Four Chinese airlines sign US$5.04b deal for 42 Boeings


BEIJING: Four Chinese airlines have signed contracts to buy 42 of Boeing's new-generation 787 planes worth 5.04 billion dollars, officials said.

The carriers involved are Air China (15 planes), China Eastern Airlines (15), Shanghai Airlines (nine) and Xiamen Airlines (three).

George Liu, vice-president of communications at Boeing China, told AFP negotiations were continuing with Hainan Airlines and China Southern Airlines which are also considering buying the jet.

"Forty-two planes are involved. The other deals with the other airlines are still in the works," he said.

It was not immediately clear how many planes Hainan and China Southern might buy although in January Boeing signed an initial agreement to sell 60 787s worth 7.2 billion dollars to Chinese airlines.

That was followed by an announcement in late July by the Chinese government that they would finalise the contracts for a combined six billion dollars for 50 787s this month.

In Hong Kong share trading in China Eastern Airlines and Air China was suspended on the stock exchange ahead of news on the deal.

China's fast growing aviation industry needs more planes to meet demand. The figure of 121 million passengers carried last year represented 16 percent annual growth that was twice the world average, according to Chinese statistics.

Production of the 787, a long-haul 217-seat plane which Boeing says is more fuel-efficient than other jets, will begin in 2006. The first flight is expected in 2007 with deliveries starting in 2008.

The new Boeing plane faces stiff competition from the European consortium Airbus, with the growing Chinese market seen as one of the major prizes.

Earlier this year China signed a deal for five Airbus A35Os, a new model which is a more sophisticated version of its A330 with modifications to improve range. The plane is being developed as a direct challenge to the 787.

Five more Embraer jets in line for China Eastern
Reuters
August 10, 2005

Brazil's Embraer, the world's fourth-largest maker of commercial aircraft, is close to selling five more regional jets to China Eastern Airlines at a list price of US$100 million (HK$780 million) in total.

Though that order is tiny compared with Embraer's US$4 billion in annual sales, it advances the firm's effort to claw market share in China from larger rival Bombardier.

China Eastern Airlines agreed in March to buy five ERJ 145 aircraft from Embraer's manufacturing venture in Harbin city, where the five additional aircraft will also be made. That factory is operating far under capacity.

Embraer, which hopes its US$25 million Harbin plant will spearhead an expansion in a rapidly expanding Chinese market, derives less than a quarter of its global revenue from outside North America.

"Developing the regional market is a strategic decision for China, as the potential here is huge,'' said Guan Dongyuan, Embraer's chief China representative. Embraer foresees demand for more than 600 regional jets in the mainland over the next two decades.

To capitalize on that, Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica (Embraer) set up a joint venture with China Aviation Industry Corporation II in 2003 to make aircraft in Harbin. Its only other sales to date have been six jets for China Southern Airlines, which operates the country's largest fleet.

Only China Southern and regional carrier Sichuan Airlines fly Embraer jets in the mainland, though the first deliveries to China Eastern are expected to begin this month.

By comparison, Bombardier, with global revenue last year of almost US$16 billion, has sold jets to Shanghai Airlines, Shandong Airlines and China Eastern.

A total of 46 Bombardier aircraft operate in China, including government-owned aircraft and those based in Hong Kong and Macau, compared with just 12 for Embraer.

China's two top oil producers team to tap jet fuel market

BEIJING, Aug 9 (AFP) - China's two largest oil producers will team up with the country's top aviation oil dealer to establish a company to introduce more competition into its jet fuel market, state press said Tuesday.

China National Petroleum Corp (CNPC), and China Petroleum and Chemical Corp, parents of Hong Kong-listed PetroChina and Sinopec respectively, will set up a joint venture with China Aviation Oil Holding Company (CAOHC).

The new firm will supply jet fuel to Chinese airports, the China Daily said, citing officials from CAOHC, which now holds a near-monopoly on China's jet fuel market.

"It is a restructuring of the aviation oil company by introducing more shareholders," the official said.

According to the report, CAOHC will take 51 percent of the new joint venture, CNPC will own 21 percent, and Sinopec Corp will control the remaining 29 percent.

It said the idea was first raised in 2002 by the General Administration of Civil Aviation of China (CAAC) in an attempt to produce a more consolidated and competitive industry.

Analysts cited by the paper said the merger would fend off fierce competition when the government allows foreign companies into the wholesale refined oil market from the end of next year.

CAAC statistics show costs for China's airlines, money mainly spent on jet fuel, reached 27.8 billion yuan (3.4 billion dollars) in the first quarter of this year, up 17.3 percent year-on-year.

9 August 2005

HONG KONG (Dow Jones)--Beijing Capital International Airport Co. (0694.HK), which operates the airport in China's capital city, said its passenger throughput in July was 20% higher than a year earlier, at 3.8 million.

