    Overflight Permits in Hong Kong’s International Operations

    While overflight permits are typically not required to transit Hong Kong airspace, it’s essential to understand that the airway structure in this region is highly complex. Some operators have faced routing issues, and any mistakes in your overflight routing can lead to rejection of your flight plan by VHHH ATC. This rejection can effectively ground your aircraft at its departure point, causing significant disruptions to your operations. To mitigate this risk, it is advisable to thoroughly review the Aeronautical Information Publications (AIPs) and check for any relevant Notices to Airmen (NOTAMs). Ensure that your overflight routing adheres to the acceptable routes specified for transiting Hong Kong airspace. If VHHH ATC identifies any issues with your flight plan, they will promptly notify the originator, and proactive preparation and route planning are essential to prevent such scenarios.

    Landing Permits in Hong Kong's International Operations

    For business aircraft traveling to VHHH, landing permits are generally required, with few exceptions. Private non-revenue and charter (non-scheduled commercial) flights should be prepared for a permit lead time of three business days. However, it’s important to note that if you are conducting a charter to VHHH for the first time or if you’re an infrequent operator, it is highly recommended to submit your landing permit requests at least two weeks in advance of the day of operation. Charter flights often involve additional documentation that must be reviewed by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), and corrections may be needed, which can consume additional time. CAA is usually willing to accept shorter notice landing permit requests from private non-revenue and charter operators with pre-existing documentation on record. Ensure compliance with these requirements to facilitate smooth operations when flying to Hong Kong.
