ROUTES: Tanzania targets Delta and Hong Kong Express
By Brendan Sobie
http://www.flightglobal.com/articles...g-express.html

Tanzania's Dar es Salaam airport is hoping Delta Air Lines and Hong Kong Express will become the next carriers secured at the World Route Development Forum.

Tanzania Airport Authority is attending the forum for the fifth consecutive year. The authority's commercial manager, Scolasticka Mukajanga says Dar es Salaam's newest carrier, Turkish Airlines, was secured after meetings held at the last three forums.

"We started with them at Stockholm, then at Kuala Lumpur and then in Beijing they confirmed," Mukajanga says.

Turkish launched four weekly flights to Dar es Salaam's Julius Nyerere International Airport in June. Mukanganga also credits Routes' Africa event for helping secure Qatar Airways, which began serving Dar es Salaam in 2008.

Julius Nyerere Airport commercial manager Efatha Lyimo says meetings are scheduled in Vancouver with Hong Kong Express and Delta. Lyimo and Mukajanga are confident Hong Kong Express is close to confirming service to Dar es Salaam.

"We still have some negotiations with Hong Kong Express. We met them last year in Beijing and will meet them again here," Lyimo says.

Lyimo says the airport will also meet with Delta for the third time at Routes as it tries to persuade the US carrier to serve Tanzania. Delta has repeatedly delayed the launch of service to Nairobi, which it initially planned to launch in 2008. Tanzania is now trying to convince Delta to serve Dar es Salaam instead, claiming most leisure passengers flying into Kenya end up holidaying in Tanzania.

"All the tourist attractions are in Tanzania but a lot of tourists have to go to Nairobi," says Lyimo. "We say come to the destination itself."

Julius Nyerere Airport last year handled 1.5 million passengers in 2009 and expects to handle 1.6 million passengers in 2010. It is the largest of three international airports in Tanzania - the others being at Kilimanjaro and Zanzibar. The Tanzania Airport Authority has positioned Dar es Salaam as country's main hub. Lyimo says Europe is a big leisure market for Julius Nyerere while Asia and the Middle East are its largest business markets.

1,200 out to land airline jobs
22 November 2010
The Standard

More than 1,000 hopefuls checked in at the largest recruitment day for cabin crew held by Hong Kong Airlines, as it looks to expand its fleet and routes.

A total of 1,120 applications were received from 9am to 5pm yesterday for about 500 places in the first round of interviews.

The carrier is seeking to hire 100 new cabin crew next year as it plans to add five more short and long-haul flights to its existing 26 routes.

``I'd love to see the world and it's my dream to be a flight attendant,'' said Helen Mak, 22, who has just completed a five-year business degree program in the United States.

``I just returned to Hong Kong two days ago and got myself well-prepared before coming here,'' Mak said.

Her friend, Candas Chan, 23, who graduated from a communication degree program also in the United States, waited in line for more than an hour.

``Being a flight attendant has always been in my career plan. I would love to travel around the world and communicate with people from different nationalities,'' Chan said.

Another hopeful, Janice Yiu, 19, who is sitting the Hong Kong Advanced Level Examination next year, said she may consider giving up a university offer if her job application is successful.

``This has been my dream since childhood. I believe my positive character and passion in the aviation industry can help my application,'' Yiu said.

Hong Kong Airlines plans to expand its long-haul routes to cities such as Paris, London and Istanbul, and short-haul flights to South Korea.

``Applicants' educational background and related work experience aren't our top recruitment criteria. What we are concerned most about is the attitude candidates have towards the job,'' said human resources and administration general manager Stanley Kan Ho-yin .

In groups of five or six, candidates were interviewed for 20 minutes.

Successful candidates will receive seven weeks' training in Sanya, starting early next year.

Two more open recruitment days will be held in February and July, as the airline posts more openings.

Hong Kong Air plans to raise HK$5b in IPO
23 November 2010
SCMP

Hong Kong Airlines, controlled by the mainland's fourth-largest airline Hainan Airlines, is planning to raise HK$5 billion with a share flotation in Hong Kong.

The move is aimed at funding aircraft acquisition that will increase its fleet beyond 40 aircraft by 2012, Yang Jianhong, president of Hong Kong Airlines said.

The carrier, which operates more than 30 routes from the city, has ordered 33 widebody aircraft from Airbus - 18 Airbus 330s and 15 A350s this year. It also has 30 A320s on firm order for future delivery.

The total cost for the planned purchase will exceed US$6 billion, Yang said yesterday on the sidelines of a press conference announcing company events to celebrate 100 years of aviation in the city next year.

With aviation industry growth rebounding this year, Hong Kong Air has been able to move back into the black. In the first half, the carrier generated an operating profit that amounted to "tens of millions", said Yang. The profit still does not match the airline's huge capital commitment for its aggressive expansion plan, which is why it needs to tap the capital market for funds.

Two to three international investment banks are in talks with the airline over the initial public offering (IPO), scheduled in the third quarter of next year, Yang added.

