MAS swings back to profitability in Q3
Published: 2010/11/25
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html

Malaysia Airlines says that it has swung back to profitability for the third quarter ending 30 September 2010, posting a net profit of RM233 million, on the back of a 15 per cent increase in revenue.

The national carrier reported a RM123 million operating profit, rebounding from an operating loss of RM77 million in 3Q09.

The airline said it recorded its highest seat factor in 15 years at 78.6 per cent in 3Q10 with 3.3 million passengers compared to 76.7 per cent in 3Q09.

It says balance sheet remains healthy with cash and negotiable deposits of some RM2.26 billion as at 30 September 2010.

Managing Director Tengku Azmil Zahruddin says that moving forward to 2011, the airline is positioning itself for profitable growth by taking delivery of new aircraft, identifying new growth areas and maximising revenues through aggressive sales & marketing.

Says it took delivery of two new B737-800 aircraft earlier this month and will have one more aircraft by end 2010. Funding for all incoming aircraft in 2011 has also been lined up.

"We are in a challenging and unpredictable industry and have to be mindful of the many things - economic fluctuations, rising fuel prices, even volcanic eruptions - that can quickly have an impact on our business,” Azmil said. - Reuters

MAS to focus on new Asia routes
Published: 2010/11/25
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html

Malaysian Airline System Bhd (MAS) will concentrate on new routes within Asia in the future, said Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Tengku Datuk Azmil Zahruddin, citing the region as new economic sparkle.

"Asia is where the growth is currently. If you look at the growth rates projected for the next 10 to 20 years, this is where all the action is and this is where we are.

"And we have to be a player in the Asian market," he said at the Check-In Asia conference here today.

"It is really a rebalancing exercise, and there are going to be a lot of new routes but we are not going back to where we were before but actually moving forward where the growth is," he said.

Previously, the airline had trimmed down its capacity by about 15 to 20 per cent, mainly on non-profitable European routes.
"We are not going to reinstate the old routes, but we are still on the lookout for more long haul routes," Azmil said.

He added that it would not be possible for the airline to reinstate its previous capacity in one year.

"The previous loss in capacity was over a period of years and currently, we don't even have sufficient aircraft to regain capacity. Moreover, it is not prudent to grow that fast," he said. -- Bernama

AirAsia chalks up increased pre-tax profit of RM309.857m in Q3
Thu, 25 Nove 2010 21:07

KUALA LUMPUR: AirAsia Bhd recorded an increased pre-tax profit of RM309.857 million for the third quarter ended September 30, 2010, compared with RM136.260 million in the same period last year.

In a filing to Bursa Malaysia, the airline said its revenue appreciated to RM987.558 million from RM739.668 million previously.

The airline attributed the higher revenue to several factors, including the higher average fare and the contribution from ancillary income.

AirAsia said the increase was supported by a 12% growth in passenger volume and an average fare that was 22% higher at RM173 as compared with the RM142 achieved in the third quarter of last year.

The seat load factor was at 78% compared with 75% in the same period last year.

For the nine-month period ended Sept 30, 2010, its pre-tax profit advanced to RM709.078 million compared with RM398.538 million in the same period last year.

The airline's revenue increased to RM2.806 billion from RM2.285 billion previously.

During a conference call, AirAsia group chief executive, Tony Fernandes, said based on the current forward booking trend, the underlying passenger demand in the fourth quarter for the Malaysian, Thai and Indonesian operations remain positive.

"November and December will be very promising and the first quarter of next year will also be stronger," he added.

He said the fourth quarter is the peak season for tourist arrivals and a higher demand for leisure travel in Thailand.

In Indonesia, he said, the outlook for the final quarter is positive with encouraging passenger and yield growth.

Indonesia's focus on longer international routes is expected to continue to drive improved financial performance, he said.

Fernandes said AirAsia will stay focused on its own strategy by driving down costs, raising yields, improving productivity, expanding its route network and strengthening the emotional bonds with the region's communities.

"We are heading into our strongest quarter on the back of what is already an amazing performance this year. We are looking forward to delivering the numbers for the fourth quarter, actually," he added.

AirAsia axes Brunei-KK flights, begins to refund passengers
25 November 2010
Borneo Bulletin

AirAsia has started the refunding process for customers who have booked to fly between Bandar Seri Begawan (BSB) and Kota Kinabalu (KK) after January 3, 2011 as the popular budget air carrier will discontinue the daily flight after the third day of the New Year.

