Hong Kong Airlines recently announced that it will change its seasonal flights from the city to the Gold Coast and Cairns in Australia into year-round ones.

The company launched the seasonal flights this January to attract Chinese visitors to explore Australia.

But under its new plans it will have two year-round flights per week from early April and then push them up to three per week from July.

Li Dianchun, chief commercial officer of Hong Kong Airlines says the service will further enhance cultural, tourism and business exchanges between China, Asia and Australia.

According to Tourism and Events Queensland, visitors from the mainland, Hong Kong and Taiwan, spent almost $1.2 billion in Queensland in the year to September 2015.
