China Airlines to buy six Boeing 777-300ER planes
Taipei Times

China Airlines Ltd, the nation’s largest airline, yesterday announced plans to buy six Boeing 777-300ER aircraft for fleet replacement amid stronger demand from routes to Japan and China.

The carrier made the announcement after its board of directors approved the plan on Thursday.

It said it hoped the six aircraft would be delivered in succession from 2014.

“Replacing the fleet is the main reason for the company to buy new aircraft,” CAL spokesman Hamilton Liu told the Taipei Times by telephone.

The company plans to replace its old wide-body Airbus 340-300 aircraft with the new B777-300ER planes to save on fueling costs and increase efficiency, Liu said.

Compared with the four-engine A340-300 aircraft, a B777-300ER — a wide-body plane able to carry up to 451 passengers — has just two engines, which could reduce fuel consumption by about 20 percent, company data showed.

The rising demand on routes to Japan and China encouraged the carrier to accelerate the pace of buying new planes, Liu added.

Following the signing of an open-skies agreement between Japan and Taiwan, the carrier’s routes and flights to Japan are continuously increasing, Liu said, as are cross-strait routes and flights.

CAL’s fleet currently numbers 71 planes, including six A340-300 aircraft, which the company plans to replace with new planes.

EVA Airways Corp, the nation’s second-largest carrier, has added 15 B777-300ER aircraft to its fleet since 2005. In May, it announced it would order seven more B770-300ER planes and it expected to take delivery of these planes from 2014.

Meanwhile, CAL said yesterday it plans to raise NT$12 billion (US$412.9 million) by issuing new corporate bonds next year and would use the proceeds to finance the new aircraft purchases and repay loans.

The amount of next year’s debt issue is twice the size of the NT$6 billion debt it issued this year, company statistics showed.

CAL posted a net profit of NT$384.31 million, or NT$0.08 per share, in the first nine months of the year, the company said in a stock exchange filing.

Taiwan, China agree to boost cross-strait flights
Taipei Times

Taiwan and China have agreed to raise the number of regular cross-strait flights from 558 to 616, officials said after cross-strait aviation talks on Friday.

Under the new agreement, each side would be able to dispatch 308 cross-strait flights per week, up from 279 flights per week under the previous agreement.

As part of the deal, Taiwan has agreed to establish Chiayi airport as another base for cross-strait flights. China has added Yinchuan, Hohhot, Zhangjiajie, Urumqi, Xining, Hailar, Lijiang and Weihai to the list of airports which could service cross-strait flights. Each of the newly added Chinese airports would offer three flights per week.

Five cross-strait charter flights are to be changed to regular flights, including the service between Kaohsiung and Wuchang.

Both sides also agreed to extend the availability of seasonal charter flights from March to November.

Aside from Penghu’s Makong (馬公), the seasonal charter flight service would be available in Hualien, Taitung, Chiayi and Tainan.

China chose Luoyang, Jieyang Chaoshan, Meizhou, Yichang and Wuyishan as new airports for the seasonal charter flights.

Meanwhile, both sides decided not to limit the total number of additional flights for the Lunar New Year holiday, provided that caps remain on several Chinese cities.

Between Jan. 27 and Feb. 24, the number of flights to Beijing will be capped at 18, Shanghai Pudong Airport will be capped at 100, Guangzhou at 30, Shenzhen at 28, Hangzhou at 98 and Nanjing at 38.

Taipei International Airport (Songshan) and Shanghai Hongqiao Airport will not offer additional flights during the Lunar New Year holiday.

TransAsia sees sales rising 30%
ASIAN FOCUS:The carrier is counting on route expansion to support double-digit revenue growth next year, with flights to Tokyo expected to start in the near future

TransAsia Airways Corp (復興航空), a Taiwanese carrier focusing on regional passenger routes in Asia, expects revenue next year to grow 30 percent from a year earlier, as it continues to launch new routes, a company official said yesterday.

