I'm at PVG right now-- An EVA B744 just passed by the window. First time I've seen a Taiwanese carrier in mainland China. A nice sight.

I've got a cross-straits aviation thread in this section if you'd like to read up on more information on China-Taiwan aviation relations. A while back I posted some photos of flights as well.

Thanks, man. I'm well aware of the fact that operations have started from either side of the strait, but having spent a lot of time at mainland airports it was certainly a pleasant surprise to actually see a Taiwanese carrier with my own eyes yesterday.

Juneyao Airlines Plans Routes To Hong Kong And Macau In 2009

July 29, 2009 | Print | Email Email | Category: Industry News

Becoming China's first private airline to operate overseas routes, Shanghai-based Juneyao Airlines has announced that the company is planning to launch flights to Hong Kong and Macau.

The board chairman of Juneyao Airlines, Wang Junjin, said the company had already applied for the qualification to launch international routes to the General Administration of Civil Aviation of China, and it is expected to acquire the qualification to run Hong Kong and Macau routes in 2009. Subsequently Juneyao Airlines will open international routes to Southeast Asia, Japan and South Korea.

Juneyao Airlines recently took delivery of its first self-owned aircraft, an Airbus A320, which will operate the new routes the company will launch this summer and autumn.

As a wholly-owned subsidiary of Juneyao Group flying since September 2006, Juneyao Airlines now operates over 30 domestic routes departing from Shanghai.

^ Shanghai Airlines is already quite a low cost alternative for Hong Kong - Pudong. Wonder how much lower they can go? China Eastern is also quite cheap already as well!

China's Spring Air to expand fleet to 100 jets

SHANGHAI, July 29 (Reuters) - Privately run Chinese carrier Spring Airlines aims to boost its fleet of aircraft to 100 by 2015 from just 13 now, and is only looking at adding planes from the Airbus A320 family, its chairman said on Wednesday.

Spring Airlines plans to list its shares in Shanghai in the second half of next year to help fund aircraft purchases, Wang Zhenghua told reporters on the sidelines of an event to celebrate the carrier's fourth anniversary.

"We are talking to underwriters and financial advisers now and we want to have two or three eventually help handle our A-share IPO," Wang said.

He declined to give a fund raising target but said the carrier could have a market capitalisation of 8 billion yuan ($1.17 billion), citing an estimate provided by Citigroup in 2006.

Spring Air owns only one of its 13 planes currently in operation, but it may own as many as 30 of its aircraft in 2015 when it has a much bigger fleet, he added.

China's airline industry was hit hard last year as the global financial crisis dented air travel demand. The country's three major carriers, including Air China and China Eastern Airlines , all racked up hefty losses.

But domestic air traffic has been picking up since the beginning of the year, with June air passenger volume rising 24.6 percent to 17.72 million, the fastest growth rate in at least three years, according to official data.

From January to June, Spring Air carried 1.62 million passengers, up 40 percent from a year earlier. Its net profit tripled to 41.17 million yuan, with sales up 20 percent at 894 million yuan, company data showed.

For the full year, net profit is estimated at roughly 100 million yuan, up sharply from 21.04 million yuan in 2008, Wang said.

Spring Air, which provides domestic service only, recently received regulatory approval to launch flights to neighbouring countries and regions, including Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, Russia and Southeast Asia.

The only other non-state Chinese carrier permitted to fly out of mainland China is East Star Airlines, which filed for bankruptcy protection in June after it was grounded by the aviation regulator in March.

Wang did not say when the carrier would start offering international flights. ($1=6.830 Yuan)

No Fuel Surcharge Notice For Domestic Air Routes -Indus Exec
30 July 2009

BEIJING (Dow Jones)--Airline industry officials Thursday said they haven't received notice of any fuel surcharge, after local media reported that China would reinstate surcharges on domestic routes effective Aug. 1.

'The possibility of the fuel surcharge is small,' said an executive in China Southern Airlines Co.'s (ZNH) public relations department, who asked not to be named, adding that regulators usually give more than a couple days' notice for fuel surcharge changes.

Online travel agency Ctrip.com hasn't received notice of a fuel surcharge either, a person in the company's media relations department said.

Yangcheng Evening News reported Thursday, without citing sources, that a surcharge of CNY20 will be levied on routes shorter than 800 kilometers, while for routes 800 kilometers and above, the surcharge will be CNY40.

Regulators had eliminated the fuel surcharge for domestic flights Jan. 15 following a drop in jet fuel prices and amid weak travel demand.

Based on a new oil product pricing mechanism announced in December, China hiked the ex-factory price of jet fuel by CNY1,030 a metric ton, or 26%, to CNY5,050 ($739) in late June, but the price was cut by CNY280 to CNY4,770 Wednesday.

