Is that ACI or from another ranking? I thought ACI didn't have an overall ranking.

No, ACI ASQ Award does have an overall worldwide ranking. Here is the link:

So it will be quite a competition for the ranking in 2010.

Turkish Cargo, part of Turkish Airlines, began twice-weekly freighter flights between Hong Kong and Istanbul on October 15.

The additional aircraft will strengthen the organization's services to China and support demand for capacity between Asia and Europe.

Huseyin Ceyhan, director of Turkish Airlines in Hong Kong noted: “Hong Kong, being the second-largest cargo hub in the world, is a very important market for us. The expansion of Turkish Cargo will further enhance our local presence and our penetration into the Asia-Pacific market.”

From Istanbul, the airline said it can reach destinations in nearly 50 countries within 2-3 hours including Tbilisi, Damascus and Maastricht.

“Despite the recent global economic downturn, we continue to observe steady demand from Hong Kong, which posted an 8.3 percent growth in local exports over the first two quarters of this year,” said Abdullah Soner Akkurt, senior vice president of Turkish Cargo. “Thus expansion into greater China is a strategic move for us,” he added.

The airline subsidiary reported a 60 percent increase in revenue and a 42 percent growth in tonnage during the first eight months of 2010. In addition to the new freighters, Turkish Cargo said it is expanding cargo terminals and improving infrastructure to support further growth.

Hong Kong International Airport handled 4.1 million passengers and 346,000 tonnes of cargo in September.


Hong Kong International Airport handled 4.1 million passengers and 346,000 tonnes of cargo in September, up 16.9% and 13.9% compared with same period last year, the Airport Authority says.

Aircraft movements grew 15.9% to 26,140.

The cargo volume rise was due to robust exports, which surged 18% year-on-year. Major consumption markets in North America and Europe saw double-digit year-on-year growth.

Traffic by Hong Kong residents and visitors rose 19% and 17% compared to last year. All key regions saw year-on-year growth, with the Mainland and Southeast Asia performing best.

Transfer and transit passengers grew 15% year-on-year while imports rose 9% and transshipments increased 10%.

Airport Authority Chief Executive Officer Stanley Hui said air traffic will continue rising.

"If everything goes well we are confident that HKIA will achieve record volumes in both passenger and cargo throughput this year, strengthening HKIA's position as a leading international and regional aviation centre," he said.

From July to September the airport handled 13.5 million passengers, a 14.3% year-on-year increase, indicating vigorous growth in the passenger market. Flight movements grew 15% while the increase in cargo tonnage narrowed to 18.4%.

It seems that aviation sector is really recovering well as record growth is taking place everywhere, not just HKIA.

Don't think it's really recovering in Europe and North America though.

LCQ18: Air pollutant emissions from aircraft
Wednesday, October 20, 2010
Government Press Release

Following is a question by the Hon Albert Chan Wai-yip and a written reply by the Secretary for the Environment, Mr Edward Yau, at the Legislative Council meeting today (October 20):

Question:

At the meeting of this Council on October 20, 2004, I enquired if there were measures to reduce emissions from aircraft so as to alleviate the problem of air pollution in Tung Chung, but the authorities said that they could not confirm that there was a direct relation between air pollution in Tung Chung and emissions from aircraft. Yet, some Tung Chung residents have relayed to me that with the growing number of flights operating at the Hong Kong International Airport in recent years, emissions from aircraft have increased correspondingly, affecting the health of residents in the district. In this connection, will the Government inform this Council :

(a) whether it knows the various levels of emissions from aircraft movements and aircraft parking at the Hong Kong International Airport in each of the past three years, and list in table format a breakdown by the model of aircraft, as well as which models had the highest level of emissions, and what measures the authorities have at present to reduce emissions from aircraft of such models; and

(b) whether it will take new measures to reduce the impact of emissions from aircraft on the health of Tung Chung residents; if it will, of the details; if not, the reasons for that?

Reply:

President,

(a) Air quality in Tung Chung is affected by various factors, one of which is air pollutant emissions from aircraft. Based on the aircraft arrival and departure data of the Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) provided by the Civil Aviation Department (CAD), the Environmental Protection Department (EPD) estimates the annual emissions of civil aviation. At present, we have estimated the emissions up to 2008. Please refer to table 1 in the annex for the aircraft arrival and departure data of the HKIA and the annual quantities of air pollutants emitted from aircraft from 2006 to 2008.

In 2008, aircraft emissions accounted for about 1%, 6%, 1%, 1% and 3% of the total emissions of sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, respirable suspended particulates, volatile organic compounds and carbon monoxide in Hong Kong respectively.

The total quantities of air pollutants emitted from individual models of aircraft depend on a number of factors including the numbers of arrival and departure of such aircraft in a year, the type, size and number of engines used in the aircraft. Even for aircraft of the same model, they may not have the same types and sizes of engines and therefore their levels of emissions could vary. In general, bigger aircraft with higher arrival and departure frequencies will have higher level of emissions. Please refer to table 2 in the annex for the percentage shares of emissions for different types of aircraft from 2006 to 2008 based on CAD's aircraft arrival and departure data of the HKIA.

Whilst the actual air pollutants emissions from each commercial aircraft type may vary (depending on the aircraft size and passenger load), aircraft engines are required to follow the standards set out at Annex 16 to the Convention on International Civil Aviation (the Chicago Convention), Volume 2, Part III, Chapter 2 (Turbojet and turbofan engines intended for propulsion only at subsonic speeds). This document specifies the standards for four types of emissions that an aircraft engine has to meet: smoke, unburned hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides.

