Hong Kong Airlines private jet

Want to hire an Airbus A330 with a two-class, Club Premier (34 seats) and Club Classic (82 seats) layout?  It can take you non-stop to Beijing in one direction or Los Angeles in the other.  Or perhaps Nice for the Monaco Grand Prix.  Hong Kong Airlines is adding a third aircraft, all 'J' Class, to its fleet in June as a back-up for its successful daily Gatwick – Hong Kong flights.  The aircraft will be available for charter.

The airline says it is pleased with the response to the new UK service launched on 8 March.  Traffic is originating around 50/50 at both ends.  In London the City sales office is in Tower 42.  “Whilst we don’t expect our business travel clients to actually visit this 10th floor suite,  what we are demonstrating is our commitment to that market,” said General Manager Gerard Clarke, a long time Emirates stalwart.  He points out that whilst a chauffeur car service is available for Club Premier passengers within 45 miles of Gatwick (or the London postal region) London Bridge/First Capital Connect offers a 40-minute frequent one stop service to Gatwick.  At Hong Kong the airline serves 15 cities in China. www.hongkongairlines.com
