Asian airlines support third Hong Kong runway

12/13/2013 11:01:13 AM

   Andrew Herdman, director general of the Association of Asia Pacific Airlines, Wednesday reiterated his support for a third runway at Hong Kong International Airport, the busiest cargo airport in the world. 

   In 2012, 4.03 million tons of cargo passed through HKIA, and Airports Council International has ranked Hong Kong as the top cargo airport for the past three years. (It overtook the long-running cargo champion, Memphis International Airport, in 2010.) This level of throughput, according to airport officials, will soon strain existing infrastructure.


 The Airport Authority Hong Kong outlined the addition of a third runway in its Master Plan 2030, released in June 2011. Since then, slow, steady progress has been made toward achieving its goals, with environmental impact studies and public comment periods along the way.