Sales could surpass NT$10 billion (US$343.6 million) next year, marking the highest in the company’s history. The airline posted NT$8.74 billion in revenue last year.

In the first 11 months of the year, TransAsia posted sales of NT$8.68 billion, up 8.29 percent from a year earlier, company data showed.

“TransAsia is entering an expansion period,” chief commercial officer Chooi Yee-choong (徐以聰), who joined the management team in the middle of last month, told a media briefing.

The airline welcomed its first A330-300 aircraft last month, with the plane set to make its maiden flight from Taipei to Singapore on Dec. 30, Chooi said.

After taking delivery of its second A330-300 aircraft from France-based Airbus SAS next month, TransAsia is looking to launch more regional services in Asia next year, he added.

The carrier is looking to open routes to Bangkok and Tokyo, Chooi said, adding that at least one new route would be launched in the first half of next year.

TranAsia hopes to commence flights between Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport and Tokyo’s Narita International Airport in the near future, he said.

It may also consider launching flights between Taipei International Airport (Songshan airport) and Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, he added.

For its current operational routes — to Macau, South Korea, Singapore, China and Japan — Chooi said the carrier hoped to increase its flight frequency if it could obtain additional quotas.

Chooi was optimistic about revenue growth momentum in the current quarter amid the increase in capacity, saying sales were in line with company expectations.

“The fourth quarter is not bad ... year-end demand is holding up well,” he said.

The airline also unveiled its early bird offers for budget travelers in the Asia-Pacific region, part of its strategy to expand its market share.

The special promotions are only available online and applicable between March and October next year. They cannot be used during the summer break, the Tomb-Sweeping Festival in early April and the Mid-Autumn Festival in late September, it added.

Airlines hope weak yen will boost travel
STRONG WEAKNESS:Local carriers are appreciating the depreciation of the Japanese currency, which they say will offset the slump in travel to Japan caused by economic woes
Taipei Times with CNA

Taipei-based carriers are optimistic about a surge in travel by Taiwanese to Japan due to the depreciation of the Japanese yen, despite fallout from the sagging domestic economy.

China Airlines Ltd (CAL, 中華航空), the nation’s largest carrier, on Monday said that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s policy of driving down the value of the yen is expected to benefit local airlines operating flights to Japan this year.

According to CAL’s statistics, seats on round-trip flights from Taiwan to Japan on New Year’s Day and over the Lunar New Year holiday — from Feb. 10 to Feb. 17 — are already between 90 percent and 95 percent booked.

Japan has long been a favored tourists destination for Taiwanese and as a result, local airlines see Japan-bound flights as being very lucrative.

However, CAL officials said the sluggish economy has taken a toll on Taiwanese tourism to Japan, citing as an example the downturn in bookings for flights to Japan during non-holiday periods ahead of the Lunar New Year compared with the same period last year.

They ascribed this to Taiwan’s dull economy and smaller year-end bonuses for most workers, which has led many to refrain from taking overseas vacations.

However, the airline officials foreceast that since the cheaper yen will make it more affordable for Taiwanese to travel to Japan, ticket sales to the country are likely to increase.

On average, Taiwanese make between 1.3 million and 1.4 million visits to Japan each year, exceeding Japanese tourist arrivals to Taiwan, which are slightly more than 1 million per year.

TransAsia Airways Corp (復興航空), the nation’s third-largest carrier, also predicted further growth in the number of Taiwanese tourists in Japan thanks to the cheaper yen.

More than 90 percent of the seats on the airline’s fights to Hokkaido, one of the most popular Japanese tourist destinations for Taiwanese, for this month and next month have been booked, TransAsia officials said.

However, the yen’s depreciation against other currencies may have negative long-term repercussions too, such as pulling Japanese businesses from Taiwan back home, and could hurt Taiwan’s role as Japan’s gateway to the Chinese market, analysts said.

