Hong Kong capacity problems

By Cynthia Claros


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.
