Hong Kong Airport

Hong Kong Airport

Hong Kong International Airport, located in Lantau Island, 40 km away from the urban area is one of the 10 big harbor airports in the world. There are daily services to almost every corner of the world, which includes America, Europe, Canada, mainland China, South African, and Indonesia, Japan, Middle East, Austria and Southeastern Asia Nations. The main airline companies in Hong Kong are Guotai and Ganglong companies.  

Hong Kong is the main gateway to China and much of East Asia. Therefore, the international air service is excellent and the fierce competition keeps the fares relatively low compared to the neighboring countries.
