Special Announcement

The building of the third runway is divided into three phases: planning, approval and implementation.

In the planning phase, the Airport Authority (AA) will commission statutory Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) studies and study funding options. A number of approvals from the Government is needed before actual project implementation – land formation and construction of related facilities – can begin. The entire project is estimated to take about 11 years before the three-runway system is commissioned in 2023.
