Hong Kong Airlines has announced that it has just taken delivery of a new Airbus A320 that is the carrier’s first aircraft to feature sharklets.
The narrow-body jet is the airline’s sixth A320 and has commenced services, as of today. The aircraft has been configured with an all-economy cabin and outfitted with 174 seats.
In addition, the sharklet wingtip device, which has been designed by Airbus enables enhanced fuel saving capabilities and improved flight performance.
Hong Kong Airlines now sports a fleet of 23 aircraft, which the carrier states will help with its future network expansion plans. The regional airline has recently launched services to Ho Chi Minh City and boosted its flight frequency to Hangzhou and Okinawa to three and two flights daily, respectively. Two new services to Kagoshima and Tianjin are also expected to make inaugural flights by the end of the month.
