Airport boost with more free phone chargers
The Standard Excerpt
Thursday, October 23, 2014

More than 400 new free charging points for small electrical appliances such as mobile phones and tablets will be available at Hong Kong International Airport early next year.

Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development Gregory So Kam- leung made the announcement in a written reply to a question raised in the Legislative Council about the lack of charging points in public places and tourist spots.

"Hong Kong International Airport plans to provide more than 400 new charging points at the terminal and the SkyPier, the work on which is expected to be completed in early 2015," he wrote. This will add to the 256 already in use at Chek Lap Kok.

Jetstar HK case for approval ‘solid’
The Australian Excerpt
24 October 2014

QANTAS expects a hearing by Hong Kong authorities early next year into its application to begin operating its stymied Jetstar HK joint venture.

Qantas (QAN) chief Alan Joyce was questioned by Senator Nick Xenophon at the airline’s annual meeting today on whether Qantas was paying money into what appeared to be “a stranded asset”.

Mr Joyce responded that the commitment so far had been limited to the $30 million originally provided for the Hong Kong start-up.

“We are not going above that,’’ he said. “That money hasn’t been used, the business is still functioning on that money along with the other two shareholders who put (in) their equivalent of that.’’

Jetstar HK, a joint venture with China Eastern and Shun Tak Holdings, has sold six of the nine aircraft it originally acquired for the start-up but has kept three for the approval process.

Cathay Pacific said this week it remained confident the Jetstar franchise would fail to fly and that authorities would accept the argument that it was effectively controlled from Australia.

But Mr Joyce said Jetstar HK chairman Pansy Ho, “one the most credible, biggest people in Hong Kong’’, was leading the approval process for traffic rights into the market.

“We’re expecting a hearing in the early new year and that process is then determined by the Hong Kong authorities,’’ Mr Joyce said.

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."
So, how would that deal look like if we have the following flight allocations between Manila and Hong Kong:

110 weekly flights at the moment, with:

- 47 combined weekly flights by Cathay Pacific and Dragonair (with only 1 of them operated by the latter)
- 35 weekly flights by Philippine Airlines
- 28 weekly flights by Cebu Pacific

With 30,000 seat allocations, it seems like the Manila-Hong Kong service could inch much closer to where the Taipei-Hong Kong service is right now, with over 260 weekly flights. The problem, though: how will that increase in seats impact any plans for European carriers to mount flights to the Philippines if it will rely on Hong Kong for such services? Not to mention, there is not much codesharing going on on Cathay Pacific or Philippine Airline flights with foreign carriers (e.g. AA, AY, BA, KL, LA, QF) so that oneworld can have a stronger presence in the Philippines. Currently, only CX and PR codeshare on its Hong Kong-Cebu service, and nothing else.

My understanding is that foreign carriers, such as BA, are not permitted to codeshare with non Philippine operators such as PAL or Cebu Pacific because they themselves do not fly to MNL. So, logically, whilst you would expect them to codeshare with CX, they are not permitted to do so. If true, and correct me if I am wrong, it looks like a form of protectionism for PAL.

But that would be a big disadvantage for Manila and the Philippines since many nations have adopted such third-party airline codesharing wherein even though an airline does not necessarily fly to their hubs (e.g. BA to Melbourne, Auckland, etc), it allows passengers riding on BA to accrue mileage with the help of CX since the latter operates such flights where BA currently does not at the moment (due to distance). It's like mounting an AA flight code on CX's flights to BKK, KUL, and SIN without any problems... maybe it's time to end the (over-)protectionist behavior at PAL (especially that magnate Lucio Tan has returned to the ownership helm) and allow such codeshares to be established in the Philippines.

European carriers have long given up on Manila as a standalone or a tag-on from HKG. It's a low-yield market for domestic workers so it doesn't make much sense to send a huge widebody over trying to fill up Y when the other airlines will undercut your fares.

I think the point that was being made was regarding codesharing. You are right, the likes of BA wouldn't make money in such a low yielding market by flying their own aircraft to MNL either direct or as a tag-on. However, there are many UK based companies doing business in the Philippines and if BA could codeshare with their OneWorld partner Cathay Pacific, then this could take some business away from EK or EY, for example.

Same concept - it's not a sufficient big market for European airlines to lobby the Philippine aviation authorities to change their rules.

