Hainan Airlines Group, Shenzhen Airport Joined Hands

SHENZHEN, July 28, SinoCast -- Shenzhen Airport Co., Ltd. (SZSE: 000089) today announces that the government of Shenzhen, Guangdong Province, south China, has inked a strategic cooperation framework agreement with Hainan Airlines Group (HNA), one of the nation's leading air carriers.

The city wants to quicken its steps toward the regional aviation development, by virtue of this collaboration. Meanwhile, HNA is expected to further expand its aviation business and related industries in Shenzhen in the near future.

With a strong support of the local government, Shenzhen Airport (Group) Co., Ltd., parent of the Shenzhen-listed company, is scheduled to form a partnership with HNA. Both parties will commit themselves to creating the Shenzhen Airport as a regional aviation hub and the important development base of HNA, based on the fast social and economic growth locally.

In order to invest more in air transport capacity and aviation network expansion from now on, HNA has put its Shenzhen-located branch into operation. In particular, it promises to give the priority to introduction of the air buses.

Meanwhile, the aviation tycoon intends to move the Mainland China headquarters of its holding companies, Deer Air Co., Ltd., Hong Kong Airlines Ltd., and Hong Kong Express Airways Ltd., to Shenzhen. Yangtze River Express Airlines Co., Ltd., another holding company of HNA, is encouraged to build a branch in Shenzhen, for the sake of development of more domestic and overseas freight routes.

In addition to foundation of an aviation production base, HNA will cast its eye to the independent FBO (fixed base operator) business cooperation with Shenzhen Airlines, said people with the direct knowledge of the matter.

Ultimately, HNA and the Shenzhen government will strive to more than double the number of aircrafts stay at Shenzhen over night from May 2009, and the city's total air transport capacity is predicted to exceed 50 units five years after establishment of the second runway of the Shenzhen Airport.

HNA is busy regrouping a private shipbuilder now. Several days ago, its newly-built subsidiary, Grand China Logistics Holding (Group) Co., Ltd., and Shanghai Zhouji (Group) entered into an agreement upon equity transfer of Zhoushan Jinhaiwan Shipyard Co., Ltd.

This time, a 50% stake in Jinhaiwan Shipyard valued at CNY 6.4 billion will be transferred to Grand China Logistics Holding, revealed the buyer's chairman and president, Jia Hongxiang. In addition, Grand China Logistics Holding and Shanghai Zhouji (Group) inked the building and purchase contract about 30 bulk cargo ships.

The deal is predicted to help Hainan Airlines Group further extend its industry chain. Meanwhile, the supporting logistics equipment introduction of Jinhaiwan Shipyard will drive Grand China Logistics Holding's integrated logistics development.

MAS to widen reach in China via new partner
23 October 2009
Business Times

SHANGHAI: Malaysia Airline System Bhd (MAS) has signed a deal to cooperate with China's fourth largest airline Hainan Airlines Group (HNA) to grow its cargo arm's network in China, have a wider presence worldwide and increase its market share.

"Through this partnership we are looking to provide our passengers and cargo with improved connectivity to domestic destinations in China and increase feeder traffic from the Chinese domestic points to our international services," MAS managing director Tengku Datuk Azmil Zahruddin said in his speech to attendees at the signing ceremony between HNA Group and MAS here yesterday.

HNA Group is a large corporation with the air transportation a core business and covering other industries of tourism and service, airport management, logistics, hotel management, retailing, finance and other related businesses.

The group has assets valued at RMB150 billion, with a revenue forecast of between RMB35 billion and RMB50 billion by the end of the year.

Azmil said while this was not the group's first partnership in China, it would be able to cater to the many routes that the current partnership did not service.

In 2008, MAS signed a code-share agreement with China Southern Airline for two points in China, namely Beijing and Guangzhou.

"Basically we have come up with a framework for cooperation and now we must sit down and look at each other's network, see how we can integrate the network in terms of belly space and joint services on freighters," Malaysia Airlines Cargo Sdn Bhd managing director Shahari Sulaiman said.

For example, Azmil said, the two companies would look to integrate network services so as to not overlap each other, enabling the two organisations to maximise cargo feeder traffic for both airlines without adding resources.

Currently the HNA group has 15 airlines under its wing, with two freighter businesses, namely Hong Kong Express and Yangtze Express. It has an aircraft fleet of 200 overall, including its freighters.

"This is the type of crisis that makes everybody think about how they can maximise their resources and expand wisely," HNA Group director and HNA Industrial Co Ltd executive chairman Tan Xiangdong said.

Hong Kong Express owns three Boeing 737 freighters, while Yangtze Express owns four 747-400s. Its freighter operations alone carries about 1,300 tonnes of cargo a month.

There are also plans to take in four more 747-400Fs in the next few years. "The point is, the cargo is not the only area we can collaborate in, there is potential for us to cooperate in other areas as well, considering the broad spectrum of sectors that the group is in," Azmil said.

HK Airlines and HK Express Launch International B2B Online Ticketing Website
Corporate Press Release
30 Oct 2009

Hong Kong, 29 October 2009 – Hong Kong Airlines and Hong Kong Express have become the first airlines in the Greater China region to launch an international B2B online ticketing platform. This innovative effort, developed jointly with TravelSky Technology Limited, reflects the airlines’ pioneering spirit and their commitment to excellence.

It is important that companies evolve with the times. Hong Kong Airlines and Hong Kong Express recognise this and invested in information technology to stay abreast of market developments. It is this investment that led to the establishment of the B2B website – a timely response to the growing popularity of the Internet as a business platform.

The B2B online ticketing website will simplify booking procedures for all the airlines’ travel partners. By logging onto the website, travel agents will be able to check fares, tax and other relevant information according to the needs of their clients.

