HK Express’ first flight to Wuxi in China was celebrated on 10 April with a banner on the apron. The route is already served by China Eastern Airlines with daily flights.
- HK Express on 10 April introduced flights from its base at Hong Kong (HKG) to Wuxi (WUX) in China. The 1,207-kilometre route will be served four times weekly by the airline’s 174-seat A320s and will face direct competition from China Eastern Airlines’ daily flight. In 2013 Sunan Shuofang International Airport serving Wuxi handled 3.6 million passengers, making it China’s 42nd busiest airport. Luke Lovegrove, Commercial Director for HK Express, said: “HK Express is unfolding the map of China and offering fresh wonders to our guests almost every month. Wuxi’s natural scenery and historical attractions have been gaining popularity among independent travellers and we are delighted to bring this great destination within easy low-fare reach of Hong Kong. I look forward to announcing more soon as we continue to expand our fleet.” Read more about the rise of HK Express and its network here.
