Hong Kong, 11 Mar, 2015
Today the people of Hong Kong are one step closer to being able to fly to Asia’s hottest destinations for incredible prices. HK Express, the low-fare airline for the people of Hong Kong, announces today that from October it will operate new routes to some of Asia’s most exciting cities; Phuket and Chiang Mai in Thailand and Taichung in Taiwan.
Hong Kong’s very own low-fare carrier is particularly excited by the addition of Phuket to its growing network of “must visit” destinations, which already includes Kunming in Mainland China, Kota Kinabalu (Sabah) in Malaysia and Tokyo Haneda in Japan, which is all the more special as it was chosen by HK Express’ legion of Facebook fans.
Phuket is a holidaymaker’s paradise boasting something for everyone. From the relaxed charm of the south and the lengthy stretches of white sand in the north to the non-stop parties of the west, whoever you are or whatever you are looking for, you are bound to find it on Thailand’s largest island. Thanks to HK Express, opportunities to enjoy unrivalled golf courses, superb snorkelling and diving, exceptional Thai food and the ultimate in spa relaxation will soon be available for unbelievable prices, meaning that everything Phuket has to offer is well within reach of the people of Hong Kong.
HK Express is opening up another side of Thailand too, with very low fares to Chiang Mai. Located in the rolling foothills of the Himalayas in the north of Thailand, Chiang Mai is more laid back than many other Thai cities; a cosmopolitan and culturally rich centre where people can visit temples, trek through the lush jungle on the back of an elephant or get their adrenaline pumping with river rafting or mountain biking.
And as if that wasn’t enough, for those of you who want to explore the urban jungle, HK Express will also fly to Taichung in Taiwan. Taichung’s tagline is that it is an “economic, cultural and
international city” featuring stunning architecture, some of Taiwan’s best museums, a whole host of temples and bustling night markets to satisfy all your city break needs.
Deputy Chief Executive Officer Designate, Andrew Cowen said, “We are really thrilled to announce these new destinations. HK Express is all about opening up hot, new destinations to the people of Hong Kong, allowing everyone to explore the wonders of Asia for themselves; easily, conveniently, safely and at fares that everyone can take advantage of.”
HK Express will commence flights to these destinations at the end of October 2013, flying daily to Chiang Mai, and twice daily to Taichung and Phuket.
