To serve travelers planning to cross the newly opened Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge to catch flights at Hong Kong Airport, a new check-in facility has been opened at the boundary crossing facilities.
At the arrivals hall of the Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities (HKBCF), travelers with booked flights on Cathay Pacific/Cathay Dragon, Hong Kong Airlines, and HK Express flights could check-in before their flights, tag their bags, and get their boarding passes. Travelers can proceed to Hong Kong Airport or go to other places within the city. Travelers who are not flying with the local Hong Kong-based carriers or prefer to check-in at the airport, dedicated services are available to head to the airport directly.
The services will be expanded with a new Intermodal Transfer Terminal scheduled to open in 2022. The new transfer terminal enable travelers in Macau and the Chinese Mainland to go through border crossing processes before proceeding to the airport for boarding, bypassing the (HKBCF). The new facilities will also have border processing services for travelers arriving at Hong Kong Airport heading to Macau and Zhuhai.
“With these check-in services at the HZMB’s three boundary crossing facilities, passengers can enjoy a hassle-free journey when travelling to various destinations around the world via HKIA,” said Steven Yiu, the Airport Authority of Hong Kong’s deputy director of service delivery.
“Leveraging HKIA’s advantageous geographical location as a gateway to the Mainland, we will continue to strengthen our multi-modal transportation services, striving to offer HKIA’s extensive connectivity to passengers travelling to and from cities throughout the Pearl River Delta region and beyond.”
At a cost of around USD $20 Billion, the newly opened Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge is the longest sea bridge spanning 55 kilometers (34 miles) connecting mainland China to Hong Kong and Macau via the city of Zhuhai. The new bridge makes a commute between the three cities to within an hour of each other.
