CAD responds to media enquiries on safety issues concerning the third runway
Tuesday, July 10, 2012
Government Press Release

In response to media enquiries concerning safety issues related to the third runway, a spokesman for the Civil Aviation Department (CAD) today (July 10) gave the following response:

"In formulating the Master Plan 2030, the Airport Authority Hong Kong in conjunction with National Air Traffic Services have developed and designed the position and alignment of the third runway and its associated flight paths (including approach, departure, and missed approach flight paths) in accordance with standards laid down by the International Civil Aviation Organization (reference document ICAO Document 8168), ensuring the "Obstacle Clearance" along the flight paths between an aircraft and ground obstacles shall meet the stipulated safety requirements. Flight procedure design experts of the CAD also endorsed the said design.

On flight path design, the current North/South Runway operation mode already enables maximum aircraft movements at the Hong Kong International Airport. Departing on the North Runway towards Tuen Mun will not increase runway capacity under the dual-runway system."

Hong Kong claims 'world’s first' airport IMAX theater
AFP
Thu, Jul 5, 2012

With around 53 million people making their way through its halls each year, the Hong Kong International Airport has worked hard to offer distractions and attractions to weary travelers.

Add now to the seemingly endless array of shops and dining options add what management is claiming is the world's first IMAX theater at an airport, a HK$20 million (two million euro) complex that features the largest IMAX screen in Hong Kong - at an estimated 13.9 meters high and 22.4 meters wide - that from Thursday will be offering the latest blockbusters presented in the special IMAX format.

According to the theater operators UA Cinemas, the "crystal-clear images, laser-aligned digital sound system as well as immersive theater design" gives the audience the "most immersive movie experience" in either 2D or 3D.

Kicking things off at UA IMAX Theatre @Airport is the 3D version of the smash hit The Amazing Spider-Man.

United Airlines computer glitch leads to 1st big test of DOT rule on post-purchase price hikes
Associated Press
19 July 2012

NEW YORK, N.Y. - It was an airfare deal too good to be true: fly first class to Hong Kong for just 4 frequent flier miles and $33 in taxes.

Clearly, it was a computer glitch. But it's also turning out to be the first major test of the Department of Transportation's new consumer protection rules prohibiting airlines from "increasing the price after the consumer completes the purchase."

On Sunday, computers at United Airlines erroneously let passengers book flights to Hong Kong — or other places in Asia connecting in Hong Kong — in exchange for 4 miles, plus government taxes. Frequent fliers quickly shared the error on blogs and online chat rooms. Some, such as Ben Schlappig who runs the site One Mile at a Time, advised people not to call the airline, saying, "there's no need to bring further attention to this pricing."

A business class seat for a flight on United to Hong Kong goes for about $8,500 or 120,000 frequent flier miles; first class costs $10,250 or 140,000 miles.

Before long, hundreds, if not thousands, of fliers — the airline won't say how many — booked trips. United eventually pulled the plug and announced it wasn't honouring tickets already sold. People could get a refund without paying a penalty or have the proper amount of miles deducted. Anyone who had already started their trip would be allowed to complete their travel.

Several people who booked tickets complained to the DOT, which is now investigating.

"Our rule on post-purchase price increases applies to frequent flier tickets, particularly when they also entail cash payments," DOT spokesman Bill Mosley said via email.

There's one sticking point in this case: the cost advertised was actually correct. A ticket searcher initially saw a cost of 120,000 miles. It was only when customers went to book that the 4 mile figure appeared. And if customers had the full 120,000 miles in their accounts, that was actually deducted. Those with less had no miles deducted. All passengers were charged the appropriate taxes.

Mosley said the agency hadn't yet "reached any conclusions."

The maximum penalty per violation is $27,500 but the government has wide discretion in what amount to actual fine. DOT says each ticket sold by United could be considered a separate violation.

Susan Clarke, a 62-year-old retired teacher from Aiken, S.C., is one of the people who bought a ticket. She knew it was a computer glitch but booked a trip for March anyway.

"United just made a big mistake and needs to honour it," she said. "That was their mistake, wasn't it?"

But those who make a living off finding airfare sales say there is a difference between a good deal and taking advantage of a mistake.

"When a waiter adds up the check wrong in my favour, I let him or her know. When a clerk hands me back too much change, I give it back," said George Hobica, founder of AirfareWatchdog. "These fliers knew that this was a mistake, and they should treat an airline the same way they treat any other entity."

Budget airline Jetstar applies for Hong Kong licence
July 20, 2012 11:20PM
AFP

The Civil Aviation Department confirmed it had received an application for an air operator's certificate from the 50-50 joint venture between Australia's Qantas Airways and China Eastern Airlines, Dow Jones Newswires reported.

The application comes four months after the two airlines said they would launch a new Hong Kong-based budget airline aimed at cashing in on China's booming aviation market.

The application shows that the airline meets all "necessary regulatory requirements," and that "its principal place of business and centre of its decision-making is in Hong Kong itself", Jetstar said on its website.

"Jetstar Hong Kong is anticipated to add billions of dollars a year in economic activity for the city, as well as several hundred skilled jobs, by the time it reaches 18 aircraft in 2015."

Analysts in the Asian financial centre had expressed doubts that the airline could fulfil the requirements for a licence.

Qantas and China Eastern each have an equal stake in Jetstar Hong Kong and expects the new airline to have a capitalisation of around $US200 million ($193 million).

