Cathay Pacific not keen to invest in Indian carriers

New Delhi, Oct 17 (IANS) Hong Kong-based Cathay Pacific Airways Wednesday said though the passenger carrier is buoyed by the traffic potential out of India, it is not interested in infusing capital into any domestic Indian carrier now.

"Currently we are not looking at investments into any of the Indian airlines. Our business model is not allowing for the same," Tom Wright, general manager, South Asia, Middle East and Africa, told IANS.

Wright was speaking at the sidelines of the airline's announcement of new business class cabin and its new premium economy class cabin on Delhi-Hong Kong route from Oct 29.

The airline's current stand on FDI is no different from many other international majors like Emirates, British Airways, Lufthansa, Virgin Atlantic and Etihad Airways who have said they are not keen on investing in India at the moment.

These carriers so far were not allowed to directly invest in Indian carriers for security reasons, although 49 percent foreign direct investment (FDI) by non-airline players was allowed. The government last month allowed foreign airlines to invest up to 49 percent in domestic carriers.

The airline said the increase in airport charges at the national capital's Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport is detrimental to the growth of passenger traffic and hard on airlines struggling to maintain their margins.

"Such high airport charges are not with a long term view. Indian airports are some of the most expensive in the world and this is hard on us to grow passenger traffic and our margins."

On April 24, 2012 Airports Economic Regulatory Authority (AERA) had permitted DIAL to increase airport charges at IGI Airport like landing, parking, housing, fuel throughput and aeronautical charges by a whopping 345 percent for next two years.

DIAL was also allowed the airport operator to collect Rs.200 from departing domestic and Rs.1,300 from departing international passengers. The charges became applicable in May.

Meanwhile, the airline said that it was buoyed about the passenger traffic growth from India to several destinations like Hong Kong, China, South Korea and Japan in the Far East and other places in Southeast Asia.

"There is a tremendous potential for passenger traffic growth from India. We are seeing growth in all segments like business and leisure traffic. We are also looking at expanding our services to other Indian cities like Kolkata and Hyderabad soon," Wright said.

The company will be flying to Kolkata with four flights per week from Nov 2, 2012. The service will be operated from its subsidiary Dragonair.

The airline will enter the Hyderabad sector on its own with four flights per week from Dec 2.

The airline is also said to be looking at setting up its own lounge in New Delhi, as none of its "oneworld" inter-airline alliance partners has such a facility in the country.

"We are looking at setting up the lounge in India. This may come up in New Delhi," he said.

Looks like mixed news for CX, especially with the downfall of Kingfisher. But I think that CX could expand even further into India through KA since it's a huge market, with cities of varying backgrounds.

Under the current air services agreement between Hong Kong and India, there are severe restrictions on how many flights can be run between the two places. Hence, adding a new destination, such as Calcutta, came as a surprise.

Wow, CX serving the Philippines for more than six decades nonstop? Now that is serious dedication indeed. I remember riding CX between MNL and HKG, and I found it to be all right since I was like 9 at the time and had little idea about airplanes and airports at the time.

But 66 years of nonstop service shows how committed CX is to the Philippines. Congratulations on that milestone!

Cathay cabin crew out to land 5pc rise
The Standard
Friday, November 09, 2012

Cathay Pacific flight attendants are demanding a 5percent pay rise to help offset inflation.

The union representing them said it has taken into account the company's performance before making the demand.

Talks between the union and management are due to begin today.

"We hope the company will respect our collective bargaining rights," a union spokesman said.

The union has studied the responses of 600 of its 6,800 members, and 75percent of all flight attendants.

Cathay Pacific Airways Flight Attendants Union chairwoman Dora Lai Yuk-sim said the rise in the consumer price index in September was 4.3percent, so the 5percent call is reasonable.

Flight attendants received a 5percent increase last year.

According to the union, the monthly salaries of flight attendants range from HK$21,000 to HK$23,000 while those paid by the hour receive between HK$13,000 and HK$15,000.

The union insists the package is affordable for the company even though it reported a HK$935 million loss in the first half of the year, compared with a HK$2.8 billion profit for the same period last year.

