Airport City Development supported

The HKSAR Government has taken on board the Airport Authority Hong Kong's (AA) recommendations in relation to developments on the Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities (HKBCF) island of Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge.
     The proposals include providing automated car parks for transfer passengers and visitors to Hong Kong. There will also be an autonomous transport system connecting the HKBCF island, the airport, Skycity, and Tung Chung town centre. Land parcels on the island have been reserved for the development of air cargo logistics and facilities for the Hong Kong International Aviation Academy. These proposals, together with AsiaWorld-Expo Phase 2 development, will create synergies with other developments of the airport.
     AA welcomes the support in the Chief Executive's Policy Address to the Airport City development, which aims to strengthen Hong Kong International Airport's (HKIA) as an international aviation hub. The AA also thanks the Central Government, Guangdong Provincial Government and HKSAR Government for their support to further collaboration between HKIA and Zhuhai airport.
     Jack So Chak-kwong, Chairman of the AA, said “The implementation of the Airport City development blueprint will strengthen the development of Lantau and HKIA as the “double gateway” to the world and the Greater Bay Area, propelling the economic development of Hong Kong and the region.”
