Hong Kong Airlines will be “suspending until further notice” its all-business class flights to London Gatwick with effect from 10th September 2012 and will re-deploy the three specially equipped, all-Business Class A330-200s that currently service the route to charter flights. The all-Club Class service was launched on 8th March this year.
“We believe that a regional model focused on Asia Pacific is most appropriate for Hong Kong Airlines at this stage of our growth,” said Yang Jian Hong, President of Hong Kong Airlines. “Our key focus will be building our regional network and strengthening our business across China, South East Asia, Japan and Korea. Hong Kong Airlines will provide every assistance to its customers and the travel trade to arrange either re-booking or a full refund.”
