Hong Kong International Airport
Shaping Our Airport Our Future

Three Runway System

To meet future air traffic growth, the Airport Authority (AA) has been planning to expand Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) into a three-runway system (3RS). This dedicated website provides latest updates of the 3RS project, as well as information on the background, public engagement efforts and publications related to the project.

On 7 November 2014, the Director of Environmental Protection approved the Environmental Impact Assessment report and issued the Environmental Permit for the project. For the next stage, the AA will submit to the Government its recommendation for how to take the project forward, and proceed to completing other necessary statutory procedures once it obtains approval.
