Hong Kong Airport – transit from North Satellite Concourse to Finnair flight in Terminal 1 – HKG
We are at Hong Kong International Airport (HKG), the main airport of Hong Kong located on the island of Chek Lap Kok. This new airport is also called Chek Lap Kok Airport, to distinguish it from the old Hong Kong Airport called Kai Tak Airport. We have just arrived on a Bangkok Airways flight from Koh Samui (USM), Thailand and are in transit on our way to our Finnair flight to Helsinki (HEL), Finland. We have landed at Hong Kong Airports North Satellite Concourse and the footage shows our short bus drive and walk from North Satellite Concourse (International arrivals and departures) to Terminal 1 (international departures).
The footage shows our disembarkation from our Bangkok Airways flight and then follows our transit walk from Hong Kong Airports (HKG) North Satellite Concourse to Terminal 1. The transit walk from North Satellite Concourse is very short and passengers with a connection flight are quickly ushered onto a terminal shuttle bus which quickly transports you to Terminal 1. Once you arrive at Terminal 1 you once again have to pass security control (these areas are not included in the footage as filming is not allowed). Transit passengers passing the security check should be aware that any liquids such as water, soft drinks etc. (even purchased at the previous airport after security control) over the allowed limit have to be handed over to security (the rules are the same as if this is the first time you are passing through airport security for a flight). Once inside Terminal 1 at Hong Kong International Airport you arrive in a huge long terminal hall full of tax free shops and restaurants in the one side and then the departure gates with long transport escalators on the other side (there are a few tax free shops at the gate departure hall, but most of the tax free shops and restaurants are positioned at the start of the terminal). The walk to the gates is easy and their locations are logical so it is difficult to get lost when walking to your flights departure gate. As mentioned the walk to the departure gates at Hong Kong Airports Terminal 1 is not far, but that being said people with walking disabilities should organise assistance for themselves. One could see that there where plenty of passenger assistance vehicles driving around the terminal to the various gates. Passengers who want to have a meal or just a snack before their flight will find that there is a huge selection of local and international restaurant chains on the first floor looking out over the departure gates (called the Food Court). Hong Kong Airport has actually in 2014 won the Skytrax Award for “Worlds Best Airport Dining”. This footage includes a walk through the airports restaurant area on the first floor of Terminal 1. Our Finnair flight, an Airbus A340, was located at Gate 32 at the airport. The Flight departed on time and we where boarded according to our seat groups (very convenient making boarding of the aircraft very efficient). The video footage shows the walk from Gate 32 down the Jet bridge (also called gangway, jetway, airbridge, aerobridge, passenger walkway or portal) and into the passenger cabin of our Finnair A340 aircraft.
Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) or Chek Lap Kok Airport (赤鱲角機場) was in 2014 voted by Skytrax as the fourth best airport in the world. Wiki writes about Skytrax, “Skytrax is a United Kingdom-based consultancy, which runs an airline and airport review and ranking site. It conducts research for commercial airlines…”. Other 2014 Skytrax Awards for Hong Kong Airport include: Third place in “World´s Best Airport Shopping” category, Seventh place for “World´s Best Airport Immigration” category, fifth place for “World´s Best Transit Airport” category, fifth place for “World´s Cleanest Airports” category, Fifth place for “World´s Best Airport for Leisure Amenities” category, and a first place for “World´s Best Airport for Baggage Delivery”! By region “Best Airports in Asia” Hong Kong International Airport gets a Third place. First place goes to Singapore´s beautiful and efficient Changi Airport (SIN) and second place goes to South Korea's Incheon International Airport (ICN).
Wiki writes about Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) or Chek Lap Kok Airport (赤鱲角機場), “Hong Kong International Airport is the main airport in Hong Kong. It is located on the island of Chek Lap Kok, which largely comprises land reclaimed for the construction of the airport itself…”
