BA Celebrates 80 Years In Hong Kong With Special Fare

British Airways is celebrating 80 years of flying to Hong Kong with the launch of a special anniversary fare for customers. The maiden flight which took off on March 14, 1936 took ten days to complete, stopping at 24 different cities across the world and a one way ticket cost £175 – the equivalent of more than £11,000 in today’s money. In comparison, flights today take an average of 12 hours and to mark this milestone, until March 24, the airline is offering return World Traveller fares from London to Hong Kong for £500 for customers travelling in May. British Airways operates 14 direct flights a week between the two cities, with overnight services operated by the Boeing 777 and the ‘super jumbo,’ the Airbus A380. The 80-year anniversary underlines British Airways’ position as the longest standing European operator to Hong Kong. From March 30, British Airways First, Club World and World Traveller Plus customers will also be able to enjoy special celebration dishes on board all flights to Hong Kong.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
