Aviation passenger fuel surcharges adjusted
Tuesday, September 21, 2010
Government Press Release

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

The new maximum levels of fuel surcharges will be $100 for short-haul flights and $506 for long-haul flights, which represent an increase of 3% and 5% 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 August when the maximum surcharge levels approved by CAD were $97 for short-haul flights and $481 for long-haul flights.

Flights arriving and taking off from Hong Kong International Airport set a monthly record of 27,135 last month, up 14.5 percent from a year ago, on robust demand during the peak summer season.

The Airport Authority said a record 880 aircraft landed or took off each day. Cross-border land and sea transit traffic linking up with Chek Lap Kok also saw record highs.

Meanwhile, passenger and cargo volumes continued to improve, though edging down slightly from July.

"We anticipate the coming months will continue to see growth, as travel usually peaks at year-end, and in particular, during festivals or holidays such as the Mid-Autumn Festival and the National Day Golden Week," authority chief executive Stanley Hui Hon-chung said.

Last month, the airport handled 4.7 million passengers and 346,000 tonnes of cargo, up 9.2 percent and 17 percent from last year. In July, there were 4.73 million passengers and 363,000 tonnes of cargo.

The number of residents flying in and out surged 19 percent, while visitors climbed 12 percent from last year. The authority said passenger traffic to and from the mainland and Southeast Asia was the highest among major regions.

Stronger air passenger figures spilled over to boost land and sea transport. A total of 227,000 passengers - up 33 percent year on year - used the SkyPier ferry terminal to travel between the Pearl River Delta and Chek Lap Kok. A further 163,000 people used cross-border coach and limousine services, up 41 percent.

On the cargo front, a 29 percent rise in exports helped boost total cargo growth, with exports to Europe and North America showing stronger pick-ups than other regions.
Aircraft Movements, Cross-boundary Land and Sea Traffic Set Record Monthly Highs
Press Release

HONG KONG, 19 September 2010 – Benefiting from robust demand during the traditional summer peak season, aircraft movements at Hong Kong International Airport in August reached a monthly high of 27,135, up 14.5% from a year ago and setting a new daily average record of 880.

During the month, passenger and cargo volumes continued their upswings, registering year-on-year growth of 9.2% and 17% respectively to 4.7 million and 346,000 tonnes.

For the passenger market, Hong Kong residents and visitors registered double-digit year-on-year growth in August, increasing 19% and 12% respectively. Passenger traffic to/ from the Chinese Mainland and South East Asia continued to perform particularly well among all major regions.

Stanley Hui Hon-chung, Chief Executive Officer of Airport Authority Hong Kong, said, "In August we saw not just robust air traffic, but also strong demand for cross-boundary land and sea transport at HKIA, which both set a record monthly high. The number of passengers using the SkyPier ferry terminal to travel between the Pearl River Delta (PRD) region and HKIA was 227,000, which is 33% more than the same period last year. Also, 163,000 passengers used cross-boundary coach and limousine services, which is a 41% increase over last August. These figures further affirm HKIA's status as a multi-modal transport hub and a preferred gateway to the Mainland with great connectivity to the PRD region."

Mr Hui added, "We anticipate the coming months to continue seeing growth as travel usually peaks at year-end, and in particular, during major festivals or holidays such as the Mid-Autumn Festival and the National Day Golden Week holidays."

Cargo growth in August was mainly driven by the strong performance of exports, which surged by 29% year on year. All major trading partners showed double-digit annual growth, with Europe and North America continuing to outperform other regions. During the month, imports also saw year-on-year growth of 12%.

For the first eight months of this year, HKIA has handled a cumulative total of 33.9 million passenger trips and 2.7 million tonnes of cargo, representing growth of 10.3% and 30.9%. Air traffic movements also grew by 7.3% to 198,775.

Spring Airlines gears up to challenge peers on key route
28 September 2010
Copyright 2010 China Daily Information Company. All Rights Reserved.

Spring Airlines, China's only low-cost carrier, starts Shanghai-Hong Kong services on Sept 28, challenging China Eastern Airlines Corp and Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd on flights between the nation's two financial hubs.