It also demands a review of the work schedule and cancellation of a pilot scheme that allows overseas cabin crews to fly routes reserved for Hong Kong-based staff.

Lai said rest time at destinations has been cut in half and she fears this may affect flight safety.

"We used to have two full days to rest after landing in Rome but now we only have one full day before taking off for another 16 hours."

She said allowances have also been cut - with those landing in Rome getting only 150 euros (HK$1,480) instead of 300 euros.

The union said the "Cross Base Flying Trial" scheme is also one of its members' main concerns.

The scheme allows overseas flight attendants to fly routes from their homes to Hong Kong and then to other destinations without working visas.

"In the long term, the scheme will affect the promotion opportunities and income of local cabin crews," Lai said.

Meanwhile, a new pay trend survey has backed forecasts by other consultants that Hong Kong workers stand to receive a pay increase of more than 4percent next year.

The latest survey was carried out by ECA International and involved 115 companies.

Cathay Pacific expands cargo network with new freighter service to Colombo
12 November 2012
Press Release

Cathay Pacific Airways today announced the launch of a new weekly freighter service to Colombo in Sri Lanka commencing 2 December 2012 (subject to government approval). The new service will expand Cathay Pacific’s cargo presence in the South Asia region and give shippers in Sri Lanka greater choice and flexibility for connecting to the airline’s international cargo network through the Hong Kong hub.

The Colombo freighter service will be operated on a Hong Kong-Chennai-Colombo-Hong Kong routing every Sunday using one of Cathay Pacific’s Boeing 747-400F aircraft and will cater for the huge volumes of garments and perishables bound for the North America, Europe and Asia markets. The airline will become the only carrier to operate the 747-400F out of Colombo, offering more cargo space to meet growing demand.

Cathay Pacific Director Cargo Nick Rhodes said: “Sri Lanka is home to major garment and footwear manufacturers producing goods for well-known international brands, and also has sizeable exports of perishable products including tuna and lobster. We already carry sizeable quantities of freight in the bellies of our daily passenger flights to and from Colombo, but the new freighter service will enable us to better meet the demand for Sri Lankan products in major markets around the world.”

Cathay Pacific is committed to expanding its freighter network and has also added services to Zhengzhou and Hyderabad this year. The airline recently took delivery of its eighth Boeing 747-8F freighter aircraft, with two more to be delivered in 2013.

Falling cabin pressure forces Cathay landing
The Standard
Monday, November 19, 2012

A Cathay Pacific flight carrying 288 passengers and 18 crew from Hong Kong to Los Angeles made an emergency landing in Anchorage after losing cabin pressure.

A suspected valve malfunction forced CX882, which left on Thursday afternoon, to make an emergency landing in Alaska on Friday morning (HK time) "as a result of gradual depressurization," the airline said yesterday.

Cathay dispatched a special flight to pick up the passengers.

It left Anchorage on Friday (US time) and arrived in Los Angeles at 3.47pm the same day.

A preliminary probe by Cathay showed that the likely cause was a malfunctioning valve in the air system of the Boeing 777-300ER.

Oxygen masks were dropped and no passengers were hurt in the incident.

"The captain initiated a diversion to Anchorage and oxygen masks were deployed in accordance with standard operating procedures," Cathay said.

The company will conduct an internal investigation into the incident and an initial notification has already been sent to those at the Civil Aviation Department.

It added that all passengers were given hotel accommodation and meals in Anchorage.

A spokeswoman for the department said Cathay has already informed it of the incident, adding that the airline will submit a detailed report.

Former civil aviation director Peter Lok Kung-nam said: "There are many factors that can lead to depressurization in the cabin, including valve malfunction."

Lok added: "In a worst-case scenario, passengers may lose consciousness because of pressure drop in the cabin.

"Pilots will base [their decision] on standard aviation operating procedures to drop oxygen masks for passengers for breathing."

In November 2010, a Cathay Boeing 747 made an emergency landing in Kazakhstan, central Asia, after a cabin pressurization fault.

