CAPA Australia Pacific Aviation Summit 2015, Sydney, 3-5 Aug: corporate aviation, airports, airlines

22-May-2015 10:27 AM

Qantas CEO Alan Joyce and Malaysia Airlines’ newly appointed CEO Christoph Mueller will headline the third annual CAPA Australia Pacific Aviation Summit at the Sheraton on the Park, Sydney, along with a host of C-level airline, airport and other aviation stakeholders.

This year’s CAPA Summit, on 3-5 August, will feature a 2-day high level Aviation Summit (4/5 August) preceded by the Corporate Travel Summit and Airport Innovation summits (3 August).

The key themes of this year’s aviation Summit include C-level responses to the swirling ‘open skies’ debate, the outlook for key markets as fuel prices recede, as well as workforce productivity in aviation.

Cebu Pacific long-haul Part 2: Australia and Hawaii expansion as A330 utilisation rates increase

25-Apr-2015 9:00 AM

Cebu Pacific is preparing to launch services to Hawaii by the end of 2015 and is also interested in launching Melbourne if it is able to secure additional traffic rights for Australia. Honolulu and Melbourne would be Cebu’s sixth and seventh long-haul destination, joining four in the Middle East and Sydney.

Cebu Pacific is also planning to start using its A330-300 widebody fleet to operate some of its flights to Hong Kong, Taipei and Tokyo. It currently uses the A330 on one of its daily Singapore flights and plans to add a second widebody frequency on Manila-Singapore, which is already its largest international route.

The new A330 flights will increase the utilisation rate of its widebody fleet, which is now low for LCC standards, and drive a 30% surge in total ASKs for 2015. The capacity growth is being achieved despite Cebu Pacific only expanding its fleet by three aircraft in 2015, including a single additional A330 as the carrier has shelved plans for adding two more A330s for a total of eight.

Australia domestic airline market outlook: Qantas Group reins in capacity as Virgin continues growth

17-Apr-2015 4:17 PM

Throughout the global financial crisis, Australia's domestic market defied global aviation trends. Although LCCs made inroads and grew the market, short-haul corporate travel – mostly in premium cabins – remained strong. A domestic market serving 20-odd million people produced profits in excess of AUD1 billion. More recently those profits were slashed during a capacity war between Virgin Australia, seeking a larger position in the market, and Qantas, which fought to defend its position.

Qantas applied the capacity brakes in the first half of fiscal 2015, removing seats across both Qantas and Jetstar for the first time since the capacity growth spurt. Capacity forecasts show the group continuing to remove capacity in 2H2015. Qantas is forecast to end FY2015 with a 3.5% reduction in domestic ASKs and Jetstar a 2.3% reduction. The smaller Virgin Australia will meanwhile grow 2.2% and its smaller LCC unit Tigerair will grow 8.9%.

Qantas seeks political support for international growth: ‘We operate below our full potential’

17-Mar-2015 9:00 AM

After Qantas' international division posted a profit for the six months to 31-Dec-2014, the division's first positive result since the Global Financial Crisis, the division needs to move from profit to sustainability and delivering returns. But Qantas is now considering international expansion after many years of reductions. A flight to Tokyo has been added, seasonal services to Vancouver have returned, there are supplementary long-haul services and Perth-Singapore may even be re-opened. Reports suggest a return to Sydney-San Francisco is even possible.

“We continue to operate below our full potential,” Qantas reported in a recent government submission. But as Qantas considers international growth, it confronts a markedly different international environment. Qantas argues that Australia viewed it as “expendable” and gave away international traffic rights without receiving enough in return. Qantas seeks to slow liberalisation under the justification of enforcing Australia’s legal duty to support a local aviation industry. This is effectively a mask for protectionism, begging the question: what is the value of a local aviation industry?

China Southern Airlines nearing target of 55x flights to Australia/NZ, continuing international push

12-Mar-2015 6:04 PM

Chinese aviation often features "light switch" developments: the sector can fumble along and then suddenly, as if a switch is flicked, change mindset to an ambitious target and work tirelessly to achieve it. Such was China Southern's 2010 plan to focus on Australia/New Zealand. After having not even a daily service to Sydney, the relatively unknown Guangzhou-based airline is to have 55 weekly flights in 2015. And China Southern now looks likely to achieve the goal as the airline will 53 weekly flights to the region beginning in mid-2015. Increases over the busier holiday season could tip it past the 55 mark threshold.

The next challenge will inevitably be sustainability. China Southern's Australia/New Zealand capacity fluctuates more than other major Asian airlines, with its strong outbound-China market having sharp peak and off-peak seasons. Operating a full year of 55 weekly flights may be some years away. But there is no doubt the aviation and tourism markets are forever changed, with more to come. Not so long ago China was a small blip for Australia but now there are services from the Big 3 as well as two smaller carriers, along with a proposed JV between Qantas and China Eastern as well as Air New Zealand and Air China, developments hardly on the radar a few years ago. China Southern's international push – in Australia and beyond – has pushed international capacity growth from 19% to 31% of ASKs.

Xiamen Airlines and Sichuan Airlines are China's latest airlines to fly long-haul; risks abound

12-Feb-2015 12:41 PM

Xiamen Airlines will be China's sixth airline to fly long-haul when it commences Xiamen-Amsterdam service as early as Jul-2015 using its new fleet of 787 Dreamliners. By the end of 2015, Xiamen Airlines expects to launch a four times weekly Xiamen-Sydney service. There could be later expansion to the US, but the longer flight length will be challenging.

Meanwhile, Sichuan Airlines is China's other new airline to fly long-haul. Services to Vancouver, Melbourne and Sydney will be followed by four times a week charter service Chengdu-Moscow with an A330.

Long-haul is a much smaller component of traffic than domestic flights for China's airlines, and this is especially true at secondary airlines like Xiamen and Sichuan, which have limited long-haul plans. No other Chinese airline already has or publicly intends to have widebody aircraft, but another long-haul Chinese carrier cannot be far away.
