Japan Airlines posts profit of $1.92b
Quote:
TOKYO : Japan Airlines, which went bankrupt two years ago in one of the country's biggest-ever corporate failures, reported a nine-month profit of almost $2.0 billion Thursday, in part thanks to the strong yen.

The carrier was bailed out by the government after filing for bankruptcy with debts of about 2.32 trillion yen, and emerged from a court-supervised restructuring in March last year.

JAL said net profit reached 146 billion yen ($1.92 billion) in the nine months to December after aggressive cost-cutting. It posted an operating profit of 162 billion yen on sales totalling 909 billion yen in the period.

The company upgraded its forecast for the full year to March to a net profit of $2.1 billion, partly due to a stronger yen that encourages more Japanese to travel overseas.

For the year to March 2012, JAL now expects a net profit of 160 billion yen and operating profit of 180 billion yen on sales of 1.19 trillion yen.

In November, JAL had expected a lower net profit of 120 billion yen and an operating profit of 140 billion yen on sales of 1.15 trillion yen.

During its restructuring the company cut unprofitable routes, reviewed its fleet, and reduced fuel expenses. It also started using a new revenue management system to improve productivity.

Japan Airlines Announces Five-Year Business Plan
Quote:
TOKYO (Dow Jones)--Japan Airlines Co. on Wednesday announced a five-year plan for business growth, as the carrier emerges from several years of restructuring after filing for Japan's biggest nonfinancial bankruptcy protection in 2010.

The airline said it plans to invest Y478 billion on new planes and parts over the five-year period from April, as it aims to further modernize its fleet.

The new spending plan includes costs to replace older models with fuel-efficient jets, including Boeing Co. 787 midsize planes and Boeing 737s.

The airline aims to save Y50 billion in flight operating costs over five years partly by using more fuel-efficient jets.

ANA to increase international services
Quote:
All Nippon Airways (ANA) on Friday said it would aim to boost its international capacity by 22% within two years and begin fresh routes as part of a new business strategy.

The carrier, the first to fly Boeing’s new 787 Dreamliner late last year, said the plan for fiscal 2012-2013 was “designed to strengthen ANA against a backdrop of global economic uncertainty, the ongoing sovereign debt crisis in the eurozone, high oil prices and fluctuating foreign exchange rates.”

It also comes as it faces tough competition from a growing budget sector and days after an announcement by rival Japan Airlines (JAL) that it would buy more Dreamliners to build on its recovery from bankruptcy.

On Wednesday JAL said it would buy 10 new Dreamliners—to add to an existing order for 35 of the planes—as part of a five-year capital expenditure plan worth more than $6 billion.

ANA said it will introduce new services linking Tokyo’s Narita airport with Seattle and San Jose in the year from April 2012, using the fuel-efficient Dreamliner.

The airline said in a statement that it will adopt multi-brand strategy—which will include its new budget carrier, Peach Aviation—and aim to reduce group costs by 100 billion yen during the period.

Tokyo Haneda Airport plans major extension of international terminal
Quote:
JAPAN. Tokyo International Air Terminal Corporation (TIAT) will begin construction this October on a 75,000sq m extension to Haneda Airport’s international terminal.

The extension will significantly enhance capacity and service levels at Haneda, where the Japanese government has committed to increasing international flight slots from the present 30,000 daily slots per year to 60,000 by 2014.

Speaking to The Moodie Report at Haneda, TIAT Vice President Sales & Marketing Hideki Hayashi said that the extension would include further commercial space and a new hotel, along with eight new aircraft stands and an additional security checkpoint.

“Today we have approximately 7 million international passengers, but this will [cater for] 12.5 million passengers,” he said.

TIAT is yet to confirm the layout of the commercial areas in the extension, which will be built on the western end of the current structure.

For duty free, though, Hayashi confirmed the intention to broaden the current relationship under which store operation is managed by Japan Airport Terminal Co (JATCo) – the major shareholder in TIAT.

There is a 5 page article on Japan's future Air Traffic System (Carats)

Japan Battles Gridlock in the Sky
Quote:
Japan’s airspace, already among the most congested in the world, is facing new pressure as more flights are funneled into Tokyo airports. Airlines and aviation authorities are hoping that a far-reaching air traffic modernization effort can ease the bottleneck and allow additional service to the nation’s capital without causing gridlock.

Traffic saturation at Tokyo’s Narita International and Haneda airports has meant strict limits on new flights, which has been a bone of contention for overseas airlines in particular. But expansion at both facilities is enabling more slots for international service, as well as the rapid emergence of domestic low-cost airlines. Within five years, traffic at the two airports is expected to rise by 20%.

