SEAir expands reach, plans flights to Taipei
20 February 2011
Philippine Daily Inquirer

MANILA, Philippines—Southeast Asian Airlines (SEAir) has sought government approval to mount flights to Taipei, Taiwan, as the company expands its route network in the Asia-Pacific region.

The leisure carrier earlier this month said it wanted to mount flights between its hub in Clark Freeport Pampanga and the Taiwan capital, documents from the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) showed.

However, the company said it would start serving the route with chartered flights.

“SEAir has filed with the CAB an application for designation as an official Philippine carrier to Taipei and allocation for entitlements under charter operations on the routes Clark to Taipei and vice versa,” a CAB notice said.

SEAir is currently on an aggressive expansion program made possible by the support of regional airline giant Tiger Airways of Singapore.

Under the two airlines' partnership, SEAir would lease from the Singapore Airlines unit several jet aircraft capable of international flights. So far, the company has leased two 144-seater Airbus A-319 aircraft from its partner.

Using its new planes, SEAir started to fly to Singapore last year. Earlier this month, the company mounted flights from the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport in Clark to the Chinese cities Hong Kong and Macau.

SEAir has said it also plans to add more flights from Clark to Vietnam, Korea and Thailand. SEAir flights can be booked through Tiger Airways' website, which gives the foreign carrier indirect access to its partner's domestic operations.

This arrangement with Tiger Airways has been hit by other local airlines, accusing SEAir of skirting a constitutional restriction against the participation of foreign entities in vital industries such as transportation.

Meanwhile, CAB said it had approved a hike in Philippine Airlines' (PAL) fuel surcharges for international flights last month amid rising fuel prices.

The highest increase in surcharge was for flights from Manila to Xiamen City, China, at $45 per ticket from the previous $24, or an increase of 87.5 percent.

The next highest increase in surcharge was for flights to Taiwan and Macau from Manila. The surcharge was raised to $35 from $19, or an increase of 84 percent. Surcharges are charged by airlines on top of ticket prices to cover the cost of fuel.

The lowest increase in surcharge was for flights between Manila and Australia, or about 19 percent, to $130 from $109. PAL flies to the major cities of Melbourne and Sydney.

Data from the International Air Transport Association showed the price of jet fuel at $117 per barrel, or 42.8 percent higher than last year.

Over the weekend, PAL reported a “modest” net income of $15.1 million for the third quarter of its fiscal year—a turnaround from the $22.9-million comprehensive net loss during the same period in 2009.

But the company warned that the rising cost of jet fuel, which continued to be its single-biggest expense item, continued to loom as a threat to its sustained profitability.

MOTC censured by Control Yuan over air safety lapses
Staff Writer, with CNA
19 February 2011
Taipei Times

The Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) was censured yesterday over the high number of air safety lapses in Taiwan last year.

According to the Control Yuan, the Civil Aeronautics Administration registered 14 air traffic violations from January last year until Nov. 20, most of which involved human error.

These include a runway incursion that occurred on July 2 at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport where a Russian cargo plane intruded onto a runway from which a Singapore Airlines flight was taking off.

This blunder was later determined to be the result of a communications breakdown between the pilot of the Russian aircraft and air traffic controllers.

In a similar case on Nov. 4 at the same airport, an EVA Airways aircraft wandered onto a runway from which a China Airlines plane was preparing to take off. The incident was traced to a verbal mistake by air traffic controllers.

An investigation by the Control Yuan showed that there were 92 cases of go-around at the airport.

Although most of these were initiated for safety reasons, some were caused by human factors.

In addition, the Control Yuan discovered that since 2005, 97 air traffic controllers have either quit or retired, resulting in a lack of experienced staff.

Fatigue among air traffic controllers is another issue of concern, the Control Yuan said, pointing out that controllers in Taiwan work 11-hour day shifts and 13-hour night shifts, which are excessively long when measured against standard international practice.

Airport radiation checks discover no health risks
Staff Writer, with CNA
18 March 2011
Taipei Times


Military personnel were stationed at Taiwans airports yesterday to help check for radiation contamination on incoming passengers.

A total of 42 chemical hazard specialists from the military joined Atomic Energy Council personnel, who have been deployed at airports in Taipei, Taoyuan County and Greater Kaohsiung since Tuesday checking for the presence of particles of radiation on incoming travelers, Army Command Headquarters said.

Meanwhile, at a military school in Taoyuan, soldiers conducted a drill removing radioactive particles from peoples bodies, clothes and vehicles.

On Tuesday evening, authorities set up scanning equipment at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport, Taipei International (Songshan) Airport and Kaohsiung International Airport, and as of yesterday afternoon, more than 4,400 people arriving from Japan had been tested, 26 detected with mild radiation contamination that posed no health risk, the council said.

Most of the radioactive particles were discovered on their shoes or clothes, an official said.

All were allowed to leave after they had changed their shoes or clothes, or had the affected items washed, he said.

Atomic Energy Council Deputy Minister Shieh Der-jhy said that all detected particles so far were within safe levels and could be washed away by passengers.

He told reporters at the legislature that his agency might impose compulsory radiation detection at airports if the situation worsens.

However, Shieh assured the media that we have not reached that stage yet.

Officials have also begun screening food imported from Japan for radioactivity, even though officials have said they believe Japanese food products being imported were produced before the earthquake struck.

