Findings on airport near miss
Shanghai Daily
October 13, 2016



MISTAKES by staff at the air traffic control tower at Hongqiao airport were to blame for the near miss on Tuesday, during which a China Eastern Airlines passenger aircraft taking off nearly hit another plane, the nation’s civil aviation regulator said yesterday.

The Airbus 320 Flight MU5643 to Tianjin was taking off around noon on Tuesday when an Airbus 330 that had just landed, also owned by China Eastern, began taxiing across the runway.

The A320 pilot opted to continue taking off as the speed of his aircraft had reached more than 240 kilometers per hour. His plane safely flew over the A330.

“A preliminary investigation has found it was a ‘runway invasion,’ safety incident caused by mistake of the air traffic controller on the control tower,” the Civil Aviation Administration of China said on its official website.

The administration had spoken to the pilots and the air traffic controller, as well as examining the communication record, radar record, cockpit voice recorder and flying data of both aircraft to conclude the initial result, it said on its official website. Further investigation was under way.

The A320 pilot had reacted properly, and the airline was waiting for the final investigation result from the administration, an official with China Eastern said yesterday. The local carrier said that “the crew followed the orders from the air traffic controller.”

According to a detailed operation record, the A320 moved out from the boarding bridge at 11:54am and entered 36L runway at 12:03am following orders from the air traffic control tower. The controller then gave permission to take off a minute later, and the aircraft began its maneuvering.

The A320 pilot spotted the A330 was about to taxi across the runway when his speed had reached about 200 kilometers per hour. The pilot consulted with air traffic control and decided the best course was to continue taking off. He triggered maximum acceleration and flew over the A330.

Shanghai airport staff allegedly tried to cover up runway near-collision

http://www.globaltimes.cn/content/1011673.shtml

China's aviation authorities are investigating an incident at Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport in which control tower staff allegedly tried to cover up a near miss involving two passenger aircraft, news portal thepaper.cn reported on Sunday.

A China Eastern Airlines Airbus A320 flown by a pilot named He Chao nearly crashed into a China Eastern A330 as it taxied across a runway at 12 pm on October 11.

As the A320 took off to avoid the collision, it passed 19 meters over the plane below.

It is estimated that the planes were three seconds away from crashing, and only He's quick decision to accelerate and take off avoided the disaster. He has apparently received material rewards for his actions, thepaper.cn reported.

This incident was caused by human error as air traffic control tower staff made mistakes in estimating the airplanes' "dynamic conditions," said the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC).

Control tower staff apparently asked He not to report the incident.

In addition, the crew of the A330 did not pay enough attention to their surroundings and turned off their radio, cutting contact with the control tower in breach of regulations, according to the CAAC.

While thepaper.cn said that members of control tower staff have since been fired, the CAAC has not confirmed this and will announce the results of the investigation on Monday.

China punishes air traffic controllers for near miss in Shanghai

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/wires/reu...-Shanghai.html


SHANGHAI, Oct 21 (Reuters) - China's aviation regulator has punished 13 air traffic control officials for a near collision at Shanghai's Hongqiao airport this month when a passenger jet taxied in front of another plane that was taking off.

Aviation accidents have been on the decline in China in recent years, but the near-miss on Oct. 11 involving two China Eastern Airbus jets highlights the risks in managing the country's increasingly crowded skies and airports as more and more Chinese take to traveling.

The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) said the "serious" incident was a result of errors made by the air traffic controllers.

It issued punishments to 13 officials that included warnings, demerits, sacking and suspension of various air traffic control licences, CAAC said.

The pilot of the plane taking off, an A320 bound for Tianjin, was given a reward for "successfully resolving the crisis", the CAAC said on its website.

The Shanghai Daily reported last week that the A320 was already going over 200 kph down the runway when the pilot spotted the other plane about to taxi across its path. He hit the throttle and went airborne.

The other plane, an A330, had just landed, state media has reported.

In January, two China Eastern planes at Hongqiao airport clipped wings, state media reported. (Reporting by John Ruwitch; Editing by Nick Macfie)

Monster expansion on the way
http://www.caacnews.com.cn/1/5/20161...1_1204244.html
Runways 6, 7 and 8 as well as 2 new terminals will be constructed on reclaimed land. The total capacity of Pudong will soar to 160 million passengers.
In a longer term, Shanghai will explore alternatives to enlarge the city capacity to 290 million passengers. On this further expansion, they will explore either an even larger Pudong airport or the construction of a third large airport in the city since Hongqiao has no space for new expansions.

Civil aviation to probe Delta Air Lines’ runway incident
Shanghai Daily Excerpt
December 11, 2016

CHINA'S civil aviation regulator is investigating an incident at the Pudong airport where a US passenger aircraft crossed a runway without permission when another plane was about to take off.

The Delta Air Lines' Flight DAL295, which had just landed at the Pudong International Airport from Tokyo, began taxing across the runway at 7:27pm on December 8 without waiting for clearance from the air traffic controllers, the East China Regional Administration under the Civil Aviation Administration of China said in a statement.