Just barely over a year from its maiden direct flight from KK to BSB, AirAsia has decided to discontinue the service.

In a telephone interview, an AirAsia official in Kuala Lumpur confirmed the decision has been made purely because of "commercial reasons", and did not elaborate further.

Meanwhile, Brunei Tourism chief, Sheikh Jamaluddin Sheikh Mohammed, said he is somewhat saddened to hear the news. He said the budget carrier's direct flight between Brunei and KK has been benefiting tourists who want to travel or make stopovers between Brunei and KK, especially tourists from Australia and others.

"Regardless of the airlines ... it is sad to hear that they are stopping ... I hope there is something that Brunei Tourism can do but there isn't.

"Maybe I should call Tony (Tony Fernandes, CEO of AirAsia) to find out, I was the one who helped him with the logistics ... you know ...

"Well, when they say it is for 'commercial reasons' then there is not much one could do ... because at the end of the day it will come down to dollars and cents."

He said, (in developing the tourism industry) connectivity is the key, which brings in tourists to the country. "If you break this connectivity; you are cutting your potential," he added.

He said there has been good traffic from Australia; they come to Brunei and then go to Kota Kinabalu.

The Bulletin asked the AisAsia official whether the 'commercial reasons' included rerouting or was it to benefit other routes, or due to discouraging passenger load factor between KK and BSB, but the official did not want to elaborate further.

In September 2009, AirAsia boosted its East Malaysia connectivity by launching services from Kota Kinabalu to Brunei Darussalam.

The establishment of the direct flight was hoped to stimulate travel, enhance connectivity and also tap into the existing market from Brunei and feed the traffic to AirAsia's vast network in the region and beyond, including routes serviced by AirAsia's long-haul affiliate, AirAsia X.

Kota Kinabalu is AirAsia's second and biggest hub after Kuala Lumpur. It serves nine domestic routes that include Penang, Johor Bahru, Kuala Lumpur, Kuching, Sibu, Miri, Labuan, Tawau and Sandakan, while the international sectors are Macau, Shenzhen, Clark (Manila), Jakarta and Singapore.

Now with the discontinuation of AirAsia's BSB-KK flight, air passengers looking for budget travelling will have to look elsewhere as it will affect both local air travellers and foreign tourists, especially when Brunei is trying to promote itself as a gateway to Borneo.

However, AirAsia said its BSB-KL route remains strong, and as a result it had also added an additional flight recently.

AirAsia said it would continue to look for opportunities to expand the network and increase frequencies.

Only Royal Brunei Airlines will fly to KK from Brunei from January 4, 2011. RBA operates 14 flights a week to KK. It operates twice daily except on Wednesday (three flights) and Thursday and Saturday (one flight).

Agree that GA has not yet good and extensive International coverage and it is something that Garuda is building up now. However, I respectfully disagree with your assessment that Indonesian prefer Lion Air to Garuda for domestic travel.

Lion Air is indeed popular but attracts only LCC passengers. Garuda's domestic routes are money making routes for them and very popular among business travelers - the type of passengers that Garuda really want.

AirAsia to charge passengers who check in at its counters

Business Desk
The Star
Publication Date : 26-11-2010

AirAsia would start charging its passengers who check in at its counters within the next three months.

Web check-in is free but we will start charging counter check-ins within the next three months. We want to drive everyone to the website, AirAsia group chief executive officer Tony Fernandes said In a teleconference on Thursday (November 25).

He did not disclose further details.

Yesterday, Fernandes also said it was the carrier's best-ever quarter and he was confident of an even better fourth quarterwithout disclosing further details.

Meanwhile, low-cost carrier AirAsia's net profit surged 151.6 per cent to 327.3 million (US$1.05 million) for the quarter ended September 30, against 130.1 million a year earlier, on the back of strong growth in passenger volumes, ancillary income and higher average fares.

Revenue for the third quarter was 33.5 per cent higher at 987.5 million ringgit ($315.4 million) from 739.7 million previously. It reported earnings per share of 11.90 sen versus 5.3 sen a year ago. For the nine months ended Sept 30, AirAsia posted a net profit of 750.3 million ringgit ($239 million) on revenue of 2.8 billion ringgit ($894.5 million).

The revenue growth was supported by a 12 per cent rise in passenger volumes and average fare that was 22 per cent higher.

