Hong Kong Airlines Add Japan Services

Hong Kong’s second-largest carrier, Hong Kong Airlines, resumes services to key Japanese destinations in the lead up to the new year.

Hong Kong Airlines will resume its services to Osaka from January 2, 2021, operating every Thursday and Saturday to Kansai International Airport. Earlier this month, the carrier restarted its services to Tokyo, after almost a year of hiatus due to the pandemic and travel restrictions.

In addition to the current service departing for Narita International Airport every Friday, Hong Kong Airlines will add a Sunday service between Hong Kong and Tokyo from January 1, 2021. The airline’s Airbus A330 aircraft will be deployed for both destinations, to ensure ample cargo space is also available to ferry goods and perishables from these two popular cities.

Passengers travelling to Japan are reminded to check the latest travel restrictions imposed by the local government. To offer customers more travel flexibility, rebooking of flights or a last-minute change of destination is allowed up to 24 hours before departure without any change fees.

Hong Kong Airlines is also committed to providing a safe travel experience to all its customers. In addition to deep cleaning and disinfection of the aircraft interiors, HEPA filters on board help to keep harmful bacteria out, and airflow is turned to maximum, to ensure the air in the cabin is filtered every few minutes.

Other preventive measures such as mandatory face covering, contactless check-in and boarding, and temperature taking before boarding are also implemented as an extra precaution.
