British Airways is marking the arrival of its Airbus A380 aircraft in Hong Kong by rewarding Club World business class customers with discounted upgrades to First class on outbound flights to Europe.

 Customers can book tickets on British Airways Club World business class from HK$34,380 and upgrade one way to the First suite from HK$7,100 extra.

Fares must be booked by 4 November 2013. The offer is available for outbound travel from Hong Kong between 19 November 2013 and 31 May 2014.

First class customers will have the opportunity to enjoy the A380 from the front of the main deck in seats evolved from the current First class with 30% more personal space and 60% more personal stowage.

"The UK and Europe are popular destinations for our Hong Kong customers, so it is very exciting to be able to provide them with the latest technology and the brand new, spacious cabins of the A380, said Tracy Dedman, British Airways Regional General Manager, Greater China & the Philippines.

The inaugural flight to Hong Kong for the worlds largest commercial jet will depart London on 22 October 2013 and depart Hong Kong for London the following day, making it the first airline to operate the A380 non-stop between Hong Kong and Europe.

The milestone provides us with the opportunity to showcase our world renowned First class experience to Club World business customers at a very special rate, added Dedman. It also complements the services already offered to Club World business customers, including access to the UK Immigration Fast Track Service, and our world-renowned Arrivals lounge.

British Airways operates two daily non-stop flights to Hong Kong. The A380 will serve flight BA25 from London to Hong Kong, and BA26 from Hong Kong to London.