Fernandes said it was the carrier's best-ever quarter and he was confident of an even better fourth quarter.

His optimism was based on the strong demand and forward booking. He said AirAsia would continue its focus on lowering costs, improving returns and expanding its network.

During the quarter, the group carried a total 6.48 million passengers while the load factor increased to 78 per cent from 75 per cent a year earlier.

Fernandes said the carrier's cost per available seat kilometre stood at 3.62 US cents quarter-on-quarter but increased year-on-year due to the rise in the average fuel price.

Commenting on the ancillary growth, he said he expected the spending per pax would reach RM50 per person soon from RM44 now.

He said the group would continue to identify ancillary income opportunities. The budget carrier would start charging its passengers who check in at its counters within the next three months.

On fuel hedge, he said the group had hedged 33 per cent of its requirement for the rest of the year at $83.38 per barrel, and aimed to place more hedges for 2011. It added that the current market price was averaging US$97 a barrel.

Asked for his opinion on the fuel price next year, he said: If I know that I would not be in this business We have budgeted fuel price to be at $95 a barrel.

Fernandes said the group would make a decision within three weeks to finalise the deployment of the number of planes for 2012.

We have revised the number a bit. We are looking at 12 to 16 planes, he said.

AirAsia Indonesia ops may pass Malaysia's
Published: 2010/11/26
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html

AirAsia Bhd chief executive officer Tony Fernandes said the carrier’s Indonesian operations may surpass its Malaysian unit, which is now more than three times as big.

The Indonesia business may pass Malaysia in the “not-too- distant future,” Fernandes said today in a Bloomberg TV interview in Kuala Lumpur, without elaboration. “We’re really in the best playground for growth.”

Southeast Asia’s largest budget carrier more-than-doubled third-quarter net income as it grows its main Malaysian unit and ventures in Indonesia and Thailand to take advantage of rising regional travel demand. The airline plans to add as many as 12 planes a year and is targeting opportunities in Vietnam, the Philippines, India and China, Fernandes said.

“We believe that the market has underestimated AirAsia’s growth potential in riding the sector recovery,” Juliana Ramli, an analyst at HwangDBS Vickers Sdn Bhd in Kuala Lumpur, wrote in a note to clients today. The analyst recommends buying the stock.

AirAsia rose 5.5 per cent to RM2.69 at 11:49 am in Kuala Lumpur. The stock has risen 95 per cent this year compared with a 19 per cent gain on the FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI Index.

The carrier, based in the Malaysian capital, reported net income of RM327.3 million for the third quarter, with sales climbing 34 per cent to RM987.6 million, the company said yesterday.

Indonesia AirAsia’s passenger number rose 8 per cent to 1.1 million in the quarter, according to a statement. The Malaysian operations boosted passenger numbers 12 per cent to 4 million, it said.

Malaysian Airline System Bhd returned to profit in the same period to Sept. 30, reporting net income of RM233.2 million, it said in a separate exchange filing yesterday.

AirAsia could also be “very interested” if Airbus SAS decides to offer a revamped version of its A320 single-aisle plane with a new engine, Fernandes said. The Toulouse, France- based planemaker has said it is considering such move.

Airbus is already working through orders for 175 A320s from AirAsia, according to data on its website. -- Bloomberg

MAS stages turnaround
By Goh Thean Eu Published: 2010/11/26
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...asmor/Article/



MALAYSIAN Airline System Bhd (MAS) (3786)says third quarter net profit has soared to RM233 million, after posting losses in the previous quarter as well as the same quarter last year.

The turnaround was mainly due to record passenger numbers and better yields, the national airline said.

MAS, which posted its highest quarterly seat factor in 15 years at 79 per cent, said higher net profit was also driven by hedging gains of RM156 million, compared with the RM202 million hedging loss in third quarter of 2009.

The carrier, which posted a net loss of RM535 million in the second quarter this year and RM300 million in the same quarter last year, registered a 15 per cent increase in revenue to RM3.4 billion against the same quarter in 2009.
The higher sales was also due to better airline capacity and cargo business.

"We have registered a strong quarter. Usually, when you increase capacity, you may experience lower load factor, but this is not the case. We have not only increased our seat factor to a record high, the highest since 1995, but we have also managed to increase our yield by 7 per cent.

"It basically shows us that we are on the right track," MAS managing director Tengku Datuk Seri Azmil Zahruddin said in a media briefing in Petaling Jaya, Selangor, yesterday.

