Travel to Hong Kong was almost non-existent during the pandemic. While flights have been gradually returning, capacity will increase this month and into next year from Europe with both Lufthansa and Air France-KLM adding flights.

Lufthansa A350

Lufthansa will offer daily service from both Frankfurt am Main Airport (FRA) and Munich International Airport (MUC) starting in April 2024. The Frankfurt flights will be operated by Airbus A340-600 aircraft with 8 First Class, 44 Business Class, 32 Premium Economy, and 213 Economy seats. The Munich flights are on the Airbus A350-900. It offers 48 Business Class, 21 Premium Economy, and 224 Economy seats. The two daily departures restores Lufthansa’s service to pre-pandemic levels. While these flights will be back to what was offered before Covid, service to mainland China still hovers around 43% of capacity.

Air France KLM

Air France and KLM both increased frequencies to Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) with daily flights from Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) on an Airbus A350-900 with 48 Business Class, 32 Premium Economy, and 212 Economy Class seats. KLM will operate 4x weekly with a Boeing 777-300ER. It has 36 Business Class and 374 Economy Class seats.

Anthony’s Take: Hong Kong is one of my favorite cities in the world. It’s great to see air service returning to pre-pandemic levels.
