China Airlines Buoyed Most With Warming Taiwan-Mainland Relations: Freight
Bloomberg Excerpt
Nov 2, 2011

China Airlines Ltd. (2610) may gain the most of any air-cargo carrier from warming ties between China and Taiwan as the former foes dismantle barriers to their $150 billion in annual trade.

Taiwan’s biggest airline will add 18 flights to five Chinese cities by the end of this year, cementing its position as the operator of the most cross-straits flights since a six- decade ban on direct shipments was lifted in 2008. Ongoing trade talks probably will further boost the 558 planned weekly airline journeys over the 130-kilometer (80-mile) channel between the two sides, said Fubon Securities Co. analyst Ken Shih.

“Cross-straits cargo flights have gone from zero to rapid-growth, so it’s an area carriers can look to for expansion,” said Taipei-based Shih, who has an “add” recommendation on China Airlines stock. “The next round of flight-easing talks will focus on adding more stops, and that will easily double cargo revenue for airline carriers.”

Trade with China may help cushion Taiwan from any slowdown in demand from the U.S. and Europe for goods such as Acer Inc. and Asustek Computer Inc. notebooks, which are shipped by air. In addition, components made by companies such as Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., the world’s largest contract chipmaker, are sent to China as parts for Apple Inc. iPhones or Dell Inc. computers.

Because new flights approved across the strait are split evenly between China and Taiwan, the island’s five carriers get a bigger slice of the pie relative to the mainland’s eight airlines. Slots within each country are handed out based on fleet size, giving China Airlines an edge over Taiwanese cargo rival EVA Airways Corp. (2618)

**********************

To be sure, while air cargo makes up about 40 percent of China Airlines’ revenue, cross-strait traffic only accounts for about a 10th of that now, according to the company’s first-half financial report. And China demand can’t entirely offset an economic slowdown in developed economies, said analyst Jian.

**********************

Higher margins on cross-strait routes, additional flight quotas and a recovery in cargo may help drive a recovery in China Airlines’ profit, she said. Direct flights are expected to contribute as much as 45 percent of Ebitda this financial year, from as much as 30 percent in 2010, she said. Ebitda is a measure of profit excluding non-operating expenses such as tax and interest.

“Our cross-straits cargo flights are doing pretty well and our passenger flights also have pretty good loading rates,” said Roger Han, senior vice president for finance at the Taipei- based China Airlines. “We expect increases in our cross-strait cargo business next year,” though he described the traffic as a “niche business.”

**********************

Taoyuan Airport, Taiwan’s biggest airport, is investing about NT$300 billion ($10 billion) to meet increased demand for cargo and passenger flights, according to the Council for Economic Planning and Development.

The island also plans a NT$3.9 billion airport in central Taiwan, and is investing NT$1.8 billion to double cargo capacity at Kaohsiung airport in southern Taiwan by 2012, according to the economic planning agency.

Taiwan’s airlines have unique potential to benefit from thawing in ties between the two sides, said Chen Hui-Yi, a Taipei-based analyst at Polaris Securities Co. who recommends investors be “overweight” in China Airlines’ stock.

In addition to passenger aircraft that carry freight in the holds, there are 56 direct cross-strait cargo-only flights weekly. China Airlines and EVA Airways each have 14 as the only operators in Taiwan, while Air China Cargo Co. and China Southern Airlines are among five mainland carriers sharing the other 28 flights.

CAL flight delayed after disgruntled man’s bomb claim
Taipei Times Staff Writer, with CNA

A China Airlines (CAL) flight from Beijing to Taipei was delayed by nearly two hours yesterday after a passenger claimed while boarding that he had a bomb in his luggage.

Flight CI512, originally scheduled to depart Beijing at 12:25pm, took off from Beijing Capital International Airport at about 2:20pm after further security checks were conducted and no explosive device was found, CAL authorities in Taipei said.

The flight, with 351 passengers on board, arrived at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport at 5:15pm.

According to the carrier’s office in Beijing, a Chinese man, aged 70, who is a US passport holder, was unhappy that the flight had been delayed because of heavy traffic at Beijing airport.

The man, surnamed Zhang (張), said while taking his first-class seat that he was carrying a bomb in his luggage.

The attendants immediately alerted the captain.

In response, airport authorities ordered all luggage — not only that belonging to Zhang and his wife — to be removed from the aircraft for safety checks.

The couple were ordered to disembark from the aircraft and detained for questioning. The CAL flight then departed for Taipei.

Sean Lien (連勝文), a son of former vice president Lien Chan (連戰), and his wife were among the passengers. Sean Lien survived a gunshot wound to the face at an election rally in then-Taipei County in November last year.

EVA seeks to join oneworld or Star Alliance



IN BRIEF | Taipei-based carrier EVA Airways is "“in aggressive talks"” to join either the oneworld or Star Alliance, according to Air Transport World.

EVA is Taiwan's second-largest carrier behind China Airlines, which recently joined SkyTeam. EVA counts Brisbane as its sole Australian port.

Raymond Lin, vice chairman of EVA parent Evergreen Group, told ATW that the airline hopes to be accepted into either oneworld or Star "in “less than two years from now, hopefully earlier".

