Airport Authority Hong Kong extends relief packages for partners

Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) has extended its relief package for business partners by two months to the end of July 2022. The airport company said it decided to maintain its support “in view of the prolonged impact to the aviation industry brought by the COVID-19 pandemic”.

Various fee waiver or concession policies supporting the industry will continue through June and July. These include rent relief for retail and catering tenants. Most shops and restaurants in the terminal have suspended business and their rental costs have been waived. The base rent is also waived for businesses  that remain open to provide essential services.

Further measures include full waiver of parking charges for idle passenger aircraft and airbridge fees, reduction of passenger aircraft landing charges, and fee reduction related to ramp handling, maintenance and airside vehicles. They also include rental reduction for terminal tenants covering lounges and offices; fees waiver for terminal licensees including ancillary passenger services, commercial services counters and cross-border transport operators; and concessions on fees for aviation support services.