Airport Authority Welcomes Granting of Environmental Permit for Three-Runway System
Press Release Excerpt
7 November 2014

Airport Authority Hong Kong (the AA) today said it welcomes the decision of the Director of Environmental Protection to approve the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) report and issue an Environmental Permit (EP) for the proposed expansion of Hong Kong International Airport into a three-runway system (3RS).

Fred Lam, Chief Executive Officer of the AA, said, “We are delighted to obtain the EP. It marks a major step in Hong Kong’s pursuit of strengthening its long-term competitiveness and leading aviation hub status.

"The AA is committed to carrying out all the mitigation measures proposed in the 3RS EIA report, and fully complying with all the conditions listed by the Environmental Protection Department in a highly prudent, transparent and professional manner,” added Mr Lam. “Our aim is to achieve a balance between economic development and conservation.

"Now that the EP has been granted, the AA will kick-start the marine park proposal by developing a management plan for a 2,400-hectare marine park, as committed to in the EIA report. This represents the largest of its kind in Hong Kong. We will also formulate and finance a detailed Marine Ecology Conservation Plan with support from relevant experts and stakeholder groups. This plan will outline our approach for the conservation of marine life, particularly the Chinese White Dolphins (CWDs) within Hong Kong and Pearl River Estuary waters.

"To further enhance early protection for CWDs, the AA will also devise a Marine Traffic Routes and Management Plan for high-speed ferries operating out of the SkyPier, to minimise the chance of disturbance in western waters. Some of these precautionary measures will be implemented even before we begin construction on the 3RS,” Mr Lam explained.

Cheung Kong in aviation lift-off
Bloomberg Excerpt
6 November 2014

Real estate giant hopes to cash in on boom in Asia's travel industry

Hong Kong billionaire Li Ka-shing's Cheung Kong Holdings Ltd has agreed to pay $1.89 billion to buy 35 planes from companies including General Electric Co's aviation services unit to enter the aircraft leasing market.

Cheung Kong will also form a 60-40 venture with Japan's MC Aviation Partners Inc to buy an additional 15 planes for $733.5 million, according to a filing to Hong Kong Stock Exchange on Tuesday.

Considered Asia's richest man, Li is entering the market as increasing urbanization and a growing middle class are fueling a surge in travel demand across the world's most populous continent.

Cheung Kong said in August it was seeking to buy planes from Terra Firma Capital Partners Ltd's Awas arm to quickly build a major presence in the business.

"The aircraft leasing business will generate long-term steady income for the group," Cheung Kong said in the filing. The purchases "will constitute a meaningful platform to further develop the aircraft ownership and leasing business for the group".

Cheung Kong is mainly a real estate investor and developer. Its unit Hutchison Whampoa Ltd has worldwide operations ranging from port operations to retailing, from energy to telecommunications.

The Hong Kong company said it will pay $132 million for its stake in the venture with MC Aviation. Through its unit Accipiter Holdings Ltd, Cheung Kong will buy 18 planes from subsidiaries of GE Capital Aviation Services Ltd for $714.8 million, according to the filing.

The 11 Airbus Group NV A320-200s, five Boeing Co 737-800s and two 737-900ERs have an average age of 3.1 years. Accipiter will buy an additional three 737-800s from GE affiliates for $101.2 million.

Cheung Kong has also agreed to buy 10 planes from Bank of China Ltd's BOC Aviation Pte in two purchases, of $213.3 million and $278.7 million, and will pay $584.2 million to Jackson Square Aviation LLC for 14 planes, according to the filing.

The planes being purchased are currently leased to airlines for an average six to nine years.

Continued Air Traffic Growth in October
Press Release Excerpt

(HONG KONG, 16 November 2014) – Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) achieved steady growth in all three traffic categories in October. Monthly passenger volume climbed significantly by 7.4% from the same month last year to 5.4 million, while cargo volume rose 4.3% to 383,000 tonnes. Flight movements also registered 5.5% year-on-year growth to 33,635.

The growth in October passenger traffic was driven by visitor and transfer/transit numbers, which were up 8% and 11% respectively, from a year ago. Passenger traffic to/from North Asia and Mainland China recorded the most significant increases.

The growth in cargo throughput last month was mainly driven by 15% year-on-year growth in transshipments. During the month, cargo throughput to/from North America and Southeast Asia increased most significantly compared to other key regions.

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

On a 12-month rolling basis, passenger volume rose by 5.8% from a year earlier to 62.7 million, while cargo volume rose 6% to 4.3 million tonnes. Flight movements also increased 5.5% year on year to 388,265.

