The new Midfield Concourse at Hong Kong International Airport has become fully operational

The new Midfield Concourse equips Hong Kong International Airport with sufficient handling capacity to strengthen the city's competitiveness as a leading regional and international aviation hub. A Mott MacDonald-Arup Joint Venture, the project was also consulted on by various firms such as Aedas (architecture), Atkins (airfield), BSLD (lighting), Dutton Bray (signage), OTC (terminal planning) and TDS (retail).

Located to the west of Terminal 1 and between the two existing runways at the airport, the five-level concourse has a total floor area of 105,000 sq-m with ceiling heights comparable to those of Terminal 1. It includes 20 aircraft parking stands, 19 of which are bridge-served, including two Code F stands that are wide enough to cater for the double-deck A380. Passengers are connected to Terminal 1 via an extended automated people mover (APM).

The concourse can handle an additional 10 million passengers a year. for the airport and has been in the works since 2010. Its design architecturally respects and complements the existing Terminal 1 (T1), while incorporating the latest thinking in aviation, passenger expectation and sustainability. Passengers will be able to experience HKIA's latest ambience experience with more landscaping and fresher colours than ever before, and at the APM concourse, passengers alighting the train are presented with an impressive 8m x 40m long blue cast glass wall by artist Graham Jones.
