Hong Kong Flights Cancelled as Typhoon Utor Hits
14 August 2013
Dow Jones

HONG KONG--Over 200 flights at Hong Kong's airport have been cancelled or delayed while schools, banks and the local stock market were shut on Wednesday, as the city braced for the impact of Typhoon Utor.

The Hong Kong Observatory raised the No. 8 storm signal at 1:40 a.m. overnight, the third-highest warning level in the city's system. A government spokesman said it expects that the signal will remain in force for the morning.

High winds whipped through the city as the storm approached from the southwest, with gusts recorded as high as 86 miles per hour sweeping across the island of Lantau, which lies west of Hong Kong Island. According to the observatory, the storm will be the closest to Hong Kong during the day, before it makes its way towards Guangdong Province's western coast. As of 10 a.m., the storm's center was about 260 kilometers from the city.

Hong Kong's airport authority said it expects a total of 100 flights, including 52 departing and 48 arriving flights, to be cancelled on Wednesday, while it anticipates a further 125 flight delays. The city's dominant airline, Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd, (0293.HK) said it and its Dragonair unit are cancelling a total of 31 flights to and from Hong Kong, though most of the affected flights are on short regional routes.

Weather conditions are limiting operations at the airport but many flights are still departing and landing, the authority said.

Elsewhere in Hong Kong, no severe flooding or landslides have been reported. Ferry terminals in the city were also closed.

Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Ltd. said that it has cancelled its morning trading session. Should the storm persist and if the signal remains in force at 12 noon, all trading sessions will then be canceled. For a No. 8 storm signal, the government recommends that residents stand away from the windows and stay away from the shoreline.

One woman has sought local medical treatment as the result of the storm, according to the government, and has been admitted to the hospital in stable condition. No further details about the woman's case were available. In the Philippines, Typhoon Utor left at least three people dead.

CEB adds 36% more seats on Manila-Hong Kong route
Utilizes A330 aircraft to accommodate demand

August 5, 2013
Press Release

The Philippines’ largest national flag carrier, Cebu Pacific Air (PSE: CEB) will utilize its brand-new Airbus A330 aircraft on one of its daily Manila-Hong Kong-Manila flights, from September 16 to October 4, 2013. This increases the number of available CEB seats on this route by 36%.

CEB upgraded the aircraft used for flights 5J 118/119 between Manila and Hong Kong, from a 180-seater Airbus A320 to a 436-seater Airbus A330 aircraft. This is scheduled after CEB accepts delivery of its 2nd Airbus A330 aircraft from Toulouse, France in September 2013.

The airline flies four times daily from Manila to Hong Kong, daily from both Clark and Cebu to Hong Kong, and twice weekly from Iloilo to Hong Kong.

“There is a great degree of interest in travel to Hong Kong, and we at Cebu Pacific want to continuously stimulate this demand with our trademark lowest fares, and more flights and routes. To date, we offer guests the most number of routes to Hong Kong, providing many travelers from all over the Philippines fast and convenient access to this popular international destination,” said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.

To further promote travel to Hong Kong, CEB holds a P999 seat sale from Manila until August 7, 2013 or until seats last. The P999 seats are for travel from September 15 to November 30, 2013.

For bookings and inquiries, guests can go to www.cebupacificair.com, or call the reservation hotlines (02)7020-888 or (032)230-8888. The latest seat sales can also be found on CEB’s official Twitter and Facebook pages.

CEB earlier announced it will operate a total of six brand-new Airbus A330 aircraft by 2015. These aircraft will be utilized for CEB’s long-haul operations, which will be launched with direct daily Manila-Dubai services on October 7, 2013.

Since its inception in 1996, CEB has flown over 75 million passengers. It also posted a good track record in stimulating short-haul travel of passengers around Asia, with an 11% system-wide passenger growth in 2012.

CEB currently offers 22 international destinations, namely Bali, Bangkok, Beijing, Brunei, Busan, Dubai, Guangzhou, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh, Hong Kong, Incheon (Seoul), Jakarta, Kota Kinabalu, Kuala Lumpur, Macau, Osaka, Phuket, Shanghai, Siem Reap, Singapore, Taipei and Xiamen. It also operates the most extensive network in the Philippines with 34 domestic destinations and hubs in Manila, Cebu, Clark, Kalibo, Iloilo and Davao.

Thought they already fly an A380 from SYD-HKG already. I flew on it late last year. Is this a second daily frequency?

Nope. They fly to Beijing only in China.

so by mid 2020 Changi is going to have 5 terminals and 4 runways

HKG is just going to have its third runway by then ( under the BIG assumption that the HKG government starts constructing the runway by 2020)

if this is HKG's investment plan for their future- they are going to lose the lead as Asia's largest International Hub ( exc middle east- Dubai took over last year- so much for HKG being at China's doorstep)

but the HKG govt things passenger numbers will only increase 3% EVERY YEAR this is obviously far from the truth- look at this years numbers!!

