Company Special: China Airlines dominates market for mainland tourism to Taiwan
(WCARN.com/China Daily, July 13)

Quote:
In the year that has passed since Chinese mainland residents were first allowed to tour Taiwan without a tour group, Taipei-headquartered China Airlines has become the largest shareholder in the cross-Straits air transportation market. China Airlines has more than 100 destinations in 29 countries and regions around the world. It also links 24 cities on the Chinese mainland to Taiwan, with 108 flights every week shuttling across the Straits.

In Shanghai alone, the company is operating more than 20 flights to Taiwan's Taipei and Kaohsiung cities a week, "but it is still not enough, because Shanghai is one of the major gathering places of Taiwan's businessmen", said Danny Chung, China Airlines' chief representative on the mainland.

In Guangzhou and Shenzhen, the airline has five flights from each location to Taiwan every week, Chung said. "Although we are using our largest planes to fly these lines, such as the Boeing 747, with nearly 400 seats, we still cannot meet the demand," he said. Because of the soaring price of fuel, "the longer the flying distance, the bigger the loss", said Chung.

Taiwan, a difficult place to take-off from
(The Wall Street Journal/WCARN.com, July 22)

Quote:
Taiwan's flag carrier, China Airlines Ltd., has struggled to clear both internal and external hurdles in its efforts to expand beyond its borders. For its part, the carrier, Taiwan's largest airline by revenue, has had a less-than-stellar safety record - four deadly accidents between the 1994 and 2002, including a crash in Nagoya, Japan, in 1994 that killed 264 people.

Further hampering growth, the airline was until recently banned from operating direct flights to mainland China, which considers the island a rogue territory. Those restrictions have eased since diplomatic relations between Beijing and Taipei began to thaw in 2008, though some limitations remain.


The airline's president, Huang-Hsiang Sun, a 64-year-old industry veteran, sat down with Joanne Chiu in Beijing to discuss how the carrier plans to rebuild its image, what its plans are for the cross-strait market, and what measures it will take to offset falling revenue contributions from its air-cargo business. The following interview has been edited.

Domestic airports seek new revenue ideas to pull out of financial nosedive

Domestic airports must undergo a complete examination of their operational efficiency before seeking solutions to fill in their financial black holes, according to National Cheng Kung University professor Chang Yo-heng (張有恆).

Fierce rivalry among domestic airlines and competition from the high-speed rail system have left airports in Hengchun, Chiayi, Tainan, Taitung, Hualien and Kaohsiung all struggling and seeking new sources of revenue.

Due to a lack of flights and an inconvenient location, Tainan Airport suffers an average daily loss of NT$260,000. The airport is looking at ideas to utilize its vast space and attract citizens to witness planes' departures and arrivals. Its operators have also held negotiations with solar panel industry figures and artists, with eyes on additional revenue from the sale of solar-produced energy and more visitors from art exhibitions.

Far Eastern Air Transport is also assessing potential airline plans of flying from Tainan to select cities in mainland China. This idea is also being looked at by Chiayi and Taitung airports.

As an extra revenue stream, the two airports also rent out idle store space to pineapple cake and egg roll vendors, anticipating that diversified travel demographics could offset miserable sales.

Chiayi Airport Director Chiu Yung-sheng (邱永昇) said the airport currently operates in poor conditions, with only six to eight fights carrying about 300 passengers to the airport running every day. As such, store owners foresee no new opportunities arising in the near future.

Pingtung County's Hengchun Airport, nicknamed “Mosquito Airport” for its poor occupancy rate of 24 percent — giving it more than enough empty space for mosquitoes to breed — is considering opening its space for light aircraft training runs. According to the airport, some business owners have already responded well to the proposal. Tenders are set to be announced in the near future.

As for projections of tourists flying in from mainland China, Hualien Airport Director Hsu Yun-tsu (徐雲祖) and Kaohsiung Airport Director Chu Yao-kuang (朱耀光) said they are optimistic about potential business opportunities brought by the growing number of visitors and their increasing purchasing power.

