    Hong Kong airport development plans / Discussion with a local doctor back from Gaza

    On today's Backchat, we're talking about developments at the airport.

    In its annual report, the Airport Authority revealed that passenger traffic had reached 80 percent of pre-pandemic levels, with full recovery expected by the end of this year.
    The numbers come as the three-runway system is poised to be commissioned around the same time, while the main terminal will be integrated with SKYCITY and Tung Chung through an autonomous transport system poised to start in 2028.
    But despite the encouraging figures, it isn't all plain sailing. Speaking to local media, the authority's acting CEO Vivian Cheung warned that Russian airspace restrictions remained a hindrance, as Western carriers are banned from flying over Russia owing to sanctions over the invasion of Ukraine, leading to greater fuel costs.
    How well is the airport's recovery proceeding? Is Hong Kong keeping up with the competition? How much of an impact do geopolitical conflicts have? We'll talk to the experts.
    After 9:45, we speak to a doctor who just came back from Gaza.

    Ombudsman report on elderly Community Care Service Vouchers / Breast cancer

    主持人:Danny Gittings and Mike Rowse

    On Friday's Backchat, we look into the accessibility of the Pilot Scheme on Community Care Service Voucher for the Elderly.

    This comes as the Ombudsman released findings of its investigation into the scheme, noting "obvious progress" but calling on the Social Welfare Department to address lacking quotas in six districts which include Eastern, Southern, Wong Tai Sin, Sha Tin, Islands and Yuen Long.
    Launched in October 2020, the third phase subsidises eligible citizens who need to purchase elderly care services ranging from meal delivery to day care.
    And while praised as a compassionate initiative, the mechanism isn't exempt from criticism, with some groups pointing out at a lack of clarity on eligibility criteria.
    So what is this scheme all about? Who is eligible? And how does it differ from the Elderly Healthcare Voucher? We will find out.
    After 9:45, we speak with the Hong Kong Breast Cancer Foundation.