The National Development and Reform Commission's new system allows domestic fuel prices to be adjusted when the moving average of a crude basket changes by more than 4% over a period of 22 working days.

Regulator To Decide On China Eastern,Shanghai Air Merger-Report
3 August 2009

BEIJING (Dow Jones)--China's aviation regulator is likely to issue its decision this month on a proposed merger between China Eastern Airlines Corp. (CEA) and its smaller rival Shanghai Airlines Co. (600591.SH), the Shanghai Securities News reported, citing an unnamed person familiar with the situation.

The two airlines jointly submitted a merger application to the Civil Aviation Authority of China, the paper reported Saturday.

The airlines have to receive approval from various government departments, including the aviation regulator, before they can proceed with the merger.

Chinese air passenger numbers up 20.4 pct

BEIJING, Aug 4 (Reuters) - Chinese airlines' passenger numbers increased by 20.4 percent in the first half of the year compared with a year ago, state television said on Tuesday.

At the start of the year the national aviation regulator targeted an 11 percent growth in passenger volumes in 2009.

Given the strong first half, the full-year pace is now expected to be more than 20 percent, an official from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) was quoted as saying.

The official also said that the increase in passengers in the first half was the fastest in the world.

As in other countries, airline passenger numbers fell last year in China because of the slowing economy. An accelerating economic recovery this year has boosted Chinese carriers, with the nation's top airlines, including Air China , posting profits in the first half.

China Eastern to push Shanghai Air merger in H2

SHANGHAI, Aug 10 (Reuters) - China Eastern Airlines said on Monday it would actively push ahead with its acquisition of smaller rival Shanghai Airlines in the second half of the year but warned of an uncertain industry outlook.

China Eastern, one of the country's top three carriers, also said it earned a net profit in the first half of the year of 984.65 million yuan ($144 million) under international accounting standards, turning around from 212.50 million yuan net loss a year earlier, helped largely by fuel-hedging gains.

The carrier did not provide earnings guidance for the rest of the year but warned about uncertainties continuing to face the industry, including weak international air traffic and the lingering impact of the H1N1 flu virus.

Board Secretary Luo Zhuping said in April, however, that the carrier had a chance to return to the black for the full year with a pick-up in domestic air travel.

China Eastern unveiled a detailed plan last month to acquire Shanghai Air via a 9 billion yuan share swap that will give them roughly half of the air travel market in China's financial hub.

Monday's statement gave no timeframe for completing the deal.

Rivals Air China and China Southern Airlines already control about 50 percent of the market in their home bases in Beijing and Guangzhou.

During the six-month period, China Eastern carried 20.79 million passengers, up 14.78 percent from a year earlier with help from a recovering domestic economy, but its cargo volume fell 8.13 percent as the global economic downturn continued to weigh on foreign trade, it said.

Its fuel-hedging contracts in the first six months yielded a mark-to-market gain of 2.79 billion yuan, compared with a 451 million yuan gain in the year-ago period.

Under domestic accounting standards, China Eastern's first-half net profit was 1.17 billion yuan, up from 41.62 million yuan.

China's airlines faced strong headwinds last year as a slowing economy hit demand for air travel, pushing the three biggest carriers into a combined loss of more than $4 billion.

But domestic air traffic has resumed its normal growth pattern this year, as Beijing's aggressive economic stimulus package lifted consumer confidence.

The country's air passenger volume rose 24.6 percent to 17.72 million in June, the fastest growth rate in at least three years, according to official data.

Big Chinese state carriers also received cash aid from the government to ease their operating woes. China Eastern's state parent has received 9 billion yuan in government aid since December, of which 7 billion yuan was injected into the listed unit through a share placement.

China airport head executed for graft: report
7 August 2009
Agence France Presse

The former head of the company that owns Beijing Capital International Airport was executed Friday, convicted of bribery and embezzlement totalling nearly 16 million dollars, state media reported.

Li Peiying, former chairman and general manager of Capital Airports Holding Company (CAH), which also operates numerous other airports throughout China, was put to death in the eastern city of Jinan, Xinhua news agency said.

He was put to death after the Supreme People's Court upheld his sentence, according to the agency.

Li, 60, was convicted in February of accepting bribes totalling 26.61 million yuan (3.9 million dollars) and embezzling 82.5 million yuan while in his post from 1995 to 2003.

CAH, which is under the Civil Aviation Administration of China, is a major state-owned enterprise.

The group has more than 30 airports, including the flagship Beijing Capital International Airport, manages assets of more than 100 billion yuan and has more than 38,000 staff.

Massive corruption has emerged as one of the greatest scourges attending China's economic resurgence in the past three decades and the Communist Party often hands down harsh sentences to show it is serious about the problem.

