CNAC woos investors for US$800m airport fund - Equity firms sounded out on taking stakes in aviation development in a bid to ease Beijing's capital commitments
Russell Barling
18 May 2005
South China Morning Post

China National Aviation Corp (CNAC) is courting potential investors to take part in an US$800 million infrastructure fund that will be used to accelerate development of the mainland's aviation industry.

The fund will raise capital for the country's emerging airports and aviation-related businesses and may be ready for investors by July, according to a source close to the venture.

"It is still more of a concept. The structure of the fund is not in place, nor is the company that will have to be formed to launch it," the source said.

"After the Air China listing, CNAC began looking at other ways to raise money for aviation development, particularly of the secondary airports."

He said state-owned CNAC had been sounding out private equity firms for the invite-only fund - it is understood Macquarie Bank has been approached - but it was also courting "strategic investors that could contribute their expertise to the development of the industry".

A spokesperson for Airport Authority Hong Kong, which last month bought 35 per cent of Hangzhou Xiaoshan International Airport for 1.99 billion yuan, appeared to rule out its participation in the fund yesterday.

"We look at investing more from the strategic point of view," the official said. "We are not an investor per se."

Nevertheless, the fund may find support among local investors.

"We would expect a lot of interest from Hong Kong entities that have considerable experience in these types of ventures," said Peter Negline, a regional transport analyst for JP Morgan.

"There's no doubt (CNAC) has considerable knowledge in the aviation industry, so it would make a pretty attractive partner."

It is believed CNAC is keen to launch the fund in part to relieve Beijing of its growing aviation-related capital commitments. But its listed subsidiaries would not take part in the exercise, the source said.

"They are very aware it has to be well-positioned to not compete with their listed vehicles," he said.

The country's top three airports have direct access to capital. Shanghai A share Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport yesterday said it would tap the domestic markets to raise 2.8 billion yuan in convertible bonds for its second-phase expansion.

This includes plans for a larger main passenger terminal, a new runway and several third-party logistics facilities for air cargo.

However, the cost burden for the secondary airports, where demand for new infrastructure is most acute, remains up to the state.

Shenzhen's Baoan International Airport alone will require 20 billion yuan over the next 20 years, according to its master plan drafted last year by Netherlands Airports Consultants.

In 2002, when the government last revised its rules for foreign investment in its aviation sector, the airports in Kunming, Chongqing and Chengdu were also singled out as "clearly needing immediate major expansions".

They still await all or part of the required funding.

China is transferring management responsibility for its 145 airports from the state to the provincial and municipal authorities they serve. More than 90 airports are under the control of local authorities, but most lack the funding to upgrade rudimentary facilities and are underused.

Only 22 mainland airports can service Boeing 747-sized jets, the standard for international flights.

18 May 2005
Xinhua

BEIJING, May 18 (CEIS) -- The China Eastern Airlines opened a direct flight between Beijing and Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, on May 18, the first of its kind since the two countries signed bilateral civil aviation contract in 1980.

The Beijing-Kunming-Dhaka flight with a one-way distance of 3,545 kilometers lasts 5.5 hours. It is available at 10:50 a.m. in Beijing on every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. Before reaching Dhaka, it will stop over at Kunming, capital of southwest China's Yunnan Province.

Air Canada, Harmony Airways Designated To Operate Air Svcs To China
18 May 2005

OTTAWA (Dow Jones)--The Canadian government announced Wednesday the designation of ACE Aviation Holdings Inc.'s (ACE.B.T) Air Canada and Harmony Airways to operate scheduled air services between Canada and China.

In a news release, Transport Canada said this designation will allow Air Canada to expand its air service to China and Harmony Airways to introduce passenger flights to China in 2005.

Air Canada is the only air carrier in Canada that operates flights to China. For 2005, Transport Canada has allocated five additional flights a week to Air Canada to accommodate a new passenger service between Toronto and Beijing beginning in June and three flights a week for the introduction of an all-cargo service between Toronto and Shanghai, which began May 15.

Harmony Airways, a Vancouver-based air carrier, intends to introduce passenger services to China in 2005 by operating code-sharing services. Code-sharing is a type of air service whereby an airline sells seats in its name on the flights of another airline, it noted.

