HKBAC’s In-situ Expansion Commenced to Upgrade Hong Kong’s Aviation Infrastructure

The Hong Kong Business Aviation Centre (HKBAC) commenced its HK$400 million in-situ expansion at the Hong Kong International Airport on 18 October 2022 to provide business aviation services underlining the city’s international aviation hub status.

The expansion plan will proceed in two parts. The first includes the refurbishment and expansion of the existing Executive Terminal Building (ETB) with an upgrade on the co-located customs, immigration and quarantine (CIQ); and a new all-weather canopy stretching from the ETB to shield and serve both aircraft and passengers. The second part features a new Support Terminal with three enlarged facilities to cope with emerging demands from chartered flights and group travel flights. Additional offices will also be built for business aviation stakeholders.

Upon completion of the expansion in 2025, HKBAC will double its handling capacity for business jet movements, tying in with the Three-runway System and the Airport City developments. It will also improve the travel experience for passengers and tap into the rapid growth of business aviation demand in the Greater Bay Area and beyond.

Together with the existing HKBAC facilities, the in-situ expansion will deliver an area five times that of the existing ones and the number of car-parking bays will double the existing provision. Various green and smart features, including solar panels, EV chargers and smart building management system, will also be installed in the new HKBAC. —Construction+ Online
