China Eastern orders 35 wide-body jets
Excerpt

BEIJING, April 28 (Reuters) - China Eastern Airlines on Thursday placed an order for 35 wide-body jets from Boeing Co and Airbus Group, as the Shanghai-based carrier continues to build its long-haul fleet amid the country's outbound travel boom.

Chinese airlines are adding flights to New York, Paris and Sydney from inland cities, while opening new routes to smaller cities in North America, Europe and Australia.

China Eastern, which has an equity tie up with Delta Air Line, aims to increase its market share this year on China-U.S. routes to 17 percent of total seats available, from 11 percent in 2015, according to its president Ma Xunlun.

Last year, 2.56 million Chinese people travelled to the United States, while some 2.1 million Americans came to China, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce and China National Tourism Administration. This year, outbound Chinese people will exceed 3 million, as U.S. government eases its visa policies.

China Eastern, which flies to New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Hawaii, is attracting more and more transit customers from North Asia and South Eastern Asia who prefer to take China Eastern flights in Shanghai to North America, according to Ma.

Delivery of the 15 B787-9 and 20 A350-900 jets will start from 2018, the Shanghai-based carrier said.

4 May 2016
Air Transport World Excerpt

China’s big three carriers—Air China, China Southern and China Eastern—have all reported big first-quarter profit increases as a result of stable market demand growth and lower fuel prices.

Beijing-based Air China posted first-quarter net income of CNY2.44 billion ($377 million), up 45% over a net profit of CNY1.68 billion in the year-ago quarter. Operating revenue rose 4.4% to CNY26.39 billion while operating expenses decreased 0.09% to CNY23.15 billion.

Guangzhou-based China Southern earned first-quarter net profit of CNY2.68 billion, up 41% over a net income of CNY2.77 billion in the same period last year. Operating revenue grew 0.99% to CNY 28 billion while operating expenses fell 2.67% to CNY24.74 billion.

Shanghai-based China Eastern reported first-quarter net income of 2.6 billion, up 66.37% compared to a net profit of CNY1.56 billion last year’s first quarter. Operating revenue rose 5.1% to CNY23.534 billion against a 0.71% increase in operating expenses to CNY18.53 billion.

Poor infrastructure, strict regulation prove a drag on corporate aviation
10 May 2016
China Daily Excerpt

While economic slowdown and tightening government controls are considered major reasons for the recent slide in the Chinese business aviation industry, the problems of insufficient infrastructure and relatively strict regulations should be addressed immediately if the industry is to seek long-term growth in China, according to a report.

According to the China Business Aviation Special Report 2016, jointly released by Hurun Report and Minsheng Financial Leasing in late April, complicated procedures of applying for flight routes and difficulty in parking private aircraft are the biggest obstacles to increasing sales of business jets to Chinese billionaires.

The current situation is stopping the latter from making up their mind on owning a plane.

Qiao Kai, vice-president of Minsheng Financial Leasing, said that most business jets have to wait for up to six hours before they could take off during busy hours in China.

For, they have to make way for commercial and rescue aircraft. But such a long waiting time is unacceptable for business jet owners who are more often than not on very tight schedules.

In this sense, China should follow mature markets such as the United States to build more smaller airports to meet the rising demand for air space for private flights.

Charles Mularski, chairman of the Asia Business Aviation Association, said: "Congestion is another issue holding back the development of business aviation in China. So, dedicated business aviation airports should be built in China."

Among all the busy Chinese cities, Beijing is considered the most difficult place in terms of aircraft parking, said Mularski. Limits on aircraft parking slots and parking time are extremely strict. The current practice is to offload passengers and move the aircraft to a spot that is not busy. But the problem is it will incur additional costs to park in a less congested airport.

Regulations relating to holders of air operator certificates are also holding back business aviation in China, said Mularski. Business aviation is not recognized as a different segment. So, the requirements for large commercial airlines are also applied to business aviation.

Complying with these requirements creates huge overheads that may be acceptable for a large fleet of commercial aircraft but are too much for some business aviation operators to afford.

Then there is the problem of insufficient infrastructure, which widens the gap between demand and supply. To address this, it is necessary to build fixed base operators or FBOs of the kind that serve the general aviation industry by supplying fuel, parking, catering and maintenance services.

