Statement of Condemnation of the Disruption of Normal Airport Operation at Hong Kong International Airport
- 14 Aug 2019
ACI Asia-Pacific expresses our strong condemnation on the recent disruptions to airport operations at Hong Kong International Airport which have deprived passengers the right to travel.
Since July, a number of public protests were staged at Hong Kong International Airport. More recently, the protests on August 12 and 13 rendered significant disruptions to airport operations, including security risks and flight cancellations two days in a row.
We stand in solidarity with our colleagues at Hong Kong International Airport and Airport Authority Hong Kong. The aviation industry is a close-knit community and together, 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.
