Stepping into its 10th year since establishment, the internationally-acclaimed full service airline, Hong Kong Airlines (the “Company”) continues its rapid growth with fleet and network expansion to meet increasing travel demand. This year, Hong Kong Airlines has taken delivery of five Airbus aircraft and reaches a fleet size of 32 aircraft.
The latest addition, an Airbus A330-300 wide-body, has a seating capacity of 285 passengers and 695 cubic feet of cargo. It is configured with 30 Business Class seats and 255 Economy Class seats. The Company’s 32nd aircraft is now in operation and is mainly employed on routes to Okinawa, Osaka, Tokyo, Bangkok and Denpasar. Hong Kong Airlines operates one of the youngest fleets in the world with a current average age of around 3.9 years. The modern fleet is equipped with efficient engines which can reduce noise and improve fuel consumption, thus maximising operational performance.
