Hong Kong-based low-cost carrier HK Express (UO) will take delivery of six new Airbus aircraft in the second half of next year, including four 188-seat A320neo and two 230-seat A321 aircraft.

The Hong Kong-based airline has 12 A320neos on order and will take delivery of the first four in the second half of 2016, with another four pending delivery each year. Deliveries will be completed in 2018.

"Investing in the A320neo is one of the most important things we can do for our valued guests, the environment and the business itself," said CEO Andrew Cowen in a press conference. "We are actively looking for more opportunities to expand our fleet and grow our network to keep up with market demand."

Meanwhile, HK Express will also receive two new A321 aircraft, which will be the first in North Asia to have a 230-seat configuration.

HK Express will have 13 aircraft in its fleet by the end of 2015, which will expand to 19-23 by December 2016.

HK Express reported a year-on-year increase of 83 percent in passenger volume for the third quarter this year. In September, the passenger load factor reached 83.5 percent on average, setting a new record in the two-year history of the low-cost carrier, stated Andrew Cowen.

According to a press statement, HK Express welcomed its 3 millionth passenger on Oct. 4, after just two years of operation as a low-cost airline.

A set of new uniforms for flight attendants are unveiled in the event. It is learnt that the new purple uniforms are designed together with its sister carrier Hong Kong Airlines.

In addition, to celebrate its 2nd anniversary on Oct. 27, the Hong Kong-based carrier is now launching a special airfare campaign "Our Birthday, Your Gifts" to provide luck passengers with super-low tickets starting from HK$22.
