Hainan Airlines' Hongkong Jet to receive air operator's certificate in July

By Ghim-Lay Yeo

24/03/11

Hainan Airlines' new Hong Kong-based private jet charter and management arm Hong Kong Jet aims to receive its air operator's certificate in July, as it seeks to capture a slice of the growing business aviation market in Asia.

It is set to receive its first aircraft - a Gulfstream G550 - in May, chief operating officer Jackie Wu says, adding that the company has already identified its first customer for the long-range, large-cabin aircraft.

"We hope to have a fleet of two to four aircraft this year, all of them will be brand-new Gulfstream aircraft," she adds.

Hong Kong Jet aims to have 12 aircraft by the end of 2012, Wu says. Some of these will be managed aircraft.

The company wants to begin operations with long-range aircraft to meet demand in the region. "In Asia, people want long-range aircraft so we are looking at aircraft like the G550," Wu says. Its first three aircraft, and probably its fourth, will be G550s.

In March, Hong Kong Jet's parent Hainan Airlines signed memoranda of understanding with Gulfstream at Asian Aerospace in Hong Kong for five G450s and G550s, and with Dassault Falcon for five 7X business jets.

The aircraft will go to Hong Kong Jet and Deer Jet, the group's China-based business aviation unit that operates China-registered jets.
Wu expects Hong Kong Jet to work with Deer Jet, but maintains it will retain independence.

SEAIR to start flying to Hong Kong

abs-cbnNEWS.com
Posted at 02/25/2011 10:19 AM | Updated as of 02/25/2011 4:17 PM

MANILA, Philippines - South East Asian Airlines (SEAIR) announced that it will fly to Hong Kong from its hub in Clark, Pampanga daily starting March 14, 2011.

The local carrier is offering one-way tickets for the new route at P1,500 each, which are available for online booking until March 2 and are good for travel from March 14 to May 31, 2011.

"With our new Hong Kong services and additional routes to be announced later, we are excited to contribute even more to our country's employment, tourism industry and national economy," Avelino Zapanta, president and chief executive officer of SEAIR, said in a statement.

Seats are also marketed through Tiger Airways' Internet booking system. The local carrier has cemented a partnership with the Singaporean budget airline last year, allowing the latter to offer SEAIR flights to passengers.

SEAIR began mounting flights to Singapore in December last year using 2 Airbus A319 aircraft leased from Tiger Airways.

The airline is planning flights to Davao and Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam via its Clark hub in 2012.

Five Airports in the Greater Pearl River Delta Sign MOU
Airports to Expand to Meet Demand for Future Growth

AA Press Release

HONG KONG, 25 March 2011 – Senior management of the five major airports in the Greater Pearl River Delta (GPRD) region, including Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Macau, Shenzhen and Zhuhai*, took part in the annual chairmen's meeting held in Hong Kong today. Management of the five airports agreed to strengthen co-operation and promote sustainable development of the airports in the region. A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed at the meeting.

Hosted by the Hong Kong International Airport, the meeting focused on ways to foster closer co-operation and communications. Officials from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) and the Transport and Housing Bureau of the HKSAR also joined the meeting.

Eva Cheng, Secretary for Transport and Housing of the HKSAR, briefed the members on Hong Kong's cross-boundary transport developments and integration with the Pearl River Delta (PRD). She said, "Hong Kong's integration with the PRD is not only a natural development but also beneficial to the economic developments of the two places. Co-operation between Guangdong and Hong Kong is one of the important topics, be it in the Framework Agreement on Hong Kong/Guangdong Co-operation signed last year or the recently announced 12th National Five-Year Plan. In the integration of Hong Kong and the PRD, development of cross-boundary transport infrastructure is a necessary prerequisite, and the HKSAR Government is actively pursuing strategic cross-boundary transport infrastructure projects."