Hsu said he expects more stores to open branches in Hualien Airport as tourists fly in from China's Wuhan and Hangzhou, and Japan's Ishigaki. Chu said Kaohsiung Airport has prepared to handle increasing numbers of cross-strait flights.

No injuries reported after Penghu runway incident

TAIPEI--All 110 people aboard a plane that ran off the runway at Magong Airport in Taiwan's outlying island chain Penghu were safe, aviation authorities said late Friday.

At 9:30 p.m. Friday, a Taiwan-based Mandarin Airlines ERJ-190 jet ran off the end of the runway while landing. It had taken off 80 minutes earlier from the Taipei International Airport, according to officials.

While the 104 passengers and six crew members were reported safe, the incident left the plane's nose wheels jammed, officials said.

The airline said it was likely that water stagnation on the taxiway following a thunderstorm had caused the jet to deviate from the intended landing path and overrun into the nearby grass.

The incident caused four domestic flights to be delayed as of 11 a.m. Saturday, affecting 460 passengers, said Magong Airport Director Hung Chien-nanm.

Regular air traffic services, however, were resumed at 9 a.m. following the airport's temporary shutdown, he said.

EVA Gives Hokkaido-Bound Passengers Added Flexibility
New service between Taipei and Hakodate starts 28 October

Press Release

TAIPEI, TAIWAN (16 Aug., 2012) -- EVA Air will begin flying to a second destination in Hokkaido, the northernmost of Japan’s four main islands, on 28 October, 2012. Initially, the carrier will operate two flights a week between Taipei’s Taoyuan International Airport and Hakodate Airport. The added service will make trip planning easier and significantly more convenient for business and leisure travelers who fly back and forth between Taiwan and Hokkaido. Travelers can book, buy and reserve seats now through their travel agents, brokers and on EVA’s user-friendly website, www.evaair.com

EVA will serve the new gateway with a 252-seat Airbus 330-200. Flight BR138 will depart Taoyuan at 11:05 am and arrive in Hakodate at 15:35 (3:35 pm) on Wednesdays and Sundays. Return flight BR137 will depart Hakodate at 16:50 (4:50 pm) and land back in Taoyuan at 20:15 (8:15 pm) on the same day. In December 2012, EVA will increase frequency with a third weekly flight on Thursdays. Flight time between Taoyuan and Hakodate is about three and a half hours.

With its abundant natural resources and tourism development, Hokkaido attracts travelers from throughout the world. It has four distinct seasons and is a favorite among Taiwanese travelers for its cherry blossoms in spring, lavender in summer, maple leaves in fall and snow in winter.

Hakodate was established in 1454 as a trading outpost and grew to become a thriving port. It is the third largest city in Hokkaido, located in the southern part of the island and linked to Japan’s largest and best-known island, Honshu, by the 53.85 km (33.49 mile) Seikan Tunnel. Hakodate is famous for its seafood, sushi and ramen and, along with Hong Kong and Naples, Italy, known for having one of the world’s three most beautiful night views. EVA began serving the promising Hakodate travel market in 1998 with seasonal charter flights, providing as many as 130 flights a year and approximately 400 total flights. Its new route will be the shortest from Taiwan to southern Hokkaido.

EVA now flies between Taoyuan and Sapporo daily. As soon as it launches the new Hakodate flights, it will be providing close to 3,000 seats a week and more access between Hokkaido and Taiwan than any other airline. The service will give business and leisure passengers greater flexibility and more itinerary options, and save both time and money. EVA is also working with travel agents to create tour packages that complement its current Sapporo products, designing them so that passengers can arrange to arrive in one city and depart from the other.

EVA’s routing within Asia is among the best in the airline industry. From gateways in Europe, Oceania and North America, passengers can make one stop in Taipei and easily connect onward to most major business and leisure destinations in Asia, including Sapporo and Hakodate. Travelers can book, buy and reserve seats through travel agents and brokers, by calling an EVA ticket office or at www.evaair.com.

