Hong Kong International Airport Achieves Record

Hong Kong International Airport recorded continuous traffic growth in 2017, with all three air traffic categories reaching new annual heights.

During 2017, the airport handled 72.9 million passengers and 420,630 flight movements, representing yearly rises of 3.3 percent and 2.2 percent respectively. Cargo throughput also increased by 9.2 percent year-on-year to 4.94 million tonnes.

Together with 112,000 tonnes of airmail handled during the year, the total cargo and airmail throughput of the airport has exceeded the mark of five million tonnes for the first time.

Fred Lam, CEO, Airport Authority, Hong Kong, said, “Hong Kong International Airport is the first airport in the world to have ever handled over five million tonnes of cargo and airmail in a year. This achievement is particularly remarkable as we are concurrently handling over 72 million passengers annually.”
