Hong Kong Airlines launched a Chinese New Year flash sale today for flights to many of its destinations in North America, Australia and Asia.

The sale runs from February 6 to 15, 2018 for travel between March and December this year, and includes fares to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Vancouver, Okinawa, Osaka, Kagoshima, Yonago, Okayama, Miyazaki, Bangkok, Beijing, Shanghai, Gold Coast/Cairns and Auckland.

Hong Kong Airlines will be adding reduced fares on February 8 until February 15 to Tokyo, Sapporo, Taipei and Seoul, as well as Male from February 6 to 10.

The airline has quoted fares for some of its popular routes, including Los Angeles and San Francisco (from HK$2,825/US$361), Okinawa (from HK$980/US$125) and Bangkok (from HK$1,210/US$155), inclusive of taxes and fees, though not all of these appear to be available.

At the time of writing, Business Traveller was only able to see return economy class fares to San Francisco and Los Angeles starting from HK$3,124/US$400 on a few dates, largely through March, April and May, with prices generally higher in summer and beyond. Business class fares on these dates tended to be around the HK$14,844/US$1898 mark and up.

However, return economy flights to Okinawa were available from about HK$976 and up on a few select dates in March, with business class fares starting from around the HK$2,696/US$345 mark. These similarly tend to get more expensive during summer and beyond.

Travellers will therefore need to search around to see what dates reveal the best fares.

Business Traveller recently reviewed Hong Kong Airlines’ business class product onboard its new Airbus A350 aircraft to Los Angeles.
