HK Express is delighted to commence its inaugural service between Hong Kong and Hanoi today, 28 April 2023. As the latest addition to join the airline’s network in Vietnam, this highly anticipated new route offers travellers affordable and flexible flights with more ways to connect with the country.

“We are excited to expand our network in Vietnam,” said Jeanette Mao, HK Express CEO. “We currently fly to Da Nang and Nha Trang, and this new addition of service to Vietnam’s capital Hanoi enables our customers to access all three cities and explore different adventures and landscapes in the unmissable country.”

Marking this special occasion, HK Express is offering limited-time celebratory fares from HKD68* one way, valid for travelling between 8 May and 11 July 2023. Customers can enjoy the offer simply by booking a Hanoi flight via the official HK Express website between 3 and 6 May 2023 inclusive.

Known for its history, culture and incredible food, Hanoi has long been one of the most alluring destinations in Asia. The city promises something for all types of travellers, from enchanting parks and historical monuments to flavour-packed street food and shopping opportunities galore.

With the airline’s new link to Hanoi, HK Express expands its network to 29 destinations. Of these, 20 are operating, while the airline’s flight frequency has already returned to the pre-pandemic levels of 2019.
