Awesome towers. Located at Tsuen Wan, will the towers affect the air passage?

It shouldn't. Aircraft shouldn't pass over there because Tsuen Wan has a lot of tall buildings already, just that no supertalls before Nina. Also, the three bridges have very tall towers too. Tsing Ma is over 200m, right?

Tsuen Wan is actually very close (almost directly under) to the landing path during the summer season. But of course, planning and building department have thought about all these already when they approve the building in the first place

The flight path is across the Shing Mun Tunnel from Shatin, skirting the north side of Tsing Yi and then parallel to the Lantau coast into the airport. That type of path is consistently used across all seasons, depending on wind directions.

That's quite close to Tsuen Wan, then...but with the mountains there, I suppose a supertall wouldn't do much.

in winter, when planes take off will start to turn right toward Victoria harbour somewhere before reaching the Tsing ma bridge.

Very nice tower. I remember seeing it rise when I stayed at Panda Hotel last year. Thanks for the photos.
