Annual Aircraft Crash and Rescue Exercise Tests HKIA's Emergency Preparedness
Press Release Excerpt

(HONG KONG, 8 November 2017) – Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) successfully conducted its annual aircraft crash and rescue exercise this morning, proving its readiness and effectiveness in handling contingencies. The exercise aims to provide opportunities for the airport community, Government departments and related organisations to familiarise themselves with and practise cooperation in emergency procedures dealing with aircraft incidents.

Over 1,000 representatives from more than 100 organisations and Government departments joined the exercise. Volunteers were also recruited to simulate as passengers, meeters and greeters, and journalists. Cathay Pacific Airways was the participating airline in this year’s exercise.

The exercise started at 0200hrs when a simulated arrival flight carrying 130 people mistakenly entered a taxiway not assigned for its use after landing. According to the exercise scenario, the starboard engine of the A350 aircraft hit the construction site hoarding of the Remaining Midfield Area and crashed into an adjacent diesel generator. The aircraft then caught fire, causing heavy smoke inside the aircraft cabin.

Air Traffic Control Tower personnel immediately activated the crash alarm, and emergency services arrived at the accident site soon afterwards to render rescue, medical, casualty conveyance and other support operations. The Airport Emergency Centre (AEC) was activated to facilitate close communications and coordination among different departments and organisations. The Airport Fire Contingent, Chek Lap Kok Fire Station and Tung Chung Fire Station deployed 15 fire appliances and 16 ambulances to the scene. A mobile liaison centre was also set up to coordinate the field activities with on-scene commanding units of government departments.

In the simulated scenario, a total of 3 deaths and 80 injuries were reported. Injured passengers and crew members were rescued and conveyed to six hospitals by ambulance or other vehicles. Uninjured passengers were taken to the Passenger Reception Centre for assistance and police debriefing, and then underwent immigration and customs clearance before going to the Family Reception Centre to reunite with their families.

Less luxury, more affordability in Hong Kong airport duty free shake-up
China Duty Free Group promises to offer ‘more competitive’ prices when it takes over operations on Saturday
November 16, 2017
South China Morning Post Excerpt

Luxury and high-end shopping will be sidelined in a major revamp of the duty free shopping experience at Hong Kong International Airport.

In a bid to make shopping more accessible and affordable, air travellers are being promised cheaper “more competitive” prices, a wider range of items at different price points and “try before you buy” services from the company set to take over the airport’s duty free stores.

China Duty Free Group, part of the mainland’s state-owned China Travel Service, won the concession in a joint venture deal with Lagardere Travel Retail earlier this year, ousting Hong Kong-based retailer DFS Group, part of the luxury Louis Vuitton conglomerate, at one of the world’s most profitable airports.

The contract starts on Saturday and lasts until 2024.

Eudes Fabre, CEO for Greater China at Lagardere Travel Retail, said: “One of the pillars is resetting the price perception of Hong Kong airport. It’s true that in the past, the [airport] catered to the very high-end and luxury.

“Our challenge here is to have these very premium, high-end and one-off items while having an entire range of products that appeal to any type of traveller at any price point.”

From the South China Morning Post, about delays in baggage handling from the Midfield Concourse.

Quote:
Why your luggage takes a lot longer to get through Hong Kong airport than you do

World-class efficiency at the airport is tainted by lengthy waits in reclaim hall – and the problem is likely to continue for another 18 months

PUBLISHED : Saturday, 18 November, 2017, 9:17am
UPDATED : Saturday, 18 November, 2017, 10:50pm

The world-class efficiency at Hong Kong International Airport is frequently let down by a luggage lag as passengers zip through immigration, only to find themselves burdened by a wait in the reclaim hall.

And the problem is likely to trundle on for another 18 months at least.
In the summer, construction began on a 2km conveyor belt linking a detached passenger building to the main arrivals hall, which should be completed by August 2019. But until then, the wait for suitcases is likely to go on as about 80,000 bags arrive daily, more than 2,700 of which will take longer than 40 minutes to reach the reclaim hall.

