Rumors surfaced, but were denied by both sides. The news died down and things have been quiet lately. There are some articles about the proposal in this thread (check the last few pages).

IATA Press Release
Right Decisions on Air Transport Will Benefit Hong Kong's Economy

(Hong Kong) "Global losses of over US$36 billion between 2001 and 2004 make industry change critical," said Giovanni Bisignani, Director General and CEO of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) at the Aerospace Forum Asia. "The extraordinarily high price of fuel will keep the industry in the red again in 2005 with another US$5.5 billion in losses."

"Airlines have done a great job of cutting costs and driving efficiencies throughout their operations. We see non-fuel unit costs dropping 2 to 3% each year. Simplifying the Business—driving down costs and enhancing passenger service—will add an industry-wide dimension to these efforts," said Bisignani. '

IATA's Simplifying the Business initiative focuses on using technology to make air travel less costly, more efficient and a better experience for the traveller. "100% e-ticketing globally by the end of 2007 is at the forefront of this revolution in travel and will save the industry at least US$3 billion annually. Bar coded boarding passes, common use of self-service kiosks for check-in, radio frequency identification (RFID) for baggage management and paperless cargo are all part of the airline vision for a low cost industry," said Bisignani.

While Asia is leading the industry in profitability, the high and volatile cost of fuel is a reminder that efficiency gains across the industry are essential. Bisignani called on Hong Kong to do its part to support industry efforts to return to profitability in two critical key areas: correct privatisation of the Hong Kong International Airport Authority and eliminating inefficient use of airspace in the Pearl River Delta.

Airport Privatisation

"Quite frankly, I do not care who owns the airport. It is the cost and the service levels that matter. Hong Kong's airport is a catalyst for overall economic development. It is important that the privatisation benefits all stakeholders: the people of Hong Kong, the government and the airport customers—travellers, shippers and airlines," said Bisignani.

"I am disturbed by the arguments that charges at the airport will need to rise. Already Hong Kong has the highest charges to airlines in this region next to Japan and the mainland of China. Any increase in charges will disadvantage Hong Kong compared to its neighbouring airports which are hungry for your business. A successful privatisation should generate efficiencies to allow for reduced costs," said Bisignani.

Let's also remember that the airport is already profitable. It made a HK$520 million profit in FY 2002-2003. This is impressive for a new facility during a period that featured an economic downturn and SARS," said Bisignani.

In 2004-2005 it is expected that the airport will turn a profit of HK$1 billion or a 4% return. "With expected growth of 5 - 6%, the potential contribution to Hong Kong's economy is enormous. Don't jeopardise this with short-sighted profiteering for an IPO. Transparency, efficiency, and benefits to all stakeholders are the guiding principles. And a strong independent regulator is needed to ensure that the airport monopoly does not have a licence to print money at the expense of the community that built it," said Bisignani.

Pearl River Delta

"At a time when airlines are struggling to keep costs under control, inefficient airspace management in the Pear River Delta region is costing the industry over US$400 million each year. This unnecessary cost to airlines and the environment is not acceptable. IATA is working closely with all parties in the region to rationalize the situation. And I call on all authorities concerned to come to a quick solution," said Bisignani.

"Hong Kong is well-known for its efficiency. It has invested in great airport infrastructure. Now it is time to capitalise on this investment by leading the industry in Simplifying the Business, effective airport privatisation and airspace management. The result will be a competitive air transport sector that contributes significantly to the economy," said Bisignani.

Corporate Press Release
Dragonair's 20th Anniversary Aircraft Arrives in Hong Kong
Unique A330 boasts spectacular livery outside, stunning features inside





(HONG KONG) Dragonair's spectacular "20th Anniversary Aircraft", which boasts a stunning external livery and a magnificent new interior, touched down at Hong Kong International Airport today.

