Hong Kong is served by Hong Kong Intl Airport, also commonly referred to as Hong Kong, Hong Kong Intl, or simply Hong Kong Airport. The airport code is HKG.
As the airport is only 20 minutes away from downtown Hong Kong on Lantau Island, there are a number of accommodation options convenient to the airport.

Travelling to and from Hong Kong International Airport is quick and simple with the Airport Express train, which will get you to the Tsing Yi Station within 20 minutes. Buses are the cheapest option and there are a number of systems that can get you where you want to go in the city. However, many of the hotels in the area offer airport coaches, so it is worth contacting your accommodation before arranging alternative transport.
If you’re looking for a spot to freshen up after a long-haul flight, you can find bathroom and complimentary shower facilities in Terminal 1, near Gate 22 Arrivals on Level 5.
How about a round of golf? Golf is an incredibly popular sport in Hong Kong and this is evident by the presence of the Sky City Nine Eagle Golf Course located on the airport site. The course is a quick ride on the shuttle bus from Terminal 2. Don’t worry if you don’t have any equipment – it all can be hired on sight.

Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Super good crew."
Pros: "Efficiency, good."
Pros: "Perfect timing"
Pros: "Cabin crew knew how to work."
Cons: "So surprisingly, the cabin was dirty and the seat comfort was below expectation."
Pros: "Handset to control screen didn’t work. Airline reimbursed me with $75 voucher for inflight duty-free shop."
Cons: "Singapore Airlines is so wildly overrated. The service is frequently poor, and the cabin environment dirty and old unless flying on their very latest planes. Even their A380s are now stale and musty. Not nice."
Cons: "Aircrew took my carry on away while I was waiting to board saying it was too large; left me without the essential items I wanted during the 19.5 hours in the air and two plane changes. Other people were allowed to keep carry ons bigger than mine so I don't understand why they did this."
Pros: "The plane was new. The in flight entertainment system was good, although I never got to experience it fully because the Flight attendant kept switching it off, as I had paid extra (an arm and a leg) for a “bulkhead seat”"
Cons: "The service was beyond awful! The Flight Attendants had a “could care less” attitude. I had special ordered a meal, and they gave me the wrong one. I did not want to make a big deal, so I just ate it. Then they did not offer any beverages when the meal came! I literally had to beg them to make me their famous “Singapore sling”. Shocking really!!. When I had my coffee, my request for cream and sugar went ignored THREE times. Finally they grudgingly gave me only cream, rendering my coffee undrinkable. .....And the list goes on. Never ever will I travel on this horrid airline again!"
Pros: "Seats are big as old plane"
Cons: "Very old plane, entertainment system therefore very old too. Service was slow, 2 hours after start till they serve dinner, another 1 hour to clear. No special boarding for staralliance gold members"
Pros: "Satisfied and feel good on Singapore airlines, definitely will consider next trip"
Pros: "Quick boarding. Great entertainment system Good staff"
Cons: "Not comfortable seats"
Pros: "Service, staff, food, and comfort! Def the better Business class seats I've had. This was the A380 and, the first legwas a 770 but that was really great also. Awesome work Singapore Airlines"
Pros: "We loved the service, quality of food, entertainment, and cleanliness of Singapore Airlines flight!"
Cons: "Economy is still tightly packed with limited leg room considering the distance traveled."
Pros: "Friendly crew I like that a lot. The diabetes food choice ecselent Thank you"
Cons: "The toilets were very dirty"
Pros: "Cabin crew was top notch - even in coach they could not be more accommodating and customer friendly. US airline flight attendants don’t even come close to this team that truly serviced the cabin for 8 hours continuously without the typical hiding in the back of the plane and chatting. Very encouraging that genuine care in the air is very much alive and well on Singapore Air! I will fly them every chance I get!"
Cons: "That my flight had to end and I know my next US airline flight won’t come close to this kind of experience! Air travel doesn’t have to be a cattle herding process with peanut treats on cross country flights - shame on the US carriers - I strongly suggest they fly Singapore Air to see what true customer service feels like!"
Cons: "SQ860 flight on 4th April morning delayed and greatly affected my today trip scheduled."

There are plenty storage space in your seat space. The entertainment system has many choices and has a lot new release movies and shows."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the ride on Boeing 777 is not as smooth as the Airbus'. The noise in the cabin is louder. The seat is comfortable but the bed is not. First, the flat bed is not transformed by a button and it needs a physical person to flip it over. The mat is thin and I can feel some hard edges while lying down. The noise from the engine transmits to the bed and it is hard to sleep even with the noise cancellation headphone."
Cons: "Stewardesses were a bit rude"
Pros: "I've always flown Singapore airlines wherever possible. Standards are unbeatable until this flight..."
Cons: "The dinner was terrible. I am a long time customer of Singapore Airlines and I know where the standard are. The food on this flight was the worst I've seen.