China airline's crisis may scrap Shanghai flights to Japan
Kyodo News

SHANGHAI, Aug. 10 -- Flights connecting Shanghai in China and Japanese regional destinations may be scrapped or cut back as Shanghai-based China Eastern Airlines finds itself in the midst of a business crisis.

Local Japanese governments are making all-out efforts to keep the carrier flying to their cities since speculation is rife that it may review its unprofitable routes.

The state-run Chinese airline began flying to Japanese local airports under the Chinese government's strategy to make Shanghai Asia's hub airport. It provides flight services to 16 local airports in Japan.

In late July, the Fukushima prefectural government held a ceremony at a Shanghai hotel, inviting Chinese tourism officials to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the airline's flights to Japan's northeastern prefecture.

At the ceremony, Fukushima Gov. Yuhei Sato called for more Chinese tourists to visit Fukushima, saying they would be enthralled by the prefecture through exchanges with locals.

The airline currently operates two round-trip flights a week between Shanghai and Fukushima. The flights had an average seat-occupancy rate of about 40 percent in fiscal 2008 that ended March 31. But the airline asked the prefectural government to boost the seat-occupancy rate to more than 60 percent.

The local government also conducted a group sightseeing tour for Chinese to Fukushima this year and offered a subsidy of more than 20,000 yen per participant.

At Shizuoka airport, which opened in June, the average seat-occupancy rate for the airline's flights to Shanghai was around 40 percent at the end of that month.

On the Shanghai-Nagasaki route, the average seat-occupancy rate plunged to the 20 percent level in May due to a sharp fall in the number of Chinese tourists. The Nagasaki prefectural government plans to invite China Eastern executives to call on them to continue flights between the two cities, which will mark their 30th anniversary in September.

Shanghai gets green light for Pudong airport bonded zone

SHANGHAI, Aug. 8 (Xinhua) -- The State Council, or Cabinet, has given approval for a bonded area for Pudong International Airport, a local official said Saturday.

Jiang Liang, governor of the Pudong New Area, told reporters that the tax-free zone covers an area of about 4 square kilometers.

Chen Xuyuan, president of Shanghai International Port (Group) Co., said the move will help promote Shanghai to build itself into an international center of shipping.

Pudong now has two harbors, one airport and three bonded areas.

The Pudong International Airport handled 2.63 million tonnes of cargo last year, ranking third in the world.

China Eastern, others sued over 2004 plane crash: state media
12 August 2009
Agence France Presse

Relatives of 32 passengers killed in a 2004 plane crash in China have sued China Eastern Airlines and three foreign firms, demanding millions of dollars in compensation, state media reported Wednesday.

They demanded China Eastern, Canadian aircraft maker Bombardier Inc. and one of its subsidiaries, and US conglomerate General Electric pay 123 million yuan (18 million dollars) in compensation, the Beijing News said.

They also asked the companies to publicise details of the cause of the accident, apologise in national media, and build a monument at the scene to honour the dead, it said.

A Beijing court on Tuesday agreed to hear the lawsuit, the first time a Chinese court would hear a collective suit over an air crash, the report said.

The Shanghai-bound Bombardier CRJ-200LR jet operated by China Eastern plunged into an icy lake near Baotou Airport in Inner Mongolia shortly after take-off on November 21, 2004, killing 47 passengers, six crew and two people on the ground.

The Chinese carrier in 2004 agreed to pay 211,000 yuan (31,000 dollars) for every dead passenger. But families of the 32 victims deemed the compensation was too low and refused to accept it, previous Chinese media reports said.

In 2005 they brought the companies to a US court, which ruled the case should be tried in China, the Beijing News said.

They then submitted the suit to two Chinese courts in 2007, but both refused to hear it, it added.

The compensation for an air crash fatality averaged 1.5 million dollars in the United States, the report said, citing Hao Junbo, lawyer for the relatives.

Singapore low-cost carrier Jetstar to fly to China's Haikou

www.chinaview.cn 2009-08-26 00:38:34

SINGAPORE, Aug. 25 (Xinhua) -- Singapore low-cost carrier Jetstar will make its first flight to Haikou, the capital of China's Hainan Province, local media reported on Tuesday.

According to TV broadcaster Channel NewsAsia, the carrier will fly four times a week between Singapore and Haikou from December.

Currently, Jetstar Asia only offers double daily flights from Singapore to China's Hong Kong and up to five times a week to China's Macao.

The carrier's chief executive officer Chong Phit Lian said that Haikou had long been in the carrier's sights for both its appeal to the large Hainanese community living in Singapore and the broader group of Asian holiday makers.

This is Jetstar's 19th destination from Singapore, and the carrier said that it's looking at expansion in the Chinese market.
