Official Airport Viewing Location


Access and Transport
This is the official plane spotting facility mentioned on the Hong Kong International Airport's website. It is located in Terminal 2 and is accessed via the Aviation Discovery Centre on level 6 (which also includes a 4D cinema and various displays about aviation). You need to buy an entry ticket from the cinema counter and then take the lift up to the roof. Strictly speaking, no food and drink is allowed, so don’t enter with bags of food visible! There are no toilet facilities on the viewing deck but you can go out for a short while and re-enter without having to pay again. The deck is open from about 10:30am to 10pm.