CargoJet, All Canada Express and Air Transat have also expressed an interest in operating air services to China, Transport Canada said.

Under the provisions of Canada's international air transportation policy, all Canadian air carriers may apply for designation to operate scheduled international air services. Subsequent allocations of designations will be made annually until 2008, as additional rights are phased in, about six months prior to the additional rights becoming available.

China's air freight transport on fast growth trend
19 May 2005
Xinhua's China Economic Information Service

SHANGHAI, May 19 (CEIS) -- China's air freight transport has been growing at an average growth rate of 14.3 percent in the pastfour years, becoming a stimulant to the country's civil aviation transportation, said a senior official with the General Administration of Civil Aviation of China (CAAC).

With China's entry into the WTO, China has witnessed fast growth in air cargo transport with cargo and mail transport volume increasing by 26.3 percent to 2.77 million tons in 2004, said deputy director Li Jun of the CAAC at the China Aviation Freight Circulation Forum held in Shanghai on May 19.

Air cargo transport has turned out to be a hot spot for investment, Li said, adding that the CAAC has worked out a series of preferential policies encouraging air cargo transport development.

Air cargo transport agencies have mushroomed in China in recent years. A total of 306 such agencies were approved in 2004, 128 more than in 2003.

Various airlines have vigorously readjusted air cargo resources, set up comprehensive air cargo transport networks and increased freight transport planes.

In addition, Sino-foreign cooperation has greatly strengthened in this sector, with nearly 90 foreign airlines launching freight and main transport services with China.

Continental Airlines to launch new non-stop flight between China and US
20 May 2005
Xinhua's China Economic Information Service

BEIJING, May 20 (CEIS) -- US-based Continental Airlines announced on May 20 to launch a daily non-stop air service from Beijing to New York from June 16.

Continental will be the only carrier offering daily non-stop service between two cities.

Flight CO88 will leave Beijing at 3:45 p.m. and arrive at New York at 5:15 p.m. the same day. The return flight will arrive in Beijing at 1:45 p.m. the next day.

China's fast growing economy, its attraction to foreign capital, and its business opportunity to host Olympics and World Expo will enable aviation industry to rise quickly in the future, said Jim Compton, executive vice president of Continental Airlines.

Continental is the world's sixth largest airlines. It has more than 3,000 daily departures throughout the world, serving 150 domestic and 130 international destinations.

Direct China-Spain flight resumed
23 May 2005
Xinhua's China Economic Information Service

MADRID, May 23 (CEIS) -- China and Spain resumed their direct flight on May 22 as an Air Europa plane left Madrid for Beijing.

The Airbus 340-200 with over 280 passengers on board took off at 5: 00 p.m. local time (1600 GMT), heading for Beijing's Capital International Airport. The non-stop journey will take 11 hours.

Air Europa's Beijing-Madrid flight is currently the only direct flight between the two countries, and the company is scheduled to launch its direct Madrid-Shanghai flight on May 23.

Minister of Industry, Commerce and Tourism Jose Montilla said the new routes will promote Spain-China exchanges in tourism, economy and trade.

About 36,000 Spanish tourists visited China and about 20,000 Chinese tourists came to Spain last year, he said.

There will be two round-trip flights weekly between Madrid and Shanghai and between Madrid and Beijing respectively.

China's Eastern Airlines launched its direct Shanghai-Madrid flight in June 1992 but canceled it in November 2003 after years of losses.

CHINA PRESS: Three Major Airlines Ask For Fuel Surcharge
23 May 2005

BEIJING (Dow Jones)--Three major Chinese airline companies have called for a fuel surcharge to help offset the rising cost of jet fuel, Shanghai Security News reports.

China Eastern Airlines Corp. (CEA), Air China Ltd. (0753.HK), and China Southern Airlines Co. (ZNH) have submitted appeals for the surcharge to the National Development and Reform Commission, the paper says.

If the appeals are approved by the NDRC, the ministry-level industry policy maker and pricing regulatory agency, passengers will have to pay 10%-20% more for plane tickets, the paper says.

The price for jet fuel has increased to CNY4,620 a metric ton from CNY3,300/ton early last year. In the first quarter, costs in the airline sector rose by CNY4.1 billion, while revenue increased by only CNY2.97 billion, resulting in widespread losses for airlines, the paper says.

