Air China's new B747-8 lands
8 January 2015
China Daily Excerpt

Air China's new Boeing 747-8 aircraft made its international debut on the Beijing-New York route, arriving at JFK on Wednesday.

The 13-hour flight will run once a day between Beijing and New York.

At the in-cabin reception, Zhou Yuelong, general manager of Air China New York, spoke with guests and the media.

"We are pleased that our Beijing headquarters has chosen New York for the international launch of the B747-8," Zhou said.

"The B747-8 is the first aircraft in Air China's fleet with a four-cabin configuration," he explained. "This is significant as this provides travelers from New York and other neighboring cities to China and beyond with more options."

Liu Yi, counselor of the economic and commercial office of China's Consulate General of China in New York, congratulated Air China on behalf of Zhang Qiyue, consul general of China in New York.

In a congratulatory letter, Zhang wrote: "As one of the biggest airline companies in China, Air China makes momentous efforts in connecting China and US economic trade and culture communication."

Xue Yaping, director of the China National Tourist Office (CNTO) in New York, said the extension of tourist visas between the US and China from one year to 10 years will provide a huge boost to the travel industries of both countries.

Jet closer to market-entry clearance
Updated: 2015-01-09 07:20
China Daily Europe Excerpt

Domestic aircraft first assessed by local officials using global airworthiness standards for large plane

Guo Yanghui, an engineer for aircraft manufacturer Commercial Aircraft Corp of China, has lived in Xi'an for four years.

His son was born in the capital of Shaanxi province in August. The 32-year-old plans to move his family to a new apartment he bought in Shanghai, where COMAC has its headquarters, but he doesn't know when they can move there.

"I work where my aircraft is located," he says.

Guo is a member of COMAC's field test team for the Advanced Regional Jet of the 21st century, or the ARJ21, the first regional jet developed by China.

The aircraft, which holds up to 90 seats, made its maiden flight in 2008.

Both its manufacturer and the Chinese aviation authorities had worked hard since then to certify the plane's airworthiness.

Guo and his colleagues provided technical support for the ARJ21's airworthiness certification tests in Yanliang district in Xi'an, which is known as a hub for Chinese aircraft manufacturing.

On Dec 30, the Civil Aviation Administration of China certified the ARJ21. COMAC's field test team will now be reduced from more than 200 members to about 100 in line with the manufacturer's plans.

It is the first time the CAAC has awarded a domestically made aircraft an airworthiness certification based on the CCAR-25-R3 regulation, which is equivalent to international airworthiness standards for large passenger aircraft.

Airworthiness is a measure of an aircraft's suitability for safe flight, and receiving certification means the ARJ21 meets the authority's safety requirements for a passenger aircraft.

The certification is also seen as a green light for the aircraft to enter the market.

The authority examines the aircraft's safety on behalf of passengers, says Shen Xiaoming, head of the airworthiness certification center of CAAC's East China bureau and director of CAAC's ARJ21 airworthiness certification team.

Just as with other crucial departments, the experts and engineers who work on the certification are responsible for the aircraft's airworthiness for its full operating life.

But without previous experience, the authority did not even know how to design the tests, he says, as the regulations only specified desired outcomes.

Thus, it took a long time for the authority to design every test from scratch, Shen says.

"The authority's capital and resources for airworthiness certification are limited," he says.

CAAC has two airworthiness certification centers, with the Shanghai center assessing transport aircraft based on the CCAR-25 regulation, while the center in Shenyang, Liaoning province, assesses general aviation aircraft based on the CCAR-23 regulation.

Currently, 275 employees of CAAC work on airworthiness certification, Shen says.

Generally speaking, certifying an aircraft's airworthiness requires a team of 80 employees, but CAAC has fewer than 70 people assessing the C919, an even larger passenger aircraft, he says.

The government is aware of the issue and is working to enlarge the airworthiness team.

The Shanghai center spent 13 million yuan ($2.09 million) sending five test pilots to train in the United States. The authority will also train six to 10 test pilots for C919 airworthiness certification, Shen says.

