Following the launch of a daily service to Vancouver earlier this year, Hong Kong Airlines further increases its presence in the North America by commencing a new service to Los Angeles on December 18.

Los Angeles also becomes the carrier's first destination in the Continental United States, with San Francisco and New York to follow in 2018.

Hong Kong Airlines' new service is operated by the Airbus A350, which is equipped with various modern amenities designed to enhance the passenger experience. This includes inflight WiFi -- of which the first 15 minutes are available free to all passengers -- as well as a brand new inflight entertainment system, which boasts an expanded catalogue of over 100 entertainment content including the latest movies and TV programmes, as well as live broadcasts of CNN, BBC World News and Sport24.

The launch of the new flights also marks the introduction of the A350 in the US city. With three already delivered and a further 18 on order, the A350 is poised to become the backbone of Hong Kong Airlines' long-haul fleet.
