Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) has redesignated the existing North Runway (07L/25R) at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) as the Centre Runway (07C/25C), signifying an important milestone for the expansion of the airport into a three-runway system (3RS).

The new Third Runway will be put into operation in 2022.

At midnight on December 2, the North Runway of HKIA was closed to undergo the final redesignation procedures.
