Hong Kong Airport revamp

A number of boarding gates and parking stands at Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) are being renumbered in March to help passengers find their way with the introduction of a Sky Bridge to connect Terminal 1 and the North Satellite Concourse (NSC).

The Sky Bridge, a 200m long weatherproof footbridge equipped with travellators, is one of the enhancement projects at Terminal 1 to increase capacity and provide a hassle-free experience for airport users.

The first phase of the renumbering will be in March, with the second phase following the completion of the Sky Bridge in 2020.

Currently, the boarding gates and parking stands at Terminal 1 are numbered so that the smaller numbers are the closest to the entrances of the restricted area, and numbers increase as passengers walk further into the terminal.

Authorities say the renumbering exercise will follow the same logic, and provide a clear sequence for passengers. Signage will also be updated and extra staff deployed.

On 28 March, Terminal 1 boarding gates and parking stands 15 to 22 will be changed to numbers 5 to 12. Upon the completion of the Sky Bridge, the NSC boarding gates and parking stands 501 to 510 will be renumbered as 13 to 22.
