AIR PACIFIC EYES ASIAN, EUROPEAN SKIES

SUVA, May 28 Asia Pulse - Fiji and China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) are expected to sign an agreement this year that would open up more routes for local airline Air Pacific in Asia and Europe, Fiji media reported on Wednesday.

Last week, the Fiji cabinet had given the green light to Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama and the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Civil Aviation to sign the Fiji-Hong Kong special administration region (SAR) air services agreement (ASA).

Air Pacific chief executive and managing director John Campbell on Wednesday welcomed the announcement, saying the locally-owned airline had encouraged the government to initiate the air services agreement with Hong Kong in order to materialize its plans to commence flights between Fiji and Hong Kong.

"The Air Services Agreement is, in effect, the licensing of the route for operations and ASAs are required between Fiji and any country that Air Pacific or the other countries airlines provide flight operations," the Fiji live website on Wednesday quoted Campbell as saying.

In his submission to Cabinet last week, acting Prime Minister Ratu Epeli Ganilau said the ASA was envisaged to lead to meaningful bilateral relationships between Fiji and Hong Kong in areas of trade, tourism and increased interaction.

He said that the agreed air services scheduled to commence with effect from Dec. 3 later this year were intended to open up air routes to the lucrative air routes in Asia, Europe and the United States.

No mechanical fault in helicopter crash
28 May 2009
South China Morning Post

An investigation by the Civil Aviation Department has ruled out mechanical faults as the cause of a rare accident this month in which a helicopter crashed into a parked tour bus in Kowloon City.

Yesterday, director general Norman Lo Shung-man said the investigation would be completed early next month and the department was now examining other aspects of the accident, such as the human and environmental factors.

"We are looking into the pilot's experience [in handling the helicopter] as well as the wind speed at the time of the accident," he said, adding that the helicopter had been functioning well at the time.

The department would also study whether the Hong Kong Aviation Club, located next to the former Kai Tak airport, was suitable for helicopter take offs and landings, Mr Lo said.

On May 1, a helicopter carrying pilot Ng Shu-keung, 48, and his eight-year-old son smashed into the front of the bus about 100 metres from where it was scheduled to land at the aviation club's helipad in Sung Wong Toi Road.

Both of them were trapped in the helicopter's cabin but were conscious when rescuers arrived. A technician working on the bus suffered slight injuries from flying glass. The front of the bus was badly damaged.

Witnesses had said the helicopter was flying unsteadily and had circled several times before going down.

A survey by the Association for Democracy and People's Livelihood of 243 residents in Kowloon City between May 4 and May 16 found that more than 90 per cent wanted the club to move out. Eighty-four per cent said they had been affected by the club's flying activities, while 83 per cent feared a similar accident.

After the accident, the Civil Aviation Department ordered the club to suspend flying at the site. The helicopter that crashed was a two-seater, Robinson R22 model.

Third aircraft service complex opens at Chek Lap Kok
23 May 2009
China Daily - Hong Kong Edition

HONG KONG: The city will bolster its ability to provide aircraft maintenance services in the region with Friday's launch of a HK$400 million aircraft maintenance hangar at the Hong Kong International Airport.

The complex, property of the China Aircraft Services Ltd (CASL) and Hong Kong's third maintenance services facility, has opened up about 200 new job opportunities in the aviation industry, mainly technicians and aviation repair workers.

The 10,000 square-meter compound, which took two years to build, officially began operation Friday with an opening ceremony officiated by Secretary for Transport and Housing Eva Cheng and Deputy Director of the Liaison Office of the central government in the HKSAR Guo Li.

The new hangar provides services such as maintenance checks, major defect rectifications and cabin cleaning to airline companies from the Greater China region, Europe and America operating flights in and out of Hong Kong.

Eva Cheng said: "We are aware of the challenges facing Hong Kong's aviation industry. Recently, we have observed a significant decline in passenger and cargo traffic due to the introduction of direct charter flights between the mainland and Taiwan as well as the human swine flu.

"We cannot predict when the next upturn will come, but we will be fully geared up when it does," she said.

Designed to house one wide-body and a narrow-body aircraft at the same time, the hangar is expected to carry out maintenance works for 100 aircraft each year. This allows for simultaneous servicing of a large Boeing 747 aircraft and a smaller aircraft used for regional flights.

CASL Chief Executive Officer Angus H.W. Cheung said: "We see huge opportunities for the Hong Kong International Airport brought about by continued developments and connections between Hong Kong and the Pearl River Delta."

Hong Kong has a competitive advantage in the aviation industry due to the Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement, he said. The city can better source aircraft parts and deliver quicker and more efficient service to clients.

