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.

With safety consideration as a top priority, Hong Kong Airlines has limited the number  ofparticipants 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 Hong Kong priced at HK$1,288 is available for purchase. The sweet deal includes a onenight stay in a standard room plus dinner and breakfast buffet for two adults.