Pros: "food. schedule was on time"

Cons: "They reschudle my flight beaucase I have anxiety. It's my birthday today. I'm suppose to be in China celebrating me and my grandma's birthday right now. Apparently anxiety is something that Singapore airline are very concerned about me, that needs a doctor note to prove that I'm okey to fly. poor coummcation skill and power play"
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Kids' meal didn't have fruits. No cellphone charger."
Pros: "Overall treatment of boarding & crew staff was courteous, friendly & helpful. Movies selections were great but I was too tired to watch."
Cons: "Food can be improved. Couldn't eat pork or shrimps, so wished they served either vegetarian or chicken noodles instead of pork or stuff with shrimps. Fish, chicken, beef, or vegetarian options are better options."
Cons: "Headphones were not functioning properly"

Cons: "I ordered the seafood meals and they were terrible on the outbound as well as the inbound flights."
Pros: "Just as previous reviews mentioned, this is a top notch airline even when flying coach. The staff was courteous and attentive, the food was good and the flight overall was comfortable. I'd fly with Singapore again in a heartbeat."

Cons: "the number of movies is a little bit less. the category of videos is not clear."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The quality of the red wine"

Pros: "Service is good even in economy class."
Cons: "Chairs on the new A380 although more comfortable than the Boeing 777 are still very uncomfortable for sleeping in the economy class. Plane is so big that it takes a while for first and business class to load and unload. Luggage took forever to unload for the same reason."
Cons: "Food was below average"
Pros: "CX crews are professional as they are very customer oriented"
Cons: "The ground services in Melbourne airport was really bad! Chaotic arrangements for boarding and especially unpleasant staffs!"

Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The food was atrocious and this was business class. The toilet lights were so dimmed all the time you couldn't see what was going on. Last year we flew business class Cathay pacific from Hong Kong to Melbourne and loved it. This year we decided to fly from Melbourne to Dusseldorf and then from Frankfurt to Melbourne with this airline. Won't be doing that again. Why pay business class fares to be disapointed"
Pros: "Travelling with a 1 yr old, the extra leg room and space in the bassinet seats was appreciated. Service and help from staff was outstanding. Recommend for travelling with young children. Minimises the pain!"

Pros: "Quiet, warm water in bathroom sink. Movies"

Pros: "The entertainment offering is excellent and the flight schedule into Sapporo is ideal. The food was great and came out at the right times."
Cons: "Staff are not as friendly and knowledgable as other airlines I have flown in Asia."
Pros: "Cathay Pacific has the most attentive flight attendants of any airline on the planet. We had a tight connection in Hong Kong.

Pros: "Clean and comfortable"
Pros: "Food was pretty good and the staff helped with providing tea periodically."
Cons: "The chicken rice was a bit disappointing. On the way out from Bangkok to Fukuoka the food was better. I was left wandering around at the Hong Kong airport to find the gate. The transfer station at E2 was hard to find - more signs or better directions from personnel would have helped. This was in contrast to the exceptional treatment I received from CP when I was making my close connection in Hong Kong on the way from Bangkok to Fukuoka. The lady helped escort me through the airport to make sure I caught my flight and had been waiting there as I exited the plane -- that was fantastic but in sharp contrast to my experience on the return segments."
Cons: "Flight delayed in take off twice. Then diverted via Manila. Not ideal."
Pros: "I had a great time in Cathay. Selection of menu was slightly above average and the movies were updated. For the price I paid, I think I got more than I expected."

Pros: "Food and crew"
Cons: "Passenger next me kept getting up and flopping down in the seat, waking me up."
Pros: "Price. Crew was very attentive and nice."

Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "Poor selection of food; they ran out of the chicken entree! You should have more chicken entrees; have less beef entrees since a lot of people are avoiding beef!"
Pros: "There wasnt much to like about the flight except that we didnt end up dead."
Cons: "Where do you start? Boarding process made no sense so i wont even try to explain it. Just trust me. Once we got on the plane they wouldnt let me plug into the usb port while we were on the ground. Food Service was terrible. They woke me up (minutes after id fallen asleep) for both food service. First time i thought was accident. Second time i asked them not to wake me up and they said i have to get a do not disturb sticker (why wasnt i just given one before so i could make the decision to use it or not on my own?) Also the food was terrible. I dont expect much from airline food but i can say ive had acceptable meals on other airlines (emirates and lufthansa). The food was not what i expected for one of the highest rated airlines. The flight attendant had me put the seat up during food service so the lady behind me could eat. Wtf?? Never had to do that on another airline. When i was not sleeping they rarely came down the isles with water or juice trays. (I saw it once toward the end of the flight)...and trust me i didnt miss it because i was sleeping. When i did get water i had to beg for ice as well."
Pros: "Great service, very accommodating staff. Good food as far as airline food goes."
Pros: "The flights were on time and there was no problem at all with my luggage."
Cons: "there was no vegetarian food booked for me (as usual) even though i mentioned it while booking also sent an email 3 days before the flight to vayama agency, asking to confirm vegetarian meal, luggage allowance and connection i hong kong.. vayama replied few days after plane took off from melbourne. i also didnt have a chance to have a window seat, that was my preference and couldnt sleep during all flights at all. i wouldnt choose cathay pacific again. their crew was not helpful at all."
Cons: "We didn't get to fly on Cathay, our flight was delayed and thank god WE asked if that would effect our connecting flight in Hong Kong because we would have missed it had WE not asked (the agent should have checked that for us). We had to fly on Thai airways vs. Cathay. We were on our honeymoon trip, we had to fly a different airline, we got stuck in middle seats and couldn't sit together. Not exactly how you like to spend a honeymoon trip, removed from your spouse and sitting with strangers stuck in the middle which wasn't what we booked. Extremely disappointing!"
Pros: "It was only 3 seats across and lots of new movies (current) movies"
Cons: "OMG! There is zero leg room. The seats are hard. And the crying babies with parents who should have never reproduced made this flight help. We tried to get help from crew but they told the parents to quiet kid and t g end walked away"
Pros: "seats were roomier than usual. Very comfortable"
Pros: "Good leg space, very comfortable Good service & food Email updates from Cathay very happy overall. Arrival & departure on time."
Cons: "Poor service ! Flight attendant used restroom for 30mins while there are 4 people waiting outside. Came out without saying anything and looked angry. The worst food ! Horrible !"
Cons: "For an airline that has good reputation, they had pretty old planes. My entertainment system was not working properly. Seats were dirty. I had a window seat and the window had a food stain on it. Crew kept serving the person next to me alcohol even though he was drunk. I found that very unprofessional with no regards to passengers sitting next to him. Drunk passenger misbehaved with me and passenger still kept serving him alcohol."

Pros: "Cathay Pacific always seems to have top cabin personnel. They are very attentive and really seem to try to meet your needs, more so than the crews of other airlines. Flying is not a particularly fun experience, but Cathay does its best. It's a bit hit and miss with the food, but this time my special request meals (Asian vegetarian) were pretty good."
Cons: "These 777's have really crappy legroom. A330's are much more comfortable (well, Airbus in general)."
Cons: "They had no clue .. About meal .. What is disappointing was no body had a way to make me feel that they cared or they have an alternate plan"

Cons: "Direct flight to Melbourne."
Pros: "Crew very good"
Cons: "Aircraft are very dated"
Pros: "The crew for Qantas is normally pretty damn good. This trip was no exception."
Cons: "The plane had a mechanical issue. The plane had sat on the ground for over 12 hours according to flightaware. They didn’t try to work on the mechanics issue till about an hour or two before boarding. This delay caused a lot of issues for so many passengers trying to make connecting flights."

Pros: "I’ll lile it all"
Cons: "My foot rest didn’t extend all the way up, button was broken"

Cons: "Food was awful."
Pros: "Cabin crew were helpful and updated us on connections in Melbourne (although they wouldn't have needed to do this if the flight hadn't have left late)."
Cons: "Flight was late and this was significant as I had a tight connection in Melbourne. There did not seem to be a good reason it was late as the aircraft was already at Launceston.

Pros: "Good crew service"
Cons: "Food was tasteless just warm and food servied don't reflect the menu."

Pros: "Fantastic service"
Cons: "Boarding gate was like queuing for a sporting event"
Cons: "The delay was just disappointing"
Pros: "The service was very friendly, proactive and helpful. Got to fly in an A380 and I got a whole row to myself. the cabin crew were extremely attentive."

