The Colonial Fleet Arrives in Victoria Harbour

HONG KONG -- Through a merger with Canton Pacific Airways that became effective on January 1, 2005, the British Overpriced Airways Corporation has today established a base in Hong Kong and obtained Fifth Freedom operating rights from the Government of Hong Kong SAR. Accordingly, The Colonial Fleet of BOAC arrived in Hong Kong today and performed a fly-over of Victoria Harbour, spearheaded by the airline's former flagship, the Concorde supersonic jet G-BOAC, which once operated a London-to-Hong Kong service and was recalled from retirement to commemorate this momentous occasion.

Aside from the symbolic Concorde, the long-term Colonial Fleet comprises twenty Airbus 320/321 "Clippers," fourteen Boeing 777 "Cruisers," and fourteen Boeing 747 freighter "Cargomasters."

BOAC Chairman Sir Giles Guthrie told the local media: "We are proud to establish Hong Kong as BOAC's first oveseas base, and the natural next step in BOAC's mission to connect the current and former British Empire. We hope to use our new hub in Hong Kong as a template for future hubs throughout the Commonwealth, such as Sydney, Auckland, and/or Vancouver." Sir Guthrie added that BOAC have no intention of disrupting the existing passenger and cargo services provided by local airlines: "Following the long tradition of British colonialism, we seek to improve, not impair, the ecosystem in which we settle." For example, he stated, BOAC intend to focus on servicing as-yet-unserved cargo demand between Hong Kong and Japan, as well as to use Boeing 777-200LR "Super Cruisers" to provide non-stop service to New York later this year, thereby establishing a first-in-kind, round-the-world "financial centre" service along the London - Hong Kong - New York - London route, expected to be popular among both business travelers and tourists. "The sun never sets on the British Empire, and BOAC's mission reflects that," Sir Guthrie explained.