Xia Xinghua, Vice Minister of CAAC, said, "Each of the five airports has its own market share and positioning. All of the five airports have ample room for further development as we transform PRD into a more competitive, world-class city cluster. We hope that the airports can continue to work together to seize the opportunities ahead, deepen their co-operation and leverage on each other's strengths to build a strategic co-operation platform. This will help boost the aviation economy of the country, driving the prosperity of the international and domestic aviation market and increasing the pace of change for PRD's industry structure and economic development to make great contributions to the region."

Dr Marvin Cheung Kin-tung, Chairman of the Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA), said the meeting enhanced communications among the airports in the region. "With the PRD economy growing even stronger, demand for air passenger and cargo traffic continues to surge. In the long term, even if the five airports deliver on all of their planned expansions, we still will not be able to meet the rising demand for aviation services. It will be in the best interests of the five airports to foster closer co-operation and complement each other to boost economic development in the region while stepping up their efforts to meet the demand for future growth."

Attending representatives also shared their views on a range of topics related to airport development in the region including airport development and planning, the opening of low-altitude airspace in the PRD region, the development of multi-modal transportation and exploration of the air traffic market.

The five airports in the GPRD signed the MOU to implement the Framework Agreement for Hong Kong/Guangdong and Macao/Guangdong Co-operation. The signing ceremony was witnessed by Xia Xinghua, Vice Minister of CAAC; Eva Cheng, Secretary for Transport and Housing, HKSAR; Su Langen, Director General, CAAC Office of Air Traffic Management Industry; Jiang Huaiyu, Director of CAAC Central and Southern Regional Administration; Pu Zhaozhou, Director, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office, CAAC; and Dr Marvin Cheung, Chairman of the AA.

The MOU was jointly signed by Liu Zijing, President of Guangdong Airport Management Corporation; Stanley Hui Hon-chung, Chief Executive Officer of the AA; Liu Suning, Executive Director of Macau International Airport Company Limited; Wang Yang, Board Chairman of Shenzhen Airport Management Company Limited; and Li Guoming, Board Chairman of Zhuhai Airport Management Company Limited*.

The MOU endorsed the topics discussed in the meeting, most notably the pledge to implement the "Outline of the Plan for the Reform and Development of the PRD Region" and the strengthening of co-operation among the five airports. The airports also agreed to speed up the construction of each airport's infrastructure so as to enhance each other's advantages. All members should respect the unique development needs of each airport amid close co-operation, achieve sustainable development, and meet the air traffic demand of the PRD market. Furthermore, the five airports pledged to enhance communications and co-operation by exchanging air traffic flow information regularly and discussing topics of mutual interest.

The chairmen's meeting of the five major airports in the GPRD region is held every year, chaired and organised by member airports in turn. The meeting was held in Macau last year. It will be chaired by Shenzhen International Airport next year.

Yes - the old UA livery, the new one, and now a combined one with Continental. I think it's still possible to spot all 3.

Congested skies a barrier to growth - and flight safety
26 March 2011
SCMP

The highly congested airspace of the Pearl River Delta will not only stifle industry growth, but may also compromise flight safety as air traffic in the region surges an estimated 70 per cent over the next decade.

Mainland civil aviation officials said yesterday that solutions to the problem do not lie only with the opening up of mainland airspace, but also a thorough planning of segmented airspaces over the delta and integration of air traffic control systems among the area's five airports.

The Pearl River Delta topped the list as the mainland's busiest and most complicated airspace - even more so than the northern aviation cluster in Beijing and Shanghai. That's because five airports are scattered within a 150-kilometre radius - Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Zhuhai, Shenzhen and Macau.

According to the Civil Aviation Administration of China, hourly aircraft movements from Guangzhou's Baiyun International Airport and Shenzhen Baoan Airport already exceeded the maximum handling capacity of the region's airspace by seven and 10 flights respectively during peak-time traffic last year.

