Asian airlines report high vaccination uptake among crew
By Aradhana Aravindan and Liz Lee August 20, 2021

SINGAPORE/KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 19 (Reuters) - Asian airlines are reporting high vaccination take-up rates among pilots and cabin crew as they wait for the region's tight pandemic-related border controls to be relaxed.

International travel in the Asia-Pacific region remains down about 95% from pre-pandemic levels, and concerns about the Delta variant have led to even stricter quarantines or flight caps in some places, leaving many air crew members idle and hoping for a recovery.

Singapore Airlines Ltd (SIAL.SI), Malaysia Airlines, Australia's Qantas Airways Ltd (QAN.AX) and Hong Kong's Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd (0293.HK) are among those requiring crew to be vaccinated or risk losing their jobs.

Singapore Airlines said 99% of active pilots and cabin crew had been vaccinated ahead of a Sept. 1 deadline, as well as all frontline ground staff. Malaysia Airlines said all active pilots and cabin crew had received vaccines as had 95% of Malaysia-based employees under a policy set in July.

Qantas on Wednesday said all employees must be vaccinated, while Cathay has mandated it for pilots and cabin crew by Aug. 31.

Cathay said on Thursday in a memo to staff that only vaccinated crews would be able to operate flights to countries Hong Kong considers "high risk" starting on Friday in return for a halving of quarantine time on return to one week.

However, hours later, it sent a second memo seen by Reuters saying the rules had not eased and crews would need to quarantine for 14 days when returning from countries like Britain.

Cathay said last week 99% of pilots and 91% of cabin crew had booked or received vaccinations. read more

Even in places like the Philippines where crew vaccinations are voluntary, carriers are reporting high take-up rates.

Philippine Airlines said 90% of flight crew were vaccinated, while budget carrier Cebu Pacific (CEB.PS) said 92% of its workforce, including 97% of pilots, were inoculated. AirAsia Philippines said 92% of its workers had received doses, including 97% of cabin crew.

In Taiwan, China Airlines Ltd (2610.TW) said all pilots and cabin crew had completed at least their first dose, while EVA Airways Corp (2618.TW) said more than 90% of air crew had received both doses. The Taiwanese carriers did not specify whether vaccinations were mandatory or voluntary.

United Airlines Inc (UAL.O) this month became the first U.S. airline to require COVID-19 vaccinations for all domestic employees, a move that was followed by Hawaiian Airlines [RIC:RIC:HAII.UL].

KUALA LUMPUR: National carrier Malaysia Airlines has recorded a 100 per cent vaccinated status for all its pilots and cabin crew on active roster, according to its parent company, Malaysia Aviation Group (MAG).

MAG, through its COVID-19 Immunisation Policy which started in July 2021, has made it compulsory for all employees to be vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine, except for those with health and medical reasons.

In a statement today, MAG said the group managed to accelerate the vaccination rate of its Malaysia-based employees, which currently stands at 95 per cent.

DHL to invest RM200mil on new auto-sort gateway at KLIA
By Ayisy Yusof - October 28, 2021 @ 3:50pm



DHL Express has set plans to invest RM200 million to build its first fully auto-sort gateway at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).

KUALA LUMPUR: DHL Express has set plans to invest RM200 million to build its first fully auto-sort gateway at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).

In a statement today, the international express service provider said this could be the largest investment in Malaysia to date, part of the company's expansion plans to meet the demands of growing logistics sector here.

DHL's new Kuala Lumpur Gateway will be equipped with new technologies and designed for optimal shipment processing efficiency, including a high-speed dimensioning and weighing system.

The gateway will have more than 250 closed-circuit television and high-speed X-ray screening systems in line with the company's commitment to enhance the security of customers' shipments.

Additionally, a 500 kilowatt-peak solar system and energy-efficient lighting systems will be outfitted at the gateway, as part of its commitment to achieving its zero emissions target by 2050.

The new facility will also see two dedicated aircrafts flying five times a week to and from Hong Kong and four times a week to and from Singapore.

Presently, DHL has six international gateways in Malaysia, namely Penang, Johor Bahru, Kota Kinabalu, Kuching, Subang, and Kuala Lumpur.

The company held a groundbreaking ceremony today to mark the commencement of the gateway construction, which is due to complete by the first quarter of 2023.

The even was jointly officiated by Transport Ministry secretary-general Datuk Isham Ishak and DHL Express Malaysia and Brunei managing director Julian Neo.

"We are pleased to see DHL capitalising on Malaysia's strategic location and good connectivity through the planned Kuala Lumpur Gateway, which bodes well in our quest to turn Malaysia into a transport and logistics hub in the region by 2025," he said in a statement today.

He said DHL's investment also represented an endorsement of confidence in Malaysia and a testament to the country's potential as the preferred logistics gateway in Southeast Asia.

Neo said DHL saw a significant rise in import and export volumes in Malaysia in recent years, even before the Covid-19 pandemic.

"The fully auto-sort gateway will enable us to manage the increasing growth of shipment and parcel volume driven by the rise of cross-border e-commerce, and in turn, help us to continue meeting Malaysian consumers' ever-growing demand for efficient logistical services," he said.

"The gateway will play a key role in supporting our continued focus to position Malaysia as a key logistics player within the region and will further strengthen Malaysia's link to the global logistics network," said Neo.

DHL Express Asia Pacific chief executive officer Ken Lee said the expansion demonstrated Malaysia's importance in its Asia Pacific network and the company's continued confidence in the country.

"The new Kuala Lumpur Gateway will strengthen our logistics capabilities to support the growth of trade in Southeast Asia as it occupies a strategic position along key trade lanes between Malaysia and countries like Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and China," he said.

Located at the KLIA Air Cargo Terminal 1 (KACT1), the 13,422 sq m gateway will nearly triple DHL's current facility's size, also located at KLIA.

It would also increase the shipment processing capacity by more than 400 per cent.

The facility will be equipped with an automated sort system that can handle 10,000 packages per hour, 24 hours a day, compared to the current 2,400 packages per hour.

This will be the second auto-sort facility in DHL's Southeast Asia network after Singapore.
