Airport Authority mulls third-runway bonds
The Standard Excerpt
Wednesday, January 06, 2016

Airport Authority Hong Kong said it is considering issuing bonds via the Mandatory Provident Scheme to fund its HK$141-billion third-runway project.
The notes would be expected to yield about 5 percent a year, beating the average return of the MPF.

AAHK chairman Fred Lam Tin-fuk warned a construction delay on the runway project, which is now facing more than one judicial review, could add costs of as much as HK$7 billion a year.

The suggestion was raised by lawmaker Wu Chi-wai from the Democratic Party at a Legislative Council meeting yesterday. He said the estimated borrowing costs at about five percent a year would be a good investment option for employees. Lam said AA can study its feasibility.

MPF funds have returned an average annualized 3.4 percent in the past 15 years, and 2.1 percent in the past three years. The bonds could have an eight- year term covering the construction period starting at the earliest this year.

The authority earlier said it would raise HK$69 billion from borrowings such as long-tenor bonds, retail bonds, Islamic bonds and commercial bank loans.

Virgin Atlantic agrees to talks with HK union amid labor dispute
6 January 2016
Hong Kong Economic Journal Excerpt

Virgin Atlantic Airways officials are preparing to hold discussions with representatives of a Hong Kong flight attendants union following a row over some laid-off cabin crew.

Talks will begin Wednesday evening, with the Labour Department playing a mediating role.

The move comes after some Virgin Atlantic crew staged a wildcat strike at the airport on Monday, forcing a delay in a flight bound for London.

Staff was aggrieved as the management had refused to hold talks after retrenching 51 Hong Kong-based crew members last November.

The carrier is accused of not compensating the affected employees properly.

Four cabin crew members staged a wildcat strike late Monday night, a move which forced the management back to the negotiation table, Sing Tao Daily reported.

Flight VS207 from Hong Kong to London was scheduled to depart at 11:55 pm Monday, when four of its 11 cabin crew members staged a strike.

Mainlander jailed for flight pregnancy ploy
The Standard Excerpt
Thursday, January 07, 2016

A pregnant mainlander was sentenced to six months in jail yesterday for staying in the airport's restricted area without a permit.

Xie Miaoling, 26, had arrived from an overseas trip on July 14 and was due to board a flight to Guangzhou at 8.20pm that day.

However, she neither boarded the flight or arranged for any other flight out of Hong Kong, staying in the restricted area until July 21, when she started to have labor pains and asked to be taken to hospital.

In mitigation, Xie said she did not board the aircraft because she was feeling unwell.

The magistrate was not convinced, saying Xie deliberately remained at the airport as she wanted to give birth in Hong Kong.

Xie, who was bailed, pleaded guilty to one count of remaining in a restricted area without a permit when she appeared in a Tsuen Wan Magistrates' Court.

The court was told Xie remained in the restricted area of Hong Kong International Airport after she arrived.

She neither approached airline staff to arrange another flight ticket after missing her flight, nor ask airport staff for assistance.

On July 21, Xie started to have labor pains and called for medical help.

Lawmaker Leung Ka-lau said such behavior was dangerous as the mother-to-be did not have any body checks before giving birth.

Globetrotting dreams have to wait for HK's home-built airplane
8 January 2016
Hong Kong Economic Journal Excerpt

A Hong Kong pilot is eager to take the city's first home-built airplane around the world, but he may have to work hard and wait a long time before his dream can come true.

The single-engine, two-seater RV-8, assembled by Cathay Pacific Airways captain Hank Cheng, conducted a test flight in November at the Chek Lap Kok Airport, flying for around 15 minutes before making a successful landing.

That came after the Civil Aviation Department (CAD) gave its unexpected approval for the test flight in 2013.

But the department stressed that its approval was just for last year's test flight, and the airplane needs up to 25 hours of test flights before it can consider giving its approval for flight to other countries, Metro Daily reported on Friday.

It noted that Hong Kong lacks a suitable place for the assembled plane to take off and land.

