Mauritius now part of AirAsia X’s growing route network
May 26, 2016, Thursday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2016/05...route-network/

KUCHING: AirAsia X Bhd (AirAsia X) added another destination into its route network and announced Mauritius as the next idyllic place it will connect directly from Kuala Lumpur commencing October 4, 2016.

According to a press release, this brand new destination will be operated on the Airbus A330-300 with a capacity of 377 seats, inclusive of 12 award-winning Premium Flatbeds, and marks the AirAsia X Group’s 22nd destination throughout its route network.

Issop Patel, High Commissioner of Mauritius for Malaysia launched this brand new destination at a press conference yesterday.

AirAsia X chief executive officer Benyamin Ismail said at the press conference, “At AirAsia X, we aim to provide everyone with the opportunity to fly further at the most affordable rate.

We are very proud to be the only airline to offer nonstop direct flights on this route, and to add Mauritius into our growing list of nonstop travel options from Kuala Lumpur.

“We are sure that the announcement of this route will definitely excite the market, especially here in Malaysia. Apart from that, the flight to the paradise of Mauritius is perfectly timed to connect to all points in our vast network in Asia and Australasia using the FlyThru service.”

Situated in the southeast coast of the African continent, Mauritius was once a volcanic island and is famous for its beautiful beach setting with white sand, warm sub-tropical climate and a topaz shoreline of the Indian Ocean.

Guests can choose to relax on the longest beach in Mauritius at Belle Mare Beach sipping fresh sugarcane juice, or experience scuba diving, as the island is known for its excellent underwater visibility and warm temperatures that attract an abundance of marine life.

For a little bit of culture and history, head to the capital of Mauritius, Port Louis which boasts a plethora of colonial monuments or follow the pilgrimage route to Grand Bassin, whereby the second largest statue of Lord Shiva in the world is standing at the entrance to the natural crater lake on the mountains.

In Mauritius, guests will be greeted to a multitude of ethnic groups in the country, inviting them to absorb the diversity from mouth-watering food to the many cultural festivals available throughout the year.

Malaysia Airlines keen to develop charter segment
Thursday, 2 June 2016 | MYT 8:28 PM
http://www.thestar.com.my/business/b...arter-segment/



Simmons, seen here at the unveiling of the new A330 Business Class seats in March,
says there is stronger demand for chartered aircraft for the China-Malaysia route.


KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airlines Bhd is keen to develop its charter business segment and grow revenue contribution to the group by utilising its Airbus A380 aircraft.

Chief commercial officer Paul Andrew Simmons said the segment’s current contribution to the group was significant albeit still in the single-digit percentage.

“The great thing about using an A380 for chartered business is that our cost per seat is very effective as it provides 500 seats that will be fully taken up,” he told a press conference after signing a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Andalusia Travel & Tours Sdn Bhd and Rayhar Travels Sdn Bhd here on Thursday.

Simmons said there was stronger demand for chartered aircraft from the China-Malaysia route segment, primarily the China-Sabah route.

On the MoU, he said the collaboration would present an opportunity for the airline to continue developing its charter business for the religious market segment.

“We are not projected to make a profit until 2018 but we are off to a good start because the charter business will help (with improving the company’s financial performance),” he added.

Meanwhile, Andalusia managing director Ibrahim Mat Sin said the chartering of the A380 aircraft was crucial considering the growing number of umrah pilgrims year-on-year.

“We have scheduled 53 chartered flights with Malaysia Airlines, which provides 24,150 seats, to fly to Madinah and Jeddah from Nov 10, 2016 to July 6, 2017,” he added. - Bernama

We are very happy to have these two aircraft as part of the AirAsia X family as it gives us the right capacity to introduce more frequencies and connectivity into our route network,” CEO Benyamin Ismail said in a statement.

KUALA LUMPUR: Malindo Air has teamed up with Turkish Airlines to tap new markets as well as enable passengers to find connections easier when travelling between Asean and Europe.

In a statement, Malindo Air chief executive officer Chandran Rama Muthy (pic) said the interline partnership would make travel seamless from this region, reward frequent travellers on Malindo Air and offer passengers even more options when travelling to Turkey and beyond.

