More competition on Hong Kong route
24 June 2010
Bangkok Post

The skies over Bangkok and Hong Kong are getting more crowded with the arrival of Hong Kong Airlines, which began scheduled daily service between the two cities on June 11.

Despite the poor travel environment in the wake of the May riots, the Hong Kong-based affiliate of the Chinese carrier Hainan Airlines is going ahead with the plan it had made earlier, as it has recently taken delivery of a new 283-seat Airbus A330-200 jet.

It believes it can find a niche on a route dominated by heavyweights Cathay Pacific and Thai Airways International. The two account for most of the 25 daily flights on the Bangkok-Hong Kong route. The figure is down from 30 flights earlier, as airlines have cut some flights in light of weaker demand and low-season factors.

"There is room for our carrier. Bangkok remains a popular destination for Hong Kong, notwithstanding political problems," said Lucian Hsing, Hong Kong Airlines' manager for Thailand.

The airline intends to introduce a secondly daily flight in October, pending approval from the Thai government.

The additional service will be made possible by the delivery of four more A330-200s in the fourth quarter, and the anticipation that demand on the sector would rebound in the high season.

Hong Kong Airlines hopes to be able to offer the second daily flight from Bangkok in the morning, a more popular time than its current 7.25 pm departure from Suvarnabhumi Airport.

Mr Hsing said traffic out of Bangkok remained weak but Hong Kong Airlines saw a more robust inbound demand from the territory.

Hong Kong Airlines claims a load factor of 70-80% on the route, considered good for a new entrant.

Together with the sister airline, Hong Kong Express Airways, Hong Kong Airlines offers passenger and cargo services to more than 20 cities in mainland China, Asia and Europe.

Aviation passenger fuel surcharges adjusted
Wednesday, July 21, 2010
http://www.info.gov.hk/gia/general/2...1007210167.htm

The Civil Aviation Department (CAD) today (July 21) gave approval for passenger fuel surcharges levied by three airlines to be reduced for the period from August 1 to 31, 2010.

The new maximum levels of fuel surcharges will be $98 for short-haul flights and $505 for long-haul flights, representing a reduction of 7% and 2% from the current maximum levels for short and long-haul flights respectively. The applicable surcharge levels are based on the ticket issue date. (These airlines and their newly approved fuel surcharge levels are listed in the Annex.)

Passenger fuel surcharges seek to allow airlines to partially recover the increase in operational costs due to fluctuations in aviation fuel prices. As the aeronautical authority in Hong Kong, the CAD considers and approves fuel surcharge applications from the airlines in accordance with bilateral Air Services Agreements.

Passenger fuel surcharges are reviewed regularly by the CAD. The last review was done at the end of June when the maximum surcharge levels approved by the CAD were $105 for short-haul flights and $513 for long-haul flights.

Probe focus on tail in chopper plunge
The Standard
Wednesday, July 28, 2010





The investigation into the East Asia Airlines helicopter that made a forced landing in Victoria Harbour on July 3 may now be focusing on the tail rotor and the tail gearbox, a preliminary report has indicated.

Both pilots of the AgustaWestland AW139 helicopter heard a loud bang, followed by the failure of the tail rotor, before the chopper ditched 16 seconds later, the report released yesterday said.

The tail rotor and the tail gearbox, which were recovered after a search, have been sent to the Air Accidents Investigation Branch in Britain for examination, test and analysis. None of the 11 passengers was injured.

The Macau-bound helicopter had completed post-takeoff checks from the Sheung Wan/Sky Shuttle Heliport and was passing more than 100 meters above Victoria Harbour when the pilots heard a loud bang from the rear of the helicopter. This was followed by airframe vibrations.

"At the same time, the captain found that he had no authority on the pedal controls and determined that the tail rotor of the helicopter had failed," the report said.

The captain put the helicopter into autorotation and ordered the first officer to shut down both engines. He also issued a Mayday call before making "a controlled ditching" in the water.

The tail rotor and the tail gearbox were salvaged from the harbor on July 14 but one of the four blades of the tail rotor is still missing.

A spokesman for the Civil Aviation Department said: "More in-depth investigation and analysis work has to be done before any conclusion can be drawn."

