Tips on Finding Cheap Flights to Hong Kong

1. Make reservation 1-3 months in advance. Usually, the earlier you book, the lower the ticket fare. However, there are some cases the airlines offer great discount just before the plane takes off when there are tickets left, but this is very risking.

2. Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Guangzhou are connected by high speed trains. If the air ticket to Hong Kong is beyond your budget, you can check if there’s any flights with discount to Guangzhou or Shenzhen, and fly there then transfer to Hong Kong by high speed train. This kind of combination may be more cost saving.

3. Passengers with fixed travel arrangement can buy round-trip tickets, because normally the round-trip ticket enjoys higher discount.

4. Passengers with no high demand of food on the plane and the luggage allowance can choose the low-cost airlines like Asiana Airlines to get a flight ticket to Hong Kong. But be careful of the luggage allowance because you may need to pay a lot for the extra luggage.

5. Normally, the flights depart or arrive late at night or early in the morning are cheaper than others.

6. Some airlines cooperate by the way of sharing one plane, which means the air ticket of a plane are sold by different airlines. In this case, passengers can just buy the cheapest ticket when the departure time of different numbered flights is the same.

Maybe cities like Moscow. The cost would be around USD400. The problem is when will you make this trip to HK? I heard HK stopped entrance of non-HK citizen already due to the coronavirus.

Hi, if your route is Atlanta - Shanghai - Atlanta, you need to apply for a visa in advance. If you want to use the 144 hours free visa, you need to transfer in Shanghai to another country.

The price is hard to say, it depends on the airline's adjustment. Some times it may lower than USD200, some time the price can be very high as well like over USD500. You can check it by date
