At the start of 2021, Hong Kong Airlines will resume flights to Osaka, Japan and increase flight frequencies to Tokyo.
Starting January 2, Hong Kong Airlines will restart flights to Osaka-Kansai on a twice-weekly schedule (Thursday/Saturday).
In addition to the resumption of flights to Osaka, the airline will increase flights to Tokyo-Narita from once-weekly (Friday) with the addition of another departure on Sunday effective January 1.
The flights to Japan were suspended for nearly a year amid the COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing travel restrictions which limited travel between Hong Kong and the two most populated cities in Japan.
For both routes, Airbus A330 aircraft will be used to allow for the airline to ferry cargo from Hong Kong to the two cities in Japan.
