Hong Kong Sky Bridge Opens to Offer New Airport Experience with Stunning View

The Sky Bridge at the airport is the longest airside bridge in the world

Airbus has confirmed that it will work with France, Germany, and Spain to build the Future Combat Air System (FCAS).

Beginning today, passengers at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) can use the new Sky Bridge, a 200-meter-long, 28-meter-high footbridge with escalators and an automated walkway, to conveniently travel between Terminal 1 (T1) and T1 Satellite Concourse (T1S).

The Sky Bridge at the airport is the longest airside bridge in the world, spanning a taxiway and allowing passage for the largest passenger aircraft with the code F, the A380. Passengers can experience the amazing sight of an aeroplane passing beneath their feet thanks to the exterior glazing and glass floor that have been installed on the bridge.

Sky Bridge gives travellers the highest vantage point at the airport with its distinctive panoramic view across the facility. In stages, the Sky Bridge’s observation deck, restaurant, and store will open.

The Airport Authority of Hong Kong’s Executive Director of Engineering & Technology, Ricky Leung, stated that “Sky Bridge is aspired to be the iconic feature at HKIA. With the surrounding scenery serving as the backdrop, it provides passengers with an amazing view of the entire airport. A brand-new location has been added for passengers to take pictures before continuing their journey. Our efforts to update and improve the passenger experience at HKIA include the Sky Bridge. We look forward to receiving visitors from all over the world along with other upgraded airport facilities. Before the Sky Bridge began operation, passengers had to board and disembark by shuttle bus at T1S.
