The third runway at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) was officially commissioned on November 25, marking a key milestone of the airport’s expansion into a three-runway system (3RS). 

The construction works of 3RS started in August 2016. The formation of 650 hectares of land (equivalent to 34 Victoria Parks) through reclamation was completed in around four years. The 3,800m-long runway started operation in July 2022. The expansion of Terminal 2, construction of T2 Concourse, a new baggage handling system and automated people mover system are scheduled for completion in 2024 on time and within budget.