The Chicago Convention and its annexes apply to Hong Kong. CAD has been adopting their standards when certifying engines on commercial aircraft registered in Hong Kong. It also allows commercial aircraft registered elsewhere to use the HKIA provided that they meet the standards at Annex 16 to the Chicago Convention. All the engines installed on commercial aircraft have met the relevant standards.

(b) Whilst continuing to implement international standards in certifying aircraft engines, CAD has also implemented new air routes with effect from October 22, 2009, which have shorter travelling distances for arrival aircraft from the west and the north of Hong Kong. Each flight coming to Hong Kong from the Mainland, South East Asia and Europe has been able to save up to about 210 kilometres in flight journey or 14 minutes in flight time. The shortened air routes can reduce air pollutants emissions from aircraft.

At the airport, the Airport Authority (AA) provides electricity powered fixed ground power (FGP) and pre-conditioned air (PCA) systems for aircraft at the parking stands to reduce the need for aircraft to use their onboard fuel combustion auxiliary power generation units. About 70% of passenger flights now adopt the FGP and PCA systems. In early 2011, AA will start a renewal and upgrade programme to improve the efficiency of these systems. Upon completion in 2013, more than 95% of passenger flights will use the FGP and PCA systems.

That's good. Just wonder how did they actually shorten the approach? Was there anything to do with the re-organization of air space??

I haven't heard of air space usage reorganization with mainland authorities.

Up to 8pc rise in flight surcharges
Friday, October 22, 2010
The Standard

Cathay Pacific Airways and two other airlines will raise their passenger fuel surcharges by 3 to 8 percent next month.

The Civil Aviation Department yesterday gave approval for the new surcharges. This comes only two months after surcharges were last raised.

The other two carriers are Singapore Airlines and All Nippon Airways.

The new maximum levels of fuel surcharges will be HK$108 for short-haul flights, up from the current HK$100.

The surcharge for long-haul flights will be HK$521, rising from HK$506, for tickets issued between November 1 and 30.

"Passenger fuel surcharges seek to allow airlines to partially recover the increase in operational costs due to fluctuations in aviation fuel prices," the department said.

The CAD, as the aeronautical authority in Hong Kong, "considers and approves fuel surcharge applications from the airlines in accordance with bilateral Air Services Agreements."

National carrier to offer more flights to central Vietnam
25 October 2010
The Saigon Times Daily

HCMC - Vietnam Airlines will operate more international and domestic flights to and from central Vietnam in the winter schedule and beyond in response to increasing demand for air travel to economic and tourist hubs in the region.

The airline will add four flights to its HCMC-Quy Nhon schedule on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays in addition to its daily service to the central coastal city.

Currently, Vietnam Airlines uses Airbus A320 for its services from HCMC and Hanoi to Quy Nhon in Binh Dinh Province. However, Vietnam News Agency quoted the airline’s representative in the city as saying that the carrier had been asked to operate the bigger aircraft Airbus A321 to match a pickup in air travel to the province toward the end of this year and early next year when the country celebrates the biggest Lunar New Year holiday, or Tet.

Vietnam Airlines announced it would carry out 46 charter flights between Hong Kong and Danang from next month to May 2011 under an agreement it signed with a partner there. The Airbus A321 configured with 184 seats will fly the route on Tuesdays and Fridays in the period.

The airline said more travelers in Hong Kong and visitors to this territory wanted to explore attractions in Danang as well as UNESCO-listed Heritage Sites of Hue, Hoi An and My Son Complex of Towers.

Vietnam Airlines has daily flights from HCMC and Hanoi to Hong Kong, which is considered as an international commercial hub in Asia.

At present, Vietnam Airlines is working with the authorities of Danang over a plan to open a direct service between this economic hub in central Vietnam and Japan later this year.

Besides Hong Kong, Vietnam Airlines is also rolling up its sleeves for chartered flights from Korea, Taiwan and other parts of China to the central coastal city of Danang, and vice versa from next month till January 2011.

As for the domestic segment, Vietnam Airlines plans its flights connecting Danang and the northern city of Haiphong and the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho to bring more tourists to the central city and places of interest in neighboring provinces.

Mainland blamed as air delays rise
The Standard
Thursday, October 28, 2010

Five percent of flights to the mainland from Hong Kong were delayed for an average of 41 minutes this year partly due to poor air traffic control on the other side of the border, Secretary for Transport and Housing Eva Cheng Yu-wah said.

The more serious delays were for flights to Beijing and Shanghai.

Cheng, citing the Civil Aviation Department, said major causes of delays include the weather, route or airspace limitations, and air traffic that exceeded the management handling capacity of the mainland's air traffic control.

Cheng was responding to a written question from Liberal Party legislator Miriam Lau Kin-yee, who asked why there had been "increasing delays" in flights to the mainland.

Lau said she received complaints that flights are often not cleared for takeoff even though the aircraft are sitting on the runway, causing needless delays and inconvenience for passengers.

Cheng said 3,401 flights to the mainland from Hong Kong were delayed between July 2009 and June this year.

A total of 1,655 flights were delayed in the first six months this year, representing just under 5 percent of 33,741 departures.

The average delay was for 41.2 minutes, up 15.4 percent over the whole of last year.

Mainland authorities will impose air traffic flow control measures to ensure aviation safety.

"Given that the circumstances of flight delays vary, such as the different routes involved and the number of flights and passengers affected, it is difficult to quantify in simple terms the impact of flight delays on the aviation industry," Cheng said.

She said the Civil Aviation Administration of China has taken steps to alleviate delays to Beijing and Shanghai and other parts of the mainland.

Air traffic operations in central China are undergoing a review, while a new radar control sector was established in Zhengzhou last month.
