The internationally-acclaimed full-service airline Hong Kong Airlines announced that it will add frequency of its flight service to Osaka to two flights daily, commencing 15 September 2016, and that to Sapporo to one flight daily from 30 October 2016. The arrangement is believed to meet the growing travel and trade demand between Hong Kong and the two cities, further strengthening the airline’s network in Japan.
Mr. Li Dianchun, Chief Commercial Officer of Hong Kong Airlines, said, “The Japan destinations have been quite popular among Hong Kong Airlines’ passengers. Satisfying response has been received since the commencement of flight service to Sapporo and Osaka in December 2014 and July 2016 respectively, in view of which we have been proactively exploring to add frequency to these routes so as to meet the travel demand of our passengers. In addition, Hong Kong Airlines will launch its flight service to Yonago soon on 14 September, bringing more travel choices for the passengers.”
