Congested Beijing is building fresh airport capacity that will see it become the world's largest aviation hub, leaving London - currently the world's busiest system of airports - and even ambitious Dubai in its wake. Beijing's new airport at Daxing south of the city could have up to nine runways and ultimate capacity to handle around 370,000 passengers per day, or a staggering 135 million passengers p/a. This would increase capacity at Beijing area airports to around 220 million p/a - almost a quarter of a billion passengers.
Hainan Airlines and HNA Aviation Group chairman Wang Yingming has said the airline has decided to remain outside the global alliances fold for now, commenting that Hainan Airlines is "still single because we don't want to marry early." Instead, the profitable carrier plans to accelerate international network expansion organically - a higher risk option. Hainan Airlines will receive 10 aircraft this calendar year, increasing its seat capacity by 11%, with the majority of the planned capacity to be introduced in 2H2011.
Jetstar is planning to expand its Singapore-based fleet by 50% over the next six months as the low-cost carrier group looks to North Asia for the next phase of its dramatic expansion. As the largest low-cost airline group in the Asia-Pacific region continues to expand at a rate of about 20% per annum, additional capacity will not be directed west towards South Asia, the Middle East or Europe but primarily to North Asia, where Jetstar sees the most opportunities given North Asia’s very low LCC penetration rate. This strategy could signal growth for the Qantas brand in South Asia and Europe as the group looks at potentially announcing next month the launch of a new Singapore-based full-service carrier.
China is uniquely well placed to lead the global transformation in air traffic management, at least according to Boeing. Boeing Commercial Airplane’s vice president of Air Traffic Management, Neil Planzer, has forwarded the opinion that as China is neither burdened by the fragmentation that characterises EU airspace or the dated infrastructure of the US it has “the opportunity to demonstrate strong leadership and create transformational system design, development and implementation through its five year planning cycle”.
China’s three major carriers reported strong revenue gains in 1Q2011, based on Chinese Accounting Standards, although only China Eastern Airlines reported net profit improvements. Air China and China Southern Airlines both reported declines in their net profit due to one-time exceptional gains during 1Q2010. All the Chinese carriers that have reported 1Q2011 financial results to-date, including Hainan Airlines and Shandong Airlines, have reported positive net and operating profit margins.
Aeroports de Paris (AdP) has the highest market capitalisation among privatised airport operators at USD8.72 billion, closely followed by Fraport, according to Bloomberg figures. But the surprising fact is that, as with the airline industry, so many Chinese operators figure prominently.
