CAREERS TEAM: Mentoring Programme – Workplace Visit (Hong Kong International Airport) ‹ BACK
A Workplace Visit was successfully held on April 11, 2017. On that day, 36 students from Form 3 to Form 5 visited the Hong Kong International Airport in Chek Lap Kok. The visit consists of a presentation on HKIA, a look at the exhibition about the airport's current and future development, and a tour of airport facilities.
During the visit, a representative of the HKIA delivered a presentation to our students. It was about HKIA's role as a gateway to the world, its contribution to the sustainable growth of Hong Kong's aviation industry and economy, its daily operations, its future development plan, and employment opportunities. Students will also relish the opportunity to learn more about all the green initiatives that have been implemented at the airport, eg. Energy and Carbon Management such as electric vehicles, Waste Management such as food waste and recycling.
Also, students had a chance to visit the Skydeck in Terminal 2 and the carpark for the electric vehicles. The visit provided a chance for students to broaden their horizons on the nature of the aviation industry.

Students’ feedback

I have learnt about the third runway and the forecast about what the government is doing for the reduction of carbon dioxide. The HKIA provides a good atmosphere for the passengers and lets passengers have a great experience in the HKIA.

Some staff introduced a lot of information about HKIA to us, such as the daily operation, development, etc. This information helped me a lot for planning my future, since my dream career is being a flight attendant. After I joined this visit, I have learnt more about my future working environment and also discovered how well the HKIA has done globally.

香港國際機場每天有大量的客流量,有機會造成大量浪費,例如:廚餘、電力、水,但機場管理局就將廚餘轉化為魚糧、有機肥料等,又將剩菜捐給有需要人士。另外,機場管理局將機場內十萬枝光管全部轉用LED,慳電之餘更可節省人力。最後,機場管理局用「三方供水」,可以大幅節省使用飲用水的數量。
透過機場管理局的管理經驗,我明白到即使面對難題,只要我們願意去改變,我們最後仍是可以成功的。

透過是次參觀,我可以更了解機場內部的運作,以及機場管理局努力為環保出一分力。從前我不知道乘搭飛機,背後有很多人力物力的支援,例如維修、控制等。經過這次參觀我獲益良多,增進了我的知識,大開了我的眼界。看到香港國際機場這麼大型的建設都可以做到環保,我希望自己都能為環保出一分力。
