Nippon Airways Net Profit Falls 11 Pct.
07.29.2005, 03:50 AM

All Nippon Airways said Friday its net profit for the April-June quarter fell 11 percent from a year earlier, due to a special loss on the sale of real estate. Separately, Japan's No. 2 carrier, commonly known as ANA, said it plans to order three Boeing 767 jets from the U.S. aircraft maker.

The airline said its group net profit declined to 2.16 billion yen ($19.3 million) for its fiscal first quarter from 2.43 billion yen a year earlier.

But its group operating profit jumped 33 percent to 11.76 billion yen from 8.87 billion yen. Its group revenue rose 5.1 percent to 312.35 billion yen from 297.20 billion yen.

The company kept intact its prior profit outlook for the fiscal year ending March 2006. ANA expects a 63 percent drop in its group net profit to 10 billion yen.

JAL Posts Q1 Loss On Weak Demand
July 29, 2005

Japan Airlines said on Friday its quarterly operating loss widened due to weak domestic demand and high fuel prices, but it kept its forecast for a 7 percent rise in full-year profit.

JAL's weak earnings structure was highlighted by All Nippon Airways, the country's second-ranked carrier, which managed to post a 33 percent rise in group operating profit as it offset high fuel prices by cutting other expenses.

Apart from the high fuel prices, which have hit airlines worldwide, JAL's bottom line was hurt by safety problems, including engine troubles and a takeoff without permission, that prompted worried domestic passengers to fly with ANA instead.

The airline was also hit by anti-Japan demonstrations that discouraged Japanese from visiting China.

JAL posted a group operating loss of JPY32.04 billion (USD$285.1 million) for the three months to June 30, against a loss of JPY30.26 billion (USD$269.3 million) a year earlier.

"We expected the number of domestic individual passengers to surpass last year's but the result did not match expectations," JAL Vice President Toshiyuki Kawarabata told a news conference.

JAL nevertheless stuck to its full-year operating profit forecast of JPY60 billion (USD$533.9 million), citing efforts to improve profitability.

Near-record jet fuel prices have weighted on JAL with fuel costs totalling JPY87.3 billion (USD$776.9 million) in the first quarter, up JPY21.9 billion (USD$194.9 million) from a year earlier.

Singapore kerosene has been hovering around USD$70 a barrel, much higher than the USD$54 the airline projected in May.

JAL said it has already hedged about 70 percent of fuel requirements for this business year, and expects to be able to limit annual fuel cost at JPY45 billion (USD$400.4 million) more than it had initially estimated if the price stays at the current level.

"We need a structure that can generate profits even when fuel prices are high," Kawarabata said. "We will keep working on our measures to improve earnings."

He did not rule out the possibility of raising ticket prices or surcharges if fuel prices continued to rise.

JAL said it would stop flying some international routes, mainly those used by tourists -- such as Tokyo-Saipan and Fukuoka-Honolulu -- and would increase flights to and from central Japan using a new airport near Nagoya.

ANA, on the other hand, is already showing results from its cost cutting efforts. Group operating profit rose 32.6 percent to JPY11.76 billion yen (USD$104.7 million) for the three months.

Japanese discount airline Star Flyer to begin flying next March

Updated: 05-Aug-05

KITAKYUSHU (XFNews) - A new discount airline, Star Flyer Inc, said it will start operating in March 2006, flying 24 times daily between Tokyo and this southern Japanese city.

"Based on a government survey, there is a basic demand for 2 mln passengers per year for flights between Kitakyushu and Tokyo, so we are very confident," said the company's senior executive director, Yasushi Muto, in an interview with XFN-Asia.

The fare will be 20-30 pct less than that charged on the route by Japan Airlines or All Nippon Airlines, which dominate the domestic air travel market.

Star Flyer will be based in Kitakyushu, 1,000 kilometers southwest of Tokyo and the second-largest city on Kyushu island. To begin with, the carrier plans to fly from its home base at a new international airport to open here next March, using three 144-seat Airbus aircraft.

The airline aims to attract business travellers as well as tourists.

Muto said Star Flyer expects to generate an operating profit of about 400 mln yen for the first year to March 2007.

The airline expects to fill 60 pct of available seats in its first year and carry 750,000 passengers, with ticket sales forecast to double within four years.

From 2006 to 2010, the airline plans to add one or two aircraft per year, and one domestic route.

By 2008 the airline also hopes to begin flying abroad, by adding one foreign destination, possibly either Shanghai, Beijing or Seoul.

But Muto said it would be difficult to expand domestic routes rapidly because of high costs.

"In Japan, the airline industry has been monopolized by existing airlines and (operating) costs will continue to remain high.

This is the reason that we cannot stimulate demand and that we find it challenging to expand by linking purely domestic destinations," Muto said.