According to ATW, Lin said that joining an alliance would benefit the carrier’s mainland China services, where it flies to 25 destinations. “This business [has] become the most important one to us,” Lin said, noting the carrier wants to “increase frequencies.”
For their part, oneworld is keen on increasing its footprint into China, although the alliance is hoping for a mainland carrier rather than ad addition 'offshore' partner, which it already has in Cathay Pacific's Dragon Air.

“We’d like to be able to fill that gap” Michael Blunt, oneworld’s Vice-President for Corporate Communications, told Australian Business Traveller last month.

“It’s no secret that we were interested in China Eastern, but 18 months ago they decided to go into SkyTeam alongside China Southern. In the long term we’d certainly like someone from China who can provide business travellers with interconnecting flights in the mainland.”

Taiwan, Japan sign open skies agreement
AFP
Thu, Nov 10, 2011

Taiwan and Japan on Thursday signed an open skies agreement, lifting restrictions on the number of carriers that can offer scheduled passenger services between the two.

Taiwan's foreign ministry said it hoped the deal would help spur tourism between the Asian neighbours.

Under the agreement, restrictions on the number of carriers providing regular passenger services on the profitable routes -- currently two from each side -- will be lifted.

Taiwanese air carriers will be allowed to offer unlimited flights to any Japanese destination except for Tokyo.

The main airlines to be affected by the deal are Japan Airlines (JAL), All Nippon Airways (ANA) and Taiwan's China Airlines and EVA Airways.

A total of 923,000 Japanese visited Taiwan in the nine months to September, a rise of nearly 50 percent over the previous year.

During the nine-month period, the number of Taiwanese tourists travelling to Japan fell by 21 percent to 845,000 in the wake of the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, said Taiwan's Tourism Bureau.

Trade between Taiwan and Japan totalled $70 billion in 2010.

Japan has recently really opened up their airspace network in hopes to lure additional traffic to its other smaller airports. They just signed with Canada not too long ago! Still though, I think it would be much more economically beneficial if carriers at least had the same access at Tokyo Haneda.

Noted Tokyo was specifically excluded from the open skies agreement. Not sure whether the new Ibaraki LCC airport is included but that facility is fledging badly these days. I guess Osaka would be the first to benefit?

CAL, EVA revenues rise on better cargo business
Taipei Times

The nation’s two largest airlines both reported increased month-on-month revenues for last month amid improving cargo demand.

China Airlines Ltd (CAL, 中華航空), Taiwan’s largest carrier, posted NT$11.45 billion (US$380.83 million) in revenues last month, down 3.87 percent from a year ago, but up 7 percent from a month earlier, the company’s stock exchange filing showed.

WEAK ELECTRONICS

“Although persistently weak sentiment in the electronics sector dragged down demand for the air cargo business this year, the company has been searching for new demand from other sectors,” CAL spokesman Hamilton Liu (劉國芊) told the Taipei Times by telephone.

CAL set up a new cargo center in Japan last month, partly helping the company expand the market for the cargo business, Liu added.

Revenues from the cargo business rose 18.34 percent from a month earlier to NT$4.13 billion for last month, which was still 19.49 percent lower from a year earlier, data showed.

MAJOR DRIVER

With regards the passenger business, Liu said that cross-strait routes remained the major driver for CAL for this year.

The company’s passenger business posted NT$6.85 billion in revenues for last month, up 0.44 percent and 9.42 percent from a month and a year earlier respectively, the company said.

EVA Airways Corp (EVA, 長榮航空), the nation’s second-largest carrier, posted a similar trend in revenues last month.

It reported NT$8.48 billion in revenues last month, down 2.96 percent from a year earlier, but up 2.66 percent from the previous month, company data showed.

Its cargo business posted NT$3.15 billion in revenues, 9.38 percent higher than last month and 16.89 percent lower than the same month last year, data showed.

Revenues from the passenger business declined slightly, by 0.82 percent from a month ago to NT$4.82 billion last month, but was 10.27 percent higher from a year earlier, the company said.

In the first 10 months, CAL posted NT$110.23 billion in revenues, down 4.57 percent from a year ago, while EVA’s revenues slid 2 percent from the previous year to NT$85.7 billion, data showed.

Five more direct flights launched between Hainan, Taiwan

HAIKOU, Oct. 31 (Xinhua) -- Five more direct flights were launched Monday between the Chinese mainland's southernmost province of Hainan and Taiwan, bringing the total number of direct flights between the two regions to nine.

Taiwan's China Airlines opened a new direct air route between Taipei and Haikou, the provincial capital of Hainan, with three round-trip flights per week, said Deng Xiaogang, executive vice mayor of Haikou.

In addition, Taiwan's EVA Air on Monday also opened a new direct air route between Taipei and Haikou, with two round-trip flights per week, Deng said.

"Convenient air travel will help promote economic and cultural exchanges between Hainan and Taiwan and boost tourism in both cities," Deng said.

Hainan Airlines has been operating two direct flights per week between Haikou and Taipei since 2008, while China Airlines currently runs two direct flights between Sanya, a beach resort city in Hainan, and Taipei.