AirAsia eyes Airbus A321
20 JUNE 2016 @ 11:00 AM
http://www.nst.com.my/news/2016/06/1...es-airbus-a321



SEPANG: AirAsia, Asia’s largest budget airline, is looking at the new longer-range Airbus A321 aircraft as part of its future fleet renewal programme. “It’s early days but certainly (in) the ballpark.

“It’s certainly something we will discuss,” AirAsia group chief executive officer (CEO) and co-founder Tan Sri Tony Fernandes told the New Straits Times. AirAsia as a group owns 170 A320s of which its Malaysia operations own 80 aircraft, Thailand 47 aircraft, Indonesia 23 aircraft while Philippines and India owns 14 and 6 aircraft, respectively.

The single-aisle, twin-engine A321 is the largest member of the Airbus A320 family and can fly longer routes, for example from Europe to the United States’ East Coast. Airbus said the aircraft accommodates 185 passengers in a two-class configuration while for charter and low-cost operators, the plane can sit up to 220 passengers.

In 2011, AirAsia made a record order of 200 A320neo (new engine option) planes worth US$178 billion. The purchase made the budget carrier Airbus’s biggest airline customer for its single-aisle product line.

The airline placed an additional 100 A320s of which 64 A320neo and 36 A320ceo (current engine option) in 2012 with British Prime Minister David Cameron witnessing the signing of documents between Fernandes and Airbus president and CEO Fabrice Brégier.

Airbus said to near US$12.6b AirAsia deal for A321neos
Monday, 11 July 2016 | MYT 4:33 PM
http://www.thestar.com.my/business/business-news/2016/07/11/airbus-said-to-near-us$12b-airasia-deal-for-a321neos/



Airbus Group SE is poised to win an order for as many as 100 jetliners from AirAsia Bhd.

LONDON: Airbus Group SE is poised to win an order for as many as 100 jetliners from AirAsia Bhd., people familiar with the matter said.

The deal may be announced as early as tomorrow, said the people, who asked not to be named because the discussions are private. The purchase would consist likely of A321neo narrow-body aircraft, which have a list price of $125.7 million apiece. Buyers typically negotiate discounts.

The Asian low-cost carrier will use at least some of the narrow-body planes to provide stepped-up service to India, one of the people said. Home to the world's fastest-growing major aviation market, India posted 20 percent growth in air travel last year, according to the International Air Transport Association. In comparison, passenger traffic in China rose about 10 percent and less than 5 percent in the U.S., IATA said in a December presentation.

AirAsia and Airbus declined to comment.

If AirAsia's potential purchase is announced in the next few days, it's likely to rank as one of the biggest orders to come out of this week's Farnborough International Airshow in the U.K.

AirAsia is the largest Airbus customer by number of aircraft, and is ordering more to add to its total fleet of 199, of which 29 belong to its long-haul unit AirAsia X. Two years ago, at the same show, AirAsia group Chief Executive Officer Tony Fernandes said he’d buy 50 A330-900neo airliners in one of the biggest deals of the annual show.

Airbus rose as much as 1.33 euros, or 2.7 percent, to 50.36 euros in Paris. The stock has lost about 19 percent this year. - Bloomberg

AirAsia buys 100 A321neo planes from Airbus
BY DALJIT DHESI Wednesday, 13 July 2016 | MYT 7:41 AM
http://www.thestar.com.my/business/b...s-from-airbus/

22 mars 2016 - AIRBUS INDUSTRIE - A 321 NEO (engines Leap) D-AVXB c/n 6839 - LFBO - TLS by gimbellet, on Flickr

LONDON: AirAsia has signed a firm order with Airbus for the purchase of 100 A321neo aircraft, bringing the total number of A320 Family ordered to 575.

This reaffirms the carrier's position as the largest airline customer for the Airbus single aisle category.

The contract marks the first order placed by the low cost carrier for the largest model in the best-selling A320 Family.

To date, over 170 A320s have already been delivered to the airline and are flying with its units in Malaysia, India, Indonesia, Japan and the Philippines.

