Hong Kong Airlines to further consolidate network to tackle escalating market challenges

Date: 2019-11-04

Hong Kong Airlines has been operating in a challenging business environment for some time. In addition to strong competition and overcapacity in the market, the recurring protests in Hong Kong since June have also affected travel demand, further impacting its business and revenue. 


The airline has been making operational adjustments from time to time to respond to the changing market conditions. Cost-savings measures were also concurrently implemented to mitigate the financial impact on the airline. However, as challenges in the market continue to escalate, Hong Kong Airlines will further consolidate its network to respond to the current situation. 



Los Angeles

Hong Kong Airlines will discontinue its scheduled services to Los Angeles from 8 February 2020. The last Hong Kong Airlines flight from Hong Kong to Los Angeles will be HX068 on 6 February 2020, while the last flight from Los Angeles to Hong Kong will be HX069 on the same day (all times local). Alternative travel arrangements will be offered to passengers who are already booked on Hong Kong Airlines flights to and from Los Angeles after the service ends. 


The airline will closely monitor the market demand and decide if the suspension or flight consolidation needs to be implemented earlier.

 

Consolidation of other services

Hong Kong Airlines will trim its current scale of operation by around 6%, and will further adjust frequencies to some destinations in its network. Affected passengers will be also be offered alternative arrangements to minimise disruptions to travel plans, especially during the holidays season.
