Hong Kong Airlines to focus on priority routes to mitigate ongoing market challenges

Date: 2019-11-29

Hong Kong Airlines has been reviewing its network strategy and will continue to focus on operating priority routes under the challenging business environment caused by the ongoing social unrest in Hong Kong. While the airline has already reduced its capacity and flights in the coming months, weak travel demand continues to affect its business and revenue. To mitigate impact from the current situation, Hong Kong Airlines will further adjust its network as follows:

 

Vancouver

Hong Kong Airlines will discontinue its direct flights to Vancouver from 12 February 2020. The last Hong Kong Airlines flight from Hong Kong to Vancouver will be HX080 on 10 February 2020, while the last flight from Vancouver to Hong Kong will be HX081 on the same day (all times local).

 

Ho Chi Minh City

Scheduled flights to Ho Chi Minh City will also cease operation, effective from 20 February 2020. The last Hong Kong Airlines flight from Hong Kong to Ho Chi Minh City will be HX538 on 19 February 2020, while the last flight from Ho Chi Minh City to Hong Kong will be HX539 on 20 February 2020.

 

Tianjin

Hong Kong Airlines is suspending its Tianjin service from 10 February 2020. The last flight from Hong Kong to Tianjin will be HX362 on 9 February 2020, while that from Tianjin to Hong Kong will be HX363 on 10 February 2020.


In addition to the above, Hong Kong Airlines will also continue to adjust its frequencies to other destinations according to changing market demands. 


Hong Kong Airlines would like to apologise for the inconvenience caused to its customers. Alternative travel arrangements will be offered to passengers who are holding confirmed tickets on Hong Kong Airlines flights to and from Vancouver, Ho Chi Minh City and Tianjin after these services end. Passengers who are impacted by other flight cancellations will also be offered alternative arrangements to minimise disruptions to their travel plans, especially during the holiday season.


Details of travel arrangements and contact information are available here.


Hong Kong Airlines will continue to monitor the situation closely and adjust its business plan accordingly to ensure that it remains commercially viable and sustain its long-term growth.
