Air Australia a new low cost international airline from Oz

What a great name for the newest low cost airline in the antipodes ! Air Australia is a the new branding for the airine which has up to now been called Strategic Airlines. With new flights from Honolulu to Brisbane and Melbourne starting in December, Air Australia is also planning to serve  the main trunk route from Brisbane to Melbourne domestic as well as Brisbane-Bali and Brisbane and Melbourne to Phuket. Strategic Airlines is a scheduled passenger and charter airline based in Brisbane, Australia and part of the group has two aircraft flying in Europe on charter programmes based around the requirements of UK tour operators. Strategic's background includes a history of moving Australian troops around the world and many short term leases for other airlines. The current state of the Australian Air travel market, with Tiger Airways grounded and Virgin Blue rebranding as Virgin Australia with the declared intention of moving into market space currently occupied by Qantas should mean there is room for Air Australia to expand. We will keep an eye on developments and report back as the story unfolds.

It is happening across the globe from Mature markets to the over-heating economies of BRIC, airline consolidation continues with a major coup for dynamic Brazilian carrier, GOL as it takes over rival WebJet. The deal will push Gol's share of the Brazilian domestic air travel market to over 41% and give the combined airline group a fleet of 140 aircraft - all Boeings. Gol already has the well known Varig brand in its stable and is clearly consolidating its position before the proposed TAM/LAN merger is finalised. Gol is floated on the New York stock Exchange and should have no problem paying the reported $61 Million price tag of WebJet.
