Jetstar chief finds patience a virtue in HK
12 June 2015
The Australian Excerpt

Jetstar boss Jayne Hrdlicka says the airline has learned the importance of patience in Hong Kong, admitting the airline’s *initial *expectations “were not lined up with reality’’.

But she said Qantas and fellow shareholders China Eastern and Hong Kong’s Shun Tak Holdings remained confident the venture would take off.

“We’ve learned the importance of patience and not under*estimating carefully, thoughtfully working through the process with the government,’’ she said at the sidelines of the International Air Transport Association conference in Miami.

“Our expectations were not lined up with the reality of the way this government’s making decisions in Hong Kong, and we’re perfectly comfortable with that.

“We’ve got two shareholders who have more experience with being patient and long-minded that we do, and we’re learning through that process.

“The opportunity is no less in Hong Kong than it was when we first embarked on the joint venture. In fact, in some ways it’s more significant now the third runway’s been committed to.

“That decision was a big marker in our shareholders’ eyes for the future because Hong Kong needs the growth.’’ Jetstar Hong Kong was launched in March 2012, with expectations it would get up and running relatively quickly.

But it soon ran into problems with Hong Kong’s regulatory *regime and opposition by incumbent Cathay Pacific.

Shun Tak, run by Hong Kong businesswoman Pansy Ho, was brought in to help the proposed airline get past objections it would be run from overseas.

Shun Tak has a 33 per cent financial stake in Jetstar Hong Kong but controls 51 per cent of the voting rights.

Press Release Excerpt
Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, today celebrated the start of its daily service to one of Asia’s leading business and leisure destinations, Hong Kong.



To mark the increased frequency, the carrier’s flight to Hong Kong International Airport was welcomed with a traditional water cannon salute this morning, followed by a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by senior officials from Etihad Airways and Airport Authority Hong Kong.

Guests onboard the flight were presented with commemorative certificates in English and Cantonese, featuring the emblem of Hong Kong, the bauhinia flower.

James Hogan, Etihad Airways’ President and Chief Executive Officer, said: “Demand for travel into and out of Greater China has never been stronger. The introduction of a daily frequency to Hong Kong, along with our popular services to Beijing, Chengdu and Shanghai, will ensure that business and leisure travellers benefit from convenient timings and connections to suit their needs.

“Our guests travelling from Hong Kong and nearby southern China are now connected to more than 30 destinations across the Gulf region, Middle East, Africa, Europe and North America over Abu Dhabi. In addition, we offer guests travelling to Hong Kong onward connections to a number of destinations across Asia through our codeshare partnerships.”

Etihad Airways’ daily Hong Kong flights are operated using a two-class Airbus A330 aircraft, offering a total of 3,620 seats per week between Hong Kong and Abu Dhabi.

Virgin fleet upgrade key to profit growth
18 June 2015
South China Morning Post Excerpt

Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner to ply its London-Hong Kong route from next month as part of £2b fleet upgrade aimed at sustaining profit growth

Virgin Atlantic will deploy its new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner for the London-Hong Kong route from next month, as part of a £2 billion (HK$24 billion) airline-wide fleet upgrade that chief executive Craig Kreeger hopes will raise profitability.

Kreeger, who has just brought the airline back into the black for the first time in three years, told the South China Morning Post that Hong Kong and Shanghai, Virgin’s only destinations in North Asia after it cut Tokyo, are critical for it to grow outside its core transatlantic business.

“Our expectation is that within a four-year period, we will be earning more than the company’s best year ever,” Kreeger said, referring to 1999, when Virgin made £99 million.

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

Replacing the older but bigger A340 on its Hong Kong and Shanghai services with the new B787 will also mean a 16 per cent reduction in seat numbers.

Kreeger denied Virgin Atlantic is moving away from the Pacific to focus on the Atlantic, though he said it had no plans to add capacity in Asia at this time.

Ditched airport plan ‘could have eased chaos’
25 June 2015
South China Morning Post Excerpt

Hundreds of planes were left queuing for hours when Chek Lap Kok airport ran out of parking stands last month – and at least one vocal critic has said it could have been avoided if the Airport Authority had followed an earlier development plan.

