We minimise our cost without cutting corners to offer the best prices and operational efficiency around – whether you’re travelling for business or leisure. We encourage discovery by bringing people to destinations that few others serve while offering guests safe and flexible services.

HK Express is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Cathay Pacific Group. Since our converting to an LCC in 2013, HK Express has been the new rising star offering convenient and reliable air travel to destinations around Asia.
