Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) is located less than five flying hours from half of the world's population. We are the world's busiest cargo gateway and one of the world's busiest passenger airports.
In 2012, 56.5 million passengers used HKIA and 4.03 million tonnes of air cargo passed through Hong Kong. HKIA is connected to about 180 destinations, including 48 in the Mainland, through about 1,000 daily flights by more than 100 airlines.
Since we commenced operations in July 1998, we adhere to four principles - Safety, Operational Efficiency, Customer Convenience and Environment. This commitment has earned us the recognition as the world's best airport over 50 times.
HKIA is a two-terminal and two-runway facility generating enormous social and economic value for Hong Kong. The 65,000-strong airport community serves as the key contributor to Hong Kong's position as a leading international and regional aviation centre.
