Hong Kong Airlines signs MOU for 15 A350s and 10 more A330s
Carrier becomes latest customer for all-new A350 XWB
Farnborough, 20 July 2010

Hong Kong Airlines has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Airbus to acquire 15 A350 XWBs and 10 more A330-200s. Under the terms of the agreement, the airline is converting 15 existing A330 orders to A350 XWBs and placing an additional order for 10 A330-200s. The MOU was signed at the Farnborough International Airshow today.

Deliveries of the additional A330-200s will begin in 2012, with the first A350 XWB arriving in 2018. The aircraft will be operated across a long haul network currently being developed by the airline to link Hong Kong with a wide range of destinations in Europe and North America.

"Our latest commitment underscores our ambition to develop an extensive long haul network offering world class service," said Yang Jian Hong, President, Hong Kong Airlines. "The super-efficient A330-200 is the perfect platform for us to develop these services, while the A350 XWB will become our new flagship towards the end of this decade."

"We are extremely pleased that Hong Kong Airlines has reaffirmed its commitment to Airbus aircraft for its future long haul fleet," said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers. "With the A330 and the A350 XWB, the carrier will be operating the cleanest, most efficient aircraft available in the mid-size widebody market now and in the future."

Established in 2006, Hong Kong Airlines operates a full service Asian network to which it recently added its first long haul service to Europe. Upon confirmation of today's MOU, the carrier's widebody orders with Airbus will comprise 15 A350 XWBs and 18 A330s. The carrier also has 30 single aisle A320 aircraft on firm order for future delivery.

The A330 is one of the most widely used widebody aircraft in service today. To date, Airbus has won more than 1,000 orders for the various versions of the aircraft. More than 700 A330s have already been delivered and the aircraft is currently flying with over 80 airlines worldwide.

The A350 XWB Family is an all-new product line seating between 270 and 350 passengers in typical three-class layouts. Scheduled for first entry-into-service in 2013, it is already one of most successful aircraft programmes ever, with over 530 firm orders already received from 34 customers worldwide.

Well you have gotta see it from his (b737400) perspective. His pay in Malaysia is probably 1/3 of what the GREAT HKA will have to offer, and the A330 will be an upgrade to his present equipment. And most of all, I think he missed the most important key word of the thread title: DEMISED.
And btw, he's probably what HKA is looking for anyway, obedient and cheap labour.

Living in HK

Hi, everyone.

I have read most of the comments on this thread.

I still can not belive the environment that pilots are working at HKA.

Can someone tell me, as a F/O at HKA, can you be upgraded?

How is the living expenese in HK?

No upgrades, at least on 330 fleet. They won´t do it, because they need them as A330 F/O!!! So they will hire new captains (if they find) for a long time.

Impossible to find something decent with less than HK$12,000, and with that budget you will find just a box of matches.

I suspect Harlem is talking about housing for that sort of $$. Expect to pay at least $12k HK per month for a small 3 bedroom flat in Tung Chung. Anywhere closer to Central and the price goes up rapidly.

Of course I mean that. He asked for living expenses, and if he is thinking to join HKA, that is the maximun he is going to be able to pay . There is another live... but it is more expensive.
