HK Airlines recovers from turbulence of its take-off
26 July 2010
SCMP

Building a strong airline business in southern China's congested market requires the endurance of a marathon runner rather than the explosive energy of a sprinter - a lesson learned the hard way by Hong Kong Airlines.

In June 2007, under the wing of mainland-listed HNA Group - which had earlier acquired a controlling 45 per cent stake - Hong Kong Airlines took off on a blistering expansion programme that stunned rival operators,

Backed by the fourth-largest carrier on the mainland, it announced an order for 51 Airbus 320 and A330 aircraft at an estimated price of US$5.6 billion.

There followed an expansion of its network in 2007 and 2008, to over 20 mainland destinations, including some third-tier cities such as Xian, Tianjin and Jinan.

But the strains of an over-ambitious expansion strategy and the costs of flying with near-empty aircraft began to take their toll, and the airline resorted to cancelling flights at short notice - a move that soured its reputation and image among the travelling public.

Poor on-time performance of flights aggravated the growing dissatisfaction among customers.

"We paid a high price for a hasty expansion programme in recent years," vice-president Zhong Guosong said.

The painful process of being forced to trim costs included the sacking of more than 100 pilots, cabin crew and staff in late 2008 and early 2009. The resentment of pilots was expressed in an internet thread, which runs for 52 pages on a Web-based bulletin popular among local pilots.

Now the carrier has consolidated its mainland network to about 10 popular destinations, including Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Changsha and Kunming. Flight schedules have been changed to focus on the destinations that are in greatest demand, and the carrier has upgraded the service to Beijing to three daily flights. It will add a second daily flight to Shanghai next month.

It now offers just two flights to Japan - Okinawa and Hokkaido - from six two years ago. As a result of consolidating its network and committing to increased service quality, the on-time performance of Hong Kong Air has shot up to above 85 per cent, said Zhong.

"We dedicated ourselves to brand-building by improving the reliability and service quality of our flights," he said.

"Passengers will find themselves more comfortable in the cabins as they have a wider seat pitch and width on the B737-800s and A330-200s, as opposed to local competitors."

This month Hong Kong Air also opened its first VIP lounge in Hong Kong International Airport. The 200- square-metre lounge, which can accommodate up to 50 passengers, is a milestone for the airline in exploring the market of high rollers and corporate clients, now dominated by its bigger rival, Cathay Pacific Airways.

The lounge, which cost the company over HK$2 million to renovate, can accommodate all the business class passengers from all 12 of its current daily flights.

But since the airline is to add more services - a daily flight to Narita Airport in Tokyo, and a new service to Taipei by November - it will review the facilities and could expand the lounge to 700 square metres, said Zhong.

On three daily flights to Moscow, Hong Kong Air's first European destination, seat sales have reached 70 per cent of capacity in the first month of service, Zhong said. Most seats are taken by group tours, while fewer than 30 passengers per flight are individual travellers.

Advance bookings for the Moscow flight up to September have snapped up 90 per cent of the seats, on robust summer demand from holidaymakers in the Pearl River Delta, he said. The airline plans flights to Paris and Vancouver as soon as next year, when it takes delivery of its sixth A330.

Having settled in for the long haul rather than bolting out of the blocks like a sprinter, last week the airline signalled its intentions to continue a measured expansion by reporting it would exercise an option to buy 10 more A330s and exchange 15 of its ordered A330s to 15 A350s, which cater to the ultra-long-haul trips to Europe and North America.

They're owned by the same people and the 2 brands are due to legacy reasons. Before Hainan Airlines took over, these were 2 separate competing companies.

They are officially two airlines, but owned by the same owner.
The two used to be separate companies, but then one bought out the other.
The situation is kind of like Cathay Pacific and Dragonair, two very closely related airlines.

The two are pretty much the same, but serving different destinations these days.

Russia's fires hit HK travellers
9 August 2010
SCMP

At least one flight and two tour groups from Hong Kong to Russia, have been affected following heavy smog caused by a series of forest and peat bog fires.

The government warned Hongkongers who are in Moscow and neighbouring areas to avoid outdoor and energy-consuming activities.

