Hong Kong Airlines serves four-times weekly flights to second Beijing route

The flight will return daily starting 26 March.

As China relaxes its border restrictions, Hong Kong Airlines (HKA) opened its second Beijing route, offering four-times weekly service linking Hong Kong and the Beijing Daxing International Airport. 

In a statement, HKA said the inaugural flight HX308 left Hong Kong at 0935 and arrived in Daxing Airport at 1255. 

HKA Chairman Hou Wei said the route will boost the market’s position in Hong Kong and the Asia Pacific region.

“Benefiting from the unprecedented pent-up demand for travel, we’ll increase flight service between Hong Kong and Beijing,” read the statement.

The inaugural flights posted 90% load factor performance. Hou said the flights between Hong Kong and Daxing will become daily beginning 26 March. The airport is also eyeing to increase service between Hong Kong and Beijing Capital Airport from the current once-a-day to two to three flights a day.

HKA plans to leverage the lifting of strict health restrictions globally by increasing flight operations to 44 sectors per day in April 2023.  

This will reach 45% of those at the pre-pandemic level; flying to 18 regional destinations including Tokyo, Osaka, Okinawa, Sapporo, Seoul, Taipei, Bangkok, Manila, Hanoi, Bali, Beijing Capital, Beijing Daxing, Shanghai Hongqiao, Shanghai Pudong, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Chengdu and Haikou, which is 50% of the operation level before the pandemic. 

Aside from this, HKA is also launching a new direct service to Fukuoka next month.
