November Traffic Continues to Show Increases Across the Board

Boosted by continually strong demand, passenger and cargo throughput in November at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) registered year-on-year increases of 8.1% and 7.1%, growing to 4.1 million and 368,000 tonnes respectively. Air traffic movements also rose by 13.9% to 26,765.

The growth in passenger traffic last month was mainly driven by visitors and Hong Kong residents, which showed year-on-year growth of 10% and 9% respectively. Passenger volume in all key regions recorded positive growth from a year ago, with South East Asia performing particularly well. Transfer/ transit passengers increased by 6% over the same month last year.

On the cargo front, the continuous growth in total cargo throughput was fueled by year-on-year growth of 10%, 7% and 5% in transshipments, exports and imports. Among all the markets, North America and Europe continued their strong momentum with double-digit growth.

Stanley Hui Hon-chung, Chief Executive Officer of Airport Authority Hong Kong, said, "With market demand continuing to be strong, we are anticipating a busy holiday season for the coming Christmas and new year. An average of more than 150,000 passengers will travel through HKIA every day, and on peak days we expect to serve a record level of close to 170,000 passengers. As usual, in preparation for the busy travel season, we are working closely with our business partners at HKIA to ensure that airport operations remain smooth and efficient, including the deployment of additional staff to maintain high-quality passenger service."

The airport has already kick-started a variety of roving and stage activities to celebrate the festive season with passengers. These include music ensembles, Christmas carol singing, dance performances and magic shows in terminals 1 and 2.

For the first 11 months of 2010, HKIA has handled a cumulative total of 46.5 million passengers and 3.8 million tonnes of cargo, increasing 10.7% and 24.8% from a year ago. Air traffic movements have also gone up 9.3% to 278,820.

Talks start on new civil aviation pact with Taiwan
19 December 2010
SCMP

The governments of Hong Kong and Taiwan have begun talks on a new civil aviation agreement, long stalled by political complexities since the city's return to Chinese sovereignty.

The existing agreement, which regulates the routes and the number of flights operated by each authorised airline between Taiwan and Hong Kong airports, was first signed in 1996 when the city was a British colony, and has been extended eight times since.

Because the Hong Kong government shunned contact with its counterpart in Taipei in past years, the present arrangements were signed between Cathay Pacific Airways and the Taipei Airlines Association.

Taipei has made abortive attempts to strike an official deal. Talks on the matter were renewed this year after ties improved and a quasi-official communication platform was established.

Several meetings have been held between officials from the two transport ministries to discuss the future aviation arrangements.

"Our Ministry of Transportation and Communications has met with Hong Kong's Transport and Housing Bureau several times. I hope consensus can be reached as soon as possible," James Chu Shi, director general of the department of Hong Kong and Macau Affairs under Taiwan's Mainland Affairs Council, told the Sunday Morning Post.

"It is very abnormal for private airlines to sign civil aviation agreements. But we understand the political reality."

Without specifying how a new deal might come about, Chu said Lin Chen-kuo, chairman of the Taiwan-Hong Kong Economic and Cultural Co-operation Council (ECCC), would play a key role.

The council was launched in May as a counterpart to the local Hong Kong-Taiwan Economic and Cultural Co-operation and Promotion Council, and together they serve as semi-official platforms for talks on various areas of co-operation.

A bureau spokeswoman said discussions about air services between the two places were ongoing.

Lin, who was leading an ECCC delegation on a three-day visit to Hong Kong that ends today, said the city's government had given more positive responses in talks on other areas compared with the past.

"The attitude of the Hong Kong government has clearly improved," Lin said.

The two sides discussed Hong Kong's proposal to set up a multi-function office in Taipei and Taiwan's proposal to rename its present representative office, the Chung Hwa Travel Service, to properly reflect its role, he said.

"Over the years, business between the two places was done totally by the private sector. The Hong Kong and Taiwan governments did not take much part. But when exchanges reach a certain level, governmental participation is necessary," Lin said.

"We hope this platform will facilitate more exchanges."

Aviation Passenger Fuel Surcharges adjusted
Monday, December 20, 2010
Government Press Release

The Civil Aviation Department (CAD) today (December 20) gave approval for passenger fuel surcharges levied by three airlines to be increased for the period from January 1 to 31, 2011.

The new maximum levels of fuel surcharges will be $129 for short-haul flights and $621 for long-haul flights, which represent an increase of 8% and 10% 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, CAD considers and approves fuel surcharge applications from the airlines in accordance with bilateral Air Services Agreements.

