AAHK noted that the HKSAR Government lifted restrictions on arrival flights from nine countries on April 1 and a total of 1,185 flights carrying passengers operated at HKIA in April, while 1,050 flights were recorded in March.
During the month, passenger traffic to and from Southeast Asia experienced the most significant increases.
"The decline in cargo throughput was mainly attributed to 6% year-on-year decreases in both imports and exports, due to insufficient cargo capacity. The overall cargo to and from Europe experienced the most significant decreases during the month," AAHK said.
On a 12-month rolling basis, AAHK said cargo volume increased by 5.7% to 1.5 million and 4.9 million tonnes, respectively. Meanwhile, flight movements rose by 12.2% to 144,450.
