Cathay Pacific will resume its in-town check-in services at Hong Kong Station on July 5. However, check-in counters at the Kowloon MTR station and those for other airlines that provided these services before the Covid-19 pandemic remain closed.
In addition, the Cathay counters at Hong Kong Station will not provide overnight services as they will only operate from 6am-3pm.
Last week, it was reported that passengers could avail the in-town check-in services – by which they can drop off their luggage anytime between 24 hours and 90 minutes before their departure from Hong Kong International Airport – on July 5.
The counters at the Hong Kong and Kowloon MTR stations – which also have Airport Express services – were closed in April 2020 due to Covid-19 restrictions.
The Airport Express takes passengers from downtown Hong Kong to the city’s airport in Chek Lap Kok in 24 minutes. It also makes stops at the Kowloon and Tsing Yi MTR stations, the latter of which does not have check-in counters.
The Airport Express currently runs at 10-minute intervals from 8am to 9.30am and from 4.30pm to 7pm on weekdays, and at 15-minute intervals during the rest of the day. However, it will run at 10-minute intervals from July 5 onwards.
