I just saw this incredible flight deal posted over at our friends Chris Myden’s site YYC Deals.
Delta has just set a new record for the cheapest flights between Calgary and Hong Kong that I’ve ever seen. The previous record was set on May 23, 2013 when they dropped to $801.
While Beijing and Shanghai have dropped into the $700s on occasion, this is the first time I’ve seen Hong Kong break the $800 barrier.
For comparison, here are the current cheapest roundtrip flight prices from Calgary to Hong Kong, by airline, in the month of September….
As you can see, Delta is undercutting the next closest competing airline (China Eastern Air) by over 35% ! A ridiculous gap in the competitive world of airfares.
How to find and book these flights to Hong Kong
These cheap flights are currently showing in Delta’s system for the months of September, October, November, and very early December. Incidentally, October and November are often cited as the two best months of the year to visit Hong Kong when the temperatures are at their most comfortable (19C-28C) and plenty of sunshine.
The available date combinations are pretty limited though. Wednesday to Wednesday flights look to be the best bet. They have 1 stop each way, in Seattle.
Here are some example searches on Kayak to get you started. When you get to Kayak, click on the orange ‘Select’ button which will take you to Delta.com where the flight can be booked. When you get to Delta’s site, the verified price will show up as $770 CAD.
It can be worth experimenting with Wednesday to Saturday dates on Kayak as well. Certain Wednesday to Saturday date combos are showing up for slightly more ($796).
This is not an advertised sale, so it’s hard to say how long it will stick around. Typically, with unadvertised price drops on Delta, I find they often disappear very quickly (under 24 hours). But sometimes they do stay around for a few days.
These flights won’t last long so I suggest you take advantage of the seat sale before it’s too late.
