Lucky Virgin Blue on a roll with Macau-China flights
Steve Creedy
26 January 2005
The Australian

VIRGIN Blue is believed to be on the verge of unveiling an agreement that will give it access to the lucrative Chinese market through a deal in Macau.

Macau International Airport executive director John Chan Wai Leong said last night a deal with a low-cost carrier was expected within 30 days, with flights to the territory due to start by the end of the year.

Mr Leong would not name the carrier but said it was "a proven carrier, not a fly-by-night operator". "It's got a good track record."

Sources said they believed Virgin Blue had already signed an in-principle agreement and was waiting for paperwork to be done before making an announcement.

Rumours have been circulating for months that Virgin Blue wanted to form a joint venture with Air Macau to service routes between the gambling centre and China.

That airport looks pretty empty... I hope the Pearl River Delta can work together and find a solution to the problem of having too many international airports...

Macau International Airport is awarded "CAPA Asia Pacific Airport of the Year, 2004 "

Macau International Airport was awarded the "CAPA Asia Pacific Airport of the Year, 2004" for its excellent performance and achievement in the past year.

The CAPA Awards for Excellence in Asian Aviation 2004 hosted by the Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation (CAPA) took place in Singapore on 24th January 2005. Mr. Chan Wai Leong, Executive Director of Macau International Airport Company Limited was representing the company to receive the award.

The awards are made on the basis of strategic leadership and of value to the industry. Macau International Airport was awarded this prize for "undertaking aggressive marketing to reposition the airport effectively, despite strong local competition, and establishing itself as the most attractive LCC airport in the region, with the first north Asian low cost airline operations". As a consequence, Macau International Airport is now regarded as an attractive base for Low Cost Carriers and appears likely to prosper.

The judging panel is formed by management of the Centre, highlighting its Advisory Board of industry specialists, including for example, former Chief Executive Officer of airlines. Last year´s award went to Singapore Changi Airport for its leadership and initiative in ensuring a speedy turnaround from the devastating effects of SARS.

While receiving the award, Mr. Chan remarked "It wasn´t only the aggressive marketing strategy that the Macau International Airport Co. Ltd. put through, but that we have demonstrated our teamwork and spirit when undertaking the Company´s strategy, with the support from the industry members as well as from our sub-concessionaires at the MIA.

2005 is full of challenges ahead and the Macau International Airport will continue to strive to allow the airlines to be more aware of Macau´s open skies and professional operating environment, attracting more airlines to use MIA as well as strengthening Macau´s role as an international tourism city".

Bad weather and pollution force airline to alter Macau schedule

HONG KONG, Feb 8 (AFP) - Budget airline AirAsia said Tuesday it has rescheduled its flights to Macau due to poor weather and pollution.

It said planes will now fly in and out of the southern Chinese autonomous region early in the morning instead of late in the evening.

The decision was made after two flights, on February 4 and 5, were forced to land in nearby Hong Kong because of poor visibility over Macau, the Malaysia-based carrier said.

"This temporary change in flight schedule is implemented due to current weather conditions in Macau causing visibility to drop, resulting in inability to land," a statement said.

The former Portuguese territory has been shrouded in a thick cloud of fog and smog for days.

"The airline has been advised by the Macau Meteorological Department that this trend in weather conditions may continue until May," the statement said.

AirAsia, launched in December 2001 with just two aircraft, has 26 Boeing 737s which will be phased out as Airbus replacements arrive.

I thought this airport would not survive (economically) after HKIA new airport and upgrades at other nearby airports. Im guessing it acts as a cargo airport?!

Macau is heavily dependent on Taiwan transit passengers. It is now an emerging hub for low-cost carriers. With many casinos slated to open, I expect air traffic from the mainland to substantially increase.

Macau gains China rights
Mark Pilling
01 January 2005
Flight International

A new air services pact has been agreed between China and its Special Administrative Region of Macau allowing a second airline to operate from each side.

Most observers expect this will be a new low-cost carrier part-owned by Australia's Virgin Blue. The agreement was negotiated late in November. Macau's civil aviation authority says the new memorandum of understanding "greatly enhances the liberalisation of the air transport market between the two places".

It says the number of destinations included in the agreement has been increased to 37 from 31, while the number of allowable passenger and cargo combination services has been increased by 82%, to 539 weekly flights. The number of allowable all-cargo services has been doubled, to 50 from 25 a week.

