More Slots For Chinese Carriers At Kansai, Chubu Airports
21 January 2011

OSAKA (Nikkei)--The Transport Ministry on Thursday revealed plans to expand landing and takeoff slots for Chinese airlines at two major airports in western Japan.

All 189 weekly slots awarded to Chinese routes at Kansai International Airport and Central Japan International Airport are already in use. The ministry aims to provide more slots if it receives applications from Chinese carriers.

The news came from a senior ministry official at a meeting for consultation with local officials on merger plans for Kansai airport and Osaka International Airport, also known as Itami airport.

"We believe that Chinese airline companies are interested in adding 40-50 weekly flights into and out of Kansai International Airport," an official at the airport operator said. Increasing flights would help the debt-saddled airport.

As part of efforts to pay back its roughly 1.3 trillion yen in debt, Kansai airport is working toward integrating operations with Itami airport next year and boosting revenue.

In Thursday's meeting, the ministry presented scenarios for fully repaying the debt within 50 years. These looked at a variety of measures, including the sale of operating rights to the private sector.

#CZ | China Southern Airlines

Article from Skytrax,
http://www.airlinequality.com/news/CSHTRN_4str2011.htm

China Southern Airlines quality ranking is upgraded to become a 4-Star Airline

LONDON, UK - 25th January 2011

SKYTRAX today announced that China Southern Airlines quality rating has been upgraded, with the carrier being ranked as a world 4-Star Airline for the 2011 ranking period.

China Southern Airlines becomes only the second airline in mainland China to achieve the 4-Star Airline status,

Talking about the award of the 4-Star Airline ranking to China Southern Airlines, Edward Plaisted (CEO of Skytrax) said ...

"We have been monitoring the changes and general improvement to the China Southern Airlines product and service standards for some time, and during this last quarter they have demonstrated themselves a worthy recipient for the 4-Star Airline status. The launch of new product quality standards for long haul international routes operated by A330 aircraft was a catalyst behind the upgrading of their Star Ranking, and this is something I understand many more China Southern Airlines passengers can look forward to over the coming 2 months. The airline industry in China has moved ahead faster during the past 5-6 years than anywhere else in the world, and this change has not just been a case of new aircraft offering more competitive product. What we have seen is a dramatic improvement in service quality, and a genuine desire by China Southern Airlines to provide a quality of service that can be classified as world-class."


China Southern Airlines fleet is comprised of 342 aircraft, including Boeing 777/757/737 and Airbus A330/321/320/319 and 300 aircraft serving destinations in 162 countries.

China Southern Airlines main hubs are Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport and Beijing Capital International Airport. The airline provides services to 65 international destinations.

CHINA SOUTHERN DOUBLES KATHMANDU FLIGHT NUMBERS
25 January 2011
Copyright 2011 China Daily Information Company. All rights reserved.

Increasing demand from Nepali travelers prompts airline to expand

KATHMANDU, Nepal - China Southern Airlines, a SkyTeam member, has doubled the number of its flights from Kathmandu amid increased demand from tourists, students and business travelers.

The airline has added three more flights a week. Previously there were only 3 flights each week: Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

"Now, the airline will fly every day except Tuesday," said Binod Bogati, station manager of the airline.

He added that the airline has a wide-ranging domestic network and also operates in countries such as South Korea, Japan, Australia and various European destinations.

Bogati confirmed that an increasing number of tourists are visiting, or are looking to visit, Nepal.

In addition, he said that Nepali business travelers and students frequently fly to China.

"The flights had 100 percent occupancy for the four months from September to December," he said, adding that some customers had to use other airlines and pay higher rates because they could not obtain a seat on China Southern's flights.

Bogati said that the increase in the number of flights is a business extension, and an expansion of access for Chinese tourists to Nepal. Also, many Nepali visit China for a variety of reasons.

"Another major reason for the increase in flights is the national program of Nepal Tourism Year 2011", he said.

Bogati said that the company wants to help make the tourism year a success and the additional flights will be one way of achieving that aim.

Talking to Xinhua on Monday, Kamal Regmi, a travel agent, said that the increase in flights means he can easily book cheap fares for customers.

"Our clients are basically business people and Nepali students. The rise in the number of flights will definitely increase our business too, and will provide great support for the Nepal Tourism Year 2011," he added.

