An initial four-flights-a-week summer service commenced on Friday.
Until 23 August, 2008, flights will depart every Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday, leaving Hong Kong at 0230, arriving at Incheon International Airport at 0405. The return leg departs Seoul at 0805, arriving in Hong Kong at 1030. Doubly-weekly Hong Kong-Seoul flights will be available from August 24, 2008.
Earlier this year the airline also launched new routes to Japan; daily services to Shanghai and Beijing.
Raymond Ng, Director of Commerce at Hong Kong Express Airways said, “We are delighted to launch these scheduled flights between Hong Kong and Seoul. Korea has long been a favoured hot-spot for travellers from Hong Kong, and with the introduction of this service we are able to offer more options and flexibility for those travellers, with the guarantee of a quality in-flight experience. For our new Korea route, we have recruited over ten native Korean speaking flight attendants to ensure travellers enjoy a seamless in-flight experience.”
In the past few months, Hong Kong Express has rapidly expanded and strengthening its network in the Asian region, and will continue to do so in the near future with the launch of more new routes, including Manila, Philippines and Osaka, Tokyo in September.