The advice came after a Hong Kong Airlines flight scheduled to leave for the Russian capital yesterday morning was forced to delay the trip for at least a day, because one of the airline's planes was stranded in Russia due to the low visibility.

A total of 192 passengers were affected, including 53 from three tour groups to Russia who are forced to cancel their trip, a spokeswoman for the airline said.


One woman who had just finished a nine-day tour to Russia and returned to Hong Kong yesterday, said both outdoor areas and those indoors in Moscow had been affected by the smoke. Her tour guide handed out face masks to her and other travellers. "We mainly stayed in indoor areas, but we could even smell the smoke despite there being air-conditioning," she said, adding that she could see haze in the hotel lobby and her room. "We planned to go and see the night view of Red Square yesterday [Saturday] night, but we didn't go eventually because a member of our group had mild asthma."

But Joseph Tung Yao-chung, Travel Industry Council's executive director, said there were about six tour groups in Russia now and their itineraries were not affected.

Hong Kong Airlines to start regular flights to Naha in Sept.
Kyodo News

TOKYO, Aug. 23 -- Hong Kong Airlines Ltd. will launch a regular flight service on Sept. 6 between Hong Kong and Naha in Okinawa Prefecture for the first time, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism said Monday.

The carrier will offer a round-trip night flight on Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday using a Boeing 737. Its sister airline Hong Kong Express already flies on a daily basis between the two cities.

''I assume the move by Hong Kong Airlines reflects the growth in the number of Chinese travelers to Japan,'' a ministry official said. ''We are also planning regular flights by the carrier linking Hong Kong with Narita and Haneda airports.''

HK cancels flights to Laoag and Manila
27 August 2010
Philippine Daily Inquirer

LAOAG CITY—Direct flights from Hong Kong to this city have been canceled “indefinitely” beginning Thursday, a fallout from the bloody Aug. 23 hostage-taking at Luneta Park in Manila that left eight Hong Kong tourists dead.

Ronal Estabillo, manager of Laoag International Airport, said he received a letter this week from executives of Hong Kong Express Flights notifying the airport of the cancellation of the airline's direct flights to Laoag.

The Hong Kong airline flies in tourists twice a week. About 1,200 Hong Kong tourists visit the city monthly for rest and recreation, said Milagros Gonzales, provincial tourism officer.

Most of the tourists visit Fort Ilocandia to play in the casino there, the tourism office said.

Estabillo said the airline's letter was silent on the reason for the cancellation. But he said he was aware of a travel ban imposed by Chinese authorities on Tuesday in the aftermath of the bungled rescue attempt of the Chinese hostages.

Estabillo said the last Hong Kong flight to the city that was scheduled to arrive at 5 p.m. on Thursday was expected to fly home the remaining Chinese tourists who arrived here on Sunday.

Flights from Hong Kong take only 45 minutes to reach Laoag International Airport.

Gonzales said she was also told that a scheduled flight from Kaoshiung, Taiwan, to this city also faced cancellation. Around 200 Taiwanese tourists visit the city each month to play in the casino or play golf.

Authorities here are unaware if Taiwan had issued any travel ban or travel advisory as a result of the deadly Manila bus hijacking.

“We hope to bring back these tourists in the coming days when the anguish over the tragedy has died down. … [But] we were informed that all bookings in two major hotels in the city have been canceled since Tuesday,” Gonzales said.

<strong>More cancellations</strong>

In Manila, the country's tourism sector has started to feel the effects of Monday's Luneta hostage-taking, with local airlines and hotels reporting a wave of flight and booking cancellations just days after the tragedy.

The country's flag carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL) said 558 people from Hong Kong and other parts of China who were booked to travel to the Philippines in the next 30 days have canceled their flights to Manila and other tourist destinations in the country.

At the same time, Gokongwei-led Cebu Pacific reported rebooking and cancellation requests from about 2 percent of the company's passengers to Hong Kong.

PAL president Jaime J. Bautista said the company had been swamped by calls from potential passengers cancelling flights to the country amid security concerns following Monday's hostage crisis.

