Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) is located less than five flying hours from half of the world's population. They are the fifth busiest international passenger airport and operate the busiest international cargo facilities in the world.

In 2008, more than 48.6 million passengers used the airport, and over 3.6 million tonnes of air cargo passed through Hong Kong. With some 800 aircraft movements every day and around 85 airlines operating from HKIA, HKIA links Hong Kong with more than 150 destinations round the world, including some 40 cities on the Chinese Mainland.

Since they commenced operations in July 1998, they have made every effort to provide passengers with customer-focused facilities and services. This commitment has earned them the world's best airport recognitions. The latest survey by the independent air transport research organisation, Skytrax, ranked HKIA as No.1 – the seventh time in eight years. It was also named best airport by many other entities. These awards give them impetus to deliver even better airport experience.

With the opening of Terminal 2 in June 2007, HKIA is now a two-terminal and two-runway facility contributing to the economic growth for Hong Kong and the Pearl River Delta (PRD) region. Today, the 60,000-strong airport community serves as the key contributor to Hong Kong's position as a leading international and regional aviation centre.

HKIA is a gateway of China. To serve growing demand, they will continue to strengthen their integrated, multi-modal transport network with the Mainland, especially the PRD.

Six PRD ports – Shenzhen Shekou and Fuyong, Dongguan, Zhongshan, Zhuhai and Macau – currently offer these speedy cross-boundary arrangements. Passengers can even pre-check their baggage and obtain their boarding pass at Fuyong, Shekou, Macau and Dongguan Humen. A new permanent SkyPier facility is under construction.Safety is at the heart of their business. HKIA aspires to be the world’s safest airport and they are committed to continual improvements in passenger and airport staff safety, for creating a zero-injury workplace. With the support of all their airport business partners, their safety strategy institutionalises innovative and disciplined safety work processes.
