Airlines gearing up for Idul Fitri exodus

Quote:
Although the fasting month has just started, local airlines have begun to provide additional flights to meet the surge in passenger traffic during the Idul Fitri holidays, when millions of people will return to their hometowns.

National flag carrier Garuda Indonesia will provide 92 extra flights from Aug. 15 to 26, or equal to 20,484 extra seats for travelers during the Islamic holidays at the end of the fasting month on Aug. 19 or 20.

Vice president of corporate communications Pudjobroto said the extra seats would be on flights from Jakarta to Yogyakarta; Padang, West Sumatra; Denpasar, Bali; and Singapore.

The company would add 28 flights for the Jakarta-Singapore route, 26 flights for both the Jakarta-Padang and Jakarta-Denpasar routes, and 12 flights for the Jakarta-Yogyakarta route, he said.

“Singapore is the most favorite route because today’s trend is that people see Idul Fitri like a holiday,” he told The Jakarta Post.

He said that Garuda has yet to decide to add more flights from Jakarta to Medan, North Sumatra; Palembang, South Sumatra; Surabaya, East Java; and Balikpapan, East Kalimantan, because the airline currently has provided more than 10 flights a day for each route.

“We implement a flexible response policy that allows us to add more flights in any route during the exodus. We only have to look at the demand later,” he said.

He also encouraged Garuda passengers to check-in at the airline sales offices across the capital city, such as Garuda Gallery in Senayan City mall or Garuda Indonesia Holiday at Wisma Bumiputera, South Jakarta, to prevent long queue in Soekarno-Hatta International Airport’s check-in counter.

In addition, he said that Citilink Indonesia intends to provide 70,560 more seats from Aug. 15 to 26 in all of its routes, including Jakarta-Surabaya, Jakarta-Balikpapan, Jakarta-Batam and Jakarta-Banjarmasin.

Contacted separately, privately owned Batavia Air commercial director Sukirno Soekarna said that the airline would add 13 flights, or equal to 2,340 extra seats from Aug. 10 to 18, and Aug. 22 to Sept. 3, to serve travelers during Idul Fitri.

The extra flights would be for Jakarta-Surabaya, Jakarta-Yogyakarta, Jakarta-Padang, Jakarta-Semarang, Jakarta-Solo, Jakarta-Denpasar, Jakarta-Tanjung Pinang, Surabaya-Balikpapan, and Yogyakarta-Pontianak.

Similar to Garuda, he said that Batavia would provide more flights if the demand was high in the last few days of Ramadhan.

“With 33 aircraft, including the new Airbus A330s and A320s, Batavia is able to anticipate surging demand from the air travelers during the Idul Fitri holiday,” Sukirno told the Post.

He also said that the airline enjoyed up to a 10 percent load factor increase from their Jakarta-Jeddah route during the fasting month, as Muslims conduct minor hajj or umroh trips with their families and relatives.

The airline currently flies to Jeddah 10 times a week, he said.

Moreover, the largest low cost carrier in the country, Lion Air, has recently proposed extra flights to the Transportation Ministry and is waiting for approval.

General affairs director Edward Sirait said they plan to add flights in a number of several busy routes, such as Jakarta-Padang, Jakarta-Banjarmasin, Jakarta-Palembang and Jakarta-Surabaya.

For the foreign airlines, state-owned airport operator Angkasa Pura II (AP II) corporate secretary Trisno Heryadi said that the company has received more than 100 extra flights from Singapore Airlines, Tiger Airways, Cathay Pacific, Korean Air, China Southern Airlines, Qantas and Value.

AirAsia deal stirs budget aviation rivalries



Quote:
The acquisition of domestic carrier Batavia Air by AirAsia Berhad will likely have a smooth landing as Asia’s largest low-cost airline teams up with its local partner to avert the ownership cap imposed on foreign companies on Indonesian airlines.

However, the acquisition will fuel competition among the country’s low-cost airlines such as major player Lion Air, which controls 47 percent of the market, Garuda Indonesia’s budget airline subsidiary Citilink, which has just begun to fly under its own brand, and several other smaller airline companies.

Transportation Ministry spokesman Bambang Ervan said in Jakarta on Thursday that the acquisition would not violate the national aviation law, which limits foreign ownership to 49 percent in a national airline.

