Mandarin Hong Kong Ultimate Concierge

Hong Kong, 1 August, 2003—Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong is the first hotel in the territory to introduce a luxury VIP concierge service that escorts guests directly from the airport gate into a waiting Mandarin Oriental car.

The Airport Concierge service operated by Worldwide Flight Services, allows Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong to greet guests directly from their flight.
