The Standard Excerpt
Monday, May 11, 2015



Hong Kong International Airport's Terminal 2 which has been in operation for 13 years will be completely shut down for four years from 2019 as part of expansion work in preparation for the third runway.

The HK$2.8 billion Terminal 2 started operation in February 2002, serving 27 airlines.

An Airport Authority spokesman told Sing Tao Daily, sister paper of The Standard, that Terminal 2 is 90 percent full, with at least 80 shops and 20 restaurants. "It is nearly completely rented out."

But a source close to the authority said it will be "totally closed for expansion work for four years to carry out improvement work" if construction for the third runway starts as planned next year.

The expansion will include restructuring the main building of Terminal 2, and constructing two additional annex buildings.

According to the third runway system design announced earlier, Terminal 2 will be modified and expanded for providing a full-service processing terminal and construction of an associated road network.

The services will include handling arrivals, departures and transfers. And the two new annex buildings will be reserved for coach staging, car parking, loading and unloading bays, and a limousine lounge.
I think is more to add arriving facilities. The current T2 is only a departures terminal.

Bid to delay third runway voted down
The Standard Excerpt
Wednesday, December 02, 2015

A motion, urging the government to delay construction of the third runway, was defeated by 13 pro-establishment legislators.

Civic Party lawmaker Kwok Ka-ki moved the motion yesterday in the Three-Runway System Advisory Committee, citing as reasons labor shortages and insufficient raw materials.

But after a two-hour debate at the Legislative Council, only five pan- democrats, including Kwok, supported the motion.

He expressed fears about cost overruns, citing the funding woes of the Hong Kong-Shenzhen-Guangzhou Express Rail Link, while technical problems, such as a so-called "sky wall," remain unresolved.

"We don't have enough manpower and raw materials. We don't have any agreement [with the mainland] to resolve the sky wall. This is why we are in a hurry to sign contracts. We all know that once the airport signs the contracts, there's no way back," Kwok said.

Clarification on Estimated Construction Cost of Three-runway System
Press Release Excerpt

(HONG KONG, 2 December 2015) – Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA) would like to clarify media reports regarding the estimated construction cost of expanding Hong Kong International Airport into a Three-runway System (3RS), specifically the assertion in certain outlets that the project has seen a 60% cost increase compared with 2010 prices.

According to the “Hong Kong International Airport Master Plan 2030” released by the AA in 2011, the estimated cost of the 3RS was HK$86.2 billion in dollars of the fourth quarter of 2010. While it takes more than 10 years for the planning, design and construction of the 3RS project, there are changes in the inflation rate as well as labour and material costs that naturally occur during the course. As a result, it is necessary for AA to work according to money-of-the-day (MOD) prices that take these adjustments into account. This follows the same practice of Government capital works. After the calculations, the estimated construction cost for the 3RS was HK$136.2 billion in MOD prices.

The latest cost for the 3RS as estimated by the AA is HK$84.5 billion in 2010 dollars and HK$141.5 billion in MOD prices. This estimate takes into account further developments in the 3RS’s design and the completion of Environmental Impact Assessment, and it takes references to the latest price adjustment factor released by the Government on March 2014. (Note: The Government updates the price adjustment factor every six months, which will take reference on the data of the adjustment trend of the public sector building and construction output price, latest changes on salary levels of construction sector and price of construction materials, as well as the trend of global and local economic performances)

When examining the change in the estimated construction cost of the 3RS, it is more appropriate to compare the latest estimated MOD prices of HK$141.5 billion with the estimated MOD prices of HK$136.2 billion as published in the “Hong Kong International Airport Master Plan 2030” in 2011.

New runway gets $5b revolving credit
The Standard Excerpt
Tuesday, December 08, 2015

The Airport Authority yesterday signed a HK$5 billion revolving credit facility with 21 local and international banks to be used in construction of the third runway.

The banks include HSBC, Hang Seng, Standard Chartered, Bank of China, and the Australia and New Zealand Banking Group.

Most of the money will go toward design of the runway, geographical surveys and preparatory work, according to authority chairman Jack So Chak-kwong, who hopes the related construction work will be approved and started before the middle of next year.

"The success of this revolving credit facility will also lay a solid foundation for financing the three-runway system. Hong Kong International Airport beats at the heart of the economy, and its expansion into a (three- runway system) will bring tremendous social and economic benefits," So said at the signing ceremony with bank representatives.

Asked if costs will overrun the allocated budget as with several other infrastructure projects, So said work is yet to begin on the runway and therefore the question is premature.