Dragonair Strengthens Mainland China Network with New Service To Wenzhou
14 November 2012
Press Release

(Hong Kong) Dragonair today announced it will launch a new daily service to Wenzhou, commencing on 25 January 2013 (subject to government approval). Wenzhou will become Dragonair’s 22nd destination in Mainland China, further strengthening the airline’s extensive network in its core market. The new daily service will be operated by A320 aircraft.

Wenzhou, located in Zhejiang Province in the south-east of the country, has become an economic powerhouse in the region. The city is a well-developed manufacturing and commercial hub, and its people are well-known for their entrepreneurial drive. Many Wenzhou citizens have emigrated to Europe and North America over the years, helping to strengthen the city’s ties with economies in the West.

“We are very excited to serve the city of Wenzhou, whose vibrant commercial activities and strong overseas ties provide great market potential for both the business and leisure travel segments,” said Patrick Yeung, Dragonair Chief Executive Officer.

“Our latest destination will reinforce our commitment to developing our core Mainland China market and at the same time boost Hong Kong’s role as a major international aviation hub. The Wenzhou service will provide passengers with more choice and greater convenience when travelling between Hong Kong and Wenzhou, and seamless connections onto the extensive global network offered by Dragonair’s sister airline, Cathay Pacific.”

Dragonair has resumed or launched eight destinations in 2012. In addition to Wenzhou, the airline has already announced that it will start new services to Zhengzhou and Yangon in January 2013. Following the launch of Wenzhou, Dragonair’s network will number 44 destinations in the region.

Cathay Pacific releases combined traffic figures for October 2012
15 November 2012
Press Release

Cathay Pacific Airways today released combined Cathay Pacific and Dragonair traffic figures for October 2012 that show a small increase in passenger numbers compared to the same month last year, albeit with a drop in load factor. Cargo and mail tonnage showed a year-on-year increase for the second month in a row.

Cathay Pacific and Dragonair carried a total of 2,405,027 passengers in October – an increase of 1.0% compared to the same month last year. The passenger load factor fell by 1.8 percentage points to 78.3%, while capacity, measured in available seat kilometres (ASKs), dropped by 3.1%. For the year to date, passenger numbers have risen by 5.4% compared to a capacity increase of 4.1%.

The two airlines carried 138,608 tonnes of cargo and mail last month, an increase of 1.9% compared to October 2011. The cargo and mail load factor fell by 2.2 percentage points to 64.0%. Capacity, measured in available cargo/mail tonne kilometres, rose by 0.5%, while cargo and mail tonne kilometres flown dropped by 2.8%. For the year to date, tonnage has declined by 7.3% against a capacity drop of 4.3%.

Cathay Pacific General Manager Revenue Management James Tong said: “Our capacity in October showed a decline for the second consecutive month as a result of the trimming of a number of long-haul frequencies introduced in September. We continue to strengthen our regional services, however, with flights to Haikou recommencing in late October. The pick-up in demand in premium cabins was slow last month. Passenger demand in the Economy cabin held up reasonably well for long-haul flights but was soft in the region. Yield remained under pressure in a highly competitive environment.”

Cathay Pacific General Manager Cargo Sales & Marketing James Woodrow said: “We saw a small uptick in demand in October, driven by the launch of a number of new hi-tech consumer products out of key manufacturing centres in the region. Following a lull in demand over the long National Day holiday period in Mainland China, we were therefore able to operate close to a full freighter schedule by the end of the month. However, in the longer term, demand from Asia to Europe will continue to be affected by the economic fragility in a number of euro-zone countries.”

Dragonair may soon start flying daily from Kolkata to Hong Kong
The Hindu
Nov 22
Excerpt

Dragonair is likely to launch daily flights between Kolkata and Hong Kong in about six months’ time.

“We would love to increase that (frequency of flights between Kolkata and Hong Kong) But, I think, we will do it once we have the opportunity. Normally, for new operations we look at six months. We are hopeful of starting services from Kolkata before too long,” Patrick Yeung, Chief Executive Officer of Dragonair told Business Line on Thursday.

The Hong Kong headquartered carrier — a sister concern of Cathay Pacific Airways — recently launched four days a week direct flights between Kolkata and Hong Kong.
