With the FIFA World Cup 2018 taking place in Russia, Hong Kong Airlines will launch a seasonal thrice-weekly service* linking Hong Kong and Moscow from 18 May to 27 October 2018. The new service will offer passengers additional flight options to Moscow as well as boost travel flexibility and connectivity along the way.
As the capital of Russia, Moscow is the most populous city in the country and Russia during the middle of the year, as the country play host for the upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup. Hong Kong Airlines foresees significant demand for travel into a major political, economic, cultural, and scientific centre in Eastern Europe.
Hong Kong Airlines will deploy an Airbus A330-300 on its new service between Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) and Moscow Vnukovo International Airport (VKO). The wide-body aircraft features a two-class configuration with 32 Business Class seats and 260 Economy Class seats.
Passengers flying with Hong Kong Airlines will be able to look forward to an enhanced flight experience delivered by the airline’s energetic crew. An upgraded Business Class inflight menu will also be offered to passengers, featuring specially designed dishes by Hong Kong chef Gabriel Choy and presented in brand-new tableware locally designed by JIA and CLIP.
Mr Michael Ma, Director of Commercial at Hong Kong Airlines said: “Hong Kong Airlines is committed to helping more travellers see the world with our growing international network. With Russia hosting the 2018 FIFA World Cup, we are excited to offer our customers more travel options into the country’s capital.”
