More planes are taking to the skies this month everywhere in the world apart from North America, according to OAG Aviation.

Airline schedules have decreased by 0.5 percent in North America, the only region to buck predicted global growth that will see the total number of flights increase 6% over the same month last year.

Central and South America, however, showed impressive domestic growth, with seat availability expected to rise 16.8 percent to 21.4 million seats in June.

Flights within the Middle East are also expected to continue their growth trend, posting a 12.8 percent increase and flights within Asia Pacific are expected to rise 10.1 percent.

In total, 2.6 million aircraft will take to the skies this month, an increase from 2.4 million in June 2009.

The Middle East and Asia-Pacific are expected to continue to show a growth in visitors, with 12 percent and 11 percent more flights on offer respectively.

OAG singled out travel between North America and Asia Pacific as being particularly strong, with Beijing to North America increasing by 20 percent and Vancouver to Asia-Pacific increasing 14 percent.

The route between North America and Singapore, a business hub in the Asia-Pacific region, was the only one to decline in capacity, dropping 34 percent.

Indonesia's Jakarta airport posted a staggering growth in departures and arrivals to handle an estimated 4.3 million passengers in June, an annual jump of 45 percent which follows the lifting of international restrictions on some Indonesian airlines because of safety concerns.
I can see Jakarta's annual passengers number hits 40 million mark by the end of 2010

We plan to increase the number of domestic departures by double to 2,072 per week and international departures more than threefold to 1,222 a week by 2014,” said Emirsyah Satar, President & CEO, Garuda Indonesia.

Garuda Indonesia also plans to almost double its current fleet of 71 aircraft to 116 aircraft by 2014, based mainly on Boeing 737-800 NGs and Airbus A330-300/200s, which are operated on medium and long haul routes.

Batavia, AirAsia all clear for Europe flights, says government
Nani Afrida, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Fri, 07/02/2010 9:26 AM | Headlines A | A | A |
Two more Indonesian airlines will be granted permission to fly in European airspace since they have surpassed safety requirements imposed by the European Commission, an Indonesian government official says.

The commission would announce this month that the ban on passenger flights to Europe by Batavia Air and AirAsia would be lifted, Air Transportation Director General Herry Bakti S. Gumay told reporters on Thursday.

The two airlines will follow four other airlines that have already received permits since the ban on all Indonesian airlines flying in European airspace was imposed in July 2007. The four airlines are Garuda Indonesia, Mandala Airlines, Airfast Indonesia and PremiAir.

“Batavia and AirAsia will have to wait until the Commission’s decision to be approved by the EU parliament in two weeks from now,” Herry said.

Two weeks ago, Herry Bakti along with airlines representatives visited Brussels to seek approval from the EU aviation commission to remove Batavia Air, AirAsia and Lion Air from the flight ban list.

The commission has agreed to lift ban only on Batavia and AirAsia, while Lion Air must fulfill further requirements.

“As a company, Lion is very progressive in its business, so the commission wants to know about its preparations for flying to European countries,” Herry said.

Herry also said the commission’s assessment had nothing to do with the fact that the entire Lion Air fleet were planes produced by the US-based Boeing Company, and not its European competitor, Airbus.

“The important thing for the commission is safety,” he said.

In 2008, Lion Air announced a deal to purchase 178 Boeing 737-900ER aircraft. At present the company operates 46 Boeing 737-900ER, eight 737-400, two Boeing 737-300 and two 747-400 passenger jets.

AirAsia Indonesia marketing director, Widijastoro, told The Jakarta Post that AirAsia was satisfied the commission had lifted the ban on the company. However, he acknowledged that Airasia had no plans to fly to Europe at this stage.

“Once the EU removes us from its blacklist, European people will not be so worried about traveling with AirAsia to other places,” he said, adding that Europeans currently preferred to fly airlines recommended in their home countries to avoid difficulties in claiming insurance.

Of all Indonesian airlines granted permission to fly in Europe, only Garuda has commenced flights. Garuda recommenced flights to Europe on June 1, with a Jakarta-Amsterdam route, via Dubai. The company plans to have flights from the capital to Frankfurt, London, Paris and Rome, beginning next year.