Lawmakers in the past have raised questions in Hong Kong’s legislature while readers of the Post have often complained about the poor service. Lee Jae Woon, a Hong Kong-based academic who specialises in aviation, said: “I pay attention to the flow of airports and I have found Hong Kong’s baggage delivery to be exceptionally slow compared with its immigration.”

Less luxury, more affordability in Hong Kong airport duty free shake-up
On his most recent trip, flying on Hong Kong Airlines, he waited 45 minutes for his bag – a stark contrast to Seoul Incheon airport at the other end of his journey, where the typical wait is no more than 10 to 20 minutes.

The Airport Authority declined to explain why the terminal isolated in the middle of the airfield, which opened in 2015, is still not connected to the main system and has to rely on baggage trucks.

A spokesman shifted the blame onto unspecified airlines. “We noticed underperformance by some airlines and requested they work closely with their ramp-handling operators to improve,” he said.

Two weeks ago, Airport Authority CEO Fred Lam Tin-fuk said the sheer frustration of passengers and airlines showed “there was room for all of us to do better”.

“The plans that are taking place over the next few years will help achieve that,” Lam said, referring to fixing the baggage service. “We are taking many steps to improve the overall experience of passengers, not just baggage delivery, but check-in facilities and retail experience too.”

The airport chief tried to bat off the concerns, insisting the authority still managed to hit its targets for delivering luggage within a set time.
In the 2016/17 financial year, the first bag arrived at baggage reclaim within 20 minutes 96.8 per cent of the time and the last bag arrived within 40 minutes 96.6 per cent of the time – close to record-high performance levels.
Hong Kong Airlines, the main users of the new terminal, has borne the significant brunt of customer complaints for baggage delays.

Tang King-shing, one of the airline’s top executives, has experienced the frustration first-hand. “[I] got to the reclaim hall and saw my baggage was delayed and [found myself wondering why]” Tang said. Even though his bag showed up soon after, the “perception” of the delay soured his journey.

The Airport Authority uses the same standard time and criteria for baggage arriving from the detached concourse as it does for airlines operating from the main terminal, giving passengers high expectations of a swift reclaim.
Pleading for a change to reduce passenger expectations that all bags would be delivered fast and in an efficient matter, Tang said: “We presented our case to the authority that they adjust their criteria. It is unfair that our passengers get the wrong impression that our baggage is always delayed. We have a much longer wait than most airlines.”

So this is primarily a HX/UO issue then, since CX/KA doesn't use that concourse.

HKIA Records Significant Traffic Growth in November
Press Release Excerpt

(HONG KONG, 17 December 2017) – Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) saw significant growth in all three air traffic figures in November. During the month, passenger volume rose by 10% to 5.94 million, while flight movements increased by 7% to 34,900 compared to the same month last year. Cargo throughput went up by 6.9% year on year to 466,000 tonnes.

Passenger traffic recorded strong growth in November. Building on a low base created by a temporary reduction of timeslots due to the launch of the new air traffic management system last year, passenger growth was mainly driven by a 16% year-on-year increase in transfer/transit traffic. Passenger traffic to/from Southeast Asia, Mainland China and Japan recorded the most significant increases.

Transshipments and exports were the main drivers of growth in cargo throughput in November. Compared to the same month last year, transshipments registered 10% year-on-year growth, and exports recorded an 8% increase. Amongst the key trading regions, traffic to/from North America, India and Europe increased most significantly.

Over the first 11 months of 2017, HKIA has welcomed 66.5 million passengers, and handled 383,995 flight movements, marking year-on-year increases of 3.3% and 2.2%, respectively. Cargo throughput soared 9.6% from the same period in 2016 to 4.48 million tonnes.

On a rolling 12-month basis, HKIA handled 72.6 million passengers and 419,660 flight movements, recording year-on-year increases of 3.2% and 2%, respectively, while cargo throughput climbed 9.7% to 4.91 million tonnes.

