Cadet training takes off in bid to fill pilot slots
June 9, 2017
South China Morning Post Excerpt

A lack of available qualified pilots has pushed Hong Kong Airlines to launch its own cadet pilot programme, in an effort to fill vacancies for its expanding fleet of aircraft.

With the mainland-owned airline expecting to increase its fleet size to 50 by the end of 2019 from 33 at present, it is partnering with a flight academy to begin training eight to 15 candidates this year.

Candidates will go through a 70-week training course, 15 weeks longer than its bigger rival Cathay Pacific Airways’ existing training programme.

The programme allows people with no flight experience to apply, and it costs Hong Kong Airlines about HK$1 million for each candidate.

“This is going to support career establishment of a new generation in Hong Kong,” Hong Kong Airlines vice-chairman Tang King-shing said at a three-day job expo which drew 4,000 job seekers on Friday. Tang retired in 2011 as the city’s police commissioner.

The training centre, which is located in New Zealand, is run by L3 Commercial Training Solutions.

Now I hope it will fly to San Francisco on board their new A350, aside from their upcoming flight to Los Angeles.

Lack of space in Hong Kong airport forces HK Express to take expansion overseas
Budget carrier launches new flight route under an arrangement known as fifth freedom, where it will ferry passengers directly from Nagoya in Japan to Guam
August 2, 2017
South China Morning Post Excerpt

As Hong Kong International Airport nears full capacity, with little room for airlines to expand, local budget carrier HK Express has been forced to take its growth abroad, launching its first flight route between two cities outside Hong Kong.

The low-cost carrier on Wednesday announced new direct flights from Nagoya in Japan to Guam in the Western Pacific, which will start in October, in an arrangement known as “fifth freedom”. It added that it was pursuing more of such fifth-freedom flights, where carriers can pick up passengers at a destination which is not in their country of origin and disembark them at a third location.

Aviation experts and lawmakers see the move as another setback for the city’s aviation hub status, urging officials to start adding more capacity at Hong Kong’s airport.

“HK Express has long lamented the lack of available slots, and has made no secret that it may have to expand outside ... due to the lack of slots,” said Ellis Taylor, Asia finance editor at aviation news portal FlightGlobal.

Over the past 12 months, the airline flew 3.36 million passengers, representing a growth of 22.6 percent from the previous 12 months.

Hong Kong Airlines to begin flying to U.S. mainland with new Airbus A350s
USA TODAY Excerpt
Aug. 15, 2017

The line-up of international airlines flying to the U.S. mainland will grow this winter.

The latest to announce service is Hong Kong Airlines, which will launch non-stop flights between Los Angeles and Hong Kong on Dec. 18 on Airbus A350 aircraft. The airline will begin with four round-trip flights a week before moving to daily service on Jan. 16.

News of the L.A. route comes less than two months after Hong Kong Airlines began flying from Vancouver, it’s first North American destination.

Beyond its new North American routes, Hong Kong Airlines -- founded in 2006 -- flies from its Hong Kong hub to more than 30 destinations across Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

“Following the success of the Vancouver route, we are excited to launch our first route in the continental United States and further expand our international network,” George Liu, Hong Kong Airlines’ chief marketing officer, said in a statement.

Hong Kong Airlines adds major routes, in new threat to Cathay Pacific
City’s third-largest airline, which enjoys mainland backing, to fly to London, San Francisco and New York
September 2, 2017
South China Morning Post Excerpt

Hong Kong travellers will have wider options for long-haul flights, and airlines in the city will face even fiercer competition, as Hong Kong Airlines widens its global reach in a major effort to squeeze arch-rival Cathay Pacific Airways.

Hong Kong’s third-largest airline announced on Friday plans to launch new flights next year, going head to head with local top dog Cathay Pacific on routes to London, San Francisco and New York.

The mainland-backed airline got its hands on the first of 21 state-of-the-art Airbus A350 planes on Friday, and unveiled a new premium airport lounge in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong Express announces replacement flights for travellers hit by cancellations
Number of ‘golden week’ flights to Japan and South Korea cancelled down from 18 to 14
Sept. 30, 2017
South China Morning Post Excerpt

Thousands of travellers affected by the sudden cancellations of Hong Kong Express flights can expect a replacement or refund within a day, the budget airline announced on Saturday morning.

But the carrier’s remedial action failed to satisfy the legislator for the city’s tourism industry, who said it was being irresponsible and risked damaging the city’s image.

The cancellations, apparently sparked by a staff shortage, came to light on Friday and were set to ruin many Hongkongers’ travel plans for the “golden week” of October public holidays.

In an announcement on its website on Saturday morning, the company said it had authorised two local travel agencies to book new flights for affected passengers. The companies were Hong Thai Travel Services and Sunflower Travel.

If passengers, who were told to expect an email from one of the agencies within 24 hours, are not satisfied with the new arrangement, they can choose a new flight within two weeks of the original, or a full refund, according to the announcement.

It transpired on Friday that the flights – from Hong Kong to Osaka and Nagoya, in Japan, and Seoul, South Korea – during next week’s “golden week”, were cancelled.

An initial count of 18 cancellations was later lowered to 14.

Up to 2,000 people, including Hongkongers and mainlanders transiting in the city, were set to be affected, Yiu Si-wing, legislator for the tourism sector, said.

Airline licence body warns Hong Kong Express of possible action over ‘golden week’ cancellations
Budget carrier apologises to passengers affected, but says it helped all 2,070 affected book alternative flights, or gave them a refund
October 1, 2017
South China Morning Post Excerpt

The body that licenses airlines in Hong Kong has warned of possible action against Hong Kong Express over its raft of late-notice “golden week” cancellations.

