Passenger traffic reaches an all-time high in July

(HONG KONG, 15 August 2004) - Passenger traffic numbers at Hong Kong International Airport rose to 3,448,000 in July, breaking any monthly record ever made in Hong Kong.

In fact, year-on-year comparisons showed that all passenger, cargo and aircraft movements registered double-digit growth in July.

At 3,448,000, passenger throughput showed a 40 percent increase compared with July last year and a 14 percent rise against July 2002. More than 35 million passengers passed through Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) over the past 12 months, a rise of almost 26 percent compared with the corresponding period last year.

July's cargo throughput rose to 260,000 tonnes, representing a 23 percent increase compared with the figure for the same month last year. Loaded cargo (export) grew 25% to 159,000 tonnes, mainly as a result of high demand in North American and European markets. Cargo throughput for the last 12 months rose to 2,919,000 tonnes, showing a 14% increase against the corresponding period for the previous year.

These record figures illustrate that the region's aviation market is expanding rapidly, with HKIA reaping the benefits of robust growth.

July's aircraft movements rose by 44% to 20,365. There were 224,680 aircraft movements recorded for the past 12 months, representing a 19% increase against the same period last year.

HK Dragonair Passengers, Cargo Hit Record Highs In July

HONG KONG (Dow Jones)--Hong Kong Dragon Airlines Ltd. said Monday the number of passengers and amount of cargo it carried in July reached record highs.

The territory's second-largest airline carried 412,828 passengers last month, up 38% from 299,022 in July last year and up 7% from the previous record set in June.

"The start of the summer holidays has given a huge boost to passenger traffic, with Bangkok, Tokyo and Chengdu among the top destinations," said Chief Executive Stanley Hui.

"The increase in frequencies to Chinese cities where the individual travel scheme has been extended has helped to boost numbers," Hui said.

The Chinese government began allowing residents of certain cities to visit Hong Kong on an individual basis from the middle of last year, and has been extending that scheme to other areas since. Previously, mainland Chinese could only visit the territory as part of a tour group.

Dragonair noted, however, high oil prices are "inevitably feeding through to the bottom line".

The airline carried 28,195 metric tons of cargo in July, up 23% on year and up 7.5% from June. The previous record of 27,485 tons was set in March.

"Shipments from Hong Kong were particularly strong in July, but the figures reflect a buoyant performance throughout the network," Hui said.

Dragonair operates a fleet of 10 A330-300s, six A321s and 10 A320s, as well as four Boeing 747-200/-300 freighters and one wet-leased A300B4 freighter.

Dragonair's major shareholders are China National Aviation Co. (1110.HK), which holds a 43.29% stake, CITIC Pacific Ltd. (0267.HK), with 29.35%, Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd. (0293.HK), with 17.79%, and Swire Pacific Ltd. (0019.HK), which holds 7.71%.

Video Clips from the Airport Authority


http://www.hongkongairport.com/eng/aboutus/video.html


To commemorate the third anniversary of Hong Kong International Airport, a 6 feet H x 36 feet W mural was produced and presented by local primary school children in a Joint Schools Mural Exchange Project. This unique creation is now displayed at the Departures Check-in Hall of the passenger terminal.


This bas-relief was created by British artist Louise Soloway, who spent one year on the airport construction site. The work records various phases during the building of the 1 255-hectare airport platform. Inspired by the huge size and scale of the project, the artist said at the time, "I am constantly amazed at the drastic changes to the landscape that (can) take place within a month here." The materials used are British and Chinese clay and the work measures 1.8 m x 1.2 m. It is installed in the East Hall station of the Automated People Mover.

Premium services add to the enhanced airport experience, and one of the reasons why Hong Kong International Airport has been consistently ranked as the best in the world.

Time flies at the Common Use Lounge and Salon



When shopping, browsing, eating and relaxing lose their appeal there is always the communal passenger lounges and its associated hairdressing/beauty salon. The communal lounge is modelled on airlines' first and business class lounges and facilities are every bit as good. For a modest fee of HK$250 travellers spend as long as they like enjoying the buffet and drinks, the latest movies, music and magazines. There are numerous computers with Internet, business facilities, showers and massage chairs. The Plaza Premium Lounge has two facilities located at the West Hall, level 7 and at the East Hall, level 6.

The Plaza Shower and Relaxation lounge is another lovely place to freshen yourself up. Occupying an area of 2,000 sq. ft., the lounge consists of eight shower rooms, two hair blow-dry rooms, eight semi-private rooms for napping, a massage room and a mini-salon. The lounge is located at the West Hall, near Gate 60. Enjoy the facilities and relax before your next journey.

Massaging at the airport



Using the ancient theory of reflexology, foot massage is a quick and effective way to get you refreshed. Complemented with herbal treatment, foot massage can stimulate blood circulation, strengthen body defensive mechanism, and sweep toxic waste out of the body through the process of metabolism. Services can be found at Gate 28 and 40.

Being connected



Multi-media lounges operated by Reuters and the Samsung are open 24 hours a day and can be reached by departing passengers immediately after passing through Immigration. To-date a total of 36 workstations have been installed. Airport users enjoy high-speed broadband access, email, and full and unrestricted access to the worldwide web. They are provided free of charge.

