Airport passenger volume down 3.5%

Airport passenger volume down 3.5%
18-10-09
news.gov.hk


September saw a 3.5% drop in passenger volume at Hong Kong International Airport to 3.5 million, while cargo throughput and air traffic movements fell 4.3% to 304,000 tonnes and 8% to 22,570, the Airport Authority says.

Authority Chief Executive Officer Stanley Hui said the mild year-on-year cuts in passenger and cargo traffic showed contractions continue to narrow.

He noted one passenger and six freighter airlines have resumed or started operating at the airport since July, reflecting well on their confidence in Hong Kong and the aviation industry.

The fall in passenger volume was largely due to weak visitor traffic, particularly from markets like Taiwan and North America. Transfer and transit passengers also dropped 11% year-on-year, mainly due to declining traffic from the Mainland and Taiwan markets.

Travel made by Hong Kong residents, however, recorded 9% growth. Exports and transshipments saw declines of 4% and 15%, while imports grew 6%. Drops in air traffic volumes have continued to narrow in the last three months.

Comparing year-on-year movements on a quarterly basis, the fall in passenger volume has reduced from 7.1% in the first quarter to 3.5% in the third, while cargo volume dropped 22.9% in the first quarter and 5.9% in in the third.

The airport handled 34.2 million passenger trips and 2.4 million tonnes of cargo from January to September, down 6.6% and 15.1%. Air traffic movements fell 7.9% to 207,850.

On a rolling 12-month basis there were 46.2 million passenger trips, 3.2 million tonnes of cargo and 283,370 flight movements, down 6%, 16% and 6.2%.

Bolstered by Growing Global Alliances, Delta Strengthens International Schedules for Summer 2010
Airline maintains discipline by reallocating existing capacity to new routes


Excerpt from : http://news.delta.com/index.php?s=43&item=776

ATLANTA, Oct. 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) today announced a series of schedule enhancements to strengthen its international network for summer 2010. The changes - which will expand service for customers in 17 cities - leverage Delta's industry-leading joint venture with Air France-KLM, growing alliance relationship with Alaska Air Group and increased fleet flexibility gained from its merger with Northwest.

(Logo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20090202/DELTALOGO )

"No other airline has the alliance partners, fleet flexibility or network breadth to consistently deliver new routes for customers while at the same time being responsible in managing capacity in the face of a global economic recession," said Glen Hauenstein, Delta's executive vice president - Network Planning and Revenue Management. "As America's flag carrier to the world, Delta's 2010 schedule will bring new nonstop service to dozens of communities around the globe, thanks to the strength of our worldwide alliances."

Delta's 2010 changes are part of the first fully consolidated schedule published following Delta's merger with Northwest, allowing the airline to reallocate existing capacity to new routes. Delta also will maintain many of the international route reductions it announced in June in response to decreased global demand.

Trans-Pacific

By June 2010, Delta will add new nonstop routes from its primary U.S.-to-Asia gateways in Detroit and Seattle and realign flights at its Tokyo-Narita hub to better match capacity to demand.

From Detroit, Delta will introduce new nonstop service to Seoul-Incheon and Hong Kong and expand service between Detroit and Shanghai. Delta has continued to position Detroit as a major gateway to Asia thanks to its strategic geographic position for millions of customers who travel between the U.S. East Coast and Asia. Detroit offers customers 477 peak-day departures to more than 130 nonstop destinations.

At Seattle, Delta's Asian expansion is powered by its partnership with Alaska Air Group. New nonstop flights from Seattle to Beijing and Osaka will be timed for convenient connections with Delta and Alaska's 267 combined daily departures to 64 destinations from Seattle/Tacoma, and will complement Delta's existing daily service to Tokyo-Narita. Delta and Alaska offer customers reciprocal codeshare, lounge and frequent flyer benefits to make it easier to connect between the airlines' domestic and international networks at Seattle.

