The operator of Hong Kong’s main airport has sold bonds for US$1.5 billion to fund development of a third runway, its first deal offering US-based investors the opportunity to participate.

The transaction was the second aviation deal in Hong Kong this week after Cathay Pacific raised US$870 million in five year convertible bonds to help the airline shore up liquidity.

Construction of the airport’s third runway is expected to be finished in 2022 and should be fully operational by 2024, according to the airport’s website.
