Booking Flights: Hong Kong Deals

Tips on Finding Good Fares and Best Times to Go

When it comes to flights, Hong Kong is a major hub in Asia with direct connections to most of the world's main cities. With thousands of international flights per week, Hong Kong's Chek Lap Kok Airport is one of the world's busiests and most efficient airports.

All of the major international and regional airlines fly to Hong Kong. Cathay Pacific, Hong Kong's Flag Carrier airline, offers flights to and from most of the world's major centers.

Getting to Hong Kong is nowadays very easy as there are numerous daily non-stop flights from many cities in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Australia and South East Asia, and more routes are added every year.

Despite the recent trend towards lower oil prices, a combination of other factors such as increased airport taxes throughout the world makes getting cheap flights to Hong Kong (or anwhere else) increasingly challenging, but there are still many ways you can save when booking your flight to Hong Kong.

Here we offer some tips and suggestions that may help you when booking your flights, Hong Kong is more accesible now than ever before:

Know when to Fly

Or rather, know when NOT to fly! Fares normally skyrocket around major National Holidays when demand for tickets is high, so scheduling your trip a week or so before or after pays off.

The main Hong Kong Holidays are New Year's Day on January 1st, Chinese New Year or the Spring Festival which is a three day holiday in January or February (based on the Lunar calendar) and National Day, a two-day holiday beginning October 1st.

Shop around for your flight to Hong Kong

Check first if you have any accumulated miles on your frequent flyer programme!!! All major airline alliances will have at least a few partners that can get you there: OneWorld, Star Alliance, Sky Team, and of course the individual airlines as well. This is the time to use those miles!

No luck? Then check what is available online to get an idea of fares around the times you plan to travel. You can choose from any of the favourite flight search engines available like or that don't tack on additional fees or commissions to the fare.

You can quickly compare all the prices (prices include all taxes and fees) and schedules and help you find the best deals.

Make sure you check the schedules, flying times and connections, don't just go with price. Things to watch out for:

  • Sometimes a cheaper flight might require a lenghty connection or worst, an overnight stay at the connecting city, which will add to the cost of the flight if you have to find accommodations.

  • Other times, when connecting at big city hubs, you might fly into one airport (i.e. New York's La Guardia) and your connecting flight might depart from another city airport (New York's Kennedy), which you might be better off avoiding if at all possible.

If you live nearby a city with a sizable Chinese community, the local Chinese Travel agency is one of your best bets.

In large cities such as San Francisco, LA, Vancouver, Seattle, New York, London, Sydney or anywhere there is a Chinatown for that matter, it pays to check out the home-town Chinese travel agencies. They have a large Chinese customer base and are able to get excellent deals from the airlines, sometimes blocking a large number of seats at special prices.

You can also find these deals advertised in the local Chinese Newspaper which you normally pick up at your Chinese grocery store or Chinese restaurant.
