Chengdu, China

China (People's Republic of China) was established in 1949, it covers an area of 9,560,980 sq km, its population is 1,265 million, its capital city is Beijing, and its official language is Chinese.

March 2010: Tibet Airlines (TBZ) was approved by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) (CAC).

April 2010: Tibet Airlines (TBZ), with a registered capital of 280 million yuan/$41.2 million US dollars, is headquartered at Konggar Airport in Tibet's capital, Lhasa, and provides domestic cargo and passenger services, said Cheng Hui Head of the Preparatory Team for Tibet Airlines (TBZ).

(TBZ) will have 20 airplanes within the 1st 5 years of operation and the airlines fleet will expand in line with market demand, said Cheng. "Our top jet airplane choices are 737-700 and A319 airplanes." All the planes will be modified to adapt to the plateau environment, and flights will begin in mid 2011, Cheng said.

He said most employees will be recruited locally from Tibet.

State-owned Tibet Investment Company Ltd will own a 51% stake in the company while the remainder will be held by 2 Lhasa-based investment companies, Sanli (39%) and Ruiyi (10%).

The establishment of Tibet Airlines was approved by the General Administration of Civil Aviation in March, amid robust growth in Tibet tourism. High mountains make it extremely difficult to develop road traffic on the Tibetan plateau which is around 4,000 m in altitude on average. This makes it more efficient to travel by air in Tibet.

The Tiber Autonomous Region has 5 airports (Lhasa, Qamdo, Nyingchi, Ngari, and Shigatse) with a 6th under construction in Nagqu.

Currently, Air China (BEJ) has a 50% share of Tibet's aviation market.

June 2010: The "Independent" news service reported that visitor numbers to the Buddhist region have been hit in recent years after China banned foreign tourists from visiting after deadly anti-Chinese riots erupted in Lhasa and across the Tibetan plateau in March 2008.

Beijing again barred foreigners in March last year during the tense 50th anniversary of a failed 1959 uprising against China, that sent the Dalai Lama, the Tibetan spiritual leader, into exile.

But the local government has been slashing the cost of holiday packages and promoting new tourism spots to draw visitors back to the impoverished area.

Last year, 5.61 million tourists visited Tibet and the region earned 5.6 billion yuan in tourism revenue, both up nearly 150%, according to the local tourism administration. In the 1st quarter of this year, a total of 177,000 tourists visited the picturesque region, up +27.8% from the same period a year ago, official data showed.

June 2011: Tibet Airlines (TBZ) is a start-up that launched domestic passenger and cargo services from Lhasa.

(IATA) Code: TV. (ICAO) Code: TVA - (Callsign - TIBET).

Parent organization/shareholders: Tibet Autonomous Region Investment Company (51%); Tibet Sanli Investment (39%); and Tibet Ruiyi Investment (10%).

Main Base: Lhasa Gonggar Airport (LXA).

Destinations: Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport, Chengdu; Chongqing Jiangbei International Airport, Chongqing; Llasa Gonggar Airport (LXA), Lhasa; and Ngari Gunsa Airport, Shiquanhe, Ngari (Ali).

The Tibet autonomous region has 5 airports in Lhasa, Qamdo, Nyingchi, Ngari and Xigaze. A new 1 is under construction in Nagqu.

July 2011: Air China (BEJ) invested CNY86.8 million/$13.5 million to take a 31% stake in Lhasa-based start-up Tibet Airlines (TBZ), which officially launched operations this month. The move is part of (BEJ)'s continued expansion into West China.

(BEJ) purchased the stake from the Tibet Autonomous Region Investment Company, which originally held 51%. (BEJ) also sent pilots (FC), cabin crews (CA) and technicians (MT) to (TBZ) for its formal launch.

Tibet Airlines (TBZ) currently operates 1 A319 on routes from Lhasa to Ali, Chengdu, and Chongqing. 2 additional A320s are slated to be added to the fleet in August and September. It plans to expand its fleet to 20 airplanes in the next 5 years.

(TBZ) expects to open a new route to Beijing at year end and eventually hopes to operate international routes.

