Category:Airports of Hong Kong[edit]

This should be up-merged to Category:Airports of the People's Republic of China. Hong Kong is an SAR but fully and completely part of China. Furthermore, there are only two airports in Hong Kong and one of those is military. It is unlikely there will ever be another, except possibly a small civil aviation field. The single airport they have is entirely built from land reclamation in the ocean. To support a category, you need a minimum number of articles, this has five. One is the main entry, which is very good. One is historical, which is also well written, one doesn't exist yet (the military field), and the other is a list of the items in the category (more superfluosity) This isn't enough to support a category.

  • Strong Keep. To repeat myself (copied from category talk:Airports of Macau), Hong Kong is a special administrative region. Civil aviation is part of its autonomy, and it concludes bilateral aviation agreements on its own right. Flights from Hong Kong to airports in mainland China are international flights. — Instantnood 08:34, Mar 15, 2005 (UTC)
    • this isn't about the politics of airflight, that can be mentioned in the article - you know, the ONE article that is actually about THE airport in Hong Kong. SchmuckyTheCat 09:40, 15 Mar 2005 (UTC)
      • If it is not politics I see no reason why airports are categorised according to political boundaries. There are quite a number of categories of airports with only one or two articles. Are you going to "up-merge" them according to continents and regions? — Instantnood 10:12, Mar 15, 2005 (UTC)
        • I'm not claiming a solution for anything but these two categories. That does seem like a reasonable solution! SchmuckyTheCat 18:50, 17 Mar 2005 (UTC)
          • It doesn't seem to be, to me. — Instantnood 19:26, Mar 17, 2005 (UTC)
  • Weak Delete. I'm not an expert on China, so I'll just base my decision on the number of airfields. It doesn't make sense to have a cat for one or two of them. -Kbdank71 14:22, 15 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep or MERGE with Macau. 20:27, 15 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Strongly Keep this category. Hong Kong is a special administrative region and different as People's Republic of China, but suggested to merge with category:Airports of Macau to increase the articles in that category. Shinjiman 07:53, 17 Mar 2005 (UTC)
    • Despite all insistance that "Hong Kong" is not "People's Republic of China", Hong Kong remains a part of the People's Republic of China. The only reason it can stay as a seperate category is probably because of the one country two systems formular. I agree that merging the Macau category with this one will make its existance much more viable.--Huaiwei 12:03, 17 Mar 2005 (UTC)
      • Comment: Is there any precedant? (please reply below) 16:09, Mar 17, 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep When people think of Hong Kong, people think Hong Kong, not People's Republic of China. Futhermore the Hong Kong Internation Airport and the Kai Tak International Airport are both airports of note and would be easier found in a Category "Hong Kong Airports" oirvine

  • Delete! Upmerge. MadreBurro 17:54, 23 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep. Hong Kong is part of PRC but it is an SAR, and it is common practice to list Hong Kong and Macau among PRC and other sovereign nations in areas where PRC have granted the two SARs autonomy. Removing this category will make it more difficult to find things. I am OK with merging it with Macau. -- Felix Wan 01:10, 2005 Mar 24 (UTC)
