AAHK Supports Legislative Proposals for Transshipment of Alternative Smoking Products


(HONG KONG, 22 March 2023, 2000hrs) – Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) supports the legislative proposals under the Import and Export (Amendment) Bill 2023 announced by the Government today which aims to facilitate the resumption of transshipping alternative smoking products (ASPs) from the Mainland via Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) to overseas destinations.

AAHK fully supports the Government’s stance of prohibiting ASPs from entering into the local market. With the securing and surveillance measures in place, AAHK will work with all concerned parties to comply with the new control and regulatory requirements stipulated by the Government.

HKIA has long been the world’s leading air cargo hub and a key international cargo gateway of the Mainland. HKIA handles around three-fourths international air cargo from the Greater Bay Area. AAHK looks forward to the resumption of the intermodal transshipment of the ASPs to offer better service for cargo transshipment in the Greater Bay Area.