(TBZ) launched services by operating its 1st jet flight service from Llasa Gonggar Airport to Ngari Gunsa Airport, at Shiquanhe, Ngari. (TBZ) intends to start flights to Beijing and Shanghai by the end of 2011.

A319 (4766, D-AVYH) delivery - - SEE ATTACHED PHOTO - - "TBZ-A319-2011-07."

October 2011: A319-115 (4846, B-6438), ex-(D-AVWQ) delivery.

January 2012: In its 1st year of operation, Tibet Airlines (TBZ) transported 397,000 passengers.

May 2012: Tibet Airlines (TBZ) starts flying from Lhasa to Bangda.

November 2012: China’s Tibet Airlines (TBZ) has taken delivery of its 1st A319 assembled at the Airbus (EDS) Tianjin Final Assembly Line (FALC). A319-115 (5157, B-6425) is the 5th A319 to join the all Airbus (EDS) fleet operated by (TBZ). (TBZ) received its 1st A319 in July 2011 in Hamburg, Germany.

The A319 will operate from Lhasa Gongga Airport, which at 12,000 feet in altitude is 1 of the world’s highest. It will fly the route between Lhasa and Shenzhen in Southern China with a stop-over in Chengdu, Southwestern China.

The newly introduced A319 is certificated for high altitude airport operation and Required Navigation Performance – Authorization Required (RNP-AR) and Satcom installed.

(RNP-AR) procedures represent today the most modern navigation technique, allowing the airplane to fly precisely along a predefined route using on-board navigation systems and the (GPS)-based ‘Global Navigation Satellite System’ (GNSS). (RNP AR) is especially important for airlines operating in and out of high altitude airports. Tibet Airlines (TBZ) has selected Quovadis, an Airbus (EDS) subsidiary, as its strategic partner for its (RNP-AR) operations.

“The new A319 will fly between Shenzhen and Lhasa and contribute to further development of the 2 areas”, said Yin Huixin VP of Tibet Airlines (TBZ).

The (FALC) in Tianjin is based on the latest state-of-the-art (EDS) single aisle final assembly line in Hamburg, Germany. The airplanes delivered in China are assembled to the same standards as those assembled and delivered in Europe. Airbus (EDS) has delivered 105 Tianjin assembled A320 Family airplanes to 11 operators since the inauguration of the Final Assembly Line (FAL) in 2008, which is the 1st (EDS) (FAL) outside Europe.

June 2013: A319-115 (5563, B-6443), ex-(B-518L) delivery.

October 2013: Air China (BEJ) has now acquired a 31% stake in Tibet Airlines (TBZ) for 86.8 million Yuan/$14.18 million, becoming (TBZ)'s 2nd largest shareholder.

(TBZ) currently flies to 24 destinations in China. Currently, no non-Chinese carrier flies into Lhasa, making the tickets on this leg rather difficult to obtain, especially during the summer season. Tibet Airlines (TBZ) competes with Air China (BEJ), China Eastern Airlines (CEA), Chongqing Airlines, Sichuan Airlines (SIC), and Xiamen Airlines (XIA) on routes within China. International flights are planned to Kathmandu, Nepal.

April 2014: Lhasa based Tibet Airlines (TBZ) from the Tibetan Autonomous Region of China has taken delivery of its 1st A319 with Sharklets. The airplane which was handed over at the Airbus Tianjin Delivery Center (ATDC) joins Tibet Airlines (TBZ)'s existing fleet of 8 existing A319s. The airplane is the 165th assembled at Airbus (EDS)' Tianjin Final Assembly Line (FALC).

The A319 is powered by (CFM56-5B) engines and features a comfortable 2 class cabin, seating 128 passengers with 8C in business class and 120Y in economy.

(TBZ)'s base is Gongga Airport, Lhasa, is 1 of the world's highest airports at an altitude of 12,000 feet. The new A319 is certificated for high altitude airport operation and Required Navigation Performance - Authorisation Required (RNP-AR) and Satcom is installed.

