Events and activities
The Airport Authority (AA) brought hope to the less fortunate by participating in the Community Chest's "Skip Lunch Day" charity event on 22 March 2012. AA staff supported the event by forgoing their regular lunch on that day to donate towards the organisation's "Services for Street Sleepers and Cage Residents" programme.
To promote a healthy and balanced lifestyle, the AA supported the 2011 Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) Feet of Fire 10km Run, held on 11 December 2011, as title sponsor for the second year. Around 1,250 athletes took part in the competition.
The AA sponsored the Construction Industry Charity Concert, held on 24 November 2011, which raised money for the Construction Charity Fund. The fund provides immediate financial assistance to families of construction workers who have lost their lives in construction-related accidents. The donation also contributes to meaningful causes to provide a safe working environment for workers.
AA staff dressed casual when they took part in the annual Dress Casual Day organised by the Community Chest on 30 September 2011. The AA has always supported numerous charitable organisations to fulfill its corporate social responsibility, and this time was no different with an enthusiastic response from the staff.
