Hong Kong Airlines are happy to announce that they will now be selling business class tickets to London via the Gatwick Airport which is often touted as being a bit more convenient to business travelers than the over-sized Heathrow. These business flights will begin in March and will seat 116 passengers. They will also offer two levels of business class flights – Club Classic and Club Premier. As per the airlines, the goal is that whichever level you choose the “Club Class” aircraft will afford passengers both an exceptional ratio of crew to passengers and an almost 'private jet ambiance'. Regardless of which Club Class you select, both offer an in-flight bar and wireless internet.
Gatwick Airport offers a little more convenience to those taking business class flights to London. Not only is it closer to London, but it also is home to carriers offering incoming and outgoing business class flights at more reasonable costs. The arrivals lounge at Softel is also often mentioned as one of the nicest, offering up workstations, a very relaxing lounge area with fireplace and the ability to catch a quick shower and have your business clothes pressed between flights. A smaller airport, Gatwick is very much worth your attention if you're flying into London on business.
