After years of pandemic restrictions, Hong Kong is back and eager to reignite travel to the bustling city.
And in that spirit, Cathay Pacific, in collaboration with the Airport Authority Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Tourism Board, is rolling out a generous initiative as part of the ‘Hello Hong Kong’ tourism campaign.
Cathay Pacific is offering 6,020 heavily discounted economy return tickets for Aussie travellers from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth to Hong Kong.
And when we say discounted, we mean the base fare is zero. All you have to cover is the taxes and surcharges.
The taxes on a return ticket are currently around $200 per person. We don’t know yet if the fuel surcharge of around $350 will also be added, but regardless, it’s a great deal to travel to Hong Kong for less than $600 return.
So, how can you get in on this exciting offer? The first step is to be a Cathay Pacific member (which you can sign up for free if you’re not one already).
Once you’re a member, you can participate in this offer which goes live on Monday, May 29 at 12pm AEST. The tickets will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis, with each departure city having its own allocation. You’ll need to act fast.
Each person can only purchase one ticket, so if you’re planning to travel with buddies, each of them will need to be quick to snag their own discounted ticket.
This promotion is only for adults and can’t be booked for children.
These discounted tickets can be used for travel between May 29, 2023, and February 28, 2024, though there may be blackout periods (we don’t know yet).
The minimum stay in Hong Kong with this offer is two days, and you can extend your adventure up to a month if you wish.
The ‘Economy Essential’ tickets (O class) come with a 2x 23kg luggage allowance, and you can earn Asia Miles and Status Points on the fare (or Qantas Points and Status Credits).
They are also upgradeable with Asia Miles.
Keep in mind that all tickets are non-transferable, non-reroutable, and non-exchangeable, though surcharges and taxes are refundable.
Rebooking of the travel date will be subject to a rebooking fee of $460 per transaction.
If you’ve been itching to hit the international skies again and Hong Kong sounds like your kind of place, this could be the perfect time to make your move.
