HKIA Records Continuous Growth in Cargo Traffic in August
Press Release Excerpt

(HONG KONG, 10 September 2021, 1700hrs) – Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA) today released the traffic figures for Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) for August 2021. During the month, cargo throughput recorded a year-on-year increase of 15.5% to 429,000 tonnes. All three cargo categories – namely imports, exports and transshipments – recorded double-digit growth at HKIA in August. Cargo to and from North America and Southeast Asia experienced the most significant increases during the month.

Meanwhile, the airport handled 222,000 passengers and 12,845 flight movements, surging by 164.9% and 28.4%, respectively, from the low base in the same month last year. HKIA handled more than 7,000 passengers daily during the month, due to a significant increase in outbound transfer passengers from Mainland China. The month’s passenger traffic amounted to around 4% of pre-pandemic levels in 2019.

Over the first eight months of the year, cargo throughput saw 12.4% growth to 3.2 million tonnes. Passenger throughput and flight movements reported declines of 91.6% and 23.3%, to 713,000 passengers and 87,510, respectively.

Geodis Air Network A330 made it to Hong Kong. That aircraft is on a special charter and normally does ORD AMS ORD with a stop in London.

Locked in hotels: Hong Kong's COVID-19 rules take mental toll on Cathay pilots
Reuters Excerpt
Nov 26, 2021

One of Asia's largest airlines, Cathay Pacific, is facing a revolt from pilots who say Hong Kong's tough quarantine rules under its zero-COVID policies are endangering their mental health, leading to rising stress and resignations.

Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd (0293.HK) last week fired three pilots who breached company rules by leaving their hotel rooms during a layover in Frankfurt and later tested positive for Covid-19.

The government responded by forcing more than 270 people, including school children linked to their families, into tiny quarters at a state quarantine camp.

Some pilots declared themselves unfit to fly for their first rostered duties upon release.

The extreme example of pandemic-related precautions under China's zero-Covid policy highlights the difficult working conditions facing Cathay pilots, all fully vaccinated, even as other Asian countries slowly reopen.

Cathay rivals including Australia's Qantas Airways Ltd (QAN.AX) have begun unwinding strict layover policies but the Hong Kong government is tightening rules further in line with the mainland, hoping to convince Beijing to allow cross-border travel.

Cathay Says Liquidity Healthy, Too Early to Assess Omicron Jolt
Bloomberg Excerpt
Dec 1, 2021

Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd. said it’s maintaining a healthy level of liquidity after bringing down cash burn, helped in large part by strong cargo operations while passenger capacity remains restricted by the pandemic.

Ready cash reserves stood at HK$31.7 billion ($4.1 billion) as of Oct. 31, more than twice the level in June last year when Cathay was burning through as much as HK$3 billion a month, the airline said in an update to analysts Wednesday. The business is now at around breakeven, it said.

Chief Financial Officer Rebecca Sharpe said Cathay may consider additional financing opportunities but it wasn’t yet possible to say if a HK$7.8 billion bridging loan from the Hong Kong government would be drawn down or extended again.

Hong Kong pilots to be barred from leaving home for 3 days in tougher surveillance system, as Cathay Pacific decries ‘endless’ rules
South China Morning Post Excerpt
Dec 23, 2021

Hong Kong will further clamp down on Cathay Pacific’s quarantine-exempt pilots, forbidding them from leaving their homes to buy food and perform other essential tasks in their first three days of Covid-19 surveillance, the Post has learned.

The airline is also preparing for a mid-February launch of “China bubble” flights, with the expectation that dedicated crew operating the services will be subject to less stringent testing and surveillance requirements.

Pilots undergoing the mandatory seven days of enhanced medical surveillance (EMS) on arrival in Hong Kong are currently allowed to leave their accommodation for solo exercise, purchasing food and running other errands.

Hong Kong is increasingly shut off as inbound flights dwindle
The Standard Excerpt
Dec 31, 2021

Hong Kong is becoming increasingly shut off from the outside world because of its strict Covid-19 policies as the city imposes a raft of flight bans and airlines slash inbound services.

Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd. has almost halved the number of flights into Hong Kong from outside China next month, according to aviation data company Cirium, in the wake of tougher quarantine restrictions on flight crew. The city’s marquee carrier has scheduled just 150 inbound services in January, the lowest monthly total since May. Before the pandemic, the figure was close to 4,000.

Hong Kong has been conforming to China’s Covid-zero strategy as the city seeks to reestablish quarantine-free travel with the mainland. Authorities have imposed some of the world’s most stringent travel rules, with overseas visitors required to quarantine for up to three weeks. Concerns are now mounting Hong Kong will be left behind as other major cities attempt to live with Covid as endemic.

Hong Kong bans transit passengers from 153 countries
The Standard Excerpt
Jan 14, 2022

Passengers from more than 150 nations will be banned from transiting through Hong Kong, the Airport Authority said Friday, in the latest tightening of the city's strict anti-virus travel measures.

The move deepens the city's global isolation as the city pursues a staunch zero-Covid policy, and creates new headaches for airlines -- some of which have begun avoiding the Chinese territory because of its strict quarantine rules.

Hong Kong ranks territories into categories based on how widespread their Covid-19 infections are, with 153 countries currently classified as Group A -- from which arrivals must spend 21 days in quarantine.

New Cathay Rival Considering Possible $1.8 Billion Plane Order
Bloomberg Excerpt
Jan 17, 2022

A new Hong Kong-based airline with ties to Beijing is considering ordering up to 30 narrow-body jets from either Boeing Co. or Airbus SE as it tries to establish itself in a market dominated by Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd.

Greater Bay Airlines, which is awaiting final approval to operate commercial passenger flights out of Hong Kong, is assessing whether to opt for Boeing’s 737 Max 10 model jets or Airbus’s A321neos, a person with direct knowledge of the plan said. Such an order could amount to as much as $1.77 billion, according to calculations by Bloomberg News and Avitas Inc. using current aircraft prices.

The carrier, founded by property magnate Bill Wong, is in talks with both Boeing and Airbus, according the person, who asked not to be identified as the matter is private. The timing and eventual size of the order depends on the Covid-19 situation in Hong Kong, the person said.

Bonuses for pilots to get more planes in air
The Standard Excerpt
Jan 20, 2022

Cathay Pacific Airways is offering bonuses of nearly HK$100,000 to pilots who are willing to fly at least four closed-loop flights that fall under the strict quarantine regime in a bid to get more planes in the air.

Captains will get HK$20,000 in their first close-looped flight. The bonus will increase to HK$22,000 on their second closed-loop flight and HK$25,000 for their third, rising to HK$29,000 for their fourth, according to a staff memo and confirmed by the airline's press office.

That means captains will get an accumulated bonus of HK$96,000 for four closed-loop flights.
