Hong Kong’s gateway extends relief package for airport community
Hong Kong International Airport is extending its relief package for the airport community for another two months to the end of May 2021, in view of the prolonged impact brought by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The continuing waiver or reduction of various fees for the aviation industry from April to May 2021 includes parking charges for idle passenger aircraft and airbridge fees and a reduction in aircraft landing charges.
Airport operator, Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK), notes that its “rental relief” for retail and catering tenants will also continue.
Most of the shops and restaurants in the terminal have suspended business and their rental is waived. For those that remain open to provide essential services, the base rent is waived.
The airport states that it “will closely monitor the operating environment and provide necessary assistance to the airport community during these challenging times”.
It adds that its relief measures will be adjusted from time to time depending on the air traffic and business recovery situation at HKIA.