A total of 22.5 million passengers passed through the airport in the first seven months of 2005, 20% more than the 18.8 million in the same period of 2004, according to figures published on the company's Web site Tuesday.

Cargo and mail traffic rose 23% in July to 61,348 metric tons, the data showed. Total cargo and mail traffic for the first seven months of 2005 was 18% higher at 420,567 tons, from 357,773 tons in the same period of 2004.

The number of airplane takeoffs and landings at the airport rose 14% in July to 30,475. With those gains, aircraft movements total 193,426 for the first seven months, 13% more than the 171,494 accumulated in the first seven months of 2004.

China Southern Air says senior executive arrested

SHANGHAI, Aug 15 (Reuters) - A top executive with China's biggest airline has been arrested for economic crime, an executive with the carrier's parent said on Monday, as the fallout from a major brokerage's failure widened.

A spokeswoman with the airline's parent, China Southern Air Holding Co., told Reuters the arrest of Peng Anfa was related to the group's $133 million investment loss connected with failed Hantang Securities.

"He was involved in that failed investment, and charges placed against him were of an economic nature," she said, without elaborating and declining to be identified.

China Southern Co. Ltd, , the listed unit of the mainland's top carrier by fleet size, said Monday that "Peng Anfa was arrest by legal authorities in connection with allegations of unlawful acts".

Financial problems were discovered during the latest audit of accounts at the parent firm, sources told Reuters in July.

The funds that were lost had been held by Hantang Securities, which was seized in September 2004 by the China Securities Regulatory Commission as part of an ongoing effort to clean up the country's troubled brokerage sector.

Peng is also deputy general manager of the carrier's state parent. The spokeswoman said the group was preparing an official statement to remove him from that position.

China Southern Air Holding joins a spate of firms, most of them domestically listed, to fall victim to problems in China's brokerage sector, which is crowded with loss-making firms.

Earlier this year, China shut its fifth-largest brokerage, China Southern Securities Co. Ltd., as Beijing takes drastic steps to revamp its shaky financial sector. More recently it bailed out number-two brokerage Galaxy Securities.

China Southern's listed unit has proposed removing Peng from his board position, it said in an announcement carried by major financial newspapers.

The accusations were of a personal nature unrelated to the company, the statement said, adding they would have no impact on the airline's operations.

Peng, also a pilot for China Southern, received no payment for serving on the board and was remunerated solely for the hours he flew for the airline, state media reported.

Last week, a Chinese court gave a suspended death sentence to the former chief of the Bank of China's [BOC.UL] Hong Kong arm on charges of corruption.

Liu Jinbao headed the Bank of China Hong Kong when it listed in July 2002 and had been accused of embezzling 7.72 million yuan ($953,300), the official Shanghai Securities News reported in July. ($1=8.098 Yuan)

Overseas carriers to face no restrictions on international flights in China's west
16 August 2005

SHANGHAI, China (AP) - China plans to allow overseas carriers to operate an unlimited number of international flights in the country's west in hopes of boosting growth in the relatively underdeveloped region, an aviation official was quoted on Tuesday as saying.

"There will be no more limits on overseas carriers' applications for operating international flights in western areas," the China Daily newspaper quoted Yang Guoqing, vice director of the Civil Aviation Administration of China, as saying.

The report gave few specifics, but Yang appeared to indicate that restrictions would be lifted over six provinces and autonomous regions in western China that are now home to 32 airports.

Passenger traffic in those areas, which include the important tourism regions of Tibet and Yunnan province, rose 35 percent in 2004 over the previous year, the report said.

The six regions are due to add another 16 airports by the end of the decade and have a total of 60 by 2020, according to a separate report by the Xinhua News Agency.

An official with the aviation administration's publicity department confirmed the report but said few details were available.

Efforts would focus initially on areas with existing international airports, said the official, who refused to give her name.

China to build one of world's highest airports in Tibet

BEIJING, Aug 16 (AFP) - China plans to build one of the world's highest airports in mountainous Tibet, state media said Tuesday.

The airport in Ngari prefecture near Tibet's border with Kashmir will be only the third in the Himalayan region once it is completed, Xinhua news agency quoted Yan Shijin, deputy director of Tibet's development and reform commission, as saying.

It will be located 4,300 meters (14,300 feet) above sea level, making it one of the highest airports in the world, according to the agency.

There are just two airports in Tibet at present, one near the capital Lhasa and the other in Qamdo prefecture.

China Eastern Air July Passengers Up 61% On Yr To 2.8 Mln

HONG KONG (Dow Jones)--China Eastern Airlines Corp. (CEA) said Wednesday it carried 61% more passengers in July than in the same month last year, after it consolidated operations from two newly acquired units.

