Round-trip flights from Houston (HOU / IAH) to multiple destinations in China are on sale at the moment. Airfare starts at $714 with either one or two connections. Delta is the operating airline. There is a stopover component for this fare basis, but it’s not very useful since it will only allow you to do the stop at the American gateways.
Example itinerary will be using Shanghai as the destination, but the example dates and date ranges as well as calendar should be fairly similar between all destinations. That means if you find a good date pair for PVG, it should work with PEK and so on…
Here is a list of cities participating in the sale:
- Shanghai (PVG) – $714
- Beijing (PEK) – $741
- Hong Kong (HKG) – $746
Taipei, Taiwan (TPE) is also part of Delta’s sale – $746
