AirAsia plane crash caused by faulty component, crew action, says Indonesia

Jakarta: Faulty equipment and the crew's "inability to control the aircraft" led an AirAsia A320 to crash into the Java Sea in 2014, killing all 162 people onboard, a report said on Tuesday.
Flight QZ8501 went down in stormy weather on December 28, during what was supposed to be a short flight from the Indonesian city of Surabaya to Singapore.
The crash of the Airbus A320-200 triggered a huge international search, with ships and aircraft from several nations involved in a lengthy hunt that was hampered by strong currents and bad weather. The bodies of 56 victims were never recovered.
In their final report into the accident released on Tuesday, Indonesia's official National Transportation Safety Committee said a major factor was a fault with a system that helps control the rudder's movement.
Cracked soldering in the component caused it to malfunction and send repeated warning messages to the pilots.

When they received the fourth warning, the pilots pulled circuit-breakers on one of the aircraft's computers, removing power from the faulty system in a bid to reset it. But in doing so, they also turned off the plane's autopilot.
"Subsequent flight crew action resulted in inability to control the aircraft," said the report. The plane went into a "prolonged stall condition that was beyond the capability of the crew to recover", it said.
It added the flight data recorders did not indicate the weather had affected the aircraft.
The report said the faulty component, the Rudder Travel Limiter, had suffered 23 problems in the past 12 months, citing maintenance records.

String of aviation disasters
A minister previously described how the plane climbed fast and then went into aerodynamic stall, losing lift, before it went down, while an investigator said the warning alarms were "screaming" as the pilots desperately tried to stabilise the aircraft.
Investigators had also revealed that the French co-pilot, Remi Plesel, was at the controls of the AirAsia plane in the moments before it crashed, rather than the more experienced pilot, Captain Iriyanto, who had around 20,000 hours of flying time.
Rescuers faced difficulties in the choppy waters of the Java Sea, but the main body of the plane was eventually located on the seabed by a Singapore navy ship and both black box data recorders were recovered.
Search efforts were finally called off in March after almost three months of hunting.

It was one of several aviation disasters in the sprawling archipelago in the past year, and the first major setback for Malaysia-based AirAsia group and its flamboyant boss Tony Fernandes after a spectacular run of success.
In August, a turbo-prop plane operated by Indonesian domestic carrier Trigana crashed in the remote, eastern region of Papua during a short flight in bad weather, killing all 54 people on board.
And in June an Indonesian military plane went down into a residential neighbourhood in the city of Medan, exploding in a fireball and killing 142 people.
Indonesian airlines are expanding rapidly after years of strong economic growth led to the emergence of a new middle class, who have the money to fly around the archipelago of more than 17,000 islands rather than travel by road or sea.
But existing infrastructure is inadequate and carriers are struggling to find enough well-trained personnel to keep up with the boom, experts say.

AirAsia X gets regulatory green light for USA flights

The approval from the US Department of Transportation (DOT) allows AirAsia X to operate services to any destination within the US market and it will now formalise its development plans to serve the market to coincide with the future delivery of new widebodied equipment. The airline is known to have been considering flights to several US states including Hawaii as part of its route expansion plans.

Long-haul low-cost operator AirAsia X has received clearance from the United States of America air service regulator to begin flights into the country, becoming the latest Asian budget carrier to secure approval to operate scheduled passenger flights to the USA after Hong Kong-based HK Express and Cebu Pacific from the Philippines.

The approval from the US Department of Transportation (DOT) allows AirAsia X to operate services to any destination within the US market and it will now formalise its development plans to serve the market to coincide with the future delivery of new widebodied equipment. The airline is known to have been considering flights to several US states including Hawaii as part of its route expansion plans.

"This is a major milestone for AirAsia X,” said Kamarudin Meranun, chief executive officer, AirAsia X Group. “Our expansion up until now has concentrated on Asia, Australasia and the Middle East, and we are excited about our first foray into an entirely new market as we look beyond Asia Pacific."

AirAsia X hopes to take its first steps into the transpacific market this year, as well as return to the Indian and European markets. Alongside supporting local demand, AirAsia X will link up with sister AirAsia short-haul businesses across Asia to provide feed to its long-haul operations, effectively developing a network airline concept.

The long-haul carrier has already stated its intent to introduce a multiple weekly link between Kuala Lumpur and Honolulu, a market that Malaysia Airlines previously served in the 1990s. Although Malaysia is a way down the list of largest source markets for Asian visitors into Hawaii, the largest current markets such as Japan, South Korea, China and Taiwan are destinations already well established within the AirAsia network to support transfer flows.

The Malaysian budget carrier’s chief executive officer, Benyamin Ismail confirmed to Routesonline during the World Routes air service development forum in Chengdu, China last September that plans were well advanced for the new flight, which simply awaited regulatory rubber-stamping, and suggested that the link could commence in the first half of 2017. The airline plans to offer a four times weekly service, rising to a daily frequency in the summer and will operate the route via Osaka in Japan to tap into the Japanese outbound market into Hawaii.

