Hong Kong Airport Passenger Volumes Lowest Since 1967: Chart
(Bloomberg) -- Air passenger volumes in Hong Kong continued their free fall last year, plunging to 1.35 million, the lowest since 1967, data from the Airport Authority Hong Kong and the city’s Census and Statistics Department show. Some of the world’s strictest border and Covid quarantine measures saw passenger numbers at the Asian financial hub’s airport drop 84.7% from 2020, the Airport Authority Hong Kong said in a statement Tuesday. One bright spot was cargo, with 2021 output rising to 5 million tons, up 12.5% year-on-year and exceeding the 4.8 million tons recorded in 2019, prior to the pandemic.
