Getting to the city
The Airport Express Line is a dedicated airport railway providing a fast and reliable service to downtown Hong Kong.

Scheduled hotel shuttle buses leave the airport regularly and take passengers to major hotels plus key transport interchanges, and there are a number of public bus (Airbus) routes from the airport.
