The airport was opened in 1925 and closed on the 6th of july,1998.The last arrival recorded was HOA 841 and the last departure recorded was CPA3340.The airport was and is known for its dangerous approach to rwy 13(IGS 13 approach) combined with the rough weather,the terrain near the airport and the surrounding skyscrapers.

On the 10th anniversary of Kai Tak's closing,Hong Kong VACC is hosting a VATSIM event wherein all the controller positions at VHHX and VHHH will be staffed.
