Mismanagement of HK Civil Aviation Dept Highlighted
Doubts about the viability of a new air traffic control system purchased three years ago to replace the outdated system at Hong Kong’s International Airport has led to criticism from the country’s lawmakers.
Safety, management, infrastructure and administrative issues must be resolved if the Hong Kong Civil Aviation Department wish to be taken seriously. A series of mistakes have been made that are adding up financially, particularly the HK$575 million air traffic control system, which cannot be implemented due to the failure of safety tests.
As a modern international airport, and a hub for the region, the issues are a source of embarrassment for the government.
