Skyteam bundles its forces in Asia

By Luc Citrinot, eTN senior managing editor, Asia | Nov 27, 2009

Despite the presence of Korean Air and China Southern, alliance Skyteam continues to lack visibility in Asia, a comment which does not seem to please Pierre Gourgeon, president and CEO of Air France-KLM, the driving force behind the alliance.

“This is not true! We have a very strong presence in Korea, Japan, and China, especially with our partners Korean Air and China Southern Airlines,” he said during a recent press conference in Paris. However, he is prompt to recognize that Skyteam remains weak in markets such as south Asia (India) and southeast Asia.

Year 2010 should bring welcome changes. Gourgeon confirms that Vietnam Airlines will enter the alliance by next year helping Skyteam to cover extensively southeast Asia from both Vietnam hubs in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi. Vietnam Airlines is now engaged into a modernization process prior to becoming an official member in June 2010. Since 2007, the airline has ordered 36 Airbus A-321, two Airbus A-350 900XWB, 16 Boeing B787 Dreamliners, and 11 ATR 72. Mid-November, the airline announced its intention to acquire four Airbus A380 with the contract being possibly finalized during the first quarter of 2010. Vietnam Airlines has currently a fleet of 52 planes flying 19 domestic and 25 international routes with a total passengers’ number of over nine million. It expects to triple its fleet and passengers number by 2020.

The airlines' network has been reorganized to shorten transit time and improve transfers at HCM City airport, and it has recently increased the number of its weekly flights to Paris CDG, Air France-KLM's main hub in Europe. Vietnam Airlines now flies eight times per week, up by two frequencies. Europe represents a turnover of €165 million in 2008 with three flights to Russia, Germany, and France. “We are currently working all together to bring Vietnam Airlines IT system to Skyteam’s standards”, said Gourgeon.

A new partner to be officially confirmed soon is Indonesia’s national carrier Garuda. “We are very pleased to support the candidacy of Garuda, a long-standing partner of us in Asia,” explained Peter Hartman, president and CEO of KLM. “In our last meeting, we decided to support Garuda’s process into Skyteam in conjunction with Korean Air and Delta Air Lines. I believe, however, that the process would take a year until Garuda’s official entry,” he explained. Year 2011 is also seen as the possible entry date by Garuda management as recently confirmed in exclusivity to eTurboNews by Emirsyah Satar, president and CEO of Garuda. “The soonest, the better. We now work on upgrading our reservation’s system and look to expand our fleet from 66 to 116 aircraft by 2014”, said Satar.

Air France is also looking closely at Japan Airlines. Hearing about the airline’s financial difficulties, Air France-KLM has joined Delta Air Lines and Skyteam to bid for a US$1.02 billion financial pakage to save the airline. The proposal by Delta and SkyTeam includes, among others, a US$500 million equity injection from SkyTeam and a US$300 million revenue guarantee from Delta. The Japanese carrier has just received the government’s approval for a loan of about yen 100 billion from the Development Bank of Japan bridge loans to keep itself operational after being granted authorization by the government. Gourgeon remains cautious about the outcome. “I can’t say more about it. It all depends [on] discussions’ results between the Japanese government and JAL management. We still do not know if the Japanese government will allow the entry of a foreign carrier into JAL ownership,” he said.

In India, Air France seems to have temporarily abandoned the idea to link up with an Indian carrier. “The air travel market is currently very difficult with few good opportunities to find a partner,” said Gourgeon cautiously.

LION AIR EVALUATES A330/777 DEAL

Indonesia's largest privately-owned carrier Lion Air plans to place an order for widebodies and wants first deliveries in 2011.

Lion plans to order 10-15 widebodies and is interested in Airbus A330-300s and Boeing 777-200ERs, says Lion Air president Rusdi Kirana.

The carrier wants first deliveries in 2011 and plans to use the aircraft in the day on busy domestic trunk routes and fly the aircraft at night to destinations in Asia, he says.

They aim to make a decision by the first quarter of next year, he adds.

