Airport Express early check-in restrictions

Many people utilize the MTR Airport Express in-town prior-day check-in feature. However, one of the drawbacks is that while this is touted as good for all passengers, it’s a matter of fact that not every airline allows check-in the day prior. (I think prior-day check-in is the main selling point of the Airport Express…without it there are many other viable options to get to the airport as I mentioned previously.)

Airlines which allow day prior check-in:

  • Air India
  • Air New Zealand
  • Cathay Pacific
  • China Airlines
  • Dragonair
  • EVA Air
  • Hong Kong Airlines
  • Mandarin Airlines
  • Qantas Airways
  • Singapore Airlines
  • South African Airways
  • Thai Airways

As you can see these ares only a small number of airlines which fly to HKG, and even amongst these airlines there are some restrictions. Please be aware next time you want to do prior-day check-in and doublecheck the airline list so you don’t arrive at the Airport Express station disappointed.
