The FINANCIAL — Hong Kong Airlines on April 29 celebrated the inauguration of its flight service between Hong Kong and Nanchang, and is currently the only airline in Hong Kong operating this service. Airbus A320 is deployed on the route, operating on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. To commemorate the official launch of the new route, Hong Kong Airlines has held celebrations at Hong Kong International Airport and destination airport.
Before departure, Hong Kong Airlines invited two Nanchang ambassadors dressing in traditional Chinese attire, to present every passenger an inaugural flight certificate and a souvenir in gratitude for their support to the new route. Upon arrival at Nanchang Changbei International Airport, the passengers and flight crew received a warm welcome from the management of the airline – Commercial Director Mr. Li Dianchun, Director of Service Delivery Department Mr. Stanley Kan, and Assistant Director of Commercial Department Mr. Michael Burke. The management of Jiangxi Airport Group Company also joined to greet the inaugural flight at the airport, according to Hong Kong Airlines.
Mr. Li Dianchun, Commercial Director of Hong Kong Airlines said, “We are very happy to launch this direct flight service to extend our footprint to Nanchang. Nanchang is the capital city of Jiangxi Province with a long history, booming economy and prosperous culture that attract tourists at home and abroad. Passengers from Nanchang can enjoy the flexibility to transit at the international hub – Hong Kong, and travel to South East Asia or even a wider area. We hope the new route will cater to the increasing market demand, bringing convenience to both the cities in various aspects like business, social life and cultural communications.”
