East Star flights to HK, Macau approved
Hong Kong Standard
Thursday, July 19, 2007

Hubei-based East Star Airlines has won approval from mainland aviation regulators to operate flights from Wuhan to Hong Kong and Macau starting in September, bringing the private carrier a step closer to its goal of servicing international destinations.

Currently, Hong Kong's Dragonair and Guangzhou-based China Southern Airlines (1055) are the only airlines offering direct flights between Hong Kong and Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province and most populated city in central China with more than nine million people.

Dragonair currently offers four flights a week between Hong Kong and Wuhan.

East Star told a mainland newspaper that it plans to operate one flight a day to Hong Kong and Macau, with one-way fares not exceeding 1,000 yuan (HK$1,034).

The Wuhan carrier will become the first private Chinese airline to fly to Hong Kong and Macau.

China currently has 10 private airlines, all flying domestic routes, excluding the two special administrative regions that were returned to Chinese sovereignty in the late 1990s.

The permission granted by mainland regulators is seen as part of efforts to loosen the country's strictly-controlled aviation sector, East Star said.

So far, state carriers, including the three largest airlines: China Southern, Beijing-based Air China (0753), and Shanghai's China Eastern Airlines (0670) have dominated international destinations, along with several domestic routes such as Shanghai and Beijing.

Meanwhile, the smaller private airlines in China face stringent restrictions in comparison to the government-backed carriers.

East Star, which currently serves cities including Shenzhen, Nanjing, Xian, Haikou and Hangzhou, said it aims at flying to all provincial capitals and will continue to expand overseas. It has also applied to operate flights to Singapore and Thailand.

Press Release
http://www.hactl.com/en/mediactr/press20070710.htm

A total of 214,055 tonnes were handled in June, representing a year-on-year increase of 3.9%. Tonnage throughput for the second quarter and for the first half of the year was 629,857 tonnes and 1,206,734 tonnes, representing a year-on-year growth of 1.9% and 1.0% respectively.

Export volume was 118,214 tonnes for June and 351,988 tonnes for the second quarter, representing a year-on-year growth of 3.2 % and 1.4% respectively. Volume exported to the U.S. and Europe registered a slight growth of 1.5% and 3.7% in the second quarter respectively, underlying a continuous slower growth trend for exports to both markets. Export volume growth to Mainland China in the second quarter registered a slight growth of 3.2%. Cumulative export tonnage for the first half of the year was 666,592 tonnes, up 0.3% against the same period last year.

A total of 57,841 tonnes and 165,873 tonnes of import cargo were handled in June and in the second quarter, down 1.9% and 4.7% respectively. Import volume from Mainland China and the U.S. market registered a year-on-year increase of 9.8% and 7.2% in the second quarter; while another major import market, Europe showed a decline of 5.6%. Cumulative import tonnage for the first half of the year was 327,887 tonnes, down 2.4% against the same period last year.

The transshipment volume was 38,000 tonnes for June, and 111,996 tonnes for the second quarter, representing a year-on-year increase of 16.5% and 15.3% for the respective periods. Total transshipment volume for the first six months was 212,255 tonnes, up 9.3% year-on-year.

Ms. Lilian Chan, General Manager, Marketing and Customer Service said, “The cargo growth of 1.9% in Q2 saw a slight improvement from Q1. However, the growth rate in Q2 is still relatively slow as key export markets of the U.S. and Europe still register signs of slowness. We remain cautiously optimistic towards the air cargo growth trend in the second half of year 2007.”

New Route by Hong Kong Airline: Nanchang
2007 Jul 9
Corporate Press Release

On 9th July 2007, Hong Kong Airlines starts new services from Hong Kong to Nanchang with 3 flights per week on every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. Nanchang is the biggest industrial city in Jiangxi Province, and has a population of over 4 million people. It is also the regional hub for distributing agricultural products in Jiangxi Province. Products such as rice and oranges are abundant. The successes in promoting industry and agriculture are playing an important role in the development of Nanchang. In terms of tourism, there are also numerous scenic and historic sights for visits by domestic and overseas visitors.