Jetstar Hong Kong, which will be a pioneer in the China budget market, is aiming to launch in mid-2013 with a fleet of three Airbus A320s.

Mountain fear raised on third runway plan
The Standard
Wednesday, July 11, 2012

A veteran pilot doubts whether government planners can get on top of mountainous challenges to a third runway at Hong Kong International Airport.

Retired Cathay Pacific senior first officer Jan Bochenski, with 21 years of flying experience, said he and many other pilots fail to see a way around problems unless there is a mountain-cutting plan.

The 957-meter Tai Mo Shan, the highest mountain in the territory, is in the middle of the flight path to the proposed third runway, Bochenski said, and pilots about to land will need to bank aircraft at a sharp angle.

But a towering concern, he said, is Castle Peak at 583m being in the middle of a third runway's essential escape route if something went wrong on landing.

He asked: "Is the government planning to cut down Castle Peak? Maybe." But how could a pilot face face such high ground if a plane lost an engine? This, he said, would be "impossible."

Even if all engines were functioning, Bochenski added, aircraft need considerable power to clear mountains.

He also said that if aircraft were to try to avoid facing Castle Peak this would crowd airspace occupied by those using the other two runways.

The Airport Authority has already discussed routes linked to a third runway with Britain's National Air Traffic Services.

An authority spokesman also said there would be enough "obstacle clearance" to meet requirements of the International Civil Aviation Organization.

Aviation passenger fuel surcharges lowered
23 July 2012
The Standard

The new maximum levels of fuel surcharges will be $219 for short-haul flights and $973 for long-haul flights, which represent a reduction of 8 per cent and 7 per cent from the current maximum levels, the Civil Aviation Department approved today.

Passenger fuel surcharges are reviewed regularly by the CAD. The last review was done at the end of June when the maximum surcharge levels approved by the CAD were $237 for short-haul flights and $1,043 for long-haul flights.

HKIA Job Expo 2012 Opens
Providing More Than 5,900 Employment Opportunities

Press Release

(HONG KONG, 3 August 2012) – A three-day "Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) Job Expo 2012", co-organised by the Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) and the Labour Department at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC), opens today, showcasing more than 5,900 vacancies offered by over 50 companies of the airport community. It opens from 1600hrs to 2000hrs today and from 1100hrs to 1800hrs on 4 and 5 August. This is the largest industry-focused job expo co-hosted with the Labour Department in recent years.

HKIA is a major source of employment for Hong Kong. As the aviation industry continues to develop, it is in strong demand for talents of all levels. It perfectly matches the demand of Hong Kong's employment market, especially with the additional job seekers from the two batches of senior secondary school graduates in this unique double cohort year.

The vacancies at the Job Expo cover a wide variety of job types at the airport, including cabin services, aircraft maintenance, air cargo, airport security, cleaning, baggage handling, retail sales, technician, engineering, catering and property management.

Of the positions on offer, more than half are at the low-skilled and junior entry levels. Some only require education level of Secondary 6 under the New Senior Secondary academic structure, or Secondary 7 under the old academic structure or lower. Some of the vacancies are open to job seekers without any working experience. Monthly salaries range from HK$7,000 to HK$45,000.

Secretary for Transport and Housing Professor Anthony Cheung Bing-leung, Secretary for Labour and Welfare Matthew Cheung Kin-chung and AAHK Chief Executive Officer Stanley Hui Hon-chung officiated at the opening ceremony of the job expo today.

Secretary for Transport and Housing Professor Anthony Cheung said, "The HKIA Job Expo highlights the important role played by the airport in the local labour market and also reflects the strong demand of the aviation industry for local labour.

"The future development of the aviation industry and other sectors of the Hong Kong economy is closely related and reinforces each other. It is therefore vital to maintain and enhance Hong Kong's status as an international aviation hub because it is extremely important to Hong Kong's long term development. Aviation development and in particular, airport development, concerns everyone," added Professor Cheung.

Secretary for Labour and Welfare Matthew Cheung said, "The HKIA Job Expo 2012 has attracted over 50 companies that are providing diverse services in the Hong Kong International Airport. It is a precious opportunity that over 5,900 positions are offered to job seekers of different background and interests."

Mr Cheung said the job expo was timely in providing not only job opportunities but useful employment-related information for the youths, noting that the Government had stepped up pre-employment training and employment services for secondary school leavers in this double cohort year.

Also speaking at the ceremony, AAHK Chief Executive Officer Stanley Hui said, "Given a buoyant job market in Hong Kong, the aviation industry is in constant demand for manpower. I believe this job expo serves as an ideal platform for our business partners to recruit right talents to cater to their operational needs.

"The prospect of the aviation industry is promising and robust. To meet the growth demand, we have started the HK$12.4-billion Midfield and West Apron developments, while planning to expand HKIA into a three-runway system. With these projects underway, the industry will continue to play a significant role in Hong Kong's employment market, and help nurture the youth workforce in Hong Kong," added Mr Hui.

Job seekers are also welcome to attend the 15 career talks given by some participating companies during the three-day job expo. The talks feature the latest information and career prospects about different sectors of the aviation industry, and will provide hints and tips for job seekers in navigating their career journey.

Information of the job expo is available at the dedicated website of HKIA Job Expo 2012 http://www.hongkongairport.com/jobexpo2012/eng/.
