On Thursday (November 3, 2022), Hong Kong Airlines announced the resumption of services between Hong Kong and both Okinawa and Sapporo in Japan this week, following the relaxation of travel restrictions. Earlier this month, the airline launched a co-branded mask product in partnership with the biotech company RAZE, and in celebration of the restart of flights, each guest on the first flight to Okinawa received a RAZE Sanitizing Travel Kit. The specialized kit features a collection of distinctive products including four 3-Ply antibacterial masks, a sanitizing spray with refill set, and sanitizing wipes.
