SQ's Use Of Gates At HK Airport

Tue Jul 29, 2003 9:33 pm

Tonight I looked at HK Airport's website and the flight info stated that SQ865 at 6.30pm used gate 1. I thought gates 1-4 were reserved for Cathay. Can anyone explain why SQ is using gate 1?

I can confirm, CX uses gate 1, I went out of there before. Maybe they have a sort of codeshare. Or the gate was unused and the airport said they could use it. Or their jetway was broken..?

CX has office near gate 1. the departure time of SQ865 isn't the peak hour. so SQ can be assigned for that gate. I think starting from August, CX will resume 90% of normal flight schedule and SQ will not have a chance to park there anymore.

I was onboard 865 on the 10th July and it was, suprisingly Gate 1.

Well the gates are mainly used for CX but I doubt CX "purchased" the gates for their private use.

SQ flights mainly park at Gate 21-25, and sometimes 15, 17 and 19.
