Cebu Pacific sets $600-M fleet expansion program
By Mary Ann Ll. Reyes | The Philippine Star | 10/19/2006


Gokongwei-owned airline company Cebu Pacific expects to spend another $600 million over the next five to six years to acquire 10 more new aircraft as part of a continuing plan to expand its service to more parts of the country and the world.

CEB president Lance Gokongwei said the amount is on top of the ongoing $670-million refleeting set to end in early 2007. Already, CEB has 12 brand-new Airbus Planes servicing 20 domestic and six regional destinations even as it is awaiting the delivery of two more in January and February next year.

Gokongwei said he expects CEB to perform better this year compared to last year both in terms of revenues and profitability, on account of the more efficient fleet brought about by the recent refleeting program and the strengthening of the foreign exchange rate.

"We see CEB having a 20 to 25 plane operation in the next five to six years. We expect the market to continue growing and there will be plenty of room for a full-service carrier (such as competitor Philippine Airlines) and a low-cost carrier such as us. The market has great potential. In fact, an average Filipino travels one-third less than the average Indonesian," Gokongwei pointed out.

He said it is still too early to tell how the acquisition of the 10 additional planes will be financed. The 12 brand-new planes acquired under the refleeting program ending early next year was financed by export credit agencies while two are leased planes. Gokongwei said using the same mode of financing for the expansion program is possible.

But Gokongwei revealed that CEB is undertaking an initial public offering (IPO) either next year or in 2008 to raise capital for further expansion, create a public market for the company, and enable some of its employees to own part of the company.

The airline is now flying to four regional destinations, which include Hong Kong, Singapore, Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur from Manila, and has introduced flights from Davao and Cebu to Hong Kong and Singapore. Gokongwei said they are looking at additional routes within the four-hour flying radius in North Asia (such as China, Taiwan, and Korea) and other countries in Southeast Asia.

A plan to fly to Japan has been shelved in the meantime as it will involve a bigger aircraft. There are reports that PAL is seeking approval to use CEB’s Japan frequency, even as the latter has asked the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) for more time before the frequency is given up.

Offering long-haul flights, Gokongwei said, is not part of CEB’s business model, even as he explained that short-haul flights are more suited for low-cost carriers.

Now on its 11th year, CEB finally grabbed the number one slot for the first time from Oct. 1 to 15 this year in terms of flying the most passengers, operating the most number of flight frequencies and routes, and flying to the most number of domestic destinations.

Latest market share report for the period covering Oct. 1 to 15, 2006 showed that CEB has a domestic market share of 45 percent and is ahead of its closest competitor (PAL) by one market share point. CEB had 149,000 passengers during the two-week period.

CEB is also now offering the most flights at 624 a week, 26 percent more than PAL’s 424. It also flies to more domestic destinations at 20, compared to its nearest competitor at 19, and more routes at 24 in the Philippines compared to PAL’s 18.

CEB has the newest fleet in the Philippines, with the average age of its 12 aircrafts at 12 months, which is also one of the youngest in Asia.

Meanwhile, Gokongwei reported that the number of CEB’s passengers (both domestic and foreign) in September this year grew by 108 percent compared to the same month last year. CEB’s domestic passenger level grew 97 percent in the same month (which he attributed largely to increased capacity of the planes) compared to the total market growth of 40 percent.

"It took us 10 years to get to number one. This is indeed a milestone in the history of Cebu Pacific and much of the credit must go to the CEB team who has worked tirelessly for the past 10 years. Now we are number one in the Philippines and hope to do the same for the region," Gokongwei said, even as he anticipates keeping the number one slot for the rest of the year.

He emphasized that the airline now offers an unbeatable combination of the lowest fares, the most number of domestic destinations and routes, the most flight frequencies, on-time flights, and the newest planes in the country. "Since the launch of our ‘Go’ fares last November, we have seen how this has influenced air travel and encouraged more people to fly. Our end-September reports show that total domestic travel was up by almost 40 percent compared to the same period last year and we believe that there’s still more we can do for the industry and the growing Philippine economy," he added.

CEB’s top executive also noted: "As we expand our operations and open new routes, both domestic and regional, we will continue to offer the lowest fares in the destinations we fly to. Tens of thousands of people are flying for the first time and that makes both our passengers and the airline very happy."

Since June, CEB has added five more domestic destinations, even as it resumed last week its Manila-Singapore flights and operationalized its Manila-Kuala Lumpur service.

