"Not everyone can check in at the Airport Express" Airport Express Tip by sonnynyc

Airport Express, Hong Kong: 49 reviews and 37 photos

Hong Kong has a convenient service where you can check in right in Hong Kong's downtown area, at the Hong Kong MTR station (connected to Central MTR station). I've used it several times when I fly to other countries. Just go there, check in (and grab your airplane seat), and then hang out around downtown for the last few hours before you jet off!

Unfortunately for American citizens (or any nationals) who are flying to the USA, you are UNABLE to use this service. Due to increased security, you *must* go to the airport to check in your luggage.

Very annoying but in this insecure, paranoid world for Americans...

Type: Airplane

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
