QANTAS to Spend US$3.7 BLN Replacing B747 Fleet: Report

SYDNEY, Oct 26 Asia Pulse - Qantas Airways plans to spend more than $A5 billion ($US3.73 billion) replacing its ageing fleet of 747 jumbo jets with new generation long-haul aircraft.

The carrier would spend at least $US4 billion ($A5.4 billion) on new aircraft which would allow it to make non-stop flights from Australia to Europe, the Middle East and the United States.

The move would reduce fuel costs and landing fees, The Financial Review said today, citing sources.

Among the planes being considered are the new generation Boeing 777 or Airbus A340.

The spending spree would be on top of the A$18 billion Qantas had already flagged it would spend modernising its remaining fleet, including the purchase of 12 Airbus A380s capable of carrying 550 passengers each.

Valuair in GSA deal with WAS
Singapore-based “mid frills” carrier Valuair has appointed World Aviation Systems as general sales agent in Australia and New Zealand in the lead-up to the launch of daily Perth-Singapore flights from December 1.

Perth will be the first Australian destination for the carrier which was launched in May this year and currently flies Airbus A320 twinjets to Bangkok, Hong Kong and Jakarta.

“Valuair will offer a range of “value for money” air fares between Perth and Singapore, and will announce details in the coming week,” World Aviation Systems general manager Melvyn Almeida said.

“Unlike most other low cost operators, Valuair will include light meals, coffee and tea, audio and video entertainment, allocated seating and a free baggage allowance of up to 20 kilograms per person.”

The single-class aircraft will also feature leather seats with a 34-inch seat pitch (compared with 32 inches on other airlines on the route).

Valuair flight VF101 will depart Perth at 11.55pm, arriving in Singapore at 5.30am.

The return service, flight VF102, will leave Singapore at 5.40pm and arrive in Perth at 11.05pm

Round trip to Perth for $350

Valuair's daily flights to Perth from Dec 1 will cost about half of SIA and Qantas fares

By Karamjit Kaur
Transport Correspondent


THE stranglehold that Singapore Airlines and Qantas have had over the highly lucrative route to Perth will be broken on Dec 1 when Valuair starts daily flights to the Western Australian city.

The low-frills carrier, the first of the budget crowd to venture into Australia, will do so at round-trip fares that start at about half of what the big boys charge. It will cost just $350, for a round trip, for those who book at least a month in advance - excluding taxes and other surcharges. Travellers who book at least two weeks beforehand will have to pay $420.

Currently, SIA and Qantas fly to Perth 28 times a week, charging about $650 to $700 return. Valuair said its highest fare will be 25 to 30 per cent less than what they charge. It will also have special student fares.

The airline received the nod to fly to Perth from Singapore last month, and got the green light from Australia last week. Its daily flight will leave Changi Airport at 5.30pm and reach Perth at 11.05pm that day. Flights from Perth will take off at 11.55pm and arrive here at 5.35am the next day.

'It's a good time to arrive in Singapore because passengers can then connect to our other flights to Bangkok, Hong Kong or Jakarta,' Valuair chief executive officer Sim Kay Wee told The Straits Times. 'And this way, we also help to promote Changi Airport as a hub.'

Those taking the carrier will find they have more leg room than on many other full-service airlines, as Valuair will be soon be acquiring two more Airbus A320 aircraft for its Perth service. Said Mr Sim: 'Each aircraft will have 150 seats instead of the usual 162, which means passengers will have a seat pitch of 86cm for a more comfortable ride.' The standard for economy class seats is 81cm.

Unlike its first two aircraft, its latest planes will also have in-flight entertainment systems, so movies can be screened. Mr Sim explained: 'The flights we now do to Bangkok, Jakarta and Hong Kong are less than three hours. But it's about four to five hours to Perth, so it's important to provide entertainment.' Valuair, which started operating in May, also serves food and allocates seats, unlike budget carriers Tiger Airways and AirAsia.

To gear up for its new service, it is working with the Singapore Tourism Board on promotions in Australia from next month, including lucky draws with air tickets and holiday packages here as prizes.

Mr Sim expects the Singapore-Perth route to be highly popular, as 55,000 Singaporeans visited West Australia last year. This is expected to jump to 61,000 this year. They make up about 14 per cent of West Australia's international visitors and are the state's second biggest source of foreign arrivals.

