HK Airport Authority To Build New HK$1 Bln Ferry Terminal
27 November 2006

HONG KONG (Dow Jones)--Airport Authority Hong Kong said Monday it will spend HK$1 billion on building a new ferry terminal linking the city's international airport with cities in nearby Guangdong province to meet increasing traffic demand.

The authority, which operates the Hong Kong International Airport, said it expects passenger volume at the ferry terminal to total 3 million in 2011, up from a forecast 1.5 million this year.

The new four-berth terminal is scheduled for completion in 2008, replacing the current, temporary facility. The pier will be linked to the airport's main terminal building by a driver-less train system.

Five ports in the Pearl River Delta, south China's industrial hub, have ferry services to the Hong Kong airport, connecting it with cities such as Shenzhen and Macau. Ferry operators said they are considering adding three more points in coming months.

The latest expansion is part of the airport authority's overall plans to boost capacity at the airport as passenger traffic rises to near its current annual handling capacity of 45 million.

It expects 60 million passengers to pass through the government-owned airport annually by 2020, up nearly 50% from 40.7 million last year. The rise will likely be fueled by surging trade and tourism growth in the Pearl River Delta.

In January, the authority said it will spend HK$4.5 billion over the next four years to build a satellite concourse beside the passenger terminal, increase parking bays for cargo aircraft, and improve facilities in the main terminal building.

China Air bearish on HK freight
Alman Loong
27 November 2006
Hong Kong Standard

Taiwanese carrier China Airlines sees competition across the border clouding the outlook for Hong Kong's airfreight business, especially once airports in southern China resume direct links with Taiwan.

China Airlines is the world's fifth largest air cargo carrier in terms of freight ton kilometers flown, data for 2005 from the International Air Transport Association show. Korea Air, Deutsche Lufthansa, Singapore Airlines and Cathay Pacific are the top four, according to 2005 rankings by IATA.

China Airlines general manager (Hong Kong) Michael Wu said: ``Hong Kong International Airport is facing a significant threat to its cargo business from Guangzhou's new Baiyun airport. If Guangzhou strengthens its facilities, such as customs and capacity, Hong Kong would lose its advantage after three to five years.''

At Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminal, cargo growth in 2005 was 7.5 percent, down 5.1 percentage points from 12.6 percent in 2004.

``We've got to face reality that there will be an impact if direct flights between China and Taiwan resume. We have no idea what the impact might be because it depends on how many direct flights there are,'' Wu said.

He also objects to the third self- operated air cargo facility proposed by Cathay Pacific (0293), considering slow air cargo growth and overcapacity.

He said China Airlines intends to tie up with other mainland carriers through a special prorate agreement to avoid losing market share.

``We plan to sign more agreements with other airlines such as CR Airways, HK Express, Shenzhen Airways, or even Hainan Airlines, to tap their network to secondary cities like Changsha,'' Wu said.

A special prorate agreement is a ticket discount offer from airlines to others aimed at increasing passenger volumes.

China Airlines has experience working with mainland carriers.

``We collaborate with three major airline groups in China, with respect to code-sharing,'' Wu said. Between 500,000 and 600,000 people fly from Hong Kong to Taiwan every year. China Airlines operates 17 flights from Hong Kong to Taiwan every day. The load factor is about 80 percent. China Airlines accounts for between 30 percent and 35 percent market share on the Hong Kong-Taiwan route and 50 percent to 53 percent on the Hong Kong-Kaohsiung route.

Wu expects the next round of negotiations between Hong Kong and Taiwan, due in the first half of next year, will pave the way for a rearrangement of cargo capacity on the route.

``Our cargo business increased 10 to 15 percent in the first 10 months of the year, better than the overall Hong Kong market. We should ask for more capacity in the next round of talks,'' Wu suggested.

Air space problems push up fuel use
Changes to long arrival and departure procedures would mean big savings, says association
27 November 2006
South China Morning Post

At least 84,000 tonnes of jet fuel - which creates 250,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions - could be saved every year if aviation authorities changed arrival and departure procedures at Hong Kong's airport, according to the International Air Transport Association.

Congestion over the Pearl River Delta - which has the Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Macau airports - forces aircraft to fly at higher altitudes and travel longer distances than would be the case if use of the air space were rationalised.

"Current airspace is very restrictive and requires extremely high altitude restrictions. This leads to lengthy arrival and departure procedures," an association report says.

It estimates that flights entering Hong Kong are required to travel an extra 140 nautical miles and flights leaving the city an extra 60 nautical miles.

A source familiar with the issue said this was largely a consequence of the Chinese military's air control zone over the region, which creates an invisible wall for civil aviation.