AirAsia group CEO Tan Sri Tony Fernandes said the A321neo will be operated on the airlines most populous routes and at airports with infrastructure constraints.

Apart from this it will also allow the airline to bring higher passenger volumes with same slots, which will provide benefits to the airports like more efficient operations, higher revenues from passenger service charges and more airport retail purchases, he said.

He said the airlines currently operates close to 1,000 flights per day to more than 120 destinations in 24 countries.

The group recorded a robust load factor of 85% in the first quarter of 2016, up 8 percentage points from the same period last year, Fernandes said, adding that he is confident of maintaining his momentum going forward.

The A321neo will help to meet ongoing strong demand as well as reduce the airlines cost per available seat kilometer across the group which will translate to lower airfares for guests, he noted.

The A320 Family is the world's best-selling single aisle product line with nearly 12,600 orders since launch and more than 7,100 aircraft delivered to some 320 operators worldwide.

AirAsia orders 200 more engines for US$2.7b
Wednesday, 13 July 2016 | MYT 6:52 PM
http://www.thestar.com.my/business/b...-more-engines/

22 mars 2016 - AIRBUS INDUSTRIE - A 321 Néo D-AVXA c/n 6673 engines Pratt & Witney - LFBO - TLS by gimbellet, on Flickr

LONDON: Low-cost carrier AirAsia has ordered 200 more CFM LEAP-1A engines to power its 100 new Airbus A321neo aircraft which expects to deliver 15% fuel efficiency and reduction in carbon monoxide emissions.

It said on Wednesday the order, which expands its LEAP engine fleet to nearly 730 engines, is valued at US$2.7bil at list price.

AirAsia Group CEO Tan Sri Tony Fernandes said this order for the larger A321neo “is an important element in our long-term growth and expansion strategy”.

“Choosing the right engine to power them is critical to the success of that strategy. For us, the LEAP-1A was the obvious choice. This engine has demonstrated the promised 15% fuel efficiency and we are quite familiar with the reliability inherent in CFM products and the impact that this has on our operations.”

As the single largest Airbus A320 operator in the Asia-Pacific region, AirAsia operates a fleet of 170 CFM-powered Airbus A320s with 304 still to be delivered.

The LEAP-1A engine powered the first flight of the Airbus A321neo in February 2016. The engine is on track for entry into service in mid-2016 on the initial A320neo and will provide operators with a 15% improvement in fuel efficiency, a 50% margin to new emissions regulations; a dramatically lower noise signature; and CFM’s industry-leading reliability and low overall operating costs.

AirAsia said the agreement for the engines was signed by Tassapon Bijleveld, CEO of Thai AirAsia – who represented Fernandes -- while CFM International was represented by its president and CEO Jean-Paul Ebanga.

It was witnessed by AirAsia group head of engineering Anaz Ahmad Tajuddin and vice president and general manager of CFM parent company GE Aviation Chaker Chahrour.

AirAsia, a pioneer in low-cost travel, has been a CFM customer for more than a decade. AirAsia was an early LEAP customer and placed its initial order for 400 LEAP-1A engines — the largest in aviation history at the time — to power A320neo aircraft in June 2011. The airline placed a follow-on order for 128 additional engines in 2013.

AirAsia began operations in 2001 and has continued to see steady growth. Today, the airline and its subsidiaries operate close to 1,000 flights per day to more than 120 destinations in 24 countries.

MAVCOM introduces consumer protection code for air travellers
BY BILQIS BAHARI - 18 JULY 2016 @ 1:06 PM
http://www.nst.com.my/news/2016/07/1...air-travellers

KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Aviation Commission (MAVCOM) has introduced the Malaysia Aviation Consumer Protection Code 2016, which is designed to protect consumer rights in Malaysia.

The code, the first in Malaysia's aviation industry, is adapted from international guidelines such as the Montreal Convention 1999 as well as the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Core Principles on Consumer Protection. MAVCOM director of consumer affairs, Pushpalatha Subramaniam said that under the code, consumers' rights are clearly defined and protected under the national law.

