Commencing on 6 July 2016, Hong Kong Airlines will operate a twice-weekly direct flight between Hong Kong and Saipan International Airport.
An Airbus A330-300 aircraft with 292 seats, including 32 business class seats will be deployed on the route.
The Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) is a group of 14 islands in which Saipan is the largest one and its capital. Famed for its sunshine throughout the year and beautiful beaches with crystal clear water, Saipan is one of the best destinations for water sports lovers with many spectacular scuba diving sites.
Mr. Li Dianchun, Chief Commercial Officer of Hong Kong Airlines said:
“To welcome the amazing summer, we are delighted that Hong Kong Airlines is launching this Saipan service, offering even more choices to passengers traveling to tropical islands.
“Boosted with this new service, Hong Kong Airlines will continue to grow our route network in Asia Pacific region, providing more flexible travel options to passengers from around the world, and further strengthening Hong Kong’s position as one of the world’s major aviation hubs.”