Air China outbid in Shenzhen Airlines auction
Yi Yang and Huirun Investments agree to pay 2.72b yuan for controlling stake
SCMP000020050523e15o0000a

Russell Barling and Sijia Tiong
24 May 2005
South China Morning Post

Two unlisted mainland companies jointly outbid Air China for a controlling stake in Shenzhen Airlines yesterday in a move that looks set to see another privately held airline competing within the lucrative domestic market.

The joint venture, formed by Yi Yang Group and little-known, Shenzhen-based Huirun Investments, agreed to pay 2.72 billion yuan, eclipsing the Air China bid by 10 million yuan, according to a source with knowledge of the deal.

"The [Air China] board of directors set a price cap on what they were willing to bid for Shenzhen Airlines," an executive board member from the Air China Group in Beijing told the South China Morning Post. "The final price was too high for us to continue as it was above that cap."

The board's cap was set at 2.71 billion yuan, according to Air China's Hong Kong-based public relations firm, Christensen.

Air China, which owns 25 per cent of Shenzhen Airlines, was said to have been in the driver's seat going into the auction, with some reports indicating its bid would be given preferential treatment.

The carrier was eager to bring Shenzhen Airlines into its expanding group and give it better coverage of the south China market. Shenzhen Airlines flies to 80 destinations.

The original auction notice last month stirred wide industry interest but only three firms took part in yesterday's auction, with the third party thought to have been the Beijing branch of Citic Group.

Citic did not return calls yesterday.

Other potential buyers were thought to have been scared off by an entry bid of 1.5 billion yuan and a requirement that participants had assets of more than three billion yuan.

The stake was sold by Guangdong Holding Group, a division of Guangdong Development Bank. It is believed the bank was forced to sell off the non-core asset as part of its restructuring, which may see Beijing stump up as much as US$3.6 billion to relieve it of a raft of non-performing loans.

Shenzhen Airlines posted after-tax earnings of 200 million yuan last year and is believed to have been the only mainland carrier to post a profit during both Sars and the Asian financial crisis.

The airline has ambitious expansion plans, which call for its fleet to grow to 100 aircraft within five years from more than 40 leased and owned ones now.

It has ordered three A319s and three A320s from Airbus this year and is believed to be in discussions with a number of lease operators.

"Its programme calls for it to take delivery of one single-aisle every six weeks until the end of the decade," an analyst said.

Yi Yang is a Beijing-based firm with interests in the transport, telecommunications, energy and property fields, according to its website.

Shenzhen Airlines will now join Shanghai-based Spring Airlines, Chengdu-based United Eagle Airlines and Chongqing-based Huaxia Airlines as privately held carriers hoping to ply the mainland's lucrative domestic market.

Air China To Issue CNY2 Billion Short-Term Bonds
24 May 2005

BEIJING (Dow Jones)--Air China Ltd. (0753.HK) plans to issue CNY2 billion of short-term bonds and has selected Bank of China (BCH.YY) as its main underwriter, the bank said in a statement late Tuesday.

So far, Air China and five other unnamed local firms have submitted applications to the central bank to issue short-term bonds, said the statement, posted on Bank of China's website. It didn't elaborate.

Late on Tuesday, the central bank announced that domestic firms would be allowed to issue short-term bonds with tenors of up to 365 days. The reform is partly intended to reduce companies' reliance on bank loans, which has created high financial risk for the bank sector.

Young stowaway dies after falling from undercarriage of China plane

BEIJING, May 25 (AFP) - A young boy died Wednesday after falling from the landing gear of a China Eastern Airlines plane as it took off from an airport in northwestern Gansu province, state press reported.

The boy, aged about 10, apparently had snuck onto the airport tarmac for the early morning flight at Dunhuang airport and hid in the undercarriage, Xinhua news agency said.

The Airbus A320 plane continued to its destination after the incident and landed safely and on schedule in Lanzhou, capital of Gansu.

The Civil Aviation Administration of China has dispatched an investigator to the airport, with early indications suggesting lax security around the airport as the cause of the mishap, the report said.

Last November, a homeless 14-year-old boy hid in the landing gear of Chinese plane and survived a 700-kilometer (430 miles) flight across southwestern Yunnan province, but his younger companion fell from the plane and died.
