HK Express is slinging one-way tickets to Hanoi from Hong Kong for as low as HK$68, meaning Hongkongers can book return trips to the Vietnamese capital for just HK$136 (excluding taxes and surcharges).
The booking period is only from midnight on May 3 until 11:59pm on May 6 for trips falling on or between May 8 to July 11, 2023. The promotion from the budget airline owned by Cathay Pacific is only valid for return trips beginning from Hong Kong to Hanoi.
Limited seats are available and note that travellers can only bring carry-on luggage.
Hanoi is the second-largest city in Vietnam, and with 1,000 years of history, is an incredible meeting point of culture, religion, and food. It is home to the famous Train Street, mingling of old and new in the colonial French architecture with iconic buildings like the Hanoi Opera House, night markets, temples, and cheap, delectable street food.
The Hong Kong government had previously announced that three locally based airlines, Cathay Pacific, HK Express, and Hong Kong Airlines, would be offering free air tickets for overseas tourists to travel to the Asian hub as part of the Airport Authority’s “World of Winners” campaign. This is part of the government’s “Happy Hong Kong” project aiming to re-attract international tourists. However, HK Express has yet to announce details of their giveaway.
Earlier in the week, Cathay announced the gifting of more than 3,200 tickets from London and Manchester to Hong Kong starting on May 9.
