Hong Kong is a key aviation hub serviced by more than 100 airlines that connect the 24-hour Hong Kong International Airport to major cities throughout the world. It is the most visited places in the world (see here).

Travel from/to the airport

Hong Kong International Airport is located on Lantau Island. There are multiple connections from the airport to rest of the city.

The MTR’s high-speed Airport Express train takes approximately 24 minutes to reach Hong Kong Island. Airport Express passengers can catch a free shuttle bus from Kowloon and Hong Kong stations to major hotels. Both these stations also provide free in-town check-in services for major airlines for travellers returning to the airport.

Taxis are readily available from the taxi pick-up area in front of the airport’s Arrivals Hall. Taxi colours indicate their main destination: for travel to Hong Kong Island or Kowloon please use the red taxi; for travel to New Territories please use a green taxi; for travel around Lantau Island please use a blue taxi. All taxis in Hong Kong are able to take passengers to and from the airport. Fares are metered and detailed information about charges are clearly displayed inside each cab. Most taxi drivers in Hong Kong understand some English and Putonghua. Taxis do not accept credit card payments.

There are 12 convenient Airbus ‘A’ routes that take travellers from the airport to key locations on Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and in the New Territories (including Lantau Island) with fewer stops than an ordinary city bus. City buses can be found at the exit the Arrivals Hall on the right.

Travel from to one of eight ferry ports in the Pearl River Delta is also available. Ferry tickets are sold at the Mainland/Macau Ticketing Counter located at Transfer Area E2 in Terminal 1. Passengers will then take the automated people mover to SkyPier to board one of the high-speed ferries.

Travel within Hong Kong

Hong Kong is internationally famous for its safe, affordable and reliable public transport system that keeps the city moving. The most common means of transport within the city is the MTR.
