Established in 1995, Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) is a statutory body wholly-owned by the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) and governed by the Airport Authority Ordinance (Chapter 483, The Laws of Hong Kong). Guided by the Ordinance and the objective of maintaining Hong Kong’s competitiveness as a global and regional aviation hub, AAHK is responsible for the provision, operation, development and maintenance of Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA), and the provision of facilities, amenities or industry at or from any place on the airport island, and other airport-related activities as permitted by the Airport Authority (Permitted Airport-related Activities) Order (Cap. 483E). AAHK is required to conduct its business according to prudent commercial principles and with due regard for the safe and efficient movement of aircraft, passengers and cargo.
In 2019/20, AAHK established a wholly-owned subsidiary, HKIA Services Holdings Limited (HKIA SHL), to oversee the Hong Kong International Aviation Academy, AsiaWorld-Expo and HKIA Consultancy with the purpose of strengthening HKIA’s status as an international aviation hub.
