HK Express, Hong Kong’s dedicated low-cost carrier (LCC), has signed an agreement with Amadeus to distribute its fares and schedules through Amadeus’ global network of travel agents.
“HK Express is expanding aggressively to give our Guests an affordable, reliable option from our base in Hong Kong. We believe in a multi-channel distribution policy, allowing Guests who wish to book through the travel agent community the ability to do so. We’re delighted to work with a partner like Amadeus to help us increase our reach worldwide,” said Luke Lovegrove, Commercial Director, HK Express.
HK Express today flies to 20 destinations across Asia Pacific including cities in Japan, Korea, Thailand and China.
