Four runways option cheaper than Airport Authority’s proposal
8 September 2014
South China Morning Post

Many have written on the pros and cons of a third runway at Chek Lap Kok.

Surprisingly fewer have inquired into the reason for its staggering cost, currently in the region of HK$130 billion.

Too often, Hong Kong adopts the most expensive option when embarking on its capital projects. While we are fortunate in having plenty in our coffers to enable us to do this, there are still many social areas where we are sadly lacking and where funds freed up from capital expenditure might be better employed.

One of the more imaginative proposals advanced for a third runway at London Heathrow was to lengthen one of its two existing runways so that the original single runway could then be operated as two in line. The plan was abandoned, apparently not on operational grounds, but because of encroachment into occupied private land.

A similar proposal could be adopted at Hong Kong airport.

For the north runway, 2,000 metres would be added to the existing runway at both ends, thereby providing in line two runways each of 3,800 metres. A fourth runway of 3,800 metres could be added to the south end of the south runway.

It is surprising how little visual or physical impact the implementation of this proposal would have on the existing footprint of the airport. This is primarily because the current taxiways can work for both existing and future runways.

While there are significant cost savings to be gained through adopting this approach, there are also substantial environmental advantages through avoiding further encroachment west into the channel.

Chek Lap Kok currently has two runways; each is 3,800 metres long. The length of the former runway at Kai Tak was 3,390 metres. The length of one of Shenzhen’s two runways is 3,400 metres.

The cost of this alternative could be reduced further if the lengths of all the runways, both new and existing, was reduced to 3,400 metres.

I challenge the Airport Authority to come up with any operational reasons that would prevent this proposal from being seriously considered as a more practical and cheaper alternative to what is currently being proposed.

Passenger Traffic and Flight Movements Set Monthly Record in August
Press Release

HONG KONG, 14 September 2014 – Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) continued to see upswings in all three traffic categories. Fuelled by burgeoning demand in the summer peak season, passenger throughput in August rose by 3.3% year on year to 5.8 million, beating the previous record set in the same month last year. Flight movements recorded a 4.0% increase over last August to 33,700, achieving a new monthly high for the second month in a row. Cargo throughput also saw a remarkable growth of 8.8% to 366,000 tonnes.

The growth in passenger traffic in August was mainly driven by a 6% year-on-year growth in transfer/transit traffic and a 5% growth in Hong Kong resident traffic. Passenger traffic to/from North Asia and North America recorded the most significant increases.

The growth in cargo throughput last month was driven mainly by transshipments, which were up 22% from a year ago. During the month, cargo throughput to/from Southeast Asia and Mainland China improved most significantly compared to other key regions.

C K Ng, Acting Chief Executive Officer of Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA), said, “It is encouraging to see that HKIA has once again achieved new traffic records this month. We anticipate air traffic at HKIA to continue its growth trend during the remainder of the year in view of the upcoming travel peaks of the National Day golden week and Christmas.

"We are also pleased to report that HKIA has been honoured as the World’s Best Airport in Smart Travel Asia’s 2014 Best in Travel Poll. Readers of the online publication, mainly business travellers, were particularly impressed by HKIA’s efficiency. In addition, the AA has also been awarded the ‘Energy Saving Award of Excellence’ in CLP Power Hong Kong’s GREENPLUS Recognition Award Programme for optimising energy use. Despite the operational challenges arising from busier traffic at HKIA, we will continue to put forth our utmost effort in delivering the highest levels of service and realising our commitment to become the world’s greenest airport,” Mr Ng added.

Over the first eight months of this year, HKIA handled 42.2 million passenger trips, 2.8 million tonnes of cargo and 258,105 flight movements, registering respective growth of 5.5%, 6.9% and 5.2% compared to the same period last year.

On a 12-month rolling basis, passenger traffic climbed 6.0% to 62.1 million while cargo volume increased by 5.7% to 4.3 million tonnes. Flight movements also recorded 5.6% year-on-year growth to 384,935.

When is this opening? I was in Hong Kong last month but it was night time both when I flew in and flew out, so I didn't get a good look at it.

I hope it will have a Starbucks.

HK spells out status rules for airlines
20 October 2014
South China Morning Post Excerpt

Budget carrier Jetstar may soon know outcome of licence application after government cites factors that will be considered for designation

The government has finally given a clearer definition of what it means to be a “Hong Kong carrier”, which may put an end to proposed budget carrier Jetstar Hong Kong’s two-year wait for approval owing to objections on those grounds.

The lack of a clear framework to determine the seemingly simple question of whether a carrier is a Hong Kong one or not has been at the crux of a prolonged debate over the legality of Jetstar, originally a joint venture between China Eastern Airlines Corp and Australia’s Qantas Airways before Shun Tak Holdings became an equal shareholder in June last year.

