HKG - > JKT

Sun May 07, 2006 10:05 pm

Hi Guys & Gals,

I've tried desperately to try and find some decent prices from going to Hong Kong to Jakarta. I'm based in Melbourne, Australia atm, and I'm required to goto Jakarta later in August. So i thought i might as well goto Hong Kong and do some shopping. It seems the trip from jkt -> hkg will be almost as expensive as going from mel to hkg itself!! Am i missing something here? Or is this how it is? If someone would kind enough to point me to some fares which make more economical sense i'd be extremely greatful.



Cheers,
Henry

Dates?
Are you trying to do a CGK-HKG-CGK round trip as a separate ticket?
Do you not want to do MEL-CGK-HKG-MEL?
If you are already ticketed MEL-CGK-MEL, what did you pay?
What price did you find for the CGK-HKG round trip?

Happy to try and help, but need to know what you are looking for...
Sawasdee khrab!

Thanks Utapao  Smile

I'm looking to Travel 17th August from Mel - > CGK

then CGK->HKG on the 7th of September, followed by HKG-MEL on the 12th September.


I haven't currently booked anything so far. The cheapest I've found is going Via SIN, MEL -SIN - CGK is approx 1,000AUD with SQ.

The Quote i've gotten with SQ for the CGK - HKG round trip is about 700AUD

Thanks for ure help!  Smile

Some options you might want to consider;

A while ago CX had a special offer on CGK flights. HKG-CGK-HKG was about $1700HK return (about $170 US) including tax.

You might also want to try China Airlines as they have CGK-HKG flights.

Have you asked for Garuda's fare for MEL-CGK-HKG-CGK-MEL?
BTW, what do you want to buy in Hong Kong? Maybe you can buy them in Jakarta instead!  Smile

The fares you quoted are not out of line, as far as "regular fares" are concerned. If you could find a wholesaler, they often have deals that are not published fares, so not in the reservations systems.

As B747 stated, Cathay often has specials that are incredibly cheap.

Right now they have one MEL-HKG for about 750AUD, and a HKG-JKT for 270AUD. So if you could do MEL-HKG-JKT-HKG-MEL, you could get the whole thing for slightly over 1,000AUD. Granted these specials expire end of June, but they always have really good specials.

From the US, CX often has a really good deal on their Asia Pass, 21 days, 18 cities for about $1,300 USD. Perhaps they have a similar offer in the Australian market.

Just checked their Australian site, and they have an "Asian Passport", which allows you 6 coupons to visit up to 4 cities for $1,823, so even though it is slightly higher than the fares you quoted earlier, you could add in a couple of other cities. At least worth checkin into...

Good luck...

Garuda MEL-DPS-CGK/CGK-HKG vv - A$1026 + taxes

Cathay MEL-HKG-CGK vv - A$1380 + taxes

A lot more work, but do-able is:

MEL-SIN with EK for A$687. Then use jetstar asia for SIN-HKG vv, and use Valuair or a Middle East/European carrier for SIN-CGK vv.
ie. QR at S$140 return
