Dead chicks in plane spark alert
The Standard Excerpt
Feb. 17, 2017

Hong Kong health authorities were trying to find out how three chicks avoided checks in a mainland airport before being found dead in the cargo hold of a Shenzhen Airlines flight at Hong Kong airport, sparking a bird flu scare.

However, tests on the three chicks proved negative for bird flu, the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department said yesterday.

The find came on the same day that a committee said quick tests will be introduced to seek the H7N9 bird flu virus in live poultry markets in Hong Kong amid the spread of the strain in the mainland.

The Hong Kong Airport Authority received a report from Shenzhen Airlines on Wednesday, saying that three dead chickens were discovered in the cargo hold of the Shenzhen Airlines flight ZH9091, from Jinjiang, Fujian.

The authority informed the Port Health Office of the Department of Health and the plane was sterilized.

The Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department sent the birds to Tai Lung Veterinary Laboratory in Sheung Shui for bird flu tests, which came back negative.

Steady Growth in HKIA Air Traffic Continues in January
Press Release Excerpt

(HONG KONG, 19 February 2017) – Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) achieved steady growth in all air traffic categories in the first month of 2017. The airport handled 6.2 million passengers in January, or 4.8% more than the same period last year, while flight movements increased by 0.3% year on year to 35,315 and cargo grew by 3.1% to 372,000 tonnes.

Passenger traffic growth was largely driven by the surge in Hong Kong resident travel during the Chinese New Year holidays, which saw a year-on-year rise of 24%. Passenger traffic to and from Japan, Europe and Southeast Asia registered the most significant increases.

Growth in cargo throughput was mainly due to an 8% increase in exports. Amongst key trading regions, traffic to and from Europe and North America showed the most significant increases.

Vivian Cheung, Deputy Director, Airport Operations of Airport Authority Hong Kong, remarked, “The airport community made an excellent concerted effort to maintain smooth operations at HKIA during the festive period. From 26 January to 1 February, HKIA handled an average of approximately 200,000 daily passengers and 1,115 daily flight movements.” Since the Chinese New Year period fell in February last year, a more meaningful comparison of the traffic performance could be made when the combined statistics for the first two months of 2017 are available.

South China Morning Post Excerpt
Aviation industry presses Hong Kong government to open heliport at former Kai Tak airport site
Administration to study demand for cross-border and domestic services to assess viability of helicopter flights to and from major Pearl River Delta cities
March 6, 2017

Aviation may return to Kai Tak – Hong Kong’s former international airport before it was moved to Chek Lap Kok off Lantau in 1998.

The government will study the issue as the aviation industry draws up a case to operate a heliport at the tip of the old runway next to the Cruise Terminal, the Post has learned.

Following the government’s budget boost for helicopter flights, the Transport and Housing Bureau will start a “comprehensive review” as soon as April on demand for cross-border and domestic services to assess the viability of helicopter flights to and from major Pearl River Delta cities.

The industry, which includes helicopters and business jets, has proposed to the government that the general aviation sector could manage Kai Tak heliport as a non-profit venture at no cost to the taxpayer.

Heliport flights could act as connecting flights to and from business jets waiting at airports across the Pearl River Delta.

“If we operate it, we could effectively subsidise the cost of it. We will facilitate everybody else at a commercially operated heliport. That is what happens at Battersea heliport in London,” explained HeliGroup director Gavin Neale, who added that re-opening Kai Tak for commercial flights would be a symbolic move.

The site for Kai Tak heliport is currently an 80,000 sq ft fenced-off barren area. The land has been zoned as a heliport for years. It has already passed an environmental impact assessment.

The proximity of the Cruise Terminal’s customs, immigration and quarantine facilities make it ready to handle cross-boundary flights.

Cargo Volume Records Robust Growth at HKIA in First Two Months of 2017
Press Release Excerpt

HONG KONG, 19 March 2017 – Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) experienced strong growth in cargo throughput in the first two months of the year, recording a 7.7% increase to 666,000 tonnes from the same period last year. Passenger volume also saw 1% growth to 11.7 million during the period, while flight movements dropped 1.9% to 66,550.

The combined robust growth in cargo throughput in the first two months of 2017 was mainly attributable to an 11% year-on-year increase in transshipments. Exports also recorded an 8% growth. Among the key trading regions, traffic to and from North America, Europe and Southeast Asia showed the most significant increases.

