Travel to China in style with Skytrax five-star ranked Hainan Airline's latest Early Bird Sale for October. Nonstop flights departing from the carrier's U.S. gateways to various cities across China are marked as low as $315 roundtrip, or $163 one-way.
With prices this cheap, there's a slight catch – the lowest rates are for travel almost a year from now in 2020. So if you're the pre-planner type and like to book way ahead in advance, you won't find a better deal than these on China's top-ranked airline.
- Travel Period: September 1 - October 4, 2020.
- Travel Days of the Week: Varies by city pairing as Hainan does not operate all routes daily.
- Blackout Dates: None listed.
If September is too far off, tickets for travel this spring between March 1 and April 23, 2020, are available for around $60-90 more depending on the city pairing.
Tickets must be purchased by Monday, October 28, 2019.
Many third-party booking and search sites are listing prices higher than the official sale rate. So make sure to book these tickets directly on the Hainan website to find the listed prices below.