“The acquisition is in line with the 2009 Aviation Law because an Indonesian company remains the major shareholder in Batavia Air,” Bambang told The Jakarta Post.

AirAsia and its Indonesian partner PT Fersindo Nusaperkasa, owner of a 51 percent stake in Indonesia AirAsia (IAA) signed an agreement on Thursday to buy PT Metro Batavia, the owner of Batavia Air for US$80 million.

Indonesian Govt says it has not yet approved AirAsia's acquisition of Batavia Air
(The Jakarta Globe, July 27)

Quote:
The Transportation Ministry says it has not officially been informed of the acquisition of Indonesian Batavia Air by Malaysia's AirAsia. “That means it is not yet certain if the ministry will approve the acquisition,” Herry Bhakti, the ministry's air transportation director general, said here on Friday.

The ministry has yet to determine if the acquisition is in line with the prevailing regulations, such as those concerning the division of Batavia Air's shares, Herry said. An Indonesian regulation prevents foreign investors from holding a majority stake in an airline operating in the country.

AirAsia Berhad and Fersindo Nusaperkasa, which are partners in Indonesia AirAsia, were reported on Thursday to have acquired Batavia Air at a price of $80 million. “After months of negotiations, finally we came to an agreement to develop a relationship between AirAsia and Batavia Air,” AirAsia Berhad CEO Tony Fernandes told reporters in Jakarta.

Bandung Air Show 2012 to be held late September

Bandung (ANTARA News) - Bandung Air show (BAS) 2012 will be held at Husein Sastranegara Airfield located in Bandung city, West Java province, on 27 to 30 September, the commander of Husein Sastranegara Air Force Base Colonel (Pilot) Umar Sugeng Haryono said here Monday.

"Bandung Air show will again be held at Husein Sastranegara Airfield with various national aerospace activities in an effort to establish Bandung as an aerospace city," the commander said.

BAS 2012 will be conducted during four days as well as a biennial agenda to commemorate the 202nd anniversary of Bandung city on 25 September.

Several aerospace activities which will be performed among others static show, dynamic show, fly pass and aerobatic and other attractive shows.

According to Col.Umar as many as 30 airplanes will be displayed on static show as well as the Indonesian aerosports which will show attractions with airplanes and parachuting. Meanwhile the Jupiter Aerobic Team and Pegasus helicopter will also perform.

"The Jupiter Aerobatic Team and Pegasus helicopter will perform every day to entertain the visitors," he noted.

The commander added the foreign participants joining the show are Malaysia, Taiwan, Singapore and others.

The BAS 2012 will be more featuring aerospace acrobatic than fighter aircraft aerobatic.

"We are targeting 50,000 visitors or more than the one in BAS 2010," Col. Umar said.

Meanwhile the director of Greenlite Kreasi Indonesia Susi Nurliah said BAS 2012 is an educative event for the people in particular for the young generation to understand the aerospace.

"Besides entertaining, BAS also educates the people," she said.

In addition to the main performance the event also provides handicrafts from small-medium scale industries and West Java culinary to enliven the big show.

Bandung has its own story on aerospace development in Indonesia where PT Dirgantara Indonesia (PTDI) located in the city has been producing world-class airplanes such as CN-235 carrier.

"Therefore through Bandung Air Show 2012 we expect to re-establish Bandung as an aerospace city," Col Umar said.

Citilink officially separates from Garuda today
Nurfika Osman, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Business | Mon, July 30 2012


Quote:

Flag carrier Garuda Indonesia’s strategic business unit Citilink officially becomes an independent airline company on Monday, an executive said.

PT Citilink Indonesia CEO Arif Wibowo said that they would operate 21 aircraft with the international code of QG after the spin-off.

“We are going to open more domestic routes to strengthen our network and increase our frequency to 120 flights per day by the end of this year,” Arif told The Jakarta Post over the phone.

Currently, the airline operates 14 aircrafts: eight Airbus A320s, five Boeing B737-400s, and one B737-300. These airlines fly 11 routes and this include: Jakarta-Denpasar, Jakarta-Balikpapan, Jakarta-Medan, Jakarta-Surabaya, and Surabaya-Makassar.

With the current fleet and routes, the flight frequency has reached 72 flights a day, Arif said.

