ahha...... it's a surprise to hear Continental has its AVOD installed overseas, half way around the globe, in HK.
Alright, it's time to find out how much tax break it has got away from the US government by doing the installation overseas.

I see some weird visitors at the hangar now and then. Before Delta livery took over NW, I saw a Delta jet parked in the hangar at HKG.

本港機場全球排名第五
頭條日報
2009-07-30


民航處長羅崇文表示,本港的民航系統,在國際民航組織全球安全監督審計計劃,得分近95%,在已完成審計的129個國家或地區中排名第5,亞洲區排第2。

羅崇文表示,本港在航空法規及安全監督方面,取得滿分,民航處會根據組織的建議,改善專業及技術人員的培訓。他預計新的航空交通管制中心,會在2013年第三季獨立運作,屆時機場每小時處理的航班數目會由現時57班,逐步增加至68班。

羅崇文又指,正檢討調整燃油附加費的機制,將檢討期由現時的兩個月,縮減至一個月,更緊貼國際油價起跌,對航空公司及乘客更為公平,希望在今年內有結果。

China's Spring Airlines to launch international flights
30 July 2009
Agence France Presse

Private Chinese carrier Spring Airlines has obtained approval to operate international flights and aims to list in Shanghai next year, state media reports said Thursday.

The carrier is set to launch its first trips to neighbouring countries and regions, including Hong Kong, Macao, Japan, South Korea and Russia, the Xinhua news agency reported, citing chairman Wang Zhenghua.

"We just got the approval. It still takes time to design specific routes, flight schedules and pricing," Wang was quoted as saying.

Shanghai-based Spring Airlines is the second private Chinese carrier to obtain permission to fly overseas.

East Star Airlines, based in Wuhan city in central China, won similar approval two years ago.

But it filed for bankruptcy protection last month after aviation authorities grounded it in March due to prolonged financial problems.

Spring Airlines plans to list on the Shanghai Stock Exchange in the second half of next year, the official China Daily said.

The carrier aims to expand its fleet by 2015 to 100 planes from the current 13, mostly with Airbus A320s, the newspaper quoted Wang as saying.

Spring Airlines posted a net profit of 41.2 million yuan (6 million dollars) in the first half of the year, almost double its full-year earnings of 21 million yuan for 2008, according to the report.

New Linked Canopies Offer Extra Protection to Cargoes
HACTL Press Release

(22 July 2009, Hong Kong) Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl) commemorated the completion of the construction of three external canopies on 21 July 2009. This forms an integral part of the Company’s ongoing drive to enhance operational and service excellence.

Situated at the northeastern corner of SuperTerminal 1, these three linked canopies cover 2,192 square metres in total and can simultaneously accommodate air cargoes for two 747-freighters under shelter, with enhanced protection against adverse weather. The total investment of the project is approximately HK$21 million, underlining Hactl’s dedication in providing premier cargo handling services to all airline customers and associated business partners across the supply chain.

“2009 has been a challenging year for the air cargo community and we have not been immune to those headwinds. However, we are determined that the current difficult economic environment should not prevent us from exploring creative ways towards increasingly better service to our customers for the long-term”, said Mr Kenneth Bell, Hactl’s Director of Service Delivery. “Air cargo tends to be more high-value by nature and these newly-developed airside canopies will not just bring improved weather protection for cargoes handled by Hactl, but also create associated cargo handling benefits to our customers and business partners.”
