China to allow mainlanders to make transit stops in Taiwan
Excerpt

Jan 6 (Reuters) - China's move to allow transit stops in Taiwan for onward flights for the first time is a sign Beijing is trying to interfere with Taiwan's upcoming presidential elections, the opposition party favoured to win the polls said on Wednesday.

China's Taiwan Affairs Office said passengers flying from Nanchang, Kunming and Chongqing would be allowed to transit through Taiwan's main international airport before flying on to a third destination.

The news came just a few days before Taiwan is expected to elect a president from the independence-leaning Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) on Jan 16. The ruling Kuomintang (KMT), which is China-friendly, is falling behind in opinion polls.

"China for sure is doing this to give the KMT a boost in the elections," said DPP lawmaker Chen Chi-mai. "It seems China is trying to dominate future Taiwan-China ties."

I love China Airlines livery. It's sophisticated, yet subtle. However, EVA Air livery is just hideous, and I'm person who truly like some green.

I liked the old EVA livery, but now with the darker shade of green I think it's awful. I don't see why they had to mess with a good thing. I know of course that many would probably disagree but it was great the way it was. China airlines livery is fantastic and I think the A350 will look great in it.

Taiwan’s V Air to expand Philippine routes

Quote:
AFTER LAUNCHING its first Manila-Taipei flight, Taiwanese budget carrier V Air is keen on expanding its routes to include tourist hot spots Cebu, Kalibo and Puerto Princesa, as it seeks to capture young travelers seeking affordable options.

V Air on Sunday launched its inaugural Manila-Taipei flight, and will operate evening flights every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday from the Taoyuan International Airport. It uses A320 and A321 aircraft that can seat 180 and 194 passengers, respectively, in an all-economy configuration.

“There are more younger travelers coming to the Philippines. Our roundtrip fares are about P3,000 (2,100 NT$/ 65 US$) and I think the competitors’ prices are double,” V Air Chief Commercial Officer Bernard Hsu said in an interview at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Pasay City after the inaugural flight.

MD-90 fleet retired after two decades
MUCH ADO : Passengers on UNI Air’s last MD-90 flight were given certificates and the crew given flowers as a memento, with the plane taxiing through a water salute
Taipei Times Excerpt


UDN

UNI Air’s (立榮航空) last McDonnell Douglas-90 (MD-90) aircraft was yesterday officially decommissioned after two decades carry domestic passengers.

Airline chairman Solomon Lin (林志忠) said that the company would use 15 ATR72-600 aircraft for domestic flights, and Airbus 321 airplanes for international and cross-strait flights after the complete decommissioning of the MD-90 fleet.

The company held a ceremony yesterday afternoon at Taipei International Airport (Songshan airport) in honor of the MD-90’s two decades in service, which was attended by UNI Air chief executive vice president Chen Shyong-jyh (陳雄智), as well as Civil Aeronautics Administration officials and other government agencies. They greeted the arrival of the MD-90 aircraft, which had just made the trip from Kinmen to Taipei.

Each passenger aboard was presented with a certificate saying that they were witnesses to the historic moment. Flight and cabin crew were given flowers in recognition of their service.

The company gave a final water salute to the aircraft.

Lin said that the MD-90 aircraft were the first-generation fleet in the Evergreen Group, which owns both EVA Air and UNI Air.

He said that UNI Air had been using them for short-distance flights for both airlines after introducing 14 of the aircraft in 1996.

Lin added that the aircraft was used when the nation launched charter flights from Kaohsiung International Airport to Shanghai Pudong International Airport during the Lunar New Year holiday in 2003.

The same aircraft was used for the first weekend charter flights in 2008 from Songshan airport to Pudong airport, he said.

China Airlines' first A350 delayed due to production lag
Excerpt

Taipei, June 11 (CNA) China Airlines (CAL), one of Taiwan's leading international carriers, said earlier this week that production of its Airbus A350 order has fallen behind and that the first aircraft will not be delivered until the end of September.

The first of the 14 aircraft ordered by CAL was scheduled to be delivered in July but Airbus said production on its assembly lines was lagging, which would delay delivery of the first A350 by three months, the carrier said.