At present, Garuda operates four Airbus A330-200 aircraft to serve the Jakarta-Amsterdam route. The flight departs daily from Jakarta at 8:40 p.m. and 11 a.m. from Amsterdam.

Garuda May Finish Debt Reorganization Within Two Weeks

Indonesian flag-carrier Garuda Indonesia, seeking to reorganize debt ahead of a planned initial share sale, said it may reach an agreement with creditors within two weeks.

Lawyers are finalizing an accord with European credit agencies, Chief Executive Officer Emirsyah Satar said today at an aviation conference in Beijing. Export agencies are owed about $325 million in unpaid loans by Jakarta-based Garuda, a person familiar with the matter said last week.

Concluding the creditor talks, which have lasted more than three years, would pave the way for Garuda’s plans to raise $300 million in an initial public offering by the end of September. The carrier is seeking funds as it expands its fleet and adds flights to Europe.

Debt reorganization “is a milestone in terms of preparing us for the IPO,” Satar said.

The airline is filling as much as 80 percent of seats on services to Amsterdam via Dubai after starting flights last month, Satar said. The flights, which ended a six-year hiatus on European services, began after the European Union eased a ban on the Indonesian airlines that was imposed after fatal crashes.

Garuda may now add flights to Frankfurt and London next year, and it’s also considering Paris and Rome, Satar said.

“We want to see how things are moving with our Amsterdam route‚“ before adding new destinations, he said. “Europe is in the middle of a crisis.”

Garuda received 1 trillion rupiah ($110 million) from the Indonesian government in 2006 to help it keep flying and has been negotiating with bondholders since 2007 over notes that were not redeemed.

Maturities on some outstanding liabilities will be extended to 2016, spokesman Pujobroto said last week.

Garuda's Desperate Need for More Pilots

Indonesian National Airline Needs at Least 600 New Pilots to Serve Growing Fleet and Expanding Routes.

(7/10/2010) Bisnis.com reports that the national airline Garuda needs more than 600 pilots to meet its current shortfall in cockpit staff.

The corporate secretary for Garuda's Pilot Association (APG), Josias Pontonuwu, said the need for more pilots is tied to the airlines new aircraft and new routes.

Pontonuwu explained that the crop of new pilots graduating from Indonesian flight academies is insufficient to meet current staffing requirements. "We (Garuda) still need more or less 600 pilots. Other airlines certainly need hundreds of pilots."

To underline his point, Pontonuwu mentioned the various advertisements being placed in the Indonesian press seeking new pilots over the past few months. He maintains that this development has caused many pilots to change places of employment.

"In the end, the airline that pays the highest wages is the one who gets to employ the pilot," Pontonuwu concluded.

Indonesia Air Asia to Operate Denpasar-Darwin

AirAsia to Fly from Bali to Darwin in October 2010.

(7/17/2010) The Indonesia arm of AirAisa (IAA) have announced their intention to operate direct flights between Denpasar and Darwin commencing October 2010. The service connecting Bali to Australia's northwest will take up routes recently abandoned by the Indonesian national flag carrier Garuda Indonesia.

As reported in Bisnis.com, the President Director of IAA, Dharmadi, said the new service would operate four times a week using Airbus A320 aircraft with a capacity of 180 passengers.

Explaining his airlines decision to fly the new route, Dharmadi said the Denpasar-Darwin route can be flown in just 2 hours, well within the 5 hour flight range of the A 320. Final approval to permit flight operations over the new route, now rests with civil aviation authorities in Jakarta and Canberra. IAA currently operates flights to Australia on the Denpasar-Perth, Western Australia route.

If approved, operations by IAA between Bali and Darwin will place the Indonesia airline in direct competition with JetStar Australia who also operate this route using A320 equipment.

Dharmadi told Bisnis.com. that the current twice-weekly service is averaging passenger loads above 90%, primarily comprised of Australia tourists.

