HKIA records significant growth in passenger traffic in March

Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) receives Hong Kong MIKE Awards

Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) today released the air traffic figures for Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) for March 2024.

During the month, HKIA handled 4.36 million passengers and 29,840 flight movements, representing year-on-year increases of 56.7% and 48.2%, respectively.

Partly driven by the long Easter holidays starting at the end of March, all passenger segments saw growth.

Traffic to and from Southeast Asia, Mainland China and Japan recorded the most significant increases during the month.

For the first quarter of the year, the airport handled 12.7 million passengers, marking an increase of 81.7% compared to the low base during the same period in 2023.

Flight movements registered a year-on-year increase of 63.7% to 86,210.

AAHK recently received the “Most Innovative Knowledge Enterprise (MIKE) Award 2023” in both the Global and Hong Kong categories as well as ‘‘The Best in Technology Deployment Award” and “Top Winners” distinction in the Hong Kong MIKE Awards 2023.

Vivian Cheung, Chief Operating Officer of AAHK, said, “We are honoured to receive these awards, which recognise our innovative approach to knowledge management and providing quality service to passengers.

“We will continue to identify and incorporate the latest innovations in airport management to further enhance the efficiency of our operations and provide passengers with a pleasant airport journey.”
