Over the past 20 years, HKIA has been recognised as the world’s best airport more than 70 times. It is connected to 220 destinations, including 50 in the Mainland, through around 1,100 daily flights by more than 120 airlines.
In 2017, HKIA handled 72.9 million passengers and 5 million tonnes of cargo, making it the third busiest international passenger airport in the world and the busiest cargo airport for eight consecutive years.
HKIA is expanding into a three-runway system which involves reclaiming 650 hectares of land, and building a 3,800-metre-long runway, a new passenger terminal with 57 parking positions, a new automated people mover system and a baggage handling system. The infrastructure project is one of the largest in Hong Kong which will cater to the long-term air traffic growth at HKIA.
