Continuing to maintain its position as a world-class airport, a recent report reveals passenger traffic at Hong Kong Airport increased 4.1 percent in May, year on year.
AAHK chief executive officer Stanley Hui Hon-chung said both passenger traffic and aircraft movements continue to perform well, while cargo volume recorded its first positive yearly growth in 14 months.
Mr Hui said from the beginning of the year they have added eight new destinations to Hong Kong's air network.
“Far East Air Transport from Taiwan also started operating passenger services between Hong Kong and Makung at HKIA last month,” Mr Hui said.
“With around 100 airlines operating flights to about 160 destinations worldwide, HKIA will continue to strengthen its position as an international and regional aviation hub offering a world-class airport experience.”
From January to May 2012, Hong Kong Airport handled 23 million passengers and 143,445 aircraft movements, up 7.2 percent and 5.9 percent respectively from the same period last year.
