Hong Kong Airlines to increase flights between Naha and Hong Kong

February 21, 2014 Ryukyu Shimpo

Hong Kong Airlines will increase its round-trip flights from Hong Kong to Naha from mid-March. It will operate two round-trip flights a day. The company is aiming to expand its business by attracting tourists not only from Hong Kong but also from China and Southeast Asia via Hong Kong.

Currently, the airlines use an aircraft with 283 seats. It will add another aircraft with 174 seats between March 19 and 29 during the winter schedule.

The airlines introduced the current aircraft to fit in with the increasing number of tourists to Okinawa last April. Two years ago, a larger aircraft was used only during the summer season. However, the airlines have used this aircraft since last year because of good demand.