Hong Kong Airlines is an airline based in Hong Kong and aims to serve the public with the “Hong Kong Spirit”. Since our first Boeing 737 entered service in July 2006, we are expanding at a fast rate with one new aircraft, eight pilots, 24 cabin crews and 3 new destinations added in every two months. In less than one year, we are now operating 6 planes with destinations covering 13 Chinese cities such as Guilin, Kunming, Tianjin, Xiamen and Changsha, etc as well as 7 Asian countries including Vietnam, Thailand, Korea and Japan, etc.

Hong Kong Airlines, the fastest growing airline in Hong Kong, has become Airbus’ latest customer by signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for 51 Airbus aircraft, including A320 and A330 aeroplanes, as well as an Airbus Corporate Jet. It is our firm plan to extend our routes to Australia, Middle-East, America and Europe in the future. The comprehensive worldwide routes will enable Hong Kong Airlines to expand its network further overseas, to strengthen its service level to capture the international travelers, as well as to play an important role in promoting Hong Kong as one of the major international hubs of the world.

Airlines gear up for growth
New routes and aggressive recruitment plans in Hong Kong bode well for industry professionals

27 July 2007
South China Morning Post

Hong Kong's airlines are gearing up for expansion with restructuring of ownership, new routes planned and a host of vacancies on offer.

In a recent report on developments in the industry, the Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation (Capa) said that Hong Kong's aviation sector would be a "busy arena" this year. Prime evidence for this is Cathay Pacific's expanding fleet and new service rights to the mainland, as well as its continuing integration of Dragonair.

The centre also pointed out that the Cathay-Air China partnership, with its combination of private equity and government support via Beijing was "a relationship which could become the envy of all Asian airlines".

A spokeswoman for Cathay said the airline recognised in particular the need to extend its network and strengthen competitiveness.

"We understand that this is crucial to sustaining the status of Hong Kong as an international aviation hub and a predominant gateway to the mainland," she said.

Current plans for network expansion include increasing frequencies to cities such as San Francisco and New York, and adding new routes.

Capa also noted that the Hong Kong government was expected to take a more liberal stance towards bilateral negotiations on air services, now that the future of its flag carrier seemed assured.

Meanwhile, other locally based carriers have their own plans for rapid growth. Hong Kong Airlines recently signed a memorandum of understanding to buy 51 planes from Airbus, as a prelude to making an ambitious drive into the mainland and Southeast Asian markets.

And according to Capa, low-cost carrier Oasis Hong Kong, after a "shaky start" last October, could prove to be "something of a surprise packet in 2007".

Oasis intends to operate to more than 15 popular long-haul gateways in North America and Europe by 2010, and is confident of seeing heavy passenger demand. The fleet of Boeing 747-400s will grow from five to 25.

The carrier serves London daily and Vancouver six times a week, but is contemplating at least three new routes a year.

All this bodes well for job seekers, and Oasis human resources manager Kristi Rigg said an "aggressive" recruitment plan was in place, although actual hiring was "dependent on the delivery of our aircraft".

"We are growing rapidly and expect to have close to 1,000 employees by the end of the year," she said.

The majority of new positions are for cabin crew, but head office recruits with varying levels of experience are also needed for roles in marketing, flight operations, finance, IT, customer service, engineering and human resources.

The requirements for all available positions are listed on the company's website, and interested parties can apply online.

Ms Rigg said with the start-up phase now completed, the company could pay more attention to other areas. "For example, Oasis will implement various programmes to promote the unique culture of our airline and ensure the well-being of our employees. New projects such as these will open up more positions within the organisation."

Hong Kong Airlines is also keen to recruit. A spokeswoman said the carrier was "hungry for experienced airline staff in every area".

All departments would be hiring, but there was particular demand for marketing, engineering and revenue management staff, as well as pilots and cabin crew. Applicants with a background in the industry would get first consideration.

"We want to keep safety first, improve our services, increase our popularity in the market and improve working efficiency," the spokeswoman said.

In terms of numbers, Cathay's basic target for this year is to take on about 1,500 recruits, including 930 cabin crew, 250 cockpit crew and 350 airport and office staff.

Candidates for frontline roles should be good with people and service-orientated. They must also be confident and have a positive attitude, good interpersonal and communication skills, and be genuine team players.

Cathay, together with its subsidiaries, is already one of the largest employers in Hong Kong, with more than 18,000 staff locally and more than 25,000 worldwide.

Future recruitment activities are in line with the airline's ongoing network and fleet expansion.

