HKIA's Aug-2016 passenger traffic affected by typhoon among other incidents

Hong Kong International Airport handled (18-Sep-2016) 6.2 million passengers and 34,795 aircraft movements in Aug-2016, representing a year on year decrease of 2.2% and 0.3% respectively. The reduction in traffic were attributed to bad weather and typhoon in early Aug-2016 and the high base for comparison with regard to South Korean routes. Meanwhile cargo volume grew 3.6% y-o-y to 374,000 tonnes due to a robust 11% growth in transshipment particularly to/from Europe and Taiwan key trading regions. [more - original PR]