Indonesian carriers are unable to operate domestically at night because of airport curfews. Rusdi says, for example, that Lion Air could operate a widebody at night from Bali Denpasar to Taipei and have passengers arrive in Bali in the morning.

He says Lion plans to have the widebodies in an all-economy configuration and compete on price.

Rusdi also says Indonesia has plenty of traffic rights available because at the moment "its only Garuda flying internationally" on longer routes.

Lion can succeed on longer international routes because it has the feeder traffic, he adds.

Earlier this month Lion launched services on the Jakarta-Jeddah route using two second-hand Boeing 747-400s that it bought.

Rusdi says its passenger load factor on the route is 90-100%.

Lion's main fleet comprises of 26 Boeing 737-900ERs and it is adding one a month and plans to have a total of 30 by year-end, says Rusdi.

In addition, it has five Boeing MD-80s but these are used as stand-by aircraft and will be phased out mid next year, he says.

Lion has also signed a firm order for 15 ATR 72-500s with the first three aircraft due to arrive in December although an exact date has yet to be set, he adds.

Lion Air Looks to East Asia in Latest Challenge to Garuda

December 07, 2009
Janeman Latul- The Jakarta Globe

PT Lion Air, Indonesia’s biggest domestic airline in terms of passenger volume, revealed on Monday that it is planning to expand its international routes next year.

Lion Air is considering flights to China, South Korea and Japan by mid-2010.

Analysts said the move would challenge main rival PT Garuda Indonesia’s dominance in the lucrative East Asia market.

“We’re currently studying a plan to expand into East Asia carefully,” said Edward Sirait, Lion Air’s general director on Monday. “It should be finalized by June or July next year. We would establish several new flights to the region after we get the traffic rights.”

Edward said East Asia offered several promising routes, especially to China, which would be the company’s main target. He said Lion Air was considering flights to Beijing, Shanghai, Seoul and Tokyo.

“China’s potential is massive because it has one of the fastest rates of economic growth in the world, as well as a huge population,” Edward said.

Based on the company’s earlier assessment, it would target the foreign tourist market with its China routes.

Routes to Japan and South Korea would be targeted more at business travelers because citizens of both countries have extensive business operations in Indonesia, he said.

“We also expect to capture the market for Indonesian migrant workers and fly them to China and Hong Kong,” Edward said.

Lion Air surpassed Garuda as the largest carrier of domestic passengers last year.

It began flights to Saudi Arabia in November, going head to head with Garuda in competition to fly hajj pilgrims, and ending the state carrier’s monopoly on the route.

Edward declined to disclose Lion Air’s estimated investment in its East Asia expansion plan, saying it has yet to be finalized.

“We will surely add new planes for the routes ... like Boeing 747-400s,” Edward said. “We will also likely find partners [in the region] to work with us.”

He added that negotiations with prospective partners had already begun.

Tengku Burhanuddin, secretary general of the Indonesia National Air Carriers Association, said Lion Air’s move was planned in preparation for the Asian Open Skies Agreement, set to take effect in 2015.

The agreement will see members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations allow more competition in the airline industry. This means more airlines will be allowed to fly to more countries.

Lion Air’s move into East Asia would intensify competition between the two biggest Indonesian airlines, and would be good for consumers, Tengku said.

He predicted that to compete with Lion Air, Garuda would shift its focus to high-end passengers, while Lion Air would focus more on the budget market.

Garuda executives did not respond to repeated requests for comment on Monday.

Garuda Indonesia extends selling hours to meet Brisbane demand

Last week’s release of special launch fares to celebrate Garuda Indonesia’s return to the Brisbane Bali route, has generated a rush of enquiries to the airline’s Sydney based reservations department.

To meet this demand, Garuda Indonesia will extend the hours of its Reservations and Ticket Office/Agency until 6.00pm, Monday to Friday, to allow for the one hour time difference created by Daylight Saving Time.

“In this time of economic uncertainty consumers are realizing the very real value that Bali offers and it seems that our competitive return fares have Queenslanders rethinking their holiday plans over Christmas”, says Mr. Poerwoko Soeparyono, Senior General Manager Australia/SWP.

