Chek Lap Kok (HKG)


Hong Kong's new airport, Chek Lap Kok, was opened for business on July 6, 1998 on Lantau Island. It replaces the airport at Kai Tak and is one of the world's busiest international airports for both passengers and cargo.

Three types of taxis (urban, New Territories and Lantau) are available at the airport. Each serves specified areas. Urban (red) taxis provide services to the whole of Hong Kong but cannot operate on the closed roads on Lantau, including Tung Chung Road.

New Territories (green) taxis provide services only between the airport/Ground Transportation Centre and certain districts in the New Territories. They are not permitted to operate elsewhere on Lantau and in other areas at Chek Lap Kok.

Lantau (blue) taxis serve the whole of the Lantau, including Tung Chung Road and all areas of the airport, but are not permitted to operate beyond these areas.

Taxi passengers using the Lantau Link are required to pay an additional fare of $30 irrespective of the direction of travel, and additional fares are also charged with for using toll tunnels. Total taxi fares from Central and Tsim Sha Tsui to the airport are estimated to be a minimum of $45 and $37 respectively. For on-site tourist information, the Hong Kong Tourist Association has a booth in the arrivals hall that can offer advise with fares.

Please note that many hotels have specific recommendations regarding the most expedient transportation from the airport. Consider contacting the concierge of your hotel when making plans.