That is expected to take more than a year.

Cathay Pacific welcomes new air services arrangement enabling flights to Shanghai’s Hongqiao Airport
16 July 2010
Cathay Pacific Press Release

Cathay Pacific Airways today welcomed the announcement by the HKSAR Government that the Hongqiao International Airport in Shanghai will be added as a destination for scheduled air services between Hong Kong and the mainland of China.

Cathay Pacific Chief Executive Tony Tyler said: "Shanghai is a very important destination for Cathay Pacific and Dragonair. We welcome the new arrangement as it will offer airlines more opportunities to further enhance services between the two cities that will benefit passengers from all over the world. The new arrangement will also help to ensure Hong Kong retains its position as one of the world’s leading aviation hubs."

Mr. Tyler commended the Civil Aviation Administration of China and the Transport and Housing Bureau of the Hong Kong SAR Government for putting in place the new arrangement. “As Hong Kong’s home carrier we are committed to linking mainland China to the world, and we applaud the Government’s efforts to further enhancing air services between Hong Kong and the mainland of China,” Mr. Tyler said.

Cathay Pacific currently operates three flights daily between Hong Kong and the Pudong International Airport in Shanghai.

HKIA Master Plan 2030

The new HKIA Masterplan 2030 was completed last year. Although the Master Plan 2030 hasn't been published yet, according to a paper presented to HK legislators in May 2010 by the Airport Authority, there will be no X-shaped midfield concourse as depicted in previous versions of master plans. Separate linear concourses at right angle to the existing parallel runways will be built in lieu.

The latest plan is to build one Phase 1 linear midfield concourse (20 parking stands, 11 of which are served by air bridges) by 2015. Phase 2, envisaged to be completed by 2020, will see an extension of the Phase 1 concourse such that all the Phase 1 parking stands will be served by air bridges, plus an additional 10 remote parking stands to the west of the linear concourse.

Upon completion of Phase 2 linear midfield concourse, together with other measures to increase the runway capacity, HKIA will be able to handle 70M passengers annually, compared to the current 50M.

Mott MacDonald consultant has been appointed to carry out the scheme design and the detailed design of the linear concourse and the associated apron areas.

The master plan also allow for addition of another linear concourse further west if demand warrants.

Here is a glimpse of Phase 1 and 2 of the proposed midfield development.

Is it a good change, from X-shaped concourse to separate linear concourses?

Passengers sit in over storm delay
The Standard
Friday, July 30, 2010







Forty-one passengers on a Dragonair flight from Shanghai early yesterday refused to disembark, complaining they had been badly treated during an 11-hour delay.

The sit-in lasted for five hours before Dragonair management promised cash compensation and free breakfasts at 6.30am.

The airline also offered free hotel accommodation to those remaining in Hong Kong, though most of the 41 were connecting with flights to other destinations.

Flight KA-803 departed from Shanghai at 11.30am on Wednesday and was due in Hong Kong at 2pm.

However, due to the lightning and black rainstorm warning it was diverted to Macau where it landed at 3.13pm.

The 280 passengers were further delayed by civil aviation guidelines on flight crews' duty hours so a replacement crew had to be sent.

The aircraft eventually left Macau at midnight, arriving in Hong Kong an hour later. Most of the passengers disembarked but 41 remained in their seats.

"It was completely a trap to cheat us," said a passenger surnamed Xu, traveling with his family.

"We felt like we were abandoned after landing in Macau. A deputy manager from Dragonair just appeared once and asked us to wait."

Xu said during the long wait a pregnant woman fell sick and requested hot water as well as a blanket but no crew member offered assistance.

The airline offered passengers a meal during their wait and arranged for those in a hurry to take a high-speed ferry back to Hong Kong at 8pm.

"No cabin crew member provided a reasonable explanation for the poor arrangement," Xu said.

Another passenger, who took a connecting flight to Phnom Penh at 9am yesterday, said: "We stayed on board and refused to leave until the company promised compensation."

A Dragonair spokesman apologized and said affected travelers staying in Hong Kong would be provided with hotel accommodation or transport to their destinations.

However, 33 passengers caught connecting flights to Phnom Penh or Taipei.

