Cathay Pacific is the only airline offering direct flights from Manchester to Hong Kong. Airlines providing flights with just one stop include Emirates, Qatar, Etihad and Lufthansa.

There are three terminals at Manchester Airport. Lufthansa, Etihad and Emirates flights leave from Terminal 1. Cathay Pacific and Qatar flights leave from Terminal 2. Passengers on long haul flights are advised to check-in at least three hours before their scheduled flight departure time.
Terminal 1 is the biggest of the terminals at Manchester Airport. It’s home to a duty free store, a currency exchange and a range of high street shops. Food and drink outlets include Giraffe, Starbucks and Café Balzar. Terminal 2 is a little smaller but still has all of the facilities you’ll need before your flight. There’s WHSmith, Boots, Dixons Travel and Travelex currency exchange. You can also get a bite to eat at venues including Burger King, Frankie & Benny’s and The Observatory Bar.
Both terminals provide a premium lounge available for an entrance fee. Wi-Fi is available throughout the airport free of charge for up to one hour. You can then pay £5.00 per hour or £10.00 per day for further usage.
Hong Kong International Airport
Hong Kong International Airport (also known as Chek Lap Kok Airport) is located 35 kilometres from Hong Kong city centre. There are two terminals at the airport, with the majority of international flights arriving to Terminal 1.
The Terminal 1 arrivals hall is split into two sections, A and B. In the arrivals halls you’ll find a Visitor Information Centre and a good selection of food outlets and shops. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the airport.
There are various options for getting from Hong Kong Airport into Hong Kong city centre. The Airport Express train is one of the quickest with a journey time of 24 minutes. Trains depart approximately every 10 minutes between 5.50 and 00.50 and a ticket costs HK$100.00.
Public buses offer a cheaper way to travel and a number of routes depart from outside the airport terminal. Alternatively, you can take a taxi into the city centre. The airport’s taxi rank is located outside the arrivals hall and is accessed by the left hand ramp. Taxis in Hong Kong are colour coded according to their area of operation. Red taxis serve all destinations throughout Hong Kong, green taxis serve the New Territories and blue taxis serve Lantau. If you’re travelling to central Hong Kong, you’ll need a red taxi and can expect to pay around HK$295.00.
British nationals travelling to Hong Kong do not need a visa. All you’ll need is a passport valid for the duration of your stay. You will, however, need a visa if you are planning any onward travel into China.
What to Expect in Hong Kong
Hong Kong has a subtropical climate with four distinct seasons. Throughout June, July, August and September temperatures are high, it’s very humid and there’s a fair bit of rain. Winters are dry and still fairly warm, with daytime temperatures of around 18°c.
Prices in Hong Kong are reasonable and you can expect to pay a little less than in Manchester for dining out, public transport and taxi travel. A mid-range three course meal for two costs around HK$300.00 (£26.50), a bottle of beer costs HK$35.00 (£3.00) and a one way journey on public transport costs just HK$10.00 (£0.90). If, however, you’re self-catering, you’ll find prices in supermarkets on the expensive side.
Hong Kong is eight hours ahead of the UK.
