There is now sufficient parking for business aircraft at Chep Lap Kok Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA), according to Hong Kong Business Aviation Centre (HKBAC). Slots, while still hard to get at times, are more manageable after the airport designated six daily slots that are guaranteed for use by business aviation operations, daily between 16:00 and 20:59.

Henry Ho, assistant manager-business development, said a trial period that lasted until March 31, 2019, had now been extended until March 31, 2020, following "positive feedback" from operators. Ho added that in general slot applications are required "14 days in advance" but these slots are routinely available at shorter notice, being what business aviation often needs by its nature.

On parking, he said, "There are no more parking issues at Hong Kong as long as you give four to five days' notice, ideally." The parking is either on HKBAC's large ramp or at designated remote stands around HKIA.
