A Hong Kong Airlines flight from Beijing made an emergency landing in the mainland after the captain was told of a bomb threat.

The plane, an Airbus A330-200 carrying 295 passengers and crew, landed safely in Wuhan with the flight just over an hour from Hong Kong.

News of the bomb scare was revealed by a female passenger using the handle "sqshane" on Weibo at about 3.50pm, along with five photos of the incident.

The budget carrier's flight HX337 took off from Beijing at 12.08pm and was scheduled to arrive in Hong Kong at 3.45pm.

About two hours into the flight the captain received a bomb threat report from the ground.

The captain reportedly told passengers: "The security system has some problems."

The aircraft made an emergency landing at Tianhe International Airport at about 2.29pm.

All those on board were told to leave the aircraft without even their wallets and passports and go through security checks twice.

Meanwhile, the police began searching for an unclaimed bag on the aircraft. The black bag, according to the passenger, was eventually found in the aircraft's 37th row.

HK Express Records 102% Passenger Growth in Q1 2015
The Airline has Achieved Outstanding Profitability
Press Release Excerpt



Hong Kong, 23 April, 2015

HK Express, Hong Kong’s low-fare airline, has revealed that it achieved significant year-on-year growth in terms of passenger numbers for the first quarter of 2015 and the month of March.

The airline has carried close to 500,000 passengers in the first quarter of 2015, which represents a 102% growth in the same period compared to 2014. Total passengers for March amounted to 168,336, which is an increase of 96% in the same month compared to last year.

Andrew Cowen, CEO of HK Express said, “North-Asia continued to be a key driver of growth for HK Express. The dramatic leap in passenger numbers attests to the success of our strategy to offer consistently affordable fares that make air travel accessible to everyone.“

“We are also delighted to announce HK Express has achieved outstanding profitability in the first quarter of 2015. This success can be attributed to a number of factors including the increase in our fleet size to ten aircraft, the benefits of restructuring to low-cost carrier business model and the strong market demand for low-fare travel, and reduction of fuel price. “Cowen added.

Hong Kong low-cost air travel expert eying high results
3 July 2015
South China Morning Post Excerpt







Andrew Cowen, chief executive of the city's sole budget carrier, Hong Kong Express, is closer than ever to bringing the airline to its first year in the black now that Jetstar Hong Kong is out of the game of offering cheap flights to those travelling on a budget.

“I'd like to be further through the year before saying we will secure profitability for the year, but it's been great so far … we've been profitable since December,” a cautious Cowen said in an interview with the South China Morning Post. “Of course, low fuel price was a boost.”

Hong Kong Express is now left to enjoy a monopoly in offering low-fare flights from its homebase after the government rejected Jetstar Hong Kong's two-year-long bid for a licence last month. It just needs to compete with 17 foreign budget carriers that fly here from their bases and the city's full-service carriers Cathay Pacific and Dragonair, as well as its sister airline Hong Kong Airlines, which is also owned by HNA Group.

Cowen, who said he “converted” to the low-cost model in 1999, has spent the past 16 years setting up and running budget airlines in Britain, the Middle East and Asia, including most recently Peach Aviation in Japan before he was brought in to help Hong Kong Express transform from a full-service airline to the low-cost model in 2013.

While the debundling of services to give customers choices was at the core of the no-frills model, giving them incentives to book directly and book in advance was essential to enhancing cash flow and flight planning for budget airlines, Cowen said. He declined to disclose Hong Kong Express's average advance booking period because the information is commercially sensitive, but said it was now “twice as long” as before, while the average direct booking rate was higher than 80 per cent compared with below 15 per cent before the airline's low-cost transformation.

In Hong Kong the market share of airlines offering affordable air travel remains below 10 per cent, compared with around 60 per cent in Southeast Asia.

“The biggest impediments is slots,” said Cowen, who has expressed strong support for the third runway but opposes the imposition of an additional levy on passengers, especially a flat one which would affect its price-sensitive customers more. “If Hong Kong people decide they don't want a third runway, they have to understand they won't get cheap air travel. And a flat fee disproportionately affects economy travellers, which is the majority of the public.”

