Hong Kong Airlines has received it's first Airbus A350 aircraft, on lease from AerCap, making the carrier the 15th airline to operate the airliner. Altogether Hong Kong Airlines will acquire 21 Airbus A350 XWBs, including 15 purchased directly from Airbus and six on lease from third party lessors.
Hong Kong Airlines has configured its A350-900s with a premium three-class layout with a total of 334 seats, comprising 33 in Business Class, convertible to fully lie-flat beds, 108 in the new cabin class “Economy Comfort” and 193 in Economy Class. Slightly different from the configuration on the other wide-bodies, such as the A330.
The aircraft features the airline’s latest cabin products, including an all-new entertainment system and full in-flight connectivity. After an initial period flying on regional routes, Hong Kong Airlines’ A350-900 will begin long-haul operations in December this year, flying on the carrier’s non-stop service to Los Angeles.
About Airline PR
This is a special section on Airline Branding, and Airline Public Relations written by me on all the flights I have been fortunate enough to have been on. These are not records taken from somewhere else, but are actual flights I have been on. Most of the flight trips are officially sponsored by the airline companies in order to promote their certain routes, and aircraft. Airline promotion and PR related work in the aviation industry is one of my expertise.
