2221 ratings | 338656 views
The Airport Authority is planning to expand Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) into a three-runway system to meet its long-term air traffic demand. After its expansion into a three-runway system, HKIA will continue to provide world-class service and facilities, ensuring its place as an airport of the future. 機場管理局正計劃擴建香港國際機場成為三跑道系統,以應付長遠的航空交通需求。擴建成三跑道系統後,香港國際機場將繼續提供世界級服務及設施,致力成為未來機場典範。

I think a third runway at Hong Kong should go ahead. I also think the new runway should measure at least 4,000 metres, as well as extending the current two.

If Hong Kong government doesn't make sure of freedom and liberty, this fantastic airport plan will be useless and ignored. Hong Kong people and leader must keep in mind to be without Chinese Surveillance(Face Sensing AI CCTVs) System, Extradition Bill, Unfree Market, Unfree living and Chinese Intervention.

They don't want the germans to feel bad, since they are working on the extention of an existing airport since 10 years and struggling to get it operational
martin theiss (11 months ago)
Master Plans 2030 are just to develop how the situation will be at that point of time. A 2026 opening will be 4 years ahead. Just plans 4 to 5 years down the line after the commissioning of this terminal.

@martin theiss high rise housing, more fill, new runway at SFO. Upgrade Bart/Cal Train . Easy ;-)!
martin theiss (11 months ago)
KSFO is built out solid and no one in their right mind would expand anything at either Oakland or San Jose either. The major economic problem in that area is housing for those who are working day after day in the facilities. Governor Reagan in the 1960s signed a law requiring all communities and counties to create and maintain 7 year master plans for expansion and housing or risk losing State taxes. No one enforced it. Only now are people realizing there is a major cost to the lack of housing for those who work at airports.

That's about 18 billion USD to expand. How long will it take them to earn it back?
Zontar (1 year ago)
In direct revenue, it likely never will, however in terms of making the expansion worth the cost due to increased economic activity, probably around 8 to 12 years.

Ricky Sun (1 year ago)
What a stupid design, why use T2 with an expensive "Automated People Mover"? If you are going to have a new concourse, why not include a new terminal building? Surely it make more sense than having everyone checked in at T2 and having to travel to and from the new concourse
HakingMC (1 year ago)
Ricky Sun Ricky Sun They are not building a new terminal. They are expanding. Nowhere in my comment nor the video mentioned new terminal. Also, wasn't it you that vouched for a new one? Increasing slots. Solution? Yes. Long term? No. Be my guest and go to Heathrow.
Ricky Sun (1 year ago)
HakingMC When they are spending a stupid amount to make new land and new gates, I don't think a new terminal building will make much difference. If they are going to waste money and expand the airport, (when they could just increase the slots per hour), then they might as well do it properly. The Airport Authority isn't concerning about money anyway. They just won't listen to the citizens it serve.
HakingMC (1 year ago)
Ricky Sun Oh, I don't know. Maybe because it makes no sense and is wasting space? Seriously, terminal 2 is a waste. Right now, T2 is check-in only. So utilizing it with a newly built immigration and customs within for the new concourse would make it more useful than ever. Moreover, the cost of building a new terminal is a lot higher than that of an APM system.

Its to expand the capacity of services and cargo to include more flights in and out at any particular time. A well planned expansion can be cost effective for both the community at large and the international bond holders.

Tianshuo Jiang (11 months ago)
@JP Kai tak is too close to downtown. Makes too much noise, limits urban growth and it’s a safety risk for a highly populated city like hk. Plus Kai tak is a really good place to accommodate cruise ships as the runway stretches in deep water. So there’s a reason not to reopen Kai tak

ye, congestion

This is a scam, this video does not mention that planes attempting to take off or land on this runway will be in overlap airspaces of Macau and Shenzhen. That is aviation risk for travelers. Let alone the unrealistic budget estimation which is a sure underestimate.
Tianshuo Jiang (11 months ago)
Wilbert Yuen sources? I don’t think it overlaps Shenzhen airspace or if it does Shenzhen will do anything in favour of the HongKongers by order of the Communist Party..I feel sorry for the Shenzheners who just built a new airport. Macau airport is a piece of sh*t and nobody cares about them. They can turn the airport into a bloody museum passengers can go to Hong Kong via the HKMZB in less than an hour

I'm kinda curious... What about sea level raising ? How long will this work before you need to demolish everything and elevate the airport by 2-3 meters ?
Tianshuo Jiang (11 months ago)
Machin Truc they can build dams around the entire airport to prevent flooding in the future. Plus the airport is designed to be a few meters higher than sea level

Tampa0123456789 (1 year ago)
Complete waste of money but i guess its not coming out of their wallet. 1st Even when i saw them building the original i knew this was going to happen. had a poor design from the get go. Yes the airport design looked good from the air but it was never a good use of space. The Atlanta airport design could of worked here. Even tho i don't like Atlanta and London design it would of worked perfectly here. The only issue would of been that Atlanta and London have underground areas but i am sure they could of come up with some kind of solution. This airport should of use horizontal rows like a row boat. I am not engeneer and i am sure they had lots of people looking at this back in the olden days but it just annoys me that they want to now go back and waste more money. People all over the world already pay enough taxes as it is.
Rick K.L. Choi (1 year ago)
The HKIA is one of the world's best airports for a reason. Last time I check, Atlanta is not on the list.
Matthew Lee (1 year ago)
As you said, you're not an engineer, so let the experts get it working. The concourse design in Atlanta is designed for airports with a large amount of land area. In Hong Kong, it is all land reclamation. Also, there most likely isn't enough demand for the airport to use this system.
Freiheit Jetzt (1 year ago)
What if the APM breaks down, then terminal 3 will be paralysed. Who is the genius who thinks of such design
FrankyLon (1 year ago)
APM systems are usually redundant. There are two basic designs, the more common one is with guided vehicles running on tracks (so we are talking about some sort of light rail here) usually have at least two tracks. Any breakdown on one of them would not effect the other one due to dedicated systems for each (energy supply, control, rolling stock, etc.), so the system would run on a reduced capacity even if there is a malfunction on one side. In case of a simultaneous failure (very unlikely) people can be moved by buses. Other systems, like pod cars are even more redundant.
Matthew Lee (1 year ago)
Hey idiot, what about use the fat thing in your head? Firstly, our airport already uses an APM system for its outer gates, and it has never caused this kind of problem. The reliability of the APM system is very high. Secondly, airport busses exist for a reason.
Raditram (1 year ago)
it happened once in KL I think... they use emergency bus. So there's always a solution lmao
Tampa0123456789 (1 year ago)
At our airport we have 8 people movers to get to all the airside * our airport is like an octopus* .....You can't get to any gates with out using the people movers and we have never ever had any problems in decades. Also i am really sure they will use redundant people movers like we and other airport do just in case one goes down. *look up my airport and you will see. *Tampa Airport.

Peter Chan Yes, it is like they only want to move 10~15 years ahead instead of 30~50 years like the original project or similar projects in Middle East and Beijing.

Tampa0123456789 (1 year ago)
Me too it had character. I like airports like St Marten/Rio/San Fransisco because they are cramp and make plane spotting very interesting. Even London Hethrow and LAX are cool to watch because they are so cramp and busy. Most of the new airports are huge but hard to enjoy.

Take the runway's magnetic heading and round it to the nearest ten. Drop the zero and you've got your runway number. Parallel runways at the same airport are labelled Left, Center, and Right.