Besides expanding their business, the two airlines have always worked hard at meeting the needs of their travel partners and customers. As such, it is their hope that the new B2B website will result in a win-win situation for everyone.

Hong Kong Airlines and Hong Kong Express Airways welcome extension of landing and parking charges discount offered by Hong Kong Airport Authority
Press Release
04 Dec 2009

Hong Kong Airlines and Hong Kong Express Airways welcome the extension of the 10% discount in landing and parking charges at Hong Kong International Airport offered by the Airport Authority for another three months, until the end of March 2010.
This decision is in favor of Hong Kong Airlines and Hong Kong Express Airways as it facilitates them to increase frequencies and expand their worldwide network in 2010.

The relief package originally due to expire at the end of 2009 was intended to support the aviation industry on their roads to recovery. The extension is to further ease the airlines using HKIA as the market condition remains uncertain.

HK Airlines to add five cargo aircraft
14 January 2010
SCMP

Hong Kong Airlines, a subsidiary of HNA Group, will launch its dedicated all-cargo aircraft service on Tuesday and plans to beef up its freighter fleet by the end of the year to exploit reviving demand for air freight.

It will take delivery of three second-hand Boeing 737-300Fs, each capable of carrying 15 tonnes of cargo by March - the first was delivered on January 8 - and two new A330-200Fs, each with a 69 tonne capacity, will arrive in September and October.

All the freighters are being bought through its parent Hainan Airlines. HNA Group co-owns Hainan Airlines with billionaire investor George Soros.

"The strong rebound in cargo demand towards the end of 2009 will be followed by a recovery in tonnage in the next two years," Zi Yin, cargo director of Hong Kong Airlines, said yesterday.

It is the second all-cargo set-up by HNA Group after Yangzijiang Express Airlines, a Shanghai-based cargo carrier co-owned by China Airlines and other Taiwanese investors.

Small airlines complain over licence delays
14 December 2009
SCMP

Hong Kong's surviving smaller airlines say they are suffering from a regulatory backlash arising from the collapse of budget carrier Oasis Airlines.

Executives at Hong Kong Airlines and Hong Kong Express Airways say that since the collapse of Oasis under a mountain of debt in April last year, they have been unable to get approvals from the Air Traffic Licensing Authority (ATLA) for any new services.

The authority came under fire for granting Oasis a licence to fly to London in 2006 before it had established a track record as a designated Hong Kong carrier. The airline's subsequent collapse after just 16 months of operations embarrassed the authority and has led to allegations that it has made the licence application process unnecessarily rigid.

"We are exhausted with the back-and-forth paperwork now involved in licence applications," said William Chan Kit, deputy general manager of distribution and planning at Hong Kong Express and Hong Kong Airlines.

"I understand that they don't want to make a mistake again. But this is just beyond the limit."

An ATLA licence, which is decided on by an independent committee, is needed before a carrier can apply to the Transport and Housing Bureau for the right to fly to a particular destination.

Hong Kong Airlines and Hong Kong Express have applied for licences to fly to more than 50 destinations over the past two years. However, not one application has been approved, requiring the airlines to either withdraw or revise their applications.

Now 11 applications for licences to fly to destinations in places such as Taiwan, Southeast Asia, Japan, South Korea, the mainland, India, Australia and Europe are still pending. The earliest was submitted more than a year ago. Before Oasis went bankrupt in April 2008, a licence application process generally took only two to three months, said Chan.

The delays mean that time is running out for Hong Kong Airlines as the first two of 20 Airbus 330 aircraft on order are due to be delivered to the carrier in May. It plans to deploy the wide-bodied aircraft on a Moscow-Hong Kong route and submitted an application to fly the route in May.

"ATLA is never content with our answers and keeps asking us for more supplementary information. Some questions are so insignificant that even my financial director did not ask them," said Chan.

Last month, the authority demanded a "more focused" business plan from the company for the routes, including the result of any market research and forecast passenger load factors.

The authority also queried the financial status of Hong Kong Airlines and the support from its parent, HNA Group. Hong Kong Airlines has HK$181 million in share capital and its operations are funded mainly by loans and support from HNA.

Its liabilities are expected to reach HK$1.5 billion by 2011. "I can't say ATLA's concern about our finances is groundless, but the undertakings by HNA should be enough to clear their doubts," Chan said.

Under the Air Transport (Licensing of Air Services) regulations, there are a number of guiding principles under which the authority may grant or refuse an application, including the level of demand for air transport in the targeted area, whether in its view the applicant will be able to provide a satisfactory service and the financial resources of the applicant.

However, there is no timetable for how long it should take to grant or refuse a licence. "Sometimes, I think I would prefer if they rejected our case right away instead of continuously asking for more supplementary information," Chan said.

He added that the worst-case scenario now facing the carriers would be having to ground the new A330s, which he calculated would cost about US$1 million per month, taking into account rental cost and insurance. "The licensing authority is not protecting the public interest. It is restricting the liberalisation of the aviation market, which is against the principle of the government to promote competition," Chan said.

A Transport and Housing Bureau spokesman said: "Every application is processed and considered strictly in accordance with [licensing] regulations. We do not comment on individual applications."

Very nice pictures of the aircrafts.
It is interresting to read this informations about HKE, who contacted me for an interview as pilot. I am seeking informations since I discovered the bad situation of the company and pilots lay off. It sounds that this company has a big potential, but is still fighting to survive. Many pilots complain and advise not to work there. This is quite disturbing.

Yes - from the airport schedule I see HK Express flying to Seoul. In terms of the airline's reputation, it had some bad press lately about sour employee relations, especially with wage cuts and employee creeds.
