Renaming Hong Kong airport: Sun Yat-sen better than Chek Lap Kok?
Nov 30, 2011 9:00AM UTC
Elmer W. Cagape
asiancorrespondent.com

Leonardo da Vinci, Benito Juárez, John F Kennedy and Abraham Lincoln: some of the personalities immortalized, among other things, by airports named after them. In the case of Hong Kong, a group of aviation enthusiasts are proposing that “Sun Yat-sen International Airport” be the new name of Hong Kong International Airport. This is in line with the centenary of the 1911 revolution on which Sun Yat-sen was a prominent figure in overthrowing China’s last imperial dynasty.

The city’s aviation gateway is also known as Chek Lap Kok, named after an island flattened and extended to make way for the current airport to be built in the ’90s.

“Not just the father of the nation, you could say he [Sun] was also the father of aviation in China,” said Gordon Andreassand, vice-chairman of the Hong Kong Historical Aviation Society.

Mr Andreassand’s speech at the inauguration of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology‘s aeronautic-interest group sparked interest among student population that a petition to rename Hong Kong International Airport after the revolutionary leader.

With Sun Yat-sen’s experience in the aviation industry – he was credited as the first person to build an aeroplane in China in 1923 – he deserved to have an airport named after him more than many others. Hong Kong is an appropriate location, advocates say, noting that his mother was buried in the city and in 1923 he credits the University of Hong Kong as his intellectual birthplace.

But this airport name change request could face a number of obstacles. For one, it’s notable in mainland China that no big airports are named after famous people in history. Thus, Beijing, which has sovereignty over Hong Kong, might object to the name-change plan.

If an airport has a pretty good record in service or facilities, then it brings even more honor to the figure it’s named after. But what about Charles de Gaulle in Paris and Manila’s Ninoy Aquino airport, named after the father of the current Philippine president, get bad reputation as among the worst airports in the world? For Hong Kong, it’s on the other side of the yardstick, receiving awards and recognitions for years. The risk of potential PR nightmare is not that high.

But for Airport Authority, which says it has no plan to change Chek Lap Kok name at the moment, even the centenary of a historical event may not be enough to persuade it to rename the airport.

Interesting proposition, but the AA is probably too occupied with the 3rd runway proposal and consultation results to care much about this.

Seems like the 3rd runway consultation results are going to be done by the end of the year.

Midfield Development Breaks Ground
Press release

(HONG KONG, 9 December 2011) – Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) today held a grand groundbreaking ceremony for the Midfield development. Phase 1 of the project is scheduled for completion by the end of 2015.

The Midfield area is the last piece of land on the airside for large-scale development on the airport island. It is located to the west of Terminal 1 and between the two existing runways. To maximise its usage, AAHK has worked closely with experts and stakeholders to enhance and finalise the design details of the project since the project was unveiled earlier this year. These include expanding the size of the Midfield Concourse and its adjacent apron area, as well as incorporating a wide range of green initiatives, such as installation of one of the largest arrays of rooftop solar panels in Hong Kong.

As a result, the phase 1 Midfield project now includes the construction of a five-level Midfield Concourse with total floor area of 78,000 sq m and over 35 green features; 20 aircraft parking stands; an Automated People Mover (APM) extending from Terminal 1; a cross-field taxiway; and other supporting facilities.

The works are expected to cost HK$9 billion and create 2,000 jobs during construction. When completed, the airport will have an additional handling capacity of 10 million passengers per annum.


Secretary for Transport and Housing Eva Cheng said, "Today we witness the kicking off of the construction works of the first phase of the midfield expansion development. With the completion of the expansion in 2015, we will be able to handle 10 million more passengers per year and provide more parking stands for both passengers and cargo operation. This is an important addition to the infrastructure inventory of the Hong Kong International Airport. Having regard to the increase in the air traffic demand, the midfield expansion project will be developed in phases to increase the airport's handling capacity to about 70 million passengers and six million tonnes of cargo, which is expected to cope with air traffic demand by 2020."

Ms Cheng said while projects and plans are well in place to take care of needs up to 2020, Hong Kong needs to take forward long term plans to meet future needs. Referring to a comprehensive three-month public consultation exercise conducted by the Airport Authority to collate public views on two strategic development options set out in the Master Plan 2030, the Secretary said, "We look forward to receiving a recommendation from the Authority on the way forward soon. We will study the recommendation carefully with a view to deciding as soon as we can on the next stage of work."

AAHK's Chairman Dr Marvin Cheung Kin-tung said, "While the phase 1 project development is to help HKIA cope with the increasing passenger traffic and needs for parking stands in the medium term, our efforts to pave the way for our long-term development continue. We recently completed the three-month public consultation on the airport's Master Plan 2030, and we remain on course to submit our recommendations to the Government before the end of this month."