(RNP-AR) procedures represent today the most modern navigation technique, allowing the airplane to fly precisely along predefined routes using on-board navigation systems and the (GPS)-based "Global Navigation Satellite System" (GNSS). The high accuracy provided by (RNP-AR) is especially important for airlines operating in and out of airports in mountainous regions. Tibet Airlines (TBZ) has selected Airbus ProSky, an Airbus subsidiary, as its strategic partner for its (RNP-AR) operations.

Sharklets are made from light-weight composites and are 2.4 m tall. They are an option on new-build A320 Family airplanes and standard on all members of the new A320neo family. They offer operators up to -4% fuel burn reduction on longer range sectors and provide the flexibility of either adding an additional +100 nautical miles range or increased payload capability of up to +450 kgs.

The (FALC) in Tianjin is based on the latest state-of-the-art Airbus single aisle final assembly line in Hamburg, Germany. The airplanes delivered in China are assembled to the same standards as those assembled and delivered in Europe. Airbus (EDS) has delivered 165 Tianjin assembled A320 Family airplanes. The airplanes are in service with 13 Chinese and Asian airlines.

August 2014: In recently years, Tibet's civil aviation witnessed a continuous increase by double digits. According to statistics, the Tibet Bureau of the (CAAC) registered about 1.32 million passengers in the 1st half of this year, up +19.8% year on year. Meanwhile, under the preferable policies of central government and the constant improvement in capacity and network connectivity, the aviation authority predicted that the number will be >3 million in 2014.

Currently, there are 8 airline companies serving in Tibetan airports, opening 54 air routes to 31 cities.

(CAAC) Deputy Director General Zhou Laizhen said that a proposal issued by the (CAAC) recently suggested to perfect Tibet's airport distribution among cities and counties and accelerate airport reconstruction and expansion by combining the formulation of "2030 National Layout Plan of Civil Airports."

The (CAAC) will support Linzhi Airport (LZY) to develop as Tibet's 2nd air corridor. Airline companies are being encouraged to launch direct flights from Linzhi to various cities, including Beijing, and primary cities in the Yangtze River Delta and Pearl River Delta. Moreover, low cost carries (LCC) are being urged to settle down in Tibet or operate Tibet-bound flights. Airlines that can set up their air bases in Lhasa and Linzhi are warmly welcomed.

In addition, Tibet Airlines (TBZ) hopes to introduce airplanes applicable for plateau flight to launch more new routes.

China’s Tibet Airlines (TBZ) is expected to launch Himalaya Airlines in conjunction with Nepal’s Himalaya Aviation Investment Company and Nepal’s Yeti Air International.

The new venture, which is scheduled to launch October 28, has a registered capital of $25 million. The 2 Nepalese companies hold a 51% stake and Tibet Airlines (TBZ) holds a 49% stake.

Its 1st route will be Kathmandu - Lhasa, followed by service to Chengdu.

Himalaya Airlines plans to lease at least 3 Airbus A320s in the 1st year, expanding the fleet to 5 airplanes in the 2nd year. Over the next 5 years, the new carrier expects to expand its fleet to 15 A320 airplanes. After that, it would consider investing $1 billion to $1.5 billion to purchase wide body airplanes.

“We will put wide body aircraft into service on the sector based on the travel demand,” Tibet Airlines (TBZ) Chairman Cheng Yiru said, adding that Himalaya Airlines will employ at least 1,000 people and boost tourism to Nepal.

Tibet Airlines (TBZ) (from the Tibetan Autonomous Region of China) is based at Lhasa Gongga Airport and is 1 of the world’s highest airports at an altitude of 12,000 ft. It launched operations in 2011 and currently operates a fleet of 9 A319 airplanes. It connects 24 destinations within China.

March 2015: 2 A319-115 (6380, B-6473; 6391, B-6475), EX-(B-517L & B-518L), deliveries.

May 2015: China’s Tibet Airlines (TBZ) is awaiting approval from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) to open new international routes, which have not yet been disclosed.

Tibet Airlines (TBZ) (from the Tibetan Autonomous Region of China) is based at Lhasa Gonggar Airport, 1 of the world’s highest airports at an altitude of 12,000 ft. It launched operations in 2011 and operates a fleet of 9 Airbus A320 airplanes. Currently, (TBZ) connects 27 destinations within China.

