Hong Kong, 26 September 2017 Hong Kong’s low-cost carrier HK Express is excited to announce its new route to Zhangjiajie – one of the most beautiful places in China’s Hunan Province! The inaugural flight to Zhangjiajie Hehua International Airport (DYG) will depart from Hong Kong on 18 October 2017, while tickets open for sale from today (26 September 2017).
To celebrate the new service, HK Express is pleased to offer an amazing launch fare: One-way airfare from Hong Kong to Zhangjiajie will start from HKD598*, while return airfare from Zhangjiajie to Hong Kong will start from HKD828*. Guests can book packages through travel agents or flight tickets directly on www.hkexpress.com.
Off the beaten track, Zhangjiajie and the surrounding Hunan region attract adventurous travellers who come to admire the incredible natural scenery. The Zhangjiajie National Forest Park & Scenic Area is known for its unique limestone rock formations, storied Tianzi Mountain, and the adrenaline-pumping Zhangjiajie Glass Bridge, which is suspended above a deep canyon near Baofeng Lake.
To the south, Tianmen Mountain promises cliffside temples and unforgettable skywalks. Not only is it easy to explore the Zhangjiajie scenic area, but the new route also provides easier access to the rest of Hunan province, where travellers can explore the picturesque Phoenix Ancient Town and vast Dongting Lake – China’s second-largest freshwater lake. Another highlight is the region’s hot and spicy Hunan cuisine, which is one of China’s eight treasured culinary traditions.
“We’re excited to provide direct flights between Hong Kong and this under-served region in China,” said Andrew Cowen, CEO and Director of HK Express. “The amazing landscapes and natural wonders promise a rewarding adventure for any traveller. Meanwhile, our guests in Hunan can now access Hong Kong more comfortably and conveniently. We expect these flights to be a sought-after addition to our expanding route network.”
