As a followup to my original Peach Aviation post, Peach Airlines has now started flying this route and still offering the promotional fares of $888 HKD before taxes and fees.
Total $2,089 HKD roundtrip after taxes / fees.
There’s lots of other fares on other dates for $999 which is still a great deal.
Flight times are:
HKG – KIX 00:50 Depart 05:30 Arrive
KIX – HKG 21:10 Depart 00:05 Arrive
45 minutes to turn a plane around is certainly ambitious, but not unheard of for a low cost carrier. They use an airbus A320 which isn’t too big, all economy class. I tried to look up on-time statistics but they’re not yet available on Flightstats. Can anyone who’s flown them on this route share their experience?