Delay on delivery of planes to Sky Angkor
8 December 2015
Phnom Penh Post Excerpt

Sky Angkor Airlines said yesterday that a plan to lease two Sukhoi SuperJet 100 aircraft from a Russian airline has been postponed, as the company has to sort out regulatory issues such as which aviation authority would be responsible in the event of a mishap. Steve Kim, vice president of Sky Angkor Air (SAA), said the airline signed an agreement in late August with leasing company Ilyushin Finance & Co to wet-lease two aircraft from Russian airline Red Wings. However, the company has yet to test the two aircraft, which combined with the regulatory issues has pushed back the expected delivery date until next December. “Cambodia wants the authority to handle this issue and the Russians want to keep it under their authority,” he said. “We need more time to discuss and both sides understand the issue.” The Korean-Cambodian airline wants to lease new aircraft to supplement its route expansion, both for short distance domestic and international flights.

The airline, Kim said, will look to use the wet-leased aircraft to fly from Phnom Penh and Siem Reap to more destinations in China, South Korea, Hong Kong and Thailand.

United flying high on smooth takeoff
11 December 2015
China Daily Excerpt

United Airlines has its sights set on the dynamism of the HK and Chinese mainland markets, says the carrier's Greater China and Korea chief. Emma Dai reports.

'One of our strategic objectives for the next decade is to continue to invest in Hong Kong and the Chinese mainland. We are very bullish and optimistic about both markets," Walter Dias, managing director for Greater China and Korea at United Airlines Inc, told China Daily in an exclusive interview.

"Looking around, one of the most dynamic places worldwide is Asia, where China is the most dynamic market. We see a lot of growth opportunities ahead," Dias said.

Hong Kong SAR also has an important role to play, he added. "Historically, Hong Kong is a strategic gateway into the Chinese mainland and the third-largest market for United Airlines in Asia. We see its importance continue."

In a bid to provide better services to local clients - such as introducing Cantonese-speaking cabin crew, for instance - United has set its flight attendant base in Hong Kong, with nearly 300 staff, Dias said. The carrier's regional office is also based in the SAR.

According to Dias, United Airlines is the largest carrier between the US and the Asia Pacific in terms of frequency, with over 310 services per week, reaching out to 31 cities and 13 countries across the region.

It is also the largest carrier between the US and China in terms of seat capacity, operating 11 daily direct flights from Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong to various US cities.

Despite concerns over slowing economic growth on the Chinese mainland, Dias has firm confidence in future prospects. "I don't see the growth dynamic in China wavering despite what has been reported. Even 7 percent GDP (gross domestic product) growth still means a lot today, because the economy is so large now ," he said.

To grow the business, the carrier has been looking beyond top-tier cities as "core strategy" on the Chinese mainland. In June 2014, United Airlines launched thrice-weekly services between San Francisco and Chengdu, the capital city of Sichuan province and the gateway to Southwest China. The flight is the first-ever nonstop commercial operation to the US from a second-tier mainland city.

Extra 135 flights sure to spread Christmas cheer
The Standard Excerpt
Monday, December 14, 2015

A total of 135 extra flights will be put on for the holidays, as the airport lays out Christmas cheer for travelers.

The expected Christmas and New Year holiday travel peak comes on the heels of a sharp 8.8 percent year-on-year increase in passenger traffic to 5.6 million last month.

"As the year draws to an end, we expect to see a travel peak at Hong Kong International Airport during the Christmas and New Year holidays. Over the period, a total of 135 additional flights will be arranged by the airlines to cope with the surge in travel demand, with the most popular destinations being Taipei, Osaka and Sapporo," said Airport Authority deputy director of airport operations, Vivian Cheung Karfay .

She added there would be Christmas-themed activities and decorations at the airport.

Magicians from Hong Kong, South Korea and Taiwan will surprise passengers at the Meeters and Greeters Hall, while an instrumental flash mob performance will add to the festive spirit.

Passengers at the Departure Hall will also enjoy a cappella carol singing by students from the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts.

Meanwhile, the authority said the growth in passenger traffic last month was mainly driven by a 13 percent year-on-year growth in Hong Kong resident travel.

Transfer or transit traffic and visitor traffic grew by 8 percent and 6 percent respectively.

Hong Kong Economic Journal Excerpt
Airport runway project now seen with 8% internal rate of return

The planned third runway at Hong Kong’s airport is expected to yield an 8-percent internal rate of return (IRR), Airport Authority chief said, stressing that the project would be feasible.

Fred Lam Tin-fuk gave the new estimate as he unveiled a special study that was conducted with the assistance of The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corp.

The figure is far above the 3 percent IRR that had initially been projected in 2011, the Hong Kong Economic Journal reported.

The revised estimate has taken into account the proposed airport construction levy and improved financial performance of the airport operator over the last few years.

Lam was also quoted as saying that the construction cost will be HK$141.5 billion in total.
