Thank you SQ22!

Let's start the new year with more travel restrictions to Taiwan, which impact mainly on foreigners. It should not have a huge additional impact on the flying crowd, as the number of international travellers is still at an all-time low anyway:

The Taiwan government announced that it will ban arrivals from foreigners from Jan. 1, 2021, with a few exceptions such as foreign visitors holding resident visas, diplomats, business people with special entry permits, and spouses and children of Taiwanese citizens, and other persons with special entry permits. The same rules apply to persons from Hong Kong, Macau, and China.

Taiwan government suspends all passengers to transit via Taiwan from 00:00 01Jan, 2021 (Taipei Time, GMT+8).

Starting from Jan1, 2021 00:00(local time at the place of departure), all passengers arriving in Taiwan are required to provide a certificate of a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test result issued within three working days before boarding the flight to Taiwan. Starting on Jan. 15, passengers must present proof that an approved quarantine facility has been arranged, such as an official quarantine center or quarantine hotel. The quarantine facility must only contain one person.


It's interesting all transit passengers are banned, a change from the previous regulation (as long as the pax didn't leave the transit area inside Taipei Taoyuan and the transit was less than 8 hours iirc).

Cheers,
MN

China Airlines posted a (small) net profit for 2020 of around 5M USD, probably one of the few airlines in the black last year. Not a big sum, but hey! Most of the contribution is due to the favourable freight rate and the extensive usage of the cargo fleet, which still looks rosey for 2021.

In the news launch from the Taipei Times it was also reported that CI is looking at extending its reach in the European and Indian market and "improving its service to the US", while Senior VP Kao Shing-hwang (高星潢) has been promoted to the role of President of the airline.

CI never make s "large" profits, have they ever made more than @US$100 million ?? Any year which is black and not red is good for them!

Any news on more 777Fs or what they will replace the A333s with eventually? Are they delaying the A321neos? Is AE going to end up as an ATR fleet only?

CI A321neo still on track for delivery this year

Separately, the carrier discloses that its first Airbus A321neo, which it ordered during the 2019 Paris Air Show, is on track to be delivered this year.

The carrier had disclosed in 2019 that it would be taking delivery of the first example from 2021, with deliveries through 2022.

No idea, they still have a handful of owned 738s they took delivery of in the late 90s/turn century and the rest are leased this last decade, the youngest only delivered 2017.
Mandarin are down to 4 ERJ190s only now, even before covid they were winding down their jet fleet. I suspect they will become ATR only for domestic and lease in CI narrowbody metal as needed. Or go A220!!!! Especially since both CI and IT are becoming Pratt GTF operators.

In other news Ch Aviation says Tigerair to take first A320neo by end Q1 2021 which means anytime now.

Thanks! The 220 would be great - such a comfortable plane to ride. But I tend to agree they'll downsize to ATR only, which makes sense for their domestic ops to the outlying islands and the few remaining cross-country routes they still operate, where the E90 is probably too much of a plane anyway.

With IT - I never understood why they never tried to develop KHH in a small scale low-cost hub - it sits bang in the middle of a large urban area (Tainan-Kaohsiung-Pingtung) and it's close to tourist magnets such as Tainan and Kenting further south.

EVA Air announced on their social media channels that B-16703, the Sanrio “Hand in Hand” 777 will be returning to standard livery in May:

Farewell “Hand in Hand”!
Our Hello Kitty Jet "Hand in Hand" will be reinstated to standard livery on 5/16. The "Hand in Hand" jet has been working hard during the pandemic. Providing much-needed cargo transportation and delivering supplies across the globe. If you are located near SFO, you can enjoy a last look at the “Hand in Hand” jet in the SFO sky before mid-May. We are working hard to strengthen our service in North America and look forward to providing additional service options in the near future!

Think Taiwan should really aim for a travel bubble with AU and NZ. It is Covid free and is a pretty safe target for both AU and NZ

Anyone have an idea why EVA is doing so much better than Cathay? Is it because EVA somehow has a much more robost cargo network? Is it because Taiwan has 3x the population of of Hong Kong? They both have similar quarantine / border restrictions requirements.

The Taiwanese airlines have been able to find ways to make things work for them as their political environment has been comparatively stable. OTOH Cathay started having a tough time before COVID was even on the map and COVID only added fuel to the fire. Some businesses have been moving to other countries in the region and that premium O/D traffic is going to be gone forever for Cathay.

BR has a much smaller fleet than CX/KA. During the difficult times, they burn a lot less money on fixed expenditures.

While CX has a higher ATK than BR, BR have a higher freighter to pax fleet ratio. This also helps their bottom-line during the pandemic.

