Hong Kong based budget airline HKExpress has just introduced flights to Shimojishima in the Miyako Islands. The Japanese archipelago is located southwest of Okinawa near the northern tip of Taiwan. The islands offer a wide range of outdoor activities including snorkelling and diving amongst coral reefs, as well as some of Japan’s best beaches. The two-hour flight departs three times a week on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday making it perfect for a long weekend, a quick getaway or a longer journey into southern Japan.
HKExpress was acquired by Cathay Pacific Airlines earlier this year.
