Aeroflot Increases Flights To HKG

Sat Aug 24, 2002 12:20 am

Hey all.

Just read this on the SCMP today. Aeroflot will be strengthning its presence in Hong Kong over the next few years.

Aeroflot is planning to add a once-weekly cargo flight to HKG in its winter schedule with the DC-10-30F. According to the general manager of Aeroflot Hong Kong, they might considering adding a 2nd weekly cargo flight if demand is strong enough.

Aeroflot is also going to increase its passenger flights from the current 4x weekly flight to a 5x per week service next May. They hope to go daily within two years' time.

The article mentions that Aeroflot currently operates a 777-200 on its HKG route, but I thought they only flew the 767 to HK? Have they recently switched aircraft?

This is great news!

Hkg82.

Great to hear Aeroflot is expanding! Well I am sure they could get a full load to HKG using the 777.
