Terminal 1 Extension to Commence Operation on 29 November 2019
Nov 21, 2019
Press Release Excerpt

Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA) announced that the extension of Terminal 1 (T1) at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) has been scheduled to commence operation on 29 November 2019, adding a new Aisle L with 48 check-in counters and bringing the total number of check-in counters in T1 to 369. The number of smart check-in kiosks in T1 will also increase to over 100 at the extended departure level.

In tandem with the opening of T1 extension, Terminal 2 (T2) will be decommissioned temporarily for expansion as part of the Three-runway System (3RS) project. Check-in counters at T2 will suspend operation at around 2300hrs on 28 November 2019, after which the check-in service for all airlines will be conducted in T1.

Ancillary services currently provided in T2, including the lost and found office and baggage storage service will be relocated to T1 and start operation on 29 November. The new ticketing counters for cross-boundary limousine and coach service will be relocated to the Arrivals level of the T1 extension area and open on the same day. Two additional baggage reclaim carousels in the restricted area at Arrivals level, catering kiosks and offices, will commence operation in phases.

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.