Starting Monday, Citilink would increase the Jakarta–Surabaya flights from seven to nine flights a day, and Jakarta–Denpasar flights from two to five flights a day.

In addition, the low-cost carrier plans to open new routes linking Bandung with Surabaya and Denpasar, and Jakarta with Yogyakarta, Padang and Pekanbaru in the fourth quarter of this year.

Garuda upbeat despite $2m net loss in first semester

Quote:
Indonesia’s flag carrier PT Garuda Indonesia has suffered a US$2 million net loss in the first semester this year, but remains optimistic of booking a profit by year end, expecting an increase of flight occupancy during the holiday weeks in the upcoming months.

“We suffer losses in the first semester every year. It is common in the airline business in Indonesia, because first half is low-season and we usually see an increase in the second semester,” Garuda chief financial officer Handrito Hardjono said on Monday.

Handrito brushed off the net losses and went on to say that Garuda saw a significant improvement in its financial performance compared to the same period last year.

In the same period last year, Garuda suffered a $22 million net loss, mostly because of high operating costs of $753 million. Garuda’s operating income this year stood positive at $10 million while last year it was a negative $34 million.

The national airline also reported $1.38 billion in flight revenue, higher than $1.16 billion the company booked first semester last year.

Non-flights income sees an increase this year to $130 million, compared to last year’s figure of $ 122 million.

Garuda flew 17 million passengers in 2011, targeting an increase to 22 million this year. “Up to June, our passenger numbers have reached 9.7 million,” Handrito said.

Garuda’s low-cost carrier, Citilink, announced on Monday that it was officially independent from Garuda. Citilink, which has served 1.2 million passengers from January to June, operates 21 planes and will fly internationally using QG as its code after the spin-off from Garuda and becoming a subsidiary.

“We are going to open more domestic routes to strengthen our network and increase our frequency to 120 flights per day by the end of this year,” Citilink CEO Arif Wibowo told The Jakarta Post.

AirAsia opens regional HQ in Jakarta

Quote:
The world’s largest low-cost carrier AirAsia officially opened the company’s regional headquarters in Jakarta on Tuesday as part of the airline’s program to further spread its wings in Southeast Asia.

AirAsia Group’s CEO Tony Fernandes said in Jakarta the AirAsia ASEAN regional office would help the airline to better prepare itself for the implementation of the ASEAN Open Sky policy and the ASEAN Economic Community in 2015.

Besides Indonesia, ASEAN comprises Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.

“We are here not to control the market, but to grow the aviation business and we hope AirAsia ASEAN will help spur ASEAN integration,” he added.

“The establishment of the AirAsia ASEAN office in Jakarta as our regional base is to help to more fully deliver our pledge — ‘Now Everyone Can Fly’ — to all the people of ASEAN and beyond,” Tony said on the sidelines of the launch, which was held to coincide with the eve of the 45th anniversary of ASEAN.

Garuda to include PSC in tickets from Sept.

Quote:
State owned airport operator Angkasa Pura II (AP II) is going to collaborate with national flag carrier Garuda Indonesia to include the passenger service charge (PSC) or airport tax in the cost of airline tickets next month.

AP II president director Tri Sunoko said the collaboration is aimed at accelerating passenger traffic in the country’s main gateway, Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Cengkareng, Banten, just west of Jakarta.

“Soekarno-Hatta International Airport is very crowded and we realize that we have to do something about it, apart from the ongoing expansion project. By including the passenger service charge in tickets, we can reduce lines at the airport,” Tri said.

AP II picked Garuda for the pilot project because it was the airline most able to immediately implement the new system. “Garuda is able to immediately implement the new system because they have an IT system that can easily be synchronized with our system,” he said.

Contacted separately, Garuda Indonesia vice president communications Pujobroto said the synchronization of its IT system and AP II’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport system had been underway for the past two months.

“We have to make sure that the integration of our system with the airport’s is in line with the International Air Transport Association standard, because we want to deliver the best service to our customers,” Pujobroto told The Jakarta Post.

He said that Garuda was proud to be the first company to implement the system at Soekarno-Hatta, and it has been preparing its IT system integration in all commercial airports across the country.

The airline has communicated its plan of including the PSC or airport tax with the other state owned airport company, Angkasa Pura I.

“We want to provide fast service and convenience to our customers through this system. We are working on the integration process step by step,” he said.