Cowen said he planned to grow Hong Kong Express's fleet of 12 A320 aircraft to 25 by 2018, serving 50 destinations.

Hong Kong flights a $10m tourism boost
1 August 2015
Cairns Post Excerpt

HONG KONG Airlines will fly three times a week to Cairns and the Gold Coast early next year for three months during Chinese New Year celebrations.

The carrier, as well as China Eastern Airlines, will operate 89 seasonal flights into Cairns providing 23,000 seats for the annual festivities, which attract more than 20,000 visitors.

Cairns Airport chief executive Kevin Brown said it was the first time Hong Kong Airlines were flying to Australia. The airline will fly direct to the Gold Coast and then on to Cairns.

“Securing this service into Cairns for an extended period that covers the 2016 Chinese New Year is a coup for our destination and the result of a collaborative partnership between Cairns Airport, Gold Coast Airport and Tourism and Events Queensland (TEQ),” he said.

Airport aeronautical general manager Janice Antonson said it coincided with the return of China Eastern’s extended schedule of Chinese New Year seasonal flights from Shanghai starting on January 12.

“This will be a daily service until February 21, and from February 22 to April 30 it will operate three return flights per week,” she said.

Maintains #1 On-Time Airline in Hong Kong

Press Release Excerpt
17 July 2015

This strong demand for HK Express’ low fares enabled profitability to be achieved in the six months to 30 June 2015, for the first time in HK Express’ history and well ahead of target. Continued business expansion and cost reduction initiatives are expected to support continued profits growth through the remainder of 2015.

Airline IPO back amid oil dip
27 July 2015
The Standard Excerpt

Hong Kong Airlines is still pursuing an initial public offering and potential investors find it more attractive amid weak oil prices, insiders said.

It had sought a HK$3.9 billion IPO in September, with shares traded in yuan and Hong Kong dollars.

As the six-month deadline has passed, the listing may be held later this year, according to market sources.

Falling oil prices have made the delay a wise choice, as some institutions and local tycoons have expressed willing to be cornerstone investors as they are optimistic over the carrier, a source said.

Without any fuel hedging, it can benefit from a weak oil price, the person said, unlike bigger airlines that have hedged at higher prices.

West Texas Intermediate crude oil futures price fell to nearly a six- year low in March at US$44.84 (HK$349.75) a barrel, due to concerns that global crude oil supplies are exceeding demand. The recent Iranian nuclear deal also added worries of oversupply. WTI closed at US$48.14 on Friday, losing 21 percent within a month.

But the company is no longer keen on a dual-currency offer, the person added, citing higher costs and signs the days of yuan strengthening may be over.

Founded in 2006, Hong Kong Airlines International reported quick profit growth. Its operating profit in 2013 reached HK$1.05 billion, up 41.2 percent.

Airline factors in delays for mainland trips
3 September 2015
South China Morning Post Excerpt

Hong Kong Airlines changes schedules to help beat punctuality problem, as industry says military must give up airspace for civil flights

A Hong Kong carrier is exploring ways to tackle flight delays caused by the mainland’s air traffic control, but airline management admit the problem will not be solved unless the military releases more airspace for civil aviation.

Captain Jeff Sun Jianfeng, Hong Kong Airlines’ executive vice-president, said delay problems in some mainland cities such as Beijing had become so serious that the airline had factored in expected delay times to its flight schedules.

As an example, Sun said, “It is supposed to take just three hours to fly to Beijing, but we are adding some time to the schedule.”

“We are adding less time to our morning flights because the air traffic situation is better during that time,” he added. “But we are adding more time to our afternoon flights. It can be about 30 minutes.”

Despite allowing for extra time in its official schedules, the airline’s efforts were “not working well because the delays are just too long”, Sun said.

Air traffic restrictions are frequent on the mainland, where only 20 per cent of airspace is available for civil aviation. The rest is tightly controlled by the military.

200 passengers protest cancellation of Hong Kong Airlines flight from Hokkaido
5 October 2015
The Mainichi Excerpt

About 200 passengers booked on a Hong Kong Airlines flight protested against the company for forcing them to stay overnight at New Chitose Airport in Hokkaido on Oct. 3 following cancellation of their flight because of a technical problem, company and other sources said.

