HKIA Named Asia-Pacific's Most Efficient Airport
(HONG KONG, 8 July 2010) – Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) was once again recognised as the most efficient airport in Asia-Pacific. The Air Transport Research Society (ATRS) bestowed on HKIA the "Asia-Pacific Airport Efficiency Excellence Award" at the 2010 ATRS World Conference in Porto, Portugal. This is the fourth consecutive year that HKIA received the honour, proving its long-time consistency in operational efficiency.
The results of the award are obtained after a year-long research by 13 top aviation experts from Europe, Asia-Pacific, North America and Australia, and are published annually in the ATRS Global Airport Benchmarking Report. Airports are benchmarked among peer airports on their performance, productivity, efficiency, unit cost competitiveness and other factors. The report also provides over 30 performance measures identifying effects of the operating environment of the airport, business diversification efforts, outsourcing and service quality.
Stanley Hui Hon-chung, Chief Executive Officer of Airport Authority Hong Kong, saw the award as a great encouragement to the 60,000 strong airport community members whose diligence and professionalism have made HKIA the most efficient in Asia-Pacific. He said, "It is particularly meaningful to us as we operate one of the busiest international passenger airports and the busiest international cargo facilities in the world. We will continue to do our best to provide efficient, reliable, safe and cost effective services to our passengers and other airport users."
