Hong Kong, Macau and mainland China to work together on air traffic management in Pearl River Delta
Memorandum of cooperation covers regular meetings and exchange visits as well as coordination mechanism for sharing information
July 14, 2017
South China Morning Post Excerpt

The civil aviation authorities from Hong Kong, Macau and the mainland signed an agreement on Thursday to enhance cooperation over air traffic management in the Pearl River Delta.

Under the memorandum of cooperation, the three authorities will set up a regular exchange mechanism on air traffic flow management, under which a technical group on air traffic flow management will meet biannually and conduct regular exchange visits to promote cooperation among the technical experts.

They will also set up a day-to-day coordination mechanism on air traffic flow management to facilitate direct exchange of operational information and coordination of management measures.

An emergency liaison mechanism will be established for better communications in case of contingencies.

The three sides also agreed to initiate modelling and simulation of the airspace and air traffic in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Bay Area by using advanced technology to provide analysis for planning and formulating air traffic management procedures and measures.

This analysis would provide data and technical support in airspace optimisation for the construction of the third runway at the city’s international airport, and the development of airports in Macau, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Zhuhai.

Faster security screening soon at Hong Kong airport, but passengers may bear cost of perk
New dedicated channel for premium customers to be launched in September, with service also open to travellers with special needs and reduced mobility
July 16, 2017
South China Morning Post Excerpt

Speedy security screening at Hong Kong’s airport is about to get even faster, but this will come with higher costs – likely to be borne by airlines, which will pass them onto passengers.

Hong Kong International Airport is set to unveil a dedicated security channel for premium travellers departing the city, with the service also open to those with special needs and reduced mobility, those who are pregnant, the elderly and adults with infants, according to the Airport Authority, which operates the airport.

Industry sources have told the South China Morning Post that the airport will charge airlines HK$20 for just the premium passengers using the so-called “fast track” security service, to be officially launched in September.

Cathay Pacific Airways, Cathay Dragon and Hong Kong Airlines will also take part in a test run of the new facilities later this month. The three airlines said they welcomed “any initiative” that boosted the experience of passengers.

But a number of major international airlines told the Post they were not interested in signing up for the new service, noting that it did not include speedy immigration checks.

One prominent carrier felt it was being pressured to sign up, while another criticised the lack of details about the facility and the benefits for airlines.
Passengers currently pay a HK$45 security charge, and in the 2016 to 2017 financial year, 99 per cent of them queued for 4.5 minutes or less, according to the Airport Authority.

If enough airports become too space-constrained, they may yet be forced to do so.

Singapore and Hong Kong's Airport Dominance Is Under Threat
July 27, 2017
Bloomberg Excerpt

For decades, Singapore and Hong Kong have reigned supreme: as key transit points connecting travelers in Asia to and from the rest of the world. But now, a $1 trillion global airport spree is threatening the status quo.

About half that money is due to be spent on upgrading or building new airports in Asia, the Sydney-based CAPA Centre for Aviation estimates. In Beijing, a new $12.9 billion airport due to open in 2019 will turn China’s capital into one of the world’s biggest aviation hubs. Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport is set for 117 billion baht ($3.5 billion) of upgrades through 2021 including a third runway. South Korea’s Incheon International Airport is spending 5 trillion won ($4.5 billion) on a second terminal as it aims to become “the world’s leading mega-hub airport.”

As part of efforts to keep up, Singapore’s Changi Airport this month unveiled a S$1.3 billion ($950 million) fourth terminal. Hong Kong, meanwhile, plans to fill in part of the South China Sea to make room for a third runway — at a cost of HK$141.5 billion ($18 billion).

“It’s a race between global hubs,” said Torbjorn Karlsson, partner in the civil aviation practice at Korn Ferry International in Singapore. “The question is who are going to be the big winners.”

According to CAPA research published July 20, about $255 billion is currently earmarked to build new airports worldwide, with another $845 billion to be spent on upgrades such as extra runways and terminals. All told, the construction work stretches out to 2069, CAPA said.

New airports in Asia will soak up more than $125 billion, compared with just $3.6 billion on brand new sites in the U.S. and Canada, CAPA said.The new developments are an identity crisis in-waiting for Hong Kong and Singapore. Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd. and Singapore Airlines Ltd. have made their names in the jet era ferrying visitors in and out of the cities and onward.

