More flights to Japan planned for Q2.
HONG KONG – Hong Kong Airlines has launched its new direct service connecting Hong Kong and Fukuoka to meet the soaring demand for this popular route and numerous destinations around Kyushu.
The four-time weekly service is operated by an Airbus A320 aircraft. Celebrations were held at both Hong Kong International Airport and Fukuoka International Airport, to commemorate the official launch of this route.
Passengers flying on the first flight to Fukuoka were presented with delightful souvenir bags to mark the occasion and show gratitude for their steadfast support of the route. Upon arrival at
Fukuoka Airport, Hong Kong Airlines’ inaugural flight was greeted by a traditional water cannon salute. Representatives from Fukuoka Airport, Fukuoka Prefecture, and Kyushu Tourism
Organisation warmly welcomed the passengers, flight crew, and representatives from Hong Kong Airlines.
Hong Kong Airlines President Jeff Sun said, “Hong Kong Airlines is immensely proud to add this new route to its recovering network. Fukuoka serves as an important gateway to Kyushu, and launching this service would pave the road to enhance our promising future operations in the area.” The company plans to resume service to Kagoshima this year to further strengthen its presence in the Kyushu region.