Yuanta-Polaris Research Institute (元大寶華研究院) president Liang Kuo-yuan (梁國源) said that according to market estimates, when the US dollar trades above ¥90 for an extended period, overseas Japanese businesses are inclined to return home because of lower capital costs, which would hurt Taiwan’s efforts to further its economic cooperation with Japan.

The US dollar traded above ¥86 on Monday in Asia trading.

For the whole of last year, the Japanese currency closed out its biggest annual decline in seven years after reaching a post-war high in 2011 that eroded the competitiveness of Japanese exporters.

Liang said the yen’s depreciation needs to last for a long time before it will lure overseas Japanese businesses home. Otherwise, they will stay put, even if the US dollar trades above ¥100.

Gordon Sun (孫明德), the director of the Taiwan Institute of Economic Research’s (台灣經濟研究院) macroeconomic forecasting center, said the weakening yen affects each industry differently.

For example, Taiwan’s petrochemical, rubber, metal and mechanical industries might be adversely affected by the weakening yen because of heightened competition from Japan.

However, the electronics parts sector will see little change, thanks to the already frequent interaction between the two markets, while the auto industry — which relies heavily on imports of Japanese cars — will benefit from the weaker yen, he said.

Airlines’ Web sites problematic, foundation says
Taipei Times

The Consumers’ Foundation yesterday said its survey of low-cost airlines’ Web sites found that 10 of them offered incomplete information and several of them also have no-refund policies.

Since 2004, when the first low-cost airline started operating in Taiwan, the number of these airlines flying to and from the nation has increased to 10, the foundation said.

It added that the Civil Aeronautics Administration’s (CAA) statistics show that more than 840,000 visitors have flown to Taiwan using low-cost airlines as of the end of August last year.

In October last year, the Executive Yuan’s Consumer Protection Committee announced in an analysis that most of the low-cost airlines’ Web sites provided incomplete information and it urged consumers to pay attention to service descriptions before booking cheap flights online.

Yesterday, the foundation said its survey also showed that information offered on several of the airlines’ Web sites was unclear or incomplete. Two of the airlines’ Web sites used only simplified Chinese characters and two others automatically linked to travel agencies in Taiwan.

The foundation added that two airlines have a no-refund policy for all tickets, two have no-refund policies for partial flights and one has a no-refund policy for non-members of the airline’s loyalty program.

Some of the airlines charge transaction fees for a variety of services, such as a NT$3,000 fee for changing flights, and several airlines charged additional fees for checked luggage, on-flight meals and blankets, the foundation said.

Consumers’ Foundation chairman Mark Chang said the foundation recently received a complaint from a customer who had booked a NT$24,000 ticket last month, but later tried to change the flight through an English-only customer service number. The customer this month found a charge of NT$50,000 on his credit card because the airline did not give him a refund on his first booking.

As many of the low-cost airlines’ policies are unfair to consumers, the foundation said, it urged the CAA to examine the situation, while reminding consumers to pay more attention to service descriptions on Web sites before booking tickets.

Aviation officials defend higher fares to Penghu Islands
Taipei Times with CNA

Increases in airfares to the Penghu Islands are necessary because airlines are losing money on the route, an aviation official said yesterday in response to complaints about the proposed hike.

Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Legislator Tsai Chin-lung called a press conference to say that the fares to the outlying islands, which have remained unchanged for eight years, should not go up because of the recent decline in international crude oil prices.

Any increase in the round-trip airfare to Penghu, which currently costs about NT$3,500, will “make Penghu residents suffer more,” Tsai said at the press conference.

Flights between Taipei and Magong take about 50 minutes.

Chen Tien-tsyh, deputy director-general of the Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA), responded at the press conference that carriers had to think about their operating conditions and adjust ticket prices to cut their losses.

The CAA has promised ticket prices will not rise ahead of the Lunar New Year, which falls on Feb. 10 this year.

Meanwhile, Tsai said he had received complaints about online ticketing systems used to book flights to the islands. Travelers have told him that the system requires them to pay before they can even put their names on a waiting list, and if they want to withdraw from the waiting list, they are then asked to pay a processing fee, Tsai said.