Direct flights to be launched between Chinese mainland's Lanzhou, Taipei

LANZHOU, Nov. 1 (Xinhua) -- Regular direct flights will be launched between the Chinese mainland's far western city of Lanzhou and Taipei next month to meet increasing market demand, local authorities said Tuesday.

The mainland-based Hainan Airlines will open a new direct air route between Taipei and Lanzhou, capital of Gansu Province, on Dec. 28, with a round-trip flight each week, a spokesman with the Gansu Airport Group said.

Far Eastern Air Transport based in Taiwan plans to launch two direct flights between Taipei and Lanzhou every week, but the maiden flight date is yet to be decided, the spokesman said.

It will be the first time for Zhongchuan Airport in Lanzhou to offer an air service between Lanzhou and Taipei since it was established in 1970, he said.

"The opening of regular flights will not only make it easier for people in Gansu to travel to Taiwan, but also the people in the neighboring provinces of Qinghai and Ningxia," he said.

Gansu is home to Dunhuang, which boasts the world renowned Mogao Grottoes and beautiful oases.

Tourist charter flights to be launched between Chinese mainland's Taiyuan, Taipei

TAIYUAN, Dec. 3 (Xinhua) -- Tourist charter flights will be launched between Chinese mainland's northern city of Taiyuan and Taipei next Monday to meet increasing market demand, local authorities said Saturday.

The mainland-based China Eastern Airlines will operate three such round-trip flights every week, while the Taiwan-based Far Eastern Air Transport will run two such flights every week, a spokesman with the Shanxi Provincial Tourism Bureau said.

"Shanxi boasts lots of places of historic interest, which attract Taiwan people very much. The new air service will help boost the tourism markets in both Shanxi and Taiwan," the spokesman said.

Currently, there are only two regular direct flights operating every week between Shanxi and Taiwan, or the Taiyuan-Taipei flight and Taiyuan-Hualien flight.

"Those are far from meeting the demand of tourists in the province. The plane tickets for Taiwan are always hard to get and the travel to the island always costs very much," said Ma Jun, manager of the Shanxi Huangcheng Xiangfu International Travel Agency.

"The new air service will not only make it easier for people in Shanxi to travel to Taiwan, but also help drop the travel costs," he said.

As long as they're in an alliance, then it only gives more incentive to use EVA AIR (than compared to now when they are not part of any airline alliance).

New regular flight to be launched between Chinese mainland's Sanya, Taipei

HAIKOU, Dec. 6 (Xinhua) -- A new regular direct air route between the Chinese mainland's southern resort city of Sanya and Taipei will be launched on Jan. 11, an airline spokesman said Tuesday.

The new round-trip route will be operated by Hainan Airlines every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, a company spokesman said.

The new service will be launched to meet increasing market demand against a backdrop of frequent economic and cultural exchanges between the Chinese mainland and Taiwan, he said.

Currently, Hainan Airlines operates 26 regular flights every week between five mainland cities -- Beijing, Guangzhou, Dalian, Xi'an and Haikou -- and Taipei.

Airlines apply for more Japan flights
OPEN SKIES:The pact with Japan only caps flights to Tokyo and has seen TransAsia apply to run 28 flights a week from Taoyuan airport to eight cities in the country

The Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) yesterday said the open-sky agreement between Taiwan and Japan had encouraged the nation’s airlines to offer new services to Japan, with new flights set to be listed on the summer schedule in March next year.

CAA Director-General Yin Chen-pong said that all of the nation’s airlines are now qualified to operate new flights to Japan, except for flights heading to Tokyo.

Prior to the agreement, only China Airlines and EVA Air have the rights to operate regular flights to Japan, he said.

China Airlines, Mandarin Airlines and TransAsia Airways have all applied to begin operating new flights. Yin said China Airlines had applied to have three weekly flights to Shizuoka and two weekly flights to Toyama, all of which would depart from Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport.

Mandarin Airlines has applied to have two weekly flights to Ishigakijima from Taoyuan airport, two weekly flights to Okinawa from Greater Taichung and two flights to Osaka from Greater Kaohsiung.

TransAsia had the most ambitious plan among the three carriers, with plans to launch 28 weekly flights from Taoyuan airport to eight cities in Japan.

EVA Air and Uni Air have yet to submit their applications.

Yin said the CAA would review operational plans submitted by the carriers, adding that they can start putting the flights on their summer schedules once they secure -certificates to operate the flights.

The bilateral aviation agreement sets no limit on the number of flights to Japanese cities other than Tokyo.

Both sides have also agreed to increase passenger flights to two a week and cargo flights to four a week between Taoyuan and Narita airports, as well as seven flights a week between Taoyuan and Haneda airports.

The Taoyuan-Haneda services are not restricted to passenger or cargo flights.

The CAA said the flights between Taoyuan airport and the two airports in Tokyo should be divided between CAL and EVA, two of the nation’s largest airlines.

However, TransAsia has applied to have seven passenger flights between Taoyuan and Haneda.

The administrative authority can allow no more than two airlines to offer services between Tokyo and a city in Taiwan because of stipulation in the pact.