There will soon be six nonstop flights from Seattle to China with new Xiamen route
12 May 2016
Puget Sound Business Journal Online Excerpt

Airlines will fly a record six nonstop routes between major Chinese cities and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, when Xiamen Airlines starts nonstop service in September.

The new three-times-weekly service will then connect to Xiamen, a city 360 miles to the northeast of Shenzhen.

The Port of Seattle and the airline announced the service Wednesday at a press conference in the Chinese city of Shenzhen. Seattle Mayor Ed Murray and other Seattle-area business leaders are in China this week to meet with officials.

Xiamen Airlines operates an all-Boeing fleet of 153 jetliners. The new route will be its first to the United States. Xiamen will operate the service with a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner.

The six total nonstop routes out of Sea-Tac also include flights with Delta Air Lines and Hainan Airlines.

Shenzhen is a fast-growing Chinese manufacturing city near the mouth of the Pearl River. It is near Guangzhou, Dongguan and other Pearl River Delta manufacturing cities.

The new Xiamen Airline service, on top of existing direct flights to Beijing, Hong Kong and Shanghai, reflects the growing links between Washington state and China.

South China Morning Post Excerpt
Cathay Pacific chairman says global airlines facing consolidation pressure
May 25, 2016

Economic headwinds are about to usher in a wave of airline industry consolidation globally, said John Slosar, chairman of Cathay Pacific Airways.

Speaking at an industry gathering on Wednesday, Slosar said industry consolidation, the emergence of Chinese airlines as international brands, and investment into data analytics are among the ongoing trends in the industry.

His remarks comes as a pending stake sell by Air New Zealand in Virgin Australia has attracted a slew of Chinese suitors including Hainan Airlines, China Southern Airlines as well as Cathay, according to the Australian Financial Review.

Cathay chief executive Ivan Chu had said the speculation on Virgin was “groundless”.

Hainan, the flagship carrier of the acquisitive HNA Group, and China Southern, the largest Chinese carrier on the China-Australia market, are both deemed logical buyers by analysts. Owning part or all of Australia’s second-largest carrier would not only give network access to the Chinese airlines eager to enhance their global networks, but allow them to benefit from the increasing number of Chinese tourists taking short flights within Australia.

Slosar said traffic is far less concentrated around Asia’s big airlines than it is for their US counterparts, after repeated mergers and restructurings helped to transform the formerly loss-making US airline sector into one with healthy profits.

HNA to buy Virgin Australia stake at $114 million
June 1, 2016
China Daily Excerpt

HNA Group, the Chinese conglomerate behind the country's largest private commercial airline, is buying a 13-percent stake in Virgin Australia Holdings Ltd for A$159 million ($114 million), the company's latest in a series of overseas acquisitions.

The purchase is costing 30 Australian cents per share. Virgin Australia said in a statement HNA has the intention of raising that stake to 20 percent over time.

Air New Zealand Ltd, Virgin Australia's biggest individual shareholder, has already said it could sell its 26-percent holding in the carrier.

John Borghetti, Virgin Australia Group's CEO, said the HNA agreement will allow it to operate direct flights to China, currently Australia's fastest-growing and most-valuable inbound travel market.

The two sides have also agreed to launch more cooperation on code-sharing, frequent flier programs and ground service resources, including lounge access.

"We are pleased to welcome HNA as a new shareholder and strategic alliance partner," said Borghetti.

"The alliance will see us leverage the opportunities offered by China, as well as the synergies of HNA's comprehensive aviation supply chain."

Inbound passengers to Australia from China have increased by around 18 percent per year since 2010. Last year, more than 1 million Chinese tourists visited, a 21.6 percent rise on 2014.

Virgin Australia is expecting 1.5 million Chinese travelers to be heading down under annually by 2020, a market worth A$13 billion by then.

HNA said in a statement it would support the growth of Virgin Australia by "injecting funds" and forming alliances with the airline, within its own overall plans to expand its global business and routes network.

China Eastern set to open new European routes
8 June 2016
Air Transport World

China Eastern Airlines is set to open four European routes from Shanghai to Amsterdam, Madrid, Prague and St. Petersburg, Russia, during the week of June 21.

