Air Transport

101.     As an international and regional aviation hub, Hong Kong has direct air links with more than 150 cities in the world, providing strong support for transnational businesses, the tourism industry, and the logistics industry. The HKIA is the world's fifth busiest airport in terms of international passenger throughput and the busiest in terms of international cargo throughput. Passenger and air cargo throughput reached new highs last year, with over 47 million travellers passing through the airport and 3.74 million tonnes of air cargo handled.

102.     To enhance the competitiveness of the HKIA, the Airport Authority (AA) keeps upgrading the airport's infrastructure to increase its passenger and cargo handling capacities and strengthen transport links between the airport and the Pearl River Delta. These measures can help to further consolidate Hong Kong's position as an aviation hub.
