Breastfeeding Room Onboard

Our service


The number of breastfeeding mothers in Hong Kong is on the rise nowadays as a result of the acquaintance with breastfeeding benefits. In order to provide a comfortable and private space for breastfeeding mothers and implant the breastfeeding-friendly concept in Hong Kong community, the first-ever onboard breastfeeding room amidst Hong Kong public transport was set up in triple-deck vessels "Xin Guang" in June 2016, and the initiative had been extended and successfully completed on the other three triple-deck vessels among the fleet which were “Xin Chao”, “Xin Fei” and “Xin Guo” in early 2017.

Upon completion of setting up breastfeeding room on the four triple-deck vessels, First Ferry is actively engaging the pro-breastfeeding organisations and groups in reviewing the feasibility of setting up priority seats for breastfeeding mothers on our fast ferries to strengthen the efforts in promoting breastfeeding amidst our fleet.

As part of its continued support for the breast-feeding campaign, First Ferry is devoted to taking part in the " Say Yes to Breastfeeding Support for Breastfeeding" campaign initiated by The Hong Kong Committee for UNICEF, in association with the Food and Health Bureau and the Department of Health, and became the first Hong Kong public transport to participate in the campaign in late 2016. We hope to cooperate with various organizations in efforts to turn Hong Kong become breastfeeding friendly city.

Use of breastfeeding room: 

1. Passengers regardless of the class the passengers sit in are welcome to use the breastfeeding room in ordinary ferry by informing the staff at “Customer and Octopus Services Centre” at piers before boarding, or approaching our crewmember during the journey.
