Ethiopian Airlines to launch daily non-stop flights to Beijing

ADDIS ABABA, March 22 (Xinhua) -- Ethiopian Airlines said on Tuesday that it will introduce daily non-stop services from the capital Addis Ababa to Beijing, China as of May 2011.

The non-stop direct flight has been made possible with the introduction of the airlines brand new ultra-modern Boeing 777 airplane, Ethiopian Airlines said.

The new non-stop flights will shave almost three hours off the current flight time on the route and link Beijing with dozens of countries in Africa via Ethiopia's hub at Addis Ababa.

Ethiopian Airlines Senior Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer Gobena Mikael said with daily non-stop services to Beijing, 10 weekly services to the Chinese southern city Guangzhou, and with four and five weekly services to Hong Kong and Hangzhou respectively , Ethiopian Airlines will be able to offer more links between Africa and China than any other carrier.

With a total of 26 weekly services to China, once again Ethiopian Airlines reaffirms its undisputed leading position in connecting Africa and China, he said.

According to the official, the route supports the ever- increasing bond between China and Africa in terms of investment as well as tourist traffic.

Ethiopian Airlines has code share agreements with Air China, a Star Alliance member, allowing passengers to have wider choice of services between Asia and Africa.

Under the agreement, the two carriers jointly provide services to and from Addis Ababa- Guangzhou and Addis Ababa-Beijing.

Besides the daily non-stop passenger services, Ethiopian provides cargo charter services to and from China for business people.

China province detects radiation from Japan plane -report

BEIJING, March 24 (Reuters) - Local authorities in China's northeastern province of Liaoning detected higher than normal radiation levels on a Japanese cargo plane that arrived in the port city of Dalian a week ago, state news agency Xinhua reported late on Wednesday.

The Dalian Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau measured a radiation level of 2.2 microsieverts per hour, or 22 times higher than normal, from the plane's cargo, Xinhua said, citing a spokesman from the agency.

Despite the higher radiation levels authorities said they did not turn the plane away.

The plane left after it landed "because of a tight schedule," Xinhua quoted a spokesman with Liaoning Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau as saying.

Media reported earlier that an All Nippon Airways cargo plane arrived at Dalian on March 16 from an airport near Tokyo but was denied entry due to excessive radiation detected from its cargo, according to Xinhua.

The International Atomic Energy Agency said the overall situation at the quake-crippled Fukushima nuclear plant 250 km (150 miles) north of Tokyo remained serious despite some positive developments. Some countries have started blocking imports of produce from Japan, fearful of radiation contamination.

Delta Air Delays China Service As CEO Visits Tokyo
25 March 2011
(c) 2011 Dow Jones & Company, Inc.

Delta Air Lines Inc. (DAL) will delay the launch of a new service from Tokyo Narita to Guangzhou, China, Chief Executive Richard Anderson said during a visit to the Japanese capital.

The largest overseas carrier in Japan is cutting capacity to and through its Tokyo hub by 15% to 20% through May after traffic fell in the wake of the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear alert. Delta has continued Tokyo flights though suspended the recently introduced service to the city's downtown Haneda airport.

It warned this week that the Japanese crisis could reduce profits this year by $250 million to $400 million.

"Japan is critical to Delta Air Lines," said Anderson in his weekly staff address, recorded during a three-day visit to Tokyo.

"By and large we're going to operate our full schedule out of Narita," he said, though some flights may be cancelled or run with smaller aircraft.

The new service to Guangzhou from its Tokyo hub was due to start on April 6.

Anderson praised Delta's staff and said senior executives would continue to coordinate its response from Tokyo, with Ed Bastian, president, due to travel to the city next week.

He said staff flying into the country--himself included--were carrying an extra bag on the inbound flight with essentials such as rice and batteries to counter supply shortages.

Deutsche Lufthansa AG (LHA.XE), the largest European operator into Japan by capacity, on Thursday restarted its Tokyo services, though it is flying via Seoul to minimize staff downtime in the Japanese capital.

