Hong Kong Airlines cuts London route

Hong Kong Airlines has announced that it will end its service between Hong Kong and London on September 10. The airline cited poor demand for the service, which operates uses three 330-200 planes with business class-only seats.
Meanwhile, the airline has downplayed the impact of an unprecedented aviation authority ban on further expansion until it meets all safety requirements for operating a larger fleet.
“With a very rapid expansion of HKA’s aircraft fleet in recent years, the CAD considered that it was time for HKA to catch up with its current fleet size by consolidating their existing operations,” a CAD spokeswoman told AFP.
“The air operator’s certificate variation does not affect HKA’s operations of its current aircraft fleet and types,” the spokeswoman said, adding that the flight safety of HKA’s operations “has not been compromised”.
