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 Partners

School Airport Visit   

Secondary school students will be introduced with an overview of the airport’s day-to-day operations, latest developments and future plans – as well as a tour of the airport’s facilities. 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).


  • HKIA’s strategic importance and its economic contribution to Hong Kong
  • HKIA’s latest operations
  • Future development

College Airport Visit   

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 Partners  

We always aim to strengthen HKIA's ability to operate, while developing a robust culture of sustainability throughout the organization.

We work closely with our business partners to deliver world-class facilities and services for the traveling public at HKIA. By organising visits to airport & community partners, the young people will have the opportunity to see on the spot the airport's operations, as well as examples of our partnership works with the community partners. 

We have limited quota for this visit and we will launch different kinds of visit to airport & community partners later for the participation of local secondary schools and youth organisations.

AVSECO Canine Unit (ACU)   NEW

Managed by the Aviation Security Company Limited (AVSECO), AVSECO canine unit was set up last year to further enahnce airport security. Canines step up patrol in the terminal and are capable to detect explosives upon completion of training. They also take another role as ambassadors to welcome travelers at HKIA. 

Visit to Airport & Community:

  • The whole visit will be around 2.5 hours
  • HKIA's overview and tour of airport's facilities (around 1.5 hours)
  • AVSECO Canine Unit (around 1 hour)

Partnership Programme

To further widen students' exposure and develop closer communications with schools, we develop tailor-designed programmes for secondary school students, including visits to the airport and 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.
