The low-fare airline Rings in its New Route with Special Launch Fares

 

Hiroshima, 27 October 2015                   HK Express is excited to announce its inaugural Hiroshima-Hong Kong flight today (27 October 2015) alongside excellent deals. One of the hottest destinations in Asia, Hong Kong will finally be accessible to keen travellers in Hiroshima — and a special debut of the cabin crew’s sleek new uniforms will make this new route extra exciting.

The new connection marks yet another milestone for the brand, which is the only low-fare airline that connects Hiroshima and Hong Kong. To ring in the momentous occasion, HK Express is offering amazing one-way Hiroshima-Hong Kong tickets starting from JPY4,060*. Guests booking between 27 October and 2 November can take advantage of flexible travel dates anytime from 27 October 2015 to 31 January 2016.

But it wouldn’t be an HK Express launch without a few festivities — both Guests and members of the media joined an exciting event in Hiroshima City today, where the Hiroshima mascot Soramy unveiled the special fares alongside HK Express CEO Andrew Cowen, four cabin crew members and several VIP’s.

“We are especially excited to launch this new route to Hong Kong, as HK Express is the only low-fare airline connecting the two cities,” said HK Express CEO Andrew Cowen. “We hope these special launch rates will enable more of our Guests to explore Hong Kong, and even to our Southeast Asia destinations via our connecting service..”  HK Express offers connecting flights from Hong Kong to multiple destinations in south-east Asia, including popular favorites Chiang Mai and Phuket in Thailand, DaNang in Vietnam, and Siem Reap in Cambodia. 

To ring in the new route, HK Express’ cabin crew showcased their brand new uniforms for the first time on the inaugural Hiroshima flights. The gorgeous purple and sliver looks are dynamic, approachable and energetic — just like the airline itself.

Often referred to as “New York on steroids,” Hong Kong is nothing if not vibrant. From its buzzing nightlife to tranquil temples, there’s always something to do in this busy destination. Autumn is the best time to visit Hong Kong, thanks to clear skies, comfortable temperatures and loads of outdoor events. Travellers will surely fall for the diverse international cuisine, picturesque hiking, tiny hole-in-the-wall shops and sky-high towers — navigating the streets of Hong Kong is an adventure in itself.