A total of 203 flights were delayed during Wednesday's lightning and black rainstorm warning.

A FedEx cargo plane, which left Hong Kong at 8pm for Paris, had to return and make an emergency landing after being struck by lightning about 100 minutes into the flight.

Wonderful. Looks like HKIA is taking a leaf out of Heathrow Airport on their T1-to-T4 expansion over the years. Long may HKG never be in the "best airport ranking in the world ever"...

HKIA would never become top notch airport again with this kind of vision.

Having said that, Incheon is also expanding its capacity by linear satellite concourses, and I know the first one has been openeed. Don't know the feedback.

747 turned back
30 July 2010
Daily Telegraph

A QANTAS Boeing 747 flying from Hong Kong to Sydney was forced to return to the airport after suffering an engine surge yesterday.

The 327 passengers on board the aircraft had already spent four hours sitting on the tarmac without food because of bad weather and mechanical problems before the engine problems, which occurred as the aircraft climbed away from the airport.

After returning to Hong Kong, one passenger fainted at the immigration desk.

Passengers were put up at a hotel.

The flight was due to depart Hong Kong at 9pm last night for Sydney.

HK Aircraft Engineering 1st-Half Net HK$338 Mln; Down 21% On Year
3 August 2010

HONG KONG (Dow Jones)--Engineering services firm Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering Co. (0044.HK), known as Haeco, said Tuesday its first-half net profit fell 21% from a year earlier partly due to a smaller contribution from its Xiamen operations.

The Hong Kong-listed company, which is controlled by conglomerate Swire Pacific Ltd., said its net profit for the six months ended June 30 totaled HK$338 million, down from HK$430 million a year earlier.

Revenue fell 5% to HK$2.05 billion from HK$2.17 billion.

The company recommended a first-half dividend of HK$0.45, down from HK$0.5 a year earlier.

Passenger and Cargo Figures Set New Records in First Half
Press Release

HONG KONG, 19 July 2010 – Passenger and cargo traffic of Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) hit record highs of 24.5 million and 2 million tonnes during the first six months of the year, representing yearly growth of 9.3% and 35.1% respectively. Air traffic movements also rose 4.9% over the same period last year to 144,970.

The strong first-half performance was supported by robust traffic in June. During the month, passenger traffic recorded a yearly increase of 26.2%, reaching 4.2 million; air traffic movements were up 15.3% to 24,795; and cargo throughput surged 28.6% to 347,000 tonnes. This was the first time since July 2005 that the airport saw double-digit growth in all three traffic categories, partly due to the low base for comparison in 2009.

In June, Hong Kong resident travels grew by 28% while visitors surged by close to 40% year on year. The number of transfer/ transit passengers also saw healthy growth of 13%. Passenger traffic to/ from South East Asia, the Mainland, Japan and Taiwan showed more than 20% growth when compared with June 2009, when travel was dampened by the outbreak of Influenza A (H1N1).

For cargo, almost all of HKIA's key markets recorded double-digit growth last month, driven mainly by strong exports, which registered overall growth of over 40%. In particular, exports to Europe and North America increased by 44% and 81% respectively as the global economy continued to rebound. During the month, imports grew 26% while transshipments were up 4%.

Stanley Hui Hon-chung, Chief Executive Officer of Airport Authority Hong Kong, said, "We are pleased with the airport's strong performance over the first half of this year. During the past few months a number of new records have been set, and our average passenger throughput now reaches about 150,000 per day. Meanwhile, cargo growth remains healthy despite having slowed down to a more normal pace in June after months of extraordinary growth.

"We are confident that this momentum will continue into the summer, which is a seasonally busy time for holiday travel. We are seeing more airlines, both passenger and cargo, launching new routes, re-launching routes that had previously been suspended, and new airlines commencing new services to HKIA. In light of the expanded aviation services at HKIA and the continued rebound of the economy, we believe our annual passenger and cargo volume this year will likely exceed pre-crisis levels," Mr Hui added.

From April to June this year, the airport handled a total of 12.5 million passengers, 1.1 million tonnes of air cargo and 74,900 flight movements, representing cumulative growth of 11.9%, 36.1% and 8.6% respectively.