"This spectacular aircraft will be an ambassador for Dragonair and for Hong Kong across Asia's skies," said Dragonair CEO Stanley Hui as he stood in front of the new A330. "It is the first aircraft in Dragonair's history to sport a special livery, and also has some stunning new features inside for our passengers."

The A330, the 29th passenger aircraft in Dragonair's fleet, arrived from the Airbus facilities in Toulouse, France. The livery was the most complicated Airbus had ever undertaken, requiring some 466 stencils in eight colours.

"The livery image embodies the spirit of the Chinese dragons of old – a spirit that aspires to excellence. We at Dragonair carry on that spirit today in the passion we have for serving our customers," said Mr. Hui.

"As an expression of this, the interior of the aircraft features personal TV monitors in all seats, new top-of-the-line seats in Business, and more comfortable seats in Economy."

In addition, there is in-seat power supply for lap-top computers throughout the Business Class cabin and in the first 10 rows of Economy Class, and toilets in Business Class feature full-length mirrors and – a first for a regional airline – windows.

"It is a fabulous aircraft both on the outside and on the inside," Mr. Hui said, " and we believe our passengers will love flying in it."

The new aircraft, the 12th A330 in Dragonair's fleet, is configured with 42 seats in Business Class and 273 Economy Class seats. It is powered by RR Trent 772B engines from Rolls-Royce.

"The aircraft will enter service this week on several routes, including to Beijing, Shanghai, Taipei and Tokyo," said Mr. Hui.

New pact to boost HK-Bahrain route; Airlines allowed unlimited flights between the two cities
Reports by Michael Taylor


TRAVEL BETWEEN Hong Kong and the Gulf is expected to increase following the signing of a memorandum of understanding between Bahrain and Hong Kong.

The agreement allows Gulf Air and Cathay Pacific to operate an unlimited number of flights between the two regions. Gulf Air currently operates flights daily, with a stop in Bangkok. Cathay Pacific operates nine flights a week on the route.

"This is a very important development as this air link plays an important role in bringing the two nations together," said Ahmed Ali, director of air transport and civil aviation in the Ministry of Transportation.

"Hong Kong is an important business hub in this part of the world, and Bahrain is a business centre for the entire Middle East."

Bahrain International Airport is one of the Gulf region's leading air hubs, serving 40 commercial airlines. It is also home to Gulf Air.

"We anticipate an increase in passenger traffic, especially with the opening of Hong Kong's Disneyland in September," Mr Ali said.

Bahrain is an archipelago of 33 islands in a bay between Qatar and Saudi Arabia. Nearly a quarter of the population of 650,000 people live in the capital of Manama. Foreign nationals account for 40 per cent of the population.

The country's key exports include petroleum, aluminium and services. Asia is its most important export destination. It imports crude oil and all non-oil commodities.

Saudi Arabia is by far its most import source of imports, accounting for 30.7 per cent. The United States follows with 11.4 per cent. Japan, Britain and Germany are other key import partners.

"Over the past decades, Gulf Air has proved to be the vehicle linking the people of Hong Kong and the Kingdom of Bahrain," said Dr Y.C. Chow, honorary consul of Bahrain and promoter of the Hong Kong Bahrain Business Association.

"Bahrain has long been a favourite regional destination for both leisure and business travel."

Tourism is expected to play an increasingly important role in the country's economy in the years to come.

"The kingdom is developing its strategy to attract a variety of visitors, and major tourism development projects are under way to cater for different needs in the areas of business, sports, health and family tourism," Dr Chow said.

In addition to Bahrain, Gulf Air is the national carrier of two other countries: the United Arab Emirates and the Sultanate of Oman. The three states are the airline's sole shareholders.

However, Gulf Air president James Hogan said the airline was considering privatisation "off the back of the strong results we posted for 2004 ... especially to generate the capital required to re-equip the airline".

"We have been in discussion with interested parties in this regard," he said.

