Hong Kong Airlines touches down on the Gold Coast

The skies over the Gold Coast just got a little busier with Hong Kong Airlines starting a three times weekly service from the Gold Coast to Hong Kong!

The new service will fly from Hong Kong to the Gold Coast, and then up to Cairns en route back to Hong Kong on every Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday.

Mr. Li Dianchun, Commercial Director of Hong Kong Airlines, says they’ve received an overwhelmingly positive response to their arrival on the Gold Coast, and expect it to become a population destination with travellers.

A full service airline, currently rated four-star by Skytrax, Hong Kong Airlines’ network currently covers 30 major cities across the Asia-Pacific region.

The current operating fleet is made up of 27 Airbus aircraft with an average age of around 3.5 years, making them one of the youngest fleets in the world.