Muto emphasized: "We aim to operate only on the profitable routes, and thus are not going to discount too much."

Since its founding in 2002, Star Flyer has raised about 1.8 bln yen in seed capital from companies in the Kitakyushu area. Muto said it will have spent 2.2-2.3 bln yen by the time it starts flying.

旅客機の部品落下 原因調査へ



このトラブルは、12日夜7時50分ごろハワイのホノルルに向けて福岡空港を離陸したばかりのJALウェイズ58便、DCー10型機のエンジンに異常が起きたもので、旅客機は左の主翼のエンジンから大きな炎と火花を出したあと福岡空港に引き返しました。このトラブルで、乗客らあわせて229人にけがはありませんでしたが、空港から1キロほど離れた福岡市東区の住宅地で部品の一部の金属片が多数落下し、サッカーをしていた中学生の肩をかするなどして2人が軽いけがをしました。中学生と一緒にいた母親は「上空の飛行機を見上げると、ドンという爆発音とともにオレンジ色の光が見え、金属片が落ちてきた。墜落すると思ってみんなで逃げた」と話していました。警察が12日夜、付近での捜索を行った結果、半径100メートルほどの範囲に3センチ四方ほどの金属片が数十個見つかったということです。警察は、13日朝から警察官60人を現場に出して金属片が落下した範囲を特定するとともに、機体を調べてトラブルの原因究明を進めることにしています。

JAL and Mexicana Airlines code-share Agreement expands Japan-Mexico Network
29 August 2005


Japan Airlines and Mexicana Airlines have reached a code-share agreement based on connections in Los Angeles which will expand JAL’s network in Mexico to four cities and provide Mexicana with access to Tokyo and Osaka in Japan.

Under the terms of the agreement JAL will be able to code share on daily Mexicana flights between Los Angeles and four destinations in Mexico, Mexico City, Guadalajara - Mexico’s second biggest metropolis - and the popular tourist destinations of Los Cabos and Cancun. In return, Mexicana will be able to code share on daily flights operated by JAL between Los Angeles and Tokyo and Osaka.

Subject to government approval, the agreement will come into effect on 30 October 2005, with ticket sales scheduled to start 20 September 2005. (The code shares are not for sale to passengers whose journey originates in or whose final destination is Los Angeles).

Currently JAL operates a twice-weekly B747-400 service between Tokyo and Mexico City routed via Vancouver.

With the inauguration of the new code share flights, JAL passengers will now have the option of daily services between Japan and Mexico.

ANA fires pilot for stealing flight manuals
Tuesday, September 13, 2005 at 16:05 JST


TOKYO — All Nippon Airways has fired a pilot for allegedly stealing flight manuals that were eventually sold on an Internet auction site, the company said Tuesday.

The airline dismissed Kosuke Yasue, 42, on disciplinary grounds Monday, following his arrest on Aug 30 on suspicion of stealing six manuals, including one for Boeing B747-400s, in late January from the bookshelf in a study room used by ANA crew members at Tokyo's Haneda airport. Yasue admitted the theft and said he stole the manuals and sold them to a dealer in airline-related goods, who resold them on the Internet, the police said earlier.

Japan to start airline accidents database
Thursday 22nd September, 2005 (UPI)

Japan's transport ministry hopes a database of aviation accidents and serious incidents will restore confidence in the domestic air transport industry.

Officials from the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport said the database, which will be available on the Internet by spring 2007, will collect and analyze information about aviation accidents and problems in Japan and abroad.

The nation's two largest carriers, Japan Airlines and All Nippon Airways, have been plagued with mishaps since early this year. The ministry's air traffic controllers also have made a number of blunders.

The ministry plans to use the information to revise its safety standards when necessary and supervise airlines more efficiently. Airlines can use the information to improve their operations, while passengers will be able to keep tabs on the airlines' safety measures, the Asahi Shimbun reported Thursday.

Under aviation law, Japanese airlines are required to report aviation accidents or serious incidents to the transport ministry's Civil Aviation Bureau.

The bureau annually receives 20 to 30 reports about accidents and about 10 reports of serious incidents. In addition, about 1,500 cases involving malfunctioning equipment are reported each year.

ANA flight makes emergency landing
Wednesday 28th September, 2005 (UPI)

An All Nippon Airways jet made an emergency landing Wednesday morning at Tokyo's Haneda Airport after its left engine had lost its oil.

The pilots of ANA Flight 243, bound for Fukuoka from Tokyo, noticed a warning system was showing that the oil level in the plane's left engine had dropped to zero. The pilots shut down the left engine and returned to Haneda Airport about 30 minutes later with only the right engine running, the Mainichi Shimbun reported Wednesday.

