Airbus delivers 800th widebody aircraft to Air Hong Kong


All-freighter carrier Air Hong Kong has taken delivery of an A300-600F General Freighter aircraft  the 800th widebody aircraft to roll off the production line and the fifth to be delivered to the airline.

At a ceremony held in Toulouse to mark the occasion, José-Luis Tejedor, head of widebody programme, said that the A300-600F was regarded as the best aircraft in the medium-range freight market and that its high reputation was due to Airbus' innovation and flexibility in meeting customer needs.

Air Hong Kong placed its order for six widebody general freighters in January 2003, along with options on a further four. The airline has since exercised options for two of the four, which will be delivered in 2006. Currently, Air Hong Kong operates between Hong Kong and bases at Penang, Malaysia; Bangkok, Thailand; Taipei, Taiwan, and Kansai and Narita, Japan. Other customers for the new variant A300-600F General Freighter include UPS and Japan Air System.
