downloadHong Kong Airlines has celebrated the launch of its new direct service connecting Hong Kong with Manila. The daily service adds nearly 2,500 seats every week on this popular route, enabling the airline to meet the increasing travel demand from the Philippines and even destinations beyond its home base, including Los Angeles, San Francisco and Vancouver.

 
To commemorate the launch of the new service, a celebratory event was held at Hong Kong International Airport on Friday, 1 June 2018. Hong Kong Airlines Vice Chairman Mr Tang King Shing officiated the ceremony, together with the Consul from The Philippine Consulate General in Hong Kong, Mr Paulo V. Seret and representative from the Airport Authority.

 
Flight HX781 was welcomed by a traditional water cannon salute on arrival in Manila. The
following day, a sending-off ceremony was held at Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 1 before flight HX782 departed for Hong Kong.Mr Tang King Shing said: “Travel between the Philippines and Hong Kong has steadily grown over the years. Filipinos represent the largest ethnic minority residing here in Hong Kong.

 
Hong Kong Airlines aspires to become the airline of choice for Filipinos and travellers from around the world looking to travel between Hong Kong and Manila. Our ever-expanding network now consists of nearly 40 destinations across Asia Pacific and North America, and it continues to grow.”Mr Paulo V. Seret also said: “Manila welcomes business development opportunities, and we are very happy to have an internationally acclaimed carrier such as Hong Kong Airlines to be one of the service providers for the Hong Kong-Manila route. This will surely usher in much closer relations between the people of the Philippines and Hong Kong.”