With a population of more than 4 million people, the United Arab Emirates is Hong Kong's most important trading partner in the Middle East and its 18th most important export market worldwide. It is the city's 20th largest source of imports.

Hong Kong's major exports to the Emirates include clothing, telecommunications equipment, watches and clocks, parts and accessories of office machines and computers, audio and video recorders and players, and precious and semiprecious stones.

Hong Kong's major imports from the Emirates include engines and motors and their parts, pearls and semiprecious stones, telecommunications equipment and parts, glassware, petroleum oils (other than crude), cars, watches and clocks, motor vehicle parts and accessories, and jewellery.

Hong Kong's exports to the Emirates increased by 4.2per cent year on year in 2003, according to the Hong Kong Trade Development Council.

The city's re-exports to the Emirates increased by 3.8 per cent, with domestic exports rising by 26.4 per cent.

Of Hong Kong's top 10 exports to the Emirates in the first seven months of last year, six recorded positive growth.

Clothing and clothing accessories were up 42.5 per cent, telecommunications equipment and parts rose 8.5 per cent and watches and clocks climbed 4 per cent. Audio and video recorders and players climbed 36 per cent, toys, games and sporting goods were up 28.3 per cent and jewellery rose 32 per cent.

Four export items registered declines. Engines, motors and parts were down 6.3 per cent, parts and accessories for office machines and computers dropped 6.5 per cent, precious and semiprecious stones fell 41.7 per cent and radios declined 25.9 per cent.

Bordering the Arabian Sea, the Gulf of Oman and the Persian Gulf, Oman is located between Yemen and the United Arab Emirates. It has a population of more than 2.9 million people, of whom 577,000 are expatriates.

It has large oil and gas reserves, a substantial trade surplus and low inflation.

Key exports include petroleum, re-exports, fish, metals and textiles.

South Korea and China are its key export markets, each accounting for nearly 19 per cent. Japan follows with 16.2 per cent and Thailand with 12.2 per cent.

Other key export markets are the United Arab Emirates and Iran.

The sultanate imports machinery and transport equipment, manufactured goods, food, livestock and lubricants from the United Arab Emirates, Japan, the United States, Britain, Germany and India.

Shanghai Airlines has HK on cargo radar screen
Russell Barling
6 May 2005
South China Morning Post

Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Ltd (Hactl) added a sixth mainland carrier to its fold yesterday when Shanghai Airlines said it would start flying all-cargo aircraft to the world's busiest airport for international cargo next month.

The expansion-minded carrier, which punches above its weight as a mainland cargo carrier, is expected to launch the service with a B757F or B737F.

The intended frequency of the service was not disclosed.

It is the latest in a series of new services connecting Hong Kong with Shanghai Pudong International Airport, where freight volumes expanded 38 per cent last year to 1.64 million tonnes.

Cathay Pacific Airways on January 27 launched its return to the Yangtze River Delta's commercial heartland with a daily freighter service to Shanghai; Dragonair has also increased its all-cargo flights to the city this year.

The flurry of activity vastly expanded the volume of transshipment cargo Hactl handled in the first four months as it relayed Shanghai-origin freight to destinations abroad.

Transshipment volumes rose a comparative 45 per cent last month and have climbed 28 per cent so far this year to 115,031 tonnes.

The rise largely compensated for a worrisome decline in imports through the airport's biggest cargo centre, where inbound cargo volumes fell 7.1 per cent year on year in the first four months to almost 210,400 tonnes.

Hactl is investigating the cause of the decline. But indications are that US and European carriers may be loading up on cargo destined for traditional transit destinations, such as lucrative military shipments to the Middle East.

This leaves little space for Hong Kong freight.

However, strong export demand propped up Hactl's performance in the first four months, with total freight expanding 4.8 per cent year on year to 737,041 tonnes.

Exports rose 6.4 per cent for the period to 411,617 tonnes.

