There are more features to come in phases.
As part of HK Express’ commitment to its customers in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area (GBA) and across Chinese Mainland, the mini-app answers a call for a WeChat payment option, essential travel information on-demand, mobile booking and shopping services, and a localised digital experience and content that’s tailored for customers in Chinese Mainland.
