Hong Kong Airport Construction Fee

Airport Construction Fee (ACF)

The Airport Construction Fee (ACF) is collected on air tickets issued on or after 1 August 2016 as part of the financial arrangement for the three-runway system (3RS).

Airlines will collect the ACF from departing passengers, including origin-destination and transit/transfer, at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) when air tickets are issued.

The ACF collection will be in effect until all borrowings related to the 3RS project are fully repaid. The charging rate of the ACF is fixed throughout the collection period.

The charging rate is based on the charging regime as shown in the table below.
