Chek Lap Kok airport in Hong Kong opened on July 6, 1998 at a cost
of approximately 20 billion U.S. dollars (about 155 billion Hong Kong
dollars). The airport alone cost 9 billion dollars, with the extra
11 billion being spent on the construction of the main access means
of transportation. Namely two suspension bridges across to Lantau
and a brand-new expressway. To top it all, a high-tech express railway
system links the 34 km separating the airport from the Central business
district in 23 minutes.
Due to the scale
of airport operations in Hong Kong, the airport area itself is on
1,248 hectares (3,083.8 acres) of land and is like a mini city, containing
the following infrastructure and facilities to handle the following:
- Two runways
- A huge passenger
terminal of 550,000 m2 (657,800 sq. yards) containing 88 passenger
- A Hotel, Flight
Catering, Aircraft Maintenance, Airline Headquarter Buildings (e.g.
Cathay) and so on.
of roadways both inside and surrounding the airport.
- The airport
is ultimately designed to handle upto 47 flights per hour, 87 million
passengers and 9 million metric tons (9.9 imperial tons) in cargo