“We will monitor the need for further extensions to office hours as the volume of sales enquiries from Queensland and Northern NSW increases.”

From 14 December, Garuda Indonesia will fly direct from Brisbane to Bali every Tuesday, Friday and Sunday with all-inclusive fares beginning at $940 return.

Toll free reservations enquiries can be directed to 1300 365 330 and ticket office/agency enquiries to 1300 365 331, selecting Option 1, then 2.

KLM and Garuda launch code share agreement

Garuda Indonesia and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines are planning to launch codeshare flights between Singapore and Denpasar, Bali. The two airlines are also looking at working more closely in the maintenance of aircraft components.

By codesharing with Garuda, KLM can offer its customers daily connections between Singapore and Denpasar. In turn, Garuda's passengers will gain access to greater frequency between these destinations.

KLM now flies three times weekly from Amsterdam to Singapore and onward to Denpasar. From mid-January 2010 KLM’s frequency will increase to four flights a week. Garuda flies this route every day of the week.

The maintenance agreements will offer KLM the opportunity to contract out the maintenance of fan cowls to Garuda Maintenance Facilities AeroAsia, which services PT Garuda, the national airline.

Indonesian plane skids off runway 10:48, December 14, 2009

A Boeing 737-400 plane operated by Indonesian budget airline, Lion Air, skidded off the runway when it landed in Pekanbaru airport, Sumatra, Sunday, local media reported.

The report said that the plane's gear passed off the runway and ended up at the tip of the airport's runway at around 15:00 local time.

It made passengers panic and disrupted flights in and out the Pekanbaru airport for hours. Many planes delayed their flight schedules. It took one hour to evacuate 165 passengers from the plane, the report said.

"We ban the pilot, M. Novan, from continuing his flight duty on Sunday and order Lion Air to undertake internal audit on the plane, aborted all of the plane's flights schedule until we have received the report on the audit result," Transportation Ministry Spokesperson Bambang Ervan was quoted by the Detik.com as saying.

Plane landing mishaps were frequently reported recently. Earlier this month, a Fokker 100 plane operated by Merpati Nusantara airlines landed with incomplete landing gear in East Nusantenggara province airport that disrupted all flights in the airport.

Soekarno-Hatta world’s 2nd most on-time airport
The Jakarta Post , Jakarta | Tue, 12/15/2009 11:17 PM | Jakarta

Despite numerous complaints about its meager services, the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport is good at one thing: punctuality.

Luxury travel news portal Forbestraveler.com has announced that the airport is the second most on-time international airport worldwide according to data from FlightStats, an Oregon-based company that tracks flight information for airports and airlines around the world.

The portal ranked Soekarno-Hatta below reigning champion, Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, and above Narita, which came in third.

The data defined an on-time airport as one having the most flights less than 15 minutes late.

The same yardstick is used by the Geneva-based Airports Council International.
The study, which included 50 of the busiest airports in the world, took data from August 1, 2008, to July 31, 2009.

The portal’s report called Soekarno-Hatta this year’s most improved airport on its top ten as it ”jumped from last year’s sixth slot thanks to impressive 84.2 percent on-time arrivals and 89.2 percent on-time departures.”

Arrival and departure flights were 79.3 percent and 86.3 percent on-time, respectively, last year.

Garuda FRN buyback flops as IPO looms
Nani Afrida , The Jakarta Post , Jakarta | Wed, 12/16/2009 9:19 AM | Business

State airline company PT Garuda Indonesia failed Tuesday to make an offer to buy back floating rate notes (FRN) from bondholders, after the required number of investors failed to attend a meeting in Singapore.

The meeting, hosted by law firm K&L Gates LLP., was only attended by bondholders representing about 60 percent of the unredeemed notes due in 2007. A quorum of at least 75 percent was required before the meeting.

The failure indicates a preference among investors to stick to the existing FRN contract, which means full payment of the debt and interests, as well as the execution of penalties involved.

Garuda spokesman Pudjobroto confirmed the failure, but declined to comment on why some of the bondholders refused to hear the company’s offer.

