To meet HKIA's medium-term growth demand, the Airport Authority (AA) is investing over HK$12 billion to construct new facilities.
Located west of Terminal 1 between the two existing runways, the Midfield has an area of 410,000 square metres. Upon completion of the Midfield development by the end of 2015, HKIA will be able to handle 10 million more passengers each year.
The over HK$10 billion Midfield project includes:
- A 105,000-square-metre concourse
- 20 parking stands
- Extension of the automated people mover (APM) system connecting the Midfield with Terminal 1 and other passenger facilities
- A cross-field taxiway
West Apron Expansion
Scheduled for completion by the end of 2014, the over HK$2.5 billion project involves the construction of:
- 28 parking stands
- A cross-runway vehicular tunnel linking the cargo area in the south
- Other related supporting facilities
Upon completion of the above projects and the remaining Midfield development, the airside will not have any unused land for further large-scale development.
