Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) has extended its relief package by two months, to March 31.
Under the terms of the package, various fee waiver or concession policies supporting Hong Kong International Airport stakeholders will continue. These include full waivers of parking charges for idle passenger aircraft and airbridge fees; reduction of passenger aircraft landing charges; and fee reduction related to ramp handling, maintenance and airside vehicles. Also extended are rental reduction for terminal tenants covering lounges and offices; fees waiver for terminal licensees including ancillary passenger services, commercial services counters and cross-border transport operators; and concessions on fees for aviation support services such as into-plane fuelling, aircraft maintenance and inflight catering services.
The rental relief for retail and catering tenants will also continue. Most of the shops and restaurants in the terminal have suspended business and their rental is waived. The base rent is also waived for those that remain open to provide essential services.
The relief measures will be adjusted according to changing circumstances, the airport authority stressed.
