Located on the island of Chek Lap Kok, the Hong Kong International Airport is the nerve centre of the crisscrossing highways, bridges and railways covering the city. Inaugurated in July 1998 for commercial use, this airport sprawling over 1,255 hectares was originally designed by British architect Lord Norman Foster. Today it is counted as not only one of the largest but also most modern and technologically well-equipped airports ever built in the 20th century. Its two runways and two terminals cater to about 90 airlines world-wide, over 40 billion passengers and more than 3 million tones of cargo annually.
