Well, major Asian airports invest heavily with their airports because they foresee a huge spike in travel demand, especially from China, India, and Southeast Asia. Sadly, the Philippines hasn't even considered upgrading its current main gateway in Manila to have a larger, more modern, and efficient airport, similar to that of HKG. However, I am very hopeful that a brand new airport in Manila will definitely help get to its goal of 10 million tourists per annum... But, you're right, HKG's midfield terminal is truly getting in shape now. I wonder how many gates at that terminal will be able to accommodate the A380 in the process...?

I think HKG glory days are over

third runway that well enter service in no less than 10 years is going to hamper the airport success and consequently affect HKG'S other major pillars of its economy

If I were SWIRE id get out of CX now!!!

what happen to the can-do attitude where HKG built the longest suspension bridge underwater tunnels and a whole new airport island in 7 years!!!

this third runway planning has been delayed for so long and now they need 10-13 years to only extend the island?!!!

The airport is not yet at capacity, hence all this talk about the 3rd runway is quite early given they anticipated a long time to perform consultation and environmental assessments.

Don't understand why Swire should be so concerned. Cathay makes heaps of money for them.

HKIA Sets Monthly Record for Flight Movements in May
Press Release

HONG KONG, 23 June 2013 - Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) continued to record air traffic growth in all categories in May. During the month, the airport handled 4.7 million passengers and 339,000 tonnes of cargo, showing year-on-year increases of 4.1% and 1.8%, respectively. Flight movements set a new monthly record of 31,040, representing a 6.1% increase compared to the same month last year.

The growth in passenger traffic in May was due to 7% year-on-year growth in visitor traffic and 10% growth in Hong Kong resident traffic. Passenger traffic to/from South East Asia and Mainland China performed particularly well.

The growth in cargo throughput last month was driven mainly by exports and transshipments, which were up 1% and 4%, respectively, from a year ago. During the month, cargo throughput to/from North America outperformed other key regions.

Stanley Hui Hon-chung, Chief Executive Officer of the Airport Authority Hong Kong, said, "We are delighted that monthly flight movement has reached a new record high, beating the previous record of 30,799 set in December 2012.

"Although increasing demand is posing greater challenges, HKIA is dedicated to maintaining our high service standards. We recently reconfigured arrangements at the Meeters and Greeters Hall, setting up extra stanchions and rearranging the waiting area to provide more circulation space for passenger flow. From small improvements to large-scale facility developments, we are committed, as always, to providing travellers with a delightful airport experience," Mr Hui added.

Over the first five months of 2013, passenger traffic increased 4.1% to 23.9 million, while cargo volume also grew 2.2% to 1.6 million tonnes. Flight movements reached 150,080, representing 4.6% growth compared with the same period last year.

On a rolling 12-month basis, passenger numbers handled reached 57.4 million, and cargo volume of nearly 4.06 million tonnes was recorded, representing 3.6% and 3.5% growth, respectively. Flight movements also rose by 4.8% year-on-year to 358,290.

hmm
good planning is to have the third runway ready before it reaches capacity which at the low 3% projection will be 2017-18 the third runway is not going be ready by then!

also its not like HKG has 25% spare capacity during peak times in fact at peak times the capacity is maxed out and out of peak times like post 11pm is not when passengers want to fly out!

SIN has planned much better a third runway can be built so quickly

SIN already have a third runway operational and requires minimal work to bring it up to scratch for civilian use.

Hong Kong has a far more rigorous public consultation period as people demand their voices to be heard.

A price for cutting airport red tape
The Standard
Thursday, June 27, 2013

Airport Authority Hong Kong posted record net profit of HK$5.62 billion for the fiscal year ended March 31.

That performance is outstanding. By comparison, London's Heathrow -among the world's busiest airports - only managed to realize a profit of 46 million (HK$547 million) in 2012.

Therefore, the management of Chek Lap Kok airport deserve kudos, especially for delivering a dividend of HK$4.4 billion for the SAR government.

However, AA chief executive Stanley Hui Hon-chung is camera shy these days amid a series of controversies engulfing the authority.

