HK's HACTL says Nov air cargo volume rises 8.2 pct

HONG KONG, Dec 11 (Reuters) - Hong Kong's main air cargo terminal said on Monday that it handled 8.2 percent more cargo in November compared with the same period last year.

Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Ltd. (HACTL), which is 25 percent-owned by Jardine Matheson Holdings and 20 percent by Swire Pacific Ltd. , moved 244,805 tonnes of cargo last month, it said in a statement.

Export volume rose 6.7 percent year-on-year to 144,828 tonnes in November, and imports increased 4.5 percent to 60,568 tonnes. Trans-shipment volume jumped 21 percent to 39,409 tonnes.

For the first 11 months of 2006, HACTL handled 2,330,143 tonnes of cargo, a rise of 5.4 percent, thanks to an 11.7 percent rise in trans-shipment, 4.7 percent rise in exports and 3.4 percent increase in imports during the period.

Nice updates as usual.
It seems like SAS might be coming back to HGK again, maybe as soon as next year.

Dragonair to become Oneworld affiliate in 2007

PARIS, Dec 12, 2006 (AFP) - Hong Kong airline Dragonair will become an affiliated member of the Oneworld alliance, providing Oneworld with increased access to the Chinese market, a source close to the matter told AFP Tuesday.

Dragonair, which serves 23 Chinese cities from Hong Kong, "will become an affiliated company with Oneworld next year. Its clients will benefit from all the advantages provided by the alliance," the source said.

The carrier was taken over in September by Cathay Pacific, a full Oneworld member along with American Airlines, British Airways, Finnair, Iberia, Lan Airlines and Quantas.

In 2007, the alliance expects to be joined by Japan Airlines, Malev and Royal Jordanian Airlines.

Oneworld also has a dozen affiliated companies and plans to take on five others, members of the Japan Airlines group, next year.

In mainland China, however, the alliance has still to find a full partner airline, while its rival Star Alliance has announced it will soon be joined by Air China and Shanghai Airlines.

Gov't Press Release:
Speech by SEDL at opening ceremony for second hangar of HAECO (English only)

Following is the speech by the Secretary for Economic Development and Labour, Mr Stephen Ip, at the opening ceremony for the second hangar of Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering Company Limited (HAECO) today (December 14) (English only):


Chris, PK, distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen,

I am glad to be here to join you for this happy occasion – the opening ceremony for HAECO's second hangar to provide additional capacity for base maintenance services to meet the needs of the airlines.

Being the only operator now capable of providing the full range of "Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul" services in Hong Kong, HAECO is an integral and important part of our airport and has made a valuable contribution to Hong Kong's development as an international aviation hub. From a modest start in Kai Tak in the 1950s, HAECO has now expanded to become one of the world's top five independent aircraft maintenance companies, in tandem with the development of Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) as the world's best airport.

The opening of this second hangar is another landmark in HAECO's long record of achievements over the past few decades. As HKIA's aircraft movements continue to break records, this new hangar will provide the much needed additional maintenance capacity to meet the growing needs of the airlines. It will also create nearly 900 directly or indirectly related jobs.

I am also delighted to note that HAECO has recently signed agreements with the Airport Authority to extend its franchise to 2036 and to invest another $800 million to build a third hangar. This will create more skilled jobs for Hong Kong, and demonstrates HAECO's confidence in and commitment to Hong Kong.

Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to extend my warmest congratulations to HAECO on the opening of its second hangar at the HKIA. No doubt this will bring benefits to HAECO, HKIA and Hong Kong as a whole.

Thank you.

CARGO RECORDS YEAR-ON-YEAR RISE FOR FOUR CONSECUTIVE MONTHS
Corporate Press Release

(HONG KONG) Dragonair posted a year-on-year rise in cargo in November, continuing the upward trend that began in August. Volume was up 7.8% compared with the same month last year. Meanwhile, a total of 447,938 passengers flew with the airline in November, little change from the number in 2005.

"There was a slight decrease in leisure travel in November, due to traditional factors," said Dragonair CEO Kenny Tang. "However, traffic to and from destinations in the China Mainland remained strong, with the growth recorded on secondary routes particularly impressive.

"Overall numbers are expected to rise again in December given that it is one of the busiest months for travel in the year. It should be helped by the introduction of a daily service to Phuket on December 15."

The 38,318 tonnes of cargo carried in November, meanwhile, also represented a 7.4% increase month-on-month.

"Cargo had an excellent month in November, with continued growth momentum from the China Mainland market," Mr Tang said. "Shipments were particularly strong from Shanghai and Xiamen.

"We also added three extra freighter flights to New York to meet the traditional surge in demand ahead of the end of the year. In addition, we operated six charter flights to fly a record 600 tonnes of Beaujolais Nouveau wine from Amsterdam and Frankfurt to Japan and Taiwan.

"We expect the strong demand to continue in December and in 2007, which is why we shall be adding two more freighter flights a week to Shanghai from January 1, taking the number of flights each week to 17."

HKIA Sees Robust Growth in Passenger and Cargo Traffic in November

(HONG KONG, 17 December 2006) - Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) continues to record robust growth in passenger and cargo throughput in November, with passenger traffic reaching 3.67 million, a 9% increase from the same period last year.