Torrential rain, lightning and mainland airspace restrictions led to a chaotic 17 hours from May 23 into the following day. Arriving passengers had to wait on planes and others were stranded in the terminal building.

Lam Chiu-ying, convenor of the People’s Aviation Watch concern group, said if the authority had followed through on its plan to build an X-shaped concourse building with 49 additional parking stands in an area between the two runways by 2010, it would have allowed passengers to leave their planes, rather than sit on board for hours.

“Passengers could at least have entered the terminal first. Waiting in the aircraft is so stressful,” he said. The authority should have been prepared for severe weather as the airport was hit by thunderstorms an average of 38 days a year, said the former Observatory director.

The authority’s master plan 2020, published in 2001, called for “an elongated ‘X’ shape satellite concourse and aircraft parking configuration to be developed in the midfield area”. It said the additional stands would be required in the second part of the last decade if planning and service targets were to be met.

But the plan to erect the massive building was later ditched and was no longer mentioned in the updated master plan covering the airport until 2025, which was published in 2006.

In 2011, the authority opted for a smaller, HK$9 billion I-shaped concourse with 19 parking stands. Under construction and expected to open at the end of the year, it will bring the total number of parking stands to 78.

Jetstar refused HK license
The Standard Excerpt
Friday, June 26, 2015



Jetstar Hong Kong's operating license application has been rejected by the Air Transport Licensing Authority, which ruled the budget carrier violates the Basic Law as it does not have its principal place of business in the SAR.
The ruling echoes the oppostion of local flagship Cathay Pacific Airways (0293) and Hong Kong Airlines.

"Jetstar Hong Kong cannot make its decision independently from that of the two foreign shareholders," said the authority in a 150-page written decision released yesterday.

The airline's ownership is split equally between local conglomerate Shun Tak Holdings (0242), Australia's Qantas Airways - the Jetstar Group's parent - and Shanghai-based China Eastern Airlines (0670).

Jetstar Hong Kong chief executive Edward Lai Chung-wai said in a statement that the firm is "extremely disappointed" and will take time to review and consider the next steps.

The authority noted that "even [if] there is no dispute that the day-to-day management of Jetstar Hong Kong would be conducted in Hong Kong and managed by the Jetstar Hong Kong CEO in Hong Kong that is not sufficient to establish and meet any principal place of business criteria." In determining whether the principal place of business is in Hong Kong, "its activities must not be subject to the control of senior management, shareholders or related parties located elsewhere."

One point relating to Jetstar Hong Kong is that all network decisions are subject to a committee, which has two representatives from China Eastern Airlines, one from Jetstar Group and one from Jetstar Hong Kong, the authority said.

It added that Jetstar Hong Kong would "surrender the right to determine its own network, fare structures and other flight- related matters to the Jetstar Group under the business service agreement."

Jetstar Hong Kong was set up in March 2012 with the aim of providing low-fare short-haul flights in Asia. It filed a license application in June 2013.

Is Jetstar HK's rejection a blow to Hong Kong tourism?
3 July 2015
TTG Asia Excerpt

HONG KONG'S tourism sector and status as a travel hub would have benefited from the addition of Jetstar Hong Kong, said industry watchers after the Air Transport Licensing Authority's (ATLA) rejected the company's application to operate scheduled flights last week. Speaking to TTG Asia e-Daily, Will Horton, analyst at CAPA - Centre for Aviation, said: "Hubs benefit from competition as that's what you see from Singapore to Bangkok to Tokyo. In fact, point-to-point full-service demand in Hong Kong is reaching saturation and to stimulate travel you need a structurally different airline - such as an LCC." Travel agency Arrow Travel's managing director Tommy Tam, pointed out that LCC penetration in Hong Kong remains under 10 per cent so there is still room to grow. "The rejection may result in limited competition to existing players and less choice for consumers.