Bookings for the Perth service start on Sunday.

Housewife Zahara Bibi, 47, said: 'I've a sister who lives there, so this will give me a chance to visit her more often.'

Qantas to increase capacity on regional services
Perth Airport welcomes the announcement by Qantas that the airline will introduce the Boeing 717 on a number of regional routes out of Perth.

This is good news for people travelling within Western Australia as the new aircraft will provide a boost in capacity on regional routes, Perth Airport CEO Graham Muir said.

Perth Airport has been experiencing record numbers of domestic passengers, with the September quarter 2004 showing growth of 16% on the same period last year.

The number of domestic passengers travelling through Perth Airport have been at monthly record levels for the last 24 months in a row. This reflects the effect of cheaper fares and increased capacity by Qantas, Virgin Blue and Skywest. Mr Muir said

Qantas increases flights to Britain via Singapore and Hong Kong

SYDNEY, (AFP) - Qantas Airways said it will increase the number of flights from Australia to Britain with stopovers in Hong Kong and Singapore.

Qantas general manager John Borghetti said that from Sunday the airline would add an extra three flights a week on both the Perth-Singapore-London and Sydney-Hong Kong-London routes.

"These six new flights will increase the number of UK services offered by Qantas from 21 a week to 27 a week," Borghetti said. "This will mean nearly 2,300 more seats to London."

He said Qantas would add a fourth extra flight on the Sydney-Hong Kong-London route in 2005 and it had approval to operate a further three flights from April 2006.

"Hong Kong has been a popular Qantas destination in its own right for a long time and now it will also be available as a stopover destination to Europe," he said.

Qantas also announced a codeshare agreement with Air Frace which will see the Australian airline's customers connect with daily Air France flights in Singapore to reach Paris.

No worries, China

CLIVE DORMAN
30 October 2004
The Age

The long-predicted boom in air travel between Australia and China is finally happening. After a series of setbacks - from the Tiananmen Square massacre in Beijing in 1989 to the SARS epidemic in 2002 and economic crises in between - liberalisation by Australia and China of their air services agreement has tens of thousands of Chinese visitors coming to Australia.

Once there was only a twice-a-week Beijing-Guangzhou-Melbourne-Sydney milk run, operated only by the Chinese state-owned carrier Air China. Now there is fierce four-way competition between Beijing-based Air China, Guangzhou-based China Southern, Shanghai-based China Eastern and Qantas, which will soon resume flying the Sydney-Shanghai route three times a week after several interruptions caused by one or other of the region's crises.

Some travel industry officials believe that by next decade there will be as many Chinese visitors to Australia as there are from America and Europe.

About 80 per cent of the airline seats coming in from China are now filled by Chinese, but the number of Australians visiting China is also on the rise.

At the moment all services from Melbourne to China are via Sydney bu next month China Eastern will begin north bound non-stop flights from Melbourne to Shanghai. (Air China, China Southern and China Eastern all fly non-stop from either Guangzhou or Shanghai to Melbourne on the southbound journey.)

By the middle of next year there will be as many as 3000 new weekly seats between Melbourne and the Chinas (Hong Kong and the mainland) as a result of air treaty liberalisation.

Industry officials believe it's only a matter of time before the routing of flights from Melbourne to China via Sydney disappears as more and more go direct to their destinations.

It's ironic and disappointing that the airline that has grown to become China's biggest, China Southern, is the smallest player in the Australian market behind China Eastern and Air China.

It's disappointing because even when China Southern goes daily to Australia from December, Melbourne will continue to get only two services a week (with the northbound trip via Sydney).

Yet China Southern is the best-placed of all the local carriers to move traffic in and out of China, in the same way that United Airlines has the advantage at Los Angeles because of its vast US domestic network.

For a start, China Southern's hub in Guangzhou (the old Canton), just over the fence from Hong Kong, is amazing. The new $4 billion airport, 30 kilometres east of the city, is being ramped up to take up to 80 million passengers a year by the end of this decade, making it the third-biggest airport on the planet. (So it should be, as Guangdong province, of which Guangzhou is the capital, accounts for a quarter of China's annual economic output!)

