Inspiring future aviation leaders

Young people play an important role in cultivating and supporting Hong Kong’s aviation industry. To provide young people with a better understanding of airport operations and Hong Kong International Airport’s (HKIA) future development, we regularly organise airport tours and educational visits, outreach talks, youth activities and partnership programmes at HKIA as an extension to classroom learning.

HKIA Educational Visits

HKIA Educational Visits provide students with an overview of the airport’s day-to-day operations, latest developments and future plans – as well as a tour of the airport’s facilities. Each visit last around 2.5 hours in total, and we welcome students from local secondary and tertiary educational institutions, as well as youth organisations.

The programme is available to groups of up to 40 students from all disciplines on weekdays (Monday to Friday).

 For enquiries, please call Ms Virginia Ng on 2188 7203 or Ms Grace Wong on 2188 7146.

Experiences Sharing

Students participating in HKIA Educational Visits are encouraged to share their experiences through various creative media as part of the HKIA Educational Visit sharing programme. Winners will have a chance to visit the airfield at HKIA. Please click for more details and submissions by previous student participants.

Outreach Talk

Reaching out to the community, we conduct sharing sessions for secondary and tertiary students at their own school campuses. We also introduce to students Hong Kong’s first civil aviation academy, the Hong Kong International Aviation Academy (HKIAA), established and managed by the Airport Authority (AA).

By partnering with local and overseas educational bodies, vocational training institutions and industry practitioners, HKIAA offers a wide range of courses, including beginners’ programmes for new joiners, summer day camps and placements for students. Please click here for more details about HKIAA.

Youth Activities

We partner with neighbouring communities to engage future airport leaders through various youth activities. We also work closely with HKIAA to promote its courses and job opportunities at HKIA to students, teachers and principals.

Partnership Programme

To further widen students' exposure and develop closer communications with schools, we co-operate with other tailored programmes designed for secondary school students, including visits to other airport industry partners.

These include the Education Bureau’s "Business-School Partnership Programme", the Commission on Poverty’s "Future Stars" Programme - Upward Mobility Formula, and the Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce’s "Business-School Partnership Programme". The AA also builds close relationships with school principals and teachers through activities such as airport visits for Secondary School Heads Associations from different districts in Hong Kong.
