Celebrate Chinese New Year in Hong Kong from $616 return

Snatch up peak-season fares for low-season prices but only until 12 June.

It's never too early to start booking peak-season fares, especially with Cathay Pacific churning out a winner today with flights to Hong Kong from $616 return.

That might sound a little on the pricier side of things but when you consider that these fares are available over Chinese New Year (5 February) it's a bargain that you can't deny.

This sale is on Sydney and Melbourne flights only, with Melbourne coming up cheaper at $616 return while Sydney flights start from $632 return.

Flights from Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide and Cairns are also included as part of a wider sale, with fares starting from $713 return.

Travel is available between 6 June and 15 November as well as 7 January and 31 May 2019. So even if you're not hoping to catch the festivities of the celebration in Hong Kong, you can still spend the Aussie winter holidays warming up in Asia, the end of the summer holidays exploring somewhere new and Easter long weekend away.

Bookings are being taken now via the official Cathay Pacific website here or via the links below until 12 June for Sydney and Melbourne departures and until 30 June for all other cities.


How good are these fares?

  • Price: Average. These fares aren't the cheapest you can find to Hong Kong with budget airlines like Scoot starting from $373 return. However, these fares are average for sale fares to Hong Kong with Cathay Pacific.
  • Travel time: Great. All flights are direct. Compared to budget airlines, this can cut travel time by more than half with flights on Scoot potentially taking 19 hours, due to stopovers.
  • Airline: 5-star, full-service. You can't do too much better than Cathay Pacific when flying to Hong Kong.
  • Travel dates/weather: Great. These fares include peak-season flights during school holiday and Chinese New Year periods. They only exclude the Christmas holidays.