Philippine Airlines to add hundreds more seats, as firms rally to bring stranded helpers home for Christmas
Cathay Pacific will also switch to larger planes, while cashless payments company TNG organises HK$500,000 giveaway to help victims get new tickets
December 21, 2017
South China Morning Post Excerpt

Businesses are rallying around Hong Kong’s foreign domestic helpers with cash giveaways and other solutions to help fly people home after a ticketing fiasco at a local travel agency left up to 1,000 customers in the lurch.

Philippine Airlines announced that it would put on sale hundreds more tickets for those left without a seat after Peya Travel, a company specialising in flights for domestic helpers, sold air tickets that were not guaranteed, leaving customers stranded.

The country’s national airline said it would be using larger aircraft on December 22 and 23, primarily to get people out of Hong Kong in time for Christmas, and for flights returning on January 3 and 4 from Manila to Hong Kong.

“Our hearts go out to our stranded countrymen. We hope this gesture will serve as a means to help a number of them come home to the Philippines in time for Christmas Day,” Philippine Airlines president and chief operating officer Jaime J. Bautista said in a statement.

A 309-seat Airbus A330 will be used for selected flights instead of a 199-seat Airbus A321.

o ensure that only those affected by the Peya Travel issues will benefit, interested parties have been told to head to Philippine Airline’s Tsim Sha Tsui ticket office in East Ocean Centre building to get their tickets. They will need to bring proof that they were affected by the problem.

Hong Kong seals first aircraft leasing deal under new tax regime
ICBC Financial Leasing has completed delivery of a new Boeing aircraft to Korean Airlines this week
December 22, 2017
South China Morning Post Excerpt

The first aircraft rental transaction to take advantage of new tax benefits designed to help Hong Kong-based aviation leasing companies compete with those in rivals leasing centres was completed this week.

ICBC Financial Leasing’s decision to use Hong Kong as a jurisdiction over more established centres like Ireland and Singapore is a boost to the city’s ambition to build itself into a global aviation leasing hub. It comes less than six months after the government halved the standard tax rates for lessors to 8.25 per cent.

The lessor, owned by the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China – the country’s biggest bank by assets – entered into an aircraft rental agreement with Korean Airlines for the lease of a new Boeing B787-9, which was delivered to the carrier on Wednesday, said the Hong Kong Aircraft Leasing and Aviation Finance Association.

ICBC Financial is understood to have switched its preference to Hong Kong, having initially intended to use Ireland as its leasing platform, according to sources familiar with the deal.

“The debut does demonstrate clearly that the new Hong Kong tax regime for aircraft leasing and financing can be put to very effective use, removing any doubts that some parties may have had,” said Stanley Hui Hon-chung, president of the association.

CAD investigates case of runway incident
Government Press Release Excerpt
Sunday, December 24, 2017

A departing flight aborted take off shortly after its commencement of take-off roll at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) yesterday (December 23) night because another aircraft was taxiing across the far end of the same runway. No one was injured and the operation at HKIA was not affected by the incident.

"At around 9.06pm yesterday, a Hong Kong Airlines A333 passenger aircraft (flight number: HX709) from Hong Kong to Bali, Indonesia, was preparing for take off on Runway 07R at the HKIA after receiving the clearance from an Air Traffic Control Officer (ATCO). Shortly after the A333 aircraft commenced its take-off roll, the pilot of an arriving Cathay Pacific Airways B748 freighter aircraft (flight number: CX071) from Alaska, the United States, informed the ATCO concerned that his aircraft was crossing the same runway and has not yet completely vacated the runway. The ATCO concerned immediately instructed the A333 aircraft to abort take off. According to preliminary information, the Hong Kong Airlines aircraft had just commenced its roll for several tens of metres before terminating the takeoff and the Cathay Pacific Airways freighter aircraft was at the other end of the runway, which is 3 800 metres long. The two aircraft has no risk of collision. Subsequently, the A333 aircraft departed for its destination as planned," a spokesperson for the Civil Aviation Department (CAD) said.