Passenger fuel surcharges are reviewed regularly by CAD. The last review was done at the end of November when the maximum surcharge levels approved by CAD were $120 for short-haul flights and $566 for long-haul flights.

Spring Airlines To Launch Shijiazhuang-Hong Kong Flight
12 December 2010
China Hospitality News

Spring Airlines, the Chinese low-cost airline, has said that it will start operating round-trip flights from Hong Kong to Shijiazhuang, the capital of Hebei Province, on December 23, 2010.

The new service will be operated every Monday, Thursday, and Sunday using 180-seat Airbus A320 aircraft. Flight 9C8571 will leave Shijiazhuang Zhengding International Airport at 09:55 and arrive at Hong Kong International Airport at 12:50. Flight 9C8572 flight will leave Hong Kong at 13:50 and arrive in Shijiazhuang at 16:50.

The ticket price for the new service is expected to be relatively low. The carrier also plans to operate a bus link between Shijiazhuang Airport and downtown Beijing, in a bid to attract more passengers from in and around Beijing.

In July 2009, Spring Airlines chose Shijiazhuang Zhengding International Airport as one of its hubs. The carrier has launched flights from Shijiangzhuang to Shanghai, Shenyang, Hohhot, and Chengdu.

Charter flight for the stranded

The Hong Kong government may charter a flight to help stranded Hong Kong people when London's Heathrow Airport resumes operations.

The Immigration Department has received 39 requests for assistance and 152 enquiries, many from students returning home for Christmas holiday, said Under Secretary for Security Lai Tung-kwok at a briefing Monday afternoon.

Meanwhile, staff at a Hong Kong's representative office in London have already helped some special cases, including a cash-strapped young student and a resident in need of medicine.

Travel Industry Council executive director Joseph Tung Yao-chung said about 500 tourists from more than 10 groups were also stranded in London. Airlines have made arrangements for most to stay in hotels.

Well, once the snow is cleared then all those frequencies should be able to clear the backlog within days. By the time the charter jet gets there there may not be much people left to fill it?

Family affair - three generations, one firm
20 December 2010
SCMP

When two young recruits started work in aircraft engineering 37 and 43 years ago, Mak Fuk-yee set about training them as he would any other new staff.

But there was one big difference: these were his sons.

And to make it even more of a family affair, one of his grandsons has since joined the Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering Company - the third generation to work there.

Now 87 and barely able to talk, Mak smiles as he listens to his sons chat about their careers with the company that he joined 60 years ago.

"There was no advantage at work being his son at all," Mak Shu-sing said. "He is a very serious person, and you have to be serious in working with planes."

Despite their common occupation, the family members do not talk much about aircraft after work.

"We have a lot of common interests," Andy Mak Shu-kay said. "We all like football and mahjong."

Andy Mak, 58, is head of the sheet-metal section, and Mak Shu-sing, 57, an engineer, works under him. "We have conflicts at work from time to time," Andy Mak said. "But that's normal."

Andy's son, Marco Mak Chun-ho, 28, who joined the company in 2003, works separately in the line-maintenance department.

The oldest Mak joined the company when it was first formed by the Swire group in 1950, and was followed by his sons in 1967 and 1973.

He had been working for another Swire company in ship construction and maintenance and switched to aircraft because it paid better.

He worked in the sheet-metal department for 27 years before retirement, mainly on aircraft structures at the old airport at Kai Tak.

"We lived in Kowloon City so Dad could go to work more easily," Mak Shu-sing said. "We saw aeroplanes above us every day and developed some affection for them."

The most dramatic incident the brothers remember was when a passenger jet was damaged while landing about 30 years ago. "The aircraft was heavily damaged," Mak Shu-sing said. "It was a Sunday and we were called to work immediately."

The youngest Mak in the business, Marco, said he developed an interest in the industry as a child. "I was taken to the company's Christmas gatherings when I was small and gradually developed an interest in the industry," he said.

Preliminary report released on Finnair attempted take-off from taxiway incident
Thursday, December 23, 2010
Government Press Release

An investigation is in progress to determine the circumstances and causes of the serious incident involving an Airbus A340-300 aircraft operated by Finnair with registration mark OH-LQD, at Hong Kong International Airport on November 27, 2010.

At 0124 hours (Hong Kong time) on November 27, Finnair flight FIN070, bound for Helsinki, Finland attempted to take-off after making a wrong turn onto a taxiway. On detecting the anomaly, an air traffic controller instructed the pilot to stop rolling and the attempted take-off was aborted in time. There was no other traffic on the taxiway and there was no injury to persons or damage to the aircraft.