The association has tabled a proposal to the Hong Kong authorities to revise existing procedures, which could save 84,000 tonnes of fuel and up to 8,850 hours of flying time a year.

The amount of fuel saved would be equivalent to 118,500 cars travelling 10,000km a year. Carbon dioxide emissions could be reduced by 250,000 tonnes a year, the report estimates.

A Civil Aviation Department spokesman said Macau, Hong Kong and mainland authorities had met twice this year to discuss air space problems, but no concrete measures had been formulated or implemented so far.

To combat climate change, Cathay Pacific Airways is now considering following a British Airways initiative to invite passengers to buy credits to offset carbon dioxide emissions, Cathay's environmental manager, Linden Coppell, said.

Under the scheme, passengers are asked to calculate and pay a share of the cost of neutralising the impact of those emissions.

It is estimated that a flight between Heathrow and Hong Kong generates 2.18 tonnes per passenger and costs US$29.54 to offset.

A spokesman for BA in Britain said that so far less than 1 per cent of their passengers had taken up the offset option. "Progress with the scheme has been steady so far, which is not unusual with a new, voluntary scheme. We will continue to build awareness about the initiative," he said.

BA has joined emission trading schemes in Britain and supports the inclusion of the aviation industry in the European carbon-trading scheme.

Airport Authority Hong Kong Announces Interim Results


(Hong Kong, 29 November 2006) - In its first interim results announcment, Airport Authority Hong Kong today revealed strong growth in turnover and profit attributable to shareholder for the six months ended 30 September 2006. The unaudited results, which were approved by the Airport Authority's Board of Directors, also included solid growth in passenger and cargo throughput.

Compared with the six months ended 30 September 2005, turnover rose 9.2%, to HK$3,814 million, EBITDA (Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) increased 9.6%, to $2,394 million, and profit attributable to shareholder grew 13.2%, to $993 million. Total passenger volume rose 9.2%, to 22.7 million, cargo throughput grew 3.5%, to around 1.8 million tonnes, and aircraft movements increased 6.0%, to 140,700.

"During the period, we achieved a breakthrough on the Mainland with the conclusion of a joint venture with the Zhuhai Municipal Government that will see us manage Zhuhai Airport for 20 years. By making the Airport Authority an insider in the Mainland aviation system, the agreement is also a key step in our long-term strategy of supporting the coordinated development of a Pearl River Delta (PRD) airport system so as to better serve the PRD region," observed Airport Authority Chief Executive Officer, Dr David J Pang.

Three new cargo carriers-Volga-Dnepr Airlines, Royal Khmer Airlines and ACT Airlines -and one passenger airline, Air Niugini, began serving Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) during the period, boosting the total number of airlines operating at HKIA to 85. A total of 5 new destinations, including Taichung, Chiang Mai, Krasnoyarsk, Port Moresby and Stockholm, were added to HKIA's network, bringing the total to around 150.

Today's announcement marks the first time the Airport Authority has released interim results. Finance Director Raymond Lai said, "The Airport Authority is committed to delivering timely, accurate and useful information to our stakeholders. Today's announcement reflects our commitment to good corporate governance, transparency and financial discipline."

Mr Lai added that he expects the six months ended 31 March 2007 will see increased operating expenses with the phased opening of HKIA's Terminal 2/SkyPlaza, which is scheduled to begin in early 2007.


The interim financial results have not been audited but have been reviewed by independent auditors before being approved by the Airport Authority's Board of Directors.

Hong Kong aviation authority OKs cuts in fuel surcharges by 13 airlines
22 November 2006

HONG KONG (AP) - Hong Kong's civil aviation authority said Wednesday it approved applications by Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd. and 12 other airlines to reduce their fuel surcharges by 3 percent beginning December as crude oil prices continue to decline.

The revised charges will continue to allow Hong Kong's dominant carrier and the other airlines to collect fuel surcharges from their passengers until the end of January, the Civil Aviation Department said.

The CAD, which reviews fuel surcharge applications for airlines flying into Hong Kong every two months, said that apart from Cathay, it also approved the requests to extend the charges from the airline's Hong Kong Dragon Airlines Ltd. unit, and from other airlines including mainland carriers Air China Ltd., China Southern Airlines Co. and China Eastern Airlines Corp.

Most airlines kept their surcharges unchanged between August and November.

From Dec. 1, Cathay Pacific will charge HK$113 (US$15; euro11) per passenger on short-haul routes, down from HK$117 in the previous two-month period, and HK$466 (US$60; euro47) per passenger on long-haul segments, down from HK$481.

Other airlines that have applied to extend the fees will also be charging their passengers a similar surcharge.

The rates are still considerably higher than they were in May, when most airlines charged HK$90 on short-haul routes and HK$370 on long-haul segments. Crude oil prices were around US$72 a barrel then, but have now fall to around US$60 a barrel.

