Airlines add flights to London
(China Daily/WCARN.com, June 27)


Quote:
China's major airlines are grabbing their own share of the expected influx to London for the Olympic Games, adding new routes to the UK capital in the run up to the event.
But travel experts are warning that demand for tickets is huge, and prices are already increasing rapidly as the opening ceremony approaches.


The third London Olympics starts on July 27 and runs until Aug 12, bringing thousands of competitors and visitors to the city.


With 30 days to go, a recent survey of more than 365,000 taxi passengers in China's five biggest cities, by the Chinese taxi media company Touchmedia, revealed that 12 percent of the respondents said they plan to fly to London for the Games.


Other statistics from Forward Data SL, the tourist industry data specialist, showed an expected 13 percent rise in the number of arrivals to London during the event, comparing with the same period last year.


The greatest number of visitors will arrive on the day before the opening ceremony, with a 72 percent increase comparing with the previous year, and according to the figures, Asia will be the third largest source of visitors.


Wu Xiaoming, general manager for Air China Ltd in the UK, said that it had added a new route between Beijing and London Gatwick Airport, the UK's second-largest airport, to meet the added demand, on top of the 11 flights it already operates weekly to the city's Heathrow Airport.


China Southern Airlines Co Ltd has just added its first route from Guangzhou to London from June 6, to coincide with the Olympic rush.
It reports flights to the UK capital since have been 90 percent full, against a normal average of 80 percent to the UK.


Both Air China and China Southern use A330-200 aircraft on their new routes, which can carry more than 200 passengers, and the former already says it is considering putting larger aircraft on its London routes between July 27 and Aug. 12, if demand continues at current high levels.

Chinese passengers have several route choices to London, including the three main Chinese airlines and some European airlines, if they want to fly direct. But passengers are being warned that prices will rise as the event nears, as well as this being a peak period anyway for traveling to Europe.


Ticket prices from Beijing to London in July are reported to be 43 percent higher than in May, and from other major cities including Shanghai and Guangzhou as much as 50 percent higher, according to Ctrip.com International Ltd, the travel information website.


Willie Walsh, chief executive of International Airlines Group, the parent company of British Airways, has confirmed that his airlines doesn't offer any discounts during the annual peak summer season, but added that unlike Chinese airlines, British Airways does not expect to earn more money throughout the Olympics, because it doesn't plan to open any new routes during the period.

BA's rival Virgin Atlantic Airways Ltd, also based in the UK, which runs a route between Shanghai and London, is also refusing to add any flights during the Olympics.

Julie Southern, its chief commercial officer, told the Sydney Morning Herald, that in fact the airlines expects to lose money, with more British people choosing to stay at home this summer.

Airshow: COMAC signs pact with British Airways
(WCARN.com/The Wall Street Journal, July 9)


Quote:
British Airways has expanded a pact with the manufacturer of China's planned new jetliner to include the UK carrier's parent, providing a vote of confidence for the program despite speculation that it's slipping behind schedule.

International Consolidated Airlines Group SA signed a memorandum of understanding with Commercial Aircraft of China Ltd., or COMAC, the state enterprise leading the development of the C919 jet, which is being touted as a low-cost rival to established planes made by Airbus and Boeing Co.


British Airways agreed in 2010 to cooperate with COMAC on the C919's development, and the new deal extends that to include the UK carrier's merger partner, Iberia.

So what does that mean? Will BA help COMAC with parts for C919 and help them pass EASA safety inspections?

Even then I highly doubt IAG buys them for their main fleet.

It's purely technical/technological cooperation... I think some posters answered you questions concerning that...


back to the news:

IAG "Carefully Considers" the C919
(WCARN.com/ATW Daily News, July 16)

Quote:
The International Airlines Group (IAG) signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Commercial Aircraft Corp. of China (COMAC) to "carefully consider" ordering the Chinese-produced C919 at the Farnborough Airshow.

According to the MOU, COMAC will set up a joint working group with IAG to conduct cooperation in the fields of technology and operation requirements, regulations, financing and client and product services for the C919.

According to a COMAC insider, IAG is the first non-Chinese airline to consider ordering the 150-seat aircraft. Last year, Ryanair signed a similar MOU with COMAC.

Axed BA Crew Back
(The Sun/WCARN.com, July 17)

Quote:
Five cabin crew axed by British Airways at the height of the bitter strike two years ago are back at work. BA last night confirmed a number of former rebels -- fired for criticising the business -- had been let off.

In a statement, the airline said: "British Airways has made the decision to allow some individuals the opportunity to return to work." BA have also reinstated staff discounts and loyalty bonuses for strikers.

BA has announced that it will cancel even more BMI routes later this year.
Quote:
Bmi services to Dammam will cease on September 16, with routes to Bishkek and Khartoum stopping on October 1, Yerevan on October 13, and Amritsar and Casablanca on October 28

Bmi services to Cairo, Moscow, Riyadh and Jeddah will cease, although BA’s flights to these destinations will continue.

Not surprised. BA will take those slots and use it on more profitable routes, as they are already doing so adding another flight to Tel Aviv.

Interesting times ahead for Iberia. I hope Willie Walsh gets the backing he needs. Though, strikes look inevitable as the unions 'negotiate' the best deal they can get.

Doubt it - it's copyright to a identity independent of IAG. Any new livery will be much publicised.