"The capacity of the airports is suppressed, the flight punctuality rate constantly fell below average and officers are under immense pressure to maintain flight safety," Jiang Huaiyu, director of CAAC's Central and Southern Regional Administration told leaders and officials from the five cities at a conference yesterday. "These problems create a bottleneck in the future development."

China Eastern Airlines, the mainland's second-largest carrier, said more than 60 million air passengers had delays last year - amounting to about a quarter of all mainland civil aviation flights and causing more than one billion yuan (HK$1.19 billion) of direct economic losses.

Only about 10 per cent of airspace is open for civil aviation flights on the mainland. The rest is restricted for military use.

A number of measures have been taken to open up the skies - including a recent plan to release airspace under 5,000 metres for private aircraft - but progress has been slow and is unlikely to catch up with the industry's development plan for the next five years. Aircraft movements in the Pearl River Delta alone are expected to surge from 1.01 million last year to 1.8 million in 2020.

The chairmen of the five airports yesterday signed a memorandum at a regional conference, pledging closer co-operation. They also discussed with authorities topics including a revamp of airspace boundaries and integration of air traffic control.

"Consolidation of the measurement systems is of utmost priority," said Su Langen, CAAC's director general of Air Traffic Management Industry. "The workload of air traffic controllers is increased when they have to convert important flight data - including flight speed, height and distance - while processing a large number of aircraft movements within a limited airspace."

University of Hong Kong aviation analyst James Wang said the main obstacle would be in deciding which airports should switch systems.

Guangzhou and its nearby airports agreed in 2009 to form a cluster for domestic and overseas routes focusing on East Asia. Hong Kong agreed to lead Shenzhen, Zhuhai and Macau in a cluster for long-haul international flights.

UPS Launches Next-Day Service from Hong Kong to Europe

New Direct Flights Cover More of Europe, Guaranteed, For Both Small Packages and Heavy Freight

SINGAPORE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--UPS (NYSE: UPS) today announced the launch of direct flights from Hong Kong to Europe, enabling the company to offer the widest next-day delivery coverage for both packages and heavy freight to Europe from Hong Kong.

“Hong Kong is a strategically important market for UPS with its proximity to mainland China and its well-established trade connections with the rest of the world”

With the addition of four direct flights, UPS now offers a total of 11 flights from Hong Kong to Europe each week. This gives companies in the region easier access and more options to conduct business with Europe. Indeed, with these flights, UPS reaches more of Europe next day, guaranteed, than any logistics carrier.

The new daily direct flights will link Hong Kong with Cologne, Germany, Monday to Thursday using modern B747-400 aircraft. They will operate in addition to the seven flights that UPS already offers each week between Hong Kong and Cologne via Dubai. Beyond offering an accelerated option for shipping packages, the new direct flights also will change the landscape for air freight shipments. UPS now delivers to more European destinations from Hong Kong with next day, guaranteed express freight service than anyone.

The new service offers wide coverage across Europe reaching 34 countries with non-dutiable small package and letters service, and 18 countries with dutiable small package service. With the UPS express freight service, shipments can be delivered in one day to 18 countries and 39 cities across Europe, including Paris, Milan, Prague, Frankfurt, Madrid, Barcelona and Copenhagen.

UPS’s Cologne air hub is the centerpiece of the company’s extensive and integrated European air and ground network, which includes 460 operating facilities and 156 daily intra-Europe flight segments, ensuring UPS can deliver to every address in Europe. This efficient network is supported by some of the world’s most advanced technology and gives companies a competitive advantage by providing them the ability to reach virtually any market using one logistics provider door-to-door.

“Hong Kong is a strategically important market for UPS with its proximity to mainland China and its well-established trade connections with the rest of the world,” said Dan Brutto, president of UPS International. “With the EU becoming an important trading partner for many Asian markets, the launch of these flights shows a commitment to Asian businesses by providing them additional and faster options on these trade lanes.”

