HKIA Achieves Record Breaking Year in 2017
Cargo and Airmail Throughput Exceeds Five Million Tonnes for the First Time
Press Release Excerpt

(HONG KONG, 17 January 2018) – Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) recorded continuous traffic growth in 2017, with all three air traffic categories reaching new annual heights. During the year, HKIA handled 72.9 million passengers and 420,630 flight movements, representing yearly rises of 3.3% and 2.2% respectively. Cargo throughput also increased by 9.2% 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 HKIA has exceeded the mark of 5 million tonnes for the first time.

Fred Lam, Chief Executive Officer of Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA), said, “HKIA is the first airport in the world to have ever handled over 5 million tonnes of cargo and airmail in a year. This achievement is particularly remarkable as we are concurrently handling over 72 million passengers annually. Such an accomplishment could not have been done without the support and dedicated service of our 73,000 airport community members. We are also honored to be awarded with a number of recognitions during the year, such as the “Best Airport in North & East Asia” award at the Future Travel Experience Asia Awards, as well as “Best Global Airport” in The Asian Freight, Logistics & Supply Chain Awards by Asia Cargo News, reconfirming HKIA’s leading position as a regional and international aviation hub.”

During the year, over 100 airlines had been operating at HKIA, including 13 new joiners namely Air Seoul, Hong Kong Air Cargo Carrier, JC (Cambodia) International Airlines, Lanmei Airlines (Cambodia), Virgin Australia, Air Japan, Air Cargo Global, CargoLogicAir, Cambodia Angkor Air, Small Planet Airlines, National Air Cargo, Sky Gates Airlines and Western Global Airlines. The extensive air network of HKIA has also been expanded with 17 new destinations, including Baotou, Zhangjiajie, Huangshan, Yuncheng, Taitung, Komatsu, Sendai, Toowoomba, Christchurch, Yekaterinburg, Hahn in Frankfurt, Prague, Stansted in London, Verona, Warsaw, Indianapolis and Sihanoukville, adding to a total of over 220 destinations.

In December 2017, all three traffic categories experienced steady growth. Flight movements reached a new monthly record high of 36,635, registering a 2.7% year-on-year increase. Passenger volume during the month rose 4.3% yearly to reach 6.42 million, while cargo throughput climbed 6.3% over December 2016 to 462,000 tonnes.

A strong 7% year-on-year increase in transfer/transit traffic, and 6% jump in Hong Kong resident travel both drove the growth in passenger throughput. Passenger traffic to and from the Mainland and Japan recorded the most significant increases.

The growth in December cargo throughput was largely driven by transshipments and exports, both registering 8% year-on-year growth compared to December 2016. Amongst the key trading regions, traffic to and from Europe and India increased most significantly during the month.
