Deal Alert! Round Trip Flight to Hong Kong for $499

United Airlines is offering special round trip flights from Chicago to Hong Kong, and you can get one for $499!

This is a great option for those in the mid west who see the great deals being offered, but with the need to leave our of New York, or Boston, or Washington DC or Los Angeles. This one’s only out of Chicago.

Your trip must begin anytime between now and April 30th. You must depart from O’Hare in Chicago and it’s a direct flight to Hong Kong. On the way back, you make a stop in Beijing after departing Hong Kong, before heading directly back to Chicago. H/T to The Flight Deal and Million Miles Secrets for the heads up on this one.

Darius at MMS also posted this fantastic link to his Google Flights booking link, which will show you the availability and price in real time. Just change the dates as you wish to see the availability and the price. As of now it looks like the best option is leaving the third week of April.

As always, once these deals are gone, they’re gone. As you see above, currently the next best option is more than double the current promotion, and some are close to triple the price. Less than $500 for a round trip flight to Hong Kong is a heck of a deal.