However, Chen was skeptical of the claim, saying it was unlikely that travelers would have to purchase tickets unless their seats were guaranteed. He said payment implies that a transaction is successful and only after are cancellation fees charged.

Many residents of outlying islands have expressed satisfaction with the online booking system, Chen said, and the CAA is considering raising the proportion of seats made available online.

At present, 60 percent of all seats are booked on the Internet and 40 percent of bookings are made by telephone.

CAL to add routes, increase flight frequency
Taipei Times

China Airlines Ltd, the nation’s largest carrier, is looking to launch new routes and increase flights on some routes to compete with budget airlines, its president said yesterday.

Despite the competition, the airline industry may have also benefited from the entry of low-cost carriers, as they have boosted passenger revenues, CAL president Sun Hung-hsiang told reporters on the sidelines of a press conference on the company’s partnership with W Taipei.

“In the wake of various low-cost carriers entering the market over the past few years, passenger demand has increased,” he said.

The stronger demand helped regular carriers, like CAL, to expand some routes and flights, Sun added.

Using the Malaysia route as an example, Sun said CAL plans to increase flights between Taipei and Kuala Lumpur this year, as the flourishing of Malaysia-based budget carrier AirAsia has increased the number of tourists coming from Malaysia to Taiwan.

CAL may change its Hawaii flights to non-stop flights in June or July, as the US visa waiver program has boosted Taiwanese interest in visiting Hawaii, he said.

However, competition from low-cost carriers has also made regular airlines cautious about raising ticket prices.

CAL will experiment with a new marketing strategy over the next month of selling some tickets cheaper online, mostly on routes with lower passenger loading rates, he said.

The average ticket price for a regular carrier would be 10 percent to 15 percent higher than that of a low-cost carrier, Sun said.

Meanwhile, CAL and W Taipei — a luxury hotel backed by Uni-President Group (統一集團) — have joined together to launch new in-flight cuisine, with four contemporary menus created by chefs from the hotel’s YEN Chinese restaurant (紫豔中餐廳).

The menus will be served in first-class and business-class on routes from Taipei to the US, Japan and China, CAL said in a statement.

Four signature cocktails from W Taipei’s Woobar will also be served onboard long-haul flights, the statement said.

CAL posted a net profit of NT$384.31 million (US$13.23 million), or NT$0.08 per share, in the first three quarters of last year, up about 60 percent from NT$0.05 in the same period in 2011, the airline said in a stock exchange filing.

Goldsun aims for 20% revenue increase
FLYING HIGH : The group sees its TransAsia airlines as the major revenue driver this year, with its second A330-300 arriving in Taiwan tomorrow and new routes planned
Taipei Times

Goldsun Group (國產實業集團), which holds a major stake in TransAsia Airways Corp (TNA, 復興航空), expects consolidated revenues this year to grow at an annual rate of 20 percent, boosted primarily by an increase in passenger traffic amid a global economic recovery, a group official said yesterday.

With two wide-body Airbus 330-300 aircraft joining its fleet, TransAsia will be the major driver for the group, chairman Lin Shiaw-shinn (林孝信) told reporters on the sidelines of the group’s annual party.

“This year will be much better than last year,” Lin said.

The group also operates cement and property-developing company Goldsun Development & Construction Co (國產實業), and security service provider Taiwan Secom Co (中興保全).

The group made NT$50 billion (US$1.72 billion) in consolidated revenues last year, missing its revenue target of NT$55 billion because of global economic weakness.

Lin was optimistic about this year’s outlook, saying the group would aim to increase its revenue by 20 percent year-on-year.

TransAsia, which focuses on regional routes in Asia, is chaired by Lin Shiaw-shinn’s eldest son, Vincent Lin (林明昇).

The carrier just took delivery of its second A330-300 aircraft from French-based aircraft manufacturer Airbus SAS, which is scheduled to arrive at the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport tomorrow.

