The widebodies will be used mainly on routes across Asia but also further afield, the carrier confirmed.

Zhang Kui, president of Hong Kong Airlines, said: “The A330’s flexibility also allows us to further deploy these aircraft to some long haul routes in the future.”

Hong Kong Airlines currently operates an all-Airbus fleet comprised of 11 A320s and 22 A330s including five A330-200 freighter aircraft.

By the end of 2018, its fleet size will increase to 50 jets with the delivery of the first A350-900 aircraft.
