Hong Kong Express Airways Launches Flights to Kuala Lumpur
Press Release



Hong Kong, 12th November 2007…. Hong Kong Express Airways celebrated the launch of its newest Southeast Asian scheduled service to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia yesterday. Buoyed by the success of its recently introduced Bangkok route which, in response to demand, has now become a daily service, the new Kuala Lumpur route will see daily flights operating from the outset.

Mr. Guo Ya Jun, President of Hong Kong Express Airways said, “Our southeast Asian routes are performing well hence our decision to launch with daily services to Kuala Lumpur. We are very excited to be entering a new country – especially one with so much potential for both inbound and outbound traffic.”

Arrivals into Hong Kong from Malaysia have increased significantly with double digit growth recorded for most months this year over the same period in 2006. Equally, Malaysia is proving a popular destination for mainland China’s outbound travellers with year on year arrivals surging 80 per cent in the first six months of 2007.

The new Kuala Lumpur route is the second to be launched by Hong Kong Express Airways this month. The airline launched services to Yangon on November 2nd. Additional routes, and accordingly additional aircraft, will be added before the end of the year. Continuing its strategic growth programme, the airline is set to continue expansion at a similar rate in 2008.

Press Release

HKIA Records Healthy Growth in October

(HONG KONG, 18 November 2007) - Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) experienced another month of solid growth in October this year, with passenger and cargo volumes increasing more than 7% from October 2006.

Passenger throughput reached 4.13 million, up 7.1% from October 2006. Cargo throughput and air traffic movements grew 7.6% and 5.8%, respectively, to 353,000 tonnes and 25,830 movements.

"As one of China's key aviation hubs, HKIA benefited from strong passenger demand during the National Day Golden Week holiday. It is also a reflection of the continued attraction of Hong Kong as a destination for visitors from Mainland China," said Stanley Hui, Chief Executive Officer of Airport Authority Hong Kong.

"Cargo also continued to grow, in line with growth in foreign trade between China and Europe and the US. We will continue to capitalise on our geographical advantage and enhance our connectivity with the Mainland to meet growing demand for both passenger and cargo services."

For the 12 months ended 31 October 2007, HKIA handled 47.1 million passengers, a year-on-year increase of 7.4%. The airport handled 3.7 million tonnes of cargo and 292,740 air traffic movements, up 4.4% and 5% from last year, respectively.

In October, UNI Air and South African Airways began providing check-in services at Terminal 2 (T2), which opened earlier this year to meet growing demand. Philippine Airlines moved to T2 on 16 November and will be joined by Hong Kong Airlines and Hong Kong Express Airways on 28 November. Oasis Hong Kong Airlines, Emirates, Jetstar Asia Airways, Bangkok Airways, Siem Reap Airways International and Thai Airways International now also operate from T2.

British woman falls ill, dies on London flight
18 November 2007
South China Morning Post

A 45-year-old woman fell ill and died on a British Airways flight to London despite the efforts of two Hong Kong doctors to save her life.

The medics stepped in to help after the woman was taken seriously ill over Russia on flight 32, which left Hong Kong at 11.45pm on Wednesday. Cabin crew rushed to her assistance.

An airline spokeswoman declined to give details but issued a statement saying: "Sadly, a female passenger died on board flight BA32 from Hong Kong to London Heathrow on November 15. The crew did all that was possible to revive the customer but were unfortunately unable to do so."

Passengers noticed something was wrong about eight hours into the flight.

Walking tour leader Nigel Blandford of Suffolk, England, said he believed the captain initially tried to divert to Moscow for an emergency landing, although no announcement was made to passengers.

"They have a movie map of where the plane was going, and it suddenly made a right turn," he said. "The destination line was then pointing towards Moscow, and the estimated arrival time in the UK changed from 5am to 11.30am. It was pretty obvious that we were diverting to Moscow.

"About 20 minutes after that, the plane resumed its course towards London. Again there was no announcement."

After the plane landed, passengers had to wait for more than an hour on the tarmac while police and a doctor came on board and spoke with the crew about the incident, Mr Blandford said.

A Metropolitan Police spokeswoman said Heathrow police were notified at 5.20am of a death on board, and two officers had boarded the plane with a doctor, who pronounced the woman dead at 6.10am.

The woman, from Devon, southwest England, was returning from a holiday in Australia.

Diane Whiting of the Uxbridge Coroner's Office said a postmortem examination had found the death was due to natural causes.

With the upcoming inauguration of the second runway at the Shenzhen Airport, Wu believes the Airport's hardware will interest more domestic and foreign carriers.

Sources disclose that Shenzhen Airport's proposal of Southeast Asia routes have successfully concluded. Shenzhen Airport is expected to extend its services to Europe and America.

Wow so you get to go on top there and admire the view? That's great! Definitely beats having to wait for your plane departing or people arriving.

I think it's better to go through security from T2 and beat the crowds, and have a nice meal before the flight.