That came as the budget carrier admitted the debacle was partly due to an exodus of safety trainers two months ago, that had affected its number of qualified crew members and pilots.

The Air Transport Licensing Authority demanded a report, explaining the disruptive cancellations, from the airline within a week.

Transport minister Frank Chan Fan, who criticised HK Express for having acted “irresponsibly”, also hinted the airline could have breached the terms of its licence.

The carrier made a public apology on Sunday, two days after it emerged it had pulled 18 regular flights between Hong Kong and Osaka, Nagoya and Seoul, scheduled to fly from October 1 to 8.

What is the fallout from the Hong Kong Express ‘golden week’ cancellations debacle?
City’s sole budget carrier endures a tough week, with manpower shortage exposed
October 5 2017
South China Morning Post Excerpt

The recent Hong Kong Express cancellations, which hit last week and threatened the travel plans of thousands over the “golden week” holiday, have exposed some fundamental operation and management weaknesses at the airline. It has also pushed staff to organise, with workers urging the company to improve conditions and open talks about industrial issues.

How many local budget airlines are there in Hong Kong?

Launched in October 2013, Hong Kong Express is the city’s sole budget airline, with a fleet of 21 planes. Jetstar Hong Kong, another budget carrier, had been trying to get off the ground since 2012, but Hong Kong authorities finally rejected its licence application in 2015. And the city’s first low-cost carrier Oasis Hong Kong, which operated long-haul flights from Hong Kong to London and Vancouver, shut down in 2008, after only 18 months.

But despite being the city’s only low-cost airline, HK Express faces increasingly fierce competition from regional budget rivals operating in Hong Kong, such as Singapore’s Tiger Airways, Japan’s Vanilla Air and China’s Spring Airlines. And the competition may soon get fiercer, with Hong Kong’s flagship carrier Cathay Pacific Airways considering joining the game by offering discount fares that could match those of low-cost operators.

What happened last week, and what did it expose?

HK Express cancelled 18 flights between Hong Kong and three cities in Japan and South Korea from October 1 to October 8, affecting thousands of passengers travelling during the Chinese National Day “golden week” holiday.

Managers admitted the cancellations were due to an exodus of safety trainers two months ago, that had affected its number of qualified crew and pilots. But they said they had helped all 2,070 affected passengers book alternative flights, or given them refunds.

The Air Transport Licensing Authority, which licenses airlines in Hong Kong, warned of possible action against the carrier, and transport minister Frank Chan Fan hinted the airline could have breached the terms of its licence.
The debacle has exposed a string of problems at the airline. Besides manpower problems, crew members have long complained about poor management such as a tendency to operate skeleton staff rosters and overbooking flights.

Now more than half of its 370 Hong Kong cabin crew are preparing to join the Cabin Attendants Union, a catch-all group for staff at smaller carriers and contractors who aren’t numerous enough to run their own independent union.

What protection do consumers have in the event of a cancellation?


There is no law in Hong Kong to protect consumers hit by flight cancellations. Passengers largely rely on travel insurance for refunds.

And while people are lured by budget airlines’ lower fares, the city’s consumer watchdog has warned that flying with them could end up costing more than flying with higher-end carriers.

With that announcement, it will face competition against...

- Cathay Pacific (3x daily)
- Singapore Airlines (1x daily)
- United Airlines (1x daily)

So, here's the (possible) schedule grid for HKG-SFO come mid-August 2018:

CX872 HKG0030 – 2205-1SFO 77W D
UA862 HKG1115 – 0900SFO 77W D
HX060 HKG1220 – 1015SFO 359 D
CX870 HKG1415 – 1150SFO 77W D
CX892 HKG1900 – 1640SFO 359 D
SQ002 HKG2330 – 2115SFO 77W D

CX873 SFO0050 – 0610+1HKG 77W D
SQ001 SFO0115 – 0635+1HKG 77W D
CX893 SFO0125 – 0640+1HKG 359 D
HX061 SFO1200 – 1725+1HKG 359 D
UA869 SFO1310 – 1845+1HKG 77W D
CX879 SFO1330 – 1855+1HKG 77W D

SFO could then beat out LAX in terms of number of daily rotations between California and Hong Kong.

Hong Kong Airlines Signs Codeshare Agreement with Westjet
Sept. 22, 2017
Press Release Excerpt

Hong Kong Airlines and WestJet announced today that they have entered into a codeshare agreement, which sees Hong Kong Airline placing its HX marketing code on WestJet-operated flights. The two carriers are building on an existing interline agreement put in place earlier this year.

Mr Li Dianchun, Chief Commercial Officer, Hong Kong Airlines said, “Our newly launched daily service between Hong Kong and Vancouver has been a great success, and this codeshare agreement with WestJet, which extends our network in Canada beyond Vancouver towards Edmonton, Calgary and Toronto is the logical next step. Passengers flying with Hong Kong Airlines can now enjoy a seamless connection experience onto a WestJet flight.”

"We welcome Hong Kong Airlines as our newest codeshare partner and congratulate them on their inaugural service to Vancouver in June of this year;” said Mr Ed Sims, WestJet Executive Vice-President, Commercial. “This codeshare agreement provides guests on both sides of the Pacific more choice and opportunity to experience excellent service and travel globally. We look forward to welcoming Hong Kong Airline’s guests on board and providing them with our caring WestJet service.”

Hong Kong Airlines’ daily Hong Kong-Vancouver service will allow guests to connect onto select WestJet flights from Vancouver to Calgary, Edmonton and Toronto.