EVA turns profit on strong demand in Q2, but reports loss for first six months
Taipei Times

EVA Airways Corp (EVA, 長榮航空), the nation’s second-largest air carrier, has swung into profit in the second quarter from the previous quarter on the back of stronger passenger business and lower fueling costs.

The airline yesterday posted NT$199.04 million (US$6.64 million), or NT$0.06 per share, in net profit during the April-to-June period, compared with a net loss of NT$1.08 billion, or a NT$0.33 loss per share, in the previous quarter, the company said in its stock exchange filing.

However, the carrier still reported a net loss of NT$881.4 million, or NT$0.27 per share, in the first six months.

In June, EVA chairman James Jeng (鄭光遠) said the company’s profitability would stage a rebound between last month and next month, because of strong seasonal demand from the passenger sector, especially in cross-strait routes.

The carrier announced on Tuesday it would sell two Boeing 747-400 Combi aircraft and said the sale would help it save on costs and maintain profitability, as continued low sentiment in the global economy could further drag down the cargo business, while uncertainties about crude oil prices would add pressure on the profitability of long-term routes.

The airline said it also planned to selling all of its B747-400 passenger and Combi aircraft over the next three to five years ahead of a planned fleet upgrade.

Meanwhile, TransAsia Airways Corp (TNA, 復興航空) yesterday said the first A330-300 aircraft it purchased from Airbus SAS in France may be delivered in November.

The carrier has ordered 29 new planes in the past two years, including two A330-300 planes, 18 Airbus 321 series eight ATR 72-600 aircraft and one additional option. The orders are planned to be delivered between this year and 2022.

Mandarin Airlines to end Taipei-Kaohsiung route tomorrow

Mandarin Airlines will officially terminate its Taipei-Kaohsiung flight service starting Sept. 1 due to the route's failure in the face of strong competition from Taiwan High Speed Rail Corp., according to company officials.

The officials said that the firm's last flight to Kaohsiung will depart from Taipei International Airport at 7:50 p.m. today, with all the seats fully booked; while the seats of the last flight to Taipei will take off from Xiogang Airport at 9:10 p.m. are already 90-percent booked.

The high passenger load ratios indicate that quite a few passengers just want to witness the historical moment of the closure of the Taipei-Kaohsiung flight route, officials said.

At the moment, Mandarin operates three Taipei-Kaoshiung flights per week, with the booking rate ranging from only 30 percent to 50 percent of each 104-seat flight, losing ground to the High Speed Rail service, which charges only NT$1,490 for a one-way Taipei-Kaohsiung ticket, lower than the flight fare of NT$1,750. The high frequency of the High Speed Rail services is also a major attraction to passengers.

Statistics of the Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) showed that during its heyday in 1997, the Taipei-Kaohsiung flight routes witnessed as many as 85 flights per day and 3,000 flights a year.

After closing its Taipei-Kaohsiung route, Mandarin will increase its Taipei-Taitung services to 17 flights a week from the existing 14 flights.

In related news, the UNI Airways Corp. has also been approved by the CAA to reduce its flights between Taipei and the southern tip of Hengchun to two from three, starting from Sept. 1, due to poor weather conditions and the extremely low booking rate of under 30 percent.

TransAsia hiring attracts over 1,000 people
CABIN CREW:The carrier expects more applicants to show up at its hiring session in Kaohsiung tomorrow, although it is only recruiting 95 people

TransAsia Airways Corp, one of the nation’s three listed airlines, is expected to recruit a record number of flight attendants this year as it continues its route expansion plans.

More than 1,000 applicants showed up yesterday to vie for 95 flight attendant positions during the airlines’ first recruitment drive in Taipei, it said, adding that 4.8 percent of the jobseekers were master’s degree holders.

With the airline holding another hiring session in Greater Kaohsiung tomorrow, the total number of applicants could reach 3,000, a record in the company’s history, with an estimated acceptance rate of 3 percent, TransAsia said.

The carrier initiated its first big-scale recruitment program this year by hiring 75 crewmembers, its largest in three years. A total of 1,600 applicants applied for the positions, with an acceptance rate of 4.7 percent, company data showed.

