Television commercials for the MTR Airport Express

The Airport Express line commenced operations in July 1998, linking the brand new Hong Kong International Airport airport at Chek Lap Kok to Kowloon and Hong Kong Island.

The MTR advertising campaigns emphasised how easy it was to access the new airport by rail – tugboats pulling the new airport closer to Hong Kong Island.

And an Airport Express train running directly to planes.

Another campaign featured Hong Kong cantopop star 黎明 (Leon Lai).

While this final advert for souvenir MTR model trains had kids working behind the scenes.

    Hi there, I do notice the adverts do show a AVOD system on the trains. I believe these are covered up now. What did they use to show? And was it changeable? I feel like it could have been used in present day for repeating ads instead if still in service.
