Travellers leaving Hong Kong could continue paying airport construction fees until at least 2033 to help fund third runway, authority says

  • Airport Authority says it has been affected by lack of income from construction fees as a result of sharp drop in passenger numbers in past two years
  • Fees of HK$70 to HK$180 for travellers are one of three sources of funds for third runway project, which is expected to be completed in 2024