In 2020 compared to 2019, cargo for CX accounted for almost 2/3 of its operational revenue but was only up 16% YOY. 2019 cargo was only 16% operating revenue
For BR in 2020 it was similar , cargo was 2/3 revenue but they doubled cargo revenue from 2019 when it was only 20% revenue
For CI cargo in 2020 was 80% of their revenue and increased 70% but cargo was 30% of revenue in 2019
BrRcargo revenue was only 60% of CIs in 2020 (and 50% CIs in 2019)

Germany and Taiwan have signed a new air service agreement expanding the number of passenger flights between the two countries from 7 to 11 weekly, and cargo flights from 3 to 5 weekly with fifth freedom rights, as reported by FocusTaiwan-CNA yesterday.

CI had a daily flight to FRA prior to the pandemic, it'll be interesting to see if BR (or even Starlux) will try to enter the market if/when the air market recovers. MUC could also be an option for BR.

Eva is planning to increase the number of pax flights to north America to 30 per week, increasing SEA (5xw), NYC (4xw), ORD and YVR (2xw) and resuming IAH and YYZ with a weekly flight. The airline saw a 27% increase in passenger to/from the US in June and demand remains strong in all classes with virtually 100% LF across the board.

Also, the first three 77F will arrive in October, November and December respectively.

A few more details are available in this article on the Taipei Times.

According to the article, the 100% load factor is for business and premium economy. It doesn't mention standard economy class loads.

According to the article, it will be deployed to second-tier cities in Japan, South Korea and Southeast Asia.

Among the three mainline airlines in Taiwan, CI will have the lowest density.
CI: 12J; 168Y = 180
BR: 8J, 176Y = 184
JX: 8J; 188Y = 188

Anyone have news on how loads are holding up? This article was written when travel was increasing for vaccines which are now much more available throughout Taiwan. Also, arrival quarantine has recently been restricted to hotels and government facilities so the cost to travel has gone up.

JX has lie flat business seats, CI undoubtedly will be going same way, wondering what type they will use??
Presumably they will have the ACF cabin with just the wing exits like JX.

CI, BR not bleeding money and turning operating profits

https://www.flightglobal.com/strategy/t ... 70.article

For the quarter ended 30 June, China Airlines reported a 56% decrease in its operating profit, to NT$1.2 billion ($43 million).

Revenue for the quarter rose 12% year on year to NT$29.3 billion. However, the uptick in takings was outpaced by a 19.5% increase in costs and expenses, to NT$28.2 billion.

The SkyTeam carrier reported a net loss of NT$343 million, reversing the NT$2.5 billion net profit it reported in 2020.

As for EVA Air, its second-quarter operating profit rose significantly to NT$801 million, nearly four times higher than the NT$184 million profit it made in 2020.

The Star Alliance carrier saw a 25% increase in revenue, to NT$24.2 billion, while costs and expenses rose 22.3% year on year to NT$23.4 billion.

EVA Air swung back to a modest net profit for the period, at NT$144 million, compared to a NT$614 million net loss in 2020.

https://taipeitimes.com/News/biz/archiv ... 2003767311
In the first three quarters, CAL posted a net profit of NT$1.55 billion, or earnings per share of NT$0.28.
For the first three quarters, EVA posted a net loss of NT$569 million, or loss per share of NT$0.11, company data showed.

This tweet from the Aeronetwork reports that Eva is planning to launch Milan and Munich in 2022.

For Milan this is the second attempt after the one aborted due to the Covid pandemic last year. For Munich it would be first direct flight to Taiwan and putting to good use the recent extension of air travel agreement between Germany and Taiwan.

2 A321s this year and 10 more next. They are really phasing those 738s out fast!
Interesting they will use containers on the A321 . How many Asian carriers do that? Not even many N American carriers do, more popular in Europe.

I remember it was just yesterday when B737-800NG arrived to replace their B732/B734 fleet, now they are being replaced by A321neo. China Airlines B737-800NG fleet isn't very old too, the oldest being 21 years old, youngest 4.8 years old, majority is under 10 years old. With this new arrival, Boeing is being pushed out of Taiwan's narrowbody market, but remain dominant in long haul market. Guess you gain some, you lose some.

Really love the new regional cabin with all the earthy finishing, patterned carpet and blue features throughout the cabin, gives a calming vibe. Guess they went for Stelia Elysium model to compete head-to-head with JX's BMW Designworks Collins Diamond and SQ's Thompson Aero's Vantage.

if you look at BR and CIs financials on their website BR is also running about 2/3 of CIs revenue
