More EVA Air aircraft I've seen online lately:

A330-300E, "Hello Kitty" (reg. B-16331)

A330-200, "Hello Kitty" (reg. B-16332)

And I am pleased to see this aircraft type that will hopefully replace the MD-90s the airline has in the fleet.

Lawmakers object to airfare increase
PUBLIC INTERESTS : While carriers complain of losses from operating domestic routes, they have been making huge profits from cross-strait flights, lawmakers said
Taipei Times

Lawmakers representing constituencies in the nation’s remote areas and outlying islands yesterday voiced their objection to a government plan to raise airfares to these regions, adding that there should not be any change to domestic airfares until complementary measures are in place.

The lawmakers voiced their objection in a public hearing held by the Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA), which was also attended by local government officials, domestic flight carriers, travel agents and hoteliers.

UNI Airways chief executive vice president Chen Shyong-jyh (陳雄智) said that the last time domestic airfares were adjusted was in 2005 after oil prices rose by 60 percent in 2004 compared with 1999 levels, adding that oil prices have risen by another 105 percent since 2004.

Aside from fuel costs, which account for about 30 percent of a carrier’s operating costs, aircraft maintenance costs have also risen in recent years, he said.

“We have to bear all these cost increases ourselves because we cannot raise ticket prices like the international flight carriers,” he said.

Chen added that local carriers are also plagued by seasonal demand, with extremely high demand during the peak season and extremely low demand during the off-peak season.

He also opposed a plan to bundle profitable cross-strait flights with unprofitable domestic flights, in which carriers would be given exclusive rights to operate profitable cross-strait routes if they are willing to continue offering unprofitable domestic flights.

“Most of our cross-strait flights go to second-tier or third-tier cities in China, and the profit margin is shrinking,” he said.

Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Legislator Liu Chao-hao (劉櫂豪) of Taitung County said that air services are vital to residents on the east coast and the outlying islands, both in terms of basic transportation needs and for tourism development.

He said the government would be punishing residents in these areas if it does not strictly monitor ticket prices.

“Ticket prices should not rise if the government does not have complementary measures in place,” he said.

Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Legislator Yang Ying-hsiung (楊應雄) of Kinmen County and independent Legislator Chen Hsuen-sheng (陳雪生) of Lienchiang County said that while airline companies have suffered losses from their domestic flight services, they have been making huge profits from the increase in the number of cross-strait and international flights.

DPP Legislator Yang Yao (楊曜) said the airlines should use the profits they make from cross-strait flights to cover losses on domestic flights.

The government should take into account not only oil prices, but also the quality of service, such as punctuality and comfort, when determining ticket prices, he said.

The CAA said it would continue to solicit opinions from stakeholders and initiate complementary measures to alleviate the impact on passengers.

Airline could face partial, full suspension of services
Taipei Times

Far Eastern Air Transport could face a partial or complete suspension of its flight services if it fails to improve its operations within a designated period of time, the Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) said yesterday.

The nation’ aviation authority sent an official warning to the domestic carrier on Monday evening after several lawmakers at the legislature’s Transportation Committee questioned the safety of the airline.

According to the agency, the airline reported that one of its aircraft experienced an in-flight shutdown on a flight from Taipei to Kinmen on April 13, which the airline said was caused by a bird strike.

An in-flight shutdown means that the aircraft’s engine shuts down when the aircraft is in the air. The incident can occur if an aircraft’s engine malfunctions, or it could be initiated by the flight crew for safety reasons.

On April 16, another Taipei-Kinmen flight was delayed for more than two hours after a signaling system abnormality was detected on the aircraft’s dashboard.

On Thursday last week, the airline was accused of continuing to offer flights from Kaohsiung to Guiyang City in China, despite a large crack in the windshield of the cockpit caused by a hailstone.

Although the airline had informed the CAA about these incidents, the agency said it had yet to see the airline adopt higher standards to address safety issues.

In addition to two senior flight safety inspectors, the agency decided to dispatch two other inspectors to the company to ensure that it follows all aspects of the aviation safety protocol laid out by the government.

Founded in 1957, the airline initially offered both domestic and international flight services. However, after a series of financial crises in 2008, the airline suspended flights for three years and only restarted services in 2011.

US to aid Taiwan in its ICAO efforts

The US Senate’s Committee on Foreign Relations passed a bill directing US Secretary of State John Kerry to assist Taiwan in obtaining observer status at the next triennial International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) meeting in September, giving a major boost to the nation’s bid to participate in the organization.

The bill now goes to the Senate, where it has bipartisan support, and could become US law in the next few months. A similar bill with bipartisan support is also being reviewed by the US House of Representatives.

“It is long overdue and a matter of international aviation safety to grant Taiwan observer status at ICAO,” Senate Committee on Foreign Relations Chairman Robert Menendez said.

Senator Menendez said that since Taiwan joined the US visa waiver program last year, travel between Taiwan and the US was sure to increase and “allowing the government of Taiwan observer status at ICAO assemblies will ensure that it has access to the technical information it needs to continue to conform its civil aviation practices with evolving international safety standards.”