It's also perfectly positioned geographically to take flights from Australia. Not only is it the closest landfall from Down Under, but China Southern's huge local network enables seamless connections to virtually every important destination in the country, from Beijing in the north, to Chengdu and Chongqing in the west and Sanya (China's emerging beach holiday getaway on Hainan Island) in the south. China Southern even flies to Lhasa, Tibet, in the Himalayas.

China Southern says the existing four services a week from Australia arrive in Guangzhou in time to make up to 100 daily domestic connecting flights.

Trying to do the same thing via Shanghai further north can add hours to the trip, if the connection is possible at all. And it's difficult via Hong Kong, which has only a small and relatively infrequent intra-China network operated by Cathay Pacific and the local carrier, Dragonair.

However, there's another task that all the Chinese carriers will be able to perform with increasing frequency and convenience in the next few years: flying Australian travellers on to Europe. China Southern, for example, already operates regular services from Guangzhou to Paris and Amsterdam.

Virgin Atlantic eyes the superior seats

Scott Rochfort
28 October 2004
The Sydney Morning Herald

The biggest threat Virgin Atlantic faces when it lands
in Australia on December 8 won't be the Flying
Kangaroo but its sister airline, Virgin Blue.

It's not that both airlines will be competing, just
that Virgin Atlantic concedes it will have to overcome
the budget mantra now synonymous with the Virgin name
in Australia if it wants to lure passengers to its
Upper Class berths.

Given Virgin Atlantic's key objective is to snare some
of the 70 per cent of the Australia-London business
and first-class market "owned" by Qantas and British
Airways, the airline's Australian marketing manager,
Gia Acitelli, said: "Basically the campaign is to
differentiate us from Virgin Blue."

Ms Acitelli would not say how she planned to do this
but the other objective of her $1 million, five-month
campaign - to be launched next month - will be to
promote Virgin Atlantic's Upper Class bed, which it
believes is superior to that on Qantas flights.

Virgin says its Upper Class bed is 33 inches (84
centimetres) wide around the shoulder area, against
23.5 inches on Qantas First Class. Virgin Atlantic
even says Qantas scaled back its Skybed campaign in
August - when its I Still Call Australia Home ads were
re-launched - because it realised its business class
product was inferior to Virgin's.

"I notice now that their whole advertising spin has
changed since we came to the market," Ms Acitelli
said.

But Qantas marketing manager Martin McKinnon suggested
Virgin Atlantic executives should perhaps drive past
Sydney Airport. "There's a huge billboard, 60 foot
long promoting the Skybed."

He said Qantas planned to keep promoting its Skybed,
along with its I Still Call Australia Home ads.

Virgin challenged BA's long-held supremacy of the
trans-Atlantic business class market when it was the
first to introduce "truly flat bed" seats last year.

Advertising through print media, billboards and
internet, Virgin Atlantic is keen to spread the word
about its Upper Class bed and other services such as
on-board masseurs and chauffeur-driven journeys for
passengers from London's Heathrow Airport.

Given its small ad budget, the airline makes no secret
of how it will promote its product.

"We don't spend a lot of money on advertising, simply
because we have a terrific PR machine called Richard
Branson," Ms Acitelli said.

Sir Richard, the airline's founder, gained a few
headlines last year with his proposal to fly a
Concorde on Virgin's inaugural flight to Sydney. Then
there was his unreciprocated challenge to Qantas chief
executive Geoff Dixon to dress as a hostess if his
airline did not land in Sydney by next year.

Virgin Atlantic has no plans for TV ads but notes that
for "four or five days we'll be in the press" when Sir
Richard visits Australia this December.

At a conference planned for next week, Virgin Atlantic
will be the only airline to contest an Australian
Competition and Consumer Commission proposal to extend
Qantas's and BA's joint service agreement for five
more years. The agreement allows them to co-ordinate
schedules and fares on Australia-London flights.

The kwest is on to develop a world class business and logistics precinct on land at Perth Airport.

Perth Airport is Western Australia's most unique property development site with some 700 hectares of land available.

The site is being developed by kwest, the property development division of Westralia Airports Corporation.

