Overview of Location 4


Location 4

Outside Aircraft Maintenance Area


Access and Transport
MTR to Tung Chung, then take the S52 bus to the Aircraft Maintenance Area.  Please note that you must take the S52 which says ‘Aircraft Maintenance Area’ on the front and not anything else, otherwise you will end up at the wrong place.  The correct S52 will go all the way to the HAECO aircraft hangers and this is where you should get off (it’s the terminus, so the bus will stop there for a couple of minutes before returning). Spot 4 is then only about a 1 minute walk away;


if you are in the terminal or if you have taken the Airport Express there, you need to take a bus to Tung Chung first as there is no direct bus from the terminal to spot 4.  Take the S1 to Tung Chung.  Then change to the S52.  The instructions are then the same as above
