Hong Kong-based airline HK Express announced its debut route to Naha, the capital of Okinawa Prefecture. Beginning operations on 26 September 2019, the highly anticipated new link will operate daily for added flexibility and convenience.
The Hong Kong-Okinawa route provides another entry point to Japan’s beloved tropical archipelago. Indeed, Okinawa has always been one of the most sought-after destinations by Hongkongers, owing to its pristine beaches, sunny skies and beautiful blue waters. In the heart of it all is Naha, a slow-paced city that oozes coastal charm.
Taking advantage of HK Express’ expanding route network throughout the Okinawa archipelago, travellers can book multi-stop tickets for the ultimate island-hopping experience. With the launch of this route, HK Express now operates flights to three distinct destinations – Okinawa, Miyako (Shimojishima) and Ishigaki – across the islands, so you can combine city life with a bit of snorkelling, diving, and sand-in-your-toes relaxation.
“From tropical islands to historic cities, volcanoes and hot springs, the possibilities are truly endless when it comes to exploring Japan. We are excited to add Okinawa to our expanding list of 13 destinations and counting. We hope this new route inspires our guests to explore this beautiful corner,” said Mandy Ng, CEO of HK Express.
