Hong Kong International Airport is Hong Kong’s main airport, built on reclaimed land on the island of Chek Lap Kok. The airport is also referred to as Chek Lap Kok International Airport or Chek Lap Kok Airport, to distinguish it from its predecessor, the former Kai Tak Airport.

Having been in commercial operation since 1998, Hong Kong International Airport is an important regional trans-shipment centre, passenger hub and gateway for destinations in China (with 45 destinations) and the rest of Asia. The airport is the world’s busiest cargo gateway and one of the world’s busiest passenger airports.

Central is an MTR station located in the Central area of Hong Kong Island. The station is the southern terminus of the Tsuen Wan line, a stop on the Island line. Central connects to Hong Kong station, which serves the Tung Chung line and the Airport Express.

Jordan is an area in Hong Kong, located on Kowloon Peninsula. It is named after a road of the same name in the district. The area is bordered by King’s Park to the east, Tsim Sha Tsui to the south, Ferry Point to the west, and Yau Ma Tei to the north. Administratively, it is part of Yau Tsim Mong District.

Jordan is located in the central part of the Yau Tsim Mong District. The western portion is officially known as Kwun Chung, especially before the MTR metro system went into service in 1979.

Like most of southern Kowloon, Jordan is entirely developed and urbanised other than a few small parks. Motor and pedestrian traffic throughout most of the day is very dense.
