Hong Kong, 28 April, 2014 – Wego, the leading travel metasearch site in the Asia Pacific and Middle East, and HK Express, Hong Kong’s one-and-only low-fare airline, today announced their new partnership.
“We’re so happy to welcome HK Express into Wego’s flight inventory,” said Dean Wicks, Wego’s Chief Flights Officer. “Hong Kong residents are frequent travellers who make the most of their unique location between North and Southeast Asia, affording them an array of holiday and quick getaway opportunities.”
“Wego’s global audience can also now benefit from the region-wide, low-cost services provided by HK Express which continue to grow with the addition of the airline’s newest route to Fukuoka, and additional services to popular Osaka and Seoul.”
Flight times from Hong Kong to some of Asia’s most exciting destinations are minimal and Hong Kong travellers, along with those who connect with the city internationally, can also enjoy great value options from Wego’s more than 400,000 hotel choices.
“We are delighted to have partnered with Wego to further enhance our sales distribution,” said Andrew Cowen, Deputy CEO of HK Express. “Wego has proven to be an industry leader in metasearch, which more and more people are using to compare the best airfares available in the market.”
HK Express continues to grow at an impressive rate, with plans of increasing their fleet to over 30 Airbus A320s by 2018 to match the overwhelming demand for new destinations and more flights through their existing network.
“Travellers worldwide will benefit from the integration of HK Express airfares at www.wego.hk with the service featured on all of Wego’s 50 country sites in 20 languages,” Wicks continued. “We’re now able to deliver great value airfares from Hong Kong’s only low cost carrier to Wego’s global audience and extend the airline’s reach to travellers everywhere.”
Hong Kong residents can access all of HK Express airfares and global accommodation options in both English and Traditional Chinese at www.wego.hk from May, 2014 – also available for download for both iOS and android.