No other site comes close to offering the combined advantages of:
-proximity to the CBD
-unconstrained development and expansion potential
-highly competitive leasehold terms
-adjacency to primary arterial roadways
-high profile public exposure
-direct connection to international, domestic, regional and corporate air services

The Living Stream
Kwest is creating a new green gateway to Perth Airport. An ancient water course that once flowed from the hills to the Swan River will be revived forming a new parkland corridor. The Living Stream will provide an environment of campus style offices and high value developable land.

Four major precincts are being developed on the estate:
1. Kewlink Intermodal Business Park
An advanced logistics management precinct with on demand supply chains making central and shared warehousing a reality.
2. hkew Office Park Gateway Precinct
Premium grade office buildings located on the Living Stream.
3. onkew Logistics Park
State of the art logistics. The connectivity of air, rail, road, shipping and warehousing will create a world standard in logistics.
4. ikew International Business Park
A dynamic precinct featuring companies whose activities centre of Perth Airport.

The Master Plan outlines a framework for development of the airport's non-aeronautical property, which is defined as land surplus to passenger and airfield related and ancillary support requirements.

The purpose of the strategy is to provide strategic development direction that is guided by sound on-airport and off-airport planning principles.

The recommended land uses and development plan is meant to be used as a broad framework. Details are subject to change in the future as implementation of the development plan occurs over time.

Objectives
The non-aeronautical property strategy incorporates both planning and development objectives. The planning objectives intend to define land uses and a development plan which:
-integrates the airport's overall development strategy and aeronautical requirements
-accommodates planning constraints unique to airport property such as noise and height limitations
-is sensitive to natural heritage areas
-is consistent with regional and local planning principles
-fosters and support sustainable development using "best practise".
The development objectives
-structure sustainable development that enhances the airport's overall viability
-leverage the key strengths of the market and location
-design a development program that provides a strong and sustainable image for the commercial properties
-maximise the strategic value of airport land.

Development Opportunities
Competitive Advantage
Perth Airport is the gateway to Perth and the State of Western Australia, and is well situated geographically, politically and economically for dynamic opportunities into the next decade.

Key strengths include:
-proximity to the South-East Asia market
-strong resource industries
-good lifestyle
-attractive tourist destination
-above average population growth
-economic stability
-political freedom and stability
-high quality infrastructure; and
-educated and skilled workforce.
-Business Opportunities

Given the outstanding regional features of Perth Airport, the following business opportunities can be accommodated:
-industries that depend on good logistical support
-multinational corporations that need a regional base with a good image
-high technology industries that value just-in-time manufacturing and delivery
-air, road, and other transportation-based industries
-industries that process and produce time-sensitive products.

The advantages of the Perth region together with the advantages of developing on an international airport provides strategic business opportunities for commercial properties which could include:
-Australasian business centre
-regional corporate headquarters
-high technology research and development manufacturing complex;
-entertainment/recreational centre
-world-class logistics hub.

Development Strategy
The development strategy is based on seven precincts with allocated land use categories.

The precincts have been configured, sized, and located to achieve the following objectives:
-maximise their respective exposure to major existing and projected regional networks
-allow flexibility for future subdivision and internal roadway layouts
-accommodate existing physical boundaries such as major roadways
-compose land with high conservation and heritage priories into large contiguous areas.

Each precinct has been designed to support the planning and real estate value of surrounding precincts and further support the airport's image as a global transportation and logistics centre. Strategic opportunities have been assessed against the strengths and weaknesses of the seven precincts, which have resulted in eight-land use categories:
-high profile commercial uses
-airport aviation commercial uses
-general commercial uses
-short stay accommodation uses
-recreational uses
-light industrial uses
-warehouse/showroom uses
-conservation areas

Valuair gets go-ahead for Perth/Singapore services
Perth Airport congratulates Valuair on being granted its Australian Air Operators Certificate (AOC) and International Airline Licence allowing the budget airline to begin services to Perth on 1st December 2004.

Valuair is the first budget carrier to commence services on the Perth Singapore route. Tickets go on sale from 31st October and it is expected that the airline will prove popular with leisure travellers.

Perth Airport and the State Government worked closely with Valuair to deliver this service to the Western Australian public, Perth Airport CEO Graham Muir said.

It is great news for Western Australians travelling to Singapore and great for WA tourism with the airline likely to generate more leisure travellers from Singapore to the state Mr Muir said.

