Runway Capacity

103.     As announced last May, the Government will increase the capacity of the two existing runways of the HKIA progressively from 54 movements per hour to 58 movements per hour in 2009. With the support of the AA and the industry, we are confident that capacity of the existing runways can be gradually increased to 68 aircraft movements per hour by 2015. In the long run, it is important that the HKIA can further increase runway capacity to handle forecast growth in air traffic. The AA is preparing to start, within this year, the engineering and environmental feasibility studies for a third runway.
