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
Brisbane to Hong Kong from 19 December
Melbourne to Hong Kong between 13 December 2018 until 29
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
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