Solving the Tokyo problem has been one of the main drivers behind the Collaborative Actions for Renovation of Air Traffic Systems (Carats) program. Carats is similar in concept to the U.S. NextGen program and Sesar (Single European Sky ATM Research), featuring a long-term vision for introducing a range of new technologies and procedures. The plan extends to 2025, the same target date as NextGen. Airlines, other airspace users, research institutes and government agencies have all been involved in defining the plan.

Carats has other similarities to the U.S. and EU efforts. It is aimed at doubling capacity in congested airspace, reducing fuel consumption and emissions by 10% per flight, and halving accident numbers. The Japanese project is not just focused on Tokyo; it is also intended to increase safety and efficiency at other domestic airports, and provide greater flexibility for Japan’s busy oceanic and overflight routes.

Some significant modernization projects that will be important to Carats have already been completed, such as a redesign of the Tokyo airspace and the streamlining of high-altitude domestic flows using satellite-based area navigation (RNAV). But many more improvements are needed in technology and procedures.

Narita set to open bizjet terminal
Quote:
NARITA, Chiba Pref. — Narita Airport Authority said Friday it will open on March 31 a terminal for users of business jets.

The terminal for business executives and others flying into Narita aboard business jets is the first in the Tokyo metropolitan area, although Central Japan International Airport near Nagoya and Kobe Airport have such facilities, it said.

The facility, located in a building housing Japan Airlines Co.'s operations center near Terminal 2, will have its own lounge as well as immigration and customs.

Applications for the facility's use will be accepted online from April 2.

JAL serving Yoshinoya beef bowls on intl flights
Quote:
Japan Airlines has started offering gyudon beef bowls for in-flight meals, a dish jointly developed with Yoshinoya Holdings Co., a major beef bowl restaurant chain.

The dish was first offered Thursday on five international routes from Narita Airport to cities in Europe and the United States, including New York, Chicago and London. It will be available for all passengers through the end of May.

This is the first time Yoshinoya has produced in-flight meals.

The beef bowls will be served with more broth than usual as the air in airplane cabins is very dry. Shichimi Japanese chili peppers and pickled ginger are also available with the dish. The beef and rice are heated separately and offered in a paper container.

Beef bowls will be served to economy class passengers as the second meal before landing. First and business class passengers can order the beef bowl any time after the first meal.

ANA May Expand Lufthansa Tie-Up to Boost Traffic
Quote:
All Nippon Airways Co. (9202) may expand a venture with Deutsche Lufthansa AG (LHA) after greater cooperation with partners helped the Japanese carrier double transfer passengers at its main international hub.

All Nippon may start tie-ups with Lufthansa units Swiss International Air Lines AG, Austrian Airlines AG and Brussels Airlines NV, ANA President Shinichiro Ito said in a March 2 interview. The Tokyo-based airline began the Lufthansa venture in October following the start of a similar accord with United Continental Holdings Inc. (UAL) in April 2011.

“We’ve had a big boost in passengers flying to Narita airport and changing planes” because of the two pacts, Ito said in Tokyo. Widening the Lufthansa agreement “is definitely a possibility,” he said.

The carrier, the only operator of Boeing Co. (BA) 787s, may also start flights to Moscow using the aircraft, as it expands international operations, improves its frequent flier program and updates lounges to win more long-haul and business travelers, Ito said. The carrier is focusing on these markets as new budget airlines threaten to lure passengers on domestic and short-haul international routes.

“About half of Japanese flying abroad use non-Japanese airlines, so there is a lot of room for ANA to expand its international business,” Seigo Ando, a Tokyo-based senior analyst at Deutsche Bank AG, said by telephone. “Moscow is a good destination, as there are many potential passengers related to automakers and other kinds of companies going there from Japan for business.”

ANA to Increase Flights Between Osaka and Hangzhou/Qingdao
Quote:
Japan’s ANA is to increase the frequency of flights on its routes from Kansai (Osaka) to Hangzhou and Qingdao in China to meet growing market demand.

Currently, ANA flies three times a week between Kansai and Hangzhou and four times a week between Kansai and Qingdao in Boeing 737 aircraft.

From 25 March 2012, ANA will begin serving these two routes daily.

ANA is also continuing to operate a daily service on the Narita (Tokyo)-Hangzhou route.

This expansion in flights means that all ANA routes between Japan and China will be operated on a daily basis from 25 March 2012.

So what's the general consensus in Japan about the future of Kansai International?

It seems that with Kobe opening up (which is where KIX SHOULD have gone) and with Haneda taking on a stronger role to rival Incheon, there's not as much room for Osaka.

I know in the past there have been the idea of combining the airports, but I would really love to see Osaka get more direct flights.