The company was unable to promptly secure seats on other flights back to Hong Kong or reserve hotel rooms for the stranded passengers, because the trouble occurred during China's National Day holiday period, and many flights and hotels were booked out.

Hong Kong Airlines Flight 693 was scheduled to leave New Chitose Airport on the outskirts of Sapporo at 4:50 p.m. on Oct. 3, bound for Hong Kong. However, oil was found leaking from the hydraulic system on the aircraft, prompting the airline to cancel the flight.

A dozen or so of the 257 passengers booked on the flight reportedly managed to find accommodation on their own.

The airline asked the other passengers, who, having gone through immigration, were in a restricted area of the airport, to come out of the area, since otherwise it would take a long time to bring them food. However, most of these passengers refused to come out unless they were guaranteed hotel rooms.

When notified that the airline was unable to secure enough accommodation facilities for the passengers, nearly 100 of them protested, chanting and displaying handmade banners with such messages as "Give us water, food and medicine. Save our lives," according to the sources.

They ended up staying overnight at the airport on Oct. 3. Some of them flew to Hong Kong on other flights the next day, but at least 150 others stayed another night, this time at hotels arranged by Hong Kong Airlines.

Hong Kong Airlines looks to fly 6m this year amid slowdown
8 October 2015
China Daily Excerpt

Hong Kong Airlines Ltd expects to transport about 6 million passengers this year despite the drop in the number of visitors to Hong Kong, a top official said.

The carrier's average load factor during the first six months of the year was 82 percent, compared with 78 percent in the same period of 2014, said Sun Jianfeng, executive vice-president of Hong Kong Airlines.

The number will be much higher in the second half, the peak season for the civil aviation industry, Sun said.

He made the remarks even as the tourism industry in Hong Kong reported a lackluster performance during the first six months of the year, with visitor numbers falling 3.8 percent from a year ago, according to data provided by the Hong Kong Tourism Board.

"Our positive performance has been aided by the mainland's booming outbound tourism market," Sun said.

Transfer passengers more than made up for the loss of visitors, Sun said, as a growing number of Chinese people took overseas trips.

Despite being a latecomer in the market, Hong Kong Airlines, which was set up in 2006, has managed to cash in on Hong Kong's importance as a major hub in the Asia region.

Statistics from the Hong Kong Tourism Board show that the number of same-day travelers, who are mainly transfer passengers, rose 8.4 percent year-on-year in the first half of 2015.

New wings fly high for getaways
23 November 2015
China Daily Excerpt

HK's first low-cost air carrier is soaring, reaching profitability and catering to budget travelers, in only its third year of operation, as the company's CEO tells Luo Weiteng.

Amid the eternal crush passengers at Hong Kong International Airport, embarking and disembarking from explorations around the globe, Andrew Cowen, CEO of HK Express, says his path has been one of unceasing exploration.

In 2013, he came to Hong Kong from halfway around the world to embark on an uncertain endeavor to establish the city's first and only low-cost carrier (LCC).

The budget airline, previously a full-service carrier, started its low-cost service with inaugural flights to five destinations, back in October 2013. Since then, HK Express has carried more than three million passengers. It's the eighth air carrier of a career spanning over two decades for the British, now in his forties.

With some 10 years' experience, HK Express, which is part of the HNA Group and a sister carrier of Hainan Airlines and Hong Kong Airlines, has retooled to better meet the demand of local travelers and position the group to meet competition in Hong Kong's emerging low-cost sector.

An avid traveler himself, Cowen has more on his mind than just sightseeing. He's gathering opinions of passengers on the flight. The helmsman of Hong Kong's long-awaited budget airline stands out, wandering up and down the aisles on the airplane. He takes every opportunity to talk with passengers and listen to their feelings and expectations about their travel experiences.

He's observed a growing number of local people, who never have traveled or been earthbound for years, be attracted to no-frills, regional short-haul carriers, especially those who are price sensitive.
