Hong Kong Airlines upgrades BKK service


HONG KONG, 22 August 2017: Hong Kong Airlines has rescheduled its inaugural flight for its new A350 that will now fly to Bangkok, 10 September, a week earlier than originally planned.

The airline will use an Airbus A350 on the route to Bangkok through to the end of October, when the new winter timetable begins.

Currently, it deploys A330-300s for its six daily services to Thai capital.

The airline will also fly the A350 on services to Shanghai and to Taipei starting 1 October.

Hong Kong Airlines, which has served Bangkok daily since 2010, operates a daily service to Krabi in South Thailand.

It’s all-Airbus fleet of A320s and A330s aircraft will shortly see the addition of the new A350. It has 15 of the aircraft on order, the first of which will be delivered for the Bangkok service this September.

Last June, the airline launched a service from Hong Kong to Vancouver and is planning a second flight to North America, to Los Angeles by mid-December.