IAA is targeting to convert their entire armada to A320 aircraft, bringing to 14 the total number of planes in their fleet by the end of November 2010.

49% of IAA is owned by AirAsia Berhad Malaysia.

AIRSHOW-UPDATE 1-Russia's Sukhoi signs $951 mln Superjet deal

Mon Jul 19, 2010 11:33am EDT

* Says Finmeccanica JV to sell 30 planes for near $1 bln

* Indonesia's Kartika is the buyer

(Adds company comment, detail)

FARNBOROUGH, England, July 19 (Reuters) - Russian planemaker Sukhoi will sell 30 of its Superjet 100 aircraft to Indonesia's Kartika in a $951 million deal, the company said at the Farnborough airshow on Monday.

Sukhoi, which is making the passenger planes in partnership with Italy's Finmeccanica (SIFI.MI), said in a statement it would deliver the planes between 2012 and 2015.

"This deal is a new chapter in the Sukhoi Superjet 100 programme ... Our strategic goal (is) to take a solid position in the South East Asia market," the joint venture's president Vladimir Prisyazhnyuk said in a statement.

Sukhoi, better known for its fighter jets, wants to deliver the first Superjet 100s to customers led by state airline Aeroflot (AFLT.MM) by the end of the year, but the programme has been dogged by delays. [ID:nLDE65H1ZQ]

The company is owned by state-controlled United Aviation Corporation (UAC) (UNAC.RTS). The Superjet 100 will be the first passenger plane built by Russia since the fall of the Soviet Union, and will attempt to challenge market kings Airbus (EAD.PA) and Boeing (BA.N) in the regional carrier sector.

Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company and Kartika Airlines finalize the deal for 30 Sukhoi Superjet 100 airplanes

July 19, 2010 by Marcel van Leeuwen

Farnborough. Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company (SCAC) and an Indonesian regional carrier Kartika Airlines have finalized an order for 30 SSJ100/95B aircraft. The deal is valued at 951mln. USD at current list prices.

The contract signed by the president of SCAC Vladimir Prishyazhnyuk and the CEO of Kartika Mr. Kim Johanes Mulia confirms the earlier intention of Kartika to buy SSJ100 jetliners. The Heads of Agreement announced in Jakarta in December 2008 included 15 aircraft and 15 as an option. The document sealed today incorporates all 30 aircraft as a firm order with the delivery schedule planned for 2012-2015.

“Sukhoi Superjet 100 is a perfect tool to bridge the market gap on regional capacity as major Indonesian carriers are focused on large single aisle aircraft. With this new right-sized aircraft we can develop and serve more point-to-point destinations with obvious operational efficiency and unsurpassed comfort for passengers” – stated the CEO of Kartika Mr. Kim Johanes Mulia Jiauw.

«I welcome aboard our first South East Asia customer – Kartika Airlines. This deal is a new chapter in the Sukhoi Superjet 100 Program. It’s a real milestone in achievement of our strategic goal to take a solid position in the South East Asia market. Indonesia is a country with robust GDP growth, geography and demography ideal for air transportation. I strongly believe that Kartika’s experience in flying SSJ100 will pave the way to new orders coming from the region”, – said the President of SCAC Vladimir Prishyazhnyuk, commenting the deal.

Tiger Airways to Double Flights to Jakarta

In the recent distribution of limited traffic rights by Singapore’s Air Traffic Rights Committee (ATRC), Tiger Airways won the right to double its services between Jakarta and Singapore.

Having flown daily and delivering a strong 85% network load factor for the last financial year, Tiger will fly the route twice daily starting from late 2010.

Rosalynn Tay, Managing Director of Tiger Airways Singapore, said, “We are pleased to be awarded additional rights to the popular Jakarta-Singapore route. We look forward to serving more passengers between the neighbouring Asean cities with our low, low fares. With twice the number of flights and choice of timings, we will be even better armed to lead the low-fare revolution to the benefit of consumers.”

AirAsia Increases Frequencies for Hari Raya

AirAsia is increasing its flight frequencies for selected cities throughout the festive season of Hari Raya between 3 September and 17 September 2010.

