On November 2, Hong Kong Airlines (HX), celebrated its resumption of flights to and from Okinawa's Naha Airport (OKA). Okinawa will become the airline's third destination in the country of almost 126 million since it abolished its strict border policy in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Resumption to Sapporo is also set to take off from Hong Kong on November 4.
Both destinations are set to be operated thrice weekly for the month of November, where Sapporo will increase to daily operations from December 1st, and Okinawa to a daily schedule from December 15. Vice President at Hong Kong Airlines commented:
“We are excited to resume direct flights to both Okinawa and Sapporo, adding these charming ports to our recovering network and providing more travel options for our customers. With the expected growth in travel demands, we are looking to increase more flights to both cities and other destinations we fly to.”
