Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) today announced the air traffic figures for Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) for July 2022.
During the month, HKIA welcomed 401,000 passengers, which represented a growth of 259.3% over the same period last year but passenger volume remained significantly below pre-pandemic levels.
The relaxation of inbound travel and transfer/transit measures drove the growth in all passenger traffic segments – including Hong Kong residents, visitors and transfer/transit passengers – compared to the same month last year.
Passenger traffic to and from Southeast Asia experienced the most significant increase.
Over the first seven months of the year, HKIA handled 1.2 million passengers, an increase of 152.8% compared to the same period last year.
In July a set of vibrant multimedia installations were unveiled in Terminal 1, with specially curated contents to create a soothing environment and provide passengers with an enjoyable airport experience.
The elevator at the centre of the Meeters and Greeters Hall now houses the captivating “Crystal Elevator”, with its crystalline façade screening digital video and images related to Hong Kong as well as themes of travel, nature and games.
The “Waterfall Gardens” in the North and South Arrivals Halls synthesise the sights and sounds of nature such as a cascading waterfall, flowing creeks and crystal-clear ponds.
Visitors are encouraged to interact with the vertical and floor screens by touching the waterfall and stepping on the stones of a creek, or simply relaxing by the ponds.
