Hong Kong AirlinesThe internationally-acclaimed full-service airline Hong Kong Airlines received its 30th aircraft, an Airbus A320, last week. 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.

 

At the same time, the airline will add frequency of its flight to Hanoi to 10 flights per week, commencing 15 May, and to add an additional of 6 flights per week to Beijing from 1 May on top of the current three daily flights.

Mr. Li Dianchun, Chief Commercial Officer of Hong Kong Airlines said, “Recent years
have witnessed the growing demand of both business and travel between Hong Kong
and Hanoi. And there has been an upsurge in demand for flight service between Hong
Kong and Beijing over the years. With the support of our expanding fleet, we hope to
strengthen our network by adding frequency to destinations including Hanoi and Beijing,
providing a solid foundation for the airline to develop from regional to international,
and to offer more choices for our passengers.”

 

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. Driven by the expanding fleet
and network, the passenger volume is expected to reach 7 million in 2016.

 

While rapidly marching towards the international market, the company takes the
responsibility upon itself to contribute to society, especially to the young generation. It
has launched Triumph Sky High Junior Programme and Embrace the World Student
Sponsorship Programme to encourage the youngsters through airport visits and ticket
sponsorship respectively, to learn about the aviation industry as well as to explore the
world. So far, there are about 1,500 students who benefited from the programmes. The
annual Hong Kong Airlines Embrace the World Student Sponsorship Programme was
firstly launched in 2014, upon which overwhelming response was received with 1,000
tickets given to 50 participating schools. In January this year, the airline organized the
first-ever Hong Kong student tour to visit Airbus’ aircraft manufacturing base in Asia,
bringing the 10 most outstanding award-winning students who have participated in the
Programme to Airbus Training Centre in Beijing and A320 Family Final Assembly Line in
Tianjin to learn more about aviation.

 

Hong Kong Airlines held a grand groundbreaking ceremony on 9 March this year for the
Hong Kong Airlines Aviation Training Centre (HKAATC). Located at Kwo Lo Wan Road at
Chek Lap Kok, the HKAATC is targeted for completion in 2018, offering a variety of
aviation services and related training facilities. The completion of the HKAATC will help
to nurture a new generation of aviation elite, and provide more employment
opportunities, spurring the growth of the industry.

 

Based in Hong Kong for almost a decade, Hong Kong Airlines has now grown into an
important member in both local and regional aviation industry. This year marks the 10th
anniversary for Hong Kong Airlines. New services and products will be launched to
celebrate the milestone with the passengers. The company is dedicated to becoming a
popular airline with continuous efforts in improving its service quality, safety standards
and a fast-expanding network.
