Low-cost carriers in Hong Kong, HK Express, has announced its debut route between Hong Kong and Miyako-Shimojishima in Japan. A continuation of its expansion throughout Asia, HK Express has scheduled departures three times a week on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday, so passengers can explore the idyllic Miyako Islands at their own pace.
“We have introduced the first routes between Hong Kong and Shimojishima, making it quick and convenient for travellers to explore this peaceful archipelago,” said Jonathan Hutt, commercial director of HK Express. “Our guests can expect sunny skies, sandy beaches, snorkelling, scuba diving, and countless outdoor activities across the Miyako Islands – making them ideal for solo travellers, couples, groups and families alike,” he added.
Japan’s Miyako Islands are located on the southwestern side of the Okinawa archipelago. Shimojishima is adjacent to the main island, connected by over-water bridges that afford sweeping ocean views.
