Hong Kong Airport is one of the busiest (places 13 worldwide with 71,541,000 passengers in 2019) and best airports in the world, located in the south of China and west of the city (on artificial island Chek Lap Kok). To get there you go via Lantau Island or Stonecutters Island or Tsing Yi Island or West Kowloon. Hong Kong Airport is the largest cargo airport worldwide. Most airlines seen are Cathay Pacific, Hong Kong Airlines and HK Express. The airport was opened for passenger flights in 1998.
The airport has two terminals. Terminal 1 is referred to as the main building which is connected to all gates. Terminal 2 was used for departing passengers only. This is now temporarily closed for renewal, after which it can also be used for not only departures but also arrivals at Hong Kong Airport.
The airport transports the most cargo worldwide with around 5 million tons. In 2019, there were 419,730 Hong Kong airport departures and arrivals with over 70 million passengers. That is slightly less than the year before and that was because the airport was closed several times due to the demonstration that was held. This year there will be only 9 million Hong Kong arrivals / departures due to corona. All of these 9 million passengers arrive or depart at the two runways of both 3,800 meters (12,467 ft). There are plans to create a third runway.
The Hong Kong – Auckland and Auckland – Hong Kong routes are popular. This route is often flown by Cathay Pacific and Air New Zealand.
