Hong Kong Airlines has unveiled the details of its impending entry into the lucrative Hong Kong – London route, which will become the flagship service within its network. Beginning 8 March 2012, the airline will launch daily flights between the 2 cities with 3 Airbus A330-200 jets configured in a premium 2-class layout.

 

Flying into the newly renovated North Terminal at London (Gatwick), flight HX 875 will depart Hong Kong at 2350 hrs, arriving in the UK capital at 0555 hrs the next morning. The return service, flight HX 876, takes off from London (Gatwick) at 2130 hrs to land back at Hong Kong International Airport at 1805 hrs the next day.

 

Travellers can look forward to a private jet-style ambience and high crew-to-guest ratio onboard, with 34 luxurious suites in Club Premier class and 82 cradle seats in Club Classic class. The former offers full-flat beds with turndown service, a fine dining service with individual table setting, superior wines and champagne, as well as luxury amenity kits, while the latter provides a spacious 51-inch seat pitch, 22-inch seat width and superior dining choices. Common to both cabins will be the audio-video on-demand inflight entertainment system delivered through high-definition, widescreen personal monitors, Wi-Fi connectivity and a collection of digital magazines.

 

Hong Kong Airlines becomes the sixth airline to serve London nonstop from Hong Kong, joining giants Cathay Pacific, British Airways, Virgin Atlantic Airways, Air New Zealand and Qantas. The carrier is looking to expand into Europe (following the successful launch of flights to Moscow) and develop its long-haul network after building a sizeable mid-haul network within Asia, where it flies to destinations within China, Indonesia, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
