Hong Kong posts biggest airport passenger decline since 2009

On Sunday, the 15th of December 2019, official data released from the China-controlled island city of Hong Kong, which had been on the verge of a downhill slope to lose its status of Asia’s largest Financial HubSpot amid a six-month long pro-democracy protest, had reported the largest drop in Hong Kong Airport passenger numbers in November since the era of great financial depression of 2009, as Chinese big-league investors appeared to have turned their tails, while the number of international tourists in Hong Kong fell to a record-low figure amid violent protests which seemed to have become a daily debarkation in the China-controlled island city following death of a student two weeks earlier.

On top of that, according to a statement from the Hong Kong Airport Authority that released on Sunday (December 15th), the Hong Kong International Airport had dealt with only five million passengers on November, roughly 16.2 per cent down on a year-on-year basis.

Besides, data from Hong Kong’s Civil Aviation Department’s official website had shown that the fall was the largest since June 2009 as beforementioned while the passenger numbers were dropped by 18.7 per cent, while the number of passengers in the Hong Kong International airport fell by more than 12 per cent between September to November, data from Civil Aviation Department had revealed.

Meanwhile, a spokeswoman of Hong Kong’s airport authority had declined to comment over the subject-matter given the extent of turbulence the island city was experiencing since June this year following a Chinese Government’s move to set in motion an extradition law for the Hong Kong city dwellers.
