Near miss at Hong Kong airport prompts investigation
Hong Kong Airlines flight to Shanghai forced to urgently stop on runway to avoid hitting cargo plane
September 22, 2017
South China Morning Post Excerpt

Authorities are investigating an incident at Hong Kong International Airport after a departing passenger plane was forced to urgently halt on the runway to avoid colliding with a cargo aircraft, a spokesman has said.

The two planes were 1km apart when the incident happened at 8.55am on Friday, when Hong Kong Airlines flight HX236 was about to take off for Shanghai, the spokesman for the Civil Aviation Department said.

Pilots had to slam on the brakes when they noticed the Air Cargo Global B744 was also crossing the runway horizontally.

“The A333 airliner later flew to the destination according to the schedule,” he said on Friday. “No one injured in the incident and the operation was not affected.

Worker injured as cargo loader at AA plane catches fire in HK

An American Airlines plane was involved in a fire incident at the Hong Kong International Airport on Monday, prompting the cancellation of the flight.

Flight AA192 was being readied for its journey to Los Angeles when a cargo loader burst into flames, injuring a person who was operating the loading equipment.

Shortly after 5:40 in the evening a fire broke out beside the aircraft, which had been scheduled to depart at 6:10 pm.

According to witnesses, the blaze started at equipment that was moving cargo into the aircraft hold near the rear.

It is suspected that the accident happened due to oil leakage in the cargo loader, Apple Daily reports.

Unique Aviation Course Places More than 80 Students in Full Time Internships at HKIA
Press Release Excerpt

(HONG KONG, 28 September 2017) – More than 80 students are starting 12-month internships at the Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) after completing a course at the Hong Kong International Aviation Academy (the Academy) aimed at nurturing young people for careers in the aviation industry.

The “Certificate Course in Airport Services and Operations” is a collaboration between the Academy and the School of Professional and Continuing Education of the University of Hong Kong (HKU SPACE). The four-week course consists of lectures, site visits and sharing by industry experts, followed by jobs matching and placements arranged by the Academy. On completion, graduates receive a certificate from HKU SPACE equivalent to Level 3 of the Qualification Framework.

A ceremony was held today at the airport to mark the completion of the coursework for the programme’s first batch of students and the commencement of internships. Carrie Lam, Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region; Jack So, Chairman of Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA); Frank Chan, Secretary for Transport and Housing; Andrew Fung and S S Lee, Board Members of the AA; Fred Lam, Chief Executive Officer of the AA; Vivian Cheung, President of the Academy and Professor William Lee, Director of HKU SPACE, officiated at the ceremony. They were joined by representatives from the 15 airport business partners who offer placement opportunities, and parents of the students.

Mr So said, “The 12-month internships with full salary at companies around the airport make this course a unique one in Hong Kong. The Academy helps match students with jobs in the fields of ground services, aircraft maintenance, catering services and airport cargo, among others. With the continuous development at the airport and the aviation industry, the demand for talent will continue to be huge. We believe this kind of programmes will attract more young people to develop their careers at the airport.”

Mrs Lam said she appreciated the efforts AA and the Academy put into nurturing talent for the aviation industry. She expressed gratitude to the airport’s business partners for their active participation in providing valuable internships for students to unleash their potential. Mrs Lam said she sincerely hoped that the students would grasp this opportunity to put their knowledge into use and strive to achieve excellence.

Wow, wow! I cannot not believe this. Hopefully the ramp agent will be okay. He will be alright. I just saw the video from Facebook. The entire aircraft is taken out of service for a quite some time.
