Hong Kong Airlines has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Airbus for six A330-200 aircraft. The latest commitment will increase the number of A330s ordered by the airline to 23. Hong Kong Airlines said it intends to use the A330-200s to develop new services to destinations across the Asia- Pacific region, as well as to the Middle East and Europe.

“The A330-200 offers the perfect range and size capability to enable us to expand into new medium and long haul markets,” said Hong Kong Airlines president, Yang Jian Hong.
