Hong Kong Express takes fourth plane

Hong Kong Express Airways has taken delivery of a new aircraft in preparation for its forthcoming summer route launches. The Embraer 170 passenger aircraft is the fourth of its type in the airline’s fleet and the final aircraft to be delivered from an initial order placed last year.

Featuring the same 76-seat cabin as the airline’s existing aircraft, the new Embraer 170 aircraft offers a 32-inch seat pitch. And thanks to its 2 - 2 configuration offers greater personal space with all seats being either window or aisle.

Commenting on the delivery, Hong Kong Express Airways General Manager Sales, Simon Sin said, “As well as enabling us to open connections between Hong Kong and new cities in Mainland China and beyond, the arrival of our fourth aircraft reflects our commitment to expansion. Our fleet to date has proven efficient in allowing us to pursue market opportunities and with today’s arrival we are well placed to realise our strategic growth targets.”

Starting on 2nd June, Hong Kong Express Airways in conjunction with Mandarin Airlines will launch daily charter services between Hong Kong to Taichung in Taiwan, followed by the commencement of direct scheduled services to Chiang Mai on 22nd June. Adding to its network of destinations in Mainland China, flights to Chongqing - Hong Kong Express Airways’ fourth route into China, will be introduced later this summer.