"Our workforce is very important to the long-term success and future expansion of the company," he said.

He indicated that CASL intends to set up a technical training school to provide the necessary skills and training for the future development of its staff.

He expects the company to generate good business at the facility as the aviation maintenance industry in Asia Pacific is expected to grow by 28 percent in the coming decade.

In addition, he said the hangar can service European and American airlines. "We have found that many European and American airline operators are increasingly outsourcing aircraft maintenance services. We can benefit from this trend."

CASL is currently offering services to shareholders United Airlines, China Airlines as well as international airlines such as British Airways, Lufthansa Airlines, Air France and Japan Airlines.

Its aircraft cabin cleaning services account for about 50 percent of the local passenger flight market.

Hong Kong Airlines charts course to Europe
23 May 2009
South China Morning Post

Hong Kong Airlines, a subsidiary of HNA Group, planned to develop long-haul routes to European destinations in the next six months despite the current downturn in air traffic, its president said yesterday.

The airline plans to take delivery of five aircraft in the next year - three Airbus 330s and two A320s.

"We have adopted several measures to streamline the company and improve the operations through marketing enhancement, and we need to further develop in the next six months," airline president Yang Jianhong said during the opening ceremony of an aircraft hangar at Chek Lap Kok airport.

Losses at Hong Kong Airlines and sister company Hong Kong Express Airways had been sharply reduced, falling 75 per cent in the first four months from the same period last year, Mr Yang said.

This had been achieved through laying off pilots and cabin crew and reducing capacity by 30 to 40 per cent this year. However, Mr Yang did not provide any financial figures.

"Things are unlikely to turn around this year, but it could be possible next year," he said.

Mr Yang confirmed reports that Hong Kong Airlines and Hong Kong Express, both partially owned by HNA, were considering a merger.

Hong Kong Airlines, which operates eight Boeing 737-800 aircraft, and Hong Kong Express, which has six B737-800s, fly to about 20 destinations through code-sharing programmes.

Their combined network covers Beijing, Shanghai, Xiamen, Bangkok, Phuket and Okinawa.

Mr Yang denied reports that casino mogul Stanley Ho Hung-sun planned to offload his 25 per cent stake in Hong Kong Express.

HK April air cargo suffers biggest fall in 3 mths

HONG KONG, May 11 (Reuters) - Air cargo throughput via Hong Kong fell more rapidly in April, dropping 22.5 percent from a year earlier, indicating still very weak global demand despite signs of a pick-up in China's economy, data released by Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Ltd (Hactl) showed on Monday.

Hactl warned that the global spread of the new flu strain H1N1 could further delay recovery of the air cargo market. Year-on-year change in air cargo via Hong Kong:

Code:
 Apr    Mar    Feb    Jan    Dec    Nov   Oct
 -22.5  -21.1  -22.0  -30.9  -29.7  -19.0  -9.8
"Further to the already gloomy global economy, the current Influenza A (H1N1) poses another challenge to the overall market confidence, which may further delay the recovery of the air cargo industry," Hactl said in a statement.

"Though this is a difficult time for the whole industry, we strongly believe that Hong Kong and Hactl both have the good foundation to face the current challenge and the air cargo industry will rebound quickly upon economic recovery."

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 April totalled 174,809 tonnes, down 22.5 percent for the worst performance in three months.


Code:
     Breakdown of air cargo handled by Hactl in April:

Learn company creed or else, airlines warn staff
2 June 2009
South China Morning Post

Pilots and flight attendants with Hong Kong Airlines and Hong Kong Express have been ordered to memorise a lengthy creed about company values and threatened with punishment if they are unable to recite it in full.

The 10-line creed - described in a memo to staff as an "apophthegm", meaning a short, pithy and instructive saying - was circulated in English and Chinese a fortnight ago with a warning that random spot checks would be conducted by managers this month to make sure everyone had learned it.

Although apophthegms are by definition brief, the 68-word one circulated to all staff at the sister airlines is three words longer than the Christian Church's Lord's Prayer, and contains some even denser and more archaic phraseology.

Among its tougher-to-memorise lines are "Perseverance is the rule to sturdy progress", "Diligence leads research to accession of knowledge", "Careful recipe is the best medicine to health" and "Kindliness to youth endows the superior with virtue".

In an accompanying memo sent to all staff, employees were told to "study the following apophthegm thoroughly and apply it in daily life".

"All staff should keep firmly in mind the apophthegm," it says.

"Human resources department will follow up with the colleagues regarding on the practice of apophthegm after two to three weeks and management will conduct the random spot check after a month {hellip} please note that punishment will be given to those who could not recite the apophthegm."

