscal year 2017 are as follows:

  • Bookings:In excess of 10.7 million
  • Revenue margin: In excess of €463 million
    • Adjusted EBITDA: €105 million (+10% growth), +/- €2 million
  • *NOTE

    Core Markets: Spain, Italy, and France

    Expansion Markets: All except the Core Markets

    International Markets: All except the Core Markets, Germany, the United Kingdom, and the Scandinavian countries
