Quality service has been the prime focus as well as an ultimate goal of Hong Kong Airlines. At the 2017 World Airline Awards, Hong Kong Airlines was again awarded Skytrax 4-star rating with a jump in global ranking from No. 29 to No. 24, becoming the only Hong Kong-based airline that made progress in ranking this year. The airline also took one step further to win second place in Skytrax “World’s Best Regional Airlines”, demonstrating its continuous enhancement over the years. Mr Tang King Shing, Vice Chairman of Hong Kong Airlines was invited to receive the honour on behalf of the company at a ceremony staged by Skytrax at 2017 Paris Air Show yesterday

Mr Tang King Shing, Vice Chairman of Hong Kong Airlines said, “Hong Kong Airlines will soon make its debut in North America by adding its new flight service to Vancouver, Canada from 30 June. All of us in Hong Kong Airlines are excited to bring our quality service to a market beyond Asia Pacific. In recent years we have been actively exploring international markets, including other destinations in North America and even Europe. Meanwhile we have been keen on service innovation to constantly improve our service level. We are proud that currently several Skytrax 5-star airlines have been the customers of our existing VIP lounge Club Bauhinia at Hong Kong International Airport. And we are confident to bring our attentive services to more customers in July when our brand new VIP lounge at Midfield Concourse of the Hong Kong International Airport comes into service. In addition, our first airbus A350 will join the fleet in August, supporting the launch of more long-haul routes.”

“Hong Kong Airlines has been awarded Skytrax 4-star rating since 2011 and been invited to receive the awards at the presentation ceremony for three consecutive years in recognition of its excellence in service. It is very encouraging to win the 4-star recognition again this year. On behalf of the company, I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to the passengers and industry partners who have been supporting us all along, as well as the accreditation from Skytrax.” Mr Tang continued.

Mr Edward Plaisted, Chairman of Skytrax complimented Hong Kong Airlines for its outstanding performance among regional airlines in the Asia Pacific and even other international markets. He expressed his confidence in the airline’s global expansion which is empowered by a series of upcoming big moves including the new Vancouver service and the introduction of A350.
