HKIA Terminal 1 to get HK$2b facelift

Local | 10 Jan 2019 6:05 pm

Airport officials have announced a HK$2 billion facelift for Terminal 1 to cope with an expected rise in passenger numbers.

The authority's latest facelift for the terminal, which was opened in 1998, raises the total price tag of renovations to HK$9 billion, RTHK reported.

Officials said 12 zones featuring three themes will be created across the passenger concourse, providing entertainment facilities, family corners and resting areas for transit passengers.

E-boarding gates that support facial recognition will also be installed.

The general manager of the terminal, Chapman Fong, said boarding times are expected to be shortened because there will be a total of five channels – up from two currently.

There will also be newly designed seats, and toilets will be renovated.

The project is expected to be completed in 2021.

To prepare for the opening of a skybridge that connects the terminal to the North Satellite Concourse, gates 15 to 22 will be renumbered to five to 12, from March 28.