First, there was the unauthorized overtime claims by its security chief Sidney Chau Foo-cheong, who has been suspended pending an investigation.

Then, Hui was accused of changing the retail lease terms in the middle of tender exercises to favor certain major brands such as Rolex, whose agent is Dickson Concepts.

The company has denied any wrongdoing and is threatening to sue a leading Chinese-language newspaper for libel.

Meanwhile, lawmaker and authority board member Albert Ho Chun-yan said he knows of other cases involving retail leases, but none related to the transfer of benefits.

The controversy, however, exposes a dilemma that the Airport Authority is saddled with. As a public body, it's expected to do everything by the book and make no mistakes.

But at the same time, it's also expected to operate like a commercial entity. The question is, can it swiftly respond to market norms like the private corporations?

Therein lies the challenge. As the authority adheres to the black-and- white, it must also create the maximum commercial benefits.

Anyone who operates shopping malls would be able to tell you that while rent is an important factor, a good business-mix is equally relevant.

Even rent can take various forms - including some based on fixed amounts and others linked to turnover.

Which model to choose depends on the clientele and corporate strategy. At Sun Hung Kai's shopping malls, for example, bookstores are commonly found to provide a cultural oasis.

Hong Kong airport handled 57 million passengers last year, and although it couldn't hope to match the 70 million takeoffs and landings at Heathrow, our airport made much more money.

Could this windfall be related to a growing number of mainlanders transiting through here?

Sound marketing sense is crucial to capitalize on passenger spending. Brands such as Chanel and Rolex are popular among the mainlanders who may only spend an hour shopping while waiting for their connecting flights.

Wouldn't it be legitimate to consider their buying preferences?

The controversy surrounding the changing of tender terms is unfortunate.

Aircraft leasing latest hub proposal for Hong Kong
The Standard
Friday, July 05, 2013

The Economic Development Commission has urged the government to seriously study the possibility of developing the territory into an aircraft leasing hub - a business that could be worth up to US$170 billion (HK$1.3 trillion).

"We will strive to maintain Hong Kong's status as a world-class passenger and cargo air freight center," said Chow Chung-kong, convenor of the working group on transportation, who made the proposal yesterday.

The aircraft leasing business has grown rapidly in the mainland with both aviation and non-aviation companies taking part, including China's two largest banks - ICBC (1398) and Bank of China (3988).

ICBC Leasing signed a memorandum in May with US-based Boeing Corporation to expand its global footprint in aircraft sales and leasing business. The unit has assets worth about 143 billion yuan (HK$181 billion) and manages more than 300 aircraft.

There were 351,684 aircraft landings and take-offs at Hong Kong airport last year.

Regarding the shipping industry, Chow said: "The group is conducting research on how to attract more ship owners and vessel management companies to treat Hong Kong as their headquarters."

Also, Jack So Chak-kwong, convenor of the working group on convention and exhibition industries and tourism, said tourist arrivals will rise sharply in the next 10 years.

"Hong Kong will have to double the supply of hotel rooms, but it will be a great challenge due to insufficient land," So said.

He said more tourist attractions are needed and the group is looking into the possibility of further developing the Kai Tak and Lantau areas.

Victor Lo Chung-wing, convenor of the working group on manufacturing industries, innovative technology, and cultural and creative industries, said the group is thinking about how to attract and train talented people.

After meeting the three groups operating under the EDC, Financial Secretary John Tsang Chun-wah warned yesterday the SAR's development could be hindered if there was a lack of flexibility in managing human resources.

Investigation task force identifies manufacturing defect leading to metal
fatigue of bolts as cause of air-bridge collapse incident

Press Release

HONG KONG, 28 June 2013 – Metal fatigue in the bolts holding together two rotunda flanges was the root cause of the rare air-bridge collapse at Gate W71 of Hong Kong International Airport’s Northwest Concourse on 7 April, the investigation task force announced today. The task force added that the fatigue developed as a result of uneven flange surfaces due to manufacturing defect.

The task force is chaired by independent veteran engineer Edmund Leung Kwong-ho, with John Chai Sung-veng, Executive Director, Projects, Airport Authority Hong Kong (the AA) serving as vice-chairperson. Dr George Greene and Dr Eric Lim from Safety Accident and Failure Experts Ltd. are acting as lead consultants of the task force’s technical working group.

