Third Runway at HKIA approved

Travel News 01 Mar 2015

Hong Kong International Airport will move forward with plans to develop a third runway, after the project was officially approved by Hong Kong‘s Executive Council this week.

The new runway will be developed on 650 hectares of reclaimed land and will also feature new taxiways and aprons, a third runway concourse, an expanded Terminal 2, an automated people mover connecting to the main terminal, and a baggage handling system.

The third runway forms part of a major expansion plan for HKIA. Late last year the airport completed construction work on a new 105,000m², five-level Midfield Concourse, which is expected to become operational by the end of 2015.

Once the third runway is completed, the airport will be able to handle an extra 30 million passengers per year.