Grand China Airlines, the parent of Hainan Airlines, has also dusted off its listing plan, which had to be shelved two years ago as a result of the economic crisis, Yang added. "Grand China aims to raise more than HK$10 billion in Hong Kong in the first half of next year," he said.

The application for its IPO as a "red chip" company - a mainland company registered overseas - has been approved by the State Council, Yang added. The listing will bring HNA Group's listing vehicles in Hong Kong to four, along with Hainan Meilan International Airport and Hong Kong International Aviation, which is doing a back-door listing through a Hong Kong-listed toy company.

Grand China is the holding company of Hainan Airlines, China Xinhua Airlines, Shanxi Airlines and Changan Airlines. Hong Kong Airlines operates mainland routes to Beijing, Shanghai and Hangzhou, and regional routes to Denpasar, Tokyo, and Moscow. It now operates 18 aircraft.

The company's headcount has grown to 1,200. It recruited 700 people this year, of which 300 to 400 are cabin crew. It will hire more than 400 people, including cabin crew and ground service workers, next year. The carrier will also recruit 80 pilots next year after adding 130 pilots to its team this year.

Leasing firm files suit to wind up HK Airlines
8 December 2010
SCMP

Team Cignus, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tokyo-listed NEC Capital Solutions, filed a petition in the High Court to wind up Hong Kong Airlines.

According to a directors' report for the year ended March, Team Cignus, an Irish-registered company, leased an aircraft to Hainan Airlines, which then subleased it to Hong Kong Airlines.

Hainan Airlines controls Hong Kong Airlines.

The aircraft is a Boeing 737-800 that was delivered in December 2006.

As of March 31, Team Cignus was owed US$1.55 million by Hainan Airlines, the directors' report said. Hong Kong Airlines subsequently provided Team Cignus with a plan to settle outstanding rentals worth US$1.8 million and default interest. On July 2, the company received US$400,000, according to the report, dated July 21.

Although Hainan Airlines, the mainland's fourth-largest airline, is the contractual lessor, it is Hong Kong Airlines that has been making the lease payments.

The company was continuing to monitor both airlines' operational and financial conditions when the report was issued.

It noted that the value of the receivable balance would be dependent on the financial strength of Hainan Airlines, and that a default by that airline or Hong Kong Airlines could affect their cash flows and earnings.

At the time of the report, the directors believed it would be possible to recover the sum.

NEC Capital Solutions, a financial services provider, declined to comment, citing court proceedings.

Hong Kong Airlines could not be reached for comment.

The petition, filed on Monday, comes just as Hong Kong Airlines plans to raise HK$5 billion in a share float in Hong Kong, a move that the company's president, Yang Jianhong, recently said was intended to fund aircraft acquisition to expand its fleet beyond 40 aircraft by 2012.

Hong Kong Airlines operates more than 30 routes from Hong Kong. It has ordered 33 wide-bodied aircraft from Airbus.

The planned purchase was expected to cost more than US$6 billion, Yang said.

Hong Kong Airlines settles lease payment
9 December 2010
SCMP

Hong Kong Airlines settled the US$2 million aircraft lease payment it owed to an NEC Capital Solutions subsidiary yesterday after the Japanese leasing company filed a petition to wind up the airline on Monday.

Team Cignus, a subsidiary of NEC Capital, leased a Boeing 737-800 to Hainan Airlines, which the latter has sub-leased to Hong Kong Airlines since 2006 at a rate of US$1.09 million for three months.

"We have paid Team Cignus today and are working with our lawyers to cross out the petition in the High Court," Kenneth Thong, head of corporate governance of Hong Kong Airlines, said. He said Hong Kong Airlines paid Hainan Airlines the rental fee for the aircraft on time but was not sure whether the latter transferred the payment to the lessor.

According to Thong, Team Cignus, which has no direct contractual relationship with Hong Kong Airlines, said Hainan Airlines had assigned it to collect the payment from Hong Kong Airlines.

"But they have violated the procedure by filing a winding-up petition before filing a writ of summons to claim the payment," Thong said. "This has caused severe damage to our reputation."

The carrier might consider legal action against Team Cignus for abuse of court procedure as well as loss of goodwill as a result of the petition, he added.

Hong Kong Airlines aims to increase its fleet size to 40 by 2012 through acquisition and leasing.

Singapore Changi Airport to welcome Hong Kong Airlines

SINGAPORE, 7 January 2011 – Changi Airport Group will welcome Hong Kong Airlines to its growing network of airlines later this month. Hong Kong Airlines will operate both freighter and passenger services to Singapore from 14 January 2011 and 15 January 2011 respectively. It is the second carrier to operate passenger services to Changi Airport and the first to commence freighter services to Singapore this year.

Hong Kong Airlines will operate a daily passenger service on Airbus A332 aircraft (in a two-class configuration) as well as four-weekly freighter services on Airbus A330-200F aircraft. The freighter service, with a capacity of 64 tonnes, will operate on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. With the addition of Hong Kong Airlines, the Singapore and Hong Kong route will be served by some 270 passenger flights and 50 freighter flights each week.
