Hong Kong Airlines has taken delivery of its first A350-900, on lease from AerCap, making the carrier the 15th airline to operate the world’s newest and most efficient twin aisle airliner.

Altogether Hong Kong Airlines will acquire 21 Airbus A350 XWB, including 15 purchased directly from Airbus and six on lease from third party lessors.  

After an initial period flying on regional routes, Hong Kong Airlines' A350-900 will begin long haul operations in December this year, flying on the carrier's non-stop service to Los Angeles.
