Find the cheapest flight to Hong Kong

Hong Kong International Airport (airport code HKG) began operations in 1998, replacing entirely the old airport (which was called Kai Tak Airport). Hong Kong’s airport is also known as Chek Lap Kok Airport because that is the name of the island it was built on. The airport has won several awards over the years, including Skytrax’s “Best Airport” for several years. According to Guinness World Records, it is the most expensive project in history. Hong Kong’s airport is the primary hub for both Cathay Pacific and Dragonair and several other smaller airlines including Hong Kong Express Airways, Hong Kong Airlines, Oasis Hong Kong Airlines and Air Hong Kong.

Luckily, Hong Kong is surrounded by plenty of green spaces where you can take refuge from the high rises. This is a city of glamor and chaos, and while it is not the most relaxing place to visit it is well worth at least a couple of days.
