AA first introduced rent relief for partners in February 2020 and has continued to do so as the pandemic has escalated.
The waiver or reduction of various fees for the aviation industry will continue from June to July 2021 and includes the rental relief for retail and catering tenants.
Most shops and restaurants in the terminal have suspended business and their rental is waived. The base rent is also waived for those that remain open to provide essential services. Relief measures will be adjusted depending on the air traffic and business recovery at Hong Kong International Airport.
Other measures in place include a full waiver of parking charges for idle passenger aircraft and airbridge fees; reduction of passenger aircraft landing charges; fee reductions related to ramp handling, maintenance and airside vehicles; rental reduction for terminal tenants covering lounges and offices; fee waivers for terminal licensees including ancillary passenger services, commercial services counters and cross-border transport operators; and concessions on fees for aviation support services such as into-plane fuelling, aircraft maintenance and inflight catering services.