TransAsia plans to use the new aircraft to offer services on the Taipei-Shanghai route during the Lunar New Year holidays and afterwards on the Taipei-Osaka route.

TransAsia is also looking to launch new routes to Tokyo, Bangkok and Jakarta this year after the new planes join the fleet, boosting its capacity for international routes.

The airliner took delivery of its first A330-300 aircraft in November last year. The plane currently operates on flights to Singapore and Hokkaido, Japan.

The airline also expects to launch cross-continent routes with flying times of about nine hours, with cities in Australia, New Zealand, Guam, Hawaii and the Middle East as possible destinations.

TransAsia’s revenue hit a record high of NT$9.5 billion last year, up 8.67 percent from the previous year, the company said in a statement.

Net profit totaled NT$153.21 million, or NT$0.28 per share, in the first nine months of last year, giving it the highest earnings per share among the nation’s three listed airlines, the statement said.

China Airlines chair tapped to lead MOEA
The China Post news staff and CNA
February 4, 2013, 12:00 am TWN

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- The Executive Yuan yesterday named China Airlines Chairman Chang Chia-juch (張家祝) as the replacement for outgoing Economics Minister Shih Yen-shiang.

Having spent years in both the private and public sectors, Chang will utilize his experience and expertise to map out policies to bolster the country's economy, the Cabinet said in a statement.

Chang was recommended by several “heavyweight figures” during the government's search for the next economics minister, the Cabinet said. Despite Chang's relative lack of experience in the economic sector, he has extensive experience in running state-owned enterprises and excellent personal qualities, a Cabinet official was quoted by the Central News Agency as saying, pointing out that outstanding former Economics Ministers Chao Yao-tung (趙耀東) and Sun Yun-suan (孫運璿) also came to their posts without prior experience.

In addition to running the Republic of China's flag-carrier, Chang served as vice minister of transportation and communications and chaired state-owned businesses including the China Steel Corp. and Chunghwa Post Co., Ltd.

Meanwhile, Minister without Portfolio Kuan Chung-ming (管中閔) will take over Yiin Chii-ming's post (尹啟銘) as the head of the economic ministry's Council for Economic Planning and Development, the Cabinet said.

Kuan proved his financial expertise by drafting the government's contingency plans in response to the fiscal cliff crisis in the U.S. in December, the Cabinet said.

Vice Premier Jiang Yi-huah, who is set to take over as head of the Cabinet, said earlier yesterday that he hopes to finalize the upcoming Cabinet reshuffle before the Lunar New Year holiday, which starts Feb. 9.

Not all of the Cabinet positions will be changed, Jiang said, adding that he expects consultations with possible candidates to be completed soon.

Premier Sean Chen is scheduled to lead his Cabinet in an en masse resignation Feb. 7. After President Ma Ying-jeou approves Chen's resignation, he will formally appoint Jiang as the new premier, government sources said.

Jiang said he has been discussing the new Cabinet lineup with Ma and that he hopes the list can be finalized before the Lunar New Year break.

As part of the shakeup, the positions of economics minister, finance minister and head of the Council for Economic Planning and Development have received much attention, although Jiang has remained tight-lipped about individual appointments.

One day earlier, Chen stood up for Jiang, a former interior minister, and Transportation Minister Mao Chi-kuo, who is set to become the new vice premier. Jiang and Mao have faced accusations from some critics that they do not have backgrounds in economics and finance.

Jiang said he hopes the new lineup will coordinate their efforts better than the existing one, so that the Taiwanese public will have confidence in the new Cabinet, even though it is not led by a person with much experience in economics and finance.

I heard EVA AIR is joining Star Alliance this year. Is there a final date on when this will happen?

Those have been replaced with more-frequent high-speed rail connections between Taipei and Kaohsiung via Taichung.

And question: what is the possibility of a terminal expansion at Taipei's Sung Shan Airport, given that China-Taiwan flights are being added even further?
