Biman seeks loan proposals

Aviation Report

The national flag carrier Biman’s dream to have the Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft in its fleet is now just a step away from reality.
Once Biman Bangladesh Airlines successfully wrap up the deals to get financing partners on board by early next year, its 13-strong fleet will be richer by two American long-haul Dreamliner, 767-8, by November 2018.
And two more of these latest Boeing airplanes are also in the purchase pipeline, scheduled to be delivered to Biman by last quarter of 2019.
In a bid to ensure that Biman gets the deliveries on time, the airlines on November 29 floated “Request for Proposal” (RFP) seeking loan for financing of the delivery payments for the two Dreamliners.
Biman invited the RFP from reputed banks or financial institutions with experience of arranging and funding aircraft loans for financing of two 787-8 aircraft, popularly known as Dreamliner, scheduled to be delivered in August 2018 and November 2018.
Biman sought the proposals from prospective parties by January 28, 2018. It splits the loan arrangements into two categories — senior loan and junior loan. The financing shall be in US dollars for a minimum 144 months term with quarterly payments of principal and interest for up to US$ 250 million. Aggregate amount of financing will be 80 percent of US$ 250.00 million. This loan will be called as senior loan.
It also said there can be an offer of 20 percent (US$ 50 million) of the total amount and it will be termed as junior loan. The tenure of this kind of loan will be sixty months minimum.
As per the purchase agreement with Boeing, pre-delivery payment (PDP) of approximately US$ 136.28 million has already been paid to Boeing for two 787-8 aircraft supported by Sovereign Guarantee.
Biman Bangladesh Airlines signed an agreement with Boeing on April 22, 2008 for purchase of new generation four 777-300ER and four 787-8 aircraft. Another agreement was also signed with Boeing on May 30, 2008 for purchase of two 737-800 aircraft.
Biman already took deliveries of four 777-300ER in 2011 and 2014 and two 737-800 in November and December 2015.
The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is a long-range, mid-size, wide-body, twin-engine jet airliner developed by Boeing Commercial Airplanes. Its variants seat 242 to 335 passengers in typical 3-class seating configurations.
It is Boeing’s most fuel-efficient airliner pressed into commercial flight service in late 2011 and the world’s first major airliner to use composite materials as the primary material in the construction of its airframe.
The 787 has been designed to be 20 percent fuel efficient than the 767 it is to replace.
The 787 Dreamliner’s distinguishing features include mostly electrical flight systems, a four-panel windshield, noise-reducing chevrons on its engine nacelles, and a smoother nose contour.
It shares a common type rating with the larger Boeing 777, allowing qualified pilots to operate both models, due to related design features. Established in February 1972, Biman is currently operating flights to seven domestic and 15 international destinations. Out of the international destinations, Biman operates to two destinations in the Saarc region, four destinations in the South East Asia, eight destinations in the Gulf and Middle-East and one destination in Europe.
It’s 13-craft fleet includes four 777-300ER, two 777-200ER, one A330-200, four 737-800 and two Dash8-Q400 aircraft.

Vietnam positions Phu Quoc as new luxury tourism destination in south-east Asia

Tourism Report

JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay is leading the way in Vietnamese tourism

Home to stunning beaches and one of the world’s most creatively ambitious new luxury design hotels, the Vietnamese island of Phu Quoc is on the up in the hospitality sector.
With new flight connections via TUI Airways and Bangkok Airways, complementing Vietnam Airlines’ existing daily services, and major ongoing investment in tourism infrastructure, the destination is set to become a leading attraction in south-east Asia.
Moreover, it offers beautiful beaches blessed with almost year-round sunshine, and with no need for a visa, it is easy to see why Phu Quoc is set to be top of the luxury travel class this winter.
Named Asia’s Leading New Resort soon after opening earlier this year, Vietnam’s fantastical, academia-inspired JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay is the spectacular, award-winning vision of ‘the Willy Wonka of hotel design’, famed architect and designer Bill Bensley.
Letting his imagination run wild, Bensley dreamt up the fictional ‘Lamarck University’ as the backstory for the resort - and the collegiate vibe is evident at every turn.
Guestrooms are divided among various faculties such as the Zoology Department, entered via gates flanked by elegant statues of elephants and lounging leopards; or the Department of Conchology (the study of shells), overlooking the Insta-iconic shell-shaped infinity pool.
There’s even a daily timetable of ‘extra-curricular activities’ around the resort campus, and exclusive ‘Field Trips’ to explore and discover Phu Quoc.
The hotel has also been selected as host for the World Travel Awards Grand Final 2017.
Identified by the Vietnamese government as a key tourism hotspot, Phu Quoc is a southern island gem which is already benefiting from its status as a Special Economic Zone.
Major investment in tourism infrastructure - including the redevelopment of the island’s airport, new highways, a new international passenger port, and a wave of new luxury hotel developments - are paving the way for Vietnam’s ‘Emerald Isle’ to establish itself as Asia’s hottest new destination for connoisseurs of luxury travel.
The opening of JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay coincided with a surge in international tourist arrivals to the island, which rose by 77 per cent year-on-year in the first six months of 2017.
This trend is set to continue as significant new air links bring Phu Quoc closer than ever.
Already easily accessible to UK travellers thanks to national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines’ daily flights from Heathrow to Vietnam, this month also saw the launch of the TUI Airways’ new weekly nonstop charter service, as well as a new Bangkok Airways flight from the Thai capital four times per week.
For now though, Phu Quoc remains a ‘fresher’ on the tourism scene, still able to offer charming local villages, bustling markets, rich jungles and reefs teeming with wildlife, and those elusive stretches of unspoilt powdery beach.
With its paradisiacal private setting on Phu Quoc’s ‘ice cream’ beach; a choice of stunning rooms, suites and private pool villas; and an inspiring ‘curriculum’ of experiences from award-winning spa treatments to cultural activities; JW Marriott Phu Quoc is ideally suited for romantic getaways and family holidays alike.

Boom Supersonic Teams up with Japan Airlines

Aviation Report

Denver-based Boom Supersonic has found a valuable new partner in its quest to make supersonic commercial flight a reality, as the company this week announced a strategic investment from Japan Airlines. Specifically, JAL is pitching in $10 million to help Boom develop its Mach-2.2 airliner, but the partnership also allows the airline’s leadership to offer Boom’s visionaries decades of industry experience.
The partnership is only news to the public, however, as the two companies are already very familiar with each other.
 “We’ve been working with Japan Airlines behind the scenes for over a year now,” said Blake Scholl, founder and CEO of Boom Supersonic. “JAL’s passionate, visionary team offers decades of practical knowledge and wisdom on everything from the passenger experience to technical operations. We’re thrilled to be working with JAL to develop a reliable, easily-maintained aircraft that will provide revolutionary speed to passengers. Our goal is to develop an airliner that will be a great addition to any international airline’s fleet.”
In addition to a strong emphasis on the passenger experience, JAL is working with the company on refining the aircraft design. Boom officials previously announced in March they were ready to begin developing a supersonic demonstrator, following a successful round of funding that totaled $33 million.
At the Paris Air Show in June, Boom announced 76 firm aircraft orders, and this partnership gives JAL the opportunity to pre-order up to 20 aircraft. “We are very proud to be working with Boom on the possible advancement in the commercial aviation industry,” said Yoshiharu Ueki, President of Japan Airlines. “Through this partnership, we hope to contribute to the future of supersonic travel with the intent of providing more time to our valued passengers while emphasizing flight safety.” Boom’s supersonic aircraft will offer a maximum range of 5,178 miles for 45-55 passengers in a business class setting. Entry into service is still slated for the mid-2020s.