The airplane can now only apply for a permit to fly, which allows it to be in the air within the city, but it needs an airworthiness certificate in order to fly to other countries, the CAD said.

An airplane must complete multiple test flights before it can be awarded an airworthiness certificate, it added.

Cheng's team said they can complete the required test flights without disrupting operations at the airport because a take-off or landing takes only one to two minutes.

Such time slots are available everyday at the airport for the test flights, the team said.

Former CAD head Albert Lam Kwong-yu said there is a bigger chance for the team to conduct test flights at the Shek Kong Airfield in the New Territories, noting that it is quite difficult for Chek Lap Kok Airport to accommodate small planes.

Protesters in noisy landing
The Standard Excerpt
Tuesday, January 12, 2016

Twenty Ma Wan residents, in pajamas and sporting made-up eyebags, showed up at a Town Planning Board meeting yesterday to oppose the third airport runway plan.

They said they were annoyed by the noise of aircraft flying overhead and criticized the government and Airport Authority for ignoring their complaints.

In the lobby, the group played a short drama of scenes of residents sleepless in Ma Wan and the noise they have to endure before entering the public hearing at 8.45am at the board's headquarters in North Point..

Every five minutes of the hearing, the protesters made aircraft noises.

Tsuen Wan district councillor for the Ma Wan constituency Roy Tam Hoi-pong, who led the protest, said: "Ma Wan has been affected by the noise pollution from the airport and residents have been complaining and annoyed every second.

"The Airport Authority keeps promoting the third runway, saying that there'll be fewer airplanes crossing over Man Wan if the project is completed," Tam said.

"But the former director of civil aviation, Albert Lam Kwong-yu, has said the problem could not be solved unless cross-border airspace allows more airplanes flying to the south."

However, he said, it was almost impossible for a more open cross-border airspace.

South African airline probes in-flight thefts
16 January 2016
Agence France Presse Excerpt

South African Airways said Friday it was investigating the involvement of a syndicate in thefts from sleeping passengers aboard international flights, and has already blacklisted one passenger.

The national carrier's statement came after a passenger reported that a fellow traveller had stolen jewellery and about $1,800 dollars in foreign currency from his luggage in the overhead locker on a flight from Johannesburg to Hong Kong.

"We are now aware of three incidents of suspected pilferage and theft on board our aircraft that occurred within three weeks of each other on route between Johannesburg and Hong Kong," SAA spokesman Tlali Tlali said in an email to AFP.

"The incidents occurred within a short space of time on one route to give rise to suspicion that a syndicate could be involved."

Passenger Warren Becker described in an email to Traveller24 his experience on board a flight from Johannesburg to Hong Kong.

"I had just woken up from a sleep when a passenger seated a few rows behind me advised me to check my bag, as she had seen some other passengers take bags from the overhead lockers and were rummaging around in them near the bathrooms," he wrote.

Becker said he alerted flight attendants, one of whom told him that this kind of theft had happened before "and there was some kind of 'syndicate' operating on SAA planes and that 'I had a right to know about this'".

Local media said the man suspected of going through Becker's baggage, as well one of his supposed accomplices, were searched by Hong Kong police officers, but the money was not found on them.

Hong Kong and Taiwan: The ties that bind us
21 January 2016
Hong Kong Economic Journal Excerpt

Misery loves company. Two people living under bridled circumstances usually develop a unique brotherhood.

We are talking about bosom pals Hong Kong and Taiwan. And the domineering Beijing, acting like the villain, is bringing Hong Kong even closer to the island, politically and ideologically.

What Hong Kong has been put through after the 1997 reunification serves as a warning to Taiwan on the prospects of its own relationship with China.

One telling indication is that the island, the only Chinese democracy, has become a top destination of Hongkongers seeking to migrate to a freer environment.

Conversely, Hong Kong, with its Cantopop tunes, movies, metropolitan status and higher career remuneration, appeals to Taiwanese as well. The mutual affection is cementing the shared bond of the two places in culture, language and even lineage.

Hong Kong has been drawing the island’s creme de la creme, either offspring of top leaders or financial or cultural elites.

