Signage and notices will be updated to provide clear directions, while additional manpower will be deployed to assist passengers.

The decommissioned T2 is expected to reopen in 2024 after expansion, along with the commissioning of the entire 3RS.T2 will then be a full service terminal providing both arrivals and departure services.

HKIA Announces Traffic Figures for January
Press Release Excerpt

(HONG KONG, 16 February 2020) – Traffic figures at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) saw decreases in January 2020. During the month, HKIA handled 5.7 million passengers and 33,210 flight movements, representing year-on-year decreases of 11.7% and 9.1%, respectively. Cargo throughput dropped 10.4% compared to the same month last year, to 359,000 tonnes.

Overall passenger traffic to/from Mainland China, South Korea and Southeast Asia recorded the most significant decreases in January. Visitor traffic remained weak, showing a year-on-year decrease of 43%. However, travel by Hong Kong residents saw a surge during the Chinese New Year holidays, amounting to a monthly growth of 25% year-on-year.

Cargo throughput declined due to closure of factories and businesses in Mainland China during the Chinese New Year holidays. The decrease in cargo was mainly attributed to the 15% and 10% drops in imports and transshipments, respectively. Exports decreased by 9% compared to the same month last year. Amongst key trading regions, traffic to/from Southeast Asia and North America decreased most significantly in the month.

Vivian Cheung, Executive Director, Airport Operations of Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA) said, “HKIA’s traffic has been affected by multiple factors, including the outbreak of Novel Coronavirus in late January and social circumstances. We expect to see continued decline in traffic numbers in February as airlines have suspended flights and governments in different markets have implemented immigration restrictions and quarantine measures. The AA has stepped up cleaning and disinfection work in the terminal and passenger facilities, and continues to work closely with the Port Health Division of the Department of Health and our business partners regarding disease prevention work at the airport.”

On a 12-month rolling basis, passenger volume and flight movements fell by 5.7% and 2.8% to 70.8 million and 416,445, respectively, while cargo throughput recorded 4.8 million tonnes, decreasing 6.6% year on year.

Hong Kong bars incoming Singapore Airlines flights over COVID-19 case
Excerpt

SINGAPORE, April 3 (Reuters) - Hong Kong has barred until mid-April incoming passenger flights from Singapore operated by Singapore Airlines, after an arriving passenger tested positive for COVID-19 infection.

Three passengers on the carrier's March 31 flight also failed to comply with disease precautions, Hong Kong authorities said on Friday.

Singapore Airlines confirmed the order but said passenger services from Hong Kong to Singapore would not be affected by the suspension, which runs until April 16.

A transit passenger on the SQ882 flight had a negative pre-departure test result, but subsequently tested positive on arrival in Hong Kong, the airline said.

"SIA has taken immediate steps to strengthen checks at the point of embarkation to ensure our customers are in compliance with Hong Kong’s regulatory requirements," it said in a statement.

S'pore-HK air tickets for May to early June snapped up after travel bubble relaunch announced
Apr 27, 2021
Straits Times Excerpt

Flights from Singapore to Hong Kong have sold out after the relaunch of an air travel bubble slated to start on May 26 was announced.

This travel arrangement will finally allow long-delayed quarantine-free travel to take off between both cities.

Singapore Airlines (SIA) and Cathay Pacific Airways will operate the travel bubble flights, which will start with one flight a day in each direction, each capped at 200 passengers. Flights will be increased to twice a day from June 10.

Cathay Pacific Airways said on Tuesday (April 27) that its website saw more than a 10-fold increase in traffic on Monday (April 26).

"Seats on our air travel bubble flights are selling fast, while some of the flights are sold out," said its spokesman.

A Singapore Airlines (SIA) spokesman said the airline has also seen a strong demand for their air travel bubble flights but declined to reveal figures due to commercial sensitivity.
