The Board of the Airport Authority Hong Kong has accepted a proposal from Cathay Pacific Services to defer the completion of its new cargo terminal by a maximum of 24 months to mid 2013.

In March 2008, a non-exclusive, 20-year franchise was awarded to Cathay Pacific Services Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Cathay Pacific Airways, to operate a new cargo terminal at Hong Kong International Airport. The facility was originally scheduled for opening in the second half of 2011.

A Cathay spokesman said that the decision to apply for the deferral of the cargo terminal was taken in response to market conditions brought about by the global economic downturn.
