As the only Low-Cost Carrier (LCC) in Hong Kong, HK Express offers affordable fares and exceptional operational efficiency without cutting corners. We focus on short-haul services and have over 90% load factor, in other words, we carry more passengers and cargo with the same amount of fuel.
HK Express currently operates a fleet of 27 Airbus aircraft, which are 5 years old on average to improve environmental performance and lower carbon intensity. Among them, 10 are state-of-the-art A320-neo delivering many environmental benefits: lower fuel burn, fewer emissions, quieter engines, and a longer flight range.
In 2020, we started to monitor our CO2 emission status and complied with CORSIA and an independent external auditor to demonstrate our readiness and willingness to voluntarily achieve net-zero by 2050.
HK Express takes its responsibility to the environment seriously. To contribute more sustainable air travel and footprint reduction, we fully offset carbon emissions from our flycation flights via Cathay Pacific Group’s Fly Greener Programme. Fly Greener aims to counterbalance emissions from air travel by purchasing “carbon offsets” from third-party validated projects that reduce or prevent CO2 emissions. For more details, click here .
HK Express is continuing to support communities in need, provide equal opportunities and take care of our employees. We have carried out many campaigns over the years, from donating PPE equipment during the pandemic to serving hot meals to senior citizens in Hong Kong, teaching underprivileged children in Yunnan and providing barrier-free flight experiences.