Jetstar Hong Kong Sells Six Jets Amid Approval Delays
18 November 2014
Dow Jones Excerpt

Jetstar Hong Kong, the associate of Australian discount carrier Jetstar Airways, Tuesday said it has sold six of its nine passenger jets amid delays in getting approvals from Hong Kong authorities to begin flights.

The company didn't provide details of the customer for the six Airbus Group N.V. (EADSY) A320 planes. It said the remaining three planes will help the airline start services after regulatory approvals are in place.

"This has been an unfortunate but prudent business decision made by the Jetstar Hong Kong board as the regulatory approvals are taking longer than initially expected," the company said in emailed comments attributed to Edward Lau, chief executive of Jetstar Hong Kong.

Jetstar counts the cost of prolonged delay in Hong Kong take-off
Excerpt

SINGAPORE, Nov 18 (Reuters) - Jetstar Hong Kong has sold six of its nine new Airbus A320s and many of its pilots have either quit or been redeployed - all before the budget airline's first commercial flight.

Nearly 18 months after the low-cost carrier, backed by Australia's Qantas Airways and Shanghai-based China Eastern Airlines, lodged an application for a licence, Hong Kong authorities are still weighing its approval.

Budget airlines account for just 8 percent of the capacity out of Hong Kong, compared with 30 percent in Singapore and 50 percent in Kuala Lumpur and Jakarta, according to industry consultancy OAG.

The stalemate in Hong Kong illustrates the pitched battle between full-service carriers and their faster-growing budget rivals in Asia for a share of the rising demand for air travel.

Flag carrier Cathay Pacific, which along with its subsidiary Dragonair accounted for 47 percent of the seats out of Hong Kong in 2014, has been quietly pressing regulators on the importance of shielding the homegrown airline.

Sources close to Qantas believe that Cathay's opposition is the main reason behind the delay, and point out that even countries such as India, China and Japan - which are known for their red tape and protection of incumbent airlines - have approved applications from new budget airlines in a shorter time than that in recent years.

Other sources in Hong Kong, who are familiar with both Cathay Pacific and the government, could not say if the flag carrier was directly behind the delay. However, one source indicated that Cathay would do "everything it can" to stop Jetstar Hong Kong.

Cathay bristles at suggestions that it is against competition, pointing out that more than 100 airlines including 15 low-cost carriers operate out of Hong Kong's airport.

"We successfully compete for business in both Hong Kong and internationally each and every day," the airline told Reuters in a statement.

Central to the dispute is whether Jetstar Hong Kong is foreign-controlled and therefore ineligible to operate under Hong Kong law. Cathay argues that control over the budget carrier rests in Australia.

Jetstar disputes Cathay's assertion it is foreign controlled, arguing that its chairman, chief executive and majority shareholder are all from Hong Kong.

HKIA Named “Best Airport in China” for Eighth Time in Nine Years
Press Release Excerpt

(HONG KONG, 13 November 2014) – The outstanding services and facilities of Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) and unfailing efforts of the airport community have been repeatedly recognised by local and regional industry and the general public. HKIA was recently named “Best Airport in China” by travel magazine Business Traveller China, “Asia Pacific Airport of the Year – Industry Choice Award” by the air cargo industry publication Payload Asia, and won a "Hong Kong Star Brands Award 2014 – Enterprise" nominated by local organisations.

Vivian Cheung, Deputy Director, Airport Operations of Airport Authority Hong Kong said, “We are very pleased and honoured to have received these awards, which are a great recognition from both the industry and the public. They represent the collective effort and dedication of 65,000-plus airport staff working closely together to provide service excellence. With a number of medium- and long-term development plans in the pipeline, we will continue enhancing our facilities and deepening the airport’s service culture to meet growing aviation demand.”

HKIA clinched the “Best Airport in China” accolade from Business Traveller China for the eighth time in the past nine years. Readers participating in the publication’s annual online survey voted for their favorite airport, hospitality organisations and airlines that provided enjoyable and hassle-free experience during their journeys. Since the magazine launched its annual reader poll in 2005, HKIA took home the same award in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.

On the cargo front, HKIA was recognised as the “Asia Pacific Airport of the Year – Industry Choice Awards” at the Payload Awards 2014 which was organised by air cargo industry publication Payload Asia. Awardees were selected by an industry panel based on criteria including cargo growth and development strategy, operational performance, customer service, product innovation, competitive cost structures and services. This industry recognition has reaffirmed HKIA’s ongoing commitment to service excellence and to maintaining Hong Kong’s position as a leading international and regional aviation centre.
