Bring the prestige of Peru to the airport

Andes Airport Services is still called the same, but it is no longer the same Andes Airport Services. In the future, it will be called Talma Ecuador, because the airport services company based in Peru has acquired 100% of Ecuador and has operated since May in seven national airports.
The name change will come later, but the news has not waited. The new general manager of Talma in Ecuador is Vladimir Muños, 40 years old. The former Business Development Manager at Talma Perú moved to Quito with his 18 years of experience in logistics and supply chain, cargo and ramp, air and land transport services, directing projects and business units in Peru and Foreign.
Now big challenges await him in Ecuador to "grow the company through new clients and new businesses". That is the goal of Talma to enter Ecuador, with the acquisition of Andes Airport Services, in an operation whose amount can not be revealed by a confidentiality agreement. The expansion and diversification of businesses now have 30% market share in ramp services nationwide, operating in Quito, Guayaquil, Conta, Manta, Baltra, San Cristóbal and Coca.
"We believe that Ecuador is a market with a lot of potential for growth and Tama has the capacity to meet the needs of the target audiences," says Muñoz. To do this, they currently have 600 employees, of the 5,100 that collaborate in the company between Peru, Ecuador and Mexico. And with an investment of approximately one million dollars a year.
The idea is not to remain alone in the acquired, but to continue the expansion and bring to Ecuador the prestige that has been gaining Talma in the region during the 25 years. "To assume the General Management of Talma in Ecuador is a very important challenge in my career and we have happily started well. Our commitment is not only to maintain the excellent level of service, but to improve it and with that to make the operation grow in Ecuador. "

The corporate goal is to grow 5% per year

Interview with Vladimir Muñoz, new general manager of Andes Airport Services (appointed by Talma after acquiring the company), tells about the new operation and its impact on the group.

How did the purchase of the Ecuadorian Andes Airport Services and how much did it cost?
The goal [of Talma] is to expand in Peru with new businesses and in the region, with the current businesses. The opportunity in Ecuador is presented through a tender launched by the LATAM group, whose subsidiary was Andes. It provided services to other companies, but was concentrated in Latam. By a confidentiality agreement between the two parties, I can not disclose [the cost].
How much will Andes contribute to the growth of Talma?
The corporate goal we have at Talma is to increase sales volume by 5% a year. With this operation we are succeeding.
How much will they invest for it?
From US $ million to US $ 2 million per year.
What is the position of Andes in Ecuador?
In Ecuador there are four ramp operators. Two self-service, Tame [Ecuadorian local airline] and Avianca, and two private, Swissport / Emsa and now Taima. Like Andes, we operate at seven airports - the most important being Quito and Guayaquil - and we have approximately 30% market share [in ramp services in Ecuador].
How did you find Andes at the end of 2016?
Andes revenues are in the range of US $ 12 million to US $ 14 million a year, which is the size of the company.
What new services will be implemented in the Andes?
Aircraft dispatch and passenger handling [counter service]. Regarding the cargo business, it is not planned to implement it yet in Ecuador, at least in the short term. Ecuador is not one of the fastest growing economies.
What is your strategy to grow in the region?
It is true that in recent years [Ecuador] has decreased, but we believe that it is a good time to bet on that economy. It is geographically well located, and therefore [we see] the potential for growth.

Talma extends its operation to Ecuador

Talma, the company of the Sandoval Group, which has specialized in providing airport services, has just completed its entry into Ecuador, the third country where it will operate after Mexico and Peru, after the purchase of Andes Airport Services.

This is highlighted exclusively for Day1 the general manager of Talma, Arturo Cassinelli. "We are closing the acquisition of 100% of ¬ Andes, a firm dedicated to providing ¬ ramp services for airlines at seven Ecuadorian airports," explains the executive.

It adds that these air terminals are located in the cities of Quito, Guayaquil, San Cristobal, the Galápagos Islands, Cuenca, Manta and Coca. With this reach, Andes captures 30% of the market ¬ ramp service in the northern neighbor, which ¬ will pass in favor of Talma.

The purchase, according to Cassinelli, gives another dimension to the Peruvian company, since it makes it an important player on a regional scale, since - as it was said at the beginning of this note - from now on its presence in the Peru, Mexico and Ecuador will enable them to carry out a more aggressive and sustained commercial strategy in order to be able to serve their network customers.


¿Why Ecuador? ­

First, because we find an opportunity to ¬ buy, and secondly, because it is a country neighboring ours and this gives us the opportunity to make some synergies between our operations, summarizes the head of Talma. With this incorporation, it is worth mentioning, the company adds more than five thousand workers: the 600 that work in Ecuador adhere to the 350 of Mexico and the 4,200 of Peru.

The projection that ¬ sketch in Talma is that for 2018 the operation in ¬ Ecuador will increase the ¬ turnover of the firm by 13% at the regional level. In the medium term, thinking about the ¬ next five-year period, our ¬ company will become a multilatina, so ¬ our revenues from abroad will become increasingly important, ¬ points Cassinelli.

In this line, the executive commented that ¬ are also negotiating ¬ incorporate firms from two other countries in the region. "We are now pursuing two ¬ processes now and we hope to be able to finalize them by the end of this year or early next.

