Hong Kong mulls third runway

12 Sep 13 Hong Kong airport’s two runways will reach their maximum capacity of 68 flight movements per hour in 2015.

Civil Aviation Department assistant director-general (air traffic management) Manuel Sum said that the present number of 64 movements per hour is forecast to rise to 65 this winter, and then to 68 in two years.

A consultant has predicted the figures according to International Civil Aviation Organisation procedure.

Hong Kong has reached consensus with the mainland and Macau civil aviation authorities regarding the use of airspace in the Pearl River Delta region and this does not affect the possibility of building a third runway at Hong Kong airport, he said.
