A380 makes first landing in Malta

Hundreds of people occupied every vantage point around the airport this afternoon to watch the first landing in Malta of an A380, the biggest passenger aircraft in the world.

The double-decker aircraft, operated by Lufthansa, impressed not only by its size, but also because it is very quiet.

It is here for a brief stopover in the course of an extended training flight that will also take the world’s biggest airliner to Warsaw and Istanbul.

Its pilot delighted those watching by performing a touch and go - landing and taking off again before landing at 3.18 p.m. for its 90 minute stop.

It made another touch and go on its departure and wagged its wings twice in a final salute.

The A380 flew for the first time in late April 2005 and made the first commercial flight in October 2007.

Seating 526 passengers in Lufthansa’s three-class configuration, the A380 can carry about 60 per cent more passengers than the Boeing 747-400 now in service. It can take 35 million ping pong balls. Four million parts and 500 kilometres of electric wiring were used in the building of the aircraft.

The aircraft, which is just over 24 metres high and 73 metres long with a wingspan of just under 80 metres, takes on every flight 300 trolleys and boxes and 40,000 catering related items.

China Southern Airlines' first Airbus A380 plane to be delivered in H2

BEIJING, Mar. 24 (Xinhua) – The first Airbus A380 plane ordered by China's largest airline firm by fleet size China Southern Airlines (ZNH.NYSE; 00155.HK; 600029.SH) will be delivered in the second half of this year, said Tan Wangeng, general manager with the airline firm.

China Southern plans to arrange the Airbus A380 plane on international routes in the Beijing market, said Tan. Boeing 787 planes will fly on international routes newly opened by China Southern, according to Tan.

China Southern at present is China's first domestic airline firm that ordered A380 planes, at five units.

Airbus A380 plane is so far the world's largest passenger plane with 550 seats.

Tan meanwhile disclosed that the Boeing 787 Dreamliner is likely to be delivered by the end of this year.

Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd.’s John Slosar will face rising competition in China, higher fuel prices and a slowdown in earthquake-hit Japan when he takes over as chief executive officer this week.

Slosar, 54, steps into the top job at Asia’s second-largest listed carrier by sales as a nuclear crisis saps travel demand in Japan, a market accounting for about 8 percent of Hong Kong- based Cathay’s revenue, according to a Daiwa Institute of Research estimate. Fuel prices have also surged 27 percent this year in Singapore trading as protests in the Middle East and North Africa stoke concerns about oil supplies.

“It will be very hard for Cathay to repeat last year’s profit,” said Julius Yeo, a Singapore-based analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “Slosar has very big shoes to fill.”

Slosar will replace Tony Tyler who is leaving Cathay on March 31 after almost four years as CEO to become head of the International Air Transport Association, an industry group. Last year, Tyler almost tripled net income to HK$14 billion ($1.8 billion) because of a rebound in demand following the end of the global recession and the sales of stakes in affiliates. Net income this year may fall to HK$9.3 billion based on the average of 17 analyst estimates compiled by Bloomberg.

Slosar will get an annual salary and allowances of HK$5.5 million ($710,000), plus bonuses and housing, according to a March 2 statement. He has worked for Swire Group, Cathay’s parent, since 1980, including being the airline’s chief operating officer since July 2007.
Tokyo Travel

Travel to Tokyo has plunged since a March 11 earthquake crippled a nuclear-power plant north of the city, triggering fears about leaking radiation. The number of foreigners arriving at the capital’s Narita International Airport, Japan’s main international gateway, from overseas plunged 60 percent from a year earlier through March 22, according to the Immigration Bureau of Japan. The nation accounts for 6.5 percent of global air traffic and 10 percent of sales, according to IATA.

“Inevitably, we are seeing softer demand to Tokyo,” Carolyn Leung, a Cathay spokeswoman, said in a March 25 e-mailed reply to questions. “We expect several months of weakness with a recovery toward the summer, but there are still a lot of variables.”

Cathay, also the world’s largest international air-cargo carrier, closed little changed at HK$18.36 in Hong Kong trading today. It has dropped 14 percent this year, the third-worst performance in the Hang Seng Index. Last year, it was the fourth-best, rising 48 percent.

The stock has dropped 5.7 percent since Tyler became CEO in July 2007, outperforming Singapore Airlines Ltd.’s 24 percent decline and the Bloomberg Asia Pacific Airlines Index’s 16 percent fall. Tyler saw Cathay through the global recession, spent billions of dollars on Airbus SAS and Boeing Co. planes and boosted ties with affiliate Air China Ltd., the nation’s largest international carrier.
China Demand

Cathay plans to increase both cargo and passenger capacity about 10 percent this year as a rebounding global economy and growth in China spurs demand. The airline is starting flights to Abu Dhabi and Chicago, and it is due to take delivery of 15 new planes this year, including six freighters.

“The fundamental growth picture of Greater China and the integration of China with the rest of the world is going to carry on,” Slosar said in a March 10 interview. “We’re investing behind that.”

The airline announced 27 plane orders and leases on March 9, raising its backlog to 91 new aircraft for delivery by 2019. The carrier had a group fleet of 166 as of March 25, it said by e- mail. It plans to retire its 21 Boeing 747-400s and 11 Airbus SAS A340-300s by decade’s end.

China likely will be the world’s fastest-growing market for international air travel through 2014, according to IATA. Cathay last year boosted passenger numbers 9 percent to 26.8 million.
Business-Class Refit

The airline is spending HK$1 billion on new business-class cabins and services as Emirates Airline and Singapore Air woo passengers with the double-decker Airbus A380 and U.S. carriers add China flights.

Cathay also faces more competition from within China and Hong Kong, where it gets about half of sales. Hong Kong Airlines Ltd., backed by the government of China’s Hainan province, agreed this month to buy 38 twin-aisle Boeing planes to boost its network.
Mainland Carriers

The three biggest mainland carriers -- Air China Ltd., China Southern Airlines Co. and China Eastern Airlines Corp. -- also are expanding. Beijing-based Air China, the world’s largest carrier by market value, plans to boost its group fleet to more than 700 planes by 2015 from about 400, Chairman Kong Dong said earlier this month.

“China is a growing market but there’s huge competition,” Daiwa’s Kelvin Lau said. “The three Chinese airlines have big fleets and huge capacities, much larger than Cathay. In the future, more travelers may choose to fly via Shanghai or Beijing.”

Cathay is cooperating with Air China to tap mainland sales, through steps including codeshares. The two, which own stakes in each other, are also forming a cargo venture that will give Cathay access to freight hubs in Shanghai and Beijing.

Cargo generates about 30 percent of Cathay’s sales, helped by exports from China’s Pearl River Delta neighboring Hong Kong. The rising number of mainland millionaires is also boosting inbound shipments of luxury goods and fresh seafood.

Slosar, who studied at Columbia University in New York and the University of Cambridge, has worked for Swire Group’s aviation division in Hong Kong, the U.S. and Thailand. He became managing director of plane-maintenance unit Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering Co. in 1996. Two years later, he was appointed managing director of Swire’s beverages arm, before becoming Cathay’s COO in 2007.

“He tends to be bullish and optimistic,” Lau said. “He’s very enthusiastic and would be a good leader.”