At Tokyo-Narita Delta will resume seasonal nonstop service between Tokyo and Salt Lake City (operating five times weekly); resume three weekly summer flights between Tokyo and Atlanta to complement daily year-round service; expand capacity between Tokyo and New York-JFK with the upgrade of Boeing 777-200 to 747-400 aircraft; and expand service between Tokyo and Los Angeles with four additional weekly 777-200 flights to complement daily year-round service. With these changes, Delta will offer Narita customers more than 25 daily departures to more than 20 nonstop destinations.

"Delta is committed to providing customers with convenient options between the most popular business and leisure destinations across Asia and our global network, connecting Asia to more points in the U.S. and beyond than any U.S. carrier," Hauenstein said. "Since Delta's first flight to Asia in 1987, we have become the region's premier U.S. airline through organic growth and our merger with Northwest. Delta's tailored customer experience on our more than 500 weekly flights throughout Asia includes regional foods and in-flight service representatives who provide language translations."

Customer experience

Customers on the new flights will have the opportunity to experience Delta's award-winning BusinessElite service, including innovative food offerings from celebrity chef Michelle Bernstein and original wine selections chosen by Delta's Master Sommelier Andrea Robinson. BusinessElite also features on-demand personal in-seat entertainment boasting more than 20 first-run and popular classic movies, a variety of TV programs, thousands of music titles and a suite of video games.

Routes operated with Delta's new Boeing 777-200LR aircraft offer BusinessElite customers a fully flat, six-foot, three-inch bed in a one-two-one configuration, which provides every customer with direct aisle access. With next summer's schedule, Delta's fleet of 777-200LR aircraft will be operated on its longest flights, including Atlanta to Dubai; Atlanta to Tel Aviv; Atlanta to Johannesburg; Los Angeles to Tokyo-Narita; Los Angeles to Sydney; and Detroit to Hong Kong. Summer 2010 will mark the first time the 777-200LR has flown in scheduled service from Tokyo-Narita with service to Atlanta and Los Angeles.

Detailed information on Delta's in-flight products and services, as well as additional fleet information, is available at delta.com. Fares and schedules for the new flights also are available online beginning today. The airline's expanding global network also benefits Delta Cargo customers, opening up more opportunities to ship directly to more markets than any carrier in the world. More information is available at deltacargo.com.

The Airport Authority and HKGOV is planning to build a third terminal that will be situated between the two runways, west of terminal one.


機場研建三號客運樓
(明報)2009年10月15日 星期四 05:10

【明報專訊】前年施政報告公布了十大基建項目,今年的施政報告則只提航空基建發展。特首曾蔭權 表示,為支持物流業,機管局 會推行「機場飛行區中場範圍發展計劃」,提供額外的飛機停泊位及新的機場客運廊,以應付2020年的空運需求,研究會在明年完成;政府消息人士指出,政府正研究三號客運大樓計劃。

機管局董事何鍾泰 表示,機管局正進行《香港國際機場 2030 規劃大綱》,將考慮機場客運增長,再決定需要什麼設施,「正考慮三號客運大樓,但未到最後階段,仍研究中」;「機場飛行區中場範圍發展計劃」則屬另一研究,考慮機場島中心的發展可能,「除了停機坪、客運廊外,亦會考慮周邊所需的設施,好像行李運輸系統等」。現時機場處理航班能力為每小時58班,機管局主席張建東 發表聲明表示,預計在新設施落成後,2015年可幫助機場客運處理量達至65班。

葵青擬建物流群組 業界憂變地產項目

曾蔭權亦表示,因葵青區鄰近貨櫃碼頭和機場,已在該處物色了數塊用地,明年推出市面,希望建設「物流群組」。貨櫃碼頭商會主席李耀光表示,歡迎政府增撥用地,但他指出,現時業界最需要的是存放貨櫃的用地,擔心政府最後把用地變成地產項目,「變成寫字樓,對業界無甚幫助」。

The existing terminal is already between the two runways. They layout is the runways radiate from the terminal in a parallel fashion. Should be OK.