“The meeting will be rescheduled to Jan. 11, still in Singapore,” he said.

Garuda is required by its shareholders to restructure its liabilities prior to entering the bourse.

State SOE Minister Mustafa Abubakar said Tuesday the initial public offering of the state company would be carried out in the second half of next year.

The company initially allocated US$25 million for the planned repurchases and provided bondholders with an opportunity to tender their notes at a discounted rate.

“The buyback will give more benefits to bondholders,” said Garuda president director Emirsyah Satar.

He added the buyback was an important step in completing Garuda’s debt restructuring, as it would provide long-term stability for the airline’s operations and the repayment of the notes.

Garuda currently owes $305.2 million and Rp 366.2 billion worth of FRN due in 2007.

Even with the company now forced to postpone the meeting to buy back its FRN, Pudjobroto said it had no plan to postpone selling its stake through an Initial Public Offering (IPO) in 2010.

“We’re still preparing the Garuda IPO,” he said.

Garuda plans to sell a 40 percent stake through the IPO, expecting to bring in $300 million to $400 million in proceeds.

The company had been set for the IPO this year, but had to restructure its debts first.

It will spend $100 million next year as part of its five-year expansion plan, aimed at increasing its fleet from 67 aircraft to 116 by 2014, to serve 27 million passengers, up from 10.1 million recorded in 2008.

Garuda remains confident it will be able to achieve its operational targets and make Rp 3.75 trillion ($397.5 million) in profits by 2014.

In 2008, the airline booked Rp 669 billion in profits, out of total revenue of Rp 19.4 trillion.

For 2009, Garuda has set a minimum 10 percent growth target in net profits compared to a year earlier.

In the first half of the year, net profits stood at Rp 612 billion.

Lion Air receives more new Boeing aircraft
Novan Iman Santosa , The Jakarta Post , Jakarta | Thu, 12/17/2009 9:43 AM | Business

Indonesian privately-owned airline Lion Air will soon be operating the first 30 Boeing 737-900ER out of the 178 aircraft it has ordered from the American aircraft maker, the airline said in statement recently.

Three aircraft, with registration numbers PK-LGM, PK-LGO, and PK-LGP have arrived at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport on Monday while another one, PK-LGQ, is scheduled to arrive on Dec. 22 to augment the existing fleet of 26 aircraft of this type, the airlines said in a media release obtained by The Jakarta Post.

“The aircraft is designed for today’s air transport needs with longer range, faster, lower noise, more environmentally friendly and more economical,” the airline said.

“The aircraft is equipped with [electronic] devices allowing it to have higher landing accuracy, a better all-weather radar system and deployment of winglets to increase stability and fuel efficiency.”

Lion Air’s Boeing 737-900ER aircraft is configured to carry 220 passengers in an optimum single-class layout.

The airlines said it chose the aircraft for its range of 3,200 nautical miles or 5,900 kilometers.

The aircraft will be deployed to increase flight frequency on existing routes as well as to replace other types of aircraft.

Currently Lion Air operates MD-90s, Boeing 737-300s and 737-400s for domestic and regional routes as well as larger Boeing 747-400 jumbo jets for its route to Jeddah in Saudi Arabia. This makes Lion Air an all-Boeing operator.

For domestic routes, flight frequency on the Jakarta-Denpasar route will be increased to seven times daily, Jakarta-Surabaya will have 11 daily flights while the Jakarta-Medan route will fly 14 times daily.
Regionally, the Jakarta-Singapore route will be served six times daily.

“The new aircraft will also allow Lion Air to open new routes in the eastern part of Indonesia such as the Makassar-Luwuk, Makassar-Manokwari and Makassar-Sorong routes,” the airline said.

Meanwhile, Lion Air has successfully flown the Jakarta-Jeddah direct route daily since Nov. 7 making it the first Indonesian private airline to fly the route.

Lion Air claims a load factor of 96 percent for the route in the past two months.

