Hong Kong International Airport is the only civil airport operating in Hong Kong now. Located on the artificial island of Chek Lap Kok, north to Lautau Island of the New Territories, it is also called Chek Lap Kok International Airport (CLK).

It is the fourth busiest international passenger airport in the world and has the busiest international cargo facilities. There are 90 airlines operating from the airport and at any time, some 750 aircraft are on their move daily. HKIA links Hong Kong with around 150 destinations round the world, including 40 cities in Mainland China. Since its operation from July 1998, the International Airport has earned the world's best airport recognition for more than 25 times by 10 different entities. It boasts two terminals, with an area of 71 square meters. Whilst Terminal 1 was put into use from the start, Terminal 2 was only added in Feb.2007. Located opposite to each other, the two terminals are within walking distance.

Hong Kong International Airport is the southern gateway to Mainland China. Some 320 cross-boundary shuttle buses connect it with 90 Pearl River Delta (PRD) cities and towns. Passengers can use cross-boundary limousine to get to their PRD destinations directly. What's more, with the SkyPier cross-boundary ferry services, passengers from Pearl River Delta cities going overseas will have a comfortable trip as they do not have to go through the usual immigration and customs formalities in Hong Kong . At present, speedy cross-boundary arrangements are available at eight Pearl River Delta ports: Shekou and Fuyong ports of Shenzhen , Nansha port of Guangzhou , Humen port of Dongguan, and ports in Zhongshan, Zhuhai and Macau .

At Shekou, Macau , Fuyong and Humen ports, passengers can even pre-check-in their baggages and obtain their boarding passes. A new permanent SkyPier facility is currently under construction.
