Hong Kong Express Airways has launched its newest scheduled service to Okinawa in Japan. The first of five routes that the airline will launch between Hong Kong and Japan in April and May, flights to Okinawa will initially operate twice weekly, increasing to four per week from April 28.
“We have been operating chartered flights between Hong Kong and Japan for a long time. We are very pleased that we are now able to operate on a scheduled basis,” said Ronnie Choi, President of Hong Kong Express Airways.
He said the flight is only the first step in penetrating the Japanese market with further route launches in the pipeline. These will connect Hong Kong with Hiroshima, Kagoshima, Nagoya and Okayama.
The airline has also already established its first office in the country in Okinawa.
