Edward Lau, Chief Executive Officer of Jetstar Hong Kong Airways Limited, said that although the usage of Hong Kong International Airport has become saturated, lost-cost airlines can survive even without building the third runway.


According to Hong Kong International Airport, the current two-runway system can only handle 420,000 flight movements. A three-runway system is necessary as it can accommodate 620,000 flight movements per year, fulfilling the air traffic growth in 2030.


Lau pointed out that building the third runway or not would not affect the operation of low-cost airlines much. He explained that there is still space for budget airlines as “the usage of HKIA has not reached its full capacity during non-peak hours” under two-runway system.


“The standby time needed for low-cost flights is only around 25-40 minutes, while at least 2 hours for those full-service flights,” said Lau. The flight schedule of low-cost airlines is therefore more flexible and they can make good use of non-peak hours. They can survive under two-runway system.
