Hainan Airlines-backed HK Airlines to launch business-class flights to London
Hong Kong Airlines is planning to launch business-class only flights to London next year, offering an alternative to British Airways and Cathay Pacific.
An Airbus A330 will be used for the flights, which are likely to operate to London Gatwick, starting next March.
The route from Hong Kong was attempted by Oasis Airlines but failed, mostly due to lack of funding, in 2008.
Hong Kong Airways is backed by Hainan Airlines, the fourth largest Chinese carrier, and is privately owned.
The airline has an extensive route network of 30 cities in Asia and Europe, with its longest destination Moscow.
Currently it has a fleet of six Airbus A330s and six Boeing 737-800s with both Airbus A350s and Boeing 787s on order, as well as the Airbus A380.
