Hong Kong - (AIRPORT AUTHORITY HONG KONG) - The Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA) welcomes the new Air Services Agreement signed today between the HKSAR Government and the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia. The new Agreement will facilitate Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) to further expand its air network which connects Hong Kong with more than 140 destinations worldwide.
Dr David J Pang, AA's Chief Executive Officer, greatly appreciates Government's persistent and relentless efforts in establishing air services agreements with an increasing number of countries. He adds, "Such agreements play an indispensable role in helping HKIA operate as a leading regional and international aviation hub."
At present, airlines operating from HKIA can reach the African cities of Johannesburg, Nairobi, Addis Ababa and Mauritius, offering the most extensive aviation network for Africa in the Pearl River Delta (PRD) region. The new services agreement will not only promote flows of people and goods between Hong Kong and the African continent, but also strengthen the connection among Africa, Hong Kong and the PRD.
Currently, Ethiopian Airlines operates three weekly passenger flights between Hong Kong and the capital city of Ethiopia - Addis Ababa.
