Landing permits, Prior Permissions Required (PPRs), and airport slots are needed for all travel to Hong Kong (VHHH). A trip to Hong Kong – involving multiple request procedures to various airport authority departments – requires more pre-planning than those to most other international locations. For any operation to Hong Kong, it’s best to have your 3rd-party provider and ground handler involved in the planning process early on.

The following is an overview of what you need to know:

1. Landing permit requirements

Landing permits are needed for all aircraft traveling to VHHH – both private non-revenue and charter (non-schedule commercial). For private flights official permit lead time is three business days. Charter operations officially require seven days’ permit lead time. However, three days’ lead time is often sufficient, assuming the operator has all required documentation in place. Short-notice permits, within three days’ lead time, are possible for private flights only. VHHH permits are valid for +/- 72 hours. Normal Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) hours for processing permits are Monday-Friday, 0900-1800 local, and CAA is closed weekends and holidays. If CAA is closed at the time of your request, Air Traffic Control (ATC) has the ability to process short-notice permits.

2. Landing permit documentation

For landing permit requests, operators must provide certificates of airworthiness and registration, a noise certificate and evidence of appropriate worldwide liability insurance. Note that CAA is very particular in terms of format and wording on your insurance policy. We’ve seen permits denied due to incorrectly placed or missing information, which in some cases may be a comma. It’s always best to check with your 3rd-party provider on the exact insurance documentation verbiage required for operations to VHHH.
