China Eastern checked luggage automatic transfer?

Hello, this might be a stupid question but I'm flying china eastern from YVR to HKG and have a 6 hr layover in shanghai airport PVG.

I will be going outside of the airport for abit, do I have to pick up my luggage at PVG or does the luggage automatically go to my destination which is HKG? So that I can just ignore luggage pickup area and go out of airport?

Since there is no change of airline, your bag will probably be checked straight through. However I had to pick mine up and recheck it in a similar situation on one trip. (But the transfer point was Shenyang, not Shanghai.)

You need to ask the airline to be sure. And pay careful attention to how they tag your checked bag when you check in.
