Airside consultancy for China & North Asia
Increasing airside efficiency is more important than ever in airports in China and North Asia. Airports Council International (ACI World) has predicted that China will have the largest share of the passenger transport market by 2040, at 18.2%, yet flight delays continue to be a serious issue. Hong Kong’s Chep Lap Kok Airport is also expanding with a third runway, aiming to handle 26.4 million more passengers and generate HK$455 billion of economic benefits by 2061.
