Hong Kong Airlines to Launch Daily Flights to Auckland, New Zealand

Hong Kong Airlines is to launch daily flights to Auckland, New Zealand on 10 November 2016.

 The airline will operate the route with Airbus A332 aircraft configured with 283 seats, 24 of which are business class seats.

 Located on the North Island of New Zealand, Auckland is surrounded by two different harbours on the east and west side of the city.

Not only is it the most populous area on the North Island, but Auckland, with its stunning natural scenery close by and mild weather, is repeatedly named as one of the world’s most livable cities.

 You can be almost anywhere in just half an hour's drive from the city centre, including sailing to an island, bungee jumping from the Auckland Bridge, trekking through the rainforest, sampling wines at a vineyard or enjoying the Art Gallery or Aquarium.

 “With the success of our service to Australia earlier this year, Hong Kong Airlines is more than delighted to announce this second long haul service, operating daily to Auckland, New Zealand,” said Mr. Li Dianchun, Chief Commercial Officer of Hong Kong Airlines. “There has been a steady increase year-on-year in the number of Hong Kong and China travellers visiting New Zealand. According to official figures by New Zealand Government, as of March 2016, the total number of visitors from Hong Kong and China has risen by 19.1% and 27.8% respectively. Leveraging on our connectivity in Asia via the international hub of Hong Kong, we believe the launch of flights to Auckland will be welcomed by passengers from Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin, Chengdu, Nanjing, Hangzhou, Okinawa, Tokyo, Bangkok and Taipei, offering them more travel options.”
