After the opening of its fanfarers in 1925, until its closure almost 45 years later on 6 July 1998, Kai Tak was Hong Kong's main airport, which provided passengers with great pleasure to air passengers arriving to or departing from the British British colony.
But the aircraft, which narrated almost all its length to Victoria Harbor, on the northern hills and on three sides of high-rise buildings, was always difficult for airplanes. For some flights, competitors and masonry conditions were often used for scary landing!
An airport with only one trajectory, designed and built in the era of lesser propeller aircraft, began fighting since the boat, especially after the Boeing 747 was introduced, and when Airbus started its two-story A380 super aircraft, the recording was on the Kai-Tak wall.
After Hong Kong's return to China, when the UK colony rental was up, the new masters decided to build an artificially built island further along the coast, but one is a much simpler approach than Kai Tak.
This was not a complicated approach to pilots who eventually forced the transfer of Hong Kong airport, but rather the need to increase their capacity and ability to handle more traffic and bigger jet games. Hong Kong is also the world's largest cargo handling airport, and is a prominent center for entry to China, in addition to the fifth largest passenger airport in the world. When the Taki old airport simply could not solve the expected traffic in the location of such a strategic site in the South-East Asian trade.
Currently, all flights to Hong Kong International Airport Chep Lak Kok, which, nine years after its opening, added another terminal building in 2007. With two runs, the airport can reach nearly 50 million passengers per year, and 85 different airlines use this flight to reach 150 destinations worldwide.
Hong Kong International Airport is located 18 kilometers west of this obsolete predecessor, designed and built for the 21st Century, which is designed and built superbly, but operators do not stop at the laurel. Reconstruction and refinement plans have already begun and changes to the exit layouts & # 39; Immigration halls, as well as structural improvements and taxes to cope with ever-increasing traffic. The construction of the third track has even spoken about the fact that the airport will firmly cement this place with a train in the southern China.
