China's Spring Airlines rides high on overseas travel boom
Low-cost carrier finds success, but it now faces challenges from rivals
Wang Zhenghua's instincts on China's travel industry have proven visionary.
As China's middle class began to develop more than three decades ago, the businessman founded a travel agency with a focus on individual tourists rather than group travel. He followed that by launching China's first budget carrier, Spring Airlines.
Now his company is expanding into hotels, with locations in Japan and other parts of Asia.
In a candid moment of self-assessment last year, Wang told the Nikkei Asian Review that he is a cautious businessman, a modest but truthful admission.
Wang said he decided to open a hotel chain after a friend joked that Spring Airlines was sending vigorous-spending Chinese travelers overseas, helping foreign businesses make money.
The company has already opened one hotel near Nagoya in Japan's Aichi Prefecture, and it plans to expand the chain to 15 to 20 locations, including South Korea, Thailand and elsewhere, over the next three to five years.
The 73-year-old Wang, who guided Spring Airlines into China's largest low-cost carrier, is a popular figure in the Chinese media and business community.
In the early 1980s, while working as a civil servant in a small district in Shanghai, Wang made a bold move: Anticipating that individual travel would become popular among Chinese, he founded the Shanghai Spring Tour travel agency, concentrating on individual travelers rather than group tours.
Spring Airlines has confirmed the attraction of the low-cost, long-haul business niche to the Chinese LCC
Spring Airlines have acknowledged that it has a strong network to consider launching such a product in 2018. Privately-owned Spring Airlines currently operates a fleet of sixty-eight A320-200s with three more due for delivery on lease from AWAS in 2018. In terms of network, it offers regular flights to eighty destinations around China as well as Thailand, Japan, Cambodia, South Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore, Macau, Taiwan, Vietnam, and Malaysia.
Spring Airlines launched its latest international route with the commencement on 13 January of a twice-weekly (Mondays and Fridays) service between Shenzhen (SZX) and Johor Bahru (JHB).
The 2,577-kilometre route will be operated by the Chinese LCC’s A320s. Out of the airline’s 65 international routes, this is only the third to Malaysia. Japan is currently the best served market by Spring Airlines with 23 routes, followed by Thailand with 17 and South Korea with 10. Spring’s other two routes to Malaysia are both to Kota Kinabalu; a daily service from Shanghai Pudong and a three times weekly service from Shenzhen.
As a result of this new route Spring now has just under 4% of the China-Malaysia market as measured by weekly seat capacity, well behind market leaders AirAsia (32%), AirAsia X (25%), China Southern Airlines (12%) and Malaysia Airlines (10%).
