There are plans (looking at my maps in front of me) to turn 14R, 24R, 26R into widebody gates...

The terminal will be extended soon at the northern end to allow REX/Regional to park around the end of the building (where the old taxi rank was), the southern expansion is a fair way off yet...

Evening all,

Cathay Pacific from March 2014 will de-link Adelaide from Melbourne and will begin direct Hong Kong-Adelaide flights. Frequency will decrease from Daily to 4 times a week. Timings will also change, but have not been released as yet. Here is an article about the changes.http://www.ausbt.com.au/cathay-pacific-direct-flights-from-adelaide-cairns-to-hong-kong

Just read that Cathay Pacific is buying 48 new Airbus A350s. It would be fantastic if CX brings the A350 to replace the current A330.

Evening all,

Taken from http://www.ausbt.com.au/china-southern-promises-better-meals-more-aussie-crew, looks like we might see China Southern some time in the near future.

The airline (China Southern) also has its eyes on Adelaide as its next Australian destination, as well as Christchurch in New Zealand.

“But our priority right now is to strengthen the market (in current destinations) before we try other destinations” Tan said.

“If we target 20 percent annual growth, our current load factor on Australian routes is 85 percent, so our next step will be to fill up that unsold 15 percent first.”

Tan is also eying expansion into Europe, but sees the airline’s first priority as increasing flights on its current routes, although a second daily flight between Guangzhou and London is on the cards.

“For example, we can also consider double daily flights for Guangzhou-London, one in the morning and one in the evening, to also provide better connections with our flights from Australia.”

Evening all,

It appears Cathay Pacific are applying to arrive into Adelaide at 5:10am 4 times a week. I would say a departure time around 6:30am. From October to March flights would arrive at 0610. I think it is a great idea by the airline to apply for these slots. It provides great connections once in Hong Kong.

Here is an article from http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/messenger/west-beaches/cathay-pacific-bids-for-permission-to-allow-regular-5am-landings-at-adelaide-airport/story-fni9llx9-1226770704745

RESIDENTS are protesting moves by Cathay Pacific to land planes at Adelaide Airport at 5.10am, saying it could open up the floodgates for more airlines to follow suit.

The airline is seeking a Federal Government dispensation to land its direct flights from Hong Kong four days a week during the airport's 11pm to 6am curfew.

It would be the first time in 12 years that passenger flights have been scheduled to land during the curfew.

Between 1993 and 2001, Qantas operated up to four flights per week arriving from Singapore at 5.05am.

Flights within the airport's shoulder period - one hour before and after the curfew - are restricted to land and take off over the sea, unless weather conditions force them to approach or take off over the city's north.

Netley Residents Association president Bob Owen, also a member of the Adelaide Airport Consultative Committee, said relaxing the curfew could lead to other allowances.

"Where does it stop, that's the bottom line," he said.

"If it's approved and if it does start disturbing people, I think there will be considerable concern.

"The primary concern to the residents is, are they then going to extend the shoulder, so why have the curfew at all?"

Adelaide Airport Limited managing director Mark Young said the new arrangement would fit within the current curfew laws, which allow for a limited number of landings during the curfew shoulder period.

Western Adelaide Coastal Residents Association president Jim Douglas said the application went beyond what the shoulder periods were intended for.

"This is not an emergency situation, it's not an essential situation, it's something over and above that so we would be strongly opposed to it," he said.

"To break the curfew is basically opening up the opportunity for the airport authority to further encroach into the banned hours."

West Torrens Mayor John Trainer said while he did not want the curfew relaxed, he did not expect the Cathay Pacific flights would cause a major disturbance.

"I'm a strong supporter of the curfew as part of the price that aviation pays for having an airport that's only eight kilometres from the CBD, but we do have to apply common sense to things that are on the edge of it," he said.

"Since Cathay Pacific will be bringing them in over the sea, there's unlikely to be too much disturbance."

A Cathay Pacific spokesman said there was demand for a more convenient service for both passengers and freight export.

The Airbus A330 service will allow connections to 17 Chinese destinations and same-day freight delivery from SA to China.

The proposed flight schedule would not breach the curfew during daylight saving time.

A Federal Government spokesman said consideration of the application was still being finalised, but there was nothing under airport regulations which precluded permission being granted.

The curfew applies to aircraft weighing more than 34,000kg, but airlines can apply for exemptions in emergency situations. Breaching curfew is a criminal offence carrying maximum fine of $110,000.

Cathay Pacific's request has been approved.

The Federal Government approved a Cathay Pacific application for four international flights a week to arrive in Adelaide at 5.10am, outside the 11pm to 6am curfew, between April 6 and October 4.

Excuse my ignorance. But to what end? :?
To watch a Boeing 747 land or takeoff.
Is like watching poetry in motion