If Jetstar clinched the licence, I reckon it would have opened up routes to Australia and other second and tertiary cities within the region," he said. Horton added: "Hong Kong needs to shift its visitor demographics. Not all source markets want to go to shopping malls, which are at saturation, provoking public angst. Some source markets prefer to explore the New Territories and outer islands, which will inject benefits to the local economy rather than designer boutiques. "But to get those visitors Hong Kong needs more airline competition. Rejecting Jetstar wasn't simply refusing a licence - it was a decision that will negatively shape Hong Kong for years." Hong Kong carriers such as Cathay Pacific Airways, Hong Kong Airlines and HK Express had expressed vehement objection to Jetstar Hong Kong from the outset, though they have denied being anti-competition.

United action at pay deal delay
17 July 2015
The Standard Excerpt



More than 40 staff from different carriers united in solidarity at Chek Lap Kok airport yesterday to demand better contract terms for United Airlines flight attendants. The protesters included pilots from Dragonair and Federal Express, along with United Airlines flight attendants.

The workers " some wearing yellow shirts and others their uniforms " protested outside Terminal One from 8am.

They said they joined the action before or after their shifts.

They took banners and mounted a silent protest in front of United Airlines' counters from 9am for about 45 minutes.

The banners had slogans that read ``Friendly isn't free,'' ``Delay, delay, delay, not okay,'' and ``Record profit$$$. It's our turn.''

The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA conducted the ``day of action'' at 20 airports worldwide calling on United Airlines to negotiate a fair contract for flight attendants.

The union and Chicago-based United Airlines have been locked in bitter contract negotiations for the past three years. Local association president Narayanan Nakulan said United Airlines wants to ``turn back the clock,'' criticizing it for offering the staff the lowest-paying contract possible.

He also claimed that the company has been digging in its heels since April, making the negotiations stagnant by not proposing any new options.

``The company has been blaming our negotiators ... [for] not being very forthcoming in terms of looking at the financial model [of the company],'' Nakulan said.

HKIA Reports Steady Traffic Growth in First Half of 2015
Press Release Excerpt

(HONG KONG, 19 July 2015) – Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) recorded steady growth in all three traffic categories during the first half of 2015. From January to June this year, passenger throughput and flight movements rose by 9.1% and 4.4% to 33.6 million and 199,620 respectively, compared to the same period last year. Cargo traffic increased slightly by 0.6% to 2.1 million tonnes.

Monthly passenger traffic and flight movements for June registered year-on-year growth of 7.1% and 3.5% to 5.6 million and 32,870 respectively. In June, cargo volume decreased by 3.5% to 349,000 tonnes.

The growth in passenger traffic in June was mainly driven by transfer/transit traffic and Hong Kong resident traffic, which experienced 13% and 12% growth respectively over the same month last year. Passenger traffic to / from Southeast Asia and Japan recorded the most significant increases.

The decline in cargo throughput last month was mainly attributed to a 5% year-on-year drop in transshipments and a 4% decrease in exports. Imports registered 1% growth compared to the same month last year. Traffic to / from Southeast Asia, Mainland China and Europe underperformed other regions during the month. Cargo traffic was suppressed by the Eurozone weak economy and a slowdown in Asia Pacific imports and exports.

In the first half of 2015, passenger traffic was driven by continued growth of transfer/transit traffic and Hong Kong resident traffic, while cargo throughput was affected by a drop in exports. Passenger traffic and aircraft movements are expected to grow steadily in the second

"But to get those visitors Hong Kong needs more airline competition. Rejecting Jetstar wasn't simply refusing a licence - it was a decision that will negatively shape Hong Kong for years." Hong Kong carriers such as Cathay Pacific Airways, Hong Kong Airlines and HK Express had expressed vehement objection to Jetstar Hong Kong from the outset, though they have denied being anti-competition.
If the Australians want to have access to the HK Market in general (and to increase visitor numbers to HK and additional services from Australia to HK) then I suggest both Government should agree an Open Skies Deal between HK and Australia.

Likewise there is nothing stopping Jetstar from Australia (Cities such as Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Gold Coast, Perth and Cairns) itself (Currently it only flies from Singapore, Tokyo and Osaka) and the application it made to the relevant authorities in relation to Jetstar HK did not say anything about wanting to fly from Australia to HK...
