Hong Kong Airlines Ltd will enlarge its international network in 2016, when the carrier's tenth anniversary comes.

"We plan to add 10 new international destinations across the Asia Pacific region to Australia in the year," said Li Dianchun, chief commercial officer of Hong Kong Airlines.

Hong Kong Airlines also increased the frequency of its Tianjin-Hong Kong route from a daily flight to two flights each day from Saturday.

The Hong Kong-based carrier launched the route from Tianjin to Hong Kong on March 31, 2014 and the route performed very well, as the average load factor on the route arrived at over 90 percent in 2015, Li said.

"Tianjin is an important hub in North China with fast passenger growth and it is also possible for Hong Kong Airlines to add more frequent flights on the route in the future," he added.
