Chinese Airlines Buck Global Downturn
(WCARN.com/China Daily, July 25)

Quote:
Faced with the global aviation industry downturn, Chinese airlines are being forced to compete among themselves in increasingly innovative ways. In Western Europe and North America, many airlines have recently reported worse-than-expected losses. In China, the country's international carrier Air China saw its profits fall 38 percent last year.

However, two other large airlines -- China Eastern and China Southern, in which the State holds controlling stakes -- still managed to expand using innovative strategies. China Southern Airlines, which claims to be the largest airline by passenger capacities in Asia and the fifth-largest in the world, is leveraging its extensive domestic service network and its transit hub in Guangzhou, to provide customers with a convenient connection between international and domestic services.

At a time when most developed economies are suffering from a lingering crisis, more Chinese people are traveling abroad for tourism and business.

Totally agree, especially comparing with the old one.
With respect to this issue, many Chinese airlines need to upgrade their liveries. Most them are looking like 90-th. IMHO.

Can we avoid cross-posting the same news within the same section? I see the same articles being posted again and again within the aviation realm. Perhaps think about which is the best thread to post - the airport, airline, or country thread?

Tibet Airlines rapidly expands, eyes Katmandu route

LHASA, July 26 (Xinhua) -- A one-year-old airline based in China's Tibet autonomous region is expanding rapidly and eying Katmandu as its first transnational destination, company officials said.

Tibet Airlines on Thursday celebrated its first founding anniversary in Lhasa. The airline, partly controlled by the regional government and the country's flagship carrier, Air China Group, transported 397,000 passengers in the past 12 months, said Cheng Hui, executive director of the board of Tibet Airlines.

The airline now operates a fleet of three, serving 16 daily flights to airports in Tibet autonomous region and four Chinese cities outside the region -- Chengdu, Chongqing, Xining and Lanzhou, Cheng said.

The airline plans to add three aircraft to its fleet every year and open routes to major Chinese cities outside of Tibet as well as an international route to Katmandu in the next three years, he said, adding that the company's ambitious goal is to bridge China's inland with South Asia in the future.

Aviation surcharge 'benefits' country
Shanghai Daily
Aug 1, 2012

THE Civil Aviation Development Fund, formerly known as the Airport Construction Fee, will continue to be charged when air tickets are purchased as it has proven to "benefit the country," China's top civil aviation regulator said yesterday.

Some 83 percent of the fund will be used to build airports while most of the remainder will cover the costs of civil aviation control and management facilities, said Li Jiaxiang, head of the Civil Aviation Administration of China.

A small percentage of the money will also be used to subsidize some international routes that are not as lucrative as domestic ones, Li added.

"Not a single cent of the money has ever been used for any other purposes by any individual or group, including the administration," he told a forum in Beijing.

The charges are 50 yuan (US$7.84) per passenger for domestic routes and 90 yuan for international routes departing from China.

Passengers have challenged the charges as they said the money needed for airport "construction" would have been raised years ago.

Li said most of the world's major airports charge similar construction fees including those in the United States, United Kingdom, France, Canada and Japan.

He added the airport construction fees in these countries are higher than that of China.

China's wealthiest village sets up aviation company

NANJING, Aug. 6 (Xinhua) -- Huaxi village in east China's Jiangsu province confirmed Monday that it has set up Jiangsu Huaxi General Aviation Co., Ltd., the country's first village-run aviation company.

Huaxi, the richest village in China, said the company has formed an operational team of chief pilots and other professionals, said Wu Xie'en, chairman of Jiangsu Huaxi Group Corporation.

The aviation company was approved by the East China Regional Administration of the Civil Aviation Administration of China on July 26, Wu said.

Huaxi's two helicopters -- one manufactured by McDonnell Douglas and the other by Eurocopter -- cost almost 90 million yuan (14.12 million U.S. dollars).

With the two helicopters, the village-run aviation company will mainly offer air travel services for villagers and tourists. Those traveling with the company will need to present identification to make an air travel appointment.

Based on its general aviation airport as the landing point, the helicopters can carry four to six passengers each to catch a bird's eye view of the village and the nearby city of Jiangyin. The flight altitude will remain under 300 meters.

In the 2011-2015 period, Jiangsu Huaxi General Aviation Co., Ltd. will expand its fleet to include five helicopters and one business jet to actively engage in other aviation businesses such as emergency rescue, Wu said.

Moreover, the company is planning to explore more air routes to tourist attractions in Guangzhou, Qingdao and Xiamen, he added.

According to a circular jointly issued by the State Council and the Central Military Commission, China will open part of its low-altitude airspace in an orderly manner to promote the country's general aviation sector.

The village, covering an area of 0.96 square kilometer, has a population of about 1,500.

With steel, textile and tourism as pillar industries, Huaxi was the first Chinese village to generate 10 billion yuan in local gross domestic product in 2003.

The village's current annual per capita income is over 10,000 U.S dollars, and each household has a villa and private cars.

It has become the "backyard" of neighboring cities, as Huaxi sees over 2 million tourist arrivals for leisure and vacation every year.

Passengers Accuse China Eastern of Lax Security over Ticket Date Changes
(Global Times/WCARN.com, Aug. 14)

Quote:
A local passenger, whose flight tickets were apparently rescheduled by another person, has accused China Eastern Airlines (MU) of lax management and security procedures. The airline admitted Monday that there have been similar cases, but said as yet there was no solution to the problem.

A woman, surnamed Guo, had to spend 4,200 yuan (US$660.2) to repurchase return tickets from Kunming, Yunnan Province, to Beijing on July 28, as she was told by the airline her ticket had been changed to August 9, reported the Beijing Morning Post Monday.

Guo was told a man called to reschedule by giving her full name and personal ID card number. MU refused to pay Guo's economic loss on the tickets, according to the report. "The caller was obviously a male, not a female. The airline should ask more questions to prevent the scam," Guo told the Beijing Morning Post.