In related news, Taiyen Biotech Co, the former state-owned salt company, announced yesterday that it was suspending iodized salt exports in light of a potential radiation release from the stricken Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant in Japan.

The salt producer has ramped up production of iodized salt, while suspending exports and forbidding hoarding by distributors and retailers, Taiyen chairman Hung Hsi-yao said at a press conference in a bid to ease fears about a potential shortage of domestic salt supplies.

The number of foreign buyers interested in Taiyens iodized salt has increased dramatically in the past two days, mostly in China, Huang said.

Taiyen had intended to offer iodized salt to Japan, but since Japan has its own salt factories, the company has decided to focus chiefly on domestic supply.

Thai AirAsia giving up on Taipei flights
Published: 21/03/2011 at 12:00 AM
http://www.bangkokpost.com/business/...taipei-flights

Heavy fare discounts by at least two international full-service airlines and soaring fuel prices have prompted Thai AirAsia (TAA) to discontinue its service between Bangkok and Taipei later this month.

It is one of the few routes the budget carrier has decided to abandon in recent years as it is unable to match the "almost give-away" fares offered by KLM and EVA Air that simply want to fill empty seats on intercontinental flights from Taipei that stop over in Bangkok.

With jet fuel prices surging to around US$130 a barrel and the relatively long flight time of three hours and 40 minutes, it became difficult for TAA to profit even if it raised fares, said chief executive Tassapon Bijleveld.

Competing full-service carriers charge as little as 6,000 to 7,000 baht for round-trip Bangkok-Taipei flights, according to airline sources.

TAA recorded a relatively good load factor, most recently 75-78% on the route. TAA inaugurated the service in September 2009 and operates four flights a week using a 180-seat Airbus A320. The last flight is scheduled for March 25.

Mr Tassapon said TAA was better off shifting the capacity to the Bangkok-Singapore route, a shorter trip with strong demand. It will introduce a fourth daily Bangkok-Singapore flight on April 1.

With fuel prices high, he said, TAA would have to be more cautious about introducing new routes where traffic demand has yet to be proven.

It has therefore suspended its plan to launch regular flights from Bangkok to Hangzhou, China, initially scheduled at three a week. It takes about four hours to fly to Hangzhou, and the fuel cost is the primary concern.

TAA would rather focus on the new market it entered last December: daily flights from Bangkok to Kolkata and Delhi, which are producing high load factors.

The airline is looking to serve more Indian cities, such as Bangalore and Chennai, in the future.

With the termination of Taipei service, TAA serves 13 international destinations and 10 domestic.

Songshan's second terminal opened for domestic flights
30 March 2011
Taipei Times

Domestic flight passengers at Taipei International Airport (Songshan airport) must now board from its second terminal, the Ministry of Transportation and Communications said yesterday.

The second terminal was closed in October for renovation, with international and domestic passengers sharing the first terminal.

According to the Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA), the second terminal will serve only domestic flights. It is now equipped with two new jet bridges, two baggage carousels and departure lounges. Three airlines offering domestic flights Uni Air, TransAsia Airways and Mandarin Airlines have check-in counters inside the terminal.

Nationwide chains Mr Brown Coffee and Family Mart have also opened stores at the renovated terminal.

The first terminal will serve passengers taking international flights, including cross-strait flights, the CAA said.

Premier Wu Den-yih said at the inauguration ceremony that the reconstruction work at the airport had been especially challenging because it was undertaken while the airport remained operational. He described the situation as being tantamount to someone needing to wear a suit, but have it mended at the same time.

The mended suit turned out to fit perfectly, Wu said, adding that the improved facilities and services now offered at the airport could help expand the tourism market as well as passenger flights.

Two-thirds of the reconstruction work at the airport has been completed, MOTC Minister Mao Chi-kuo said.

According to Mao, direct flights between Tokyo Haneda Airport and Songshan airport account for 45 percent of Hanedas total flights to Taiwan. The flights between Shanghai Hongqiao Airport and Songshan airport also account for 35 percent of Hongqiaos total flights to Taiwan, he said.

Far Eastern Air Transport can fly again, CAA says
14 April 2011
Taipei Times

Far Eastern Air Transport (FAT, ) can resume flights and ticket sales after it received regulatory approval for flights between Taipei and Kinmen, the Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) said yesterday.

FAT applied to resume service last week and it secured regulatory approval and an operational license on Tuesday.

We have examined the airlines operations and decided to approve its applications, said Chu Kuan-wen, director of CAAs air transport division.

As the airline is still restructuring, the CAA will continue to monitor it and could conduct further inspections if necessary, Chu said.

The CAA suspended FATs operations in 2008 because of financial problems, and the airlines management has changed several times since then.

The airline filed a financial restructuring plan with the Taipei District Court, which approved the plan in 2009.

The airline said in the plan it would allow people who had unused tickets bought before the company suspended its flights to use those tickets.

Company data shows that there are about 10,000 unused tickets in circulation that were sold before suspension.

FAT is planning to provide two Taipei-Kinmen flights a day initially, with one-way tickets priced at NT$2,050.

Before the suspension, a similar one-way ticket on FAT cost NT$1,800.

Under the outlines of the airlines restructuring plan, travelers can purchase four new tickets and then have NT$1,800 deducted from the cost.
