Qantas to Operate Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner on Hong Kong Flights

Qantas has confirmed that the next destination for its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft will be the vibrant city of Hong Kong.

 Qantas’ Dreamliner carries 236 passengers across three cabins. It features the latest version of the airline’s Business Suite as well as new Premium Economy and Economy seats with extra storage compartments and more legroom.

The Dreamliner’s Hong Kong flights will commence as follows:

Brisbane to Hong Kong from 19 December 2018
Melbourne to Hong Kong between 13 December 2018 until 29 March 2019
Sydney to Hong Kong from 30 March 2019.

The changes are timed with the arrival of Qantas’ eighth Dreamliner and will join the national carrier’s A330 and A380 aircraft that also fly to Hong Kong.

Hong Kong joins Los Angeles, New York, London and San Francisco as international destinations served by the Qantas Dreamliner, as the more efficient aircraft gradually replaces the 747 on key routes.

“Introducing the Dreamliner to Hong Kong reinforces our commitment to Asia, where we are seeing strong demand from premium travellers,” said Qantas International CEO, Alison Webster. “The customer response to the Dreamliner has been overwhelmingly positive. Feedback on the cabin environment, from the seats to the anti-jetlag measures, is fantastic. It’s an aircraft people really enjoy flying on. The combination of our 787, A330 and A380 aircraft operating between Australia and Hong Kong over the peak season will see customers enjoy a premium inflight experience on every flight.” 

Qantas will also bring forward the peak season upgrade of one of its two daily Sydney-Hong Kong flights from a 747 to the A380 aircraft to early December, offering four cabins on the route including First Class through to the end of March 2019.
