The average age of the airline’s operating fleet stands at just 3.5 years, making it one of the youngest fleets in the world. The expanded fleet will support the airline’s development plan to set foot on farther continents beyond the Asia Pacific region.

Hong Kong Airlines has been committed to taking care of travellers’ diversified demand.Rooted in Hong Kong, its destination network covers over 30 major cities across the Asia Pacific region, including Gold Coast, Sapporo, Bangkok, Bali, Taipei, Beijing and Shanghai. Frequent daily flights from Hong Kong to cities like Beijing, Hanoi, Bangkok, Shanghai and Okinawa have been well received by the passengers. Being one of the youngest fleets in the world, the whole-Airbus fleet has an average age of just 3.5 years. In 2015, Hong Kong Airlines has recorded a passenger volume of over 5.6 million with a market share of almost 9% at Hong Kong International Airport.