According to the Shanghai-based carrier, the new 4X-weekly service to Amsterdam and Madrid will be operated by an Airbus A330-200. The 3X-weekly Shanghai-Prague service will be performed by an A330-200 and the 3X-weekly Shanghai-St. Petersburg route will use a Boeing 767.

China Eastern noted it will boost international capacities 30% on European routes by adding 40 more weekly flights after opening these four new routes.

The carrier plans to increase its cooperation with European carriers to further expand its reach into the European market. This strategy includes discussions with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines on setting up a joint venture on the Shanghai-Amsterdam route and negotiations with Czech Airlines on exploring the possibility of building Prague as its European hub. China Eastern had previously signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Czech Airlines.

Chinese citizens traveling to Europe reportedly increased 16% in 2014 and rose to 32% in 2015.

Beijing says 'Hai' to Manchester
11 June 2016
Manchester Evening News Excerpt

THE first direct flight to mainland China from outside London took off yesterday - and Manchester's economy is set to fly with it.

Hainan Airlines' Beijing route is an astounding coup for the city - boosting tourism, our universities, investment, the economy - and our links to the world's second biggest market.

Latest estimates from the Manchester-China Forum predict it will inject at least £500m into the nation's coffers - the lion's share of which will go to Greater Manchester.

It will also make life easier - and cheaper - for the 100,000 passengers who currently make the journey from Manchester indirectly every year.

And following on from the Cathay Pacific route to Hong Kong, it's a milestone on which to build new bridges - with an Air China service to Shanghai expected 'within 12 months.' .

City and airport leaders have been forging closer ties with China, particularly over the last three years.

Those links were strengthened in October by a visit from Xi Jinping, President of the People's Republic of China - who announced the service alongside David Cameron.

And as dignitaries and politicians gathered for the historic Hainan Airlines Beijing flight launch, those bonds were clear to see.

Serenaded by the Manchester Airport choir, homegrown and overseas students mingled with tourists, business travellers, dignitaries and even a Chinese dragon in Terminal Two.

Outside the Airbus A330-300, complete with special 'Hai Manchester' livery, had landed at 6am. The award-winning airline is among the 10 safest in the world.

Transport Minister Andrew Jones told the gathered passengers the flight was a major boost to the Northern Powerhouse.

He added: "I think it's great news for Manchester - but it's also recognition of the strength of the northern economy as a whole.

"The net value to the economy was worked out as £250m - but that was some months ago and those figures are being revised upwards - potentially doubling that.

China’s Home-Built Passenger Jet Makes Debut

Comac’s ARJ21 entered service a decade late as the industry struggles to match its western counterparts

Quote:
China’s first home-built passenger jet entered commercial service on Tuesday in a debut that is already a decade late and underscores problems in Beijing’s bid to become a global aviation player.

Aviation officials, executives and journalists were among the first passengers aboard the ARJ21 regional jet on the Chengdu Airlines flight, which departed the central city of Chengdu after some fanfare featuring ribbon-cutting and a posse of panda mascots. The plane landed in Shanghai just over two hours later, according to state media, which declared the flight a success.

The ARJ21, or Advanced Regional Jet for the 21st century, can carry between 78 and 90 passengers more than 2,200 kilometers, according to its state-owned manufacturer, Commercial Aircraft Corp. of China. Officials originally set a 2006 deadline for the jet’s commercial rollout, but its debut was repeatedly delayed by production setbacks.

The delays, industry experts said, mean that the ARJ21 is entering a more crowded regional-jet market dominated by the likes of Canada’s Bombardier Inc. and Brazil’s Embraer SA. Russia’s Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Co. also makes a regional jet, while Japan’s Mitsubishi Aircraft Corp. will pose a challenge with a new 70-to-90 seater.

Chengdu Airlines took delivery of the ARJ21 in November and hoped to start operations in February. Regulatory approval to launch commercial services finally came through Friday. The carrier didn’t offer specific reasons for the delays, though executives say they racked up nearly 140 hours worth of flight trials to make sure the aircraft is safe and ready.


“There have been various minor problems. This is unavoidable for all aircraft types and they have been dealt with properly,” the government news agency, Xinhua, quoted Chengdu Airlines Deputy General Manager Shuai Zhiyong as saying Tuesday. “Currently, the aircraft is safe.”

