The in-town airport check-in services at Hong Kong Station will resume on July 5, according to a report from Bloomberg. This will allow travellers departing the SAR to drop their check-in luggage off at the downtown MTR station on the day of their flight and collect it at their final destination.

The counters at Hong Kong and Kowloon MTR stations – which also have Airport Express services – have been closed since April 2020 due to Covid-19 restrictions. There is no word yet on when check-in services will resume at Kowloon.

Last month, the Airport Express resumed its weekday peak-hour services to Hong Kong International Airport and AsiaWorld Expo. Trains now run 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.

Hong Kong’s airport has also seen an uptick in passenger traffic, with visitor numbers for 2023 crossing the 13-million mark in May, which is 23 times more traffic than the airport handled in 2022.
