Transportation and parking
The Airport Express bus service links the airport directly to the central business district. A fleet of buses takes travellers from most parts of the city to the airport, and the service is incredibly efficient, regular and quick.
Taxis and coaches are available outside the main terminal entrances, and a limousine service is also available. Car parking is available in three separate areas, although spaces fill up very quickly and availability in the long-term parking areas is limited.
Arriving at Hong Kong International Airport
Flights from Hong Kong with Qatar Airways check in at Terminal 1, Aisle E.

The two terminals are linked by a central access way and covered walkways at either end. If you are boarding your flight at gates 501-510, you can take a free shuttle bus from Terminal 1 to the North Satellite Concourse.
