AAHK extends airport relief package until the end of next month

The extension was in response to the prolonged impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the aviation sector.

Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) has announced a further extension of the relief package for the local aviation sector by two more months until September 2022.

The decision was taken in response to the Covid-19 crisis’ protracted effect on the aviation sector.

Among the relief measures to be extended include a drop in passenger carrier landing fees and a complete waiver of parking fees for idle passenger planes and airbridge charges.

A decrease in fees associated with ramp handling, maintenance and airside vehicles, as well as a rental reduction for terminal tenants including lounges and offices will also be provided till next month.

In addition, there will be concessions on aviation support services charges. These cover aircraft maintenance, inflight catering and into-plane fuelling services.

Terminal licensees such as commercial services counters and cross-border transport operators will also secure fee waivers.

AAHK stated that shops and restaurants are gradually resuming their businesses at the airport terminal with a growth in passenger volumes.

The operator will forgo the base rent for tenants that have opened their outlets, as well as the rental for retail and catering tenants whose operations remain stalled.

It said the relief measures would be reviewed depending on the changing circumstances.

The package was first announced in February  2020.

In October 2020, AAHK extended the relief measures to the end of that year, citing poor travel demand amid the pandemic.