Objections from Beijing have in the past kept Taiwan out of the ICAO, a specialized UN agency, but China’s attitude may be softening.

Earlier this year, Taiwanese Minister of Foreign Affairs David Lin (林永樂) said that Taiwan’s participation in the organization should not be affected by “political factors.”

He said that Taiwan’s participation in the ICAO was becoming more necessary as the number of flights between Taiwan, China, Japan and Southeast Asian countries continues to increase.

Hopefully, EVA Air will have either a B77W or A330 painted with the Star Alliance signature livery once it joins the largest airline alliance. For now, some special liveries from China Airlines:

A330-300, "50th Anniversary -- Since 1959" (reg. B-18312)

Source



A340-300, "The Official Airline for Climate Monitoring" (reg. B-18806)

Source



B747-400, "Skyteam signature" (reg. B-18206)

With limited sixth freedom opportunities, particularly to China (non-Chinese and non-Taiwanese aren't allowed on cross strait flights), arguably the most profitable market for Taiwanese carriers, I'm wondering if Taiwanese carriers really benefit from joining an alliance. If you're Taiwanese or Mainland Chinese, sure, CI and BR in SkyTeam and Star work for those flyers, but if you're not, then I can't really see them being useful other than US-Southeast Asia traffic, which is pretty well covered by incumbent carriers, and even Mainland Chinese carriers especially Air China.

I'm really curious on this point, actually. I keep hearing this point being brought up, but I only have US citizenship and was able to book and fly SFO-TPE-SZX and back without any problems.

Hohhot-Taipei direct flight opens

HOHHOT, June 3 (Xinhua) -- Taiwan-based airline EVA Air launched a direct flight route between Taipei and the mainland city of Hohhot on Monday.

It is the first route linking north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region and Taiwan and is expected to boost tourism on both sides of the strait.

Maiden flight BR728, carrying 177 passengers, took off from Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport at 10:55 a.m. and arrived in Hohhot at 2:35 p.m.on Monday, according to Hohhot Baita International Airport.

The return flight departed from Hohhot at 3:50 p.m. and will arrive in Taipei at 7:25 p.m.

The flight will be offered three times a week on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday, respectively.

Cheng Chuan-Yi, general manager of EVA Air, said Inner Mongolia will expect more Taiwanese tourists between June and September, while Taiwan will receive more travelers from Inner Mongolia in the winter.

"The direct flight will help strengthen cooperation and exchanges between the two regions," Cheng said.

A second direct flight linking Inner Mongolia's Hailar and Taipei will be launched on Tuesday. The flight time is expected to be 4 hours and ten minutes.

According to statistics from regional tourism authorities, 11,900 travelers from Inner Mongolia visited Taiwan in 2012. The figure for the first four months of 2013 reached 7,217.

The cost of an eight-day trip from Inner Mongolia to Taiwan has dropped from 9,000 yuan (1467.9 U.S. dollars) to 8,000 yuan due to the opening of the new flight.

Taipei Times
China Airlines set for return to black

Strong passenger traffic is likely to help China Airlines Ltd (CAL, 中華航空), the nation’s largest carrier, return to the black this quarter, but it could still report losses for the last quarter.

The company is forecast to report NT$100 million (US3.4 million) in losses for the April-to-June quarter, or a net loss of NT$0.02 per share following losses of NT$1.11 billion, NT$0.21 per share, in the previous quarter, analysts say.

“We have seen passenger business start to show seasonal momentum [during the summer vacation period],” CAL chairman Sun Hung-hsiang (孫洪祥) told reporters after the carrier held a press conference with Hawaiian Airlines about their code-sharing deal.

The average passenger load is expected to reach 80 percent to 85 percent in the July-to-September period, Sun said.

Sun said routes to Japan showed the strongest momentum, citing rising tourist numbers on the back of the recent sharp depreciation in the yen.

The passenger load on US routes also maintained a satisfactory level following the launch of the US Visa-Waiver Program last year, he added.

In the first half of the year, the carrier saw revenue contract 2.41 percent from a year earlier to NT$67.22 billion, CAL said.

Sun did not elaborate on the earnings outlook for this quarter.

CAL said it will begin a code-sharing service with Hawaiian Airlines on the Taipei-Honolulu route starting on Oct. 27.

The two carriers’ will increase their flight frequency on the route to 11 per week, after CAL’s began two weekly direct flights on June 2, in addition its regular daily flight with a stopover in Tokyo.

On Tuesday, Hawaiian Airlines launched its regular service between Taipei and Honolulu, with three flights per week, aiming at an average passenger load of 85 percent in the long run.

In other developments, CAL yesterday announced it would buy an Airbus SAS’ 340-300 aircraft it previously leased from Chailease Holding Co (中租控股) — the nation’s top leasing services provider — for NT$3.08 billion.
