    Central to HKIA - Weekday evening

    How is the traffic situation from Sheung Wan / Central to HKIA on a weekday evening?

    For various reasons I intend to take a taxi from home to HKIA, leaving at around 6 - 6.30pm with a flight at 8.30pm. No checked baggage and will do online check-in.

    Is that feasible or traffic will cause a problem.

    Airport Express is 23 minutes from Hong Kong Station (Central) to HKIA.

    As stated in the OP for various reasons I am going to take a taxi from home. HK Express IS NOT GOING TO WORK FOR ME for this instance. I'm not interested in public transport options, just want to know if taxi is a feasible option timing wise for that time frame.

    It is doable, assuming traffic getting into the Western Harbour Tunnel is not too bad, once you are onto Route 3, then It should be fine.

    Where are you actually getting the taxi from in Central?

    Example: Exchange Square/IFC is quite different from Cheung Kong/HSBC for peak hour traffic.

    That's about a 15 - 20 min walk. And then roughly 30 mins on the train, so 45 mins roughly (taking into account waiting time).

    I take E11 quite frequently from town to TungChung. It's always less than an hour.

    so taxi is fine.

    However, it takes a loooong time to reach HK express boarding gate, which is a journey in itself, starting from T2, so I would leave at 6pm
