HONG KONG-EUROPE FLIGHTS
 


Hong Kong to expand flights to Europe

More flights from Cathay Pacific, KLM-Air France seen ahead.

BY OUR AVIATION CORRESPONDENT
March 28, 2006

The Hong Kong government has signed a new air service agreement with three countries - France, Germany and Russia - enabling airlines of all these countries to increase flights to Hong Kong. The agreement will be immediately beneficial to airlines like Cathay Pacific Airways and Air France-KLM Group, and would also help in boosting cargo traffic.

Russia will let Hong Kong airlines operate more flights through its airspace. Hong Kong and Russia will almost double the number of flights, enabling airlines of both countries to operate up to 34 per week, spokeswoman for Economic Development and Labour Bureau Daisy Lo said.

Cathay Pacific and other Hong Kong airlines will increase the total number of flights to 230 a week, which will be operated through Russia's airspace, up from the present 100 services. Hong Kong and France will permit their airlines to operate 20 weekly flights between the two countries, an increase from the present 13.

The city has also agreed with Germany to increase the number of passenger and cargo flights by 25 per cent to 31 each week.
