HONG KONG, Oct. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Hong Kong Airlines will operate a special Embrace “Home” Kong sunset flight on Saturday, 24 October 2020. HX852 will depart Hong Kong International Airport at 4:30pm, flying within 200 nautical miles from Hong Kong over the South China seas. During the 90-minute flight, passengers will get to experience a spectacular sunset from the skies, as well as enjoy breathtaking aerial views of Hong Kong, a favourite activity for many travellers during take-off and landing.
“As one of the city’s home carriers, Hong Kong Airlines is proud to serve the people of Hong Kong and our overseas customers for close to 15 years. The current pandemic has had a prolonged effect on various business sectors in the community, especially those in the travel industry.
“As Hong Kong Airlines continues to do our best to weather this storm, we also want to encourage our business partners and others who are affected to remain hopeful, and stay resilient during this challenging period,” said Hong Kong Airlines Chairman, Mr Hou Wei.
Delivering more – Going above and beyond
With safety consideration as a top priority, Hong Kong Airlines has limited the number of participants and will operate the flight with an Airbus A320 aircraft. Some 100 seats are now open for sale (click here). All-inclusive fare will be sold on a per-row basis, starting from HK$852 for one or two passengers and HK$1,188 for three passengers. As a token of appreciation, each passenger will receive HK$600 in cash vouchers, which they can use to purchase air tickets from Hong Kong Airlines or products from HKA Holidays for their next vacation.
Limited tickets will be on sale at the HKA Holidays official website. For participants who wish to spend the weekend exploring attractions in Lantau Island, an add-on staycation at Novotel Citygate priced at HK$1,288 is available for purchase. The sweet deal includes a one-night stay in a standard room plus dinner and breakfast buffet for two adults.
Passion for service – Supporting business partners
In support of local travel agents whose businesses are also affected by the pandemic, tickets to Hong Kong Airlines’ Embrace “Home” Kong flight are also available for sale at EGL Tours, Hong Thai Travel Services, Sunflower Travel, Miramar Travel and Eternal East Tours. Customers who purchase tickets from these agents may enjoy additional perks or simply check out some the fantastic services offered by the individual travel agency.
Hong Kong Airlines understands how important food and beverage is to customers and has collaborated with its long-time business partner, Gate Gourmet, to provide all participants with a snack box that day. The renowned inflight caterer, who has recently diversified its business to create restaurant-quality meals for fine dining at home, will also gift each passenger with WRLD FLVRS, their new product after the flight.
Passengers holding the special boarding pass for Embrace “Home” Kong flight will get to enjoy dining discount at The Galley by Café Proud Wings, an aviation-themed restaurant. A lucky draw for all participants will be held, with great prizes offered by generous sponsors, including staycations at top hotels and restaurant vouchers. One lucky winner may even win a unique experience in Hong Kong Airlines’ state-of-the-art flight simulator or an airfare and accommodation package for two in Bangkok from HKA Holidays.
Truly Hong Kong – Promoting local art and culture
Carrying the city’s name in its brand with pride, Hong Kong Airlines has always been a strong advocate for Hong Kong art and culture. To make this customer experience an extra special one, the airline will be promoting the works of four local artists, including Lock Lai, founder of TinBot™ local toy company; Li Han Kong Kai Font creator Lee Kin Ming; tattoo artist Lily Cash and illustrator Jane Lee – through the sale of special travel memorabilia featuring their distinctive designs and styles. As limited stocks are available, pre-order is encouraged and purchased items will be delivered to customers at the airport.
