继海航集团有限公司日前宣布联手山西航空有限责任公司等企业,拟共同组建云南祥鹏航空有限责任公司后,昨日民航总局传出消息,民营性质的昆明航空有限公司筹建申请已经通过民航西南地区管理局的初审。而在一年多前,英安航空公司即宣称自己驻扎云南。

根据民航总局公示,拟筹建的昆明航空有限公司注册资本为8000万元,由云南中恒创新投资有限公司和自然人王清民、王晖共同出资。其中云南中恒创新投资有限公司现金出资3200万元,占注册资本的40%;王清民现金出资3200万元,占注册资本的40%;王晖现金出资1600万元,占注册资本的20%。而王清民即为云南中恒创新投资有限公司的总经理。据披露,云南中恒创新投资有限公司注册地在云南省昆明市,注册资本为2000万元,主要从事项目的投资和管理。

昆明航空公司将以昆明巫家坝国际机场作为自己的基地机场,主要经营范围是国内支线航空客货运输业务。但民航总局的公示并未披露昆明航空公司的飞机来源,业内人士分析,该公司很可能是通过租赁飞机的方式运营。

而在一年多以前,同样民营背景的云南英安航空有限公司则高调登台。

2004年1月8日,英安航空公司即宣称自己将成为除东航云南公司外驻云南的第二家航空公司,以小飞机主打支线次支线市场。

英安航空的投资方为广东英安运输服务有限公司,据英安航空董事长黎桂英女士介绍,英安运输服务公司自1994年起已在云南做了10年的民航客货运输。主要以向大航空公司包机的形式运作,经营昆明、西双版纳、丽江与北京、广州间的航线。

祥鹏、昆明、英安这些接二连三宣称杀入云南市场的航空公司,主要都瞄准了云南省内的支线客货运市场。

作为旅游大省,云南航空市场发展迅猛。据民航总局统计数据,2004年昆明机场的旅客吞吐量达到979.73万人,位居全国第七,同比增加了31.8%;起落飞机92385架次,位居全国第八,同比增长17.4%。

云南省内旅游资源丰富,省外游客往往需要穿梭于昆明、丽江、大理等几个主要旅游景点之间,而云南省内公路和铁路运输不便,为短途支线飞行创造了非常大的需求。据统计,云南省内支线约占到东航云南公司总航班量的45%。

迅速扩张的市场催生了专注于支线飞行的航空公司,英安航空就宣称:自己的经营模式初期主要针对游客的需求,开展省内景点间的短途飞行,这既满足了中短途航空的需要,同时又避开与三大航空集团的干线飞行直接竞争。

此外,支线航空公司还将目光投向了国外市场。随着中国东盟自由贸易区的建立,出境游日益方便,支线航空公司将可以依托云南对东南亚地区的区位优势,开展短途出境观光航线,为云南旅游资源与东盟各国旅游资源的对接提供方便,也为云南航空市场注入多元化的因素。

China Southern loss doubles on fleet expansion
Alman Loong
28 April 2006
Hong Kong Standard

China Southern Airlines, the country's largest carrier by fleet size, said its first- quarter net loss more than doubled as it approved a plan to buy more assets.

The Guangzhou-based carrier said net loss in the first three months was 665 million yuan (HK$643.25 million), compared with a loss of 285 million yuan a year ago despite revenue rising 13 percent to 9.4 billion yuan from 8.3 billion yuan.

The figures are based on mainland accounting standards.

China Southern also said its board has approved a proposal to acquire its parent's unit, China Southern Airlines Group (Hainan), as it aims to expand the asset size.

The listed carrier will pay 5.15 million yuan in cash to its parent company and 350 million yuan to the unit's creditors. The parent company, China Southern Airlines Group, acquired the unit last year as part of a deal to buy China Northern Airlines.

China Southern said in a statement that total assets of the unit were valued at 355.15 million yuan at the end of June 2005, consisting mainly of 103.02 million yuan in cash, 55.11 million yuan in bills and trade receivables, and 160.97 million yuan worth of airplanes.

