機場爆氣體恐襲驚魂
08/04/2007
太陽報



【本報訊】赤繮角機場收緊攜帶液體上機規定後,昨日發生不明氣體侵襲驚魂,客運大樓行李處理區傳出陣陣易燃氣體氣味,警方及消防處大為緊張,檢查後證實只是一件行李內一架用電油驅動的模型車發出電油味,事件沒有可疑。

模型車發出電油味
昨晚七時許,客運大樓二樓離境大堂禁區內的行李處理區工作人員,聞到陣陣易燃氣體氣味由行李傳出,職員憂慮有恐怖襲襲,於是通知上司報警,多輛消防車及救護車到場戒備,大批警員封鎖現場調查,發現氣味由其中一件行李傳出,該件行李屬於一名乘南非航空公司班機往約翰內斯堡的旅客所有,行李內載有一架用電油驅動的小模型車,疑有電油殘存揮發,發出氣味。

機管局發言人表示,由於事發現場為禁區內的行李處理區,並無旅客,故毋須疏散,事件並無影響機場運作,該名旅客所搭的航機原定在昨晚十一時五十分起飛,至於有電油殘漬的模型車是否可以載在行李登機,由航空公司決定。

本港機場三月二十一日開始實施新保安規定,限制所有旅客只可攜帶一百毫升容量的液體上機。

Basically, some staff members smelled a gaseous odor and police and fire authorities were alerted. Some said that they suspected a possible terrorist attack. They later found the source of the smell in the luggage of a South African airways flight to Johannesburg. The car was driven by gas/petrol and odors were leaking out. The passengers continued on their flight. The Airport Authority HK also wishes to remind passengers about the 100ml limit to carry-on liquids.

hey guys, question. Are you allowed to take pictures inside the airport? (set up a tripod and take pictures, or do you have to do it covertly?)

I don't see why you wouldn't be allowed... except at the immigration area and security areas such as baggage check / screening.

I doubt it. The airport is quite busy with people, so an AA official will likely approach you if you set up a tripod.

As long as you aren't setting it in the middle of the walk and/or distrubing others travellers, I don't see the reason the HKIA staff would stop you from doing so.

In immigartion and security check-point, there are signs specifically saying you can't take pictures there, so I would think you can take picture anywhere else that doesn't have a sign in the area.

Just don't take any pictures near sensitive areas, like immigration (you're not allowed to anyways) or of any police patrols. But you could always take a pic of the bathrooms-they're so spacious, modern, and clean!

BUSAN FLIGHTS TO INCREASE TO DAILY FROM JULY
11 April 2007


(HONG KONG) Dragonair will increase the number of flights to Busan, South Korea, from three times a week to daily from July 1, subject to government approval, to meet market demand.

"We have been seeing strong demand on our Busan route since its launch in January," said CEO Kenny Tang. "The performance of the route over the Lunar New Year period and the Easter holidays was particularly good, with load factors on return flights from Busan at close to 100 per cent."

Dragonair's new schedule to Busan will be as follows:

Route Flight Departs Arrives Days
Hong Kong/Busan KA300 14:30 19:05 Daily
Busan/Hong Kong KA301 20:05 22:25 Daily


"We shall be introducing Korean cabin crew on our Busan flights in early May in order to make our Korean passengers feel more at home, and this is expected to help boost demand ex-Busan," said Mr Tang. "At the same time, awareness in Hong Kong of Busan as a business and leisure destination is growing, and is expected to help underpin future growth."

HKIA Set New Traffic Records

(HONG KONG, 15 April 2007) - Propelled by steady regional and international economic expansion and the surging demand for air transport services, Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) set record in all air traffic figures in the financial year 2006/07.

HKIA handled over 45 million passengers and 3.57 million tonnes of cargo, up 8.5% and 2.8% respectively over financial year 2005/06. Boosted by the continuously increasing demand for air traffic, aircraft movement reached 283,000, a 4.8% growth compared to the same period last year.

Airport Authority Hong Kong Commercial Director Mr Hans Bakker said, "To maintain our competitiveness as a regional and international cargo hub, HKIA continues to strengthen its air transport network by adding new destinations and airlines.


"We are delighted to announce that Yangtze River Express Airlines, a Shanghai based all-cargo carrier, will commence its services on April 17, increasing the total number of airlines operating at HKIA to 86." Mr Bakker added, "The new airline will start its five times weekly service flying the Hong Kong-Hangzhou-Qingdao route."

HKIA handled 3.83 million passengers and 24,130 aircraft movements in March, up 8.4% and 2.3% respectively over the same period last year. The cargo throughput in March dropped 5.4% as compared to the same period last year, to 303,000 tonnes.

HK Airport Fiscal 2006 Passengers Up 8.5%; Cargo Up 2.8%
15 April 2007

HONG KONG (Dow Jones)--Hong Kong's airport authority said Monday the city's international airport posted an 8.5% increase in passenger numbers in the fiscal year ended March 2007, because of increased travel demand from Hong Kong and mainland China.

Airport Authority Hong Kong, which operates the airport, said passengers rose to a record 45.12 million in the year ended March 31, 2007, while cargo traffic rose 2.8% to a record 3.57 million metric tons.

It didn't give last year's figures in the statement.

Total aircraft movements for the fiscal year rose 4.8% to 283,040.

In March, the international airport handled 3.83 million passengers, up 8.4% from a year earlier.

Cargo traffic, however, fell 5.4% from a year earlier to 303,000 tons.

The statement didn't explain the fall in cargo traffic in March.

Opened in 1998, Hong Kong International Airport operates more than 5,000 flights a week, with a capacity to handle 45 million passengers a year. The Hong Kong government owns 100% of the airport authority.
