Copters grounded after crash
Hong Kong Standard
Friday, June 05, 2009

Hong Kong Aviation Club will temporarily ground all single-engine helicopter operations following an investigation into a crash early last month that occurred during windy conditions.

Initial investigations into the May 1 crash in which three people were injured ruled out mechanical failure, the Civil Aviation Department said yesterday.

But single-engine helicopter operations will be suspended from the helipad at Kai Tak until extra safety measures are put in place.

"The accident may have been caused by the prevailing weather and the operating experience of the pilot in tailwind conditions," a spokesman said.

The department will be carrying out a further in-depth investigation before drawing a final conclusion about what caused the accident.

The two-seater Robinson R22 Beta II crashed into a parked tour bus near the aviation club, injuring the 48-year-old pilot Ng Shu-keung, his eight-year-old son and the bus driver.

The department said Ng had logged 318 hours of flying aircraft and helicopters of which 201 hours were on the R22.

Ng was returning from a three-hour flight but encountered difficulties in stabilizing the helicopter, spinning out of control as he attempted a third landing.

The helicopter crashed roughly 100 meters from the landing pad near Sung Wong Toi Road, Kowloon City. TIMOTHY CHUI

Pilot's inexperience and winds blamed for crash
5 June 2009
South China Morning Post

Weather and the lack of experience of a pilot in tailwind conditions may be the causes of the May 1 crash of a helicopter into a parked tour bus in Kowloon City, according to a preliminary report released yesterday.

The Civil Aviation Department report said the accident could have been caused by "the prevailing weather at the time of the accident and the operating experience of the pilot under tailwind conditions".

"Under the effect of a prevailing wind of east-southeast at 16 knots and controlling the helicopter towards the northwest in a tailwind, the pilot encountered difficulties in stabilising the helicopter during the first approach and performed a go-around," the report said.

The report revealed the pilot attempted a second approach and decided to perform another due to difficulties in stabilising the aircraft.

"As he was making a turn to the right, the helicopter started a spin in a clockwise direction. While the helicopter was spinning, it began to lose altitude and drifted in a northerly direction until it impacted the windscreen of a coach parked in the parking lot," the report continued.

The pilot held a Hong Kong private pilot's licence for helicopters and a valid medical certificate, and had 318 hours of flying experience.

The department has recommended that single-engined helicopter operations at Kai Tak should be suspended temporarily, and will continue to collect information to determine the circumstances and causes of the accident.

"More in-depth investigation and analysis work has to be done before a conclusion can be drawn on what caused the accident," a department spokesman said.

The 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 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.

South Korea's Incheon voted world's best airport

SINGAPORE, June 9 (Reuters) - South Korea's Incheon International Airport was voted the best in the world for 2009 in an annual survey dominated by Asian airports.

The survey, by British-based consultancy Skytrax, covered more than 190 airports and is based on the results from 8.6 million passenger questionnaires completed from 2008 to 2009.

Incheon narrowly beat Hong Kong International Airport, last year's number one which came in second, and Singapore's Changi, which fell to third place this year from number 2 in 2008.

Skytrax said in a statement that the final margins between the top three airports were so narrow that at one stage the company thought it would have a three-way tie for first place in the "World Airport Awards".

"Incheon is an airport that has been in the global top 5 ranking for the World Airport Awards during the past 5-6 years, and it is a great achievement for them to secure this premier mark of customer satisfaction," Skytrax CEO Edward Plaisted said.

The survey evaluates traveller experiences across 39 different airport service and products, ranging from check-in, arrivals, transfer through to departure at the gate.

Switzerland's Zurich airport was the highest ranked European airport, and was also voted the best in the region, coming in at number 4, while Germany's Munich airport was voted in at number 5, the same position it was in last year.

Japan's Kansai and Centrair Nagoya airports were also among the top 10, as was Malaysia's Kuala Lumpur airport.

New Zealand's Auckland airport, which was also voted the best in the Australia-Pacific region, rounded up the top 10.

In the regional categories, Dallas/Fort Worth was voted the best airport for North America, Peru's Lima the best for South America and Panama's airport the best in Central America.

Tel Aviv aws voted the Middle East's best airport and Cape Town the best in Africa.

(A list of the world's top 10 airports is on www.airlinequality.com/news/090609_Airports.htm)

Deccan 360 air freight link to Hong Kong ready for take-off
8 June 2009
Lloyd's List

AN AIR cargo and logistics venture has been launched by Deccan 360, a newly formed airline that has just inaugurated freighter services between India and Hong Kong, writes Keith Wallis.

