New video showcases world’s best airport experience
30 Sep 2005
(30 September 2005, Friday)Starting October 1, passengers flying to Hong Kong will appreciate what the world’s best airport has to offer when they watch a brand new in-flight video in their personal televisions on Cathay Pacific’s flights.
The 60-second video, which forms part of the Hong Kong International Airport’s “World’s Best under One Roof” campaign, will be aired on the arrival flights of Cathay Pacific as well as the infotainment screens at the Passenger Terminal Building until March 2006. It is jointly presented by the Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA) and Cathay Pacific Airways, voted as the World’s Best Airport and the World’s Best Airline respectively in the 2005 Skytrax survey.
Featuring Hong Kong’s celebrities, Leon Lai, Michelle Reis, Twins and Kenny Kwan, the video will take passengers through a pleasant and memorable journey at HKIA, a place where travellers always come first. Courtesy and helpfulness of airport staff, the airport’s comfortable and pleasant ambience, its high efficiency and ease of access to and from the airport are among what HKIA travellers like the most.
A selection of the major awards won by HKIA and its business partners over the years will also be on display at the Customer Service Counter on the departure level from early October.
AA's Chief Executive Officer, Dr David J Pang, said, “We are most grateful to millions of travellers around the world who have voted our airport the world’s best. Working at the World’s Best Airport, our 55,000 people are committed to creating a memorable airport experience for each and every passenger flying into or out of Hong Kong day and night, all year round.”
Cathay Pacific's Chief Executive Philip Chen said: "Hong Kong being home to both Cathay Pacific, Airline of the Year 2005, and the World's Best Airport is a unique achievement and tremendous opportunity to strengthen the city's hub and gateway position. We will continue to work in close partnership with the airport to promote our services to travellers the world over."
Early this month, AA has joined hands with airline partners to organise an on-line lucky draw, with both airlines giving away a total of six economy class round-trip tickets from Hong Kong to anywhere they fly.