The combined growth of passenger volume in the first two months of 2017 was largely driven by Hong Kong residents’ travel, registering a 6% year-on-year growth. Traffic to and from Japan contributed the most to the surge in passenger traffic in the first two months.

Combining throughput figures for the first two months of 2017 cancels out the effect of the Chinese New Year falling into different months in 2016 and 2017.

In February, cargo volume enjoyed a sharp year-on-year increase of 14.1% to 294,000 tonnes, while passenger volume and flight movements dropped 3.1% and 4.3% from the same period last year to 5.5 million and 31,235, respectively.

On a rolling 12-month basis, HKIA handled 70.6 million passengers, 410,255 flight movements and 4.57 million tonnes of cargo, recording year-on-year increases of 1.7%, 0.2% and 5.3%, respectively.

Virgin Australia takes on Cathay Pacific and Qantas with Hong Kong-Australia flights
Airline will have five Hong Kong-Melbourne flights a week starting in July, on route controlled by the other two carriers
March 21, 2017
South China Morning Post Excerpt

Hong Kong is set to get a boost as an international aviation hub for outbound Chinese travellers, with new flights between the city and Australia taking off this summer.

Cash-strapped Virgin Australia will join forces with mainland conglomerate HNA Group to launch flights five times a week from Melbourne to Hong Kong from July. The two are embarking on a partnership to compete on the Hong Kong-Australia route long dominated by Cathay Pacific and Qantas Airways.

The new partnership ensures Hong Kong benefits from the rising number of mainland travellers flying overseas.

It comes at a time when mainland travel has been a boon to Australia, which received 1.2 million Chinese visitors last year, a figure that has more than doubled in five years. The forecast is for that to grow to four million in a decade.

Beijing and Canberra also sealed a deal late last year to have an unlimited number of flights between them; Hong Kong was not included as it negotiates its own air traffic deals.

South China Morning Post Excerpt
United Airlines targets Hong Kong-San Francisco route for new aircraft and business class
Upgrades include a 180-degree bed and associated premium lounges at key airports
March 29, 2017

In a bid to take on the “challenging” Asian market, United Airlines, one of the world’s largest carriers, has designated its Hong Kong-San Francisco route as the first international course for a new aircraft and business class product, a company senior official has said.

Walter Dias, United Airlines managing director for Greater China and Korea, said the sector saw plenty of new capacity flowing in last year.

He added that in the battle for premium services, the airline would focus on a new business class for the route, called Polaris, and the first class service would be phased out.

The airline showcased its new Boeing 777 aircraft on Monday.

Speaking at the event, Dias said: “Hong Kong is a matured and sophisticated market, which is not growing fast.

“This year, Asia also remains a challenging market, that’s why we are bringing Polaris first to Hong Kong.”

He said the newly purchased 14-strong fleet of long-range, wide-body Boeing 777-300ER planes will be entirely fitted with Polaris.

Improvements include a 180-degree bed and associated premium lounges at key airports such as Hong Kong, London’s Heathrow, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

The airline will also offer three daily flights into San Francisco.

“We may be a bit behind the curve, but Polaris is United’s most significant product in more than a decade,” Dias said of the new business class offering.

United faces strong competition from Cathay Pacific Airways whose business class also offers passengers a high-quality product.

Hong Kong’s air traffic control system suffers another glitch
Back-up system deployed for first time as operators lose information on positioning and altitude of planes
April 8, 2017
South China Morning Post Excerpt

The new air traffic control system suffered another glitch on Saturday when operators temporarily lost information on the positioning and altitude of a large number of flights.

This triggered the deployment of a back-up system for the first time since the HK$1.56 billion technology went live at the airport in November.

The incident happened less than a week after the system was given a clean bill of health by the Civil Aviation Department.

The problem lasted for 15 minutes but flights over Hong Kong airspace and in and out of the airport were not affected, authorities said. Controllers could still maintain audio and satellite contact with aircraft, the department added.

In a contradictory statement a spokeswoman said: “All of the information of the majority of flights was shown. Only a minority of flights could only show their positioning and altitude.”

Aviation and engineering experts insist the Raytheon Auto Trac III system is safe and reliable. The same experts were originally called in to help the department after a number of snags earlier, including flights disappearing from screens, false information appearing and planes flying too close to each other.
