My favorite airport!
Hong Kong International Airport, voted to be one of the best by frequent travelers, is an airport located on reclaimed land Chek Lap Kok Island. It is also commonly known as Chek Lap Kok Airport. The airport replaced the city airport Kai Tak in 1998 after having a huge surge in air travel which posed too much danger by having aircrafts from all over the world flying into the airport located within the numerous numbers of skyscrapers in Hong Kong.      In recent days, I've …

The airport opened for commercial operations in 1998, replacing Kai Tak, and is an important regional trans-shipment centre, passenger hub and gateway for destinations in Mainland China (with over 40 destinations) and the rest of Asia. Despite a relatively short history, Hong Kong International Airport has won seven Skytrax World Airport Awards for customer satisfaction in just ten years.

HKIA also operates one of the world's largest passenger terminal buildings and operates twenty-four hours a day. The airport is operated by theAirport Authority Hong Kong and is the primary hub for Cathay Pacific, Dragonair, Hong Kong Express Airways, Hong Kong Airlines, Air Hong Kong (cargo) and Asia Jet (private). It is a secondary hub for Air New Zealand, to a lesser extent Qantas and Virgin Atlantic, all of which use Hong Kong as a stopover point for flights on the Kangaroo Route between Australasia and Europe. United Airlines also uses Hong Kong as a stopover point for flights from the United States to Singapore and Ho Chi Minh City.

Flights are operated by roughly 90 airlines to over 150 cities across the globe, and in 2008 it was the 12th busiest airport worldwide in terms of passenger ...
