Access to departure Terminals 1 and 2 is being controlled and passengers are being urged to arrive at the airport three hours before departure.

Airports Council International (ACI) Asia-Pacific has strongly strong condemned the recent disruptions to airport operations at Hong Kong International Airport “which have deprived passengers the right to travel”.

“We stand in solidarity with our colleagues at Hong Kong International Airport and Airport Authority Hong Kong,” ACI said in a statement.

“The aviation industry is a close-knit community and we stand firm and united in bringing people together, ensuring the safety and security of the travelling public by offering a network of safe and secure airports.”

Hong Kong International has introduced a number of temporary measures to avoid a repetition of protests that forced the shutdown of airline operations on two occasions this week.

Access to departure Terminals 1 and 2 is being controlled and passengers are being urged to arrive at the airport three hours before departure.

Control points have also been set up at the AsiaWorld-Expo-bound and city-bound platforms of Airport Express, south and north downramps connecting to the ground transportation centre, and the walkway connecting to the Regal Airport Hotel.

Departing passengers are being told to head to the airport by public transport, while other members of the public, including those who may want to accompany departure passengers or meet arrival passengers at the airport, should not travel to the airport unless absolutely necessary.
