AECOM served as the lead consultant for the Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) – Airport Master Plan 2030 Study, a 20-year blueprint that will ensure HKIA can meet the growing demand for aviation services and achieve balance between airport operations, aviation support and airport-related development in the future, while also retaining Hong Kong’s long-term competitiveness and position as an international and regional aviation hub.

The aim of the study was to conduct a comprehensive assessment of the airport’s operational requirements and constraints up to 2030 and beyond based on adding a third parallel runway and its supporting facilities and infrastructures.

Leading an experienced international team of sub-consultants, including cost estimators and environmentalists, as well as planners with expertise in airports, airfields, terminals, retail facilities, urban and real estate development, and road and rail networks, AECOM was able to complete the study within a year.

We were also the consultant for the “New Airport Master Plan” in the early 1990s, when the airport was first conceived.
