As one of the most important aviation hubs in Asia, Hong Kong has several major legislation governing the activities of the aviation industry and certain aspects that touch on aviation related issues. These include the Civil Aviation Ordinance (Cap 448), Aviation Security Ordinance (Cap 494), the Airport Authority Ordinance (Cap 483), the Trade Description Ordinance (Cap 362) and the Competition Ordinance (Cap 619). International conventions may also apply to passenger claims, particularly in situations involving liability for injury and death to passengers, baggage claims and flight delays.
