Flow Enhancement Key to HK Air Cargo Growth: CEO

HONG KONG, May 19 Asia Pulse - The enhancement of flow is the top priority in maintaining Hong Kong's position as the premier air cargo hub in the southern part of China, said David J Pang, chief executive officer of Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA).
Speaking at the Logistics Hong Kong 2004 Conference on Tuesday, Pang said the main thrust would be to improve connectivity with the Pearl River Delta (PRD), smoothen cross-boundary process and develop cooperation with mainland airports, especially with those within the PRD region.

"At the end of the day what matters most to the customers are factors including connectivity, reliability, efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Currently Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) has a comparative advantage in these aspects but we will need to continue to improve and grow upon the existing critical mass," he explained.

The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) government's adoption of a liberalized air services policy has helped further expand the extensive international air cargo network, and promote the economic growth in Hong Kong and the PRD, according to Pang.

"We also proactively reach out to our extended home market in the PRD. We have been exploring ways of cooperation with airports in the region to better integrate the flow -- to reduce total costs and increase efficiency in a hazzle-free manner," he added.

With the mainland international air cargo sector projected to have a double-digit growth year on year, Hong Kong could benefit enormously by carving a good portion of the growing pie, Pang said.

Logistics is one of the four pillars that support the Hong Kong economy. In 2003, HKIA handled 2.64 million tons of air cargo, an increase of 6.6 per cent compared with 2002. Seventy% of the cargo flow originated in the PRD.

Pang said it is important that there is timely provision of air cargo facilities in Hong Kong to meet increasing demands. Air cargo traffic at HKIA is expected to grow 6 per cent annually, with express cargo to grow at a rate of 13 per cent.

An express cargo terminal will be operational from the second half of this year. AA has also formed a joint venture with Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited to develop a cargo consolidation center in Futian, Shenzhen. Four parking stands will be built by 2005 to supplement existing 21 stands for cargo freighters. The ultimate air cargo handling capacity at Hong Kong International Airport is 9 million tons annually.

Cathay Pacific Airlines considering flying to Israel

The splendor of the Orient is making its way to Israel. Cathay Pacific is examining the possibility of operating a flight from the Far East to Israel.

Augustus Tang, Cathay Pacific Airline’s Director of Corporate Planning, told Maariv that the move was being examined as part of company plans to establish flights from the Far East to the Middle East.

According to Tang, in light of the increasing travel between Israel and from several Middle Eastern nations to the Far East, the company would like to begin operating flights between the two areas. The fine points are being scrutinized. Tang believes that a decision, to be based on a review of the data and of feasibility, will be made within several months.

Cathay Pacific Airlines is known for showing strong profitability. The company consistently wins numerous prestigious international awards for its service year after year. Based in Hong Kong, the company has a fleet of 94 modern planes, and operates lines from Hong Kong to Los Angeles, New York and European capitals.

AirBridge plans Russia-HK cargo run

20 May 2004, South China Morning Post



RUSSELL BARLING

A subsidiary of Russian heavy-lift specialist Volga Dnepr plans to launch general-cargo services to Hong Kong in November, using aviation rights won in January's air-services agreement between Russia and Hong Kong.

Wholly owned AirBridge Cargo intends to offer thrice-weekly flights with Boeing 747-200 aircraft to complement services it launched last week to Shanghai and Beijing from Moscow and its Siberian hub at Novosibirsk.

"Our ambition is to get [Hong Kong services] moving right away. We definitely want to be in Hong Kong for the [Christmas] peak season," managing director Stan Wraight said. "At a minimum, we will start with a three-times weekly service. We have the rights for four times a week."

Last week, Cathay Pacific Airways chief executive David Turnbull said the airline would launch a service to Moscow, and cargo would be one of the factors that would make flights to the capital an attractive proposition.

AirBridge's parent was awarded the rights in January when Russia and Hong Kong agreed to a further seven flights a week. Mr Wraight said Russian authorities gave Aeroflot three of those rights; the rest went to Volga Dnepr.

Airport officials, the Civil Aviation Department (CAD) and Hongkong Air Cargo Terminals said they met the AirBridge delegation on Tuesday to lay the groundwork for the airline's Hong Kong launch.

The CAD, however, said no formal application for an air operator licence had been received. "The CAD has received inquiries from AirBridge Cargo on operation of services to Hong Kong," a spokeswoman said. An application took about 10 days.

AirBridge recently bought two 100-tonne-capacity B747-200 freighters from Italian carrier Alitalia. The first was used to launch the twice-weekly Shanghai and Beijing services last week and the second is being serviced.

It will launch a third China service, between Tianjin and Moscow, when the second aircraft is available, and will increase the Shanghai-Moscow service to three times a week. The Beijing service flies to Novosibirsk.

AirBridge is in talks to take possession of a third B747-200 by autumn and will use the aircraft to launch the Hong Kong service, which can fly anywhere in Russia except Moscow.

"Moscow is a Russian restriction because that is where Aeroflot flies from Hong Kong," Mr Wraight said.

The carrier's Greater China services are all scheduled beyond its Russian hubs to Luxembourg, giving Asian exporters another transport option to Europe and AirBridge more Asian cargo volume. It is also looking at opening up connecting flights to Italy and Britain.

Cargo growth continues at HKIA

(HONG KONG, 16 May 2004) - Cargo throughput at Hong Kong International Airport last month stood at 249,000 tonnes, a 22.5% increase over April last year, mainly driven by strong economic growth on the Mainland and consumption in the USA.

A total of 3.09 million passengers travelled through the airport, up 5.8% compared with April 2002. April 2003 was not used as the benchmark since air travel was highly affected by SARS. A total of 19,650 aircraft movements were recorded, up 17.4% compared with April 2002. There were 16,680 passenger and 2,605 cargo flights during the month.

Over a rolling 12-month period from May 2003 to April 2004, passenger throughput fell by 7.2% to 29.8 million. Cargo throughput rose by 9.1% over the same period to 2.78 million tonnes. Total aircraft movements dropped by 4.3% to 198,000.
