Airport Information

Hong Kong International Airport
Visitors to Hong Kong are served by one of the world's largest and most modern airports. Situated at Chek Lap Kok on Lantau Island, Hong Kong International Airport truly makes Hong Kong the gateway to Asia. A variety of transportation options are available for people travelling between Hong Kong International Airport and Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, New Territories and Lantau Island: rail, bus, ferry and taxi services.

Operated by the MTR Corporation, the high-speed Airport Express (AEL) rail service takes passengers to Hong Kong Station in Central, via Tsing Yi and Kowloon, in only 23 minutes. The one-way adult fare from the airport to Hong Kong Island is HK$100. Trains run every 10 minutes from 5:50am-1:00am daily and free shuttle-bus services to major hotels are available for AEL users.

There are more than 30 franchised bus routes from the airport, including nine Airbus services that have fewer stops than conventional buses. Airbus fares range between HK$14 and HK$45. Ferry links between Chek Lap Kok Pier and Tuen Mun Pier in the New Territories run from 6:00am-11:00pm daily. Taxis to almost anywhere in Hong Kong are readily available from the taxi pick-up area. A typical journey between the airport and Central costs about HK$330; and Tsim Sha Tsui the fare is HK$270.

All passengers 12 and above must pay an Air Passenger Departure Tax (APDT) of HK$80 (which is normally included in the price of the ticket). Passengers who arrive and depart Hong Kong within the same day are exempted from paying such a tax.

Beginning 1 May 2002, an additional HK$13 Airport Security Surcharge (ASS) will be collected from passengers departing Hong Kong International Airport in order to maintain the current standards of safety, security and passenger services. This is in addition to the existing HK$20 security charge already collected by airlines on behalf of the Hong Kong Airport Authority. This will bring the total security charge paid by passengers to HK$33.