Garuda has started to retrofit its A333 with full horizontal lie flat in C and AVOD on all classes. The first A333 to go through this retrofit is PK-GPF. The new products can be seen here.

http://www.indoflyer.net/forum/tm.as...55625;�

This is indeed an exciting time for Garuda Indonesia. So far, there have been 4 A332s and 1 A333 with fully horizontal flat beds. AVOD IFEs are now available in 9 aircraft (4 A332s, 1 A333, and 4 B738NGs)

One more B738NG, PK-GMF will soon be delivered as well.

Garuda stopped air travel from KL to Denpasar and Medan in 2004 due to poor traffic mainly due to the Bali bombings.

Tendean said Garuda is looking to grow its Malaysian business, which contributes around 3-5 per cent to group net profit and revenue.
Garuda, which made an operating revenue of RM7 billion last year, currently operates one daily flight for its KL-Jakarta-Lombok-Jakarta-KL route.

"Our load factor for the KL-Jakarta-KL route is around 70 per cent. This is an amazing increase from 45 per cent last year when it first started," Tendean said.

The flight to Lombok was introduced on November 1 this year. Garuda is using its 737-300 aircraft for the service but will switch to 737-800 in May 2010.

The carrier's fleet, which now consists of 63 aircraft, will double by 2014. It is buying new Boeing 777s, 737s and Airbus A330-200s.

"We have a few plans here. We know that Denpasar, Medan and Lombok are popular among Malaysians. Flight frequencies may increase in the near future." he added.

Garuda has code share agreements with more than seven airlines in Asia Pacific, including Malaysia Airlines (MAS) to help it strengthen its business.

Its partnership with MAS was inked six years ago, when it stopped flights to Bali and Medan.

"The partnership with the airlines is important to help Garuda grow. Competition is stiffer due to excess capacity led by weaker demand for travel.

"We are competing with Merpati Air and Lion Air for traffic here, which is why we developed the Lombok route," Tendean said.

Tendean said he expects the business from Kuala Lumpur to Lombok to be positive thanks to Malaysian companies like Sime Darby, Tabung Haji, Felcra and Felda hiring workers from the region.

He said there are some 50,000 people from Lombok employed in Malaysia and that is set to grow.

Garuda Indonesia is selling four Boeing 737-400s as it no longer needs the aircraft.

The national carrier has issued a notice announcing that the 737-400s are up for auction, and that interested parties can inspect the aircraft from 23 November to 2 December.

"We are getting 50 737-800s and 10 Boeing 777s, so we have no need for these 737-400s," says a Garuda spokesman. He adds that the airline wants a younger and more fuel-efficient fleet.

In recent months, the airline has been receiving Airbus A330s and Boeing 737-800s on lease. Today, it is holding a ceremony in Jakarta to mark the delivery of its 17th 737-800 and 10th A330, says the spokesman. It will have 20 737-800s by year-end, he adds.

According to Flightglobal's ACAS database, Garuda has 19 737-400s. It owns seven and all of the 737-400s were built in 1993.

Four airports to receive awards
The Jakarta Post , Jakarta | Wed, 12/23/2009 11:05 AM | National

JAKARTA: Four airports have been chosen as the best airports based on customer satisfaction.

“This was based on results of a questionnaire that is quite representative and free from sponsors,” Indonesian Aviation Company Association secretary-general Tengku Burhanuddin said.

The four airports are Adisutjipto in Yogyakarta; Selaparang in Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara; Terminal III Soekarno-Hatta in Cengkareng and Adi Sumarmo in Surakarta, Central Java, Tengku, who is also the jury leader of the Airport Award ceremony said in Jakarta on Monday.

The Adisutjipto Airport was chosen for the category of old terminal full of passengers; Selaparang for the category of old terminals not full of passengers; Terminal III Soekarno–Hatta for the category of new terminal full of passengers and Adi Soemarmo for the category of new terminal not full of passengers.

The Adi Soemarmo Airport was also presented with four other awards for the categories of security, facility, comfort and cleanliness of new airport not full of passengers, Tengku said.

The Terminal III of Soekarno-Hatta Airport was awarded for its security and cleanliness in the category of new airports full of passenger, he added.
