"I'm a travel junkie who's hooked on deals from YVR." - Chris Myden

Vancouver to Hong Kong | $649 roundtrip including taxes | cheapest ever?


Delta may have just set a new record for the cheapest flights between Vancouver and Hong Kong that I've ever seen. I say 'may', because there might have been a time when a mistake fare to Beijing or Shanghai caused Hong Kong to drop significantly, and I just can't recall.

A search of the YVR Deals archives doesn't turn up anything cheaper spotted to Hong Kong from previous years. While there have been quite a few crazy deals to Beijing and Shanghai over the past little while (thanks to increased competition from Asian airlines and the occasional mistake fare), Hong Kong never seems as willing to drop.

For comparison, here are the current cheapest roundtrip flight prices from Vancouver to Hong Kong, by airline, in the month of September....


As you can see, Delta is undercutting the next closest competing airline (Air China) by nearly 30% ! A ridiculous gap in the highly competitive world of airfares, especially from Vancouver to Asia.

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.

Vancouver does have non-stop flights to Hong Kong, which take 12 hours of travel time each way, vs the 16 hours (including the stop) it would take with these Delta flights. To save nearly 50% off the cheapest non-stop flights (~$1200 with Air Canada) does seem worth it.

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 $649 CAD.

August 27 - September 08 (Aug 18 - Sep 08 works as well)
September 03-17
September 10-24
October 01-15
October 15-29
November 05-19
November 12-26
November 19 - December 03

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.

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.