CEB is also flying to Bangkok from Manila beginning Dec. 14, 2006 four times a week using one of its brand new aircrafts with a special introductory rate of only P1,999 one way. The Manila-Bangkok seat sale will run from Oct. 18 to 25 only and is good for travel from Dec. 14, 2006 to Jan. 31, 2007. CEB will be operating from the new Suvarnabhumi Airport, Bangkok’s new international airport which started operations last Sept. 28 and is currently the largest airport in the world, with the longest runway and tallest control tower.

Gokongwei said the Manila-Bangkok service is the third international destination opened by the airline this year as part of its regional expansion program. "This response to our entry to these new regional markets has been very encouraging. We’re creating a lot of excitement in the travel industry and getting a lot of requests to open more markets. With the opening of our service to Bangkok, we hope to further stimulate travel for both the business and leisure sectors to the benefit of both countries," he noted.

Meanwhile, CEB will start flying a direct service to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia four times weekly starting Nov. 30, 2006 with a special introductory rate of P1,499 one way. The seat sale will run from Oct. 11 to 18 only and is good for travel from Nov. 30 to Jan. 31, 2007.

"We’re proud to be the only Filipino carrier operating on the Manila-Kuala Lumpur route," Gokongwei said, even as he revealed plans of providing lowest cost direct flight from KL to Manila.

President Arroyo leads rites: PAL rolls out first of 20 new Airbus jets
PHILIPPINEAIRLINES.COM | 19 October 2006




MANILA - President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo leads top government officials and private-sector guests as Philippine Airlines unveils tomorrow (20 October) its newest aircraft, an Airbus A319-100, which launches the much-anticipated modernization of the flag carrier's single-aisle fleet.

The new fleet features a 21st-century enhanced cabin that is the first for an Asian carrier, state-of-the-art passenger amenities, and a new coastal-themed interior design that calls to mind the country's picturesque coastline.

A bevy of ranking officials, including Vice President Noli de Castro, Foreign Affairs Secretary Alberto G. Romulo, Transportation Secretary Leandro R. Mendoza, Trade Secretary Peter B. Favila and Tourism Secretary Joseph H. Durano, will join President Arroyo at the roll-out ceremonies at the main hangar of Lufthansa Technik Philippines in Pasay City.

PAL chairman and CEO Lucio C. Tan, vice chairman and treasurer Mariano Tanenglian, and president and chief operating officer Jaime J. Bautista will welcome the president to the event, expected to be attended by over 700 guests from the aviation, business, travel-trade and diplomatic communities.

Tomorrow's event marks the formal introduction of the A319, the first of 20 brand-new units belonging to the A320 family of single-aisle jets that will be delivered to PAL over the next six years.

The new fleet will be deployed mainly on the airline's extensive domestic network. It will also serve some Asian destinations. The new jets enable PAL to offer business-class service to all its 19 domestic points. Previously, only the major trunk routes to Cebu, Davao, Puerto Princesa and General Santos consistently enjoyed the service.

More importantly, PAL will be the sole carrier to offer business-class service in the domestic market. The A320s have 12 seats in Mabuhay (Business) Class and 144 in Fiesta (Economy) Class while the A319s have 8 Mabuhay Class and 126 Fiesta Class seats.

The package comprises a firm order for nine A320 aircraft, as well as options for five more A320s, all from Airbus. In addition, PAL will lease two brand-new A320s and four A319s from GE Commercial Aviation Services, the world's largest aircraft lessor.

PAL expects two more A319s to be delivered before the end of 2006. For 2007, seven aircraft -- six A320s and the last A319 -- will be delivered, while five A320s are on tap for 2008. Deliveries of the five option aircraft, should PAL take them up, will start in 2009 and run until 2012.

I believe the new A320-family cabins Philippine Airlines will be introduing is "the first for an Asian carrier" because it is from the new cabin designs Airbus released, showcased in the Cabin Showroom on the Airbus website. I'm not too sure though... I wanted to compare them, but the Showroom on Airbus is down right now.

The new Mabuhay (Business) Class cabin and seats shown above doesn't look amazingly great, but for a narrowbody I think those are fairly awesome amenities. Especially compared to PAL's current narrowbodied product, which mainly consisted of convertible business-economy seats where the middle seat would simply be blocked off to create a business class section when necessary.

Aside from the narrowbody fleet enhancement and renewal, PAL is also set to refurbish and upgrade their widebodied fleet. They plan to remove First Class service and provide instead permanent and uniform bi-class cabins across the entire fleet. The new widebodied Mabuhay (Business) Class is supposed to have cocoon seats and the AVOD that the new narrowbodies are going to be equipped with. As for the new Fiesta (Economy) Class, all seats are to planned to come with AVOD PTVs as well.

