Passengers affected by Beijing thunderstorm

QINGDAO, April 19 (Xinhua) -- Thunderstorms hit Beijing from Wednesday evening to Thursday morning, causing quite a few alternate flight landing in Qingdao, a port city 800 km away from Beijing.

By 8 a.m. Thursday, more than 1,100 passengers destined to Beijing have been stranded, according to the Qingdao Liuting Airport.

These passengers were from Osaka, Tokyo, Shanghai, Haikou, Sanya, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Taizhou or Chongqing, said an airport spokesman, who stopped short of giving exact number of such flights.

The city's civil aviation and border control departments conducted a contingency plan Wednesday evening for accommodating the stranded passengers.

Weather forecast said thunderstorms would continue Thursday in Beijing, which might still disturb air traffic to and from the Chinese capital.

I am kind of curious if that contingency plan involved high-speed trains, given that Qingdao is a little more than 4 hours away from Beijing South with train.

Not exactly sure what that contingency plan was, but Qingdao is still 4.5 hours from Beijing by the fastest high-speed train service. I doubt the airlines would put the passengers onto trains. Once the weather clears, I expect the planes to take off and head back to Beijing.

Beijing flights thrown into chaos by rainstorms
The Standard
Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Flights between Hong Kong and Beijing were disrupted yesterday morning due to prolonged rainstorms in the capital.

Twelve flights to Beijing were delayed until 2pm, while one flight was canceled, a Hong Kong Airport Authority spokesman said.

Seven flights from Beijing to Hong Kong were also delayed, and one flight was canceled due to the extreme weather.

The rain also resulted in about 200 flights, both arriving in and departing the capital, to be canceled nationwide.

As a result of the disruption, Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development Gregory So Kam-leung had to scrap an official trip to Beijing.

The Hong Kong Airport Authority announced on its website that flights between the two cities were being affected by bad weather.

Travelers were advised to update their flight information before going to the airport.

The Beijing Capital International Airport also made a similar announcement on its website.

By 6pm yesterday, Beijing had received 26 millimeters of rainfall.

They were the heaviest rainstorms in the capital this year, according to the Beijing Meteorological Bureau.

Beijing is forecast to receive some fine weather today.

Incheon Airport named World's Best for 7th year
(Chosun Ilbo, May 25)


Quote:
Incheon International Airport was named the world's best airport for the seventh year running on Thursday at an event attended by around 500 guests in Singapore. The Airports Council International, an organization of around 1,700 airports around the world, announces its Airport Service Quality ranking every year.

"Incheon International Airport now faces new challenges," ACI secretary general Angela Gittens told the Chosun Ilbo before the award ceremony. It scored 4.95 out of five points, but competition is intensifying, she said, as rivals benchmark its achievements.

Singapore's Changi Airport came second with 4.86 points, while Beijing Capital International Airport overtook Hong Kong's Chek Lap Kok International Airport for the first time to take third place. Beijing Capital ranked fourth last year with 4.67 points, but scored 4.82 points this year. In 2008, it expanded its passenger terminal to handle 82 million visitors a year. Incheon can handle 44 million visitors a year.

Incheon also faces increasing opposition from European airports. "This year may be the last time we award the best airport prize," Gittens said.

The ACI's Asia-Pacific board of directors decided at a meeting on Wednesday to stop awarding the overall prize next year because European airports complained that Incheon dominates it even though there are many outstanding airports in the EU. But ACI will continue to award prizes according to region and airport scale.

Singapore and Incheon, I can understand, but based on my experience at PEK, while it's a great airport, I really disagree with it as better than Hong Kong. At least I never had an English barrier problem with most of the staff at Hong Kong.

I think this is how the methodology works for the annual Airport Service Quality:

SkyTeam, the global airline alliance and members China Southern and China Eastern today signed a Cooperation Agreement with Beijing Capital International Airport that paves the way for more customer-focused initiatives to be introduced at the airport.


Beijing Capital, which is forecasted to soon become the world's busiest airport, is home to both China Southern and China Eastern and is served by 10 of SkyTeam's 16 members. Each day, more than 38,000 passengers arrive and depart Beijing on 230 flights operated by SkyTeam airlines to 93 destinations worldwide.



