Hong Kong Airlines to offer inflight items for sale

Hong Kong Airlines is offering a range of ex-inflight items for sale, ranging from inflight crockery, limited edition amenity kits, pillows and duvets and wine.

The airline hopes the items will bring back fond memories for customers who enjoy flying with Hong Kong Airlines. Aviation fans may also score a collectible or two as most items for sale are no longer in production.

Commenting on the initiative, Hong Kong Airlines director of service delivery, Chris Birt, said it is a win-win for both the carrier and its customers given that the pandemic continues to impact travel plans and is keeping most people’s feet firmly on the ground.

“To prevent wastage and disposal of obsolete or surplus items we have in storage, we have decided to put them up for sale after seeing how favourably the public has responded to similar airline inflight product sales. These items can be used or consumed at home or over a picnic with family and friends.

“We also hope that they will bring back fond memories of past travels with Hong Kong Airlines and build excitement as we all wait patiently to step onboard again soon.”

Bespoke e-commerce platform Epix Products will be the sole channel for this exclusive sale commencing on Friday July 23 2021.

Items from Hong Kong Airlines will be put together in different bundles. For example, a half-size trolley will be fully packed with Business tableware, cutlery, locally designed amenity kits, blanket and pillow with cover plus 24 bottles of wine. A full-size trolley will include a greater quantity of the same items offered in the half-size trolley bundle with 36 bottles of wine. Depending on the product mix, the sale price for bundles will start from HK$1,788 for home sets and from HK$8,888 for a fully stocked half-size cart.