“We are scheduled to introduce 2 airplanes this year and take delivery of +5 more new airplanes next year in which there will be 1 A330 that is expected to operate international routes,” (TBZ) Managing Director Bai Weisan said, adding (TBZ) has maintained consecutive profit over the past 3 years.

Bai also noted the joint venture Himalaya Airlines (which it plans to launch with Nepal’s Himalaya Aviation Investment Company and Nepal’s Yeti Air International) has recently received approval from the Nepal aviation authority. However, the new venture launch will most likely be postponed due to the recent earthquakes in Nepal.

Himalaya has a registered capital of $25 million. The 2 Nepalese companies hold a 51% stake and Tibet Airlines (TBZ) holds a 49% stake. Its 1st route will be Kathmandu - Lhasa, followed by service to Chengdu.

A319-115 (6588, B-6480), ex-(D-AVYE) delivery.

July 2015: Tibet Airlines (TBZ) began operating 2 new air routes linking Lhasa, the capital of Tibet Autonomous Region, with 2 other domestic cities on July 10, authorities said.

A daily route connecting Lhasa with south China's Shenzhen City, Guangdong Province leaves Lhasa at 11:30 am and arrives in Shenzhen at 3:20 pm. The return flight leaves Shenzhen at 4:25 pm and arrives in Lhasa at 8:45 pm.

Another route linking Lhasa with central China's Changsha City, capital of the Hunan Province will be operated every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. It will leave Lhasa at 12:10 pm and arrives in Changsha at 3:00 pm. The return flight leaves Changsha at 3:50 pm and lands in Lhasa at 7:00 pm.

Both routes are the only direct flights linking Lhasa with Shenzhen and Changsha, according to Lin Mingjing, Manager of Tibet Airlines (TBZ) Marketing department. "They will provide more choices for passengers."

Tibet Airlines (TBZ) is the 1st airline company based in Tibet. Launched in 2011, (TBZ) has networks covering major inland cities including Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing, and Hangzhou.

The 1st A320-214 (6626, B-1682) for Tibet Airlines (TBZ) was delivered from Airbus (EDS) Toulouse, France on July 3.

August 2015: "Tibet Celebrates 50 Years of Flight" by Xinhua, August 12, 2015.

Flying a plane over the "roof of the world" is no easy task.

High terrain and severe weather once made Tibet, with an average altitude of 4,000 meters above sea level, off-limits for aircraft.

Stories of daring American pilots (FC) in the 1940s who flew along the Hump Route over the Himalayas to transport military supplies still resound. >500 aircraft and 2,000 pilots (CA) were lost to the mountains during World War II.

Tibet marks the 50th anniversary of regular flights this year.

Gyazhugling Village in Lhasa, Tibet's capital, is a perfect example of how planes can change lives.

Located just outside Lhasa Konggar Airport, Gyazhugling was once wild marshland with only a few herdsmen. Since 1966, it has grown into a community of 1,000 residents, with 2 schools, a clinic, and a cluster of hotels and supermarkets.

With a 4,000 m runway, Konggar airport transports thousands of passengers every day. For many tourists, Gyazhugling is their 1st stop.

Tibet now has 5 airports, 1 in Lhasa, and the others in Shigatze, Chamdo, Nyingchi, and Ngari, which operate 58 flights to other Chinese cities, and also to Kathmandu, capital of Nepal.

In the past 50 years, Tibet's airports had 206,000 takeoffs and landings, and a total of 24.71 million passengers and 330,000 tons of cargo have been transported via the region.

Planes have brought tourists, boosted spending, carried agricultural produce to buyers thousands of miles away, and provided medical evacuation for herdsmen who live in the plateau hinterlands.

Aviation officials who have witnessed these changes credit the progress to strict attention to aviation safety and heavy investment.

In 1955, the central government decided to open an air route between Beijing and Lhasa, but it took another decade to make the flight happen.

"I remember there were endless tests and training. No one dared to put a plane and passengers over Tibet unless it was 100% safe," said Li Shunhua, former Party Secretary of the Tibet Civil Aviation Bureau.