Perhaps most importantly, the new agreement allows each regulatory authority to designate two airlines to operate between the two sides, up from one. Until the summer schedule of 2006, however, only one airline from each side can be designated for Beijing, Guangzhou and Shanghai, although after that time "all designated airlines are allowed to operate services to all destinations".

Codesharing is also allowed, although not with third-country airlines. Macau became a Special Administrative Region of China late in 1999, but it maintains authority to negotiate its own air services agreements. "The arrangement has put into consideration the potential development of the Macau aviation industry under the present environment and paved the way for big expansion in the future," says Macau's government of the new agreement.

Macau has only one fixed-wing passenger airline, Air Macau, but that carrier has been in talks for months with Australia's Virgin Blue and other potential partners on the establishment of a low-cost airline focusing on the China market. The carrier also plans a major expansion of its cargo fleet. Macau itself is growing in popularity as a leisure destination. Its airport is keen to attract new business from low-cost carriers.

Macao Intl Airport Jan 2005 Cargo Traffic Up 68 Pct Y/Y
02 February 2005
Portuguese News Digest

Cargo traffic at Macao's International Airport Taipa rose by 68 pct year-on-year in January 2005 to a total 17,617 tonnes, data from the airport's authorities ADA, controlled by Portuguese airport operator ANA-Aeroportos de Portugal, showed on February 2, 2005.

The airport ended 2004 with 221,000 tonnes of cargo traffic, up 56 pct year-on-year. The average monthly cargo traffic in 2004 stood at 18,417 tonnes.

The number of passengers at the international airport in Macao remained unchanged at 289,701 in January 2005 compared to the same month of 2004.

The postal traffic at the airport surged by 147 pct to some 18 tonnes in January 2005, after the fall registered for the full 2004. No comparative figures were available.

Macao's International Airport was officially opened on December 8, 1995. Macao's flag carrier Air Macau accounts for close to half of the total airport traffic. Air Macau operates flights connecting China with Taiwan.

ADA has earlier announced it planned to invest an undisclosed sum in various reconstruction and modernisation projects in 2005, aimed at improving the airport's capacity.

Orient Thai skipping enclave for time being
Zach Coleman
18 March 2005
The Standard

Orient Thai Airlines has no plans to start services to Macau for the time being despiteits successful campaign last year for the right to fly to the SAR.

"We're not in a hurry," said Udom Tantiprasongchai, the carrier's managingdirector and chief executive. "Demandis very poor."

Udom last year sought to make Macau the first overseas destination for Orient Thai's discount arm, One-Two-Go. But because rival budget carrier AirAsia had started its own Bangkok-Macau flights, One-Two-Go was blocked as the aviation agreement betweenThailand and Macau then allowedonly one airline from each side to offer regular flights. Air Macau already served the route from this end.

One-Two-Go operated a few charter flights from Pattaya before the Thai and Macau governments agreed to liberalize air traffic rights last fall. After flying some more charters from Bangkok, One-Two-Go gave up.

"There's overcapacity in this sector,"Udom said. Travelers from Thailand have been put off flying to Macau because of rising hotel room rates. "There's just not enough hotel rooms in Macau," he said.

According to figures from the Statisticsand Census Service, Macau's room supply contracted by 0.2 percent last year to 9,168 rooms.

For the year, hotels filled 76 percent of available rooms. The number of hotel guests coming from Thailand quadrupledin January from the same month a year ago to 1,895. Most Thai visitors stayed in four-star hotels.

Udom claimed AirAsia is doing poorly on its Macau route, filling only half the seats on its flights and selling many of those at deep discount.

AirAsia's Web site features one-way, pre-tax fares between Macau and Bangkok as low as 179 patacas, just over the promotional price of 149 patacas at which AirAsia introduced the service and below the 219 pataca level chief executive Tony Fernandes identifiedlast year; the price of the most expensivetickets has fallen to 679 patacas from 709 patacas.

AirAsia spokeswoman Jeamie Lee, however, disputed Udom's contentions.

"Our loads are very good," she said, pointing to the airline's addition of a second daily flight on the route just three months after it started service. She said that the airline has filled three-quarters of the seats on the flights since they started.

"Macau is one of our top sectors from Kuala Lumpur," she added, citing an 80 percent seat-fill rate. Many passengers taking AirAsia to Macau are traveling onward to Hong Kong or mainland China, she said.

Orient Thai serves Hong Kong and Guangzhou directly.

It costs HK$180 to take a Turbojet high-speed ferry from Hong Kong International Airport to Macau. The other way costs HK$200. Turbojet's other service from Shun Tak in Hong Kong costs HK$141 one way and HK$142 the other way.