The ex-governor of Osaka pref. (and now mayor of Osaka) Toru Hashimoto, wants to eventually close Osaka Itami (by far more popular among business travelers than Kansai Intl), and shift all operations to Kansai Intl. Airport. At least at the moment, Kansai is attracting LCCs like Peach.

I guess the most pressing concern for business travellers is time. Has there been talk as to what could alleviate the concern for business travellers?

The Rap:d still takes about 40minutes to Namba and I'm assuming most are going to the Umeda area.

The JR Haruka takes about an hour.

Both are about 1000 yen.

How long is it from Itami? 30 minutes? 40 tops? And it's under 300 yen.
Is there room to speed up either of these services like The Sky Access Line to Narita?
Will business travellers switch to Kobe?

EDIT: Of note, the fastest Narrow gauge train in Japan is the Shirasagi, which travels at 160km/h... as opposed to the rap:t which maxes out at 120km/h.

There are plans for a new rail tunnel underneath the city from Namba to Umeda, that should eventually cut back the time from KIX to Umeda to 40-45 minutes.

You can find something more about it here:
http://gorimon.com/blog/log/eid1611.html

Further time reductions could be made if the JR Hanwa Line or the Nankai Main Line are upgraded. Since they are still regular suburban lines with many level crossings, there's room for a speed up to make the lines completely grade separated.

And there's always the posibility to extend the future Chuo Maglev from Osaka to Kansai airport, then it will be very close to the city.

JAL's debut Dreamliner arrives in Narita



Quote:
Japan Airlines Co.'s first Boeing Co. 787 landed Tuesday evening at Narita International Airport, ending more than three years of delays for the second Dreamliner operator.

"Taking delivery of the 787 was like meeting the love of a lifetime," JAL President Yoshiharu Ueki, a former pilot, told reporters after the plane landed. The carrier officially received two 787s from Boeing earlier this week.

JAL will begin flights to Boston with the 787 on April 22 as its takes advantage of the plane's fuel efficiency to serve destinations that would be unprofitable with larger aircraft. The carrier, which has ordered 45 Dreamliners, also plans to start serving San Diego and Helsinki, as well as using the planes on flights to Beijing, Singapore, New Delhi and Moscow.

All Nippon Airways Co., JAL's biggest competitor, last year became the first carrier to fly the 787 commercially.

Narita added to Sri Lanka open skies
Quote:
Japan and Sri Lanka have agreed to add Narita International Airport to their open skies agreement, according to the transport ministry.

The addition of Narita will take effect in summer 2013, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism said Monday.

Signatory countries to open skies agreement are basically obliged to authorize each other's airlines to set the number of flights to the other's airports and open new routes to them without being bound by any curbs.

The deal has made Sri Lanka the 15th economy with which Japan has agreed to add Narita to such an accord.

Metropolitan Police Dept. to launch Haneda airport security squad
Quote:
TOKYO (Kyodo) -- The Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department said Friday it will establish on April 3 a squad devoted to protecting Haneda airport's International Terminal from possible terror assaults in light of the growing number of international flight arrivals and departures, as well as several terror attacks in the past year on airports overseas.

The 53-person squad will be placed under the wing of the 6th Mobile Unit headquartered near the airport.

The squad devoted to policing an airport will be the second in Japan after the formation of a Chiba Prefectural Police squad in charge of providing security to Narita airport in the prefecture.

Although the department's 10 mobile units comprised of antiriot personnel have so far taken turns in policing Haneda airport, it had judged it is necessary to create a squad devoted to keeping guards at the airport's International Terminal.

The new team will be tasked with policing the airport around the clock in four daily shifts.

It will bring together antiriot police officers from the 10 units who are versed in dealing with possible terror attacks involving nuclear, biological and chemical arms, as well as firearms, it said.

Toshiaki Shirai, chief of the department's first security division, said, "We will enhance our connection with airport officials, while examining the countermeasures foreign governments have taken to foil terrorist activities."

They better repair it entirely and completely following all specifications...we don't want another repeat of JAL 123, it was the same sort of thing, the back of the plane was damaged a few years earlier and boeing did improper repairs.

Narita Airport To Build Budget Terminal
Quote:
TOKYO (Nikkei)--Narita International Airport Corp. said Thursday it will spend 20 billion yen to construct a new terminal for discount carriers by March 2015.

To be located adjacent to Passenger Terminal 2, the dedicated terminal is expected to see around 7.5 million passengers from 50,000 arrivals and departures a year.

The terminal will cater to both domestic and international flights. It will house customs, immigration and quarantine facilities to ensure travelers can quickly complete such procedures.
