Hong Kong Transport

Last updated by elysees at 12/16/2016

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.

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.    

Transportation to the airport

The Airport Express line is the fastest and most expensive way to get to/from the airport. You can also go by bus, taxi and underground.

Airport Express Line (AEL)
Airport express is the special railway for the airport. It is convenient and reliable. The 35.3km journey between the Airport and the city takes as long as 24 minutes. Trains run by the Airport Express Line depart from Hong Kong Station every 10 minutes from 5:50 to 0:48. And it stops at the Kowloon Station and Tsing Yi Station en route.
