Chek Lap Kok - Hong Kong International Airport

Hong Kong International Airport, also known as Chek Lap Kok, was built on an island made by reclaimed land, just outside Lantau Island, in 1998. The purpose was to replace Kai Tak Airport on Kowloon, that was too close to residential buildings and had too little space for expansion. It is one of the busiest airports in Asia, and has one of the world's largest terminal buildings, Terminal 1. It is the primary hub for Cathay Pacific and other HK airlines. More then 100 airlines operate to 180 cities all over the world. Chek Lap Kok covers an area of 1 255 hectares and has 66 boarding gates.
