EL AL enters into codeshare arrangement with Hong Kong Airlines E-mail

Furthering opportunities to increase passenger numbers on Asian routes, EL AL Israel Airlines and Hong Kong Airlines announced on 4 June that they have entered into a codeshare agreement.

Subject to government approval, the arrangement will open up significant opportunities for both carriers. Hong Kong Airlines routes include Auckland in New Zealand, Tokyo (Narita) and Osaka in Japan and Seoul in South Korea.

EL AL currently operates six weekly flights between Hong Kong and Tel Aviv with its brand-new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. Featuring a threeclass configuration, EL AL’s Boeing 787-9 offers 32 seats in Business Class and 28 in New Premium Economy Class.

As an added benefit, members of Hong Kong Airlines’ frequent flyer programme, Fortune Wings Club, can earn loyalty points when they travel on EL AL codeshare flights, similar to when they travel on Hong Kong Airlines-operated services.

The codeshare agreement will also enable EL AL to add destinations in New Zealand, Japan and Korea to its growing network around the globe, strengthening its presence in Asia Pacific. Customers of Israel’s flag carrier will now benefit from one-stop travel connections to Auckland, Tokyo (Narita), Osaka and Seoul via Hong Kong. Hong Kong Airlines currently serves Auckland five times weekly and offers multiple daily flights to the other popular Asian cities.