“Twenty years ago, airports were just sitting there waiting for airlines to come and fly there,” said Joanna Lu, who specializes in airports and route networks as the Hong Kong-based head of Asian advisory at Flight Ascend Consultancy. “Things change very quickly. It’s hard to say the transfer market is going to be always yours.”

Hong Kong given level playing field after government cuts tax rate on aircraft leasing companies
July 30, 2017
South China Morning Post Excerpt

With the recent decision by the Hong Kong government to cut the tax rate on aircraft leasing companies, analysts and industry insiders believe the city has an opportunity to be less reliant on property and tourism when it comes to financial transactions.

In June the government announced it would reduce the effective tax rate on aircraft leasing companies to less than 10 per cent from over 30 per cent.

“The tax cut is significant for Hong Kong’s aircraft leasing business and it will make the [the city] more attractive I believe,” said Clarence Leung, a tax partner at PwC. He noted that the previously high tax rate was a big hurdle for aircraft lessors when entering into cross border aircraft leasing transactions.

The estimated effective tax rate for Hong Kong was 33 per cent, which compares with traditional aircraft leasing centres Ireland and Singapore with only 12.5 per cent and 5-10 per cent respectively.

“Coupled with the limited tax treaty network, [there was] no such business in Hong Kong,” Leung added. “However, the tax reduction will put Hong Kong on more equal footing with other financial leasing centres like Ireland and Singapore.”

Corrine Png, chief executive of Crucial Perspective, a Singapore-based research firm, agreed that the tax cut was long overdue and a significant milestone for Hong Kong’s aircraft financing market.

“Its existing tax regime was uncompetitive compared to Ireland and Singapore,” she said.

“A growing aircraft leasing business will help broaden and deepen the spectrum of financial services in Hong Kong. It will also create more jobs and support the development of Hong Kong’s aviation sector.”

HKIA Sees Monthly Record Highs in Passenger and Flight Movements in July
Press Release Excerpt

(HONG KONG, 13 August 2017) – Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) recorded significant growth in passenger throughput and flight movements in July, setting new monthly records in these two air traffic categories. Monthly passenger volume increased by 3.3% from the same month last year to 6.5 million, while flight movements climbed 3% to 36,270. Cargo volume also registered strong year-on-year growth of 11% to 422,000 tonnes.

Hong Kong resident travel and transfer/transit travellers both grew by 5% year-on-year in July, driving HKIA’s passenger traffic growth. Japan continued to be the major contributor to the growth, while Europe and North America also recorded significant increases.

Coinciding with an improvement in global trade, exports continued to lead the strong growth in cargo throughput. Exports experienced 15% growth while transshipments also rose by 10% during the month. Amongst key trading regions, Europe recorded the most significant increase.

In the first seven months of 2017, passenger throughput and flight movements increased by 1.6% to 42.2 million and 1.2% to 242,840, respectively. Cargo volume at HKIA registered 11.3% year-on-year growth to 2.7 million tonnes.

On a rolling 12-month basis, HKIA handled 71 million passengers, 414,415 flight movements and 4.8 million tonnes of cargo, recording year-on-year increases of 0.9%, 0.5% and 9.5%, respectively.

Kuching-Hong Kong flight may be revived, says Abdul Karim
August 12, 2017
Borneo Post Excerpt

SIBU: Ministry of Tourism, Arts, Culture, Youth and Sports will need to look into the reasons for the termination of Kuching-Hong Kong direct flight before deciding whether to revive the route.

Flights between Kuching and Hong Kong operated by Hong Kong Airlines (HKA) were cancelled in February this year.

“We will need to see why HK direct flight was terminated. If it were low load problem, then it might not be worthwhile to pursue its revival. If the demand for this sector is big, we will definitely try to revive it…,” Minister Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah told The Borneo Post yesterday.

Abdul Karim, who is Asajaya assemblyman, was asked if his ministry had any plan to look into the possibility of resuming Kuching-Hong Kong direct flight.

HKA had been providing HK-Kuching direct flight service since May 28 last year after Sarawak Tourism Board and HKA signed an agreement on Jan 21, 2016.

The inaugural flight was on May 28, 2016 and the route was served by a fleet of 174-seat Airbus A320s.