According to a national plan for Tibet's development, in the next 5 years, the number of flights between Tibet and other cities will increase to 95. Annual passenger volume will reach 6.6 million by 2020.

September 2015: News Item A-1: Tibet marks the 50th anniversary of regular flights this year. During the celebration of 50 years of flight to Tibet, the Civil Aviation Administration of China and the government of Tibet Autonomous Region have reached agreement to boost its civil aviation development, encouraging airlines to launch more international services linking Lhasa to SE Asia and South Asia.

According to the agreement, Tibet's air route network will be expanded. The new route connecting Chengdu to Lhasa will be launched with (CAAC)'s support and the frequency of Chengdu - Linzhi will also be enhanced. Flight schedules will show favor to Tibet-bound flights.

Airline companies are encouraged to launch direct flights from Tibet to Beijing, Tianjin, and Hebei, the cities that provide direct assistance to Tibet, as well as the cities in the Yangtze River Delta and Pearl River Delta.

In the meantime, airport layout will be improved in the region. The Tibet government and the (CAAC) will make joint efforts to develop Lhasa Gongga Airport (LXA) into an air hub, and build Nyingchi Airport (LZY) as Tibet's 2nd air corridor. Meanwhile, Qamdo Bamda Airport (BPX), Ngari Gunsa Airport (NGQ), and Shigatse Peace Airport (RKZ) will improve their service functions. A series of preliminary project of new airports in Tibet will be sped up, along with the key project and support facility construction at Nyingchi Airport.

News Item A-2: Tibet will encourage airlines to launch more domestic and international flights serving the SW region to boost its pillar tourism industry, the Chairman of the regional government said. The regional capital Lhasa is aiming to be "an international cultural and tourism city," said Losang Jamcan during the Second Tibet Tourism & Culture Expo, a 3-day event which opened in Lhasa this month.

The only direct international flight into Lhasa is from Nepal's Kathmandu. The government believes that with more flights and better infrastructure, attractions like the scenic prefecture of Nyingchi in SE Tibet and the Gangdise mountains in SW Tibet can be powerful draws. Gangdise is a destination for Buddhist pilgrimages.

Tibet will accelerate the construction of highways and airports, said Losang Jamcan. He said Tibet will also tap the "Belt & Road" project bolstering Asian trade and infrastructure to "open the door of tourism and cultural exchange with south Asian countries."

Tibet welcomed 14.3 million tourists in the 1st 8 months of 2015, generating 19 billion yuan/US$3 billion in revenue, according to the local tourism development commission.

Tourism contributes 1 5th to the region's Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The region aims to attract 17 million tourists this year.

A319-115 (6715, B-6481), ex-(D-AVYI), delivery.

January 2016: The Tibet Autonomous Region in SW China saw a record 3.63 million air passengers in 2015, up +15.2% from the previous year, regional civil aviation statistics show.

The plateau region opened +13 new air routes last year, bringing its operating routes to 63. The number of cities linked to Tibet via air rose by +7 to reach 40.

5 airports in Tibet handled >36,000 landings and take-offs and cargo throughput of 29,000 tons in 2015, an increase of +16.8% and +16.3% year-on-year, respectively.

Tibet's civil aviation industry has been growing rapidly with a total investment of >3 billion yuan/US$457 million, becoming an important driver for the regional economy.

During the 13th 5-Year (2016 - 2020) period, Tibet will develop air express routes between the regional capital Lhasa and Chengdu, capital of neighboring Sichuan Province, and will open more air routes to other domestic cities, according to a regional civil aviation official.

Tibet will also encourage airline companies to open routes between Lhasa and Southeast and South Asian countries, said the official.

March 2016: Himalaya Airlines (a joint venture (JV) of China’s Tibet Airlines (TBZ), Nepal’s Himalaya Aviation Investment Company and Nepal’s Yeti Air International) is expected to launch its inaugural flight from Kathmandu to New Delhi in April.

The new venture has a registered capital of $25 million; the 2 Nepalese companies hold a 51% stake and Tibet Airlines (TBZ) holds 49% ownership. It had originally planned to launch its inaugural flight in October 2014.

