 维珍澳洲航空(Virgin Australia)上半年表现亮眼,前景改善 


维珍澳洲航空(Virgin Australia)二月底宣布2018财年上半年税前利润为1.03亿澳元(约合8020万美元),公司表示这是十年来的最好业绩。与之前的同期(截至2016年12月31日)相比,上述结果增加了6000万澳元。


受益于国内主线业务的强劲单位收入,上半年营收增加6%,达到27.9亿澳元。法定净利润达440万澳元,扭转了之前同期亏损2150万澳元的局面。


首席执行官John Borghetti表示:“这一结果体现了我们重新定位公司,加强其财务基础的长期战略的成功。但是,为了确保持续实现更优业绩,未来我们还有更多工作要做。”


由于座公里收入(RASK)提高7.4%且运能削减2.2%,维珍国内主线业务息税前收入(EBIT)几乎翻倍,达到1.53亿澳元。这使得客座率攀升3.1个百分点,达到81%。


Borghetti表示,国内运营受益于公司和消费者信心增强及其企业市场份额的上升。


国际服务业务实现140万澳元的息税前收入,与之前同期的80万澳元相比有所上升,收益增加3.4%。这一细分业务受印度尼西亚火山灰活动及墨尔本 - 香港航线初始成本的影响。


该航空公司展望未来发展时表示,预计下半年业绩与之前同期相比将有所提升。


同时,该承运商的最大股东不会发起公司私有化竞标,但航空公司将为小股东出售其股份提供工具。


该航空公司董事长Elizabeth Bryan表示,如2017年11月披露的信息,航空公司董事会曾讨论可能会买断剩余的股东,将公司从澳大利亚证券交易所退市。她补充道:“在与大股东进行讨论之后,董事会决定不进行公司私有化。”


维珍最大的四家股东(阿提哈德航空集团(Etihad Airways Group)、新加坡航空公司(Singapore Airlines)、海航集团(HNA Group)和南山集团(Nanshan Group))共计持有航空公司大约80%的股份。理查德·布兰森(Richard Branson)的维珍集团(Virgin Group)还持有10%的股权。


相对较小的自由流通股导致小股东担心可能没有现成的市场出售其股份。为了弥补这一问题,Bryan表示董事会目前已向股东提出方案,按每股0.30澳元的价格回购其500澳元(约合389美元)以内的股份,与去年均价相比每股大约有5分的溢价。


 新闻简报 


菲律宾航空公司(Philippine Airlines)今年将为其机队增加两款新机型,预定交付六架空客A321 neo及四架A350-900。它将于三月接收第一架A321 neo,至五月将其部署到马尼拉至布里斯班航线。第一架A350将于六月交付,部署到美国东海岸至欧洲的直飞航线。


香料航空(SpiceJet)排除了收购印度航空(Air India)的可能性,因为这家国有旗舰承运商今年将进行私有化。香料航空(SpiceJet)董事长兼董事总经理Ajay Singh在接受FlightGlobal航升访谈时表示,作为一家低成本航空公司,香料航空有自己的“大规模”扩张计划,希望专注于自身的成长。


全日空航空公司(All Nippon Airways)提高了将波音777货机加入其机队的预期。全日空控股集团首席执行官Shinya Kataozaka在最近的一场新闻发布会上表示,购买777-200LRF运营至北美地区的货运服务是公司的优先考虑事项。


 航运量 


1月,亚太地区主要承运商的旅客航运量增长低于航空公司增加的额外运能。


FlightGlobal航升收集的数据显示,与2017年同月相比,1月的旅客航运量增加了2.5%。而同月亚洲地区承运商运能增加近5%。


该数据涵盖11家航空公司,主要受今年中国春节时间较晚影响。春节假期通常会带来航空旅游需求增长,去年春节在一月份,今年则为二月中旬。


需求率放缓导致一月份客座率下滑1.8个百分点,至79.7%。所有承运商该月的客座率均有下滑,包括国航、东航及南航等中国大型承运商下滑幅度超过2个百分点。

 运能 


FlightGlobal航升三月航班计划数据显示,中国承运商领跑亚太地区航空公司运能扩张速度。


我们收集的航班计划数据显示,与2017年3月相比,中国国航(Air China Group)、东航(China Eastern Airlines)、南航(China Southern Airlines)和海南航空(Hainan Airlines)均计划今年3月将ASK运能增加两位数。


