Hainan Airlines first in China to order Boeing Split Scimitar Winglets
Aviation Partners Boeing (APB) today announced that Hainan Airlines has committed to install Split Scimitar Winglets on 36 of its fleet of Boeing Next-Generation 737-800 aircraft. Hainan was the first airline in China to operate with APB’s Blended Winglet technology, and now will be the first airline in China to operate with APB’s latest product, Split Scimitar Winglets.
“Sixteen years ago APB welcomed Hainan Airlines as the first airline in China to install Blended Winglets on its aircraft,” said Patrick LaMoria, Aviation Partners Boeing executive vice president and chief commercial officer. “Since then, both Hainan and Blended Winglets have become an extraordinary presence worldwide in the airline industry. APB is very proud to continue this relationship with the introduction of Split Scimitar Winglets in China.”
Split Scimitar Winglets confirm Hainan’s commitment to providing exceptional value to its customers, through the implementation of efficient technology. Every flight with this technology reduces Hainan’s energy needs and the resulting pollutant emissions.
Hainan’s aircraft will be modified during routine maintenance visits at Hainan Airlines’ maintenance facility, HNA Technology, in Haikou. Installation tasks can be performed concurrently with most maintenance activities, allowing for a very efficient shop visit. Once installed, the Split Scimitar Winglets can reduce block fuel consumption by up to an additional 2.2%, resulting in fuel savings of about 140,000 liters per year per aircraft, and carbon dioxide emissions reduced by more than 350 tonnes. Once all 36 aircraft are modified, Hainan Airlines will save almost 5 million liters of fuel and 12,700 tonnes of emissions per year.
“Hainan Airlines recognizes the importance of investing in their fleet,” said Craig McCallum, APB’s senior director of sales and marketing. “They are committed to reducing fuel consumption, emissions, and costs by operating the most efficient fleet of narrowbody aircraft in all of Asia.”
Since launching the Boeing Next-Generation 737 Split Scimitar Winglet program APB has taken orders and options for 1,745 systems, and nearly 1,000 aircraft are now operating with the technology. APB estimates that its products have reduced aircraft fuel consumption worldwide by over 7.7 billion gallons to-date.

Hainan Airlines close to finalising scheduling on Beijing-Dublin flights
China's Hainan Airlines is close to agreeing a direct scheduled flight from Dublin to Beijing for the upcoming winter season, according to a number of sources.
Discussions have been under way for some time between the airline and Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) and the airline is close to finalising a schedule for the flights, the Sunday Independent has learned. The flight will operate on alternate days to Dublin and Edinburgh in Scotland and this has added complexity to the scheduling and slot negotiations, it is understood. Hainan Airlines is China's fourth-largest carrier and is owned by the huge HNA conglomerate, which also owns Dublin-based aircraft leasing firm Avolon.
Local Fine Gael councillor Tom O'Leary, who has campaigned for the direct flights, said that detailed negotiations were "progressing very positively".
"My understanding is that flights may possibly commence in October," he said. "Fingal has a wonderful opportunity to capitalise on the potential that this new flight destination offers. Local companies need to start planning now to avail of this opportunity."
A DAA spokesman said it "does not comment on whether or not it is in discussions with specific airlines in relation to potential new services".
Dublin is already undergoing a boom in eastbound traffic with the recent arrival of Qatar Airways adding to a strong presence of Middle Eastern carriers, including Etihad and Emirates.
But, to date, no airline has launched a direct route from the Far East to Ireland. But interest in Ireland to Asia routes has been growing. Last week, Japan Airlines flew the first-ever direct flight from Japan to Dublin, a one-off charter with 240 Japanese travel industry professionals on board.
But the Chinese market is seen as key for both tourism and business reasons. Tourism Ireland chief executive Niall Gibbons described a direct link with China as "vital".
"We have worked very closely with DAA on this and we put a proposal on the table in relation to joint marketing with Hainan and that is in place. We are very excited about the prospect of this flight," said Gibbons.
Tourism Ireland has already seen a significant increase in Chinese visitors this year, he said.

Hainan Airline launches high-fashion designer uniforms for cabin crew
Hainan Airlines hooked up with designer Laurence Xu to create a new, high-fashion look that takes its cabin crew to the next level.
The collection was launched at Paris Couture Week on 4 July, and takes inspiration from a traditional Chinese dress called a Cheongsam. Pieces also feature Chinese-influenced prints, such as the Roc – a mythical bird.
The uniforms blend influences from East and West. The looks are given a modern twist with Western additions, such as tailored coats and capes in muted grey and beret-style hats.
Xu wanted to combine "classical, time-honoured Oriental aesthetics and the silhouette of a modern Western suit” for the Hainan collection.
“The cooperation between Hainan Airlines and Lawrence Xu is industry leading,” said Xu Fei, brand director of Hainan Airlines. “We are not only creating a new uniform but also showing the internationalized image of our airline.
“Especially on international routes, we would like to let passengers know that China is modern and trendy.”