US airports generally have more runways due to their use of smaller jets, which means more movements but relatively less passenger traffic.

Currently, the airport is not yet at capacity. The biggest obstacle to growth is not runway space, but airspace restrictions in China.

At this point, I think the Singaporeans should be more afraid of their hub role as Qantas just shifted their Europe hub to Dubai, while opening up a new LCC subsidiary in HK.

Even though Qantas is the 'legacy airline' of Australia, it doesn't have a very good reputation here. The only people I know that religiously fly it are older people (scared of foreign food, etc) and business people who have corporate travel deals.

Everyone else prefers to fly with Asian carriers. They always have better service, entertainment and great transit airports.

I had to fly Qantas from HKG-SYD last year because they were cheaper. Food-wise was OK, the flight attendants were pretty good, and the overall experience was pleasant. I think CX's seat is far better though!

Nevertheless, their tie-up with Emirates has quite a large impact on traffic. I suspect EK has the largest market share amongst the foreign airlines on the kangaroo route these days.

Hence I think this is why British Airways invited Qatar Airways to join oneworld.

Jetstar fights Oz claims in race for takeoff green light
21 August 2013
The Standard

Jetstar Hong Kong yesterday stressed that it is a local entity and therefore entitled to an aviation license that the budget carrier is still waiting for.

The airline said 70 percent of its directors are Hong Kong residents, which fulfills the condition of being a local entity, chief executive Edward Lau Chung-wai said.

Lau was responding to recent comments by Cathay Pacific (0293).

The territory's de-facto flag carrier said the budget airline is based in Australia, so it is not eligible under the Basic Law to get an aviation license.

Lau said the entire management is based in Hong Kong.

"I make business decisions myself and report directly to the Hong Kong-based board,'' he noted.

The airline submitted an application for a license two months ago and is still awaiting approval.

Lau said he is confident the outcome will be positive.

Shun Tak Holdings (0242), Qantas and China Eastern Airlines (0670) each hold one-third of Jetstar Hong Kong.

Jetstar said it aims, after getting all necessary authorizations, to launch short-haul routes in the region.

Routes in the mainland will focus on second- and third-tier cities with large populations.

Lau said the company hopes to offer tickets at half the price of full-cost airlines and expects to reap HK$8 billion a year after reaching full capacity.

If approved, Jetstar said it would create 1,000 direct and indirect jobs in the local market.

It believes Hong Kong International Airport is not saturated and plans to have its flights depart during off-peak hours.

Separately, 92 percent of Hong Kong residents think existing air fares are too high, a poll conducted by the Public Opinion Programme of the University of Hong Kong and sponsored by Jetstar found.

More than three-fourths (79 percent) of the respondents said they would travel more if the flight tickets were cheaper and nearly 70 percent intend to fly on a budget airline some time during the next 12 months.

Here is the press release : http://news.delta.com/index.php?s=43&item=2082

Excerpt :

SEATTLE, Aug. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Air Lines will add new daily nonstop service from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport to Seoul-Incheon International Airport and Hong Kong International Airport (both subject to government approval) beginning June 2 and June 16, 2014, respectively. Tickets will be available for purchase Aug. 24, 2013.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20090202/DELTALOGO )

"By offering new service from Seattle to Seoul and Hong Kong, Delta will now offer customers service to the top five destinations in Asia," said Mike Medeiros, Delta's vice president – Seattle. "Our expanding Seattle network, combined with investments in our aircraft, the airport and the community shows our commitment to become Seattle's premier international carrier."

Delta is able to offer new service to Seoul and Hong Kong due to strong support from its local Seattle and Pacific Northwest customers as well as its strategic partnership with Alaska Airlines. The new service will complement existing service to Shanghai, Beijing and Tokyo. All five destinations are the leading commercial centers in the region, a benefit for corporate customers traveling between the U.S. and Asia.

Like all of Delta's trans-Pacific flights, the new Seoul and Hong Kong services feature full-flat bed seats in BusinessElite – each with direct aisle access – as well as Economy Comfort seating and in-flight entertainment in every seat throughout the aircraft. Delta's BusinessElite service includes a five-course gourmet meal, paired with a wine menu curated by Master Sommelier Andrea Robinson. The in-flight experience is completed with Westin Heavenly In-Flight bedding, which includes exclusively designed pillows and comforters, as well as Tumi amenity kits with products from Malin+Goetz. Every seat throughout the aircraft offers a personal on-demand entertainment system featuring an extensive library of movies, TV shows, music and games.

Hong Kong service will operate using a 234-seat Airbus 330-200 aircraft with 34 full-flat bed seats in BusinessElite, 32 seats in Economy Comfort and 168 Economy class seats.