Cons: "No info ahead of time about checking in. Once we got to the airport, I was told that I should have known better & checked in 24 hours prior. initially, the agent said that all seats are appropriated randomly. At the gate, I'm told different. I had to fight tooth & nail to get a seat next to my wife (who often gets airsick). It didn't feel good to have to argue & make a scene to accomplish this."
Pros: "The service was great. Flight got delayed a day, but everyone was well taken care of in spite of the situation. During the flight the staff was attentive and courteous. I'd definitely fly with Qantas again."
Cons: "The fact that the flight was delayed, but that was to no fault of the staff. I'd definitely let that slide."

Pros: "Nothing to be honest.."
Cons: "food was pathetic, served late, i have always found the Qantas crew to be rude. No change to that. Somethings dont change. this is one of them. I first flew w Qantas in 2005 in business class, and since then i have downgraded. But the attitude hasn't changed. It's as if we are doing service by choosing Qantas...."

Cons: "The entertainment on board was really disappointing"

Pros: "Arriving back in Australia"
Cons: "Being 2 hours late because there was a passenger on board sick they should never of been allowed to board the plane. This was very badly managed by the staff on the ground staff. Very poor leg room the rude passenger in the seats in front of us reclined right from take off to landing wa very hard to get out of our seat to stretch or go to the bathroom"
Pros: "Emma on board staff was friendly and professional"

Pros: "Fast self checkin"
Cons: "Entertainment screen doesn't work. Plane is freezing cold. Crew was very rude and ignores my requests. Never come when ask for service and completely ignores my first request of an extra blanket if possible. Never comeback to let me know if they have one or not and I was freezing to sick. I have to walk to the back of the plane to find someone to bring me a blanket. Yet he tries to cast me off by lying that he could not find one. When he realize that I really need one he said I can take one from empty seat if I can find any. But after me finding a blanket of another color on one of the empty seat he take it away rudely saying that it is "not for you". Come on I wouldn't take it if no one cares about me freezing and he finally bring me a blanket. And the crew was very unfriendly to me the entire time. When I tried to lay down a little, somehow it surprised the passenger who is behind me, the crew make such a scene that ask me outloud "be careful when moving your seat" well I did. Basically they make no efford to care about anything about me but are super nice to the people who's is behind me who are white and elder. Such obviously discrimination that I cannot tolerant. I have been having frequent international travel for the past 7 years and this is the first time I have such unpleasant experience. I do not recommend this company to anyone. be warned."

Pros: "They gave us a meal on a 2 and a half hour flight! Amazing service."
Cons: "It was a bit tight. Not much legroom."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Literally every time I fly PAL there is some issue with delay. After boarding we stat on the plan for over an hour before we took off waiting for some other passengers. Also I was at the airport early and wanted to get on earlier flight they wanted to charge me $300 to get on a flight with many extra empty seats."

Cons: "No hassles at all. Generally a smooth flight to HongKong."
Pros: "It was like most other flights ie it was fine. Above average overall."
Cons: "A big negative was the transit lounge in Manila. Between 2 Philippine Airline flights we had an 8 hour layover in the Manila transit lounge. Not impressed at all. There were about 4/5 staff but they sat outside the lounge & did nothing to control the passengers & keep them quiet /organised. The lounge was very crowded, very noisy & there was only water to drink & nothing to eat. For 8 hours! The very least should be to supply more seating & a facility where passengers can order coffee/tea & snacks. Also there was only 1 ladies toilet, so always occupied. The lounge Definately needs an urgent upgrade in facilities then I would consider flying Phillipine Aiines again."
Pros: "Both the flights were high quality and easy."
Cons: "The 13 hour layover in Manila was terrible. Philippine airlines has one room with very few good places to sleep. That night of sleep was really uncomfortable and staying in one room for so long drove us crazy."
Pros: "Crew was fine food mediocre"
Cons: "Leg room is real tight. Hardly any space to move. Compared to other airlines the A320-200 Philippine Airlines aircraft has been packed with way too many seats. Will not fly them again."

SING to MNL - status update from PAL indicated our flight was changed from 10:30 to 11:30 therefore my connecting flight to HNL as well as arrival time has also changed. VERY POOR PAL AIRPORT FACILITY FOR HAVJNG ONLY ONE WORKING RESTROOM FOR THE WHOLE TERMINAL! With flights getting delayed people are anxious and frustrated. There are no place to relaxed and calm down. Staff are everywhere standing and glaring so as the other passenger. Worst airport ever!"

