New Hong Kong International Airport Website Wins Two International Awards
Press Release

(HONG KONG, 1 March 2009) The new Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) website, launched in July 2008, has gained international acclaim by winning two awards that commend outstanding websites.

In the Eighth Annual International iNOVA 2008 Awards Competition, the judging panel comprised of some 40 top internet professionals named the revamped HKIA website the Gold winner in the Corporate Website (Transport Services) category. The competition received more than 200 entries from 10 countries in 2008. HKIA website was praised for its excellence in concept, content, creativity, ease of navigation, design, functionality and its overall success in achieving the goals of the company.

The website also scored the Outstanding Achievement Award in the annual Interactive Media Awards (Travel/ Tourism category) for achieving a very high standard of planning, execution and overall professionalism. After reviewing over 2,800 entries, the 48 judges – mainly leaders in web design, advertising, public relations, publishing and news industries – said the HKIA website excelled in all areas of the evaluation criteria, namely design, content, feature functionality, usability, standards compliance and cross-browser compatibility. HKIA is the first airport to obtain the honour.

As part of the Airport Authority’s continuous efforts to enhance its services and facilities, the new HKIA website features a user-friendly design with enhanced information architecture and easy navigation flow. Recording over one million visits every month, the HKIA website is an important information platform for travellers, business partners, journalists and other airport stakeholders. The Airport Authority gauged the views of over 2,000 public users prior to launching the new website.

The revamped website also accommodates the needs of the visually impaired, enabling easy navigation using screen reader and screen enlarging software.

The iNOVA Awards is held annually to recognise website excellence. The New York-based organiser, MerComm, Inc., was founded in 1987 with the purpose of encouraging a high standard of communications.

The Interactive Media Awards is primarily sponsored and governed by Interactive Media Council, Inc., a non-profit making organisation of leading web designers, developers, programmers, advertisers and other web-related professionals. The Awards recognises individuals and organisations for exceptional achievement in website design and development.

Hong Kong air cargo throughput drops 26.9 pct in Jan-Feb

HONG KONG, March 10 (Reuters) - Air cargo throughput via Hong Kong plunged 26.9 percent in January and February from a year earlier as global demand for Asian goods tumbled, data from Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Ltd showed on Tuesday.

For February alone, throughput was down 22 percent from a year ago, improving from a 30.9 percent drop in January. However, since there were fewer working days in January this year due to the Lunar New Year holiday, data for the two months' needs to be combined, analysts said.

Hong Kong is a re-export centre for trade between Asia and the rest of the world.

The data showed that air cargo volumes through Hong Kong in January and February totalled 276,378 tonnes.

Traffic Volumes at HKIA Continue to Decline Due to Global Economic Downturn
Press Release

(HONG KONG, 15 March 2009) – Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) handled 3.4 million passenger trips and moved 198,000 tonnes of cargo in February, representing decreases of 13.7% and 19.7% from the same month of 2008 respectively. Year-on-year, aircraft movements declined 10.5% to 21,235.

Both local resident and visitor traffic were weak during the month. The number of local travellers declined over 20% from February 2008, mainly because the Chinese New Year travel peak fell in January this year whereas the corresponding peak was in February last year. Visitor traffic, particularly from long-haul markets like North America and Europe and regional markets such as North Asia and Taiwan, also reported double-digit decreases.

On the cargo front, most of HKIA's major markets continued to record double-digit decreases during the month. However, as manufacturing activities started to resume after the Chinese New Year holidays, the magnitude of the declines, particularly for North America, Mainland and Taiwan markets, was smaller compared to January.

Stanley Hui Hon-chung, Chief Executive Officer of the Airport Authority, said, "Aggregate figures for January and February, which even out the seasonal impact of Chinese New Year, give a better account for the year-on-year comparison. The combined figures show that the airport has served a total of 7.4 million passengers, moved 408,000 tonnes of cargo and handled 45,480 aircraft movements during the first two months of 2009. These represent reductions of 6.7%, 24.7% and 6.2% respectively in comparison with the same period last year.

"Both February's statistics and the combined figures for the last two months show that air traffic volumes continue to suffer from the global economic downturn. It is unlikely that this downward trend will reverse in the short term when the world’s major economies remain in recession. While decline in the total cargo volumes of January and February was less severe than the previous months, it is too early to suggest that the air cargo market has stabilised."

On a rolling 12-month basis, cargo throughput decreased 7.5% year-on-year to 3.5 million tonnes. While passenger volume dropped slightly by 1.0% to 48 million, air traffic movements rose marginally by 0.1%, to 298,190.

Cheap trips may give agents break
19 March 2009
Hong Kong Standard

Travel agents trying to avoid staff layoffs as a result of the financial downturn hope cheaper tours will attract more customers.

Travel agency revenue has fallen by 30 percent and Travel Industry Council chairman Ronnie Ho Pak-ting said yesterday layoffs are inevitable if business worsens.

``So far, no leading travel agent has indicated it plans to lay off staff,'' he said.

Ho said advance bookings for Easter tours stood at a satisfactory 60 percent, though this does not necessarily translate into earnings as many tours, while cheaper, have the same overheads.

``Everything is cheaper now since the demand for hotel rooms and plane seats has slowed. It was so difficult to secure seats for customers last year but now there are lots available,'' he said.

Mainland and Japanese routes are popular this year, but the market for mid-priced tours continues to shrink because customers have either opted for cheaper tours or found other luxury tours more appealing.

An eight-to-10-day Eastern European tour that cost at least HK$12,000 last year is now HK$6,000.

Although travel sentiment has been upheld by the reduction in tour costs and weakened foreign currencies, travel agency revenue has shrunk by 20 to 30 percent, Ho said. The trade is very labor- intensive and earnings are marginal.

At the same time, Ho said he does not know why the Walt Disney Company laid off 30 designers and engineers involved in expansion plans at Hong Kong Disneyland. But he does not think it will affect daily operations at the park.

He also welcomes the decision of Shaolin Temple to set up a branch in the city. He said it will be beneficial to Hong Kong in the long run _ and Lantau will prove a good location.

Meanwhile, Cathay Pacific and All Nippon Airways have applied to extend the current fuel surcharge of HK$61 for short-haul flights and HK$280 for long-haul flights. The result will be known next week.

Seven HK flights affected by crash
24 March 2009
South China Morning Post

The Hong Kong Airport Authority said the plane crash at Narita airport had affected seven flights between Hong Kong and Tokyo yesterday, with four cancelled.

Japan Airlines and All Nippon Airways cancelled JL832 and NH910 that were scheduled to leave Hong Kong, and two incoming flights, JL731 and NH909.

Another flight, JL736, destined for Tokyo was rerouted to Nagoya yesterday morning while two other morning flights were delayed for about an hour.

Travel Industry Council executive director Joseph Tung Yao-chung said the crash would have a slight impact on Hong Kong tours in Japan - a popular destination for Hongkongers.
