Programme Highlights


Since opening in 1998, Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) has grown into one of the finest and busiest airports in the world with more than 100 airlines flying to about 160 destinations worldwide, including 40 cities in the Mainland.  In 2011, HKIA set new traffic records by managing 54 million passenger trips and more than 330,000 flight movements.  HKIA also retained its busiest cargo airport title by moving 3.9 million tonnes of cargo in 2011. 


In December 2011 the airport broke ground on the HK$10.2 billion Midfield project and in February 2012 unveiled the HK$2.2 billion West Apron development.  In March 2012, Government announced approval, in-principle, that the Airport Authority should adopt the three-runway system as the future development option for its next stage of planning.


Ir Kevin Poole, Deputy Director, Projects, Airport Authority, Hong Kong, will share with us the plans to expand HKIA to meet demand growth over the short, medium and long terms.