The carrier is targeting the automotive, textile, pharmaceutical and retail sectors in its quest to expand from a single 25-tonne capacity Airbus A310 freighter to six aircraft by the end of this year.

The airline was founded by Gorur Ramaswamy Gopinath, who owns 8% of Deccan 360, as a partnership between Kingfisher Airways and Air Deccan, which he formed in 2003. Deccan 360 is offering airfreight, logistics and distribution services.

The carrier operates two flights per week between Delhi and Hong Kong via Chennai and Dubai using one A310. Deccan 360 plans to add two more A310s on international routes plus three ATR turboprop aircraft that can carry up to nearly eight tonnes that will be used on express feeder operations in India.

The airline is also building a 40 ha cargo hub at Nagpur and is contracting India’s GMR group to operate express cargo facilities at Delhi and Hyderabad airports. In Hong Kong, Deccan 360 is using the Asia Airfreight Terminal.

Commenting on the market potential, Deccan 360 said India’s express air cargo market is set to grow by 18%-20% per annum over the next few years despite the global slowdown.

“Rapid growth in the domestic express market is expected to be driven by manufacturing growth, heavy infrastructure investments and increased express penetration,” the airline said.

The carrier is in talks with potential investors, both about taking a stake in the airline and setting up trucking and logistics operations in India that will be developed as Deccan 360 franchises.

Mr Gopinath said two of the airline investors are based in the US while a third is in Europe, although he did not identify them. He envisaged the ground-based logistics services could involve up to 100 franchisees.

He added: “I am in talks, but we will wait for two or three months as operations get started and investor confidence improves.”

Deccan 360 was formed with about $30m of equity. Mr Gopinath said a further cash injection of $25m-$30m would be needed over the next six months to finance expansion.

Plans take wing for outlet mall at airport
10 June 2009
South China Morning Post

Plans to establish Hong Kong as a centre for premium outlet shopping could be realised soon as the government seeks ways to promote trade, tourism and economic growth in the economic downturn.

The Outlet! Company is looking to set up shop near the airport, on a site between Terminal Two and the AsiaWorld-Expo venue. The site is currently occupied by car parks and a temporary golf course.

Premium outlet malls sell merchandise, often surplus stock, of many brands at discounted prices. The concept allows retailers to move excess inventory.

The Outlet! Company president Daniel Kelly said he thought the government was seriously considering a recommendation from its Task Force on Economic Challenges to develop a new premium outlet centre. "I think they're at a point now where they're looking to make a final decision," he said. "So I don't think it's far off."

"The government, from the very early days, has been very supportive. They understand that it is a combination of commerce as well as tourism. They have offered land before but just not the right piece of land."

Although Mr Kelly has been talking to various government departments about the privately funded project for about nine months, he said there was no concrete deal on the table yet.

Outlet malls are not new to Hong Kong but have met with varying degrees of success. A number of major retailers have their own outlets, like Joyce Boutique and Lane Crawford. Swire Properties managed to rejuvenate Citygate shopping centre in Tung Chung by turning it into an outlet mall with year-round discounts of between 30 per cent and 70 per cent on more than 60 brands.

The proposed site is already earmarked for commercial use, and a premium outlet mall would not interfere with AsiaWorld-Expo's expansion plans - but the final decision on the land use rests with the Airport Authority. An authority spokesman said it was working on its 2030 master plan and had not yet decided on the long-term use of its land.

Under the proposal, a premium outlet shopping mall would be developed in phases. The first phase is expected to cover between 40,000 square metres and 50,000 square metres and feature 150 to 200 shops. The entire site of more than 150,000 square metres would include 300 street-level shops with some two-storey buildings. Investors interested in the project include Global Sources, which stages trade shows at AsiaWorld-Expo.

News Releases

A380 To Fly To The Pearl Of The Orient
11 June 2009

Singapore Airlines will fly the world’s largest passenger aircraft, the Airbus A380, on the Singapore-Hong Kong route from 9 July 2009.

Hong Kong will be the fifth international destination and second Asian city which Singapore Airlines operates the superjumbo aircraft to. The Airline started operating the A380 in October 2007 to Sydney and subsequently added services to London, Tokyo and Paris.

The daily A380 flights will replace an existing daily B777-300ER service to Hong Kong. The operation of the 471-seat Singapore Airlines A380 to Hong Kong represents an increase of 10% in seat capacity to the city.

