Bangkok Airways deflates LCC rumours

Published: 9/11/2012 at 12:00 AM Newspaper section: Business

Branching out into the low-cost carrier (LCC) segment is not on Bangkok Airways' radar screen as it intends to consolidate its efforts in growing its mainstream premium airline operation.

President Puttipong Prasarttong-Osoth ruled out reports suggesting the carrier was going to join the LCC fray as he reaffirmed a divestiture to end the airline's 44-year private ownership.

He made it clear that the proceeds from the initial public offering (IPO) planned next year, expected to amount to 10 billion baht, are largely meant to support Bangkok Airways' growth plan including building a new hangar, fleet expansion and IT upgrade.

"[LCC] is a different model and we would rather concentrate on what we have been doing well over the past 44 years _ being a full-service airline," Mr Puttipong said.

It doesn't want to pursue setting up an LCC sibling with the goal of blocking other LCC players from entering the market, similar to the strategy of other legacy airlines to protect market share.

"If we wanted an LCC, we must do it full-scale and full steam ahead," he noted.


Puttipong: ‘We are unlikely to engage’
Mr Puttipong shrugged off suggestions that the airline may lose business opportunities without an LCC.

Earlier press reports quoted Mr Puttipong suggesting that Bangkok Airways, marketed as a "boutique airline", was pondering the feasibility of an LCC so as not to lose out on opportunities in that fast-growing airline segment.

"We're just looking at the LCC market and development, but we are unlikely to engage," he noted, branding those reports as a misunderstanding.

Mr Puttipong, a commercial airline pilot with a rank of captain, expects the IPO in either April or May next year. The size of the offering, the share price, and the scope of the allotment to various subscribers are still being worked out by its financial adviser, Bualuang Securities Plc. There are three possible sets of offerings: 20%, 25% and 30%.

Some 1-2 billion baht of the proceeds will be used to build a hangar at Suvarnabhumi from scratch, buy a number of new aircraft, lease other aircraft, and improve its information technology system, said Mr Puttipong.

The airline is looking to replace its older aircraft and grow its fleet to 35 units in the future from 19 comprising eight ATR 72 turboprops, three Airbus 320s and eight Airbus 319s.

It has two new-generation single-aisle jets on its shopping list _ the Boeing 737 MAX and Airbus 320neo _ but no wide-body aircraft have caught its eye.

Having delayed an IPO for several years, Bangkok Airways decided in March to take the plunge.

The airline wants to grow its equity base and expand for the future in a way that the existing family-owned structure does not accommodate.

More than 80% of Bangkok Airways is owned by Dr Prasert Prasarttong-Osoth, who founded the airline and has a substantial interest in Bangkok Dusit Medical Services, Thailand's largest private hospital group. He is Mr Puttipong's father.

THAI Smile Air to separate from flag carrier THAI

BANGKOK, Nov 16 – THAI Smile Air, a budget airline operated by Thai Airways International (THAI), will be split off as a sister company of the national flag carrier, according to a resolution by the THAI board of directors.

Board chairman Ampon Kittiampon said today that THAI president Sorachak Kasemsuwan has been instructed to map out a four-point business strategy, including Thai Smile Air status as a sister company, to be submitted to the board of directors on Dec 15. The board positioned THAI as a premium airline while Thai Smile Air will provide multi-point regional service and Nok Air, another sister company, is a quality low-cost air carrier.

Mr Ampon said the four-point strategy which must be developed involves the THAI kitchen, ground services, air cargo and expense control, especially on fuel.

At its meeting today, the board was informed of the THAI performance in October which saw 1.71 million passengers, an 8 per cent increase from the previous month, and an 11 per cent increase from the same period last year. Performance in the second quarter was Bt 3 billion below target while expenses were Bt 1 billion higher.

Mr Sorachak, however, painted a positive projection for an 11-12 per cent revenue growth next year when THAI will have 17 more aircraft. The THAI president predicted a total revenue of Bt 223-224 billion next year. He also targeted increasing sales volume by 15 per cent from online ticketing. (MCOT online news)

Thailand to allow major foreign ownership in aviation sector

BANGKOK, Nov 21 – Thailand’s obsolete Air Navigation Act, enforced since 1954, will be amended to allow up to 70 per cent foreign ownership in aviation-related businesses, according to Transport Minister Chatchart Sitthiphan.

He said a draft of the new Air Navigation Act, approved yesterday by the cabinet and set for parliamentary deliberation, allows foreign companies to engage in aircraft manufacturing, maintenance and spare parts distribution.

A Thai-based company can accept up to 70 per cent foreign ownership in accord with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) agreement on air navigation, and foreign ownership may be increased to 100 per cent if it involves aviation business using advanced technology.

The present Air Navigation Act came into law in 1954 setting maximum foreign ownership at 49 per cent, but the act has failed to attract foreign investment to Thailand, Mr Chatchart said. He called for changing the law in accord with the coming ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) in 2015. The government will encourage the private sector to set up an aviation industrial estate to prepare Thailand as a logistics hub for the region, he said, adding that the aviation industry will boost Thailand’s economic opportunities after the country’s success in the automotive manufacturing industry.

The transport minister said he invited Rolls-Royce, world leader in spare parts manufacturing and aircraft maintenance, to invest in Thailand during his recent trip to the United Kingdom. He said Rolls-Royce had reservations about the Thai Board of Investment (BoI) requirement that foreign investors disclose some confidential technological information, adding that he would discuss the issue with the BoI.
