Hong Kong Airline Launches Non-Stop Daily Service Between Vancouver, Canada and Hong Kong International Airport

Hong Kong Airlines makes its North American debut with the launch of its non-stop daily service between Vancouver, Canada and Hong Kong International Airport on June 30, 2017. To commemorate the airline's entry into the gateway city, the airline has partnered with two of Vancouver's favorite dining destinations to curate a special culinary program in-flight. The flight from Vancouver offers a new menu from Dynasty Seafood Restaurant's Executive Chef Sam Leung and Dim Sum Head Chef Garley Leung-celebrated chefs at an award-winning restaurant in Vancouver - who formulate the meal for Business Class. Business class passengers on YVR-HKG route enjoy the award-winning signature dishes from Dynasty Seafood Restaurant, including a Baked Mince Pork Pie and an in-flight version of the Hand-Shredded Smoked Chicken.

Hong Kong Airlines and Virgin Australia to Launch Codeshare Partnership

Hong Kong Airlines and Virgin Australia announced that they will form a codeshare partnership that will provide customers with connectivity to 11 destinations across the flight networks of both airlines. The codeshare agreement forms part of the first stage of the proposed strategic alliance between Hong Kong Airlines and Virgin Australia that was announced in February 2017. Under the codeshare agreement, Virgin Australia will offer codeshare services on Hong Kong Airlines' five return services per week between Hong Kong and the Gold Coast and Cairns, Australia. Virgin Australia customers travelling on those services will also be able to book onward travel to mainland China under an interline agreement with Hong Kong Airlines.

Virgin Australia Holdings Limited Announces ACCC Draft Approval of Alliance with HNA Aviation, Hong Kong Airlines and HK Express

Virgin Australia Holdings Limited welcomed the draft decision of the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) to authorise Virgin Australia's proposed strategic alliance with HNA Aviation, Hong Kong Airlines and HK Express. This decision follows the ACCC's decision to grant interim authorisation for the alliance in March 2017. The proposed alliance will enable Virgin Australia to introduce new direct services between Australia and Hong Kong as well as Australia and China. Subject to all necessary approvals, the airlines will also codeshare on each other's flights between Australia and Hong Kong, between Australia and mainland China and on each others' domestic networks. The airlines also plan to introduce a reciprocal partnership between Velocity Frequent Flyer and Fortune Wings Club to offer guests more opportunities to earn points and access airline lounges. As part of the first stage of the alliance, Virgin Australia will introduce flights between Melbourne and Hong Kong from 5 July 2017. The ACCC is expected to make its final ruling on the proposed alliance by July 2017 following public comments on the proposal.
