Gatwick launch for Hong Kong Airlines

Hong Kong Airlines has confirmed 8 March as the launch date for its daily non-stop service between London and Hong Kong.  Three brand new Airbus A330-200s featuring a unique all Club Class seating configuration will operate on the route.  Each of these aircraft will showcase two premium cabins: ‘Club Premier’ and ‘Club Classic’.  Both Clubs have been created to deliver the airline’s signature service with wi-fi, a sky bar and state-of-the-art entertainment system.  A limousine service is provided (Club Premier only).  The first aircraft has already been delivered.

Also arrived in Hong Kong is the initial (of 30 in total) Airbus A320 to operate within Asia.

The A320 aircraft will serve routes linking Hong Kong to destinations in mainland China, and North and South East Asia. 

The fleet enhancement is a strategic move in support of the airline’s continued network expansion and enhances Hong Kong’s position as a leading international traffic hub.  Hong Kong Airlines is 45% owned by the parent company of mainland China’s fourth largest carrier Hainan Airlines. www.hongkongairlines.com