This should include delivery of seven new aircraft before the end of the year, taking the total fleet size to 112, with projections that this will reach 132 by late 2010.

Five More Airlines to Operate from Terminal 2 of HKIA
AA Press Release

(HONG KONG, 31 July 2007) - Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) announced today that Bangkok Airways, Jetstar Asia Airways, Qatar Airways, Siem Reap Airways International and Thai Airways will start providing check-in services at Terminal 2 (T2) over the coming three months. Together with Oasis Hong Kong Airlines and Emirates Airline that are currently operating from T2, the new passenger terminal will soon house seven passenger airlines providing services at HKIA.

Mr Stanley Hui, Chief Executive Officer of Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA), is delighted that more and more airlines are moving to T2. Mr Hui says, "The number of weekly flights with passengers checking-in via T2 will increase to more than 100 when the five airlines commence their check-in service. This is in line with our plan to facilitate the moving-in of airlines to T2 on a progressive basis."

Jetstar Asia will commence operation from T2 on 13 August. Currently offering two daily flights between Singapore and Hong Kong, Jetstar Asia will become the third airline moving to T2, following Oasis and Emirates.

Mr Hui says that the five additional airlines would start operation from T2 on different dates to ensure a smooth relocation of services. Passengers are reminded to check with their respective airlines for the appropriate check-in terminal.

Officially opened in June 2007, T2 is built to capture growth opportunities and meet future demand. Designed to be a multi-modal transportation hub with a seamless convergence of air, sea and land links, T2 combines airlines check-in, customs and immigration, and a coach station, and is supported by a myriad of retail, dining and entertainment facilities to enhance travel experience of the passengers.

Every day, more than 6,000 passengers take hotel shuttles, local and mainland coaches at T2's Coach Station. The mainland network originating from the coach station shuttles passengers to more than 70 cities and towns in the Pearl River Delta (PRD).

With the scheduled completion of the permanent SkyPier in 2009, passengers taking high-speed cross-boundary ferries to and from PRD can travel in comfort between the pier and Terminals 1 and 2 by the automated people mover.

Because cars there are more affordable and the car-culture is prevelant. Mass transit is efficient in some US cities especially those in The East Coast and San Francisco.

HK on the other hand have several alternative of heading from the airport to the city such as The Airport Express, bus or taxi. US airports on the other hand lack an Airport Express.

Are there any aerial shots of Terminal 2? The last pictures I've seen of HKIA only show one terminal that looks like a "Y."

Is this what they built? Looking at the "X"

T2 is to the right of T1 :



It's not the X-shaped terminal.

T2 does not actually have gates a normal terminal does; it is essentially an extra building for handling passengers and luggage. Its secondary function is to house SkyPlaza (shops...).
The X shape I believe is for the future for even greater capacity.

Thanks hkskyline & herenthere. I guess it does make sense to use two sides to beck people in and handle luggage. Is it easy to transfer between terminals 1 and 2? I guess it should be because of all the shops and things like that. It's an interesting way to increase capacity.

The Airport Express station opens up to both sides. T1 is on the left while T2 is on the right from Central.

Underground passageways link T1 and T2. Exit towards the public transportation centre and there are 2 huge tunnels lit up by orange light.

could somebody kindly tell me more abt HKIA T2? Is it an full-service terminal, or a cruise termininal or just a shopping extension? Yea, cos i realised it dosen't have gates, which means it dosent contribute to HKIA's combined capacity?

Whatever the case, T2 looks great. Chic and classy, a nice contrast to the vast main terminal.

It's a full service terminal. You can check-in and proceed to immigration from there, while there is also a lot of shopping and restaurants.

The terminal will relieve congestion in the main T1, but doesn't add new gates, so theoretically it wouldn't boost capacity.

There is also the People Mover, which connects both terminals. Check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hong_Ko...d_People_Mover
However, arriving PAX cannot (or should not) go to T2, since the baggage hall, customs...are still located in T1.

I don't think you can go backward on the APM from T1 to T2.
The departure level will only bring you to the immigration, custom and transportation facilities at T1. It doesn't connect to T2 directly in the restricted area. Travellers need to go to T2 will have to walk through the pedestrian connector between two building in the public area.

There would have a new building within the Airport, the New Civil Aviation Department Headquarters!

So can you travel on the APM from T2 departures to T1? B/c I think the APM platform in T1 is in the restricted area.
