Hong Kong Airlines has launched thrice-weekly flights to Australia.

The new triangular service operates from Hong Kong to the Gold Coast, and continues on to Cairns before heading back to Hong Kong.

HX015 departs Hong Kong at 21:20 to arrive in the Gold Coast the following day at 08:30. HX016 then takes off from the Gold Coast at 10:30 to arrive in Cairns at 12:45. HX016 continues its journey, departing Cairns at 13:55 to arrive in Hong Kong at 19:10.

Flights from Hong Kong to the Gold Coast operate every Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday, while flights from Cairns to Hong Kong operate every Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday.

We are delighted with the successful launch of this much-anticipated new Australian route. So far, we have received an overwhelming response among travellers since tickets became available for purchase, said Mr. Li Dianchun, Commercial Director of Hong Kong Airlines. We expect Australia will become a popular destination with our travellers who would like to enjoy the beautiful weather, stunning coastline and exciting activities that the Gold Coast and Cairns have to offer, further strengthening the cultural, tourism and business ties between these two countries.

Hong Kong Airlines destination network currently covers 30 major cities across the Asia-Pacific region. With the launch of the Australian route, Hong Kong Airlines will further strengthen its international network and provide passengers with more diverse travel options.
