Gatwick Airport last Thursday (8 March) welcomed Hong Kong Airlines first ever service from Hong Kong to London.   The A330-200 aircraft, configured with an all Club Class offering, arrived to an official welcome from the airport’s Chief Executive, Stewart Wingate.

“We are very excited to welcome Hong Kong Airlines to Gatwick.  This is a unique service which provides a real choice to business and premium leisure traffic to one of the world’s great cities, with excellent connections to other points in Asia.  We are committed to matching the superior service Hong Kong Airlines will be offering their passengers on board with a premium service at the airport.”

Commenting on the inaugural flight, President Yang stated: “The latest addition to the Hong Kong Airlines network highlights our commitment to the UK market, and our ongoing work to strengthen our position in one of the world’s leading aviation hubs.”  The carrier is part of Hainan Airlines, China’s 4th largest carrier.  Most of its business is expected to be to and from destinations within mainland China. www.hongkongairlines.com.