"These rights cover dealings with airlines, airports and other aviation service providers," she said today at a media briefing.

The Consumer Protection Code 2016 covers transparency which includes full disclosure of airfare, air passenger rights including denied boarding, flight cancellations and lost, damaged or delayed baggage, to name a few. Complaints made under the code will have to first be addressed by airlines and airports within 30 days to resolve.

MAVCOM is an independent body set up under the Malaysian Aviation Commission Act 2015. The principle role of the body, which commenced operations on March 1, 2016, is to regulate economic and commercial matters related to civil aviation in Malaysia.

Some of its responsibilities in addition to consumer protection include commercial licensing of airlines and ground handlers, setting airport charges and air traffic rights allocation.

PUTRAJAYA, MALAYSIA/NEW DELHI – Malaysia Airlines Berhad inked a deal with Boeing on Wednesday to buy 50 B737 MAX aircraft valued at $5.5 billion, signaling that the troubled state-owned air carrier is on track to recovery.

“Malaysia Airlines is now on a path to growth across the ASEAN region. This new aircraft order will set the stage for our continued recovery and success into the next decade,” said Peter Bellew, the airline’s new chief executive.

MAB placed 25 firm orders and 25 purchase rights for the upgraded version of the Boeing 737 with deliveries commencing in 2019 as it sought to replace some of its aging fleet. MAB currently operates 56 B737s.

Bellew said the new planes will cut aircraft maintenance costs by 40 percent and fuel costs by 15 percent.

“With the 737 MAX’s longer range capabilities, we will be able to connect our passengers to more destinations, in greater comfort and with superior economics,” he added.

Bellew took over as CEO from Christoph Mueller on July 1 after the latter left less than halfway through his three-year contract.

Mueller was brought in by Malaysia sovereign fund Khazanah Nasional Berhad as part of its 6 billion ringgit (about $1.5 billion) recovery plan for MAB, which Bellew described as “the largest turnaround of any airline in the history of aviation.”

The plan unveiled in August 2014 involved delisting the company and making it wholly owned by Khazanah, cutting 6,000 jobs and doing away with unprofitable routes, especially in the Europe sector.

Years of mismanagement coupled with stiff competition have seen the airline bleeding heavily.

“We bought a lot of things, paid too much money,” Bellew said at a press conference after the signing ceremony.

To add to its woes, the company was hit by the twin tragedies of flights MH370 and MH17. MH370 disappeared from radar on March 8, 2014, while en route to Beijing with 239 people on board. Four months later, MH17 was shot down over conflict-ridden eastern Ukraine on July 17, killing all 298 people on board.

Bellew, who was formerly with Dublin-based Ryanair Holdings PLC, said he will continue with the turnaround plan and he projected the company will show a profit by 2018.

“The Olympics for us is to try get a listing sometime in March 2019 depending on how overall international capital markets go. If you work backward five quarters, we will be profitable in 2018,” he said. “That means we have a lot more to do in the next five quarters to make sure Malaysia Airlines gets back on track.”

Having scrapped many of its European routes, the airline is aiming to grow its share of the Asian market, including China, South Korea, India and Pakistan. For long-haul routes it is not plying, MAB is relying on a code-share agreement with Dubai-based Emirates.

India meanwhile inked a deal worth some $1 billion with Boeing Co. in New Delhi on Wednesday for the acquisition of four more Poseidon-8I maritime patrol aircraft for its navy, defense sources said.

The aircraft are designed for long-range anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare, and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions, according to Boeing.

India already has eight P-8Is, which were inducted into the navy between May 2013 and October 2015. The additional four are expected to be delivered in the next three years, the sources said.

The deal was signed during the ongoing visit of Frank Kendall, U.S. undersecretary of defense for acquisition, technology and logistics, who heads the U.S.-India Defense Technology and Trade Initiative on the U.S. side.

With an operating range of 1,200 nautical miles, the P-8Is have been used in the ongoing search-and-rescue mission for a Russian-made AN-32 transport aircraft that vanished with 29 people on board over the Bay of Bengal last Friday.
