Wow, so many widebodies!!!! I'm so used to seeing a multitude of regional jets and turboprops at our U.S. airports these days. I can't wait to visit Hong Kong. I don't know anyone there so I'll probably have to save up even more money just to stay there for a week or so....plus get a visa in order to visit Shenzhen and Guangzhou.

Press Release

HKIA Records Strong Growth in March

(HONG KONG, 20 April 2008) – Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) reported a 10.8% increase in passenger traffic, to 4.2 million, and a 10.1% rise in cargo throughput, to 334,000 tonnes, in March 2008. Air traffic movements reached 25,745, 6.8% higher than March 2007.

On 21 March, the first day of the Easter holidays, HKIA handled a record 945 aircraft movements.

Stanley Hui, Chief Executive Officer of Airport Authority Hong Kong, said, “Easter is traditionally one of our busiest periods. This year was no exception, as holiday departures by Hong Kong residents drove growth in passenger traffic. Meanwhile, exports to Europe and North America spurred cargo growth.”

During the first three months of 2008, HKIA handled 12.1 million passengers, an increase of 10.5% from the same period a year earlier. Cargo traffic increased 8.3%, to 876,000 tonnes, and air traffic movements grew 6.3%, to 74,305.

Mr Hui added, “We are encouraged by the robust growth in air traffic during the first quarter. Nevertheless, our outlook for the months ahead remains cautiously optimistic in view of the prospect of a slowdown in the US economy.”

For the 12 months ended 31 March 2008, HKIA served 48.9 million passengers, handled 3.8 million tonnes of cargo and saw 299,725 air traffic movements. These figures represented year-on-year increases of 8.5%, 6.5% and 5.9%, respectively.

機場首季客運量 達1210萬人次




(星島) 04月 21日 星期一 05:30AM
(綜合報道)




(星島日報 報道)香港國際機場 在上月的復活節假期首日以九百四十五班航機升降量,再創新高,不但打破去年復活節時創下的八百九十一班的紀錄,更突破九百班次關口。而今年首季,機場的客運量更達到一千二百多萬人次,比去年同期飆升超過一成。

  復活節一向是港人外出旅遊的旺季,上月二十一日更是今年復活節一連四日長假期的首日,機場管理局昨表示,當日一共錄得九百四十五架次的航班升降量,為機場的單日航班升降量刷新紀錄。

  貨運量亦增8.3%

  另外,今年首三個月機場客、貨運量都有穩健增長。客運量高達一千二百一十萬旅客人次,較去年同期增加百分之十點五;貨運量升幅亦有百分之八點三,達到八十七萬六千公噸;航空交通量升幅則為百分之六點三,共有七萬四千三百零五架次。

  機管局 行政總裁許漢忠 解釋,由於假日期間,大量香港居民離境外遊,使客運量上升;歐洲與北美入口需求亦帶動香港貨運增長。而對於機場在今年第一季的航空交通量有強勁增長,他坦言「感到鼓舞」,面對美國 經濟可能放緩,當局會對前景維持審慎樂觀。

Hi hkskyline.

Just out of interest, what was the Iclandair plane doing at Chek Lap Kok?

I have not heard of them providing a service to Hong Kong, and they are not listed as an airline serving the airport.

Update:
In addition to that, it is not even carrying the airline's livery.

Yes, that Icelandair plane caught my attention. Let me go back to the source and ask what it was about. Perhaps it's a charter, but you're right - it's not in its usual colours.

Plan for more direct flights from HK
2 May 2008
New Straits Times

GEORGE TOWN: Talks are on-going to increase the frequency of direct flights between Penang and Hong Kong, Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said.

Lim said currently, there were only three Penang-Hong Kong direct flights offered by Cathay Pacific Airways weekly.

He said the number was insufficient to meet the influx of trade and business partners from Hong Kong.

"We are in an advanced stage of negotiation with the airline on the matter.

"With more direct flights, we hope to forge closer bilateral ties with the city," he told a press conference after a courtesy call on him by Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office director Lam Kam Kwang here yesterday.

Lim said there were also plans to have new direct flight between Penang and other international destinations including the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

He said UAE and other Middle East countries offer business opportunities for Penang.

"Increased direct air links will further boost the state economic, trade and tourism industries," he added.

Earlier, Lim said it was imperative for the Penang water authority to emulate its Hong Kong counterpart in improving water quality in the state.

The water supply quality has deteriorated as a result of global environmental pollution.

He said the Hong Kong water works authority had agreed in principle to assist the state government in the matter.