"The authority's airworthiness force will be strengthened in the future."

But CAAC still needs time to build its team as experts need to understand both airworthiness and aircraft design, Shen says.

The completion of the ARJ21's certification shows that the Chinese authorities are capable of examining passenger aircraft airworthiness, Shen says.

Taipei Times with CNA Excerpt
Taiwan takes air route issue to ICAO
UNILATERAL MOVE : The foreign ministry said that since China has not yet filed an application with the UN agency about the new routes, they can still be changed

Taiwan has taken its objection to China’s plan to open new flight routes in the Taiwan Strait to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), Minister of Foreign Affairs David Lin (林永樂) said yesterday.

The government has also conveyed its position on the matter to major countries and urged Beijing to continue negotiations on the issue with Taipei, Lin said.

“The mainland should not implement the new routes before the negotiations are completed,” Lin said at a meeting of the legislature’s Foreign Affairs and National Defense Committee.

The unilateral move by China is totally unacceptable to Taiwan, he said, adding that since Beijing has yet to file a formal application with the UN agency, the plan can still be changed.

At a separate meeting of the legislature’s Transportation Committee, officials said that Taipei had conveyed to Beijing its position on the issue and Beijing had indicated that it was willing to communicate with the government.

According to the Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA), Beijing announced an updated aviation safety bulletin on Monday morning that added four new air routes near China’s southeast coast. Among them, the north-south M503 route runs nearly parallel to the median line of the Taiwan Strait, coming as close as 7.8km. The three other routes — W121, W122 and W123 — run east-west and serve as feeder routes for the M503, with W122 and W123 potentially affecting flights to Taiwan’s outlying islands of Matsu and Kinmen.

Beijing has indicated that it plans to start using these new routes on March 5, the CAA said.

Deal opens door for more airlines from China
23 January 2015
The Age Excerpt

Australia is poised for an influx of second-tier Chinese airlines and more flights from the major state-owned carriers under a new deal that could provide a major boost for the local tourism industry.

Under a revised air services agreement to be announced on Friday, the cap on seats from Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou to the major gateway cities of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth will be raised by an immediate 18 per cent, with more to follow in stages over the next two years.

The deal could help clear the way for new flights between Brisbane and Shanghai, and Perth and Shanghai, contemplated under an alliance between China Eastern and Qantas that is being examined by the competition regulator.

But it could also allow Chinese carriers to increasingly target Australian passengers on the "Kangaroo route" by using their home cities as hubs for European flights in competition with airlines such as Qantas, Emirates, Singapore Airlines and Cathay Pacific.

Chinese airlines had reached the previous cap of 18,029 weekly one-way seats at certain times of the year, meaning no new services could be added by existing carriers or launched by new ones. By October 2016, 33,500 seats each way will be available each week.

Spring Airlines will expand fleet size by up to 30 planes
Bloomberg
13 February 2015 Excerpt

Spring Airlines Co, the Chinese budget airline owned by billionaire Wang Zhenghua, is in discussions with Airbus GroupNV and Boeing Co to buy as many as 30 planes as travel demand surges in the country.

The Shanghai-based carrier plans to place an order this year, Vice-President Stephen Wang said in an interview in Singapore on Thursday. The order will include an option for 30 more aircraft.

"China is a huge market," Wang said. "The market has an even brighter future in the next decade. Budget carriers in China will have double-digit market share very soon from the current 5 percent."

Spring Airlines wants to double its fleet to 100 aircraft by 2018 as China's economic growth makes air travel affordable for more people in the world's most populous nation. Shares of China's first low-fare carrier jumped 44 percent on its trading debut on Jan 21, and climbed by the 10 percent limit for nine straight days.

Spring Airlines shares rose 10 percent to 72.96 yuan ($11.67) on Thursday at the Shanghai Stock Exchange.

The airline aims to raise the proportion of international passengers carried and revenue to about 25 percent by the end of 2015, its president said in September. For now it is unlikely to follow the lead of other low-cost carriers such as AirAsia Bhd and Scoot Pte in pursuing long-haul routes.