Though touted as a homegrown Chinese product, the ARJ21 is influenced by the McDonnell Douglas MD-90 and relies heavily on foreign technology, including avionics from Rockwell Collins Inc., engines from General Electric Co. and a wing designed by Ukraine’s Antonov State Co.

Industry observers say the lengthy approval process reflects cautiousness on the part of the Civil Aviation Administration of China, or CAAC. An earlier Chinese passenger plane, the MA60 twin-turboprop that is based on an old Soviet design, has had tepid sales and a service record marred by a number of accidents at home and abroad.

“China’s goal at this point is to prove to the world that its homegrown aircraft is reliable, competitive and safe,” said Derek Levine, an adjunct professor at the City College of New York and author of The Dragon Takes Flight. “The CAAC’s reputation is on the line.”

The civil aviation administration didn’t respond to a request for comment.

China’s commercial-plane makers have struggled to close the gap with Western aerospace giants, despite significant state largess for a project of national prestige. Analysts estimate the ARJ21 project racked up billions of dollars in costs since development began in 2002. The ARJ21 made its first flight in late 2008, three years behind schedule.

Comac has faced similar problems in its development of a larger jetliner, the C919. A prototype of that 158-to-174 seater was completed in early November, years behind schedule.

Another stumbling block for the ARJ21 is its lack of U.S. and European certification, which means it can’t be exported or flown to major Western markets. Chinese regulators certified the jet in late 2014, allowing it to operate domestically and in certain developing countries in Asia, Africa and South America that recognize the Chinese certification.

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration last year ended a shadow evaluation of the Chinese aviation authority’s ability to assess airworthiness—a process industry insiders said was fraught with discord over bureaucratic and technical matters. Comac is developing an ARJ21 variant with design changes that will bring the plane in line with U.S. standards.

Delays in the ARJ21’s development means Comac faces an uphill task in upgrading the plane to compete with Western-made rivals that boast superior fuel efficiency and operational performance.

The news agency, Xinhua, in reporting on the debut voyage cited complaints from the plane’s pilot about noise and vibration in the cabin. “The manufacturer has plans to make improvements and we hope that they can resolve the noise and vibration issues,” Xinhua quoted Chengdu Airlines Capt. Zhang Fangjie as saying.

Still, Comac can be assured of sales to Chinese airlines, whose aircraft purchases are controlled by the government. The company has received more than 300 orders for the ARJ21, the majority placed by Chinese airlines and leasing firms. Chengdu Airlines has another 29 ARJ21s on order and expects to take delivery of its second plane in August.

Just realize there is no thread for this aircraft model, although there is one for the C919. I've created one in the section.

Mutual trust required for new flight delay system
China Daily Excerpt
July 29, 2016

According to China’s new flight regulation, in case of flight delay due to bad weather passengers are required to cover their accommodation by themselves. The general public has expressed its concern over this issue, asking “How can we know if a delay is due to bad weather or airline problems?”

This new flight regulation was issued by China's Ministry of Transport. An article in Legal Daily said that a mutual-trust system between airlines and passengers is needed in implementing the new regulation.

In fact, for a long time in China, it has been the airlines’ responsibility to cover accommodation in case of flight delay caused by force majeure such as bad weather. But this is different from international practice.

The policy derived from Chinese passengers’ high expectation of airline service. In China, flying has been long considered a symbol of status and an expensive way to travel. Though people’s living standards have improved, they still think with a high price should come top service.

But an administrator from a big Chinese airline said, “There wasn’t any legal basis or contract requirement for the airline to do it. They did so only to improve their service quality and competitiveness; they undertook the responsibility beyond the contract.”

And in fact in 2010 the China Air Transportation Association released a regulation on transport quality and carrier service which provided that “passengers can be responsible for their accommodation in such cases.” The latest regulation has turned “can” into “should” and, according to Legal Daily, removed the cause of disagreement, but paying passengers may feel otherwise.

Often passengers cannot understand the flight delay because it’s sunny at their starting point, and bad weather at their destination or along the flight route is invisible. Besides, weather or other information from military air traffic control can’t be released which may also lead to misunderstanding.
