Hong Kong Express Airways will soon offer unlimited flights between Shanghai and Hong Kong for no more than HK$6,888 (US$886) per month, Jiefang Daily reported Thursday.
Passengers can soon book the monthly commuter ticket from the company for unlimited flights between the two cities.
The price of the ticket will probably be less than HK,888, the company said, according to the report.
The airline's first flight between the cities departed on Wednesday from Hong Kong with 117 passengers.
The monthly ticket is already available in Hong Kong for HK,888.
Frequent fliers told the newspaper the biggest advantage of the monthly commuter ticket is saving time on bookings.
"With the commuter tickets, I can go to the airport and get the boarding card conveniently," a Hong Kong native who works in Shanghai told Jiefang Daily.
Hong Kong Express Airways received regulatory approval in January to operate flights between Hong Kong and Shanghai, as well as Hong Kong and Beijing.
It is the third Hong Kong carrier serving the two cities after Cathay Pacific Airways and Dragonair Airlines.
They, along with China Eastern Airlines and Shanghai Airlines, operate 62 daily flights between the two cities.
