Hong Kong Airlines is showcasing the worlds first all-business class A330-200 aircraft at an exclusive media tour hosted concurrently in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing to announce Hong Kong Airlines new routes and inflight services.

The latter features, as culinary consultants, famous Hong Kong chef Chow Chung and Michelin-starred British chef Jason Atherton.

The aircraft comprises the airlines exclusive Club Premier and Club Classic seating.

The Club Premier section offers only 34 seats in a 1-2-1 configuration with flat-bed seats that are completely horizontal when fully reclined and measure an overall length of 6 feet one inch.

The Club Classic section offers 82 seats in a 2-2-2 configuration, where the seat pitch (seat-to-seat distance) measures a generous 51 while the seat cushion width is a comfortable 22.

Mr Stanley Kan, Director of Hong Kong Airlines Service Delivery Department, said, Both of the two cabin sections have been engineered with the newest concepts for optimal inflight comfort. The seats are so ergonomically-designed and the configuration so thoughtfully devised that each and every passenger will be able to enjoy maximum privacy - be it for WIFI connectivity, inflight Skybar refreshment or individual inflight entertainment, making long-haul flight boredom a thing of the past.

Business travellers are particularly concerned about connectivity during long flights. Hong Kong Airlines offers passengers the OnAir inflight connectivity services for prompt and fast smartphone, tablet and notebook computer and internet accessibility through WIFI. Passengers can also buy, at any time on the internet, value-added inflight WIFI services.

OnAir Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Ian Dawkins, said, OnAir is the first provider to be able to offer inflight internet access over China, meaning passengers can now stay online in Chinese airspace. It also means we now provide 95% service availability on the routes our customer airlines fly, cementing OnAir's position as the global inflight connectivity service provider.

A VIP air travel experience isnt complete without exceptional inflight dining. Hong Kong Airlines has appointed local celebrity Chinese chef Chow Chung and Michelin-starred British chef Jason Atherton as consultants. They will be helping Hong Kong Airlines to design special menus for discerning travellers.