China Southern Airlines Profit Surges as Economic Rebound Revives Travel
By Neil Denslow - Mar 29, 2011 12:29 AM
Bloomberg

China Southern Airlines Co., the nation’s biggest carrier, boosted profit almost 18-fold last year as renewed global economic growth spurred travel and freight demand.

Net income climbed to 5.8 billion yuan ($883 million) in 2010, from 330 million yuan a year earlier, the Guangzhou-based company said in Hong Kong stock exchange filing yesterday. That compares with the 5.7 billion yuan average of 15 analyst estimates compiled by Bloomberg. Sales increased 40 percent to 76.5 billion yuan.

The airline’s passenger numbers climbed 15 percent last year as worldwide travel rebounded from the global recession and as rising wages in China stoked domestic demand. The nation will probably lead a 32 percent jump in global passenger traffic in the five years ending 2014, according to the International Air Transport Association.

China Southern, which flew 76.5 million passengers last year, also benefited from the yuan’s 3.4 percent appreciation against last year, which pared the value of dollar-denominated debts built up from buying Boeing Co. and Airbus SAS planes.

The carrier earns 80 percent of revenue in yuan, while 90 percent of debt is denominated in the U.S. currency, Jim Wong and Shirley Lam, analysts at Nomura International (HK) Ltd., wrote in a March 7 report. The airline will probably be the biggest beneficiary of domestic demand and an estimated 5.6 percent appreciation of the yuan this year, they said.

Air China Ltd. (753), the world’s largest carrier by market value, and China Eastern Airlines Corp., will probably also post rising profits when they report this week.

China Southern’s 2011 profit may fall to 4.5 billion yuan, according to the average of 15 analyst estimate compiled by Bloomberg. Jet kerosene prices have risen 27 percent this year in Singapore to $132.50 a barrel, according to Bloomberg data.

China Southern fell 2.5 percent to HK$3.52 in Hong Kong trading yesterday, before the earnings announcement. In Shanghai, China Southern slipped 0.1 percent to 8.27 yuan.

Of 22 analysts tracked by Bloomberg in the past 12 months, 11 recommended that investors “buy” China Southern’s Hong Kong-listed stock, seven had “hold” ratings and the remainder said “sell.”

China Southern Airlines: plan to buy 6 Boeing 777 freighters
29 March 2011

BEIJING, Mar. 29 (Xinhua) - China's largest airline firm by fleet size China Southern Airlines (ZNH.NYSE; 01055.HK; 600029.SH) said on Tuesday it planned to buy six Boeing 777 freighters, without disclosing further detailed information.

The company also said it would consider using fuel hedging instruments when necessary, but no such action has been taken so far.

The air carrier projects 20.4 billion yuan of annual capital spending this year.

The company on Monday posted 5.8 billion yuan of net profits for 2010, surging 1,423.62 percent year on year, thanks to expanded demand and one-off capital gains.

US Schedules Aviation Talks With China In August
30 March 2011
Copyright (c) 2011, Dow Jones & Company, Inc.

The U.S. will hold another round of talks with China in August aimed at moving closer to an open-skies aviation agreement, a senior State Department official said Tuesday.

The two sides last met in June 2010 as they continued efforts to lift restrictions on passenger and cargo flights between the countries stemming from a 1980 accord.

The U.S. continues to pursue an open-skies deal with China, said Jose Fernandez, the State Department's assistant secretary for economic, energy and business affairs.

Fernandez, speaking to reporters as the department marked the milestone of reaching open-skies deals with 100 countries, also cited ongoing efforts to conclude pacts with Mexico, Russia, South Africa and the Dominican Republic.

The U.S.-China deal has been amended three times since 1980, each allowing more flights between the countries. Both sides haven't taken up all of their allotted flights.

The U.S. last week signed an open-skies deal with Brazil, but unlike most of its predecessors it will be phased in over a number of years.

'It's not ideal,' Fernandez said of deals that included a phased approach. 'We aim for fully open skies from day one.'

