Any detailed maps of the terminal?

Hi, I am currently studying interior design and I will be creating a lounge for my project situated in HKIA, I was wondering are there any detailed maps of the terminal e.g.Blueprints.

It is really important and I hope someone would be about to post them on here. Thanks.

I doubt the blueprints will be published online given the heightened security sensitivities of airports nowadays.

Judge told of masked traveler in airport people-smuggling racket
The Standard
Thursday, September 08, 2011

Two airport ground service agents in Hong Kong identified stowaway mainlanders, including a young Fujian man in a silicone mask who entered Canada illegally, through special color-coded boarding passes, the District Court heard.

Chau Pak-kin, 26, and Chan Wing-chung, 27 - who worked for Singapore Air Terminal Services - pleaded not guilty to one count of conspiracy to obtain services by deception between March 1 and December 16 last year in connection with the alleged human smuggling ring.

They were responsible for checking documents at boarding gates in the airport's departure hall, and giving colored passes to distinguish different flights.

The prosecution alleges they conspired with "Ah Doi" and others by providing boarding passes to several people to get onto flights to Canada under false identities and using marker pens to distinguish targeted passengers.

The mainlander who sought refugee status soon after he arrived in Canada wearing the silicone mask of an elderly man was named only as person "X."

"The prosecution is not intending to prove the true identity of person X, but will reply upon the fact that a person used a false document to travel aboard this flight," said counsel for the prosecution Neil Mitchell.

The prosecution suggested "X" succeeded in entering Canada using the identity of a US man named Carey Henry Scott on October 29 last year.

Chau and his superior "Ah Doi" were involved in the man's boarding.

A mainland couple holding Singapore passports were intercepted by immigration officers earlier the same day as they queued up in a priority line reserved for the elderly and wheelchair-bound. Chan was in charge of their boarding passes.

The court was also told that two men who intended to board using forged travel documents were intercepted on May 16 last year. Chan had handled their boarding.

Chau told police after he was arrested he "just turned a blind eye" after "Ah Doi" said he could earn HK$20,000 for each stowaway allowed to board a flight.

The hearing continues today before District Court judge Albert Wong Sung-hau.

It was China Airlines decision to have the Boeing house colours. Maybe they got some sort of concession from Boeing?

Hong Kong Airport August Passengers Up 6.5% On Year At 5.0 Mln
SEPTEMBER 18, 2011
The Wall Street Journal

HONG KONG (Dow Jones)--Passenger traffic at Hong Kong's airport rose 6.5% in August from a year earlier because of a continued recovery in air travel, the city's airport operator said Sunday, but cargo volumes fell as demand softened during the month.

Airport Authority Hong Kong, which operates Hong Kong's international airport, said the airport handled 5.0 million passengers in August, up from 4.7 million a year earlier. Cargo throughput fell 7.8% to 319,000 metric tons from 346,000 tons a year earlier.

The decline in cargo throughput was mainly due to an 11% decrease in exports and a 5% fall in import volumes during the month, the airport operator said in a statement. It also said transshipment volumes--or goods that are shipped to Hong Kong from China before reaching their ultimate users in the West--fell 1% during the same period.
In the January-August period, passenger traffic at Hong Kong's airport rose 5.9% from a year earlier to 35.9 million passengers, and cargo throughput was down 3.6% at 2.6 million tons.

HK$246,000 bid for first 787 Boeing Dreamliner flight to Hong Kong

3 October, 2011
CNNGo

A ticket for two seats on the inaugural ANA 787 Boeing Dreamliner flight between Narita and Hong Kong has sold on eBay for AU$32,700 (HK$245,645), according to Australian Business Traveller.

The Dreamliner, which is slated to become one of the most efficient commercial aircraft in the sky, will make its first flight on October 26 between Japan's Narita International Airport and Hong Kong International Airport, then retrace its 3.5-hour route back to Japan the following day.

ANA's auction package included two business class tickets on both flights plus accommodation at the Kowloon Shangri-La hotel, in Hong Kong. To highlight the energy efficiency of the Boeing 787, all proceeds from the auction will go to Conservation International Japan, an environmental protection agency.

The eBay auction began one week ago at AU$1,826. In the final days, fierce bidding between four eBay punters pushed the bids past AU$30,000.

The winning bid works out to about AU$2,335, or HK$17,540, per hour of flying for each passenger.

Why all that money for a couple of seats on the 787 Boeing Dreamliner? The aircraft's makers claim it will be like nothing we've ever experienced on commercial flights.

Fair enough, though i'm sure CI had the final word on whether that scheme got applied or not.

Hong Kong International Airport has won the award World's Best Airport title during the 2011 World Airport Awards held at Passenger Terminal Expo in Copenhagen.

Following Hong Kong International Airport, the perennial favourite of worldwide travellers and last year's top airport, Singapore's Changi Airport became the runner up. This year's third place is Korea's Incheon International Airport, which last held the title in 2009.

Fourth was Munich Airport, also named Best Airport in Europe.

From eighth place last year, Beijing Capital Airport moved to fifth place and achieved Best Airport China. Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport finished sixth.

Seventh placed was Zurich Airport, with New Zealand's Auckland International Airport a surprise eighth, which also took the title of Best Airport Australia-Pacific.

Kuala Lumpur International Airport was ninth and took the honour of Best Immigration Service.

Leaping into the top 10 from 15th last year was Copenhagen Airport.

World Airport Award winners are picked up based on survey results from 11.38 million questionnaires filled up by more than 100 different nationality of airline travellers in 2010/2011, covering over 240 airports around the world.

Each respondent evaluates airport service and product factors, from check-in, arrivals, departure and at the gate. The awards starting operating in 1999.