Cathay Pacific has said jet fuel accounts for more than a third of its operating costs, which have taken a toll on the company's profitability.

Thursday, November 30, 2006
Government Press Release

The Civil Aviation Department, with the support of the International Civil Aviation Organisation, hosts the Aviation Language Proficiency Seminar today (November 30) and tomorrow in Hong Kong.

As an initiative to further enhance aviation safety, the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) formulated the language proficiency requirements for compliance by aviation personnel (including pilots and air traffic controllers) from March 5, 2008. The key objective of this international seminar is to give the aviation regulatory authorities and industry an update on the latest development of the language proficiency requirements.

Speaking at the opening ceremony of the seminar, the Director-General of Civil Aviation, Mr Norman Lo, said that the ICAO language requirements for radiotelephony communication serve as one of the most important aviation safety initiatives to be implemented. He also added that the air traffic service provider and airline operators in Hong Kong are implementing the new requirements step by step and would like to share their experience with other organisations.

More than 120 delegates from over 40 organisations attend the two-day seminar, including the civil aviation administrations, ICAO, International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers' Associations, International Federation of Air Line Pilots' Associations, airlines, air traffic service providers and linguistic consultants.

Hong Kong Airlines to Launch Clark-HK Route on Dec. 10

CLARK ZONE, Pampanga, Dec 7 Asia Pulse - Hong Kong Airlines will begin its Hong Kong to Clark service route with its maiden flight to the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (DMIA) here on December 10.
Victor Jose Luciano, president and chief executive officer of Clark International Airport Corp. (CIAC), said Hong Kong Airlines will be deploying its fleet of Boeing 737-800s and Boeing 787s, the last with a seating capacity of 156 economy and eight business class.

We are confident with the market, said Stanley Kan, general manager of HK Airlines Ground Services. Kan along with Edward Chong, general manager for HK Airlines Ground Operations met with Luciano at the CIAC offices on Wednesday to finalize their operations at DMIA.

"We will do our very best to help you succeed and hopefully further expand your operations here at DMIA," Luciano told the Hong Kong Airlines delegation.

At present, Hong Kong Airlines has three Boeing 737 passenger jets. Two more aircraft of the same type are expected to arrive this month and in January next year to boost its bid to be competitive in the budget airlines market.

Hong Kong Airlines will fly the Hong Kong-Clark-Hong Kong route four times a week or every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.

CIAC executive vice president Alexander Cauguiran welcomed the entry of Hong Kong Airlines at DMIA, saying that OFWs and those who wish to travel to Hong Kong from Central and Northern Luzon and Cagayan Valley regions will no longer have to take their flights in Manila.

Hong Kong Airlines had launched its domestic routes in mainland China this year, specifically to Changsha and Tianjin.

It will also open new routes to Chengdu, Xian, Nanjing, Fuzhou, along with international routes to Seoul, Taegu and Pusan in South Korea as well as other Southeast Asian routes.

Top airport job goes to Stanley Hui, say sources
Hong Kong Standard
Thursday, December 07, 2006

Former Dragonair chief Stanley Hui Hon-chung has been appointed chief executive officer of the Airport Authority Hong Kong, replacing David Pang, sources told The Standard Wednesday.

Hui was shortlisted among the final candidates, who included senior management from the authority as well as an overseas candidate, they said.

A spokesman for the authority declined to comment, saying an announcement on the new appointment would be made in due course.

Pang was appointed chief executive in January 2001 and June 13 this year it was announced that he had opted not to renew his three-year contract, which ends December 31.

However, Pang did agree to stay on until the global search for a successor was complete.

Market speculation hinted that Hui would be in the running for the position because he had resigned August 29 as chief executive of Dragonair, after Cathay Pacific Airways' (0293) shareholders approved the buyout deal for Dragonair.

Hui began his airline career in 1975 as a management trainee for Cathay Pacific. In preparation for the 1997 handover, he became Cathay Pacific's manager, international affairs, representing the airline in negotiations on air-service agreements.

From 1994 to 1997, he was chief operating officer of cargo carrier Air Hong Kong, a subsidiary of Cathay Pacific. He became chief executive of Dragonair in February 1997.

During his 10 years with the airline, Hui took the company from being a small carrier operating 11 aircraft serving 24 destinations in Asia to becoming an award-winning airline with a fleet of 37 aircraft serving 38 cities worldwide.

On the same day he resigned from Dragonair, China National Aviation Corp Group, a wholly owned subsidiary of China National Aviation Holding, appointed Hui as director starting from September 1.

However, there is market speculation that Hui will resign his CNACG post when his appointment as authority chief executive is made official, to avoid a conflict of interest.
