Hong Kong Airlines has become Airbus` latest customer by signing a memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for 51 Airbus aircraft, including 30 A320 Family aircraft, 20 A330s as well as an Airbus Corporate Jet. An engine choice will be made at a later date.

Since the company was established in 2001, Hong Kong Airlines has grown rapidly and built an extensive full service network serving Asian and Chinese mainland destinations.

Demand for air travel in and out of Hong Kong is strong and will continue to grow. These new aircraft will help us grow our operation and to re-enforce Hong Kong as a key gateway in the region. Our new A320 fleet will allow us to add new destinations and build up frequencies on our existing services. In buying the A330 aircraft we are establishing strong foundations for extending our high quality service to longer haul destinations such as Australia, the Middle East and Europe. With these aircraft in our fleet we are aiming to create new standards in comfort and service which will position Hong Kong Airlines amongst the leading airlines in Asia Pacific, said Ren Wei Dong, Chairman, Hong Kong Airlines.

As part of the agreement Hong Kong Airlines is also buying an Airbus corporate jet to cater for the growing market in private aviation.

We are delighted to welcome Hong Kong Airlines as a new Airbus customer. In one of the most competitive markets in the world, this young and dynamic airline has quickly made it`s mark in offering quality and reliable service to previously un-served cities. We wish Hong Kong Airlines all the best as it makes an important step to realise its ambitions, said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers.