Pros: "Attentive flight attendants ."
Cons: "All acceptable"
Cons: "This is the second time - once on the way to Kuala Lumpur and on the way back that we boarded late and thus missed my connecting flight. Sadly Cathay and Malaysia air (which was the airline Cathay used for the return leg of this trip refused to help and put me on an earlier flight forcing me to stay an extra 6 hrs at the airport while being sick."
Cons: "Delayed again. 5 flights of people crammed in gate area 81 - 84. Ridiculous"

Cons: "distance between rows seems shorter than other airlines such as Emirates"
Pros: "Easy and efficient boarding"
Cons: "Too hot onboard"
Cons: "Worst food ever."
Cons: "Malaysian is known the world over for its great food. It's a pity Malaysia Airlines MH=Malaysian Hospitality doesn't extend to serving simple, good food. The pastry was nothing but a lump of dough with tasteless fillings, and the main meal was atrocious. Everything else was mediocre, except the crew, who were friendly and warm as always,"
Cons: "The crew at the check in counter were generally helpful and courteous, however the staff on the flight we're often short or generally rude; thus continuing the airlines reputation for poor service. The food wasn't great either, but we knew to expect this and brought food purchased from Sydney airport (which was a saving grace)!"
Pros: "Service and integtity"
Pros: "Overall all was good, except the flight been late."
Cons: "The flight was 40 mins late and because of that, I missed my connection from Hong Kong to San Francisco. Your company then offered me and my friend a hotel stay and transportation to and from the hotel., which was good. I appreciated your company taking care of us. However, it is really bothersome to miss an international connection to go home after a long trip."
Pros: "The flights were on time :)."
Pros: "Better overall service - boarding, no delays, comfortable cabins, pleasant crew."
Cons: "the windows were a bit smudged from previous passengers"
Cons: "We had a 4.5 hour delay due to weather conditions at Heathrow. Although the airline could not avoid this. I feel being kept on the plane for the duration before a 12 hour flight and a further 4 hour connection, was too much."
Pros: "Not enough elbow space between fat passengers"
Cons: "There wasn't a food preference option when booking through kayak."
Cons: "Why did the entertainment get shut off more than 30 minutes before landing?"
Pros: "We arrived at the counter 1:50 before scheduled departure. The queue took 55 minutes for us to reach the counter. We were told then we should have rushed the counter to clear the 1 hour hurdle. There was no approach by staff to warn the waiting queue to do this. We were given boarding passes and told to try our luck taking the luggage through security and try gate baggage check. We made the plane 20 minutes before scheduled departure"
Cons: "Very old plane equipment Short seat pitch limits economy class passenger comfort"
Cons: "Canceled flights both directions. Poor airport. Long runway times. When told I was notified about the canceled flights, I was issued absolutely no apologies."

Pros: "Good on the plane and in the business class lounge was excellent"
Pros: "Malaysian airlines airport crew at least tried to get us back to Singapore."

Pros: "I like their timely service and cleanliness."
Pros: "Service from the crews"
Pros: "Boarding was easy with less passengers."
Cons: "The magazine in my seat pocket was dirty. The seat cushion seemed not clean. There was a greasy spot not cleaned."
Cons: "On both flights, i did not get the seats i had specifically booked..."
Pros: "I appreciated the free baggage allowance and the staff were nice, but otherwise they were a huge headache to fly."
Cons: "They changed the times on BOTH of our flights by HOURS, which resulted in me having to buy a ticket with another airline to ensure we wouldn't miss our connecting international flight. Horribly unreliable, will never fly them again. Honestly airAsia was a better experience than with Malaysia Air"
Pros: "Good entertainment system."
Cons: "Food was only one choice - fish (not tasty)."
Pros: "I actually thought the seats were pretty comfy. And they have in flight entertainment, no need to download an app or anything."
Cons: "Wish I had known there would be a meal on the short flight. I usually request a vegetarian meal so I couldn't do it this time."
Pros: "Whilst I realise this is an Asian airline the warm roll was very doughy & tasteless & the breakfast wasn't at all good."

Cons: "Foods was not good for my standard. Below average."
Pros: "On time departure system works"
Cons: "Seats feel super cramped"
Pros: "Cabin crew friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Red snapper was over cooked and rubbery. MH used to have great food. What happened??? IFE system was poor although flight was only over an hour in length - not a major issue."
Cons: "Fight was delayed half an hour due to waiting for a few connecting flight passengers. This is ridiculous as the airline is making the gain at the expense of other passengers' priceless time."
Pros: "The equipment and level of service on this MAS flight was excellent. Food was delicious. Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Though it wasn't part of the flight, the business class lounge at KUL is just a step below the excellent facilities at airports like HKG. Just a step though, mostly in the shower area. Food options were great though. And take advantage of the Massage Spa within the lounge."
Pros: "Flights seat is comfortable"
Cons: "Delay and boarding at very last minute."
