Hong Kong Airlines and EL AL Israel Airlines open reciprocal codeshare agreement

Published on : Tuesday, June 5, 2018

Hong Kong Airlines and EL AL Israel Airlines come into a codeshare agreement. Subject to government approval, Hong Kong Airlines will place its “HX” code on EL AL’s flights between Hong Kong and Tel Aviv. Reciprocally, EL AL will add its “LY” code on Hong Kong Airlines flights between Hong Kong and Auckland in New Zealand, Tokyo (Narita) and Osaka in Japan, as well as Seoul in South Korea.



The codeshare agreement opens up a new and exciting travel destination for Hong Kong Airlines customers. Recognised as a global city, Tel Aviv boasts one of the largest economies in the region and is also the financial and technological hub of Israel. Often referred to as “the city that never stops”, Tel Aviv welcomes millions of business and leisure travellers around the world annually, with many enjoying a unique blend of modern and cultural vibes in the city.



The codeshare agreement will also enable EL AL to add destinations in New Zealand, Japan and Korea to its growing network around the globe, strengthening its presence in Asia Pacific. Customers of Israel’s flag carrier will now benefit from one-stop travel connections to Auckland, Tokyo Narita, Osaka, and Seoul via Hong Kong. Hong Kong Airlines currently serves the New Zealand city five-times weekly and offers multiple daily frequencies to the other popular Asian cities.




EL AL customers travelling in Business Class on Hong Kong Airlines will also enjoy exclusive access to the airline’s flagship lounge, Club Autus at Hong Kong International Airport. The lounge features a suite of facilities that cater to every traveller’s need, including one of the longest food hall and shower facilities for connecting travellers seeking to refresh before a flight.




Hong Kong Airlines Vice Chairman and President Mr Wang Liya said that they are delighted to welcome EL AL as our newest codeshare partner. This collaboration reaffirms the commitment to going global and offering the customers more travel options to see the world.
