Project overview

Land reclamation Check Lap Kok airport Hong Kong

In 1996 Hong Kong was a modern city-state with almost 6 million inhabitants where air traffic was a very important component for economic activity. The old airport Kai Tak, with a single runway, was no longer able to cope with the growing number of passengers and amount of freight.  The authorities decided to build a new, bigger airport at a new location in Hong Kong, a 350 hectares hilly island off the coast about 28 km west of the city center.