The carrier, whose executives share hotel rooms and eat instant noodles on business trips to cut costs, is offering round-trip tickets to Shanghai's Pudong Airport from Hong Kong for as little as $117.60, including fees, on its website. That's less than half the price charged by China Eastern and Cathay Pacific, the largest airlines in Shanghai and Hong Kong.

"A budget carrier like us aims to meet demand from ordinary, cost-conscious people," Chairman Wang Zhenghua said in an e-mailed response to questions last week. "There are so many in China that I see huge potential for our future."

Spring Air, which flies to more than 20 cities in China, is able to offer low fares as it fills more seats and makes more use of planes than larger rivals, Wang said.

"Spring Air may particularly affect China Eastern, whose fares are already relatively low," said Kelvin Lau, a Hong Kong-based Daiwa Institute of Research analyst. "Still, the limited availability of airport slots may cap the number of flights Spring Air can offer."

Wang, 66, started Shanghai-based Spring Air with three Airbus SAS A320s in 2005, as China first allowed private investors to enter the industry. The carrier has since expanded to 21 planes, Wang said. It has 11 A320s on order, according to data on Airbus' website.

The airline is an affiliate of Shanghai Spring International Travel Service Co, part of the travel and tourism group formed by Wang in 1981, which has sales of 6 billion yuan ($900 million) a year, according to Spring Air's website.

China Eastern charges from about HK$1,960 ($252) for a round-trip Hong Kong-Shanghai Pudong flight, according to its website. Cathay Pacific's Hong Kong Dragon Airlines Ltd unit is advertising fares from HK$2,620 on its website.

"The market is a fiercely aggressive place and we'll no doubt see more and more competition," Cathay Pacific Chief Executive Officer Tony Tyler said at a Sept 16 press conference. Cathay Pacific will offer "competitive fares" and invest in newer, fuel-efficient aircraft to pare costs, he said.

Li Qiang, head of media relations at China Eastern, declined to comment.

Spring Air is "actively" preparing for an initial public offering to raise funds for expansion and gain greater market share, Wang said. "It's one of our long-term goals," he said, without elaborating further on the timing for a share sale.

Wang holds 20 percent of Spring Air, while managers and senior staff share 75 percent. The remaining five percent is owned by the Shanghai district government.

The carrier, which operates charter flights to Ibaraki Airport, northeast of Tokyo, is planning to add more overseas services to cities within five hours of Shanghai, Wang said.

Low-cost carriers, led by Ryanair Holdings Plc and Southwest Airlines Co, pare costs by shunning services such as free food and in-flight entertainment and by using a single type of airplane to ease training and maintenance. They also strive to operate as many flights as possible per day to boost sales.

Passenger numbers at Chinese airports jumped 18 percent in the first eight months of the year as economic growth spurred travel. Airlines in the Asia-Pacific region will likely post a $5.2 billion profit this year, the highest for any region worldwide, the International Air Transport Association said on Sept 21. That was more than double an earlier forecast.

HK aims to sustain edge as aviation hub
Chek Lap Kok sees rising air travel traffic as demand from Pearl River Delta grows

4 October 2010
South China Morning Post

Hong Kong may have lost its competitive edge over the Pearl River Delta in terms of manufacturing and shipping, but it still holds its leading role as an international aviation hub.

Over the past several decades, the delta's lower costs have hollowed out Hong Kong's role as a manufacturing centre, and earlier this year Shenzhen overtook Hong Kong as the world's third-busiest container port.

In contrast, as a sign of Hong Kong's continuing competitiveness as an international air travel hub, millions of mainland travellers use Chek Lap Kok airport as a transit point to or from international destinations because airports in the Pearl River Delta do not have as many international flights. Nearly 10 million mainland passengers used Hong Kong airport in the 2009-2010 fiscal year, accounting for 21 per cent of the 46.9 million passengers that year, said a Hong Kong Airport Authority spokesman. "The multimodal transport services of Hong Kong International Airport are rising in popularity among Pearl River Delta travellers," the spokesman said. "Fuelled by the booming economy of the Pearl River Delta, we expect air traffic demand in the region will continue to grow. Hong Kong International Airport's traffic will also rise."

