The Hong Kong Airport Express may not be the least expensive way to travel to and from Hong Kong Airport but it is definitely one of the most convenient.

The Airport express runs on 12 minute intervals between 05:50 and 01:15, and stops at three stations other than the airport - Tsing Yi, Kowloon and Central.

A one way ticket on the Airport Express is HK$ 100 for travel between Central and the airport, HK$ 90 between Kowloon station and the airport and HK$ 60 from Tsing Yi to the airport. Round trip tickets which are valid for a one month period are also available at slightly cheaper rates. Children between the ages of 3 and 11 travel for half those fares. The journey takes roughly 25 minutes either way.

What makes the Airport Express so convenient is the check in counters at both Kowloon and Central stations where travellers can check in their luggage and claim their boarding pass from one day in advance up to 90 minutes before departure. Unfortunately for passengers travelling to the United States this service has been suspended on many airlines, due to security measures, and we advise you to check with your airline for any change.

Free in-town check-in service is available for all major airlines at Hong Kong and Kowloon stations except:

Air Philippines 
Angel Air 
Continental Airlines 
Continental Micronesia 
Orient Thai 
Pakistan International 
Transaero 
Turkish Airlines

Passengers must use the Octopus Card or purchase a ticket to ride on the Airport Express before check-in.

The following airlines allow check-in one day prior to departure:

Aeroflot 
Cathay Pacific Airways 
China Airlines 
Dragonair 
Mandarin Airlines 
Qantas Airways 
Singapore Airlines 
South African Airlines 
Swiss International Air Line 
Thai Airways International
Vietnam Airlines

The service hours are from 5:30am to 11:00pm but it is worth checking with your airline as some airlines may operate the service subject to their flight schedules.

For travellers staying in major hotels around Kowloon or Hong Kong Island there are also complimentary bus services that run direct from the hotels to the closest Airport Express station. Check our guide to the Hong Kong Airport Express Free Bus Service to see if your hotel is listed.

Finally, the Airport Express offers you a comfortable and fast ride with in-seat entertainment and is one of the easiest ways to get into central Hong Kong. For a less expensive, and equally enjoyable, way to travel to and from the airport see: Hong Kong Airport Bus.