Philippine Airlines to order eight Airbus A340s or Boeing 777s soon

Philippine Airlines’ (PAL) president expects to decide before year-end on an order for eight long-range aircraft and is considering the Airbus A340-600 and Boeing 777-300ER.

Airline president Jaime Bautista plans to decide before year-end on an order for eight widebodies and is considering the A340-600 and 777-300ER, says a PAL spokesman in Manila, responding to reports quoting from Bautista.

The reports also quote Bautista as saying he wants first delivery of the widebodies in 2008 but the spokesman declines to confirm this and says 2008 “seems a bit too soon”.

PAL plans to finance such a purchase with the help of the relevant export credit agencies or it might opt to get the widebodies on operating lease, says the spokesman, citing remarks by Bautista.

PAL wants to add widebodies so it can launch new international services, particularly to North America.

The carrier’s widebody fleet currently consists of: eight Airbus A330s, four A340-300s and five Boeing 747-400s. PAL also still holds deferred orders for four 747-400s from a 1993 contract.

Bautista made his remarks earlier today at a press event promoting the introduction of the first of 13 Airbus A320-family aircraft PAL in December 2005 agreed to get.

PAL seeks widebodies as it plots international growth
By Leithen Francis
Philippine Airlines in discussions with Airbus and Boeing as it aims to boost services

Philippine Airlines (PAL) is in talks with Airbus and Boeing about adding widebody aircraft so it can expand.

The airline says the aircraft types being evaluated comprise the Airbus A340-600 and Boeing 777 and a deal is likely to be consummated within the next two years.

The carrier's widebody fleet currently consists of eight Airbus A330s, four A340-300s and five Boeing 747-400s. PAL also still holds deferred orders for four 747-400s from a 1993 contract.

It has issued a press statement saying it "plans to add five aircraft to its regional widebody fleet and three to its long-range fleet in the short to medium term". However, the airline tells Flight International that an internal document says the plan is to add five long-range aircraft and two medium-range aircraft by 2010.

PAL needs to add widebodies because "our fleet is already constrained just serving the routes we have now".

It also needs to have capacity to expand its international schedule. PAL president, Jaime Bautista, has said that the airline wants to increase its four-times-weekly Manila-Vancouver service to daily and increase its Manila-Nagoya service to five-times-weekly from thrice-weekly.

It is unable to increase services to Vancouver because there are no traffic rights available under the current Canada-Philippines air services agreement although Bautista is lobbying the Philippines government to "negotiate with Canada on that", says the airline.

China and India are also a top priority. PAL hopes to increase the frequency of its Manila-Beijing service to daily from four-times-weekly as early and next month. Services to Indian points such as Bangalore and Mumbai are also being considered.

PAL's move to evaluate new widebodies comes after it decided on its future narrowbody fleet and announced in December an order for nine Airbus A320-family aircraft and leases on another four.

‘NAIA 3 to open as soon as safety guaranteed’ -- Arroyo


By Lira Dalangin-Fernandez
INQ7.net
Last updated 11:15pm (Mla time) 10/20/2006


PRESIDENT Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo promised businessmen on Friday that the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3 (NAIA 3) will be opened as soon as its safety features pass muster.

Speaking at the 32nd Philippine Business Conference at the Manila Hotel, Arroyo said, "We will open NAIA as soon as the Federal Aviation Agency accepts its safety features."

Businessmen said they want the terminal operational by March next year.

In its resolution, the PBC urged the Department of Transportation and Communication to "fast-track the full operation of NAIA3."

After years of legal wrangling with NAIA3 builder Philippine International Air Terminals Corp., the government was issued a writ of possession of the facility after paying P3.2 billion as initial payment.

The opening of the terminal is seen to boost business and tourism in the country.

I read an article that said the seats in the new aircraft are made by RECARO.

Looking at the renderings provided by PAL, the Mabuhay (Business) Class seats for the new A320-family aircraft are the Recaro CL 4400.

Malaysia Airlines to double number of flights between Cebu and Kuala Lumpur
Friday, October 20, 2006

Malaysia's flag carrier announced its plan to increase its flights between Cebu and Kuala Lumpur, from twice to four times a week.

Transnational Aero Corp. (TAC) general manager Rene Philip Banzon said Malaysia Airlines is confident about its passenger share despite the growing number of budget airlines servicing Manila and other Asian countries, including Malaysia.

TAC is the Malaysia Airlines’ general sales agent in the Visayas and Mindanao.

Banzon said there are passengers who remain to be particular about getting in-flight services provided by Malaysia Airlines and other leading carriers.

“(Besides) low-cost carriers are mostly in Manila, and not in Cebu,” Banzon said during a press conference last Thursday at Table 7.

