The Airport Authority (AA) has developed medium- and long-term plans to boost Hong Kong International Airport's (HKIA) handling capacity.
The AA is currently developing the Midfield. Once this is completed by the end of 2015, HKIA will be able to serve an additional ten million passengers a year.
The HK$10.2 billion Midfield project includes:
- A 105,000-square-metre concourse;
- 20 parking stands;
- Extension of the automated people mover (APM) connecting the Midfield with Terminal 1 and other passenger facilities; and
- A cross-field taxiway.
The HK$2.5 billion apron expansion will be completed in phases by the end of 2014. It includes:
- 28 parking stands; and
- A cross-runway vehicular tunnel linking to the cargo area.
