"The capacity of Canberra Airport, our large student population and our tourism attraction is all part of these discussions," a Ministerial spokesperson said, adding: "The Government was working with Canberra Airport on attracting airlines both domestic and international to Canberra and we are hoping that they can attend the meeting with Hong Kong Airlines".
