Hong Kong Airlines has launched a two-phase 11th anniversary sale, during which more than 250,000 discounted tickets will be available, including on its upcoming services to Los Angeles and San Francisco.
The first phase has begun today and will run until November 27, before switching over to the second phase, which begins at midnight (GMT+8) on November 28 and runs until December 1. Different destinations will appear in the two phases – the airline hasn’t indicated which destinations will be available in phase two – however business class fares in phase one will be available to book throughout both phases of the sale.
Phase one includes six destinations: Taipei, Seoul, Tokyo Narita, Sapporo, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Discounted one-way fares start from HK$895 (US$115) for economy and HK$2,525 (US$323) for business class to Taipei, while the most expensive, to Los Angeles and San Francisco, start at HK$2,815 (US$360) for economy and HK$16,705 (US$2,140) for business class, inclusive of taxes, fees and charges (Business Traveller checked these rates and can confirm they are currently available on Hong Kong Airlines’ website).
“We wish to celebrate our 11th anniversary with our customers who have supported us in Hong Kong,” said Wayne Wang, assistant director of commercial at Hong Kong Airlines. “As we enjoy a period of unprecedented growth, this is indeed an exciting time to fly with Hong Kong Airlines.”
Part of the HNA Group, which also includes mainland Chinese carrier Hainan Airlines and local budget airline HK Express, among others, Hong Kong Airlines has been expanding notably over the past year, with new routes to North America and also Europe in its sights.
Earlier this year, it began offering non-stop flights to Vancouver, while its Los Angeles service is due to take off on December 18, and its new San Francisco route is scheduled for a March 2018 launch. Hong Kong Airlines has also indicated its desire to launch flights to New York next year, as well as make a return to London in the near future.
