Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to travel.

You can head to Hong Kong from various cities in the United States with great availability on South Korea’s two major airlines, Star Alliance member Asiana and SkyTeam member Korean Air. Slightly higher (but still cheap) fares are also available on Star Alliance member Air China.

The best fares we found are from San Francisco, but you can also fly cheaply (sub-$700) from New York City and Los Angeles. The good news is that these fares are not only super low, but you can also book from the end of August all the way through the end of schedule, and there’s no minimum-stay requirement.

For ideas on what to do on your layover in Seoul-Incheon, be sure to check out our layover guide.

Since these are all partner flights, if you’re a United MileagePlus member or Delta SkyMiles member, be sure to check the accrual charts to see what miles, if any, you will earn. Also note that Korean Air flights do not accrue any MQMs in Delta SkyMiles.

Maximize Your Purchase

Don’t forget to use a credit card that earns additional points on airfare purchases, such as the American Express Premier Rewards Gold or Citi Prestige (3x on airfare) or the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card (2x on all travel purchases). Check out this post for more on maximizing airfare purchases.

Citi Prestige® Card

While Citi announced some negative changes to this card back in July — including a lower sign-up bonus, the elimination of Admirals Club access and the end of the free rounds of golf benefit — one of its most valuable perks still remains, which is the 4th Night Free perk.  This benefit alone can save you thousands of dollars a year if you use it to its full advantage.