Azmil added that the carrier has restructured its hedge levels to 33 per cent at US$93 (RM293) a barrel from 40 per cent at US$100 (RM313) a barrel.

MAS cargo business has grown above industry average. Its cargo arm MASkargo registered a 34 per cent increase in revenue, as well as a fourth consecutive quarter of profits.

Its load factors outperformed other airlines in the Asia Pacific by 4 per cent as reported by the Association of Asia Pacific Airlines.

During the quarter, the company did not receive any compensation from aircraft manufacturer Airbus, and hinted that it was not likely to receive any in the fourth quarter.

MAS posted a positive operating cashflow of RM190 million during the quarter, which will help in the progress payments for its fleet renewal. As at September 30 2010, it has more than RM2.2 billion in cash and negotiable deposits.

"Moving forward to 2011, we are positioning ourselves for profitable growth by taking delivery of new aircraft, identifying new growth areas and maximising revenues through aggressive sales and marketing," Azmil said.

AirAsia X spreads its wings to Christchurch
Thursday December 2, 2010
http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp...650&sec=nation



Connecting people: Fernandes, Tourism New Zealand general manager Mark
Frood (second from left) and New Zealand high commissioner David Kersey
(third from right) posing for a picture after the launch of the new AirAsia X
route Wednesday.


KUALA LUMPUR: AirAsia X has introduced its latest international route — from Kuala Lumpur to Christchurch, New Zealand — starting April 1.

There will be four non-stop weekly flights.

To mark the new route, an all-in fare from as low as RM199 one way from Kuala Lumpur to Christchurch has been introduced for the booking period starting Friday to Sunday. It is for the travel period from April 1 to Nov 10.

AirAsia X founder and AirAsia group chief executive officer Datuk Seri Dr Tony Fernandes said he was pleased with the new service, adding that 2010 had been a busy year for AirAsia X with the launch of six new destinations in India, Korea, Japan, Iran and France.

Speaking at a press conference yesterday, he said the 13-hour flight between Kuala Lumpur and Christchurch would stimulate new travel demands and allow New Zealanders to use Kuala Lumpur as a gateway to South-East Asian countries.

“AirAsia X expects to carry 89,000 passengers on this route within the first 12 months of the service,” he said.

Passengers flying on the route can also experience “Premium FlatBed seats” on the new A330 aircraft.

LATEST: Nearly 11,000 cheap Air Asia tickets were snapped up in the first two hours of their launch today.

The cut-price Malaysian airline launched ticket sales for flights between Christchurch and Kuala Lumpur.

Packages to Bali, other Asian destinations and Paris and London also proved popular, travel agents said this afternoon.

The $99 one-way fare promotion runs until Sunday.

The first Air Asia flight from Christchurch to Kuala Lumpur leaves on April 1.

Earlier, customers trying to nab cheap flights from Christchruch to Malaysia have encountered problems booking their tickets online.

Thousands of customers flooded the Air Asia website, www.airasiax.com, when the $99 one-way fare promotion opened at noon.

The Malaysian-based cut-price airline will fly out of Christchurch four days a week from April 1.

One Christchurch customer, who tried to book a flight online early this afternoon, said the booking experience went smooth until she submitted payment and the website said it had not accepted her payment.

The website then directed her back to the original booking dates she had filed but with prices about double the special $99 offer.

The cut-price long-haul airline will start a four-weekly service between the two cities from April 1.

Specials on the Air Asia website to Paris could mean customers could potentially fly from Christchurch to Paris for about $700 return.

I woke up early this morning only to grap the promotional ticket RM199 one way Kuala Lumpur to Christchurch (Return RM400 ++) On the dot 7.00 am i on line but in the middle of transaction suddently interupted with line buzzy and i have to start it all over again. But within a minute, the promotional price disappear. Meaning someone has been taken it. So there left a bit higher price but still 70% cheap rather than others. So i did and sucessfull grap that ticket for whole family. Can you imagine KL-CH-KL for 4 seat is only RM4000.00.

I save almost RM6000 on ticket compared to my last S'pore - Sydney - S'pore trip (7 hours flight with Qantas-is the cheapest that time) but this CHC one a far distance away with exceed 12 hours flight i guess. So where else i can get a huge discount like this...

So....ALIVE AIR ASIA...WELL DONE AIR ASIA..TQ AIR ASIA..
