Travellers from the GBA will be benefited from HK Express’ extensive network in Asia and flexible flight options, to ‘Gotta Go’ with us with affordable pricing. In the future, HK Express will continue to optimise its intermodal connectivity, to tie in with the company’s development strategy in the GBA.”