Advance in Mexico

The expectations they have in Talma gain strength, after the results of their ¬ incursion in Mexico, the first country they went to, after consolidating in Peru.

According to the company, the operation in the Aztec market grew in such a way that its share of ¬ participation went from 7% to 13% of the cake, that is, an advance of 85% between 2015 and 2016. It Has convinced the firm to invest US $ 2 million to expand the capacity of its warehouses by 50%, which is expected to resume a double-digit growth in its market share for 2018.

This year the share of ¬ Talma will only grow between 6% and the operation in the Aztec country grew in such a way that its market share went from 7% to 13% of the cake between 2015 and 2016.

Sales growth: 2% in 2016

Positive results

Talma's total sales in 2016 grew 2% from its 2015 results, according to Arturo Cassinelli, the company's general manager. Attention to airlines The company provides 65% of the airlines that operate at the Jorge Chávez airport in Lima. Only there has more than 1,000 teams. Investment in technology The company has invested over US $ 2 million in technology for security, cargo and ¬ logistics in favor of its customers. 7%, due to the limited.

Perivian bet

As far as the company's performance in our country is concerned, Arturo Cassinelli states that its ramp service is already reaching the same weight as that of freight - at the level of the 20 airports in which they are operating - while There is a strong bet for its ¬ aircraft maintenance service.

In fact, ¬ recently Talma has obtained the ¬ certification of the American ¬ authority to carry out the maintenance to the ships with plaque of that country, as well ¬ as before has obtained the certifications of the ¬ governments of Chile, Ecuador, ¬ Colombia And Panama, in addition to that of Peru (through the DGAC). The firm works for ¬ airlines such as Copa and Jet Blue.

Is Talma concerned about the problems of infrastructure at the Jorge Chávez (Lima) airports and at Velasco Astete (Cusco)?

Cassinelli explains that the shortcomings of these ¬ terminals will not affect their growth projections in our country in the short term, but that in the medium and long term they do, so they expect to make the necessary improvements. "We believe that, for example, it will speed up construction of the future airport of Chinchero," he says. The firm serves ¬ about 220 aircraft per day in Lima alone.

"With the low cost, flights should grow 6% this year"

Interview with Arturo Cassinelli, CEO of Talma.

"With the low cost, flights should grow 6% this year."

How did Talma close in 2016?

Talma closed stable in 2016. We grew between 2% and 3% in sales, but there was no growth in ¬ utility. Under load, we see volatility in ¬ import. There are months where we have more kilos than the previous year and others where there are less. But at the close of 2016, that import load fell by 2%.

What were the results in 1Q17?

In air import, there has been a fall of 0.5% (in kg). It is a volatile segment: in January grew 2%, in February fell 9% and in March rose 6%. On the other hand, there are interesting numbers in export. We are growing in the accumulated of 2017 compared to 2016: 10%, 23% and 4% between January and March, respectively.

What growth engines do you see for Talma and the commercial airline sector?

For Talma, mainly the operation of ¬ Mexico. There, last year we grew about 13% in international cargo and 50% in market share [which reached 14%]. In Peru, the ramp business [to ¬ transport air cargo] is where we are seeing more dynamism, in export cargo. Now that the low cost lines are in, we believe flights should grow 6% this year. I can not assure it, but there could be some consolidation [among the airlines].

Have you scheduled investments for this year?

At Pisco airport [where they provide logistics services] not only have to put a cold room, but ramp equipment [to transport air cargo]. All this would mean US $ 1.8 million. ¬ In addition, we have S / .16 million in investments, ¬ much in technology. In December, we implemented the biometric recognition system BioTalma, to avoid misplacements. For example, we have ¬ registered the fingerprints of all customers.

They were optimistic about the operation at the Pisco airport, but it still does not take off. What happened?

Pisco Airport is operating with charter flights. There is an airline that on July 5 starts operating with Cusco-Pisco-Cusco and Bogota-Cusco-Pisco-Cusco-Bogota flights. On the one hand, the airport has just been ready last year. The product that comes from lea is the asparagus, whose campaign is between August to December, and not ¬ we get to spliced ​​with this one. We believe that the Pisco project will work, and we hope that we can get out in this next [August] campaign.

How did El Niño affect the export burden?

There was a bump in March because the load of [agroindustrial zone] Chavimochic, as well as Chiclayo and Piura, did not arrive. That is seen in the figures: in January we grew 10% and then, in March, 3%. But the biggest challenge was [the handling of a ¬ greater] domestic load [air], by the interruption of the roads. In March we handled 95,000 kg of daily air cargo in Lima; The usual is 25,000 kg. On July 5, an airline with Cusco-Pisco-Cusco flights begins to operate "

The expansion of Jorge Chavez remains in suspense. Are you planning to unlock this year?

We see the enlargement with great expectation. What we have today is a small infrastructure for a lot of operations: we handle ¬ about 240 commercial daily flights Without a second runway, we have to work ¬ [enable] more areas ¬ attend 35 flights per hour to 45. Do not see A real problem of saturation? Not in the short term. In the medium term, it is looking to increase the platform [space] for aircraft. They will stop providing some services on the platform so that [the released space] becomes an aircraft parking lot.
