To / From Airport

All arrivals come into the Main Terminal Building's Arrival Hall. From there, after Customs, simply head straight ahead outside the airport where you'll see the Transportation Centre on the same level as the Arrival Hall. The location of various ground transportation services is given above.

Airport Express Line (AEL) - Rail

Fare to Kowloon

HK$90 one-way/single, HK$160 round-trip/return

Fare to Hong Kong Island (Central)

HK$100 one-way/single, HK$180 round-trip/return

Our recommended (and the quickest, most efficient) way to get into the city is via the sleek Airport Express Line, which provides comfortable, business-class seating and seat-back TVs with flight information, news, and entertainment programs. The train's route takes you across the coast of Lantau Island, over the Kap Shui bridge, through the viaducts on Ma Wan Island, across the massive Tsing Ma suspension bridge and down the fully-reclaimed land of West Kowloon before finally plunging under Victoria Harbour and rising up on Exchange Square in Central.

One of the largest engineering projects ever, the railway/highway line is one of the few in the world built as a dedicated link between an airport and a city center. Trains run every ten minutes between 5:50 a.m. and 1:15 a.m. and take 22 minutes to reach Kowloon Station near hotels in Tsim Sha Tsui and Yau Ma Tei,  and 24 minutes to reach Hong Kong Station in the Central District on Hong Kong Island. Both Kowloon and Hong Kong stations are served by free MTR shuttle buses and by taxi service. The Hong Kong station is not far from Central's MTR subway station. In addition, more than 15 hotels provide free shuttle service between Hong Kong or Kowloon Station to their hotel. MTR free shuttle bus numbers, times and routes are given below.

Certainly the easiest way into the city is to jump into one of the hundreds of metered, air-conditioned taxi cabs awaiting you at the airport and go. With the train, you'll need to get off and get a shuttle bus or a subway to get to your final destination. The taxi driver can, of course, hand your bags to your bellman! But at a price. Though relatively cheap for short distances, a Hong Kong taxi can be an expensive option for the long trip in from the airport. The price does include all bridge tolls and tunnel charges.