Data from the AirVision Market Intelligence tool from Sabre Airline Solutions shows bi-directional O&D demand between Asia and Hawaii’s main international gateway, Honolulu, growing at an average annual rate of 5.6 per cent since 2010. In fact in 2016, Honolulu was the fourth largest US market for Asian traffic behind New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco with an estimated 3.75 million two-way passengers and Japan was the source market for more than two thirds of this number.

Although the annual demand from Japan into Honolulu has slipped 1.6 per cent according to preliminary MIDT data for 2016, the market has grown by more than half (52.2 per cent) since the start of the decade. Other large source markets such as South Korea and Hong Kong have grown at a similar rate, but this is in the shadow of China where demand has more than trebled across the first six years of the decade, albeit remaining the third largest source market for O&D travellers.

China Everbright Group, the Henan Working Group and AirAsia Berhad have announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding to establish a low-cost carrier in China as a joint venture. AirAsia China will be based in Zhengzhou, the capital of Henan province, where the new low-cost carrier also plans to build a dedicated low-cost carrier terminal, an aviation training academy and a MRO facility. AirAsia Group CEO Tony Fernandes said, “We chose Zhengzhou as our base due to its strategic location and importance as a logistics hub. As China’s gateway to Europe, Zhengzhou sits at the centre of a vast rail, highway and air transport network that forms the linchpin of China’s development plans for its central and western regions. With President Xi Jinping’s vision for One Belt, One Road, Zhengzhou is set to become even more important, not least as the heart of low-cost air travel in North Asia." China Everbright Group is a conglomerate focused on financial services and controlled by the state-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council. Henan Working Group represents the Henan state government. AirAsia already operates joint ventures in India, Indonesia, the Philippines and Thailand and is about to relaunch its activities in Japan. It also has recently announced plans for a JV in Vietnam. AirAsia Group already serves 15 destinations in China, but does not yet operate from/to Zhengzhou, where China Southern Airlines (CZ, Guangzhou) is the dominant carrier today controlling approximately 23% of weekly capacity according to the ch-aviation capacity module.[25]

South East Asian LCC AirAsia plans to establish a new budget airline in Vietnam in a joint venture with Vietnamese partners, AirAsia announced in a statement to the Malaysia Stock Exchange on the 31st of March 2017. The new Vietnamese LCC is expected to commence its operations by early 2018. The company said that the new joint venture has been signed by its wholly owned subsidiary AirAsia Investment Limited (AAIL) with Vietnam’s Gumin Company Limited (Gumin), a businessman Tran Trong Kien and Hai Au Aviation Joint Stock Company (JV Co) on the 30th of March 2017. Gumin will own around 69.99% of the new LCC, AirAsia will have 30% and Tran will own the rest. According to AirAsia, the new venture will need investments of VND 1 trillion ($44 million), and the Kuala Lumpur-based company will contribute 30% of that after raising internal funding. AirAsia said that Vietnam’s geographical location provides the foundation and support for the joint venture’s plans to operate domestic and international underserved routes focusing primarily in providing connectivity domestically into key cities in Vietnam as well as internationally to ASEAN, China, Korea and Japan from 3 major hubs namely Ho Chi Minh, Hanoi and Da Nang. Vietnam is also the 5th largest aviation market in South East Asia after Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore. It was the fastest growing aviation market both in the world and in South East Asia in 2015 and 2016. In terms of passenger carriage (domestic and international), Vietnam’s air travel passenger carriage in 2016 was 52 million, with its growth dwarfing its ASEAN peers’, charting approximately 28% year-over-year growth in 2016 vis-à-vis its ASEAN peer’s average growth of approximately 10%. Vietnam’s domestic and international market has also doubled in size since 2013 and 2011 respectively. Domestic passenger growth in 2016 was approximately 25% while international growth was over 30%. With the plan, AirAsia will enter the competitive market of airlines’ industry in Vietnam and challenge the current LCC players – VietJet and Jetstar Pacific.[26]

AirAsia Bhd is reportedly planning to set up a subsidiary company in Cambodia to cater to the anticipated rise in the number of passengers travelling to Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Sihanoukville from Malaysia. The subsidiary would be named AirAsia Cambodia, Cambodia news publication Khmer Times said in its news report today, citing Public Works and Transport Sun Chanthol. It was reported that the idea of forming AirAsia Cambodia was raised by AirAsia chief executive officer Tan Sri Tony Fernandes in his meeting with Cambodia's president Hun Sen during the World Economic Forum on Asean last week. Chanthol said the budget carrier's decision to form a subsidiary in Cambodia "reflected the aviation industry's confidence in the country's open skies policy", adding that the proposal has been submitted to the Council of Ministers for approval.[23][24]