Passengers who have their own laptops equipped with PC-LAN cards can access the Internet from almost anywhere in the passenger terminal. This service employs the very latest technology developed by Pacific Century Cyber Works (PCCW). Charges based on time apply, but business travellers in particular will find the time well spent.

Located in the Northwest Concourse, the Cyber Break Café is a part of the Cyber Zone. The café provides unlimited free Internet access on 16 iMac terminals to passengers. While at the landside, passengers can enjoy free Internet services available at the two Pacific Coffee Shops. At aisle A and H of the departures check-in hall.

CHARTERED FLIGHTS FROM TAIWAN'S TAICHUNG TO HK TO BEGIN BY END 2004

August 25, 2004

TAICHUNG - Travelers from central Taiwan can expect a chartered flight service to Hong Kong from the Chingchuankang Airport in Taichung County to begin by the end of the year, Taichung Chamber of Commerce (TCC) President Lai Cheng-yi said Tuesday.

Lai said the airport is currently not able to offer international flight services due to the fact that its runway is too short for large aircraft.

HKSAR /Jordan air services agreement signed

The Secretary for Economic Development and Labour, Mr Stephen Ip, today (August 28) signed an Air Services Agreement on behalf of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region with the Government of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in Amman.

Representing the Government of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan was His Excellency Mr Hanna Najjiar, Director-General of Civil Aviation Authority of Jordan.

With its strategic location, the Middle East is an important emerging market in Hong Kong's overall aviation network. At present, 13 carriers are operating some 110 weekly passenger and cargo services between Hong Kong and eight destinations in this region.

"Jordan is located in the heart of the Middle East and I believe the air services market between the two places has good potential. Notably, bilateral trade between Hong Kong and Jordan has been growing rapidly, registering an impressive 50% average annual growth rate for the past five years. This encouraging trend provides good opportunities for airlines of the two sides to develop air services between Hong Kong and Jordan. The Air Services Agreement signed today provides a legal framework for the establishment of air links between Hong Kong and Jordan. Traffic rights exchanged between the two governments provide opportunities for airlines to launch services between the two places anytime.

"To further develop Hong Kong as a preferred transportation and logistics hub, we will continue to liberalise our air services regime and negotiate more new air services agreements with our aviation partners. The more agreements we have negotiated, the wider the platform on which we can extend our aviation network. These agreements, including the one we sign today, also provide valuable opportunities for Hong Kong and foreign airlines to further develop the market," Mr Ip added.

The Air Services Agreement with Jordan is the seventh agreement Hong Kong has concluded with a Middle East partner and the 54th with foreign aviation partners.

Hong Kong has signed Air Services Agreements with Australia, Austria, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Belgium, Brazil, Brunei, Cambodia, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Kuwait, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Mauritius, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, the Republic of Korea, Oman, Qatar, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, the USA and Vietnam.

Chartered Flights From Taiwan's Taichung to HK to Begin by End 2004

TAICHUNG, Aug 25 Asia Pulse - Travelers from central Taiwan can expect a chartered flight service to Hong Kong from the Chingchuankang Airport in Taichung County to begin by the end of the year, Taichung Chamber of Commerce (TCC) President Lai Cheng-yi said Tuesday.

Lai said the airport is currently not able to offer international flight services due to the fact that its runway is too short for large aircraft.

However, the businessman said the TCC has asked the Ministry of Transportation and Communications to expand the airport.

Lai indicated there is a demand for the flight because at present 50 per cent of the Taiwanese business travelers taking a transit stop in Hong Kong en route to mainland China were from the central regions of the island.

(HONG KONG) Dragonair is to fly over 1,700 kilogrammes of relief goods for the Hong Kong Red Cross to Yunnan province, which has been hit by flooding and mudslides over the summer.

Heavy rains in the region have affected more than 14 million people and have left 232 dead.

Dragonair operates a daily service to Kunming in Yunnan, and will transport 339 boxes of new clothes over the two days without charge.

"The flooding has had a devastating effect, especially in southwest Yunnan, and Dragonair is glad to be able to play a small role in joining with the Hong Kong Red Cross to help relieve some of the suffering," said Laura Crampton, Assistant General Manager, Corporate Communication.

The clothes are destined for Dehong, a prefecture in the province that has been particularly badly affected by the floods.


Dragonair is flying 339 boxes of clothes to Yunnan to help the Hong Kong Red Cross with its relief efforts.

HK and China reach pact to expand air services

HONG KONG, Sept 8 (Reuters) - Hong Kong and China agreed on Wednesday to increase the number of passenger flights between the two places to 1,600 a week in October from the current 1,200, the Hong Kong government said.

The pact will also allow a second Hong Kong carrier to fly to Shanghai, starting in October 2006. Currently, Hong Kong Dragon Airlines is the city's only carrier with rights to fly to China's financial hub.

Hong Kong's main carrier, Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd., has long sought to expand its network in mainland China. Cathay only flies to Beijing three times a week but wants to fly to Shanghai and the southeastern city of Xiamen.

Hong Kong's second carrier, Dragonair, in which Cathay has a 19 percent stake, flies to over 20 destinations in mainland China.
