Hong Kong Airlines Queensland Flights to Become Year-Round Service

Hong Kong Airlines has confirmed that it will extend its seasonal flights to Queensland, Australia to year-round flights, commencing 27 March 2016.

The triangular service operating from Hong Kong to the Gold Coast, and continuing to Cairns en-route back to Hong Kong operates every Tuesday and Saturday.

Hong Kong Airlines will complete its seasonal service in March and step up immediately to a twice-weekly, year-round service from late March on the same direct route to the Gold Coast, returning via Cairns, said Kate Jones, Minister for Tourism and Major Events. The new year-round service will open the door to as many as 13,000 extra travellers to the state each year, generating up to $32 million in overnight visitor expenditure. That means in our first year, the Palaszczuk Government has secured additional international flights expected to bring 200,000 more visitors to Queensland and up to $287 million for our economy.

Mr. Li Dianchun, Chief Commercial Officer of Hong Kong Airlines, said, We firmly believe the year-round service will further enhance the cultural, tourism and business exchange between China, Asia and Australia via our strong international hub Hong Kong, bringing into full play our connectivity in this part of the world.
