AAHK Welcomes The Expansion of Individual Visit Scheme

  • 2024-05-11

Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) welcomes the Central Government’s announcement to add eight Mainland cities to the Individual Visit Scheme (IVS). The expansion of the IVS is expected to strengthen air connections between Hong Kong and the eight cities, further boosting air traffic and passenger volume at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA).

 

Among the eight additional cities under the IVS, four currently have direct flight connections with HKIA. They are Taiyuan in Shanxi Province, Lanzhou in Gansu Province, Yinchuan in Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region and Urumqi in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. Airlines are planning to start operating scheduled flights to/from Harbin in Heilongjiang Province and add more flights to/from Urumqi in June 2024. 

 

Airlines are expected to increase direct flights connecting Hong Kong to those cities as ties are strengthened and economic activities increased.
