What’s the Best Way to Get To and From the Airport?

The Hong Kong International Airport is located on an island over 30 kilometers from the center of the city. Despite its distance, there are many transport options, including taxis, buses, private coaches, and the MTR, Hong Kong’s rapid-transit system. The most direct route is via taxi, which you'll find inexpensive and comfortable. Especially when traveling with others, taking a taxi is the most affordable option. However, expect to pay extra for tolls and each piece of luggage.

The quickest option into the city is the Airport Express MTR line. From there, a taxi or the MTR can get you to your destination. Many hotels offer free shuttle service from MTR stations as well. The cheapest option for getting into the city is by taking the A21 bus that gets you into Kowloon in 45 minutes. Using public transport in Hong Kong requires an Octopus prepaid travel card.

The same options are available when going to the airport, however by taking the Airport Express MTR line, you can check in for your flight at Kowloon or Hong Kong Station. Select airlines offer an In-Town Baggage Check-In Service for passengers anytime from 90 minutes to one full day before departure. Once checked in, passengers are free to either explore the city or go directly to the airport baggage-free and proceed through security.