Nanjing-Wuhan high-speed rail out-competes airlines, routes cancelled
16:35, March 31, 2011

All flights between Nanjing and Wuhan were canceled starting from March 27 because of strong competition from high-speed rail. This is the first time that high-speed rail has forced airlines to cancel flights on the same route.

The Hefei-Wuhan High-speed Passenger Railway opened in 2009. With a speed of 250 kilometers per hour, it cuts the journey time between the two cities to three hours. Three trains run on this route every day, and a ticket for a second-class seat only costs 180 yuan, so its occupancy rate is often above 90 percent.

By contrast, the occupancy rates of the flights between the two cities, operated by Lucky Air and China Southern Airlines, have plunged below 50 percent since the railway opened. A full-price air ticket for this route costs 730 yuan (excluding fuel surcharges and airport construction fees), and their flights incurred losses almost every time, except on holidays.

The airlines had taken many measures to improve the situation in the past two years, including offering tickets at 80 percent off the full price, but the occupancy rate remained low, partly because the airports at the two cities are too far from the city proper. Sometimes, there were only around 30 passengers on a flight.

The two airlines said that after the Nanjing South Railway Station for the Beijing-Shanghai High-speed Railway is put into operation in the third quarter of this year, there will be more high-speed trains running between Wuhan and Nanjing, and the number of air passengers will continue to drop. Therefore, it is the right time for them to quit the market.

Actually, the situation of road passenger transportation is also not good. A long-distance bus without any passengers departed from the Jinjiadun Terminal at 7 p.m. on March 30. The driver said the bus to Nanjing had not received any passengers for several days.

The Hubei Highway Transport Corporation said that collinear flights and long-distance buses have no competitive advantages. They have stopped their long-distance bus from Wuhan to Shanghai and only operated on the eastern line. Hubei Highway Transport Corporation's volume of passenger traffic decreased more than 200,000 passengers per year resulting in a loss of more than 30 million yuan per year.

Officials from the Wuhan Transportation Commission said that the competition between railway, highway and aviation has turned white-hot and passengers have become the prime beneficiary of the competition. Passengers can now choose based on their specific travel circumstances.

For example, Wuhan-to-Guangzhou travelers can choose high-speed rail if they value speed and time. Passengers can choose aviation if they value speed or they can also choose regular trains and long-distance bus if they want to save money and do not care about the time.

For the first time in 23 years, Wuhan airport traffic decreased during the Spring Festival season

http://news.cnhubei.com/ctjb/ctjbsgk...t1656916.shtml

Quote:
武汉市春运办提供的资料显示,2011年春运期间,武汉三大火车站共发送旅客513.9万人次,同比增长10.42%。其中,武汉高铁旅客的平均上座率比去年同期增长60%以上,节后出行高峰期的增幅同比更是翻番。而天河机场发送旅客67.77万人次,同比下降8.52%。武汉春运航空客运量23年来首次出现下滑。

According to Wuhan authorities, during the 2011 Spring Festival season, three main railway stations in Wuhan handled 5.139 million passengers, an increase of 10.42% compared to last season. Average ridership of HSR increased by 60%, and doubled during peak days after Lunar New Year. Tianhe Airport handled 677.7 thousand passengers, a decrease of 8.52%. This is the first time that Wuhan airport traffic decreased in the past 23 years.

yeah many flyers turn to HSR instead, and I believe it is going to be tougher for Wuhan Tianhe Airport once Beijing-Wuhan HSR is completed. Last year Wuhan Tianhe Airport only had an increase of 3% in passenger volume, the slowest growing among the top 20 in mainland because Wuhan-Guangzhou HSR was introduced in late 2009. Now it is losing more passengers to HSRs.

But I am not sure if this would apply to other cities. Wuhan is kinda located in the center of China (not necessarily the geographic center), so the distances between Wuhan and most big cities give HSR competitive advantage over air travel. Overall, the Chinese aviation market is growing at a fast pace.
