Full-service flights to Hong Kong for New Year’s from $653 return

It really does pay to book early.

Full-service 5-star airline Cathay Pacific has a short and sweet sale on flights to Hong Kong and while the price might be a little steeper than typical Cathay Pacific sales, it does include one all-important date: New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.

Not to be confused with Chinese New Year, which is a bigger event in Hong Kong, New Year's Eve is still very much celebrated on the island with a countdown and fireworks on Victoria Harbour. And with flights at just $653 return you'll want to get this worm early before fares hike up.

Flights depart from Melbourne at this low price with fares from Sydney starting at $704, Cairns from $707, Brisbane from $711 and Adelaide from $733 return.

Travel can be taken between 24 April 2018 and 6 January 2019, encompassing that all-important holiday period. Unfortunately, black-out dates do surround Christmas from 8-27 December so you'll either have to get in early to steal this deal or arrive just after Christmas Day.

Being a short sale, you only have until midnight 22 April to catch these fares. Check them out now on the Cathay Pacific website.


How good are these fares?

Overall, these fares come slightly pricier than Cathay Pacific's last Hong Kong sale which boasted a starting price of $655 return on trips from Sydney for similar dates.

This slight price rise is true of flights from Adelaide (then $675, now $733), Cairns (then $664, now $707) and Brisbane (then $689 now $711). Though for an extra $50+ it's no great sacrifice and with many peak periods involved, it's likely the fares will only keep increasing in the future.

However, for anyone flying out of Melbourne, you'll be singing as these flights actually come up cheaper than the last sale by $24.