AAHK's Chief Executive Officer Stanley Hui Hon-chung added that the Midfield development is not only a milestone project to enhance the airport's handling capacity, but also an example of AAHK's commitment to environmental protection and sustainable growth. "The Midfield Concourse is designed to be highly environmentally friendly and aspires to be one of the first BEAM Plus Gold Standard certified buildings in Hong Kong. Its over 35 green initiatives cover various aspects ranging from the building's site, materials, energy and water use to construction methods. We hope that through our continuing efforts, the airport will grow with Hong Kong in a sustainable way."

BEAM Plus is a comprehensive assessment scheme to certify the environmental performance of buildings.

The design of the Midfield Concourse adopts a multi-pronged strategy to achieve environmental protection. On the energy saving front, over 1,200 sq m of rooftop solar panels will be installed to harness renewable energy. Over 80% of the Concourse's lighting will be LED lights, and high-performance glazing panels, solar shading and north-facing skylights will be used to maximise natural light and reduce solar heat gain.

Meanwhile, to reuse and recycle wherever possible is one of AAHK's core green values. During the Midfield Concourse construction, 60% of the waste produced will be recycled. When in operation, the Concourse will use recycled grey water, condensate water and rain water for the water-cooled chillers used in the air conditioning system. In addition, the APM system connecting Terminal 1 to the Concourse will use the energy generated from braking to support its operation.

These initiatives are expected to achieve energy saving of over 20% compared to the baseline established by the Building Energy Council, contributing to HKIA's goal of being not only one of the finest, but also the greenest, airports in the world.

Cathay jet lands safely after engine shut off
The Standard
Tuesday, December 13, 2011

A Cathay Pacific flight from Taipei to Hong Kong landed with just three of its engines, after one was switched off due to a technical glitch.

The CX471 flight left Taipei at 9.37am yesterday with 148 passengers and 12 crew aboard.

About 30 minutes before its arrival one engine was switched off after it was found to have problems.

The aircraft landed without incident at 11.34am, with all passengers and crew safe.

A Cathay Pacific spokeswoman said the Airbus A340 is undergoing checks to reveal the cause of the technical problems.

"An aircraft with only one engine can still fly safely. Switching off the engine is a precautionary measure," she said.

In a separate incident on Friday, Cathay Pacific flight CX365, carrying more than 350 passengers and crew, was evacuated after smoke was detected in the cabin as it was about to leave Shanghai for Hong Kong.

Nine people suffered minor injuries during the emergency evacuation.

According to Xinhua News Agency, the smoke was caused by equipment failure.

Passengers took photos of others jumping on emergency slides to exit.

The airline has launched an investigation into the incident, saying it is working with the authorities at Shanghai Pudong International airport.

The Boeing 747-400 jet remained in Shanghai where it is undergoing maintenance.

HKIA Master Plan 2030:
Over 70% of Respondents Prefer Three-runway System

Government Press Release
29 December 2011

Airport Authority recommends Government to adopt three-runway option as HKIA’s development direction


(HONG KONG, 29 December 2011) – Members of the public have shown a clear preference for Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) to meet the city’s long-term air traffic demand by developing a three-runway system, according to an independent report produced by the Social Sciences Research Centre (SSRC) of the University of Hong Kong (HKU).

The SSRC was appointed by AAHK to compile, analyse and report on the views collected during the three-month public consultation on Hong Kong International Airport Master Plan 2030 (MP2030) that was held between 3 June and 2 September 2011.

Responses to the feedback questionnaire on MP2030 were very encouraging. A total of 24,242 questionnaires received during the consultation were analysed in the main text of the report. Seventy-three per cent of respondents to the quantitative survey said they prefer the three-runway option, with 11% opting to maintain the two-runway system and 16% remaining neutral. The HKU report also indicated that the majority of respondents (80%) agree or strongly agree that AAHK should make a decision urgently on Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA)'s future expansion plans, while just 6% hold the opposite view.

Having carefully considered the findings of the public consultation exercise – and the importance of meeting future demand growth and strengthening Hong Kong's role as a leading regional and international aviation centre – the Board of AAHK today submitted its recommendation to the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government to adopt, for planning purposes, the three-runway option as the future development option for HKIA. The Board also recommended proceeding with the statutory Environmental Impact Assessment process and the preparation of associated design details.

In addition to over 24,000 questionnaires received online and from collection boxes located at HKIA and numerous roving exhibitions, SSRC also took into account qualitative comments collected through channels such as the public forums, Legislative Council and District Council meetings, signature campaigns, opinion surveys and more.

"We are very pleased to have received so many valuable views from the public and a wide range of stakeholders about the two development options we presented for HKIA," said Dr Marvin Cheung Kin-tung, Chairman of AAHK. "There is a clear consensus on the need to make a decision regarding HKIA’s expansion as soon as possible, and it is also clear that the majority of those who participated in the consultation prefer the third-runway option."