None of the 369 people aboard the plane were injured. Mechanics who examined the aircraft, a Boeing 777-300, found that oil had leaked from its left engine. ANA is investigating the cause of the trouble.

Japan Airlines to launch Innovative Maintenance Solution from Boeing
5 October 2005


Japan Airlines (JAL) has become the first licensed customer of Boeing's Maintenance Performance Toolbox, an innovative set of performance-enhancing solutions for aircraft maintenance and troubleshooting.

Accessible via an Internet browser as a secured, hosted service, the "Maintenance Toolbox" is a key component within Boeing's evolving portfolio of performance-enhancing solutions for aircraft maintenance. Under the new agreement, JAL has access to the Structures Tool within Maintenance Toolbox.

Maintenance Toolbox uses intelligent documents and visual navigation methods to help technical operations staff troubleshoot airplane systems and manage structural repair records, parts, and task cards. The Structures Tool provides 3D models for recording, viewing, and analyzing structural repairs, making use of accumulated repair knowledge, and maintaining records of repair activities for multiple fleet types. It also includes a repair history database of records that includes details of repairs and repair locations on one or more aircraft. Users can search the database for information about repairs performed in specific areas of the airplane, search for similar repairs on other airplanes in their fleet, and enter/edit/delete repair records.

Mr. Hideo Hiramoto, vice president of the engineering department at JAL, said, "We are very pleased to be the launch customer for the Structures Tool of the Maintenance Performance Toolbox because we are the development partner for this innovative product. We are excited with the completion of the project, as we know it will help us to accomplish more reliable maintenance operations."

Boeing provides secure hosting for all of JAL's data and reliable access to the user interface of the Structures Tool through MyBoeingFleet.com. Engineers need only a computer – a laptop, desktop or pen tablet – and an Internet connection to access the system.

JAL Group’s Business Operating Companies and Sales Company to Integrate
5 October 2005


The JAL Group has decided on the timetable to integrate its business operating companies, Japan Airlines International and Japan Airlines Domestic, and passenger sales company, JAL Sales. This corporate structure, now to be changed, was formed as the result of the integration of Japan Airlines and Japan Air System, which was finalized in April 2004.

Earlier this year in February, JAL announced its intention to integrate the operating companies and in March the JAL Group issued its 2005-2007 Medium-Term Business Plan, which confirmed plans to integrate its holding company and business operating companies by FY2006 at the earliest. The purpose of the integration is to speed up decision making and to streamline management, emphazising better communications between head offices and service branches.

The JAL Group has decided to retain the operating company of Japan Airlines International, which handles international passenger operations and cargo operations, as it is, forming the nucleus of the integration.

JAL Sales, the group travel product sales company will transfer its air ticket sales activities to Japan Airlines International on April 1, 2006, and Japan Airlines Domestic, the operating subsidiary currently in charge of domestic passenger operations, will be integrated with Japan Airlines International on October 1, 2006.

Japan Airlines Corporation, the group holding company, will be retained. This is to maintain flexibility and mobility in the group’s capital policies, and to facilitate the transfer of aviation rights of international passenger operations.

However, the organization of the holding company will be slimmed down as much as possible in order to speed up decision-making and the transmission of information.

As a result of this unification, Japan Airlines International and Japan Airlines Domestic will integrate their personnel and wage systems, achieving greater work efficiency due to the removal of intra-group trading, procedures and adjustments among the integrated companies.

The integration itself will not generate any extra income or affect costs, other than the objectives of the reforms set out in JAL's current medium term corporate plan announced on March 10, 2005. Already accounted for in the corporate plan, the integration process of JAL Domestic with JAL International will result in the elimination of 100 job duplications resulting in cost savings of one billion yen. Costs of about 500 million yen will be incurred due to IT systems' integration, taxes and legal registration fees.

JAL Decision to Seek Oneworld Membership


Tokyo - October 25, 2005: Japan Airlines (JAL), Asia's largest airline group, has decided to apply to join the multilateral airline alliance, oneworld. Launched in February 1999, oneworld offers a global network provided by eight major airlines in the world, namely American Airlines, British Airways, Qantas, Iberia, LAN, Finnair, Cathay Pacific, and Aer Lingus, plus their 12 affiliates.

The decision to join the multilateral alliance is in line with JAL's corporate policy to always think and act from the customers' point of view. Up to now, JAL has followed a bilateral alliance policy but has always kept an eye on the activities of multilateral alliances and has decided that now is the time for it to participate in such a grouping. Ever since oneworld was founded, its member airlines have worked together to provide passengers with top class travel offering the highest levels of convenience, comfort and value through expanded and improved products and services that can be enjoyed anywhere in the world.

