Hong Kong International Airport will begin to impose a new airport tax beginning 1 August 2016 for all departures ex-Hong Kong. This will affect all new and existing tickets issued for travel after 1 August 2016, covering all passengers leaving Hong Kong including transit and transfer passengers on all scheduled flights. The tax also covers ferry-to-air services.

The new tax coded G3: Airport Construction Fee (ACF) is for the purpose of constructing a three-runway system at HKIA.