The destinations included for the additional flights are Kuala Terengganu (from 3x daily to 9x daily), Kota Bharu (from 6x daily to 12x daily), Langkawi (from 7x daily to 11x daily), Solo (from once daily to 5x daily), Yogyakarta (from once daily to 3x daily), Medan (from 4x daily to 6x daily) and Surabaya (from 4x daily to 8x daily).

We hope that by planning and announcing the additional flights earlier, our guests will be able to beat the usual ‘balik kampung’ rush. We have also decided to add frequencies for four Indonesian routes to facilitate the Indonesian workforce in Malaysia to return to their families for Hari Raya. Furthermore, with the Hari Raya break, guests can also take advantage of these additional flights and AirAsia’s low fares for a relaxing break from work.”

Australia's Jetstar wants to use fifth freedoms beyond Indonesia

By Leithen Francis

Qantas Airways has applied, on behalf of its subsidiary Jetstar, for traffic rights beyond Indonesia to other points in Asia.

The Oneworld carrier says in its application to Australia's International Air Services Commission that it wants 3,898 additional seats per week on the Indonesia route and for 727 seats and four frequencies per week beyond Indonesia.

A Jetstar spokesman declines to say what will be the destination beyond Indonesia but the group's move to apply for fifth freedom rights comes days after Singapore-based Jetstar Asia lost some of its traffic rights on the Singapore-Jakarta route.

Jetstar CEO Bruce Buchanan has stated publicly in the past that Jetstar can use Australia's fifth freedom rights beyond Indonesia, if it ever wanted to boost services between Singapore and Indonesia.

Jetstar Asia lost seven of its weekly slots on the Singapore-Jakarta route, bringing its allocation down to 17 flights per week. But if it uses the four weekly frequencies - gained from Australian fifth freedoms - then Jetstar Asia can market a thrice-daily service on the Singapore-Jakarta route.

Flight frequency is particularly important on the Jakarta-Singapore route, because it caters very much to business travellers who like to fly to Jakarta and return that same day.

Possible further reallocation of air rights for flight routes: analysts

By Ryan Huang | Posted: 27 July 2010 2208 hrs

SINGAPORE: Analysts say there may be further reallocation of air rights for routes between Singapore and other regional destinations.

It follows the unusual move recently by Singapore to shift some air rights for flights to Jakarta.

This was a boost to Tiger Airways at the expense of its rival Jetstar/Valuair.

Tiger Airways has been spreading its wings with more flights to Chinese cities.

Last week, it also took a bigger bite of the lucrative Singapore-Jakarta route - doubling the number of its flights there - made possible because it received extra air rights from Singapore authorities, which were reallocated from its rival Jetstar.

Observers say the move is highly unusual and could raise some uncertainty in the industry.

Deputy Asia editor, Flightglobal, Leithen Francis says: "I think the committee felt that they wanted to maybe reallocate some slots to give Tiger a double daily service so they can compete more effectively against Jetstar. But it could cause a little bit of uncertainty because I think once an airline gets traffic rights, they would like some surety that they are going to retain those traffic rights.

"Because to establish a new destination, a new route, involves a lot of investment and people and it takes time to generate the traffic. And once you do generate the traffic, then you'd want to get the return on your investment, and if you lose those traffic rights, then you lose your investment."

Before the move, Tiger had seven non-stop services a week on the Singapore-Jakarta route, while Singapore-based Jetstar Asia had 24 weekly flights.

With the reallocation, Tiger now gets 14 services a week, while Jetstar will have a reduced number of 17 flights.

Analysts say the move could set the precedent for rights on other routes to be tweaked, such as the lucrative Singapore-Kuala Lumpur sector.

Aviation analyst at Standard & Poor's, Shukor Yusof believes this may happen within the next 1.5 years.

Mr Yusof says: "In future there will be some tweaks, some alignments being made, realigning some of these flights to low cost carriers instead of niche carriers like SilkAir or even Singapore Airlines.