“The operation of the A380 to Hong Kong shows our confidence in the demand for both business and leisure travel between Singapore and the famed ‘Pearl of the Orient’. Hong Kong is a vibrant business hub and at the same time it has much to offer leisure travellers looking for great places to shop, eat and play,” said Mr. Huang Cheng Eng, Singapore Airlines’ Executive Vice President, Marketing and the Regions.

Following the commencement of the A380 service, SQ862, from Singapore to Hong Kong, will be re-numbered SQ856. SQ856 will depart Singapore Changi Airport at 0945hrs and arrive in Hong Kong at 1330hrs. On the return leg, SQ861 will depart Hong Kong International Airport at 1600hrs and touch down in Singapore at 1940hrs.

Singapore Airlines currently operates five daily non-stop flights between Singapore and Hong Kong, along with daily non-stop services between Hong Kong and San Francisco.

Customers travelling on the Singapore Airlines A380 to Hong Kong will experience unrivalled standards of luxury and sophistication in air travel.

Exclusively available on the A380 are the Singapore Airlines Suites. Each Suite customer enjoys a high level of privacy in his own cabin in the sky, behind sliding doors and adjustable roller blinds. The Suites come furnished with a luxurious and fully adjustable leather seat, upholstered by world-renowned Poltrona Frau, and a full-sized bed. For entertainment, customers can enjoy crystal-clear images on a sleek 23-inch high-resolution LCD monitor, mounted on the wall in each Suite.

The Singapore Airlines A380 Business Class is in a league of its own. Measuring 86 centimetres (34 inches) in width, the Business Class seat is one of the widest in the world and each has direct access to the aisle. Each seat can be converted into a comfortable wide bed, simply by folding down the seat back.

Singapore Airlines’ new Economy Class seats offer customers unprecedented comfort and space. The ergonomically designed seat not only maximises knee and legroom, it also boasts intelligent features such as a non-intrusive reading light and height-adjustable leather headrests with side panels.

Customers across all three classes can enjoy a wide range of the latest movies, TV programmes and a library of CDs on KrisWorld, Singapore Airlines’ award-winning inflight entertainment system. Come mealtime, delectable inflight meals, designed exclusively by world-class chefs like Matt Moran from Australia, Zhu Jun from China and Sam Leong from Singapore, are served and presented on exclusive Givenchy-designed service ware.

Singapore Airlines currently has eight A380s in service, a further 11 on firm order, and options on six more.

HONG KONG SIGNS AIR SERVICES AGREEMENT WITH MALDIVES

HONG KONG, June 12 Asia Pulse - Hong Kong's 59th air services agreement was signed in Hong Kong Thursday with the Republic of Maldives.

JAL to cut flights in Asia on slow recovery
15 June 2009
Agence France Presse

Asia's largest carrier, Japan Airlines (JAL), said Monday it would temporarily reduce flights in the region due to lower demand caused by the global economic crisis.

The number of round-trip flights between Narita International Airport, the main gateway to Tokyo, and Beijing will be cut from 19 to 14 a week between August 1 and October 24, the company said in a statement.

JAL will also reduce the number of weekly flights between Narita and Seoul from 28 to 21 between July 1 and October 24. There are to be other cuts on its Narita routes to Taipei, Shanghai and New Delhi.

It will also cut flights between Haneda, another Tokyo airport, and Hong Kong in September and October, and between Kansai in western Japan and Seoul from August 1 to October 24. It will reduce services between Kansai and Shanghai over the same period.

"Due to the impact of the recession, a recovery in demand for flights has been delayed and we plan to secure profitability by adjusting our supply capacity," JAL said in a statement.

A company spokesman said the airline would raise the number of flights to current levels following these periods.

The International Air Transport Association said last week that the Asia-Pacific, which is forecast to lose 3.3 billion dollars in 2009, or more than a third of global losses, may see a recovery next year.

Hong Kong May air cargo throughput drops 18.6 pct

HONG KONG, June 11 (Reuters) - Air cargo throughput via Hong Kong fell 18.6 percent in May, the smallest monthly decline since October but still damped by weak global demand, particularly in Europe, data from Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Ltd showed on Thursday.

In April, cargo dropped 19.8 percent from a year earlier.

Cargo exported to Europe in May slumped more than 30 percent from a year earlier, but throughput to the Middle East and Africa surged 21 percent and 21.5 percent respectively.

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

Air cargo volumes through Hong Kong in May totalled 117,980 tonnes.
