The Hong Kong International Airport, also known as Chek Lap Kok, is the main port for visitors to Hong Kong by air, and one of the busiest airports in the world. It is served by major international airlines that provide about 4,900 scheduled passenger flights weekly from Hong Kong to 139 cities worldwide.
Flights between Hong Kong and other major Asian cities are also frequent: up to 40 flights per day connecting Hong Kong with Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Taipei, Tokyo, Shanghai, Manila, Seul, Bangkok and Beijing. Other routes may be cheaper, however.
For destinations within China, it is often cheaper to fly from Shenzhen than from Hong Kong, as flights from the mainland to Hong Kong are considered to be international flights and therefore priced as such. For elsewhere in Asia, consider Macao. The discount airlines land there because it has lower fees than Hong Kong.
Cathey Pacific and its subsidiary airline Dragonair are Hong Kong's main carriers, with Hong Kong Express some competition.
There are many direct flights to Hong Kong from every continent in the world. Most major cities in Oceania, Europe and North America are all served with at least one daily flight.
