As we approach the end of the year and focus on our Christmas holiday plans, it's a good idea to think further ahead to 2020 and where you may want to travel to next year.

Two of the biggest airlines in the world, Cathay Pacific and Emirates, have just released their early bird fares for 2020.

Despite the recent disruption in Hong Kong Airport, these sale flights aren't likely to be affected as passengers will be transiting through the airport, rather than entering Hong Kong itself.

The airline is offering special fares to over 20 destinations across Europe, Africa, North America and Israel.

Meanwhile, Middle-Eastern carrier Emirates is offering early bird flight deals to its more than 50 European locations.

Both airlines have state-of-the-art technology offerings to try and entice potential travellers.

Cathay Pacific operates the most modern airliner in the skies, the Airbus A350. It boasta super spacious cabin, Wi-Fi and onboard cameras giving passengers a view from the tail, the nose and the underbelly of the aircraft.

Emirates also offers Wi-Fi along with 4500 channels of entertainment and information on its ICE inflight entertainment system.
