Connected to the existing terminal building with a People Mover system, SkyPlaza has become a fusion point for multi-modal transportation centre linking Hong Kong with the Mainland. With a gross floor area of 140,000 square metres, SkyPlaza houses various passenger facilities as well as a variety of entertainment, retail and catering amenities.
