Lufthansa: Airlines' inclusion in EU ETS in danger of becoming 'fiasco'

Lufthansa said that "too many problems remain unresolved" regarding implementation of airlines' inclusion in the EU Emissions Trading Scheme, leaving open the prospect that the initiative will become a "fiasco" when it goes into effect at the beginning of next year (ATW Daily News, Oct. 12, 2010).

"All of the scheduled deadlines have so far been missed and numerous legal and technical questions remain unanswered—just as 2012 tickets are beginning to go on sale and only eight months before the 'official kick-off'," LH stated in its latest "policy brief" issued Monday. "The aviation industry therefore still has no way of knowing what the major economic parameters will be."

The EU directive mandating airlines' inclusion in the ETS was supposed to be enacted into law by each of the body's member nations by February 2010 (ATW Daily News, Nov. 25, 2010). "Yet most governments have so far failed to do so owing to the complexity of including the international transport sector in emissions trading," LH pointed out. "It certainly cannot be said that the directive is being implemented in a uniform manner which preserves competition."

One major problem, LH contended, is that emission allowances (ATW Daily News, March 8) are based on 2010 traffic figures. "However, that year was marked by airspace closures due to the volcanic eruption in Iceland. The result will be significant distortions in the allocation process," the airline stated. "The European Commission must urgently abandon this benchmark and present a fair solution once and for all."

The issues surrounding the ETS "are exacerbated by the continued lack of clarity" on whether it is legal to impose the scheme on non-EU carriers (ATW Daily News, March 22), LH asserted, adding, "Numerous non-EU states have announced that they will withdraw from the emissions trading scheme and it is still not known how the EU will deal with these [attempts to reject the ETS]. The European Commission is considering simply revoking the traffic rights of airlines, a highly dubious move."

Lufthansa MRO and IT subsidiaries post earnings drops

Despite overall strong earnings growth for the Lufthansa Group in 2010 (ATW Daily News, March 18), Lufthansa Technik and Lufthansa Systems both reported declines in operating result for the year. LHT’s €268 million ($188.5 million) operating profit marked a 19% drop from €331 million earned in 2010. The MRO unit's annual revenue lifted 1.4% to €2.4 billion, but "we were as expected unable to repeat" 2009's operating performance, said LHT Executive Board Chairman August Wilhelm Henningsen, citing pricing pressure and customers postponing or canceling planned maintenance work.

LHT CFO Peter Jansen noted, "MRO businesses are late indicators in the aviation industry and as such Lufthansa Technik's revenue initially declined in 2010. But during the second half of the year it rose to exceed the previous year's levels. However, some customer revenue was lost as a result of the [global financial] crisis and that led to shortfalls in our result."

Regarding pricing, Henningsen told ATW in Hamburg, "We can only make a profit … at any of our locations if we produce at a competitive cost-per-item. The market remains competitive."

He said subsidiaries in Budapest, Manila and Sophia help LHT to operate more cost effectively, but keeping costs low has "challenged us for 20 years," Henningsen said. "If you do MRO work on an engine, 75% of your costs are based on material, 25% on man hours. On an aircraft frame, up to 85% [of costs are] man hours. That's why we have subsidiaries in" lower cost regions.

He continued, "This is one reason why we are expanding our facility in Sophia with [an investment of] €10 million [to] double our MRO lines to four." The expanded LHT Sophia facility should be operational in two years. It performs MRO work on Airbus A320s and Boeing 737s.

Separately, Lufthansa Systems cited "a difficult economic environment and significant one-off costs" for a 37.5% decline in operating result to €10 million ($14.2 million) in 2010 compared to 2009. Revenue fell 1.7% to €595 million while revenue from external customers declined 4.9% to €232 million.

"Given our customers' reluctance to make investments, we can be satisfied with this result," CEO Stefan Hansen stated, adding, "Yet it also documents the fact that we must take strong measures to ensure that Lufthansa Systems can continue to develop and safeguard its leading position in the market."

LHS launched a cost-cutting and business realignment program in the second half of 2010. Dubbed "Jetzt!" ("Now!"), it aims to trim annual expenses by €25 million and generate an equal amount of additional revenue by June 30. Also, the company is being reorganized into three profit centers "oriented on its customer groups."

LHS expects revenues to decline again this year as it "migrates to new technologies, which are more cost-efficient for its customers. Additionally, some contracts will be terminated as [LHS] adjusts its portfolio." However, benefits from the Jetzt! program are expected to result in an earnings turnaround in 2011.

"By realigning Lufthansa Systems, we want to further improve our ability to support our customers in dealing with the challenges of their markets," Hansen said.