"People are more demanding, more aware in the differences in airfares, and people are getting used to flying budget air and for a 45-minute flight. They would want the most economical for their flights, rather than to fly big airlines. You can see some alignments being made now, SilkAir has taken over SQ as being the main carrier for the Singapore-KL sector."

Analysts believe that it may also take less than two years before the cap on air rights on popular Indonesian cities like Jakarta and Surabaya are raised to allow more flights.

Indonesia has given Singapore carriers only limited air rights because it wants to protect its own domestic carriers.

Still, analysts don't expect the reallocation of rights to affect Singapore's status as an air hub because it has many liberalised air services agreements with other countries that don't impose a limit on flights.

Singapore Air Traffic Rights Committee declined to explain its decision, but said there is no automatic renewal of rights for carriers.

These are assessed based on various criteria, including market conditions and the level of utilisation by the airline.

Jetstar says it's in talks to appeal the official decision. The results of the appeal are expected in two weeks' time.

Tiger Airways declined to comment on the issue.

The ATRC was established in 2003 to allocate Singapore's air traffic rights to Singapore carriers in a manner that maximises both the state interest as well as the benefits to the travelling public.

The ATRC is chaired by the permanent secretary of the Ministry of Transport, and includes senior representatives from various government agencies like the Singapore Tourism Board, Economic Development Board, International Enterprise Singapore, Attorney-General's Chambers and the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore.

$100 Bali fares likely in air war

GEOFFREY THOMAS AVIATION EDITOR, The West Australian July 29, 2010, 2:05 am

three Indonesian airlines banned from flying to Europe because of safety concerns are expected to be granted rights to fly the popular Perth-Bali route, sparking another price war.

Travel agents predict one-way fares could dip below $100 after news that a fourth Indonesian airline, Batavia Air, which has just had a European Union ban lifted, will start a daily service to Denpasar on August 26.

Sriwijaya Air, Mandala Airlines and Lion Air have also applied in Indonesia for access to the route.

The number of travellers to Bali has more than doubled in five years from 214,000 in 2005 to 463,352 last year. Early figures point to another 50 per cent increase on 2009 this year.

Pacific Blue, Jetstar, Indonesia AirAsia, Strategic Airlines and Garuda Indonesia already operate 52 flights a week on the Perth-Bali route.


Batavia Air director Hasudungan Pandiangan said the airline would target young adults and families.

"Bali is always a popular destination for Western Australians and we are proud to finally service Perth in our network," he said.

Batavia Air will use a 144-seat Airbus A319 on the route.

Several travel agents expressed dismay, suggesting that some Indonesian airlines would not be able to sustain services because of the expected fare war.

"It is crazy to allow all these new airlines, none will be able to achieve economies of scale," one agent said.

Over the past 20 years, Sempati Air, Merpati Airlines and Air Paradise have collapsed or withdrawn from the route while Jetstar replaced Qantas and OzJet went into liquation last year.

Indonesia AirAsia's fares typically start from $298 return but are often on special for about $180 return with labour costs for the Indonesian based airlines up to 80 per cent lower than for Australian carriers in some areas.
Fares are yet to be announced for the new airlines but lead-in specials are likely to be under $50 one-way, agents suggest.

Bali to build second airport in Buleleng
The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Sat, 07/31/2010 5:19 PM | Archipelago

Bali administration plans to build another international airport in Buleleng regency on the northern part of the tourist island.

Governor Made Mangku Pastika said the second airport would be needed to anticipate the fast growing number of tourists visiting the island, which the existing Ngurah Rai airport would not be able to accommodate in the future.

“The new airport will avoid an overcrowded traffic of airplanes at Ngurah Rai,” Pastika told Antara news agency on Saturday.

The airport receives two million foreign tourists and over two million domestic tourists annually.

Pastika said the construction of a new airport was expected to accelerate development in the north, which is lagging behind south Bali in terms of welfare.

Buleleng was the capital of Bali and Nusa Tenggara province in the past.

Pastika said, however, a plan to expand the Ngurah Rai airport would go ahead despite the proposal to build an airport in Buleleng.
