Budget Carriers to Challenge Larger Rivals on Int'l Routes
29 October 2010
Chosun Ilbo

Five years after they burst onto the scene, domestic budget carriers are turning up the heat on larger airlines by launching international flights. Jeju Air, Korea's biggest budget airline, said on Wednesday it plans to start flying between Incheon and Hong Kong, taking on Korean Air currently operating 23 flights and Asiana Airlines 14 on the route. While Jeju Air will offer only three flights per week, it aims to lure passengers with fares at least 30 percent lower than those of its larger rivals. Jin Air on Tuesday launched service from Incheon to Clark in the Philippines, pushing into a route previously served solely by Asiana. A Jin Air spokesperson said that the flights would run at night and early morning to differentiate from Asiana, which flies during the day. The new service is targeted at tourists, especially those on golf trips. Jeju Air also plans to launch flights to Manila on Nov. 24 and Macau on Nov. 29.

In addition, it will find itself going head-to-head with another budget carrier, Air Busan, when they both debut flights between Busan and the Philippine resort city of Cebu on Nov. 25 and Dec. 23, respectively. Foreign budget carriers are fueling the competition. Business Air Thailand has already launched Incheon-Bangkok service, while Malaysia's AirAsia, the region's largest low-cost carrier, will start operations connecting Incheon with Kuala Lumpur next month. By the end of the year, larger airlines and budget carriers are expected to be competing on 10 international routes. In the first nine months of the year, domestic budget carriers transported a combined 632,000 passengers on international routes, accounting for 3.18 percent of the total 19.895 million international passengers. The figure has quadrupled from 0.75 percent last year.

Does anyone know if Air Macau or any airline has any intention of re-starting MFM-MEL? Or any other route once operated by Viva Macau?

Wow! That's a giant drop in pax figures, maybe this is due partly to the demise of ZG?

Macau's airlines have suffered quite a lot lately, and it's not just Viva Macau's demise. Air Macau needed a bailout and their most lucrative routes to connect Taiwanese with mainland China are being challenged by new direct flights. Not sure whether Air Macau has any appetite to expand right now.

MFM operates in one of the most competitive aviation environments in the world. It is nearby to HKG, along with the numerous mainland Chinese airports next door and nearby. That whole Pearl Delta area is essentially one market, with so many options coming through.

As from MFM-MEL, Air Macau would need to get a bigger, longer range aircraft to operate the route, and with the yields well below optimum, I can not see it happening. Macau's strength is Asia, as its centrally located. Australia, or anything outside its immediate region, really are not likely to generate profits. Its all about loss minimisation at the moment, providing seats for people to visit the casinos.

The Taiwan-China market is now not in MFM's favour either, as was stated, so its hard to see where they will turn to generate a significant market.

Airlines raise fees on hike in fuel costs
Created: 2010-11-22
Author:Joyce Pan
Shanghai Daily

AIR China and Air Macau will raise the fuel surcharges from December 1 on routes linking the Chinese mainland and Macau to US$27.50 from US$25 per person to counter rising jet fuel costs.

The rise comes after major airlines, such as Air China, China Eastern Airlines and Hainan Airlines, increased fuel surcharges on domestic routes in late October to 70 yuan (US$10.55) from 40 yuan per passenger for routes longer than 800 kilometers and to 40 yuan for shorter distances from 20 yuan.

Airlines took this action after the National Development and Reform Commission, which controls fuel prices, on October 25 authorized state oil firms to raise factory-gate prices for jet fuel to 5,690 yuan a ton from 5,470 yuan to reflect price gains in global crude markets.

Fuel costs are the biggest component of an airline's expenses, accounting for more than 40 percent of total costs.

Based on their 2009 earnings reports, China Southern Airlines, Air China and China Eastern Airlines consumed 3.31 million tons, 3 million tons and 2.6 million tons of kerosene last year, respectively.

MACAO, Dec. 23 (Xinhua) -- Another 19 Macao students who were stranded at the London Heathrow Airport have flown back to Hong Kong and later returned to Macao on Thursday, the Tourism Crisis Management Office of Macao said.

With assistance and coordination of the government of the Macao Special Administrative Region (SAR) and Cathay Pacific Airways, the second batch of 19 Macao students stranded in London boarded the second extra flight of Cathay Pacific, CX2252, which arrived at the Hong Kong International Airport this morning, and returned to Macao later Thursday, according to the Office.

Meanwhile, the Office assisted another 12 stranded students holding tickets of different airlines to travel on the third additional flight of Cathay Pacific, CX8250, which was expected to arrive in Hong Kong Friday.

Among the remaining 38 students who have registered with the Office, including holders of tickets of Cathay Pacific and other airlines, 32 have already departed the UK or have rebooked other flights with the help of their airlines, three students will make their own travel arrangements while three have decided to stay in the UK, according to the Office.

The Tourism Crisis Management Office also said that there were a total of 127 requests for assistance and 127 inquiries in the course of the past few days concerning the situation in London.

Macau International Airport recorded stable performance in 2010
2011-01-13
Macau Airport Press Release

Macau International Airport (MIA) in 2010 faced a series of challenges in operation, such as the impacts of the fluctuation of oil prices, the political instability of Thailand, the increasing cross-strait direct flight services, and the closing of Viva Macau. Despite of these, MIA still delivered 4,078,836 passengers in 2010. Although the passenger throughputs at MIA were down 4% compared with 2009, the destination passengers, occupying 93% of total passenger volume, rose 3% against 2009 and the mainland visitor number registered a 12% yearly increase. The decrease in passenger throughputs at MIA is due to the increase of cross-strait flight and destination. These result in a sharp decrease by 50% in transit passengers compared with year 2009. MIA handled 52,148 tons cargos as is almost the same compared with 2009, and had 37,148 flight movements with 8.7% decrease year-on-year.

In 2010, MIA was progressive and constant in adjusting the marketing strategy by seeking the new airlines, exploring the new markets, and developing new flight destinations to open the new service to Macau. MIA successfully attracted four new airlines to serve more destinations. The launch by Air China in January connected Macau to Wuhan, Mandala Airlines to serve Jakarta in July; China Eastern Airlines further serves Shanghai and Jin Air to Seoul in December. The existing airlines Cebu Pacific Air also added Tuguegarao and Laoag respectively. Xiamen airlines opened Macau to Jinjiang. The flag carrier Air Macau since last year opened three destinations including Singapore, Ningbo and Hefei. All these efforts made MIA a 3% increase of destination passengers compared with 2009, occupying 93% of MIA’s total passengers. The passenger number of mainland China had a 12% increase comparing with the earlier year. These indicate that MIA has finished its strategic transformation from transit airport to destination airport. MIA’s cargo service quality was also confirmed by industries. MIA was awarded “The Best Emerging Airport” by Cargo news Asia and “2010 Air Cargo - Award of Excellence” by Air Cargo World in 2010.

Looking into 2011, MIA will explore the medium long haul routes including Australia and India. To attract more new airlines and add frequency to those target markets from North Eastern, North western and the mid of China, so that to reinforce the market in South China. MIA will continually support the airlines to add new routes and destinations, improve the seat factor and load factor for the existing aircraft, and build new virtual cargo stations. These focuses will achieve an increase of both passengers and cargo at MIA.

With the gradual recovery of the global economy and the position of Macau as an international travel and leisure center, MIA is constantly following the policy of Macau SAR to strengthen the co-operation with aviation companies and tourist industry to achieve the joint development in exploration of more potential markets. It will make continuous efforts and contributions to the sustainable development of aviation, tourism and the whole economy of Macau.
