AVSECO is jointly owned by the Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government and is led by our Executive Director, who reports directly to the Company's Board of Directors.
The Executive Director and members of the top management each have very many years of disciplined services background and experience, which when combined together give rise to an extensive and in-depth body of professional knowledge and skills.
We employ around 3,800 full-time staff and operate on a 24-hour a day basis, providing a wide range of AVSEC services at more than 50 locations at HKIA. The Company also owns and operates advanced 'state of the art' security equipment.
AVSECO has received many awards throughout the provision of its AVSEC services over the years at HKIA and won the "Outstanding Aviation Security Organisation's Merit Award" in 2000 and was voted the "Outstanding AVSEC Organisation" for the Aviation Security International Award of Excellence in 2001.
The Company received special recognition in 2003 for its contributions and commitment as a Business Partner to the Airport Authority Hong Kong. We continually strive to satisfy all clients to the very best of our ability and receive further acknowledgments.
The Company's services are independently assessed by various overseas aviation authorities and other organisations and are routinely ranked amongst the best, particularly in relation to international AVSEC practices.
One such award resulted from the annual survey conducted by Skytrax, an independent aviation research organisation that included AVSECO in the "Best Security Processing" award for 2007. The Award is based on criteria such as waiting times, courtesy and attitude of security staff, which is derived from over 7.8 million detailed passenger surveys covering 170 airports throughout the world.
