Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all regular services and hours may be subject to change. Thus, if the idea is to spend the night in the public area, consider a plan B in case the stay inside the airport is only allowed for those who are close to boarding.
Spending the night at the airport
Hong Kong airport is very large and navigating it can be confusing, so it is best to have comfortable footwear. It is generally very busy even at night, so have earplugs or headphones.
Where to rest: Although in the public area there are not many possibilities, once you get through the security control you can find several benches with no armrests (if you look hard enough). Next to gates 23 and 26 there are reclinable lounge chairs. Another option is to enter one of the VIP lounges, some of which are open 24 hours a day. In addition, there is a hotel connected to Terminal 1.
Baggage: A left luggage service is available, but it closes at night.
Eating and drinking: Options open throughout the night inside both terminals.
Restrooms: Besides the VIP lounges, you will find showers in the west hall of level 7.
Wi-Fi: Free and unlimited.
Other services available around the clock: ATMs, convenience stores, nursing rooms, prayer rooms, children's play areas.
The Regal Airport Hotel is connected to Terminal 1 through a covered bridge. Other accommodations in the surroundings provide free shuttles to and from the airport.
