Hong Kong is a key aviation hub thanks to the 24-hour Hong Kong International Airport, which is served by more than 100 airlines that provide connections to most of the world’s major cities. This gateway to the city is consistently ranked among the best airports in the world and offers the ‘HKG My Flight’ app for download, allowing you to get flight and airport information at your fingertips.

Transport to and from the airport within Hong Kong
Getting to and from Hong Kong International Airport from within this global city is easy, convenient and relatively inexpensive.

The MTR’s high-speed Airport Express is the fastest transport link to the airport and takes approximately 24 minutes to reach Hong Kong Island. Airport Express passengers can catch a free shuttle bus from Kowloon and Hong Kong stations to major hotels. Both these stations also provide free in-town check-in services for major airlines when you’re returning to the airport. Please contact your airline for further information.

Special ticket rates for AMP Global 2019 delegates will be available shortly!

Taxis are readily available from the taxi pick-up area in front of the airport’s Arrivals Hall. If you’re travelling to Hong Kong Island or Kowloon, you’ll need to catch a red taxi. If you’re headed for the New Territories, you’ll need a green taxi, whilst those going to Lantau Island will require a blue taxi. All taxis in Hong Kong are able to take passengers to and from the airport. Fares are metered and detailed information about charges are clearly displayed inside each cab.

There are 12 convenient Airbus ‘A’ routes that can take you from the airport to key locations on Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and in the New Territories (including Lantau Island) with fewer stops than an ordinary city bus. When you exit the Arrivals Hall, turn right to find the Airbuses and city buses.
