Q: How to find cheap flights from Hong Kong (HKG) to Shanghai (SHA)?
A: The price of the international air tickets change from time to time, so we recommend our passengers to check the price 3 months before departure to increase the opportunity of getting a ticket with high discount. And normally, the tickets of the flights operated late at night or early in the morning enjoy higher discount. In addition, passengers can order the flights operated by no frill airlines, whose tickets are a lot cheaper than tickets sold by other airlines, but the they often don’t provide in-flight meals and the luggage allowance is also very little.

Another option is the combination of high speed trains and flights. Hong Kong, Guangzhou and Shenzhen will be connected by frequent high speed trains, which make the transfer between the 3 cities very convenient. Passengers can get to Guangzhou or Shenzhen first by high speed train, then take a domestic flight to Shanghai.
