HONG KONG — Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) Friday successfully completed its emergency exercise for this year.
The annual exercise, which involved around 1,000 representatives from about 30 organizations and government departments, is an aerodrome licensing requirement mandated by the Civil Aviation Department of Hong Kong.
This is the first full-scale simulation since the airport's operation and control functions were merged into the Integrated Airport Center earlier this year.
