“One of the cleanest and most efficient airport I’ve ever been to and traveling is part of my job. Food is great, everyone speaks English, signs are clearly marked, and the floors are so clean. Best of all, this place has free WiFi without making you watch ads! Take that Newark!!!”
—Daphne L (Bensalem, United States)
“One of the best airports in the world. The HK express train station gets you downtown in 20 minutes and cost hkd 100. Buy your SIM card as soon as you get out of immigration. Takes literally two minutes including installation of your sim and costs usd $12 for unlimited data for a week. Forget the roaming packages of the us carriers.”
—Yag P (Chatham, United States)
“This airport is probably one of the best airports in terms of efficiency and customer experience. Going in, we dropped off our luggage and the associate responsible for our luggage reminded us that a couple of the luggage pieces were overloaded and just gave us a warning. Otherwises, she didn’t have to give us a fee to pay for a overloaded luggage. The place has lots of shops, restaurants and other services like currency exchange and internet service. The Wi-Fi service lasts 2 hours each time you sign in but you can always sign in unlimited times as you wish. The airport has 7 floors as the 3rd floor leads you to the buses and taxis. The 5th floor is where are the arrivals are. The 7th floor is where are the departures happen whether it is domestic or international. This is also the hub for Cathay Pacific as this is their home office as well.”
—Clinton K (Burnaby, Canada)
Hong Kong International Airport has a total of 90 boarding gates, with a total of 78 jet bridge gates, and 12 virtual gates; which are used as assembly points for passengers, who are then ferried to the aircraft by apron buses. The airport has two terminals, Terminal 1 and Terminal 2.
Terminal 1 was the largest airport passenger terminal building. It briefly conceded the status to Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport, when the latter opened on September 2016., but reclaimed the title when the East Hall was expanded. Terminal 1’s title as the world’s largest was surrendered to Beijing Capital International Airport Terminal 3 on 2008.
The airport’s SkyPlaza is located at Terminal 2, along with the Airport Station’s Platform 3. Terminal 2 is only a check-in and processing facility for departing passengers with no gates or arrival facilities. So far, most low-cost carriers and some full-service carriers have relocated their operations to Terminal 2 as well.
