Hactl backs EIA study for the third runway at HKIA

%2017 %06 %29


HONG Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl) strongly supports the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process initiated by Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA), which forms a key element of the project to expand the airport to a three-runway system.

Airport Authority Hong Kong's (AAHK's) Project Profile has been sent to the Director of Environmental Protection, beginning an exhaustive consultation and study process involving members of the public and other stakeholders.

Mark Whitehead, managing director of Hactl, said: "It is very clear that Hong Kong's future as a world-class airline hub relies heavily on its ability to continue satisfying the future needs of passengers, exporters, importers and airlines. The current two-runway system will soon be overloaded; without positive action, this will cause major damage to Hong Kong's trade-based economy and our employment market.

"So airport expansion is necessary, but this must be undertaken in an environmentally-sensitive manner. Hactl has firmly established its own environmental credentials and, for this reason, we strongly applaud the exemplary way in which this project is being handled by the Hong Kong SAR Government and AAHK.

"We believe the two-year process that has been initiated by HKIA will ensure that every aspect of the expansions' potential impact is fully considered, and that the project will then be conducted at every stage in a way that mitigates and minimises its effect."