Hong Kong's CR Airways opens charter flights to Philippines' Subic

HONG KONG, May 5 (AFP) - Hong Kong charter carrier CR Airways has expanded its commercial services to include the gambling resort of Subic north of the Philippine capital Manila, company spokeswomen said Thursday.

CR Airways' will fly 40-seater jets three times a week with sales geared mainly at the high-end recreation market, ferrying punters to and from the city's casinos, the spokeswoman said.

The flights were launched to coincide with the opening of gambling operations in Subic, a former US naval base north of Manila that has been converted into a sprawling freeport and tourist attraction.

CR Airways currently flies services to a handful of regional tourist destinations including Phuket in Thailand and Siem Reap in Cambodia.

Emirates SkyCargo pumps up volumes to Gothenburg, Hong Kong


Shippers Today, Mar/Apr 2005

Emirates SkyCargo and SAS Cargo have added a freighter service between Dubai-Gothenburg and Dubai-Hong Kong. The new service, to start March 29 with a Boeing 747-400F, will fly to Gothenburg every Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday and to Hong Kong every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday in partnership with SAS Cargo.

"Emirates SkyCargo and SAS have experienced a wonderful win-win relationship over the past three months, and we have decided to extend our partnership with an additional flight both to Gothenburg and Hong Kong. This is a fine example of Emirates SkyCargo's proactive partnerships with other key players in the industry and our success in catalysing trade and easing capacity constraints," said Hiran Perera, Emirates' VP Cargo - Freighters.

Currently, Emirates SkyCargo carries toys and fabrics from Hong Kong, as well as computer chips and hi-tech components for Scandinavia's manufacturing industry, mainly the telecommunication equipments sector. From Gothenburg, the main cargo exports include finished telecommunication products, vehicle spare parts and pharmaceuticals.

"With this third frequency we will be able to offer optimal solutions to our customers in Scandinavia, as the freighter's departure schedules fit very well into the production schedules of local industries. Furthermore, it will enable us to meet the increasing demand for capacity from Hong Kong, which will enhance business opportunities and logistics solutions," said Kenneth Marx, President and CEO of SAS Cargo Group A/S. "Emirates SkyCargo has been extremely flexible in the planning of this additional frequency and we look forward to continuing our cooperation in the future."

The additional service means that Emirates SkyCargo's freighters will serve Gothenburg five times a week, twice on its way to New York every Saturday and Wednesday, and will operate to Hong Kong nine times a week. Emirates SkyCargo's route network cover 78 destinations in 55 countries on five continents. The cargo-only destinations served by its freighters include Budapest, Liege, Gothenburg, Amsterdam, Bangalore, Dalian and Taipei. Its freighters also serve other busy trade routes which are Emirates' passenger destinations, such as New York, Milan, Frankfurt, Düsseldorf, Amman, Istanbul, Johannesburg, Lahore, Mumbai, Chennai, Dhaka, Bangkok, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Singapore.

Emirates launched services to Seychelles in January and will start flying to Seoul, Hamburg and Geneva later in the year. In June, Emirates SkyCargo will receive the first of its three A310-300 freighters with a payload capacity of 39 tonnes each; and in 2008 it will receive the first of its two Airbus 380Fs, with a payload capacity of 150 tonnes each.

SKYTRAX AWARDS Best Airline Lounges 2005
Cathay Pacific tops the 2005 Airline Lounge Awards, ranked No 1 First Class lounge and No 1 Business Class lounge

The results for the 2005 Best Airline Lounges survey have been published by Skytrax Research, covering First and Business class airline lounges.