Effective immediately, parties will further work together on improving processes that will enhance the SkyTeam customers' airport experience, particularly when transiting in Beijing. Current and future initiatives planned at Beijing airport include:


SkyPriority - A series of distinctively branded priority airport services offered to Elite Plus, First and Business Class customers. At Beijing Capital Airport these services were rolled out in March and include: priority check-in areas and baggage drop, priority service at transfer desks, priority boarding and priority baggage handling.


SkyTeam is the only airline alliance to ensure a common and consistent standard for priority services and has already implemented SkyPriority at over 550 airports around the world.


SkyPort - Delivering cost synergies for member airlines and a better airport experience for customers at shared locations worldwide. SkyTeam opened a co-located check-in facility at the airport in December 2011, offering 50 check-in desks, numerous self-service kiosks and dedicated check-in counters for premium passengers.



SkyTeam and China Southern plan to open a new SkyTeam-branded lounge for Elite, First and Business class passengers at Beijing international airport with China Southern.


SkyTransfer - With approximately 14 million SkyTeam passengers arriving and departing Beijing each year, this initiative will ensure seamless, straightforward transfers of passengers and their baggage from one member airline to another.


"Today's agreement builds on our efforts in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou to deliver a superior airport experience, that will underpin our position as the #1 alliance in the Greater China Region," said Michael Wisbrun, SkyTeam's Managing Director.



"Close cooperation with the airports we serve is essential to identifying issues, delivering solutions and finding new opportunities at SkyTeam hubs worldwide. This will ultimately enhance the airport experience for our customers."


The agreement is the third signed by the alliance and its members in China in 2012. Similar agreements were signed with Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport and Shanghai Pudong International Airport.

New Beijing airport pre-feasibility study submitted to the NDRC
(WCARN.com, July 3)

Quote:
News from the Party Congress of Beijing underway reported that, the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) is currently submitting the "New Beijing Airport Construction Pre-Feasibility Study Report" to the National Development and Reform Committee (NDRC) for approval. It is learned that the construction of the new Beijing airport will be completed in the next five years.

At the 11th Party Congress of Beijing, Zhang Gong, the party secretary and director of Beijing Municipal Commission of Development and Reform revealed that, the new Beijing airport will be positioned as an "integrated hub" airport.



"Beijing is currently working on all the preparations", said Zhang. Related work of the new Beijing airport has been expressed sufficiently in Liu Qi's report during the Party Congress.


It is reported that the construction of the new Beijing airport is to implement the requirements of the nation's 12th Five-Year Plan. The new airport will provide substantial potentials to accelerate the development of the southern Beijing area.



Not only will it considerably boost the capital's overall future development, but also exert positive influences to the urban system, spatial distribution, industrial development and infrastructure construction of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region.


Zhang said that the new Beijing airport & new air city project has received the highest attention from the State Council, the General Staff of the People's Liberation Army, CAAC, Beijing Municipal Government and the precinct government of the project - Hebei Province.


Besides the preparation for petition, intensive work has been done including plan promotion, infrastructure construction, as well as energy & road establishment in the project area.


It is also learnt that an evaluation meeting was held from Apr. 23 to Apr. 25 regarding the "New Beijing Airport Construction Pre-Feasibility Study Report" submitted to NDRC. The meeting concluded that the report mostly meets the design depth requirements.



In addition, the meeting gave prospects of the new airport's market positioning and provided suggestions to a number of aspects including the area transportation communication, external supporting facility establishment and airspace utilization & management.


The new Beijing airport, which is commonly known as the second capital airport, will be located in Yufa Town, Daxing Distrct, south of Beijing. The location is at the border of Nangezhuang Daxing District and Baijiawu, Guangyang District, Langfang, Hebei Province. The airport will sit in an area east of Beijing-Kowloon Railway, north of Yongding River, west of Langzhuo Highway & Jingtai Highway and south of Dali Road (Daxing Village - Lixian Town).The total investment is estimated to be 80.3 billion yuan.


According to the preliminary plan, the new Beijing airport is positioned as a major integrated hub airport, coupled with the Beijing Capital Airport to form the dual-airport system in Beijing.



A total area of 40 square kilometers are planned for the first phase of the airport construction which contains four runways, a 700,000 square meters terminal area and 220 gate positions. The airport will handle 650,000 flights annually with a total passenger turnover volume of 45 million.

So the Daxing Airport project is now seriously moving ahead, they definitely should plan a maglev line between the two airports to avoid the problem facing connecting passengers at Shanghai.
