Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) receives Hong Kong MIKE Awards

Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) today released the air traffic figures for Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) for March 2024.

Traffic to and from Southeast Asia, Mainland China and Japan recorded the most significant increases during the month.

Cargo throughput registered a year-on-year increase of 15.1% to 428,000 tonnes in March.

HKIA has now posted double-digit year-on-year growth in cargo each month in 2024, on the back of another successful year in 2023 for which HKIA was once again named the busiest cargo airport in the world by Airports Council International.

Export traffic was again the main driver in March, recording a 23.7% increase compared to the same month last year. Among key trading regions, cargo traffic to and from North America, Europe and the Middle East rose most significantly during the month.

As traffic maintained its growth trajectory, AAHK continued to receive international and local recognition for its on-going efforts to leverage innovative technologies and knowledge management systems for greater operational efficiency.

AAHK recently received the “Most Innovative Knowledge Enterprise (MIKE) Award 2023” in both the Global and Hong Kong categories as well as ‘‘The Best in Technology Deployment Award” and “Top Winners” distinction in the Hong Kong MIKE Awards 2023.

Vivian Cheung, Chief Operating Officer of AAHK, said, “We are honoured to receive these awards, which recognise our innovative approach to knowledge management and providing quality service to passengers.

“We will continue to identify and incorporate the latest innovations in airport management to further enhance the efficiency of our operations and provide passengers with a pleasant airport journey.”
