The Airport Authority’s (AA) relief package for the airport community will continue in view of the prolonged impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The waiver or reduction of various fees for the aviation industry announced in March this year will continue in July and August. The continuing relief measures for the aviation industry include full waiver of parking and airbridge fees for idle passenger aircraft, reduction for passenger aircraft landing charges; fees related to ramp handling, maintenance and airside vehicles; as well as rental reduction for terminal tenants covering lounges and offices; fee waiver for terminal licencees including commercial counters and cross-border transport operators; and concessions on franchise fees for aviation support services such as into-plane fuelling. Full waiver on fixed charges for inflight catering services will be effective from June to August.
In addition, the rental relief for retail and catering tenants will continue. Rental waiver for temporarily closed shops and restaurants will also be extended.
