Hong Kong's airport authority has named a new executive to oversee its upcoming expansion projects.
John Chai, who will be Airport Authority Hong Kong's (AAHK) executive director of projects, will come on board on 24 October.
He will be involved in the planning, development and implementation of AAHK's several expansion projects to meet Hong Kong International Airport's (HKIA) medium and long-term growth demands.
Additional aircraft parking stands, development of the Midfield and the proposed expansion into a three-runway system fall under the new projects' category.
Chai will also head the projects department to ensure the timely completion of work. He will be reporting to AAHK's chief executive, Stanley Hui.
He worked in several departments within the Hong Kong government before he was promoted to director of the civil engineering and development department. He retired from the government in 2011.
