HKIA to Renumber Boarding Gates and Parking Stands

A number of boarding gates and parking stands at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) are to be renumbered so that they tie in with the Sky Bridge that will connect the Terminal 1 and North Satellite Concourse (NSC).

The Sky Bridge, a 200-metre long weatherproof footbridge equipped with travelators, will reduce passenger travel time and the need for using shuttle buses. Rising 28 metres above the ground, the Sky Bridge will allow Airbus A380 aircraft, one of the largest passenger aircraft in the world, to taxi underneath. The Sky Bridge will feature catering outlets, providing scenic spots and relaxation spaces for passengers.

The first phase of the renumbering will be implemented in March 2019, 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 increases as passengers walk further into the terminal. The renumbering exercise will follow the same logic.

On 28 March 2019, 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.

In tandem with the renumbering, HKIAs directional signage will be updated and additional staff will be deployed to provide extra assistance for passengers in finding boarding gates during the initial period. Notices will also be posted on HKIAs website as well as the HKG My Flight mobile app.
