More growth for Hong Kong Airlines

A new non-stop service between Hong Kong and San Francisco is being launched by Hong Kong Airlines from 25 March next year, expanding the carrier’s presence in North America following openings to Vancouver and Los Angeles in 2017.

The San Francisco service will be operated by a new 334-seat Airbus A350 with 33 seats in Business Class, 108 in Economy Comfort and 193 in Economy and will be followed later in 2018 by service to New York.

Business Class seats have 23in width and can recline into a flatbed. The seats are also equipped with the latest high-definition TV screens, power outlets and USB ports, plus onboard wi-fi service is available to all passengers.

Chief commercial officer Li Dian Chun said: “Our transition from a regional airline to a global carrier continues to gain traction, as San Francisco becomes our third destination in North America.

“San Francisco International Airport served an all-time record 53.1m passengers last year, a 6.1% growth year on year, and as it is a popular destination for both business and leisure travellers, we anticipate even more growth in the future.”
