Hong Kong Airlines (Hong Kong) on June 4 took delivery of Airbus A330-223 B-LND (msn 1042), its first A330.

The company celebrated becoming a new Airbus operator with a ceremony in Hong Kong to mark the delivery of its first A330-200. Featuring the carrier’s new two class long haul cabin product, the aircraft will be used to launch services to Europe at the end of this month, initially flying non-stop to Moscow.

The A330-200 is the first of 53 aircraft ordered by the airline from Airbus, comprising 23 A330s and 30 single aisle A320s. In addition to direct orders with Airbus, the airline also plans to operate two A330-200F freighters under a separate lease agreement.
