Transit & Transfer


1) Transit Service

The Airport Transit Desk is located at Area E1 and M1 on the Arrival Level. Please approach the transfer desk at least 40 minutes before the departure time for check in procedure.


2) Through Check-In Service

As a courtesy, Hong Kong Airlines will through-check you and your bags to your final destination if you are travelling on same ticket with our interline partner or separate tickets involving connections operated by Hong Kong Airlines.

According to IATA’s regulation, it is not necessary for airlines to provide baggage through check-in service to a passenger’s final destination when he/she is holding separate tickets. If there are 2 separate tickets, then there are 2 separate contracts of carriage. There are airlines announced that they will not provide baggage through check-in service for separate tickets. Hong Kong Airlines will tag your baggage to the destination of the Hong Kong Airlines ticket(s) ONLY. When you arrive at the airport, please claim your baggage and go to next carrier’s check-in counter for recheck-in. Thank you for your understanding.

For passengers who travel with other airlines and hold separate tickets (one is by piece concept and the other is by weight concept), the baggage allowance as ticket shown should be applied separately.
