Commencing on May 28, 2016, Hong Kong Airlines, an internationally-acclaimed full-service airline, will be the only carrier providing direct twice-weekly flight service between Hong Kong and Kuching, Malaysia. The new service will be operated by an all-economy class Airbus A320 aircraft, further strengthening the airline’s network in Asia.
