HK Express adds Kathmandu offering

Hong Kong Express Airways has added a new destination to its rapidly growing route network with the launch of services between Hong Kong and Kathmandu.The new scheduled service operates 3 times weekly every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. The inauguration of flights to Kathmandu - the fifth new route to be launched by the airline this year - comes just weeks after Hong Kong Express Airways’ introduction in November of flights between Hong Kong and Yangon, and Kuala Lumpur.

Mr. Ronnie Choi, President of Hong Kong Express Airways said, “As we add another country to our network, we mark another milestone in our development. 2007 has been a great year for Hong Kong Express Airways and I look forward to continuing our expansion into 2008 with the addition of more new and exciting destinations to our network.”

Nepal is one of the fastest growing destinations in southern Asia that has seen visitor figures surge in 2007. In anticipation of demand, Hong Kong Express Airways will operate its new Kathmandu service with new generation Boeing 737-800 aircraft which is capable of accommodating 164 passengers in two classes.
