Kai Tak Revive
On July 6 1998, Hong Kong’s Kai Tak international airport took its last flight and closed its doors, moving all operations at the airport to the current Hong Kong International Airport. Although it has been 21 years since then, its legacy continues to live on. For example, right here on VATSIM, the Hong Kong vACC continues to keep Kai Tak under the ICAO code VHHX as one of the airports it controls.

Flying into the current Hong Kong international airport (VHHH) is discouraged as it will cause conflicts with the heavy traffic expected. And also the airports weren't built the coexist in real life.
Runway 13 will be in use, however if the winds are too poor for 13 they will change it upon notice. If you wish to land on Runway 31, expect significant delays.