Shanghai-based China Eastern said it included the figures of China Eastern Air Yunnan Co. and China Eastern Air Northwest Co. in its July passenger data after it completed a CNY986 million acquisition of the two airlines in June.

The airline, which is one of China's three main state-controlled airlines, carried 2.8 million passengers in July, up from 1.6 million in June. The company didn't provide year-earlier figures.

It said its domestic passengers rose 76% on year to 2.2 million, while international passengers increased 34% on year to 356,240.

The passenger load factor - the percentage of seats that were filled - was 74%, up from 68% in June.

The airline's freight load factor was 51% in July, down from 53% a month earlier.

Korean Air says to acquire China's Okay Airways

SEOUL, Aug 22 (Reuters) - South Korea's biggest airline Korean Air Co. said on Monday it had signed a preliminary agreement to take over China's Okay Airways to target booming air cargo and passenger demand in China.

The announcement came after Korean Air said in June it was in talks with China's first private airline on a possible joint venture.

Korean Air would finalise pricing, acquisition terms as well as timing after due diligence, Korean Air said in a statement.

Under Chinese regulations, a foreign company is allowed to buy a stake of up to 25 percent in a Chinese airline, while the combined stakes held by foreign investors are limited to 49 percent, the statement said.

Okay Airways, based in the northern Chinese city of Tianjin, started flights early this year. It subleased its first two Boeing 737-900s from Korean Air.

China has opened the market to allow private airlines and also to let in foreign investment.

Shares in Korean Air were down 0.5 percent at 18,750 won by 0135 GMT, versus 0.99 percent rise in the broader market .

Shanghai Airlines buys two Boeing 767 jets-paper

BEIJING, Aug 23 (Reuters) - Shanghai Airlines Co. Ltd , a regional carrier based in commercial hub of Shanghai, has signed to buy two Boeing 767-300 ER jets with a catalogue price of about $256 million, local media reported on Tuesday.

Shanghai Air would take delivery of the two aircraft in July and November 2006, said the China Securities Journal.

The airline earlier this month signed a contract to buy 9 Boeing 787s, part of a $5 billion deal for 42 aircraft by four Chinese carriers.

Boeing says China will become the world's second largest commercial aviation market, behind the United States, within 20 years. China is expected to need 2,300 planes over the next two decades as increasingly wealthy Chinese take to the skies.

This is ignorant me talking but I didn't know the Boeing still produced Boeing 767's. I had the idea they went the way of the 757.

I wish Boeing didn't scrap the Boeing 717 and MD90 though.

HK PRESS: China Eastern May Bid For Wuhan Airline Stake

HONG KONG (Dow Jones)--China Eastern Airlines Corp. (600115.SH), the country's second-largest carrier, may bid for a 40% state-owned stake in a domestic airline in Wuhan city to double its shareholding and gain control of the company, reports The Standard, quoting a senior airline official.

"We have contacted the Wuhan authorities, however no final decision has been made," said China Eastern Executive Director Luo Zhuping.

Wuhan State-owned Assets Management Corporation plans to auction its 40% stake in China Eastern Airlines Wuhan, which was formed when Shanghai-based China Eastern and Junyao Group's aviation unit bought their stakes in 2002.

Foreign airlines to open air routes to Guangzhou
25 August 2005
Xinhua's China Economic Information Service

GUANGZHOU, August 25 (CEIS) – The aviation market of Guangzhou, capital city of South China’s Guangdong Province bordering Hong Kong, will see a scene of bustle and excitement in the coming month of September when several foreign airline companies including Air France, Finnair and Hong Kong Express Airways open new air routes connecting the booming city with other large cities of the world.

Industry experts say the concentrated moves of foreign airlines will consolidate the position of Guangzhou as an aviation hub. As the internationalization level of the Guangzhou Baiyun Airport is still low, there are great potentials to develop this aviation market, particularly in air freight transportation.

It is learned that Air France will open Paris-Guangzhou-Paris air freight flights on September 3; Finnair will open regular return passenger flights between Guangzhou and Helsinki on September 5; and Hong Kong Express will launch Guangzhou-Hong Kong return passenger route with five flights every day on September 8.

The Pearl River Delta with neighboring Guangzhou and Shenzhen cities as the core now leads the whole country in economic development. Its geographical closeness to Hong Kong and Macao further enables it to enjoy more business opportunities. It is thus natural for Guangzhou as the aviation hub of the Pearl River Delta and even the whole south China region to attract foreign airline companies, said Guo Liangsheng, a scholar of the Guangzhou Civil Aviation Profession Technology Institute.

While the global civil aviation market is saturating, the China market is still undersupplied. For instance, China’s civil aviation freight volume is now keeping an average annual growth rate of over 15 percent, twice as high as the world average. In particular, the air freight transport capacity in China is still seriously inadequate.
