Airport Authority Hong Kong: "2005 was a remarkable year for HKIA. Impressive figures aside, we made a number of breakthroughs in our business. A total of ten new carriers joined our extensive air network to provide scheduled services at HKIA. The opening of AsiaWorld-Expo - the largest exhibition and event complex - in Dec-05 is a further illustration that HKIA is more than an airport. To maintain our hub position and to facilitate the continuous growth of air traffic, the much anticipated SkyPlaza, which houses the second passenger terminal, will be opened later this year", Hans Bakker, Commercial Director.
