    Commencing on June 30, Hong Kong Airlines will operate daily direct flights between Hong Kong and Vancouver by Airbus A330 aircraft.
    Li Dianchun, chief commercial officer of Hong Kong Airlines said, "This new route service is Hong Kong Airlines' debut in North America. The new route will also open up more opportunities for travelers worldwide to leverage our connectivity in Asia, hence bringing more diverse and convenient travel options for travelers from Hong Kong, the Pearl River Delta region, Oceania and North America."
    Established in 2006, Hong Kong Airlines has grown remarkably in just ten years with a wide destination network covering 36 major cities across the Asia Pacific region, including Gold Coast, Auckland, Beijing, Shanghai, Taipei, Tokyo, Sapporo, Seoul, Bangkok, Bali and Okinawa. The current operating fleet is made up of 34 Airbus aircraft, consisting of 29 passenger aircraft and five freighters.

    Amazed an A330 has that range! Used to be an A340 route with Air Canada before they introduced B777 service. A330...B777 which would YOU prefer for 12 hours? (A: the CHEAPEST of course... :confused:).
