Airport Authority Hong Kong extends relief package for two months

Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA) continues to stand with the airport community by extending its relief package for another two months to the end of September 2021, in view of the prolonged impact of COVID-19 on the aviation industry.

Various fee waiver or concession policies supporting the industry will continue from August to September 2021, including full waiver of parking charges for idle passenger aircraft and airbridge fees; reduction of passenger aircraft landing charges; fees reduction related to ramp handling, maintenance and airside vehicles; as well as rental reduction for terminal tenants covering lounges and offices; fees waiver for terminal licencees including ancillary passenger services, commercial services counters and cross-border transport operators; and concessions on fees for aviation support services such as into-plane fuelling, aircraft maintenance and inflight catering services.

The continuing relief package also includes the rental relief for retail and catering tenants.

Most of the shops and restaurants in the terminal have suspended business and their rental is waived. The base rent is also waived for those that remain open to provide essential services.

The relief measures will be adjusted to respond to the changing circumstances accordingly.