Thanks to the upbeat economy in the region, the growth was mainly due to the increase in visitor traffic, especially those from the Chinese Mainland and Southeast Asia. During the traditional cargo peak time of November, cargo throughput grew to 342,000 tonnes, up 7.2% year-on-year. Aircraft movements also recorded a healthy growth of 3.8%, to 23,790 movements.

Passenger traffic is expected to be particularly busy during the Christmas and New Year period. Just a week away from Christmas, Airport Management Director of the Airport Authority Hong Kong Mr Howard Eng said, "The airport community is excited about welcoming travellers, shoppers, meeters and greeters alike with a whole range of events and activities especially prepared for the festive season.

"Visitors and travellers will enjoy the holiday fun and Christmas spirit brought by carol singers, musicians, kid dancers, ballet dancers and story tellers. Santa Claus will greet them with gifts and children will have fun at the handicraft workshop. Christmas is a very special season of the year and we at HKIA are committed to giving every passenger and customer a warm experience filled with fond memories."

In the past 12 months, passenger traffic rose to 44.1 million, representing a rise of 8.9% over the same period last year. Cargo throughput and aircraft movements rose 5.9% and 7.2%, to 3.6 million and 279,730 respectively.

HKIA and HXIA Officially Launch Joint Venture Company
AA Press Release

(Hong Kong, 18 December 2006) -The Chinese-foreign joint venture company (JV) formed by Hangzhou Xiaoshan International Airport Co. Ltd and Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA) today announced its inauguration in Hangzhou after completing all official approval procedures and capital injection. The JV is tasked to make Hangzhou Xiaoshan International Airport a world-class airport by enhancing operation efficiency, improving service quality and management standards, and carrying out the RMB6.8 billion second phase expansion.

The National Development and Reform Commission has approved HXIA's second phase expansion plan in August 2006. Target for completion by 2011, the plan includes the construction of a 4F-grade runway which is able to accommodate super jumbos like A380, a new international passenger terminal, the second domestic passenger terminal and other related facilities. The expansion will boost HXIA's annual handling capacity to 25.6 million passengers, 500,000 tonnes of cargo and 260,000 aircraft movements by 2015.

HXIA is the first civilian airport in the Chinese Mainland with direct foreign investment. The successful launch of the joint venture is an important initiative of the Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement (CEPA) signed between Zhejiang and Hong Kong, and a major milestone in the reformation of China's civilian airport industry.

Since the signing of the JV agreement in April last year, the number of flights serving Hong Kong-Hangzhou has more than doubled, to 140 from around 60 a week.

Riding on the Mainland's economic reform and open-door policy, Zhejiang is one of the fastest growing provinces in China. AA Chairman Dr Victor Fung said,"CEPA has laid a very good foundation for the co-operation between Hong Kong and Mainland companies. HKIA and HXIA are located in the two economic powerhouses of China - the Pearl River Delta (PRD) and the Yangtze River Delta (YRD). The JV will greatly enhance the competitiveness of the two airports by combining Hong Kong's sprawling international network with Hangzhou's extensive domestic coverage. It will also foster closer economic and cultural ties between YRD and PRD, and promote long-term prosperity of the two regions."

Mr Chen Haimei, Chairman of HXIA Co. Ltd, believed that the inauguration of the JV will provide a new platform for the development of the two airports. He said, "The partnership with HKIA will bring capital, advanced airport management expertise and know-how, and an extensive international air network to HXIA. This will further improve the management quality of HXIA and contribute to its second phase development." Mr Chen also expressed his warmest welcome to Mr Eric Wong from AA for taking up the position as General Manager of HXIA. Mr Wong, who has profound experience in airport management, is the first Hong Kong citizen to manage a Mainland airport.

Dr David J Pang, AA's Chief Executive Officer, pointed out that YRD's civil aviation market has entered a high growth period thanks to the region's rising living standard and its focus on developing high value-added industries. As an integral part of the YRD economic zone, Hangzhou is an excellent bridgehead for Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) to reach out to the region's enormous passenger and cargo sources.

"We are confident that the two airports will better serve the need of the region's economic growth by strengthening our competitiveness through sharing experience and leveraging each other's competitive advantages. Our partnership can enable us to fully capture the potential of a robust market environment through strengthening a safe, secure and well-run airport," said Dr Pang.

Shareholders of Hangzhou and Hong Kong airports signed in Hangzhou the agreement for a capital increase subscription of Hangzhou Xiaoshan International Airport Co Ltd in April 2005 to invite AA to become a strategic investor for the management of HXIA.

Under the agreement, HXIA Co. Ltd will be transformed from a state-owned limited company into a limited liability joint venture company with a registered capital of RMB5,686 million (about HK$5,600 million). The AA now holds 35% equity interest of HXIA Co Ltd by investing RMB1.99 billion (HK$1.9 billion) and has appointed four members to the Board.

