Peak season:

Hong Kong’s peak season runs from October through February, and finding cheap flights during this period might be easier said than done.

Between the months of February and September, the south-eastern parts of Hong Kong see a decline in tourist activity due to the hot and humid weather. The off season might be a window of opportunity for you to find the best deals on flight tickets, but since Hong Kong has year-round goo weather, you may be able to find cheap flights here throughout the year with a bit of forward-planning.

Which airlines operate flights to Hong Kong?

Ethiopian Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Kiwi Intl Airlines, South African Airways, and American Airlines all operate cheap flights to Hong Kong. Some airlines, such as SAA offer high inboard comfort, which might be ideal for the long trip, but other carriers like Ethiopian Airlines might be a better choice for travelers on a tight budget. All of these airlines offer flights to Hong Kong throughout the year, so comparing the packages on offer from various carriers and weighing up your options might help you find a deal best suited to your budget and needs.

How to get from the airport to the city center?

Located 37 kilometers away from the Hong Kong International Airport, the city center can easily be reached via a couple of options. There is an Airport Express bus which runs to the city center every 10 minutes, and since it only takes 25 minutes to get to the city, this is one of your fastest and easiest options. Alternatively, you can also opt for a taxi service, but these can be much more expensive than the airport bus.
