Hong Kong Airlines to launch non-stop flights from San Francisco
Hong Kong Airlines announces the launch of a new non-stop service between San Francisco and Hong Kong, starting March 25, 2018. Tickets are now available for purchase on the airline’s website with Business class tickets starting from $4,760.00 and Economy class tickets starting from $428.00. *
The new service expands the airline’s presence in North America, following the launch of its services from Vancouver on June 30, 2017, and the upcoming launch from Los Angeles on December 18, 2017. In addition, Hong Kong Airlines will further enhance connectivity to the U.S. by launching a service from New York City later in 2018.
The timing of the new San Francisco service ensures that travellers arrive in Hong Kong in the early evening, just in time to enjoy the city’s vibrant culinary scene and bustling night life.
Hong Kong Airlines’ new San Francisco-Hong Kong service will be operated by its brand-new fleet of Airbus A350 aircraft. Each fuel-efficient widebody aircraft features a total of 334 seats, with 33 in Business Class, 108 in Economy Comfort, and 193 in Economy Class.
All Business Class seats have a width of 23” and fully recline into a flatbed. This, combined with specially designed smooth and soft bedding, ensures passengers the highest quality of sleep in the air. All seats are also equipped with the latest high-definition TV screens—offering a variety of in-flight entertainment options, including movies, television, news, and music—as well as a power outlet and USB port fitted to the side for maximum convenience. Finally, onboard Wi-Fi service is available to all passengers, with the first 15 minutes of use free.
“With the announcement of San Francisco as our third destination in North America, we continue to work towards our goal of transitioning from a regional airline to a global carrier,” Chief Marketing Officer George Liu says. “According to San Francisco International Airport, it served an all-time record of 53.1 million passengers last year, which represented a 6.1% growth year over year. By offering more options and flexibility to the
growing number of travellers at this airport, we can provide greater access to Hong Kong, and the Asia Pacific region as a whole, through Hong Kong Airlines’ extensive network.”
“We are honored that Hong Kong Airlines has made San Francisco a key part of their growth strategy in the United States,” Director of San Francisco International Airport Ivar C. Satero says. “This move reinforces our airport as the global gateway to the world’s foremost center of technology, innovation, and tourism.”