The Accident Investigation Division of the Civil Aviation Department (CAD) has initiated an investigation to determine the causes of the incident. The investigation team comprises qualified inspectors of accidents with professional experience in different aviation disciplines, including air traffic controllers, pilots and aerodrome experts. The Air Accident Investigation Board of Finland and the Bureau d'Enquêtes et d'Analyses pour la Sécurité de l'Aviation Civile of France, representing respectively the state of registry and state of manufacture of the aircraft involved, have appointed accredited representatives to take part in the investigation.

The investigation team today (December 23) released a preliminary report on the incident.

A spokesman for the CAD said that the preliminary report contains facts relating to the incident as determined up to the time of issue and must be regarded as tentative.

"The investigation team will continue to collect and study all relevant information in order to determine the circumstances and causes of the incident. More in-depth investigation and analysis work has to be done before any conclusions can be drawn," the spokesman said.

"This preliminary report is published at this stage for general information," he added.

The full preliminary report is attached in the annex. It is also available for download at the CAD webpage (www.cad.gov.hk/english/reports.html).

Finnair close shave sparks fresh look at takeoff safety
The Standard
Friday, December 24, 2010

The Civil Aviation Department has refreshed aircraft takeoff safety procedures after an outbound Finnair Airbus wrongly turned into a taxiway last month.

Although there was no disaster - with the pilot stopped 1,400 meters into the run by air traffic controllers - an investigation has been launched into the cause of the error.

The incident - shortly before 2am on November 27 - was described by the department as "serious."

Officials from Finland and France, where Airbus is manufactured, were invited to take part in the probe.

No conclusions have been reached so far and the investigations are continuing, the department said yesterday.

The A340-300 aircraft could have accelerated and crashed had it not been stopped by air traffic control in time, a preliminary probe showed.

At 1.24am, the Helsinki-bound flight FIN070 with 272 people on board including 258 passengers was cleared for take off from Runway 07L.

The aircraft correctly took a right turn at the end of the taxiway but then suddenly took a premature turn onto another taxiway parallel to the runway, with signs that it was about to take off.

Air traffic control immediately asked the pilot to stop moving.

Aside from a delay, no other incident was caused, partly because no other traffic was on the taxiway.

No one on board was injured, the preliminary probe said.

The initial investigation found weather did not cause the error as visibility was 10 kilometers at the time. Lighting on the runway and the taxiway was also operating normally.

The investigation team inspected surveillance and communication data between air traffic control and the aircraft, and found no anomaly.

While no one has yet been held responsible, the department said the investigations will continue.

At the same time, takeoff procedures have been made more stringent to avoid a recurrence of the incident.

Cause of jet's bungled takeoff still a mystery
24 December 2010
South China Morning Post

It's still not clear why a Finnair flight almost took off from a taxiway instead of a runway at the city's airport.

An inquiry found that the plane, carrying 272 people, had no problems with light signals or radio communication and the weather was fine.

The incident took place just before 1.30am on November 27, when the Helsinki-bound Airbus A340-300 made a wrong turn onto a taxiway.

Its crew was preparing to take off and the plane accelerating down the taxiway until an air traffic controller ordered a stop. It came to a halt 1.4 kilometres down the taxiway.

The Civil Aviation Department launched an investigation and yesterday released a three-page preliminary report.

But it warned the findings "must be regarded as tentative" and were meant only for general information.

"The investigation team will continue to collect and study all relevant information in order to determine the circumstances and causes of the incident," a spokesman said. "More in-depth investigation and analysis work has to be done before any conclusions can be drawn." Under the United Nation's Convention on International Civil Aviation, the incident was deemed "serious" because it involved "circumstances indicating that an accident nearly occurred".

The preliminary report found the Finnair flight was cleared to take off from one of the airport's runways. Its crew took the correct route towards the runway but turned prematurely into the taxiway, which runs parallel to the runway.

Airport staff checked the runway and taxiway lights, including the "stop bar" lights, and found that they were all in working order.

An airport authority spokeswoman said the inquiry was to determine the causes of the incident and not who or what was to blame. But human error is not being ruled out.

Two days after the incident, the authority introduced an extra safeguard to prevent a recurrence.

It stipulates that crews of all planes taking off from the runway in question must prove to air traffic control that their craft passed the taxiway where the incident occurred.

The investigation is scheduled to conclude in the next six months.
