Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) achieved a new record month in terms of aircraft movements in May 2013. 

Last month, the airport recorded 31,040 take offs and landings – 6.1% more than in May 2012 and a new monthly record. Passenger movements also saw strong growth, rising 4.1% to 4.7 million. This was driven by a 10% surge in traffic by Hong Kong residents, with routes to and from Southeast Asia and mainland China performing especially well.

“We are delighted that monthly flight movement has reached a new record high, beating the previous record of 30,799 set in December 2012,” said Stanley Hui Hon-chung, CEO of Hong Kong’s Airport Authority.

“Although increasing demand is posing greater challenges, HKIA is dedicated to maintaining our high service standards. We recently reconfigured arrangements at the ‘Meeters and Greeters Hall’, setting up extra stanchions and rearranging the waiting area to provide more circulation space for passenger flow. From small improvements to large-scale facility developments, we are committed, as always, to providing travellers with a delightful airport experience,” Hui added.

For the first five months of 2013, passenger traffic increased 4.1% to 23.9m, while flight movements rose 4.6% to 150,080.
