Hong Kong Airlines Strengthens Route Network in Japan Celebrated Inaugural Flight to Miyazaki and 1st Anniversary of Kagoshima Route
Hong Kong Airlines launched a twice weekly service between Hong Kong and Miyazaki, Japan, becoming the only airline in Hong Kong operating this direct flight service.

Facing the Pacific Ocean with a beautiful coastline, the Nichinan Coast contains places of natural beauty such as Aoshima and Cape Toi, making it one of the most famous destinations in Japan. Thanks to the great weather in this tropical land, a variety of cuisines like local chicken grills, Miyazaki beef and scrumptious mangoes are all not to be missed. The flight schedule for Miyazaki route is as follows:

The Kagoshima route, another Japan route operated by Hong Kong Airlines, celebrated its first anniversary on 30 March 2015. Since its launch last year, the Kagoshima route has become popular among tourists. To further meet the growing market demand, commencing on 12 May 2015, the Company will expand its Kagoshima flight service from twice a week (every Thursday and Sunday) to three flights a week by adding a Tuesday flight.
Mr. Li Dianchun, Commercial Director of Hong Kong Airlines said, “Miyazaki is Hong Kong Airlines’ first new destination in 2015. We are delighted to be the first local airline operating direct service to this beautiful place, offering our passengers more travel options flying to Japan. Placing a high value on Japan Market, subsequent to the introduction of Miyazaki service, a strong connection would be formed among Hong Kong, Miyazaki and Kagoshima. Passengers can choose to arrive to Miyazaki and depart from Kagoshima, or vice versa. We believe greater synergy will be achieved to effectively improve passenger flow, at the same time offering passengers with diverse options for both business and leisure travel.” “With the launch of Miyazaki service and the additional flight of Kagoshima route, and complimented by the airlines’ existing daily flight to Okinawa and five-time weekly service to Sapporo, Hong Kong Airlines will operate a total of 24 weekly flights between Hong Kong and Japan by May, further strengthening its route network.”