In the same period, its debts stood at 350 million yuan, including airplane repair expenses, jet fuel and takeoff and landing fees, which will be paid directly by China Southern to the creditors.

China Southern, which is due to report its 2006 first-quarter earnings today, posted a net loss of 1.85 billion yuan last year amid rising fuel costs and stiff competition in the domestic aviation market.

``As the listed company keeps on acquiring its parent's high-debt assets, it will have negative impact on its operating business,'' said South China Brokage analyst Andes Cheng.

He said it will be difficult for China Southern to return to profit until 2010 because of its fast fleet expansion, while stiff competition will erode its margins.

Meanwhile, China Southern has hired BNP Paribas, Calyon Corporate and Investment Bank and Societe Generale to arrange a US$450 million (HK$3.51 billion) loan to finance 10 aircraft, market sources said.

The 10-year loan will cover six A320-200s and four Boeing 737-700s, with the first to be received in June.

The company chose French banks in order to a use a French tax lease, which can reduce a company's taxable income and lower financing costs by half, market sources said.

The sources said the loan covers 80 percent of the US$540 million purchase price of the 10 aircraft.

The company is also seeking finance for three additional A320s, market sources said.

China's Hainan Air Q1 net falls, fuel prices weigh

SHANGHAI, April 29 (Reuters) - China's Hainan Airlines Co. Ltd. , partly owned by billionaire financier George Soros, saw its net profits fall 11.7 percent in the first quarter as higher fuel prices squeezed margins.

The Chinese carrier, based in the sun-drenched southern resort island of Hainan, booked a net profit of 12.09 million yuan from January through March, versus a net profit of 13.69 million yuan a year earlier, it said in a statement carried in the official Shanghai Securities News on Saturday.

For the full year 2005, it swung to a net loss of 215.82 million yuan from a net profit of 90.65 million yuan a year earlier, far lagging a forecast given by the chairman of the listed company's parent earlier this year.

Chairman Chen Feng had told Reuters that he expected 2005 earnings to come at between $10 million and $12 million. If not for a soaring fuel bill, it could hit $40 million, he added.

Hainan Air, mainland China's number-four carrier, mainly flies to domestic destinations, but has expanded its network to include Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Osaka and Budapest.

Other Chinese airlines, such as China Eastern Airlines Ltd. , have also fallen victim to high oil prices.

Hainan, which plans to change its name to Grand China Air after absorbing three smaller rivals, expects to list its shares in Hong Kong at some point in 2007 at the latest, Chen said in February.

Grand China Air has raised $420 million in an initial private placement and share sale, and is hoping to raise another $250 million.

Hainan Air's yuan-denominated A shares -- open to select foreign investors -- rose more than 9 percent in the first quarter, slightly underperforming the market's <.SSEC> 12 percent gain. ($1=8.014 yuan)

Cool. Are Shanghai Airlines and Air China linked in anyway? And am I the only person that doesn't like the font of Air China, or the logo?

Chinese airlines in the red after first quarter

BEIJING, May 22, 2006 (AFP) - Chinese airlines posted total losses of 2.14 billion yuan (267 million dollars) in the first quarter 2006 due to high jet fuel prices, state press reported Monday.

Although China's air travel market is booming, with passenger numbers, as well as cargo and mail traffic, expected to double by 2010 from last year, airlines continue to suffer major losses.

"The main reason for these losses was the raising of prices of fuel prices," the Beijing Times reported quoting the Civil Aviation Authority of China (CAAC).

China Eastern, one of the country's three biggest airlines, in April reported a net loss of 467.31 million yuan for 2005, blaming higher aviation fuel and other operational costs, a sharp turnaround from 2004.

Only three smaller regional companies -- Shenzhou, Xiamen and Hainan Airlines -- recorded profits, the newspaper said.

At the end of the first quarter, China owned 883 planes and is forecast to nearly double the fleet by 2010.