Lawmakers question benefits of airport link
24 October 2009
SCMP

The government would not insist on building a rail link to connect the airports of Hong Kong and Shenzhen unless it was satisfied it would do Hong Kong more good than harm, the transport chief said.

Officials are examining the flow of air passengers and cargo between the two airports.

Lawmakers asked transport minister Eva Cheng yesterday whether the proposed HK$50 billion line would in fact offer more benefits to Shenzhen's Baoan airport than to Hong Kong's. Cheng said the link could be of benefit if passengers were allowed to check in at Qianhai - the only intermediate station - as they are able to do at the Kowloon station of the Airport Express. Qianhai is set to be a new business and financial-services hub for Shenzhen.

"Our home carriers Cathay Pacific and Dragonair welcome this project; they believe it could help them develop Hong Kong into an aviation hub," she said.

But lawmaker Regina Ip Lau Suk-yee, an independent, said Cathay had told her it would not support a split hub - with Shenzhen handling domestic flights while Hong Kong focuses on international routes.

Ronny Tong Ka-wah of the Civic Party asked if Hong Kong needed to rely on Shenzhen for domestic connections. "Our air connection with the mainland is just 30 destinations short of Shenzhen airport's," he noted. "Why don't we develop direct flights instead?"

A government official said most of those 30 destination cities were too small to justify direct flights. The official also said that while airline officials do not in general support airport co-operation, they were hopeful the link could bring more international travellers from the area around the Qianhai station.

Dragonair bets on Indian traffic taking off to Hong Kong, China
27 October 2009
Business Line

Hong Kong-based airline Dragonair says it has started seeing a small uptick in traffic at its lone Indian port of call Bangalore and plans to capture a wide variety of travellers to and from the city, Hong Kong and mainland China.

The priority is to restore daily flights between Bangalore and Hong Kong very soon, Mr James Tong, Chief Executive Officer of Dragonair (officially Hong Kong Dragon Airlines Ltd), said.

India was a small dot yet for the carrier but was unfolding as a growth area. It was connected by air with Hong Kong and from there to mainland China. With a little promotional push, the country, with its beautiful locales, food and resorts, can be a hot draw for leisure and corporate travellers from Hong Kong and China, Mr Tong told a group of Indian journalists invited to the inaugural flight between Hong Kong and Guangzhou in southern China.

ADVANCE BOOKING

Advance bookings between Bangalore and Hong Kong were showing signs of a revival next year. "We now want to capture diverse segments of travellers such as students and businessmen" for the Bangalore-Hong Kong-China segments, he added. He hoped the new twice-daily 50-minute hop to Guangzhou would catalyse travel between India, Hong Kong and southern China.

Indians and West Asians were already trading in textiles, electronics and consumer goods in Guangzhou.

The load factor from Bangalore also looked better than in early 2009. "We want more Indian investments and more Indians to come to Hong Kong and China."

Guangzhou, on the Pearl River delta, borders the Shenzhen special economic zone. IT, telecom, automotive and many Fortune 500 companies have a base there and the city is emerging as a new gateway to China. The nearby town of Dongguan is shaping up as China's own Bangalore. Guangzhou is also gearing up to host the Asian Games in November 2010.

DAILY BANGALORE

On Indian operations, Mr Tong said the airline started flying daily to Bangalore in July 2008 but had to cut to four times a week in February this year after being stung by the `financial tsunami'.

While other Indian cities could wait, "we hope to go back to flying daily again very soon." Hong Kong, the nearby casino city of Macau and the mainland could be a new package for Indians. Without giving figures, he said, "[Traffic] was quite low earlier this year. Especially the front-end business and first class (traffic) were badly affected, as IT and business professionals were not travelling any more. But come September-October, some business is coming back."

Dragonair operates 400 flights weekly to 29 Asian, mostly Chinese cities. Mr Tong said it was consolidating its airline business rather than diversifying, "but you can never say."
