How early can you check in with Cathay Pacific/Cathay Dragon "physically" at HK airport and also check in baggage? (I know you can check in online early and also at in town check-in, thats not what I'm after) 


I am doing MELB - HKG, overnight in HKG, then HKG to PVG lunch time next day. Wondering if I could pick up my baggage in HKG on arrival, and check in + baggage drop straight away that evening before leaving HKIA, next day I would just turn up at the airport with hand carry and boarding pass in hand.

I'm not sure about direct check-in time limits, but since you're arriving on another service, why not just check it through?

Bags for connecting flights within 24 hours are permitted to be checked through, even if the connection is overnight.

In the past I have used HKIA''s baggage services to store my bags whilst on a layover.


If you can't check in, this maybe something to consider?

If I can't check in, then happy to use in town check in first thing the following morning. I can't check it straight through because its a different airline.

I have a similar question. I am arriving on a HK airlines flight at around 5 or 6 pm and want to check in early for a Cathay pacific flight departing Hong Kong at 11.55pm the same day. Besides the InTown check in are there any other options to check in early so I can access the Lounges for longer.