On the same runway, a China Eastern Airlines' Flight MU723 from Pudong to Hong Kong was about to take off. The air traffic controller immediately ordered China Eastern to abort its takeoff, the administration said.

Fortunately, the Delta aircraft was far away from the China Eastern aircraft, and the incident did not affect the operation at the airport, said a press officer with the administration surnamed Qin.

That massive expansion is pretty much useless, unless the Chinese military yield more air routes in Chinese airspace for commercial aviation.

100 million passengers in a year put city in the big airport league
Shanghai Dail Excerpt
December 13, 2016

SHANGHAI yesterday received its 100 millionth air passenger this year, making the city the world’s fifth to handle more than 100 million annual air passengers.

Shanghai follows London, New York, Tokyo and Atlanta in doing so, the airport authority said.

The passenger tally is for both the city’s airports combined.

Mao Weiying, a local landscape designer who took a China Eastern Airlines flight MU592 from Moscow to Shanghai, became the landmark passenger at Pudong International Airport yesterday morning, the authority announced.

The city’s Hongqiao and Pudong international airports currently have four terminal buildings and six runways. They handled 11 percent passengers of all China’s airports by the end of 2015.

The Pudong airport, which mainly operates international routes, now has flights connecting with 250 cities. More than 11 percent of its passengers are transferring to other cities, which ranks it No. 1 among the airports on China’s mainland, the authority said.

The authority is renovating the east part of the Hongqiao airport, while expanding the Pudong airport by building the world’s largest satellite terminal building to further improve capacity and services, according to Li Derun, president of the airport authority.

The H-shaped new satellite terminals at the Pudong airport — S1 and S2 — will be connected with the existing terminals 1 and 2 via underground subways. The complex is expected to be completed by 2019 with 83 departure gates and 120 new parking stands for aircraft.

On completion, the new terminal will provide a faster transfer service and boost the punctuality rate of flights.

“The city’s two airports will be able to handle 120 million passengers and 5.2 million tons of cargo annually by 2020,” Li announced yesterday.

Turnover at the airports has benefited from the rising demands of budget carriers, as well as the newly opened Shanghai Disney Resort, said Zou Maogong, an expert with CARNOC.com, China’s largest civil aviation web portal.

Travel volume spikes during holidays
China Daily Excerpt
Jan. 7, 2017

More than 260,000 people entered and exited the country via Shanghai Pudong International Airport between Dec 31, 2016 and Jan 2, 2017, representing a yearly growth of about 11 percent, according to the latest statistics from the China Immigration Inspection of Shanghai Airport.

During the three-day holiday period, 75,000 Chinese mainland citizens boarded international flights at Shanghai Pudong International Airport, accounting for about 60 percent of the total outbound tourists from the city. In addition, more than half of them were traveling to destinations such as Japan, South Korea, Southeast Asia and the United States.

“I’ve gone on overseas trips with my family during most of the holidays as I think it is a good chance for everyone to get together and take a break while admiring another country’s scenery and savoring their cuisine,” said Zhou Yunqin, a marketing director of a multinational company in Shanghai, who flew to Thailand with her family during the New Year’s Day holiday.

According to official statistics, the number of people departing and entering the country shortly before and after a holiday period has been growing in the past few years.

In addition, the number of days in 2015 where more than 100,000 tourists entered and exited the country via Shanghai Pudong International Airport was 26. In 2016, the figure grew more than five times to 144.

Hongqiao airport gets its biggest facelift since its opening in 1921
March 21, 2017
Shanghai Daily Excerpt



A newly renovated Terminal 1 building at Hongqiao International Airport will open to the public on Sunday, while the old T1 building will be closed for a reconstruction, the airport authority said yesterday.

All domestic and international flights at T1, mainly with China Eastern and Spring Airlines, will be moved to the newly open Building A terminal from Sunday.

The renovation project was launched in 2014 — the airport’s largest renovation since opening in 1921.

The building’s floor area had been expanded by almost 40 percent, said Dai Xiaojian, deputy president of the Shanghai Airport Authority.

“The higher ceilings will give the terminal a roomier and more welcoming feel,” Dai told a press conference. Moreover, passengers would be able to pass security checks and customs inspections more quickly, Dai said.

The T1 building has 42 international flights and 68 domestic flights daily.

Shanghai plans to build airport No. 3
Shanghai Daily Excerpt
April 12, 2017

SHANGHAI is planning a new airport for general aviation — which includes private and business jets — to relieve pressure on Pudong and Hongqiao, officials said yesterday.

It will serve both fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters and be situated away from the two airports, said Jiang Huaiyu, director of the East China regional administration of the national civil aviation watchdog.

The airport will also be used for flight training, agricultural aviation and air ambulance services.

“It is necessary for Shanghai to build a third airport to satisfy demand,” Jiang said on the sidelines of the 2017 Asian Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition at Hongqiao airport. The city government, airport authority and the administration have begun research on the plan, he said.

Jing Yiming, president of Shanghai Airport Authority, also said that “Shanghai is looking for a new site within the city to serve business jets.”
