Hong Kong International

Use our In Town check in service before you board the Airport Express Train to beat the queues at the airport.

When to arrive for your flight

We recommend you get to the airport with plenty of time to spare – it’s a good way to avoid last-minute stress!  As a rule of thumb:

- Virgin Atlantic flights: arrive at the airport at least two hours before your flight is due to leave.
- Partner airline flights: we recommend you check in three hours before your scheduled departure.
