Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA) is extending the relief package for the airport community for another two months to the end of May 2021, in view of the prolonged impact brought by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The continuing waiver or reduction of various fees for the aviation industry from April to May 2021 include full waiver of parking charges for idle passenger aircraft and airbridge fees; reduction of passenger aircraft landing charges; fees reduction related to ramp handling, maintenance and airside vehicles; as well as rental reduction for terminal tenants covering lounges and offices; fees waiver for terminal licencees including ancillary passenger services, commercial services counters and cross-border transport operators; and concessions on fees for aviation support services such as into-plane fuelling, aircraft maintenance and inflight catering services.

The rental relief for retail and catering tenants will also continue. Most of the shops and restaurants in the terminal have suspended business and their rental is waived. For those that remain open to provide essential services, the base rent is waived.

AA will closely monitor the operating environment and provide necessary assistance to the airport community during these challenging times. The relief measures will be adjusted from time to time depending on the air traffic and business recovery situation at HKIA.