Since opening in 2000, HXIA's passenger and cargo throughputs and aircraft movements have been growing at an annual rate of about 30%. In 2005, passenger volume and cargo tonnage rose 28% and 29% over 2004, to 8.09 million and 166,000 tonnes, respectively. HXIA ranks No. 8 among civilian airports in the Mainland and No.3 in Eastern China following Shanghai's Pudong and Hongqiao airports.

There is a long way for Hangzhou airport to grow. It looks like one of those crappy airports when I visited there in last July.

Kazakhstan companies may list on HKEx
13 December 2006
South China Morning Post

Ten Kazakhstan companies preparing to list abroad could potentially find a home on the Hong Kong stock exchange, according to a Kazakh government official.

Arken Arystanov, the chairman of Kazakhstan's Agency for Regulating the Regional Financial Centre of Almaty, the Central Asian nation's capital, said at an investment seminar his agency had sent a draft co-operative agreement to Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing.

The agency plans to allow a special trading floor on the Kazakh exchange where listing rules will be similar to Hong Kong's and London's. Some tax exemptions will apply. Mr Arystanov said the revised rules, to take effect from January 1, could help lure companies from Hong Kong or elsewhere to list in Kazakhstan.

He said barriers to cross-border listings included the absence of direct flights between Hong Kong and Almaty and HKEx's failure to promote itself in Kazakhstan.

Aviation officials of Kazakhstan and Hong Kong are in advanced talks about an air services agreement. Flagship carrier Air Astana hoped to operate the first flights next year, sources said.

HKEx head of business development Lawrence Fok Kwong-man said Kazakh firms preferred London to Hong Kong where the language barrier and cultural differences were greater. But he said HKEx would work harder to promote itself overseas in the next few years.

Four Kazakh firms are listed on London's main board and eight are on the AIM board.

Mr Arystanov said the 10 potential overseas listing candidates included Kazjeldortrans, which operates Russia-Kazakhstan-China rail freight routes. It aims to raise US$200 million and achieve a market capitalisation of US$1 billion.

A Kazakh delegation will meet HKEx chief executive Paul Chow Man-yiu today to discuss cross-border listings.

Airport Authority Hong Kong Unveils 20-year Vision



(HONG KONG, 21 December 2006) - The Airport Authority Hong Kong today released HKIA 2025, a 20-year plan that will guide the development of Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) and ensure the airport continues to contribute to the social and economic development of Hong Kong, the Pearl River Delta (PRD) and the Chinese Mainland as a whole.

"With China's growing global economic influence and Hong Kong's increasing integration with the Mainland, HKIA 2025 positions Hong Kong International Airport as one of the most important gateway hubs of China. HKIA will continue to contribute to the sustainable growth of Hong Kong and its integration with the Mainland," said Airport Authority Chairman Dr Victor Fung.

As a gateway hub, HKIA will participate in the thriving Mainland aviation market, which the General Administration of Civil Aviation of China (CAAC) predicts will approach 1.4 billion passenger trips and 30 million tonnes of cargo by 2020. HKIA will do this by continuing to expand its catchment area into the Pearl River Delta (PRD) and by strengthening its network of Mainland and international destinations. HKIA 2025 estimates that HKIA will serve close to 80 million passengers and handle 8 million tonnes of cargo and 490,000 aircraft movements per year by 2025.

Currently, there are 85 airlines operating at HKIA, connecting Hong Kong with 150 cities worldwide including around 40 mainland destinations. To expand HKIA's catchment area into the PRD, HKIA 2025 supports providing a hassle-free surface connectivity to the Mainland with a seamless convergence of air, road, rail and sea links.

HKIA 2025 also promotes Hong Kong's role as a cargo and logistics hub and the construction of SkyCity, an integrated development that will help make HKIA a destination in its own right. Through the e-airport initiative, HKIA will continue to use new technologies in the most efficient, reliable and cost-effective manner possible.

In addition, HKIA 2025 supports the co-ordinated development of a PRD airport system, a goal that the Airport Authority hopes will optimise the supply of valuable resources, including runway capacity and airspace. This is a particularly pressing issue as the CAAC estimates that by 2020, the five primary civilian airports in the PRD - Hong Kong, Macao, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Zhuhai - will likely see a total of 5,000 aircraft movements each day, more than double the current level.

Regarding enhancing the runway capacity, Airport Authority Chief Executive Officer Dr David J Pang added, "AA will continue to work closely with Civil Aviation Department to maximise the existing capacity and will undergo the feasibility study of constructing the third runway. The decision will give due consideration to stakeholders' opinions and Hong Kong's long-term competitiveness, with a view to maintaining HKIA's role as a leading aviation hub."

"HKIA 2025 acknowledges that airport infrastructure takes years to plan, design and build. It also recognises that airports are as important to economic development today as highways were in the 20th century and railways were in the 19th century. With the support of government, stakeholders, business partners and the community, Hong Kong International Airport will continue to facilitate the development of our city, region and nation," Dr Fung concluded.

Looks like it. SAS has been lacking long haul aircraft for quite some time due to financial problems. The airlines has been showing black numbers the latest years though, and is in the process of getting new planes. The routes that are on highest priority are ARN-PEK, CPH-SFO, CPH-HKG and CPH-DEL.

SAS stopped flying to HKG in 1998, I think.
