Airport City

Transforming from a city airport to an Airport City supporting the economic development of Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Area.

Since its opening in 1998, HKIA has evolved from an international aviation hub into a growing nexus of multi-modal connectivity, aviation logistics services, and commercial developments, which radiate from the airport to form a much bigger entity to serve the region’s growing demand for air transport. Echoing the Outline Development Plan for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, our Airport City vision reinforces HKIA’s role as the region’s international aviation hub.

2018/19 key achievements:

  • 90% of the deep cement mixing works for the Three-runway System completed

  • 17 destinations added to HKIA’s growing global network

  • First airport community received the IATA CEIV Fresh Certification

Expanding Capacity and Functionality