FIRST CLASS LOUNGE RANKING

1 Cathay Pacific - HKG
2 Thai Airways - BKK
3 South African Airways - JNB
4 Asiana Airlines - ICN
5 Malaysia Airlines (KUL)
6 Lufthansa (FRA)
7 Singapore Airlines (SIN)
8 Qatar Airways (DOH)
9 Gulf Air (BAH)
10 Swiss (ZRH)

BUSINESS CLASS LOUNGE RANKING

1 Cathay Pacific- HKG
2 Virgin Atlantic - LHR
3 Gulf Air - BAH
4 China Airlines - TPE
5 Swiss - ZRH
6 Singapore Airlines - SIN
7 SAS Scandinavian - CPH
8 Malaysia Airlines - KUL
9 China Airlines - TPE
10 Qantas Airways - SYD

Commenting on the lounge rankings, Peter Miller of Skytrax said "our lounge ratings are the result of an exacting analysis of standards. We are not interested in which airline has the largest lounges, or necessarily the most technologically advanced services - but the combined quality of product and service. A good airline lounge is somewhere you feel relaxed, genuinely welcome, and the expected product facilities are available."

"The airport experience is now a critical elements of today's air travel enjoyment in First and Business class, and passenger expectations are at their highest. Customers prepared to pay these fare levels expect the best quality of service - from start to finish of their journey" added Miller.

Lounge ranking assesses the national image and characteristics that an airline portrays throughout its lounge facilities. "Identity and branding is increasingly important for today's airlines, but we are not evaluating simply from the presence of corporate logos and branding" said Miller.

"The lounge is an opportunity to project the image and feeling of a country - creating a unique atmosphere, so that although you are actually passing time in a large concrete, utilitarian building, you feel as if you are closer to the real character of the country or culture. One of the best airlines in this respect, is South African Airways who have developed a striking and attractive African theme for all of their directly operated lounges - entering their lounge in London or Cape Town, and you enter into the wonderful world of Africa, with beautiful hand crafted furniture and decorations".

If you want to de-stress before or between flights, head for Thai Airways lounges in Bangkok where you can have a traditional Thai neck or foot massage.

In Hong Kong at the Cathay Pacific lounges you can indulge in a luxurious bath in the Cabanas, enjoy freshly cooked speciality noodle dishes, relax in a day-break room or surf the net anywhere in the lounges with wifi connectivity.

"There are a number of airlines claiming to offer high revenue passengers an exclusive or unique experience in the airport environment, although in some cases it is based on the re-working of an existing theme" said Miller. "Our Survey seeks out those airlines that offer something original, and above all, they offer in the best quality format"

The reality is that customers base their satisfaction levels on the actual experience. That experience is not going to be judged just on the "shopping list" of available lounge facilities, but the way in which they are delivered. As with all walks of life, it is the "feel-good" factor which determines satisfaction, and that is dependent on the quality and character of the service itself.

There is no shortage of "added-value" items that airlines have integrated into these lounges appealing to their highest revenue customers. Bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms - children's playrooms, games rooms, music rooms, dvd players, valet services, fitness centres, a la carte dining with lounge chefs ?to name just a few.

Airlines want to satisfy their loyal and most highly valued customers says Miller, and in this respect the real winners tend to be Asian carriers - lounges with the most developed product facilities, and service that is unsurpassed in other regions of the world.

Germany's Lufthansa has set the benchmark in Europe for First Class passengers, with its recently opened First Class terminal in Frankfurt, where pampering and personal service is the new watchword for First class travel. In the US, airline lounges tend to be more functional say Skytrax, and budgetary constraints affecting all carriers there means that product innovation or competitiveness is lagging behind other regions. These lounges are suited for domestic travel, but still do not match intercontinental travel standards that passengers are used.

Aviation Logistics - Introduction



It is the policy of the Airport Authority to franchise out aviation logistics business. Each franchise is awarded on a build-operate-transfer basis. Prior to the award of a franchise, expressions of interest are sought followed by invitation for business plan submissions from qualified candidates, and finally negotiations take place with the few "best" bidders. The process is fair and transparent strictly within the guidelines of the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC).

The successful candidate finances, designs, constructs, commissions and operates the facility for a fixed franchise term. In turn the franchisee gets the right to commercially run the relevant business. The number of franchises, the term and other conditions vary for different aviation logistics activities. The aviation logistics business franchised out include air cargo, aircraft catering, aircraft maintenance, aircraft ramp handling and aviation fuel.

