Hactl strongly supports Environmental Impact Assessment process for
expanding Hong Kong’s airport to three-runway system
Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl) – the major air cargo handler at the world’s largest air cargo hub – strongly supports the Environmental Impact Assessment process initiated by Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA), which forms a key element of the project to expand the airport to a three-runway system.
Airport Authority Hong Kong’s (AAHK’s) Project Profile has been sent to the Director of Environmental Protection, beginning an exhaustive consultation and study process involving members of the public and other stakeholders.
Says Mark Whitehead, Managing Director of Hactl: “It is very clear that
“So airport expansion is necessary, but this must be undertaken in an environmentally-sensitive manner. Hactl has firmly established its own environmental credentials and, for this reason, we strongly applaud the exemplary way in which this project is being handled by the Hong Kong SAR Government and AAHK.“We believe the two-year process that has been initiated by HKIA will ensure that every aspect of the expansions’ potential impact is fully considered, and that the project will then be conducted at every stage in a way that mitigates and minimises its effect.”