More importantly (for me at least), though unofficially, CZ is planning to fly to YVR this summer. It might put a dent on AC & CX YVR-HKG route, AC & CA's YVR-PEK route, and perhaps even MU's YVR-PVG route.

Not that I will probably fly as I like keeping to only Star Alliance airlines (for racking up miles), but I can see many passengers flying over to CAN on CZ, then taking the train down to HKG.

CZ also has flights between CAN and HKG, if I'm not mistaken.

Then again, I never thought that CZ would become a four-star airline, but at least it gives me more reason to fly them again!

Yes, CZ does, but definitely, there are options to take rail (i.e. if you were to stay over in Guangzhou for a few days).

That's the other thing I wonder now... once the highspeed railway open up, will China adjust its visa rules and give exceptions to passengers taking the railway down to HKG.

Air Mauritius to start direct flights to China

PORT LOUIS, Jan 26 (Reuters) - Air Mauritius will fly direct to China from July in a move it hopes will help boost tourism in the Indian Ocean island, which is suffering from the downturn in Europe.

Mauritius is a popular holiday destination, famed for its azure seas, white beaches and luxury spas. But the European economic slowdown has weighed heavily on tourism and the government is keen to develop new Asian markets.

"This flight is a first step in our development in one of the world's fastest growing economies," Andre Viljoen, the airline's acting chief executive, said in a statement.

With this flight, Shanghai will be the 25th destination for the Indian Ocean island's national carrier and its fourth in Asia. Air Mauritius already flies to Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong.

The flight will go via Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia and will offer connections from and to Reunion, Madagascar and South Africa.

Tourism typically generates about 10 percent of Mauritius's gross domestic product with European visitors accounting for some two thirds of arrivals.

Airbus steps up co-op on engineer training in China
26 January 2011
Copyright 2011 China Daily Information Company. All Rights Reserved.

The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), Airbus and two Chinese aviation universities have agreed to continue to work together for a higher level performance engineer training course in China, following the implementation of the Ab Initio Performance Engineer training course, which was launched in 2008.

Airbus provides methodologies, training material and financial support to the intermediate level performance engineer training project while the CAUC and CAFUC jointly develop the courseware and implement the training, according to a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed by the four parties on Jan 24. The courseware should be certified by CAAC.

The course will help produce more qualified performance engineers in China, which are highly in demand as Chinas air traffic industry enjoys rapid growth.

Based on the essential knowledge gained from the first stage of training, the intermediate level training course will enable the trainees to get a higher level understanding of aircraft performance and more advanced knowledge related to aircraft performance.

The content of the intermediate course includes EOSID (engine out standard instrument departure) design, route study and PBN (Performance based navigation).

"The Ab Initio Performance Engineer training course has been a success. The course was welcomed by the trainees and mutual trust has been built among Airbus, CAAC and the universities during the cooperation, which laid a solid foundation for the intermediate level training program and for a more advanced course in the future," said Jin Yibin, Director General of the CAAC Flight Standard Department.

"As China's civil aviation industry enjoys a rapid development, we need more qualified aircraft performance engineers, who will play a key role in ensuring flight safety and improve flight efficiency," he added.

China starts first test of private aircraft in tightly controlled airspace
28 January 2011

BEIJING (AP) - China started the first test flights of private aircraft in its tightly controlled airspace on Friday, responding to pressure to further open its skies as flight paths grow increasingly crowded.

The country's growing rich class also has been eager to buy and fly a new kind of toy: helicopters and private jets.

China's aviation authorities allowed helicopters to fly in low-altitude airspace over the southern island of Hainan, the state-run Xinhua News Agency reported Friday. The test flights, involving four helicopters with the Shanghai-based Zhengyang Investment Group, are expected to continue over the next two months.

China late last year said it would open part of its low-altitude airspace to promote its aviation industry and allow the use of private airplanes. The airspace is controlled by the military and Civil Aviation Administration of China.

Every private flight still needs approval and getting it can take up to a week, Xinhua reported.

Even state media has said restrictions are "stunting" the industry's growth in China.

Some also say the restrictions are affecting air traffic. State media this week reported that the punctuality rate of passenger flights in China fell to 76 percent last year, the lowest rate since 2005.

One aviation expert told the People's Daily newspaper that opening more airspace would help cut delays.

Less than 30 percent of China's airspace is open to civil aviation, Liu Weimin with the Civil Aviation Management Institute of China told the newspaper.
