HKIA traffic +10% to 4.3m

By Doug Newhouse |

Airport Authority Hong Kong has reported January passenger figures up 10% to 4.3m, with growth driven mainly by Hong Kong resident travel and traffic to and from South East Asia and the Mainland. Transfer/transit passengers also grew by 6%.

Stanley Hui Hon-chung, Ceo of Airport Authority Hong Kong, said: “I am glad to see the encouraging air traffic figures in the first month of this year. In addition, more and more of our passengers use the cross-boundary sea and land transport services to and from HKIA and the Pearl River Delta region, strengthening HKIA as a preferred gateway to the Mainland.” 

Over 190,000 passengers used the SkyPier service in January, making a 20% year-on-year increase. About 160,000 passengers took mainland coaches and limousines to cross the border, growing more than 40% over the same period last year.

“Passenger volume and aircraft movement figures continued to rise over the Chinese New Year (CNY) period, and a new daily record of more than 170,000 passengers was set on 7 February. During the period between 2-8 February, the airport handled nearly 1.1 million passengers and over 6,100 air traffic movements, up 3.8% and 7.7% from the CNY period last year,” said Hui.