In addition, Tri Sunoko said that all domestic carriers have committed to integrating their IT system to Soekarno-Hatta International Airport’s. By the end of 2013, PSC would have been included in all airline tickets in the Cengkareng airport.

Privately owned Sriwijaya Air is one of the airlines that is ready to follow in Garuda’s footsteps.

“We are ready to implement the new system because we believe it will improve service,” Sriwijaya Air senior corporate communications manager, Agus Soedjono, said in a message.

Tri said that all AP II airports nationwide, such as: Husein Sastranegara Airport in Bandung, West Java; Sultan Mahmud Badaruddin II Airport in Palembang, South Sumatra, and Minangkabau International Airport in Padang, West Sumatra would start implementing the new system in 2014.

He said this plan was a part of AP II’s efforts to become a world-class airport operating company.

Previously, State-Owned Enterprises Minister Dahlan Iskan urged airport operators and airline companies to include the airport tax in the tickets to help reduce queues at airports by 50 percent.

Dahlan called paying airport tax in booths at the airport a “primitive action”, and one that does not suit a country like Indonesia.

Lion Air, Malaysian partner launch Malindo Airways


Quote:

Indonesian low-cost carrier Lion Air will start a hybrid airline in Malaysia in a joint venture with the country's National Aerospace and Defence Industries (NADI).

The new carrier, named Malindo Airways, will start operations in May 2013 with a fleet of 12 Boeing 737-900ER aircraft.


The airline will offer a "hybrid product" using aircraft with a two-class configuration – 12 in business and 168 in economy. The aircraft will also be equipped with in-flight entertainment systems and in-flight connectivity, Lion Air president director Rusdi Kirana said at a press event in Kuala Lumpur, ahead of the signing ceremony.

Under the agreement, NADI will hold a 51% stake in the new carrier and Lion Air 49%. The airline has named Kirana's personal assistant, Chandran Ramamuthy, as its chief executive.

Malindo will be based at Kuala Lumpur International airport's terminal two and focus on routes between Malaysia and Lion Air's hub in Indonesia before operating to other cities such as Bangkok, Manila, Hanoi and Guangzhou. It will also operate on domestic routes.

The carrier intends to add 12 aircraft to its fleet each year, including the Boeing 737 Max and 787. These aircraft will come from Lion Air's current order book, says Kirana.

The five 787s Lion Air has on order – originally set for its premium carrier Batik Air – will instead go to Malindo in 2015. Lion Air is now in talks with Boeing to order an additional 10 787s, said Kirana.

To compete as a newcomer, the new airline will offer ticket prices lower or at least on par with that of Malaysian low-cost carrier AirAsia, said Kirana, adding that Malindo will have a low cost base owing to the involvement of NADI.

Garuda Gains Most in 3 Months on July Earnings:
Jakarta Mover


September 12, 2012


Quote:


Garuda Indonesia advanced the most in three months in Jakarta trading after reporting a nearly 21-fold increase in its January to July operating income.

Garuda rose 5.1 percent to 620 rupiah as of 2:56 p.m. local time, heading for the steepest gain since June 6. The Jakarta Composite index slid 0.2 percent. The company’s January to July operating profit surged to $40.8 million from $1.9 million a year earlier, Garuda said in an e-mailed statement today.

The airline flew 10.02 million passengers over the seven-month period compared with 8.64 million a year earlier, it said. Garuda reported a net loss of $2.03 million in the first half of 2012, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

“Investors are expecting earnings improvements in the third quarter and that’s boosting the share price,” Robby Hafil, an analyst at Trimegah Securities, said by telephone today. “Garuda may start posting a profit in the third or fourth quarter because of the holiday season and the Hajj pilgrimage,” he said, referring to the annual pilgrimage in the world’s most- populous Muslim country.

The Jakarta-based airline expects to sustain its earnings growth in the second half when travelers during the Eid-al-Fitr holidays in August and during summer and winter boost demand for flights, Finance Director Handrito Hardjono said today.

Garuda is expanding its fleet to tap into a growing air travel market as the government forecast Southeast Asia’s biggest economy to expand as much as 6.5 percent this year, the fastest pace since the 1997 Asian financial crisis.