It also provides further opportunity for travellers to great deals on connecting air fares to and from Valuairs other destinations including Bangkok, Jakarta and Hong Kong he said.

Valuair will operate daily services departing Perth at 23:55 arriving in Singapore at 05.30 and departing Singapore at 17:40 arriving into Perth at 23:05.

The airline will operate an Airbus A320 aircraft with 150 seats.

QANTAS Carries 11.3% More Passengers in Sept Yr-on-Yr

SYDNEY, Nov 9 Asia Pulse - Australia's biggest carrier Qantas Airways Ltd carried more international and domestic passengers in September compared to the same month a year ago, the airline's latest traffic figures show.

Total domestic passengers carried totaled 1.96 million, up 11.3 per cent, while international passengers carried rose 6.9 per cent to 771,000.

Overall, the number of passengers carried was up 10 per cent to 2.73 million in September, from September 2003.

Qantas said domestic traffic as measured by revenue passenger kilometres (RPKs) rose 10.4 per cent.

Capacity as measured by available seat kilometres (ASKs) was up 10.6 per cent.

"This resulted in a revenue seat factor of 80 per cent, 0.2 percentage points lower than for September 2003," it said.

International RPKs was up 8.4 per cent and ASKs by 18.7 per cent.

That resulted in revenue seat factor of 72.9 per cent, down 6.9 percentage points on September 2003.

September group RPKs rose 9.1 per cent, ASKs were up 16 per cent while the revenue seat factor was 75.2 per cent, down 4.8 percentage points.

In the year to September 30, group passenger number were up 11.2 per cent to 8.23 million.

RPKs increased by 11.3 per cent, while ASKs rose 17.4 per cent, resulting in a revenue seat factor of 76.2 per cent, down 4.2 per cent on the previous corresponding year.

Qantas' low cost airline Jetstar carried 334,000 passengers in September, up from 321,000 in August and 273,000 in July.

Perth Airport No.1
Perth Airport, the wholly owned subsidiary of Airstralia Development Group, has been voted Australian Major Airport of the Year for the second year running. The Australian Airports Association (AAA) presented the award to Perth Airport at the organisation’s award dinner held in Alice Springs.

AAA made their decision based on some outstanding achievements by Perth Airport including boosting its EBITDA by 25 per cent on the previous year by posting an operating profit of $2.34 million, on-time implementation of a $2.1 million business system upgrade, and completed construction of the $1.4 million driver training centre.

The airport also was able to erect the new 3,500 square metre AQIS building worth $5.6 million, and commence construction of a $25 million upgrade of the international terminal building that will include including an extra 14 check-in counters, additional floor space and a new baggage handling system.

Turnover for the airport in 2003/04 was comprised of 1.76 million international passengers and 4.27 million domestic passenger.

The Australian Infrastructure Fund run by Hastings Fund Management has a 26 per cent equity holding in the Airstralia Development Group.

International Terminal Project



Project Overview
The project comprises the expansion of the International Terminal Building (ITB) to allow the provision of 38 new check-in counters and an automatic baggage handlng system incorporating checked bag screening (CBS). Fourteen additonal check-in counters will be provided within the main hall extension area along with expansion of the baggage make-up hall to accommodate the new baggage handling system and a new third make-up carousel. Estimated cost of the project is around $25m and will be completed by February 2005.



Project Update
The Builder for the project - Cooper & Oxley has endeavoured to accelerate construction during the past 6 weeks with the major milestone of the pouring of the first floor prestressed slab being achieved on 30th August. The adjoining shot taken from the upper level scaffold shows the extent of the northern portion of the slab and commencement of the metal deck roof framing.



Project Milestones
The first floor suspended slab was poured continuously and required the Airport Security Gate 1 to be closed for most of the day to allow access to over 90 concrete trucks onto the site. The photo below shows concrete placement at approximately the half way point of the pour. Quality and time performance targets for the day were achieved successfully.

Check-in Hall Progress
The main check-in hall area and overall form of the building is clearly evident from this photo. Services to the check-in area are progressing with the main external structural elements on the northern side being close to completion. End wall cladding is being installed and weather proofing of the terminal to this elevation will progress over the next 3 weeks.
