Hong Kong Airlines adds two new services to Gold Coast
Major Events Minister Kate Jones said the additional flights were secured through the Palaszczuk Government’s Attracting Aviation Investment Fund.
“These extra flights came about through our partnership with Gold Coast Tourism, Cairns Airport, Tourism Tropical North Queensland and Gold Coast Airport,” she said.
“We know that increasing our airline capacity is key to growing tourism to Queensland.
“We will continue to work with Tourism and Events Queensland, international airlines, regional tourism organisations and major airports to secure more international flights.”
Gold Coast Tourism CEO Martin Winter said it showed further evidence of the importance of air access from China to the Gold Coast, with a 33 per cent growth in the China market in the past 12 months and a 66 per cent growth from Hong Kong.