Himalaya Airlines took delivery of its 1st Airbus A320 from Tibet Airlines (TBZ) earlier this month. Initially it will operate 3 A320s and plans to expand its fleet to 15 aircraft in the next 5 years. It plans to open services to SE Asian countries, S Asian countries and Europe from Lhasa and Kathmandu. It also plans to open pilgrimage routes, including flights to S Asian countries (Kathmandu - Lhasa - Ali) and Chinese mainland cities (Lhasa - Lumbini).

June 2016: Tibet Airlines (TBZ) received its 1st A330-200 (242 tonne Maximum Take-Off Weight (MTOW)) for high altitude operations (Llasa Airport, Tibet is >3,500 m altitude) (1st of type to be received in China. It is configured with 12C Business, 32PY Premium Economy and 235Y Economy passenger seats).

This A330-200 is the 1st wide body aircraft to be equipped with Required Navigation Performance with Authorization Required (RNP-AR) and the only wide body aircraft presently flying over Tibet's sky. The A330-200 is intended for international route expansion.

Tibet Airline (TBZ)'s all-Airbus (EDS) airplane fleet including 14 A319s and 2 A320s.

February 2017: Tibet Airlines (TBZ) took delivery of a brand new Airbus A330 aircraft at Lhasa Gonggar Airport on February 18, bringing its fleet size to 20 aircraft.

The new A330-200 (B-8950) aircraft, took off from Toulouse, France and landed smoothly in Lhasa at 12:13 pm.

This is (TBZ)'s 2nd wide body aircraft after the arrival of the 1st A330-200 in June 2016. (TBZ)' A330 is configured in a 3-class cabin layout (12C business, 32PY premium economy, 235Y economy) and deployed to open up new international routes.

(TBZ), the Lhasa-based carrier will fly the new A330 aircraft to the plains regions, including Chengdu - Sanya and other popular routes.

Tibet Airlines (TBZ) currently operates an all-Airbus fleet comprising of 14 A319s, 4 A320s and 2 A330s. (TBZ) is known for its high-altitude operations with its operating base at Lhasa Airport which is at >3,500 m altitude. It is expected to expand its fleet size to 25 by the end of 2017.

1 A330-243 (1771, B-8950), EX-(F-WWYV) delivery.

April 2017: Konggar Airport in Tibet, 1 of the highest-altitude airports in China, was able to accommodate a Tibet Airlines (TBZ) wide body Airbus A330 aircraft overnight for the 1st time, (TBZ) announced April 12th.

The 3,600 m high airport in Lhasa was able to accommodate the A330 after (TBZ)'s maintenance technicians (MT) solved the problem of re-starting the aircraft's engine in a low air pressure environment after an overnight stay.

A new oxygen diffusion device has been designed to increase air supply during the engine ignition process, (TBZ) said.

High-altitude airports (>2,438 meters above sea level) pose safety issues for pilots (FC) as low air pressure affects flight performance. All 5 airports in Tibet are classified as such.

August 2017: China's Tibet Airlines (TBZ) on August 8 started its direct flight service on the Chengdu - Kathmandu - Chengdu sector, establishing the 1st ever direct flight between the 2 cities.

(TBZ)'s plane TV 9899 departed from Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport at 6:16 pm local time (1016 GMT) and touched down at Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA), Kathmandu at 7:15 pm local time (1315 GMT), according to a press statement issued by Himalaya Airlines, General Sales Agent of Tibet Airlines (TBZ).

Lhasa-based Tibet airlines (TBZ) has 49% stake in Himalaya, a Nepal-based international airline company.

According to Himalaya Airlines, Tibet Airlines (TBZ) is conducting 4x-weekly on the route on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. (TBZ) operates its Airbus 319 on the route.

Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal, the aviation regulator, had granted permission to (TBZ) to fly on the route last month.

After conducting a successful proving flight on June 19, (TBZ) started the scheduled flights to Nepal starting from August 8.

It is the 5th Chinese airline entering into the Nepali sky after 4 Chinese carriers - Air China (BEJ), China Southern (GUN), China Eastern (CEA) and Sichuan Airlines (SIC).
