As an international and regional aviation hub, HKIA is welcoming more and more new generation aircraft, such as the B747-8 freighter, the B787 Dreamliner and the A380 superjumbo.

All these new aircraft are the latest Chapter 4 jets which are lighter, quieter, more fuel efficient and generate less carbon emissions. In the future, more environmentally-friendly aircraft are expected to enter service, contributing to a greener HKIA.

The exercise, which involved sea, land and air operations, mobilised over 1,200 participants from the Airport Authority, airlines, government departments and other organisations to simulate an incoming flight crashed on landing at 0500 hours. Large-scale rescue work swung into action immediately.

The Automated People Mover (APM) shuttles passengers between Terminal 1 (T1) and Terminal 2 (T2).

In order to extend the APM service to the permanent SkyPier, which is scheduled to open by end-2009, the airport added eight new APM cars in July 2009. With a total length of 3.8 km, the extended APM system will provide passengers with efficient, reliable and comfortable transportation between the pier and T1, which will only take four minutes when it starts operating.