The investigation included a comprehensive analysis of the facts and evidence related to the technical and operational aspects of the collapsed air bridge. The task force’s technical working group performed a series of scientific laboratory and on-site tests covering ultrasonic inspection, air bridge control record analysis, vibration and acceleration analysis, apron pavement survey, bolt-matching, laboratory testing for bolts, rotunda flange flatness measurement, stress analysis and calculations, and extensive document and records reviews. The operation working group interviewed over 15 witnesses, and collected and analysed environment data such as wind, humidity, rainfall and visibility.

"We have determined that the two rotunda flanges, which were connected at the rotunda column of the rear bridge, contained manufacturing defect that caused their mating surfaces to fit unevenly," explained Edmund Leung Kwong-ho. "The resulting stress imbalance on the rotunda flanges and bolts induced extensive cyclic load and substantially increased the tension of some of the bolts securing them, leading to the development of metal fatigue and fracture."

Based on these findings, Mr Leung concluded that the flange defect was the root cause of the collapse, which was triggered by the air-bridge passing over a hump in the pavement, causing a sudden jerking motion. The resulting load broke the fatigued bolts and forced the two rotunda flanges to split apart. He added that he considered the collapse to be a rare incident.

The investigation revealed that the AA invited the OEM manufacturer, Bukaka, to conduct a technical audit on six air bridges in late 2009 to review the robustness of maintenance. Two of the six bridges, located at the Northwest Concourse, had the same design as the collapsed bridges and Bukaka did not inspect the rotunda flanges or bolts during the audit.

The current bridge maintenance company contracted Bukaka in early 2012 to provide maintenance training for their staff. The maintenance training and training materials did not refer to a need to check the rotunda flange bolts.

However, during the investigation, it was found that a page in the air bridge's Operation and Maintenance Manuals refers to checking bolts and tightening torque, but was not included in the Maintenance Task Check Lists and contained inaccurate information about the size of the bolts and their torque setting. The task force is of the view that this was not a factor leading to the collapse of the bridge.

On the maintenance of the bridge, the investigation concluded that the AA and its service providers carried out preventive maintenance in accordance with the schedule outlined in the operation and maintenance manuals provided by the manufacturer.

With regard to the operation of the bridge, the task force has reviewed and examined a myriad of factors such as operating environment, procedure and staff competency and workload. No operational non-compliance was identified.

CK Ng, Executive Director, Airport Operations, said, "We appreciate the in-depth, professional inquiry conducted by the Investigation task force into this incident. We accept the investigation findings and are adopting all of the recommendations.

"We regret that the defect of the collapsed rear bridge could not be detected sooner, although every effort was made to ensure the quality of air bridge prior to its commissioning, and to adhere to the maintenance task check lists provided by the air bridge’s OEM manufacturer," he added.

The AA added that, in addition to following up with the manufacturer and other relevant entities, it would implement the task force's recommendation to review operational and maintenance manuals to ensure that there is no discrepancy. It added it will strengthen its maintenance regime by conducting ultrasonic inspections on the rotunda flange bolts every half-year, and by checking the structural bolts’ torque annually even though such measures are normally not specified in regular maintenance programmes and not commonly adopted for structural parts.

Following the incident, the AA suspended nine rear bridges of the same design and conducted flange flatness measurements and ultrasonic inspections on the bolts. Small gaps were found in the flanges of four of the suspended bridges, although no signs of similar uneven flange surfaces or weakening or metal fatigue were found. As a safety precaution, the four bridges will remain suspended until they are thoroughly examined, repaired or replaced, while the others would be returned to normal operation today.

The AA reiterated its commitment to the safety of its passengers, employees and business partners, adding that it would extend regular checks to the structural aspects of the air bridges. It has also earmarked more than HK$80 million to overhaul all air bridges at Terminal 1 – a refurbishment programme that is underway and scheduled for completion in phases by 2015 – and is planning an overall review of maintenance schedules for other airport facilities.
