Cityflyer is an airport coach service provided by Citybus (Hong Kong). The service was started during the opening of the Hong Kong International Airport in 1998.

Fleet[edit]

The size of the fleet is approximately 90 buses.

Routes[edit]

Cityflyer operates Airport Routes A10, A11, A12, A20 (Effective from 20/3/2017), A21, A22, A29, A29P, NA21 and NA29. The Cityflyer service is rival to the Long Win Bus service provided by Kowloon Motor Bus.

On 28 November 2005, Transport Department (TD) of Hong Kong invited tenders for new airport route plying between Hong Kong Southern District and Airport via Mount Davis Road and Kennedy Town, requiring the bus deployed must be shorter than 11 metres due to road restrictions of Mount Davis Road.[1] On 23 January 2006, TD announced that Citybus had won the tender, with the route number A10, which the fare was set as HK$48, overriding A12 as the most expensive local bus route in the whole Hong Kong. This new route has entered service on 26 March 2006. 10 MAN NL262/R single deckers (fleet number 1560 - 1569) were upgraded to Cityflyer standard, including luggage racks and 33 seats which are as same as the double deckers, for use on the new route. This is the only Cityflyer route operated dominantly by single deckers.[2][3]
