Air Canada and StarAlliance partner United are secretly sneaking out an unadvertised fare sale to Hong Kong this week. We noticed the fares from the West Coast yesterday, but today we're seeing some East Coast airports beginning to get in on the action. Roundtrip flights from California are starting at $385, and fares from the East Coast are hovering around $550 roundtrip, these are hundreds of dollars less than the going rate!

Travel Availability

Travel on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Some itineraries may have overnight layovers in a connecting city, which means you could depart on a Sunday as long as you cross the Pacific on a Monday.

The lowest fares on Air Canada are easiest to find in the fall from early September through November, then again from mid-January through March 2020. United flights are available in late August through November.

East Coast cities may require two connections on the return leg of the itinerary.

Sale Period

This sale is unadvertised, and fares may jump at any moment.

These won't last! Book now! You'll have 24 hours to think about your plans with a risk-free cancellation policy.