As JAL and oneworld share the same purpose and objective, obtaining oneworld membership, while maintaining present bilateral agreements, would be in the best interests of JAL's plans to further develop the JAL Group, and represents the airline's strong commitment to providing the very best to its customers. The oneworld alliance greatly assists international passengers with their travels through the integration of e-ticketing, easier access to a more extensive network and linked services such as frequent flyer mileage programs, mutual use of airport lounges, and smooth flight connections.

Presently, oneworld has a network linking around 600 cities in 135 countries, and by joining the alliance JAL's network would further expand. The oneworld alliance is the first multilateral alliance in the world with interline e-ticketing in place between all of its members, making it far more convenient for passengers to transfer between flights of different member airlines. By joining an alliance that pursues such leading-edge services as this, JAL feels that its customers' convenience would be further improved.

With a worldwide network which serves 206 airports in 34 countries and territories, and strong market presence particularly in Japan and Asia, JAL believes it would be able to significantly enhance the competitiveness of oneworld when it finally becomes a member of the alliance.




FYI
ANA (Asia's 2nd largest airline group) is a member of Star Alliance

JAL set to launch Double Mileage Campaign
4 November 2005


JAL has launched one of its biggest ever frequent flyer mileage campaigns – the ‘All JAL’ Double Mileage Campaign. Between December 1st 2005 and March 31st 2006, the almost 18 million members worldwide of JAL’s frequent flyer program, the JAL Mileage Bank (JMB), will be able to earn double the flight mileage normally offered when they travel on JAL Group airlines’ extensive global network.

During the campaign period, double flight mileage can be accumulated in all classes on all of JAL Group’s international and Japan domestic flights, as well as code share flights operated by partner airlines booked under the JAL (JL) flight number.

JMB members are simply required to register for the campaign in advance of travel through either the JAL Website or JMB Center applicable to their JMB region. The campaign only applies to travel conducted within the campaign period and JAL fares eligible for JMB mileage accumulation. The offer cannot be combined with other flight mile bonus offers.

JAL launches New Corporate Reforms
7 November 2005


The JAL Group is launching a new initiative of corporate reforms including additional investment in safety systems, customer-focused service to increase competitiveness, restructuring of international passenger operations, and cost restructuring.

The new plans, announced today, are aimed at creating an airline group with enhanced customer appeal and a stronger corporate base in time for 2009, a crucial year for Japan’s aviation industry. That year will see the expansion of Tokyo’s predominantly domestic Haneda Airport with more international services and the extension of Narita Airport’s second runway enabling more arrivals and departures there, all adding up to a major business chance for JAL’s future growth.

Securing safety and reliability

JAL will invest about 60 billion yen in safety related systems and measures between FY2006 and FY2010. This investment includes the strengthening of Information Technology systems and improved maintenance facilities in support of flight safety, such as additional maintenance docks at Narita for B777 aircraft.

Other related plans include an increase in the number of maintenance technicians and a review of maintenance training programmes.

Commitment for quality

Fleet modernization plans include the introduction of 23 new aircraft between 2006 and March 2009. These include 4 Boeing 787s and 19 Boeing 737-800s. Other passenger service improvement plans include upgraded in-flight entertainment systems and in-flight meals.

JAL will accelerate the retirement of older 747 models, (the 200 and 300 series) completing the process during FY2009. Currently JAL has 30 aircraft of this type in service.

Between 2006 and 2010 JAL will invest 65 billion yen in service related equipment improvements.

JAL will adopt the concept of Universal Design/Universal Service in developing and providing products and services. This will be introduced to airport facilities and aircraft cabin specifications.

Joining the oneworld global alliance will enable JAL to expand the network, e-ticket cooperation, mutual use of airport lounges, link-up of mileage programmes and smooth through check-in services for customers.

Restructuring of international passengers operations to aim for sustainable growth

From FY2006, JAL plans further restructuring of international routes and reduction in aircraft size and capacity.

In FY2007-2008, JAL will expand routes served by middle and small size aircraft, mainly on Japan-China routes. By continuing fleet downsizing JAL will increase the percentage of middle and small size aircraft from the present 40% to about 60% by the end of FY2008 (March 2009). From FY2009, JAL will expand its fleet in order to capitalize on the start of international services from Haneda and the increase of slots at Narita, and proactively expand into growth markets.

According to wikipedia, the only non-chartered international flights are to Seoul-Gimpo by ANA-JAL-Korean-Asiana -- this domestic-to-domestic airport service started in 2003. There's some chartered flights to other international destinations.

Other facts:
- busiest airport in asia in terms of passengers
- second busiest airport in asia in terms of flight traffic after Beijing International Airport

Yep, I saw advertising boards about this Haneda - Gimpo route. I thought I had read somewhere about links to Taiwan from Haneda, but I guess I was wrong