Malindo can be a threat to AirAsia

Quote:
AIRASIA supremo Tan Sri Tony Fernandes has to be publicly sanguine about the threat that Malaysia’s newest and second low-cost airline (Firefly does not count as one in our books) Malindo Airways poses.

But the shrewd operator that he is, he is much more likely to take the threat seriously in private and no doubt has his plans to reduce the threat and keep it to a minimum. It will not be at no cost though for a competitor puts pressure on margins and hence profits.

Perhaps the market has over-reacted with AirAsia’s price, in the wake of the announcement of Malindo’s formation earlier this week, being beaten down to its lowest levels this year but there is no denying that analysts have lowered forecasts for AirAsia.

With Malindo promising to have fares comparable or lower than AirAsia’s and other low cost carriers (LCCs) such as Jetstar increasing capacity in the region, the competition is already here to stay.

But that is a given considering open skies from 2015. Malindo’s entry is just helping to hasten the process and it is only to be expected that the pace of competition will heat up ahead of full-blown access.

There are some factors which continue to favour AirAsia, not least of which is its brand, its safety record and its already well-established network.

Malindo, however, has problems in all these areas.

Malindo is a joint venture owned 51% by Malaysia’s National Aerospace and Defence Industries (Nadi) and Indonesia’s LCC and largest airline Lion Air which owns the remaining 49%.

Information on both shareholders is scarce but Nadi owns Airod which maintains aircraft from Malaysia’s air force, navy and other government departments.

But information on Nadi itself is lacking, with CIMB Equity Research saying in its analysis that the company has not filed any reports to the Companies Commission from 2007. Tut, tut! Most of Nadi’s directors (from its website) are former armed forces top brass. Nadi was at one time at least owned by government investment arm Khazanah Nasional and the Ministry of Finance Inc.

Its political links are no doubt very strong as shown by the presence of the Prime Minister at the announcement of the joint venture. Also present were Nadi’s president Tan Sri Ahmad Johari and Lion Air’s president Rusdi Kirana.

Malaysian registered Malindo will begin operations in May next year and is scheduled to start from the new low cost terminal at KL International Airport slated to be completed by then.

As such it can potentially do domestic routes as well in Malaysia although that does not seem to be on the cards initially.

It is no small operation because it will start services with Lion’s 12 Boeing 737-900ER aircraft, the latest in Boeing’s 737 range. It will initially fly to Indonesian cities such as Jakarta, Medan, Bali, Palembang, and Balikpapan.

It also plans to use Kuala Lumpur as an intermediate destination for Indonesians going on to other destinations such as Manila, Bangkok, Hanoi, Guongzhou, Shenzhen and Xiamen.

It is more than clear that it is a direct threat to AirAsia.

According to press reports quoting Rusdi, the Lion Air group will provide all the money needed for the airline to grow and is targeting to grow Malindo by an annual 12 planes over the next 10 years, an ambitious target indeed.

There are very little financials available on Lion Air but Rusdi and his brother Kusnan are on Forbes’ list of the 40 richest in Indonesia at 34th with an estimated net worth of US$580mil.

That puts them in the same league as Fernandes whose net worth is estimated at US$615mil by Forbes, the 15th richest in Malaysia.

One cannot therefore underestimate the financial prowess of the Kiranas.

Lion Air is a sizeable airline. According to a CIMB Equity research report, it currently operates 85 planes mostly in the domestic Indonesian market while the AirAsia group operates 105 planes across Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines and Japan. This excludes long-haul low-cost carrier AirAsiaX.

But the group is in the midst of a major expansion and with orders of 342, against AirAsia’s 275, stands poised to overtake the latter.

However, CIMB says that if as expected AirAsia raised its orders, it might yet continue to be larger in terms of fleet size.

While Lion Air in Indonesia has had safety concerns in the past, it has moved quite fast to fix that and is increasingly accepted in terms of its safety standards. No doubt it will start pushing its brand overseas too.

Which all goes to indicate that the competition is really heating up on the low-cost sector. For the public, cheaper fares may be on the horizon for regional destinations but for the airlines there will be considerable jostling for market share and profits and some will fall and get hurt, even fatally.

But the strongest at the moment is undoubtedly AirAsia with a great regional presence, brand and innovative ways. And it is likely to maintain that position, even if it gets bruised in the process, so long as it is not too sanguine about the competition - the number one reason for the downfall of great brands through the ages.