Due to that problem, Airbus will not be able to deliver the next three aircraft on time either, CAL said.

The Taiwanese carrier has placed an order with Airbus for 14 extra wide body aircraft in the A350-900 series, which generally have a seating capacity of 325.

The first A350-900 was scheduled to be delivered to CAL in July, and three others by the end of the year.

Due to the delivery delay, CAL said, it will have to adjust its schedule for the European market.

CAA and airlines to shoulder aviation safety
Taiwan's aviation crash record is higher than the global average, a report shows, as regulators push for training and aircraft upgrades to improve safety
17 June 2016
Taipei Times Excerpt

The Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) and the nation's airline companies are to be held accountable for the deterioration of aviation safety records, according to a report by the Aviation Safety Council (ASC).

The report was unveiled at yesterdays meeting of the legislatures Transportation Committee, during which ASC Chairperson Hwung Hweng-hwung briefed lawmakers on the councils progress in its investigation into the causes of aviation incidents and aviation safety research.

According to the report, the average hull loss an accident that damages an aircraft beyond economic repair occurrence rate for commercial planes decreased from 3.18 times per million departures 10 years ago to 0.58 times per million departures this year.

Although the 10-year moving hull loss occurrence rate for turboprop airplanes was zero between 2004 and 2013, it rose to 3.09 times per million departures because of the TransAsia Airways Flight 222 crash in Penghu in July 2014 and the TransAsia Airways Flight 235 crash in Taipei last year.

The rate is higher than the global average, the report showed.

The council has suggested several measures to improve the nations aviation safety record.

Aside from improving airport facilities, the council suggested simplified flight data recorders be installed in some older aircraft not already equipped with such devices.

The council also said that there were eight incidents in the past five years involving aircraft overrunning the runway. To address the problem, the nations airline companies need to train pilots regarding procedures when an aircraft needs to circle, it said.

The CAA should have a safety-management system in place, the council said.

When questioned by the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Legislator Lin Chun-hsien on how the CAA has been implementing the changes recommended by the ASC, Hwung said that the agency is not mandated to enforce ASCs suggestions to improve aviation safety, except special projects overseen by the Executive Yuan.

CAA Director-General Lin Tyh-ming said that it had addressed some of the urgent safety issues facing the nation's airlines, adding that issues need to be completed in phases.

DPP legislators Cheng Pao-ching and Yeh Yi-jin said that people should not just think of the ASC as an agency investigating the causes of air crashes.

They said that human error and technical problems are the two main factors involved in airplane crashes in Taiwan, with percentages higher than the global average.

CAL attendants begin their strike
China Airlines has said it would help travelers change flights if they are affected by strike action today, and processing fees on refunds would be waived
24 June 2016
Taipei Times with CNA Excerpt

The Taoyuan Flight Attendants Union yesterday announced that a China Airlines (CAL) flight attendants strike would begin at midnight last night, demanding that the firm drop new requirements that flight attendants be required to report for work at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport instead of Taipei International Airport (Songshan airport).

The union said in a statement that even though the chairman of the China Airlines board had been replaced, they would proceed with the strike to show the new chairman that their determination to fight for their rights would not be diminished by a new leadership.

At a time when controversy over whether to keep national holidays is still high, the union is willing to become the vanguard of workers in this battle, and tell capitalists and the state that Taiwan must say goodbye to the era of overwork and long hours, the statement said.

The union asks for support from all of employees in Taiwan, it said.

It is the first time in Taiwan's history that flight attendants have taken industrial action.

A total of 2,548, or 96 percent, of 2,638 CAL workers in the union voted on Tuesday to strike after talks broke down on June 7 between CAL management and the union amid disputes over work hours, subsidies and where personnel are to clock in.

Ninety-nine percent, or 2,535, of the union members at the Tuesday meeting voted in favor of the strike, while nine voted against it, three cast invalid ballots and one did not vote, the union said.

CI caved in fairly quickly and acceded to all of the unions demands. There are now rumours of other branches of the airline going on strike after seeing the success that the FA's had. There have been ruomours that ground staff may strike and also that Transasia airways staff may strike.