“About 90 groups of tourists have canceled flights to the Philippines from Hong Kong and other parts of China,” Bautista said. The groups are the equivalent of about 558 tourists. Many of the PAL passengers were headed to Kalibo, the gateway to the island paradise of Boracay.

“Hong Kong is a very important route for PAL,” Bautista said. But he said so far, only flights from China have been affected by the cancellations.

“PAL is beginning to feel the initial impact of a Hong Kong government advisory warning its residents to refrain from all travel to the Philippines,” he said.

<strong>Worst-case scenario</strong>

The worst-case scenario for the company, he said, will be the reduction of flights to Hong Kong.

About 6 percent of PAL's revenues come from its operations to Hong Kong. PAL flies to Hong Kong five times a day. The airline also flies to Macau, Shanghai, Xiamen and Beijing.

For its part, budget carrier Cebu Pacific said several of its passengers from Hong Kong had also asked to have their flights either rebooked or canceled.

“As of Aug. 26, we have received rebooking and cancel requests from less than 2 percent of the total number of passengers for the airline's Hong Kong routes,” the company said in a statement.

Meanwhile, the Philippine Travel Agencies Association (PTAA) said eight hotels and seven resorts had reported requests for cancellations by tourists from Hong Kong and other parts of China.

This amounts to about 300 rooms in popular tourist destinations like Bohol, Palawan, Boracay, Cebu and Manila, the PTAA said.

I wasn't aware HX was flying to India.

CELEBI INDIA TO SERVICE GROUND-HANDLING FOR AUSTRIAN AIRLINES

MUMBAI, Oct 4 Asia Pulse - Turkish airport services provider Celebi has said it will provide ground-handling services to Austrian Airlines, a member of the Star Alliance, at the Delhi and Mumbai airports.

The contract with Austrian Airlines came into effect last Friday, a press release said here.

Under the agreement, Celebi India would provide Austrian Airlines with passenger services and ramp handling at New Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport.

The ground-handling agreement between Celebi and Austrian Airlines is a significant development for the company, the release said.

The Turkish ground-handling agency currently provides services to Air Astana, Kam Air, Turkish Airlines and Air Cargo, Germany.

The company plans to provide its services to Hong Kong Airlines from November, it said.

Celebi started offering ground-handling services in addition to the cargo warehousing services at Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport from June this year.

Hong Kong Airlines confirms orders for A330 and A350 XWB
13 October 2010

Hong Kong Airlines has finalised a contract with Airbus covering the firm order of 10 more A330-200 long range aircraft and converted an existing order for 15 A330s to the A350 XWB. Both agreements were previously announced upon signature of an initial MOU during the Farnborough Air Show in July this year.

Deliveries of the newly ordered A330-200s will begin in 2012, while the carrier's first A350 XWB will arrive in 2018. The aircraft will be operated across a long haul network currently being developed by the airline to link Hong Kong with a wide range of destinations in Europe and North America.

"Today's announcement underscores our plan to operate an extensive long haul network," said Yang Jian Hong, President, Hong Kong Airlines. "The A330-200 is the perfect platform for us to develop these services, while the all-new A350 XWB will become our new flagship towards the end of this decade."

"We are extremely pleased that Hong Kong Airlines has placed its confidence in our products to build its long range fleet," said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer Customers. "With the A330 and the A350 XWB, the carrier will be operating the cleanest, most efficient aircraft available in the mid-size widebody market, both now and in the future."

Hong Kong Airlines has now ordered a total 33 widebody aircraft from Airbus, comprising 18 A330s and 15 A350 XWBs. The carrier also has 30 single aisle A320 aircraft on firm order for future delivery.

The A330 is one of the most widely used widebody aircraft in service today. To date, Airbus has won more than 1,100 orders for the various versions of the aircraft and over 700 A330s are currently flying with more than 80 airlines worldwide.

The A350 XWB Family is an all-new product line seating between 270 and 350 passengers in typical three-class layouts. Scheduled for first entry-into-service in 2013, the family has now won 573 firm orders from 35 customers worldwide.
