Hong Kong Airlines Takes Delivery of 30th Aircraft; to Increase Beijing and Hanoi Flights

Hong Kong Airlines has taken delivery of its 30th aircraft, an Airbus A320.

The average age of the airlines operating fleet now stands at just 3.5 years, making it one of the youngest fleets in the world.

The airline has ambitious growth plans and on 15 May 2016 will increase flights to Hanoi, Vietnam to 10 flights per week. The airline will also add 6 flights per week to Beijing from 1 May on top of the current three daily flights.

Mr. Li Dianchun, Chief Commercial Officer of Hong Kong Airlines said, Recent years have witnessed the growing demand of both business and travel between Hong Kong and Hanoi. And there has been an upsurge in demand for flight service between Hong Kong and Beijing over the years. With the support of our expanding fleet, we hope to strengthen our network by adding frequency to destinations including Hanoi and Beijing, providing a solid foundation for the airline to develop from regional to international, and to offer more choices for our passengers.

In 2015, Hong Kong Airlines recorded a passenger volume of over 5.6 million with a market share of almost 9% at Hong Kong International Airport. Driven by the expanding fleet and network, the passenger volume is expected to reach 7 million in 2016.