Taiwan's President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) was born in Hong Kong’s Kwong Wah Hospital. Ma’s elder daughter Lesley Ma Wei-chung (馬唯中) is the curator of Museum Plus at the West Kowloon Cultural District. Vice President Wu Den-yih’s (吳敦義) youngest son graduated from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and now works at Deutsche Bank’s office in the city.

City University president Kuo Way (郭位) and Secretary for Innovation and Technology Nicholas Yang Wei-hsiung (楊偉雄) are also from the island. Famed Taiwanese essayist and cultural critic Lung Ying-tai (龍應台), the island's first minister of culture, studied and lived in Hong Kong for almost a decade.

Accumulatively, around 10,000 Taiwanese entered Hong Kong for employment or higher education in the past three years, according to data from the Immigration Department.

Another evidence of the close-knit bond is the record-setting air traffic between the two places. Global travel transactions processor Amadeus ranks the route between Hong Kong and Taoyuan Airport, Taipei’s major aviation gateway, the world’s busiest international air route by passenger traffic: 5.1 million flew between Hong Kong and Taipei in 2014.

The route is a cash cow for both Cathay Pacific and China Airlines, Taiwan’s flag carrier, yet not so many may remember that the latter was forced to change its corporate identity before 1997, in particular its aircraft livery and logo, to the current "plum blossom" one, after Beijing forbade aircraft bearing the Republic of China flag and emblem from entering the new special administrative region.

End of flights fuel charge just the ticket
21 January 2016
The Standard Excerpt

The global slide in oil prices has finally led to the fuel surcharge for passengers leaving Hong Kong being scrapped from February 1, which could spell cheaper air tickets.

But those who have already bought tickets for next month's Lunar New Year holiday will miss out on the relief.

The Civil Aviation Department announced yesterday that aviation fuel prices have fallen and stabilized, so "the levying of passenger fuel surcharge is not warranted.''

The passenger fuel surcharge was introduced in 2000 to allow airlines to partially recover the increase in operational costs due to fluctuations in fuel prices.

Cathay Pacific charges a HK$109 fuel surcharge for long-haul flights from Hong Kong to North and South America, Europe, Africa, Middle East and Indian subcontinent, while short-haul flights to other Asian locations is HK$24.

The airline ruled out refunds for those who bought their tickets before the suspension but fly after February 1.

Deputy director-general of civil aviation Simon Li Tin-chui said Japan Airlines stopped applying the surcharge late last year.

James Lam Fong-tat, 23, who travels to Taiwan, Japan and Southeast Asian countries monthly, said the surcharge removal would not encourage him to fly more. ``There's just a HK$24 difference for short-haul flights, which is not a big deal,'' he said.

South China Morning Post Excerpt
Alarm bell sounded over travel industry, says Hong Kong Consumer Council, amid rise in complaints over budget airlines
Complainants angry over inclusion of extras like insurance and meals in the price of cheap airline tickets
2 February 2016

The Consumer Council has warned that an alarm bell for the tourism industry has been sounded, as the number of travel complaints rose 41 per cent.

Budget airlines were seen as one of the main factors leading to more complaints. Gripes about cheap airlines rose 57 per cent to 1,197 cases last year compared with 2014.

Total travel-related complaints increased from 1,879 in 2014 to 2,642 last year, making them the second most reported category after telecommunications, which stayed top for the 16th consecutive year.

Among travel complaints, more than 70 per cent were related to air tickets and airline services.

One example of complaints about budget airlines were unclear instructions over charges for separate service items, said council chief executive Gilly Wong Fung-han.

“Consumers have to pay separately for luggage weight, seat choices or food on board. This can lead to price disparities when payment is made,” she said.

Wong said in some cases travel insurance and food are included by default when consumers purchase air tickets, even though purchasers did not intend to accept the services.

Another problem area was inflexibility in changing flights. “When the outbreak of Middle East respiratory syndrome was reported in South Korea last year, many customers hoped to switch destinations, but their requests were either rejected or they had to pay a big handling fee,” said Wong.