The apophthegm is understood to have been borrowed from one used at Hainan Airlines, the mainland airline whose parent company is a majority shareholder in Hong Kong Airlines and Hong Kong Express.

A pilot with one of the two airlines, speaking on condition of anonymity, said: "Everyone is astounded by this instruction. It isn't as if we haven't got more important things to worry about.

"Flight attendants have been going around with the apophthegm written out on cards since the memo went out, trying their best to learn it whenever they get a free minute. I've seen them studying it on the buses on their way to work.

"They are very worried because no one has said what the punishment will be for not memorising it. Cabin crew are worried that it might be used as a way to get rid of staff [who] management don't want to keep on."

A flight attendant, who also asked not to be named, said: "It is very insulting. It's like being back in primary school. Do they think that threatening us with punishment is really the way to get the best out of employees?"

Asked about the apophthegm, Shirley Kwok, product manager for Hong Kong Express, declined to say who wrote it or what the intention was behind ordering staff to memorise it. "We are not able to comment on internal company policy," she said. She declined to say what punishment would be given to employees who failed to memorise the apophthegm, saying the memo was intended only for "internal colleagues".

John Findlay, general secretary of the Hong Kong Aircrew Officers Association, said: "When I first heard about this I thought it was a joke. When I discovered it was true I was incredulous.

"I have never heard of any reputable airline ordering staff to recite corporate culture words at the risk of being punished if not able to do so."

內地鐵路網 港航空業機遇
30 May 2009
星島日報

連接港深兩地機場的鐵路快將就可行性研究發表報告。在特區政府的管治危機日益嚴重和中港融合的大前提下,預料這個項目會一如報章所言盡快上馬,在維持香港航運中心競爭力的大前提下,即使耗費甚巨也不會遭遇到太大的反對聲音。但在決定興建這條鐵路前,尤其是動用數百億元公帑的時候,我們是否應該考慮哪一個方案更符合香港機場的長遠發展呢?要討論這個問題,我們應該將討論的層次提高,擴大至其他因素例如珠三角以外城市的連接及鐵路發展對交通模式的轉變等等。

城際鐵路 車程大減

從不同的研究報告指出,興建一條連接港深兩地機場的鐵路是不具成本效率的,兩個機場的客量根本不足以支持一條鐵路營運。於是最近的消息是傾向在港深兩地加設分站,既可藉本地綫來補貼鐵路本身的巨額潛在虧損,亦可加強珠三角與香港機場的連接,同時更可以減低社會的反對聲音。

即使加了兩個車站,又是否代表路綫的收益可以得到保證呢?根據深圳市軌道交通建設指揮部辦公室的工程簡介,他們預估每小時的客流量為三萬五千人。能否達這個目標實在抱有很大的疑問,在其經濟效率成疑問下,我們又是否沒有其他可行的替代方案呢?要維持香港機場的競爭力,擴大客源為必須的。除了繼續增加國際航綫上的選擇外,擴大內需亦是一個重要的任務。我們今天集中討論的內需普遍都只是局限於珠三角地區的客源,在內地鐵路發展一日千里下,我們更須考慮如何結合內地鐵路網完善香港機場和內地各城市之間的連接。

廣深港高速鐵路的(廣深段)的計畫中,有些車站提供了和其他城際鐵路的連結。例如新廣州站會和武廣客運專綫連結,新深圳站可以與東南部沿途城市連結。這些新鐵路大大縮短了城市之間的距離。對航空公司而言,快速而完善的鐵路網是內地航綫的最大敵人。在歐洲各大城市的交通網絡中,高速鐵路是一個頗受歡迎的選擇。除了價錢夠便宜外,免卻了繁複而費時的登機手續和接駁交通亦是重要的因素。由此可見,鐵路在中短程運輸具有極大的優勢。如果香港能善用內地鐵路網和本身優越的國際航綫網絡結合的話,我們很大機會在未來空運業維持一定的優勢。類似的合作在世界其他地方早有例子,在法國,國泰航空和法國國鐵的高速火車實施代號共享連接法國各大城市,能有此安排是因為巴黎戴高樂機場建立了連接各城市的鐵路網絡。

在香港要實行這個計畫,可以把廣深港高速鐵路香港段興建時在新界西北加設一個分支連接香港機場,而這個分支的所在點也可以考慮增設一個車站以促進新界西北的交通連接。儘管車程可能稍為延長,但對香港經濟發展絕對有正面的影響。在理解航空業的發展時,我們也應考慮內地鐵路發展能夠帶來的潛在機遇,因為在不久將來,城際鐵路不再是動輒十多二十小時的車程。

The source of this 'scheme' came from the mainland parent company. Perhaps still a lot of old school people in their management ranks.
