Hong Kong Airlines will make its North American debut this month with the launch of a non-stop daily service between Vancouver (YVR) and Hong Kong International Airport (HKG).

The inaugural flight, which is scheduled to take place June 30th, will mark the airline’s official entry into the Canadian market.

To commemorate the occasion, Academy Award-winning Hollywood actor Jackie Chan will ride aboard the inaugural flight from Hong Kong to Vancouver, serving as a Hong Kong Airlines ambassador.

Hong Kong Airlines is Hong Kong’s second largest airline, serving more than 30 destinations in the Asia Pacific region.

Officials say Canadians will now have greater access to Asia’s World City and beyond with the new transpacific route.

“With nearly 400,000 Canadians traveling to Hong Kong each year, we are thrilled to be able to offer direct access to the world-class city that is Hong Kong,” George Liu, Chief Marketing Officer of Hong Kong Airlines, stated in a release.
