Hong Kong Airlines recently celebrated the first anniversary of its Vancouver-Hong Kong service by partnering with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, British Columbia & Yukon chapter.
The airline donated 10 round-trip Economy Class tickets to eligible children represented by the charity.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation is a non-profit organization that grants life-changing wishes to children suffering from critical illnesses. Since its establishment in 1980, the organization – through the help of donors and volunteers – has granted approximately nearly 450,000 wishes worldwide.
Hong Kong Airlines’ Vancouver service has proven to be a popular choice for Canadians and the airline is therefore looking to strengthen its commitment and reaffirm its ongoing involvement with the local community.
George Liu, chief marketing officer of Hong Kong Airlines, said, “Hong Kong Airlines’ partnership with the Make-A-Wish Foundation reaffirms our commitment to the Canadian market, as we celebrate the first anniversary of our Vancouver-Hong Kong service. We are delighted to contribute to the local community, in what we believe to be a very meaningful cause and help make the travel wishes of children come true.”