"The AAHK Board would like to express its heartfelt thanks to everyone who offered their views through the questionnaires and other platforms. The Board carefully considered all the feedback, and based on these deliberations, it has submitted its recommendation to Government to adopt the three-runway option as the future development blueprint for HKIA for planning purposes. We look forward to receiving Government's support for our recommendations and hope that a decision will be made as soon as practicable," Dr Cheung added.

Commenting on way forward, Stanley Hui Hon-chung, Chief Executive Officer of AAHK, said, "We are taking another important step in a long journey. We will continue our efforts to carefully plan ahead and engage our stakeholder groups as we prepare for the subsequent phases of work."

The public consultation generated extensive, in-depth discussion across the community on a broad range of issues related to MP2030, including the two-runway and three-runway development options for HKIA. Respondents to the quantitative survey were asked to evaluate eight key considerations impacting AAHK’s decision on expansion, including HKIA’s connectivity, Hong Kong’s competitiveness, environmental impact, financial cost and others.

Qualitative findings confirmed a consensus among stakeholders that enhanced air connectivity results in increased economic growth, competitiveness and job creation. Respondents were also aware of the negative impact that could result from failing to build a third runway, with little in the way of dissent.

The primary areas of concern are the environmental impact of the third runway and whether there was enough information in the consultation paper documents to adequately evaluate the impact of the options. There is consensus that the statutory Environmental Impact Assessment should commence as soon as possible to allow the necessary informed debate about how the environmental impact could be mitigated.

"While a clear majority of respondents prefer building a third runway, we understand how important it is for us to avoid, minimise, mitigate and compensate for the environmental impact that could result," added Mr Hui. "No effort will be spared in addressing each of these issues, particularly marine ecology, aircraft noise and air quality. After the completion of the three-month consultation, we have continued engaging with our stakeholders, including professional bodies, young people, green groups, other NGOs and more. This dialogue will continue as we proceed further."

Professor John Bacon-Shone, Director of the SSRC of HKU said, "The AAHK solicited a large amount of feedback during the public consultation, and the SSRC took the utmost care to compile and analyse it in a fair and independent manner. We believe that the results of the quantitative and qualitative surveys presented in the report give a true indication of the preferences and attitudes of the respondents to the consultation."

The full HKU report (in English) and its executive summary (in English and Chinese) are available on www.hkairport2030.com and www.hongkongairport.com.

Airport Authority Welcomes New Air Services Arrangement between
Hong Kong and Taiwan

Press Release

HONG KONG, 30 December 2011 – The Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA) welcomed the new Air Services Arrangement signed today between Hong Kong and Taiwan. The new arrangement will further liberalise the aviation market between Hong Kong and Taiwan and strengthen Hong Kong’s position as a leading international and regional aviation centre.

Stanley Hui Hon-chung, Chief Executive Officer of AA, said, “The arrangement will greatly promote the ties between Hong Kong and Taiwan in terms of business, cultural exchange and leisure travel. The increase in cargo capacity is particularly notable, with a strong increase of more than 70% to 3,000 tonnes per week for each side by summer of 2012.

“In addition, the arrangement allows new airlines to operate services between Hong Kong and Taiwan, which will translate into more choices of airlines and flight frequencies for passengers,” added Mr Hui.

Passenger capacity will grow from 170 to 205 flights per week by summer of 2012, meaning an additional five flights a day in each direction between Hong Kong and Taiwan.

At the moment, the passenger and cargo capacities between Hong Kong and Taiwan are 170 flights and 1,700 tonnes per week respectively for each side.

I guess this is in-response for QF's denied request of increasing flights between Hong Kong and Australia in the form of a capacity increase.

Qantas begins Airbus A380 flights to Hong Kong



Qantas will begin flying its Airbus A380 between Sydney and Kong Kong route this weekend, making it only the fourth city – after Singapore, London and Los Angeles – graced by the flagship of the Red Roo fleet.

Starting on Sunday January 15th the A380 will replace the current Boeing 747-400 on the morning QF127 service from Sydney to Hong Kong, and the companion QF128 flight from Hong Kong to Sydney for four days per week: Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
The remaining three days of QF127/128 will continue with the Boeing 747-400, with a Qantas spokeswoman telling Australian Business Traveller "there are no plans for a daily A380 Hong Kong service at this stage."

Sadly, nor is this HK-bound Boeing 747 one of those refitted with A380-style seats and interiors – so if you've got wiggle room in your travel schedule, those A380 days are the ones to book.

To make the most of your trip, check out our guide to the best seats on the Qantas Airbus A380 – as well as the seats to avoid – for business class and premium economy.
And if you're heading onwards from Hong Kong to London with British Airways, you'll want to choose the best BA flight for your connection – see our guide to the best BA flights from Hong Kong to London.

With 12 Airbus A380s now in the fleet, Qantas is ramping up its superjumbo services. On January 17th the Melbourne-Los Angeles flights QF93/QF94 will feature an A380 every day, as will the Melbourne-Singapore-London QF9/QF10 (currently six days per week).
