Hong Kong International Airport is the only commercial airport in Hong Kong. Located at Chek Lap Kok on Lantau Island, on average, it take around 45 minutes to commute to major CBDs. The quickest transportation means is Airport Express, a high speed train service from the airport. Taxis and buses are also available, of which the former attracts a high fee and the latter prompts a longer journey.

Hong Kong International Airport is one of the world's busiest yet most efficient airport. The majority of passengers would be able to complete immigration, baggage claim, and customs check within 30 to 45 minutes upon arrival. Departing passengers are still recommended to spare 2 to 3 hours at the airport, where there are plenty of dining, shopping and entertainment choices.
