During this year, the Hong Kong CAA has issued a couple of warnings to operators to stick carefully to their allocated slots, but it’s not making much of a difference to operations there. We have this report from a reader, who says:
- The slot allocation is troublesome. If you’re lucky, you will obtain a slot within a day or so, but it is unlikely to be for the time that you want.
- Weekends are busier times and slot requests are often denied, making operations difficult.
- The parking allocation in front of the BAC ramp changed as well, making it more limiting – they established a 3m separation rule.
- Outlying positions allow for Pax services, but you still require push back and there are only 2 spots from where you can depart.
- HKBAC is obtaining their own approval now for towing.
If you have any experiences to share, let us know.
