Inspiring future aviation leaders

Young people play an important role in cultivating and supporting Hong Kong’s aviation industry. To provide young people with a more in-depth understanding of airport operations and Hong Kong International Airport’s (HKIA) future development, we regularly organise airport tour, educational visit and educational activity as an extension to classroom learning.

  • School Airport Visit
  • College Airport Visit
  • Visit to Airport & Community

College Airport Visit   NEW

Airport visits will be organised for relevant subjects of universities and tertiary institutions. The airport visit will provide college students with an in-depth understanding on the airport’s development projects and the measures in enhancing the handling capacity of existing facilities through adopting enhanced technology and process engineering.  The operations and construction of the infrastructure and systems such as the Three-runway System (3RS) and terminal enhancement works will be introduced.

  • HKIA’s latest operations
  • Future development
  • Environmental initiatives
  • Relevant facilities related to the study subjects

Each visit will last around 2.5 hours in total. In view of the COVID-19 epidemic, the visit is available to a group of up to 20 students on weekdays (Monday to Friday). If the facilities are located in the Airport Restricted Area, participants are required to provide their personal information to process the airport permit and present the required proof of vaccination and/or test result according to the latest preventive measures at the time of entry to the restricted area.

Visit to Airport & Community   NEW

We always aim to strengthen HKIA's ability to operate, while developing a robust culture of sustainability throughout the organization. We co-operate with various academic institutions and NGOs to carry out research and study on sustainability. By organising the visit to airport & community, we would like to provide the young people with an opportunity to see on the spot the airport's operations, as well as examples of our partnership works on sustainability with the communities. 

The first Visit to Airport & Community is the NGO Food Angel which we have co-operation for many years. We carried out the Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) Food Rescue Programme in partnership with Food Angel to collect surplus food from restaurants and caterers at HKIA. We have limited quota for this visit and we will launch different kinds of visit to airport & community later for the participation of local secondary schools and youth organisations.

Visit to Airport & Community:

  • The whole visit will be around 3 hours
  • HKIA's overview and tour of airport's facilities (around 1.5 hours)
  • Foodstep Journey by Food Angel (around 1.5 hours)

Partnership Programme

To further widen students' exposure and develop closer communications with schools, we co-operate with other tailored programmes designed for secondary school students, including visits to other airport industry partners.

These include the Education Bureau’s "Business-School Partnership Programme" and the Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce’s "Business-School Partnership Programme". The AA also builds close relationships with school principals and teachers through activities such as airport visits for Secondary School Heads Associations from different districts in Hong Kong.