Guangzhou and Shenzhen airports offer more mainland connections, but Hong Kong beats them in international connections. Hong Kong has air links to 110 international and 40 mainland destinations, according to the Hong Kong Airport Authority. In comparison, Shenzhen International Airport offers flights to more than 90 mainland cities and, according to the airport's website, has traffic rights with 37 countries. About 30 international destinations are actually served, although about half of those are for freight services only. As of the end of last year, Guangzhou Baiyun Airport offered 143 mainland and 54 international flight routes, according to the airport's 2009 annual report.

The Hong Kong Airport Authority was seeking to increase land and sea links between the Pearl River Delta and Hong Kong airport, said Alaina Shum, general manager of the authority. "We offer land and sea intermodal transport to the Pearl River Delta."

In July, the authority revamped its system of limousines and coaches connecting Hong Kong airport with the Pearl River Delta, increasing the frequency of services, Shum said at a recent South China transport infrastructure conference in Shenzhen.

Last year, 1.3 million passengers travelled between the delta and Hong Kong airport in limousines and coaches; the number was 900,000 in the first seven months of this year and was predicted to rise to 1.5 million for the whole of this year, Shum said.

Hong Kong airport offered 460 daily coach trips connecting 115 destinations in the Pearl River Delta, as well as 260 limousines offering cross-border transport services, said the authority's spokesman.

The authority was looking to increase the number of ferry trips from the SkyPier marine terminal at Chek Lap Kok airport, which opened in January, Shum said.

SkyPier offers 107 ferry rides per day to eight ports in the Pearl River Delta. The daily average passenger number on these ferries was between 6,000 and 7,000, but on peak days the daily passenger number reached 10,000, she said. Last month, SkyPier achieved a monthly high of 227,000 passengers, up 33 per cent from a year ago, while Hong Kong airport's cross-border coaches and limousines served 163,000 passengers, a yearly increase of 41 per cent and also a new record, said the authority spokesperson.

Within a 140-kilometre radius, there are five major airports in the Pearl River Delta - Hong Kong, Macau, Zhuhai, Shenzhen and Guangzhou - which were under the separate sovereign jurisdictions of the British, Portuguese and Chinese governments when they were built, said Colman Ng, assistant director-general of the Hong Kong Civil Aviation Department.

"We did fight, but we did have discussions as to who controls what and takes which piece of airspace. Fortunately, we are now under the same country, China. That's why we managed to have discussions," Ng said at the Shenzhen conference.

Since last year, Hong Kong airport and other airports in the Pearl River Delta had set up a working group to meet regularly to improve co-ordination of airspace over the delta and improve flight procedures.

"We have been doing very well in the past. How are we going to sustain our competitive edge? This is where we will work hard, to increase traffic capacity. We have a plan to increase runway and airspace capacity to improve our competitiveness as a major international aviation hub," he said.

If Hong Kong airport decided to build a third runway, its air traffic could rise to 102 aircraft movements per hour in 2020 from 59 at present, Ng said. A third runway would take 10 years to build at a cost of tens of billions of dollars, he added.

HK Sept air cargo throughput rises 14 pct yr/yr

HONG KONG, Oct 5 (Reuters) - Air cargo throughput via Hong Kong in September rose 14 percent from a year earlier, data from Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Ltd (Hactl) showed.

Cargo exports from the city in September increased 16.8 percent from a year earlier, while imports were up 4.9 percent.

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

Air cargo volumes through Hong Kong in Septembr totalled 242,043 tonnes.

"With the earlier restocking of the inventory cycle almost completed and the higher base effect in the second half of 2009, we observed signs of milder growth in the third quarter," Lilian Chan, Hactl's general manager of marketing and customer service, said in a statement. "Nevertheless, demand for airfreight remains strong and we are still optimistic about the overall outlook in 2010."

A breakdown of air cargo handled by Hactl in September and the first nine months of 2010 :