The Airport Authority continuously works in business partnership with the franchisees, which allows our partners to pursue their commercial objectives within their fields of expertise. At the same time, the Authority regularly reviews their performance to ensure that they comply with the requirements of the airlines and the stakeholders in accordance with accepted international and industry standards. Ultimately, the goal of the Authority is to provide the "best-value" services to HKIA users in the most efficient and effective manner.

Aircraft Catering



The aircraft caterers provide a whole range of flight catering services. These services include the preparation and assembly of flight meals, loading and unloading of food and other catering loads onto aircraft, and the storage of catering equipment and supplies.

There are three aircraft catering franchisees, with a 15-year term, supplying more than 58 000 inflight meals per day.

Cathay Pacific Catering Services (H.K.) Ltd (CPCS) is a subsidiary of Cathay Pacific Airways. CPCS invested HK$1.6 billion to build a 50 400 sq.m. flight kitchen, which was designed to operate with an initial daily meal throughput of 55 000 meals, to be expanded to 80 000 meals per day.

LSG Lufthansa Service Hong Kong Ltd (LSG) is owned by LSG Catering Hong Kong Ltd, Hong Kong Dragon Airlines Ltd, Hong Kong International Air Catering Ltd and China National Aviation Co (HK) Ltd. LSG invested HK$660 million in a 15 000 sq.m. flight kitchen which is capable of handling 30 000 meals per day.

Gate Gourmet Hong Kong Ltd is owned by Gate Gourmet Switzerland and is one of the company's units in the Asia Pacific region with its head-office in Bangkok. Gate Gourmet invested HK$382 million to build an 8 850 sq.m. facility which is capable of producing 10 000 meals per day.

Numbers of meals handled from July 1998 to December 2003 were as follows:
Jul - Dec 1998 - 10.0 million
1999 - 20.6
2000 - 21.8
2001 - 21.4
2002 - 21.8
2003 - 18.3

In addition, ramp handling services cover preparation for delivery onto aircraft of bulk baggage and baggage containers, aircraft loading bridge operation, and passenger stairs operation.

Hong Kong Airport Services Ltd (HAS), Jardine Air Terminal Services (JATS) and Menzies Aviation Group (Hong Kong) Ltd, were granted 10-year franchise for aircraft ramping handling.

HAS is a joint venture between Cathay Pacific Airways Limited and Hong Kong Dragon Airlines Limited. HAS uses 1 700 units of vehicles and equipment for service.

Aviation Fuel



The aviation fuel facility is operated by AFSC Operations Ltd. which is owned by the following major oil companies and airlines:

* Caltex Oil Hong Kong Ltd
* Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd
* China National Aviation Corporation (Group) Ltd
* China Resources Petroleum Company Ltd
* Esso Hong Kong Ltd
* Kuwait Petroleum Aviation (Hong Kong) Ltd
* Mobil Oil Hong Kong Ltd
* Shell Aviation Ltd
* A joint venture between China Petroleum and Chemical Corporation (SINOPEC) and China Aviation Oil Supply Corporation (CAOSC)

The aviation fuel facility at the airport consists of an aviation fuel receiving facility at Sha Chau Island (some 6 kilometres north of the airport) where aviation fuel is received, a tank farm, a refueller calibration area and a hydrant system with total investment over HK$1.8 billion. The aviation fuel tank farm on the airport has a capacity of 172 000 cu.m.

Ocean going vessels bring aviation fuel directly from the oil terminals in the mainland China or from the overseas refineries. Vessels from overseas refineries first berth at the oil companies terminals at Tsing Yi. After settlement and certification tests, aviation fuel is shipped to the aviation fuel receiving facility at Sha Chau Island by smaller dedicated vessels and fuel is pumped to the tank farm at the airport via submarine pipelines.

