Airport Express Tips (49)

Airport Express & Octopus Cards

We got Airport Express return tickets on arrival, which were HK$160 each (~£13) and included shuttle bus transfers right to the hotel entrance. Unfortunately, we had to leave early to catch our return flight and the buses only start running after 6am, so we had to get a taxi to Kowloon station on the way back, but that only cost HK$43 (£3.40), so not exactly a fortune.

We were extremely surprised the first morning to find that our 5-year old Octopus cards were still valid and immediately loaded them up with HK$100 each, which did us for the whole week, including a couple of snacks from 7/11 shops.

To and From Hong Kong airport via Airport Express

You can buy one of the two available packages for airport express (one way, or both ways) that include unlimited MRT rides for three days. If you were to be in Kowloon for three days and plan to ride on MRT often, they are good deal. If not, just buy one way or two way tickets. They are called Airport Express Travel Pass.

I just came back from HK and found the two-way airport express with 3-day unlimited MRT rides very convenient.〈=eng&catid=10000

Once you get off the station, just ask at the shuttle counter. They will tell you which shuttle to take.

Good luck!

Air train Express

This tip might be a bit redundant but still..

Catching the airport express is the fastest and easiest way and yes it convinient too.
The biggest asset im my opionion is not the express itself but the Intown check in (atleast when flying with one world alliance) as can add so many extra hours in town instead of spending them on airport

Get in time to airport use Airport express:)

Easy and convenient

The operating hours are 0550 to 0115 daily. Trains run at 12-minute intervals. The journey time between Airport and downtown is about 24 minutes.

The station downtown is very modern and clean. Everything is well signposted. We found it a very pleasant experience.

Airbus -When you arrived Hong Kong Airport

Airbus is the most convience transport in Hong Kong. When you come out from the arrival, pick you lauggue, you can see the singal board, (photo at your left hand side). There are two main route of buses. FIrst with a "A" in front of a number e.g. A11. It is usually a 'Express" bus which is the faster bus carrying you to the destination. Second one with a "E" in front of the number E31. It is a much slower, because it needs to stop quite a lot bus-stop. It picks lot of people. Usually we like to go to the upper deck " they are usually double deck" so it can view more and see far away.

Airport Express Lines (AEL)

The fastest way to travel from Hong Kong International Airport to downtown is by the AEL.
It stops in Tsing Yi, Kowloon, and Hong Kong Island (central). It takes approx 23 minutes to get to the Central Station in Hong Kong Island.

This is also the most expensive way to travel. From airport to Tsing Yi costs around $60 and to Kowloon $90 one way per person.

The ticket counter is located in the middle of the arrival hall. Free shuttle buses are provided for major hotels

Airport Express

Public transport in general is super-efficient, fast and cheap. The airport express leaves many other world cities in the dust! It's a comfy 30-minute whizz from Chek Lap Kok airport to the heart of Hong Kong.

Check-in areas in the city centre stations also ensure a stress-free time on the way back to airport. Excellent stuff!

Travelling from and to airport is very easy.

From airport, you can travel to downtown of Hong Kong by airport express. It's very fast, convenient and cheaper than taxi or bus.

When you collect the luggage at belt, come out to the departure hall and looking for the sign that show "Train to the city".

When you return to airport from Airport Express station, you will reach the check in counter area of many airlines.

Airport Express

The new airport is located on a island far from the city. Take the airport express train to the city center and from there take a cab to your hotel. It's much cheaper and you can get a discount if you're a group.
Taxi fare to Central Station (IFC) it's about 300-350 HKD.
When you leave HK and you have to check-out hotel at noon, Airport Express is the right choice because you can check-in your luggage in the city center and then move around the city. The ride to the airport it's about 25 minutes.

Airport Express - The speediest way into town

The Airport Express to and from Hong Kong is just possibly the most efficient such transit link I've ever encountered. Part of Hong Kong's metro system, it starts at Central on Victoria Island and makes two pit-stops, one at Kowloon Station and the other at Tsing Yi, before it gets to the terminal. You can check in at both Central and Kowloon stations, which allows you to go straight to immigration and the departure lounge without having to endure the lines inside the terminal.

With shuttle buses from major hotels -- or one of HK's reasonably priced taxis -- getting to one of the stations is a breeze, too. And how much does it cost? For a single/day return, the fare ranges between HK$60 and HK$100, depending on the station where you board. Travel time is about 23 minutes from Central.
