Economic Benefits

The 3RS is crucial to the future of Hong Kong. It will consolidate our city’s status as an international and regional aviation hub, spur economic development and create hundreds of thousands of jobs.

The Airport Authority also surveyed more than 400 different companies and organisations operating on the airport island in 2015. Of the airport’s 73,000 staff, around 22% performs manual/low-skilled jobs and 64% is engaged in skilled jobs. Expanding the airport into a 3RS will continue to provide enormous job opportunities.