AFSC Operations Ltd (the Operator) operates and maintains the aviation fuel facility under a franchise of 20 years. The Operator uses the technical support of Shell Aviation Ltd. A Management Association consisting of the representatives from the Authority, the Operator, the Hong Kong based air carriers, foreign air Carriers and fuel suppliers has been set up to monitor and control the operational activities of the Operator.

Into-Plane Services

The aviation fuel supplied to the aircraft is from the tank farm through the hydrant network to the parking bays. The final step of delivering the aviation fuel from the hydrant pits at the parking bays to the aircraft requires the services of the into-plane agents. With the help of a hydrant dispenser, into-plane agents dispense the aviation fuel into the aircraft. An airline can choose its own into-plane agent to undertake the services.

Press Release
CR Airways Launches Direct Flights from Hong Kong to Jinan

(Hong Kong, Wednesday, April 20 2005) CR Airways Limited has commenced its inaugural scheduled service from Hong Kong to Jinan on 21 April 2005, and the Company will hold an inaugural ceremony in Jinan on the same day. The Company has invited distinguished guests such as Mr. Y.K. Leung, Deputy Director-General from the Civil Aviation Department of the Hong Kong SAR Government, and other business associates to attend the ceremony. During the ceremony, officials from the Shandong Province, Jinan City and the Jinan Airport Authority will officiate the occasion.

Commencing April 21st, 2005, CR Airways will operate 3 times a week from Hong Kong to Jinan, every Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays; Jinan to Hong Kong on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays. These flight schedules will provide convenient, a more personalized service, direct point-to-point to both leisure and business travelers. According to our Chairman Mr. Robert Yip, Transportation is the pillar of economic expansion. Development of secondary routes both in and out of China has a promising future. Utilizing smaller carriers such as our Bombardier CRJ-200 to fly such routes could better serve the market needs and promote more economic and trade development among destinations served. Operating secondary cities has tremendous market potentials."

CR Airways is a low operating cost carrier with the flexibility to offer value-for-money pricing. Our fleet Bombardier CRJ-200 is a single cabin class, 50 seats regional jet which offers quick turnaround between one destination to another. CR Airways is moving towards its primary mission of flying business travelers to secondary cities in China directly from Hong Kong using smaller aircrafts. It has proven its ability in running schedule charter services and being able to obtain licenses in China. China's accession into WTO and the implementation of "Go West" long term plan are definitely increasing business travels to major secondary cities in China. Subsequently, there is an urgent need for services to secondary cities in China away from the main hub.

As a result of servicing these secondary cities in China, CR Airways could add value to the larger established carriers by extending its services to these passengers through various partnerships. For instance, interlining, code sharing, strategic alliance are all some of the ways the larger mainstream airlines could see the value in smaller operator servicing these routes. Mr. Yip has anticipated that CR Airways will introduce more routes to secondary cities in China in the coming months, Wenzhou, Zhejiang will be the next coming destination, and there will be others such as Changsha, Chongqing, Guilin, Haikou, Hangzhou, Kunming, Nanjing, Sanya, Tianjin and Wuhan.

Smoke on Air Canada flight
Matthew Lee
9 May 2005
Hong Kong Standard

An Air Canada flight was forced to return to Hong Kong after cabin crew saw smoke coming out of a reading light.

The Airbus A343 bound for Vancouver, with 231 passengers and 16 crew members, returned to Hong Kong International Airport shortly after takeoff at 4.03pm Sunday.

An Airport Authority spokeswoman said the control tower was notified at 4.34pm by flight AC 008 about smoke detected on board and asked to return to the airport. ``The flight landed safely at 4.45pm... No one was injured,'' she said.

Fire trucks were standing by near the runway. Preliminary investigations revealed that a reading light inside the cabin had an electrical short-circuit and emitted smoke but did not catch fire.

Investigations continued last night.
