I saw a special on the Discovery Channel last night on the amazing speed & engineering it took to build this airport...it was amazing!!
22 miles of high speed rail from downtown to the airport, a new seaside highway on reclaimed land, a new rail terminal downtown, two of the world's longest suspension bridges and the formation of one island out of two smaller and hilly islands for the airport itself.
I was very impressed with this project which took approxiamately 8 years to build.
Hong Kong should be very proud..!!

HKIA welcomes God of Fortune as December passenger number exceeds pre-SARS level 940 additional flights for Chinese New Year

(HONG KONG, 16 January 2004) - About 940 additional flights have been scheduled over the Lunar New Year holiday period from Saturday 17 January to Monday 2 February. The busiest day will be Thursday 22 January, the first day of the Year of the Monkey, with requests for 722 total flight slots, as against about 590 flights for an average day.
The most popular destinations for the additional flights by region are China (37 per cent), SE Asia (31 per cent) and NE Asia (31 per cent). The most popular cities include Taipei, Bangkok, Shanghai and Phuket.

Speaking at a ceremony to welcome the God of Fortune to Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA), as well as the unveiling of a safety couplet, Airport Authority Hong Kong Chief Executive Officer Dr David J Pang said, "The year ahead will see a recovery in the regional and local economy, and we are ready to capture the growth opportunities brought about by CEPA and the closer integration of the Pearl River Delta Region."
"Health and safety remain a challenge for the aviation industry and we need to be at all times vigilant. Safety is a cornerstone of our business. For all of us at the airport, our fortune ties in closely with safety."
As part of the safety awareness campaign, God of Fortune today visited business partners within the Airport Community to bring the message home, reminding airport workers of the importance of safety especially over the Chinese New Year period, when airport operation is very busy with many additional flights.

Dr Pang said the year 2003 had been a difficult year for the aviation industry. The number of passengers and flight movements in 2003 both saw a year-on-year decline. Passenger traffic dropped 20.3% to 27.4 million while flight movements fell 9.5% to 187,161.
He added that Hong Kong has been quick to recover from the impact of SARS. Passenger traffic at HKIA has surpassed pre-SARS level in December 2003, with 3 million passengers recorded in the month.
Cargo throughput was 249,000 tonnes, a remarkable increase of 15.8% compared with December last year. The growth was attributed mainly to the export boost to markets of Mainland China, Europe and the United States.
A new record was set in air cargo in 2003 at 2.64 million tonnes, 6.6% more than the previous record of 2.48 million tonnes in 2002.

747s are awesome

I love pics of 747s. But I wonder what that short-haul Northwest plane is doing in Hong Kong?

no, it takes only 23 minutes from Central to the airport by the Airport Express(railway)!

and the station in Central is called Hong Kong station, which is the base of IFC!

Hong Kong Aviation News - New Pacts & Deals

More Hong Kong Flights to Russia : Air pact to open up Russian routes
Keith Wallis, Hong Kong Standard

Hong Kong and Russian airlines will be able to operate more than twice as many flights between the SAR and Russia under a new air services pact hammered out early yesterday.

The deal includes an expansion of overflight rights by Hong Kong carriers which will provide more scope to increase the number of flights to western Europe and transpolar services to North America.

It will also allow Hong Kong and Russian carriers to codeshare on routes between Hong Kong and Moscow.

Wilson Fung, Deputy Secretary for Economic Development and Labour, said the agreement was reached at 1.30am yesterday after two days of discussions between Hong Kong and Russian government negotiators in Hong Kong.

Fung said the latest round of talks resulted in three main achievements. Under the agreement, which takes effect immediately, there is a 130 per cent increase in the number of flights between Hong Kong and most cities in Russia from 14 to 32 a week in each direction. These services cover both passenger and cargo flights.

Cathay Pacific and Hong Kong Dragon Airlines (Dragonair) do not currently fly to Russia. Aeroflot operates a three times a week return service while fellow Russian carrier TransAero Airlines has a weekly service.

There is also a 30 per cent rise in the number of flights permitted over Russian airspace. These are split equally between services to Europe including Britain, France and Germany, and over the North Pole to the east coast of Canada and the US.

This means that subject to agreement with governments in western Europe, Cathay Pacific and Dragonair will be able to expand the number of flights to cities such as London, Manchester, Paris and Frankfurt. It will also allow Cathay Pacific to operate daily non-stop services to New York.

While the agreement also allows airlines to codeshare, that arrangement is limited to the Hong Kong-Moscow route. It does not allow Cathay Pacific, for example, to codeshare with Aeroflot on services beyond Moscow to cities such as St Petersburg or Kiev, or to central and eastern Europe.

Fung said the pact was unusual because it included an expansion in the number of flights even though no Hong Kong carrier currently flies to any Russian city.

Cathay Pacific and Aeroflot have been discussing a codeshare pact, in which Cathay will be able to put its CX flight code on Aeroflot flights between Hong Kong and Moscow, for several months. The codeshare agreement is seen as the initial step in Cathay Pacific launching its own flights to Russia.

Speaking about the codeshare on Tuesday, Cathay Pacific chairman James Hughes-Hallett said the airline was "looking at it''.

Last year, the airline appointed Patrick Garrett to head Cathay's Moscow office. His responsibilities included talking to Aeroflot about commercial links between the two airlines and liaising with Russian authorities on overflight issues.

"The agreement between the Hong Kong and Russian aviation authorities is a welcome development and we thank the Hong Kong and Russian governments in their efforts to conclude constructive negotiations,'' Cathay Pacific said last night.

"The inclusion of more overflight rights and the establishment of codeshare arrangements can only strengthen Hong Kong's position as a global aviation hub.''

The Russian talks were the first of seven series of discussions Hong Kong air services negotiators will have with other governments to agree new air pacts in the next two months.

The coming talkes will be with representatives from the mainland, India, Thailand, Turkey, Spain and Malaysia.

British and Hong Kong regulators have approved Virgin to fly from Hong Kong to Sydney and Cathay was permitted to fly from New York to London, however, the EU still has to approve the deal, although their authority is being disputed right now. The pact was signed such that if anyone disagrees on any particular segment of the deal, the whole pact collapses. The EU discussions are ongoing.
