The best way to check in is online where you can pick your seat and print your boarding card. If you’re travelling with carry on baggage only, you can print off your own boarding pass and we’ll see you at the gate.

You’ll find our desks in Aisle E of Terminal 1. Check in starts from three and a half hours before departure and closes one hour before departure.
'In town' check in
If you're getting the Airport Express to the airport, you can check in at the Hong Kong or Kowloon stations on your day of departure up until 90 minutes before take off. They are open from 06:00 – 22.25 daily.