在FlightGlobal航升追踪的12家亚太地区航空公司中,只有这四家承运商计划在三月将运能提升两位数。


与2017年3月相比,所有承运商都在提升ASK运能,但日本全日空航空公司(All Nippon Airways)该月的座位运能与去年同月相比略有下降。

LATEST NEWS

London Heathrow gets go-ahead for £14 billion third runway

The UK’s Tory government has given the green light to the construction of what has long been seen as an essential third runway for the country’s busiest airport, London Heathrow, also known as Heathrow Airport. The need for expansion of capacity of airports located near London has been the topic of heated debate for some considerable time and the desire to expand the capacity of Heathrow, in particular, discussed for over 20 years.

Major objections have come from local residents, while other campaigners have been critical of the increased levels of both noise and carbon dioxide pollution that will ensue from what is envisaged to be an increase in capacity of 700 planes a day. 

It is anticipated that the new runway will be completed by 2026 and the funding for the £14 billion (US$18.75 billion) cost will be funded from private sources. The airport is owned and operated by Heathrow Airport Holdings, which itself is owned by FGP TopCo Ltd., an international consortium led by Ferrovial and which also includes Qatar Holdings and China Investment Corporation.

According to Ferrovial, the Spanish infrastructure firm, the current airport is operating virtually at capacity and the creation of a third runway will increase the airport’s capacity from 85.5 million to 130 million passengers per annum. It is estimated that the expansion will create somewhere in the region of 60,000 new jobs, while generating up to £70 billion (US$94 billion) in economic benefits by 2050.

In relation to the original plans submitted for governmental approval, Transport Secretary Chris Grayling confirmed that 24 out of 25 improvements recommended by Transport Select Committee had been accepted, stating that the new runway would provide a “vital legacy” for the British economy.

Transoft Solutions completes acquisition of Airtopsoft

Airtopsoft was founded in 2006 when it first launched its flagship software, AirTOp. The Brussels-based company has since positioned itself as developers of advanced simulation solutions for decision making and analysis for airport, air traffic control and airspace professionals. 

Airtopsoft has customers around the world and lists airports, air navigation service providers, research labs, service companies, aircraft manufacturers and airlines among its clients.

Lufthansa LEOS puts second eTug into operation at Frankfurt Airport

Lufthansa LEOS, the ground handling services expert at Germany's major airports, has been using the first eTug at Frankfurt Airport since 2016. The subsidiary of Lufthansa Technik has now put a second one into operation. During its construction, some improvement potentials were taken into account, which the company made on the basis of the operational experience with the first eTug - both with regard to the technical design of the vehicle and the ergonomics for the driver.

The 700 kW electric vehicle developed by the Swedish company Kalmar Motor AB arrived at Lufthansa LEOS in Frankfurt in the spring of this year. After the necessary upgrade work, such as the installation of radio and transponders, it is now in use at Frankfurt Airport. 

The eTug ensures environmentally friendly maintenance and positioning towing as well as pushbacks of large passenger aircraft. It brings aircraft such as the Airbus A380 or the Boeing 747 purely electrically to their parking positions, to the hangar, to the gate or on the way using pushback and can move aircraft up to a maximum take-off weight of 600 tons. That's 15 times his own weight. 

By using the eTug, up to 75% of emissions can be saved compared to a conventional, diesel-powered aircraft tractor. The noise level of the eTug is also significantly lower. 

Japan Air Commuter converts one ATR 42-600 into one ATR 72-600

Japan Air Commuter (JAC) and ATR have announced the conversion of one of the ATR 42-600s that the airline currently has on order, into an ATR 72-600. 

The carrier and ATR have previously signed firm contracts for the introduction of nine ATR 42-600s. JAC, a regional subsidiary of Japan Airlines (JAL), introduced its first ATR 42-600 early in 2017 and today operates four of the aircraft. The delivery of the ATR 72-600 is expected before the end of this year.

The converted ATR 72-600 will be configured with 70 seats, adding seat capacity to the overall offer of the airline. Japan has many beautiful islands that both national and foreign tourists visit to enjoy their unique nature and countryside. The ATR aircraft, because of their size and ability to operate in small airfields and short runways, are perfectly suited for these regions.
