The new agreement will further enhance the competitiveness of Hong Kong as an international aviation hub and in support of Hong Kong’s continuous development as the region’s premier center for international businesses?

Under the expansion project, the site area of HKBAC in its existing location will be expanded by half from 16,000 square meters to 24,500square meters. The Executive Terminal of HKBAC will be expanded four times to 4,800 square meters and a new building will be added to provide more customer facilities, including enhanced Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) facilities and a canopy for passengers at the apron.

Upon completion of the expansion in 2025, the annual handling capacity of business aircraft flight movement at the HKBAC will be doubled.

Jack So, Chairman of the Airport Authority, said the expansion plan will help further attract global businesses to set up regional headquarters and offices in Hong Kong, taking advantage of Hong Kong International Airport’s unique geographical location and connectivity that enables business executives to reach major Asian markets within five hours.