Malaysia Airlines will fly between Cebu and Kuala Lumpur every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday starting Oct. 30.

“We felt that we need to add the frequencies to improve our product and for our passengers to have more choices on the number of flights,” Banzon said.

He said daily flights from Cebu to Malaysia is “in the pipelines,” but it will depend on the profitability of the four-a-week flight service.

Also, Malaysia Airlines has not yet reached a formal understanding with Philippine Airlines regarding the former’s plan to have daily flights between Cebu and Kuala Lumpur, he said.

In principle

“This has only been approved in principle during talks held here with Philippine Airlines as they did not object but nothing formal as of the meantime,” he said.

Malaysia Airlines expects an increase in both inbound and outbound traffic with its decision to have more flights between Cebu and Kuala Lumpur.

“Around 70 percent of the passenger volume will be a combination of immigrants, those who want leisure trips, business trips and overseas Filipino workers,” Banzon said.

As Cebu is positioning itself as a shopping hub and tourism destination in Asia, Banzon said the company is targeting traffic coming from Europe, Australia and Malaysia.

Malaysia Airlines first took off from Cebu in Oct. 29, 1993, operating a B737-300 series twice a week.

According to Banzon, Malaysia Airlines reported a 600-percent growth in sales revenues since 1998. The carrier flies to over 100 destinations in six continents.

Yup... on all the 20 new A320/A319s to come in, including the one A319 that was delivered recently. Only on Mabuhay (Business) Class for the narrowbodies though - or that's what PAL said. For the long-haul cabin enhancement, both Mabuhay and Fiesta classes will have AVOD-PTVs. I wonder if PAL will still refurbish their existing 5 B747s and 4 A340s, after they said they are going to buy 8 new B777/A346. some reports have said these will be added to the fleet, while others have said they will replace the current 9 widebodies and reduce the future widebodied fleet to only the 8 new aircraft.

^ I think the new widebodies will be an addition to the fleet since it has already been established that they need more planes to service new and existing routes.

Metro Manila's Future Main and Current LCC airport

The Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (DMIA) will be a premier gateway of the Philippines in the next 10 years.It is one of the biggest avaiation complexes in Asia with its two 3.2 kilometer parallel runways that will be extended to 4 kilometers to accomodate new geration wide-bodied aircraft. An Executive Order by the National Government has designated it as the Philippines future premier gateway site. It is also designed as a logistic hub where the Airport Complex will be key to prompt delivery of goods and services to major destinations in the Asia-Pacific region and the whole world. DMIA is certified by International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) with ratings of Category I for Precision Approach Runway and Category IX for the Emergency Services. It is well equipped with Instrument Landing System, Navigational Aids, Meteorological Equipment, Complete Airfield Lighting System.

It's also an alternative landing strip for the US Space Shuttle!

CLARK, PAMPANGA - Clark International Airport Corp (CIAC)will spend P18.5 billion to make the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (DMIA) a world-class logistics hub and prepare it to become the Philippines’ premier international gateway by 2010.

CIAC president and chief executive officer Victor Jose I. Luciano said construction would take three years, beginning late 2007.

By 2010, the Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila will have reached full capacity and international flights will be transferred to DMIA.

Of the P18.5 billion, P13.56 billion will be used for civil and architectural works, P125.54 million for navigational systems, P55.96 million for a meteorological facility, P704.82 million for airport lighting, P3.99 billion for airport utilities and P75.62 million for airport maintenance equipment.

As part of civil and architectural works, CIAC will build a larger passenger terminal (Terminal 2) next to the existing terminal for P2 billion.

The airport is designed to handle up to five million passenger a year, or twice the traffic expected by 2011. Cargo volume is seen to triple to 450,000 tons.

Terminal 2 will be patterned after budget carrier terminals in Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.

“We can replicate it here because Clark’s passenger traffic comes mostly from low-cost carriers," Luciano said.

There is no problem attracting more airlines to Clark because the aeronautical, customs, and quarantine fees they pay at DMIA are almost “30 percent lower than Naia," said the executive.

Several budget carriers now fly to Clark, including the Philippines’ Cebu Pacific, Tiger Airways of Singapore and Air Asia of Malaysia. CIAC is in talks with Thai Air Asia, Viva Macau and Tair Airways of Saudi Arabia to do the same.

A large Spanish construction company with interests in European airports is among those interested to help develop the airport.

Development Bank of the Philippines “has expressed interest in funding some of the developments of the airport" and could help raise counterpart funds for any official development assistance on the project, Luciano said.

Eventually, CIAC will be supplanted by a bigger agency, the Clark International Airport Authority, which will oversee the operations at the international gateway.
