2019/09/21

(HONG KONG, 21 September 2019, 1830hrs)  –  In view of the calls for attempts to block traffic to Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) tomorrow, Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA) has been working closely with the airport community and public transport operators to implement special measures to ensure the smooth operations of HKIA.

Airport-bound Airport Express trains will only take passengers from Hong Kong Station to the airport and will not stop at the Kowloon, Tsing Yi and AsiaWorld-Expo Stations starting from 0900hrs tomorrow until close of service. City-bound Airport Express service will only stop at Hong Kong Station. In-town check-in service at Kowloon Station will be suspended for the whole day.

Car Park 1 of the airport will be closed starting from 0900hrs tomorrow because of operational considerations.

Passengers are advised to allow sufficient time to travel to the airport. Passengers can also check with their respective airlines, or the airport’s website and “HKG My Flight” mobile app for updated flight information.

Access control at the terminal buildings of HKIA is being implemented. Only bona fide passengers with a valid air ticket or boarding pass for a flight in the next 24 hours and a valid travel document will be allowed to enter the terminal buildings. Airport security staff and AA staff will be deployed to Hong Kong Station of Airport Express Line tomorrow to assist checks with travellers heading to the airport regarding required documents or proof.

Meanwhile, there are calls online for using fake boarding passes, fake air tickets or fake flight booking information to enter into the terminal buildings of the airport. The AA reminds that such behavior could amount to forgery or using false instrument.