“The new direct flights significantly reduce the transit time between Hong Kong and Europe, providing our customers a fast and efficient option when doing business with their European trading partners,” added Derek Woodward, president of UPS Asia Pacific. “The rapid speed to market allows them to respond quicker to shifting market demands and in turn, helps them better serve their customers. The new flights also add significant capacity to support the fast-growing Hong Kong to Europe lane, which will benefit many of our air freight customers.”

According to the International Air Transport Association, Hong Kong is the fastest growing international freight market with a projected 12.3% growth rate between 2009 and 2014.

The launch of the new service is being supported with an external marketing campaign featuring print, online and outdoor advertising across central locations in Hong Kong, informing customers that UPS now reaches more of Europe next day, guaranteed, than anyone else.

UPS (NYSE:UPS) is a global leader in logistics, offering a broad range of solutions including the transportation of packages and freight; the facilitation of international trade, and the deployment of advanced technology to more efficiently manage the world of business. Headquartered in Atlanta, UPS serves more than 220 countries and territories worldwide. The company can be found on the Web at UPS.com and its corporate blog can be found at blog.ups.com.

I had originally thought all the cargo goes through Louisville, or perhaps that's Fedex's model with Memphis?

For America, probably is, but don't think Europe shipment is going to the US first.

Hong Kong International Airport and Chicago O'Hare Airport Become "Sister Airports"
Press Release

(HONG KONG, 29 March 2011) – Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA) today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA) establishing Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) and O'Hare International Airport (O'Hare) as "sister airports".

The MOU was signed in Hong Kong by AA Chief Executive Officer Stanley Hui Hon-chung and CDA Commissioner Rosemarie S. Andolino under the witness of Mayor of Chicago Richard M. Daley.

AA CEO Stanley Hui said the agreement would promote cooperation between the two airports in the areas of airport management and customer service. "HKIA and O'Hare are both leading aviation gateways, and therefore we have much in common and a lot to learn from each other. With this agreement, we will be able to form closer ties and exchange our know-how in airport management while maintaining and exceeding passenger expectations. This will help reinforce HKIA's status as a leading international and regional aviation hub and a preferred gateway to the Mainland."

"With the support of Mayor Richard M. Daley, we are honored to establish this new partnership with the Airport Authority Hong Kong," said CDA Commissioner Rosemarie S. Andolino. "This agreement reflects our commitment to work cooperatively in all aspects of our respective airports, and to promote business, commerce, trade, tourism and cultural relations between the Cities of Hong Kong and Chicago. This partnership will be further solidified with the addition of new passenger service by Cathay Pacific Airways between O'Hare and Hong Kong International Airports beginning this September."

The agreement, which is the second of its kind signed by HKIA, outlines various areas of cooperation to build a strong, mutually beneficial relationship between two of the world's busiest airports in all aspects of aviation and its related businesses, such as exchanging expertise in dealing with customer service and sharing information on new technologies. HKIA's first "Sister airport" agreement was signed with the Beijing Capital International Airport in 2010.

HKIA is among very few airports in the world that handle high volumes of passenger and cargo traffic. In 2010, the airport served 51 million passengers and 4.1 million tonnes of cargo. Over 95 airlines operate flight services at HKIA to and from about 160 destinations worldwide, including around 45 points on the Mainland.

The CDA operates O'Hare International Airport and Midway International Airport, which together comprise one of the largest and busiest airport systems in the world. O'Hare is the largest airport in the State of Illinois and the Midwest of the United States. It handles 67 million passengers and 1.57 million tonnes of cargo annually with flights to nearly 200 cities worldwide.

At the moment, there are 14 passenger and 40 cargo flights flying between HKIA and O'Hare every week. Hong Kong-based airline Cathay Pacific has indicated that they would commence a non-stop daily passenger flight to the city in September this year.

As I say every year when the Skytrax rankings come out, their surveying methodology is not scientific, hence the results should be interpreted with much skepticism!

I don't mind if the unfairness is biased in HKG's favour
