Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Wednesday, 15 July 2009

A new ferry route between Hong Kong International Airport and Nansha Port in Guangzhou has been officially launched to further enhance connectivity between the airport and the Pearl River Delta (PRD).

The new ferry service also increases the number of PRD ports and weekly cross-boundary ferry trips served by SkyPier to seven and more than 500, respectively.

The new route is operated by Panyu Nansha Passenger Terminal Transport, and TurboJET, the operating brand of Shun Tak-China Travel Ship Management, has been appointed as its sole agent.

Currently, the 60-minute sailing departs from Nansha Port at 09:30 and leaves HKIA at 15:30 each day.

Passengers of China Airlines, EVA Airways, Japan Airlines and Mandarin Airlines can enjoy additional convenience by checking in their luggage at Nansha Port and receiving it at their final destination. Cathay Pacific Airways and Dragonair will also offer this service.

 With the addition of the Nansha Port-HKIA route, SkyPier now operates 72 daily ferry trips to and from seven PRD ports: Nansha, Shenzhen's Shekou and Fuyong, Dongguan's Humen, Zhongshan, Zhuhai's Jiuzhou and Macau.

 The ferry pier has served over 8.5 million passengers since its inauguration, and the Airport Authority is set to commence a new permanent SkyPier by the end of this year. Eight times larger than the current facility and connected to Terminals 1 and 2 by Automated People Mover, the permanent SkyPier will enhance the overall travel experience for passengers.