The Basic Law requires airlines that want to establish in Hong Kong to prove they have their “principal place of business” in the city but does not elaborate on the criteria.

The Transport and Housing Bureau, which is in charge of designating the local carrier status, wrote in an emailed response to the South China Morning Post’s inquiry that a 10-month review completed in April had “fine-tuned” the framework of designation by spelling out the factors it takes into account, which now also include “public interests”.

“Factors such as ultimate management and control of the business, the relationship between the applicant and other foreign airlines, the place where the major operations of the airlines’ business is conducted would be relevant. It has also been stipulated clearly in the revised guidelines that public interests will be taken into account when considering whether an airline should be designated,” the statement said.

It added that airlines already designated also had to demonstrate their compliance with the requirement on a continuing basis.

*********************************

Jetstar Hong Kong has made a series of attempts to strengthen its local leadership and image.

Pansy Ho Chiu-king, Shun Tak’s managing director and Stanley Ho Hung-sun’s daughter, was made chairman in August last year and Shun Tak’s voting rights have been increased to 51 per cent to be able to appoint four out of seven board members, a change that took place in January but was only disclosed to the Hong Kong stock exchange by Shun Tak last month.

Cebu Pacific, PAL studying new HK seat capacities
17 October 2014
BusinessWorld Excerpt

CEBU PACIFIC Air is studying how much of the 15,000 new seat capacity it plans to apply for on the Hong Kong route, following the successful conclusion of air talks between the Philippines and Hong Kong, a senior official said.

"We will definitely be seeking more allocations," Cebu Air, Inc. Vice- President for Corporate Affairs Juan Lorenzo T. Tanada said in a text message on Thursday.

Mr. Tanada, however, declined to disclose how much of the additional 15,000 weekly seats will be sought, saying that "Cebu Pacific will make an announcement once it has filed a request with the CAB (Civil Aeronautics Board)."

Cebu Pacific said it intends to explore the market for Hong Kong as a destination in itself.

The Oct. 14-15 negotiations in Pasay City doubled the weekly passenger capacity of airlines flying between both destinations to 30,000 weekly seats from the previous 15,000, CAB said on Thursday.

Philippine Airlines, Inc. (PAL), for its part, said that it is studying how to respond to the new air agreement.

"We are still studying it. We will make an announcement soon," PAL Spokesperson Cielo C. Villaluna said via phone on Thursday.

In July, PAL President and Chief Operating Officer Ramon S. Ang said: "We can't ask for more seat entitlements (for destinations) like Hong Kong, as we have enough."

Data from the Department of Tourism showed that visitor numbers from Hong Kong fell 12.4% in the first seven months of the year to 67,034 from 76,555 a year earlier. The Philippines is targeting 5.4 million international tourist arrivals this year.

Manila, HK agree to double passenger capacities of airlines
16 October 2014
BusinessWorld Excerpt

THE PHILIPPINES sealed a new air service agreement with Hong Kong that doubled the weekly passenger capacity of airlines flying between both destinations.

From the previous 15,000 seats per week for flights to Hong Kong from Manila, the memorandum of understanding on air services have "expanded the capacity between the two countries to 30,000," Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) Executive Director Carmelo L. Arcilla said in a text message on Thursday.

"We also agreed on unlimited capacity in all international airports in the Philippines outside Manila, in accordance with executive order 29," Mr. Arcilla added.

The previous air service agreement signed by the Philippines and Hong Kong in 2008 only allowed local carriers to fill up to 15,000 seats per week for flights to Hong Kong from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport; up to 6,300-weekly seats for Clark to Hong Kong flights; and up to 2,500 seats per week from Cebu and other airports outside of Manila.

"It is hoped that the new agreement will usher in a new era of growth in the bilateral aviation relationship between the Philippines and Hong Kong, especially that the irritants that stood in the way if growth have simmered down," Mr. Arcilla added.

Cebu Air, Inc. Long-Haul Division Head Alejandro B. Reyes in August said via text: "We asked the CAB to prioritize air talks in Malaysia and Hong Kong; we feel there's really a lot of potential there, especially in Hong Kong."

Air Traffic at HKIA Continues to Rise in September
Press Release Excerpt

(HONG KONG, 19 October 2014) – Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) recorded growth in all three traffic categories in September. Monthly passenger figures climbed 4.8% from the previous year to 5 million, while cargo volume registered 5.2% year-on-year growth to 364,000 tonnes. Flight movements also rose by 5.1% to 31,995 in the same period.

The growth in passenger traffic in September was mainly driven by an 8% year-on-year growth in Hong Kong resident traffic. Passenger traffic to/from North Asia and North America recorded the most significant increases.

The growth in cargo throughput last month was driven mainly by transshipments, which were up 18% from a year ago. During the month, cargo throughput to/from Southeast Asia and North America increased most significantly compared to other key regions.