The demand for flight attendants is high as the carrier is on track to offer more flights and routes in Asia. Moreover, it is scheduled to accept delivery of an A330-300 wide-body aircraft from France’s Airbus in November.

TransAsia is offering an entry-level salary of at least NT$40,000 (US$1,360) per month, with new recruits undergoing a nine-month training program before going on board.

Attitude and linguistic abilities are two major considerations in selecting applicants, the carrier said.

While many might be motivated by dreams of flight, the stiff competition is also a reflection of the nation’s rising unemployment rate and low salaries.

The nation’s unemployment rate last month rose to its highest level since August last year, 4.31 percent, according to the Directorate-General of Budget, Accounting and Statistics (DGBAS).

The jobless rate for young people aged 15 to 24 stood at 12.96 percent — the highest level among all groups, the DGBAS said.

As for salaries, workers — including regular employees and independent workers — aged below 30 earned an average of NT$416,000 last year, also the lowest among all income groups, DGBAS statistics showed.

Despite perceptions of a slowing economy, 104 Job Bank said earlier this month that the demand for new workers might recover in November and December because of increased hiring in domestic consumer-oriented industries in the service sector.

Government has last say on flight ticket prices: CAA
Taipei Times

The Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) yesterday said the government has yet to decide whether it will allow domestic air carriers to raise their ticket prices, adding that it had asked experts to create a formula to calculate reasonable prices.

Domestic flight ticket prices have not been changed for seven years, but the carriers’ operational costs have increased because of higher fuel prices. Media reported recently that the CAA is considering allowing domestic carriers to raise their ticket prices next year by 5 percent to 30 percent.

The agency denied this claim.

The CAA’s air transport division deputy director Han Chen-hua (韓振華) said domestic ticket prices were approved by the government in 2005. However, the furl price has risen from NT$13 per liter then to NT$29 per liter as of this month.

Domestic carriers have asked the CAA to raise ticket prices, while lawmakers have asked it to lower prices to reduce the burden on travelers, he said.

Han said the CAA has completed research on the formula that could be used to determine domestic ticket prices, adding that the formula has yet to be approved by the Ministry of Transportation and Communications.

"The 30 percent price increase as reported by the media was only an estimate based on airliners’ operational costs in the past,” Han said. “If ticket prices are to be raised, the CAA will formulate complementary measures to lower the impact on domestic passengers. For example, we could consider increasing the subsidy for domestic flights for residents living in remote areas, or lowering the airport surcharge for domestic carriers.”

Han added that the domestic carriers must present their operational costs to the agency after the formula has been approved by the ministry.

The agency would convene a ticket price review committee and use the formula to calculate ticket prices, he said.

TransAsia to increase services: chairman
Taipei Times

TransAsia Airways Corp chairman Vincent Lin said his company is aiming to offer more package services in the future by forming strategic partnerships with different companies in the tourism industry and expanding its investment in related sectors.

However, both TransAsia and its parent group, Goldsun Group, are considering stepping into the hotel industry in the near future, Lin said.

“Providing a one-stop service [to our customers] is a goal,” Lin told a media briefing in France on Sunday.

The strategy is to offer customers flights and hotels, as well as food and beverage services, integrated by a travel agency.

The company’s revenue and profitability may benefit from the strategy on the back of the positive outlook on the nation’s tourism sector, Lin said.

TransAsia is looking for more strategic alliances with hotels in cities to which it flies, Lin said, adding that a new promotion in cooperation with a hotel in Japan may be launched in the first quarter next year.

Domestically, TransAsia might invest in building a hotel in Hualien County, while Goldsun Group is planning to construct a hotel in the next five to eight years on land it owns in Taipei’s Nangang (南港) District, Lin added.

On other fronts, TransAsia established its own travel agency unit and catering subsidiary — Legend Travel Service Ltd and TransAsia Catering Services Ltd — to develop more integrated services.

TransAsia Catering is launching a new channel brand near Taipei International Airport (Songshan) next month, Lin said.
