The Hong Kong-based Airline Celebrates with HKD55* Up Birthday Fares and HKD5 Specials
Hong Kong, 25 Oct, 2018
Time flies when the guests are having fun! It’s hard to believe it’s already been five years since HK Express converted to an LCC in October 2013. The Hong Kong-based airline is celebrating its fifth anniversary with a special promotion that will make its guests travel dreams come true before other commitments – like marriage, kids or work – get in the way!
Over the past five years, the airline is proud to have flown more than 13 million people to various destinations across Asia, all while maintaining an incredible load factor of 87 per cent in average. Coming up in 2019, HK Express is excited to launch new inflight menu items on 1 November as well as a route to Nagasaki on 19 January. Nagasaki is the popular port city in Japan which is well known with its UNESCO listed heritage sites. The introduction of the new routes brings the airline’s route map to a total of 24 destinations.
To ring in the big birthday this October, HK Express is offering an amazing “Travel Best Before” Birthday Sale to its intrepid guests with 70,000 seats at fares from HKD55* to 23 destinations, including the newly-announced route Nagasaki in Japan. The flash sale will launch in three separate phases, beginning on 27 October (09:00), followed by 30 October (09:00) and 2 November (09:00), running until 4 November (23:59). No matter when guests book, each wave shares the same eligible travel period from 9 November 2018 to 28 September 2019.
Not only can guests snap up HKD55 fares, but they can also take advantage of special HKD5 birthday perks, such as upgraded checked baggage. From 27 October to 4 November 2018, guests can enjoy a special price of HKD5 for every additional 5kg starting from 20kg checked baggage allowance upon purchasing air tickets via HK Express website and mobile app. Better yet, the airline is serving up tasty inflight dishes, such as oriental barbecued pork puffs, pineapple Danishes, and Joe & Seph’s Classic Gourmet Popcorn – all for HKD5 from 27 to 31 October.
HK Express is also partnering iBakery (a social enterprise under Tung Wah Group of Hospitals) to sell handcrafted cookies on board HK Express flights between 27 October to 4 November 2018. All proceeds will be used on bakery training for people with disabilities as well as to ensure safe and quality bakery products.
Planning a trip before marriage, work or having children? Mark the calendar for Nagasaki following HK Express’ route debut this coming January. The historic Japanese city is an ideal winter or spring holiday. Come March, spring blossoms will blanket the city in soothing shades of pink. Travellers will also discover excellent street food, ancient temples, parks, and multiple WWII memorials to round out an enriching visit.
We have been honoured to share the past five years with our loyal and adventurous HK Express guests,” says Mr Jonathan Hutt, Commercial Director of HK Express. “We hope our birthday sales and specials motivate travellers to get out and explore Asia before life gets in the way.
HK Express will continue the celebration with a new “Travel Best Before” video series on social media, which promises even more special fares and travel perks. With these serious savings, guests can plan an unforgettable journey with friends, family - or take off on their own for some “me time”. Stay tuned for the series launch on HK Express social media channels from 26 October 2018 (www.facebook.com/HKExpress)!
