Hong Kong Airlines has been and will continue to operate as normal. We deplore the untrue and groundless speculations about Hong Kong Airlines ceasing operation and reserve the right to take legal action against those who deliberately create these rumours.
Hong Kong Airlines has not been informed or involved in any contingency plan as reported by South China Morning Post on 9 January 2019. We have no further comments to add to this issue.
For the coming Chinese New Year holidays, Hong Kong Airlines is expected to operate close to 1,080 flights and fly more than 224,000 passengers between 1 and 10 February 2019, representing a 4.2% increase in the number of passengers carried over the same period last year. Our team is ready to offer the best service to customers heading home for reunion or spending quality time to travel as a family during this important Chinese New Year holiday.
Hong Kong Airlines is operated by an independent Hong Kong based management team. As a private company, Hong Kong Airlines does not disclose its financial performance publicly nor comment on market rumours or media speculation.
We would like to thank our customers and business partners for their ongoing support and confidence in Hong Kong Airlines. 2018 has been an extraordinary year for the airline as we carried over 7.64 million passengers. We also value the good relationship with our service providers and communicate with them regularly to address outstanding issues.
As one of Hong Kong’s home carriers, Hong Kong Airlines is here to stay and remain committed to offering our customers more travel options while sustaining our long-term growth.
