Cathay Pacific is offering senior citizens in Hong Kong and Macau a special 25% discount on Economy Class and Business Class tickets to a number of popular destinations in celebration of Senior Citizens’ Day on 16 November.

This is the ninth consecutive year for the airline to offer the special discount. Last year the oldest person to take advantage of the promotion was a 93-year-old who flew to Manila to catch up with friends.

The senior citizens’ discount is open to all Hong Kong and Macau residents aged 65 or over, enabling them to buy Economy Class and Business Class tickets from Hong Kong to selected Cathay Pacific destinations at a discount of 25% on published or market fares. Tickets must be issued between 7 and 21 November 2008 for travel between 7 November 2008 and 31 March 2009. Blackout periods apply over the Christmas and Chinese New Year periods.

The 2008 promotion includes many of Cathay Pacific’s most popular regional destinations, including Taipei, Singapore, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, and Cebu, as well as a number of long-haul destinations in the United States, Europe and Australia. All journeys must begin in Hong Kong.

Cathay Pacific General Manager Sales PRD & Hong Kong James Tong said, “We are delighted to be able to run this popular promotion once again, giving elderly people in Hong Kong and Macau the chance to visit family and friends overseas, explore their favourite cities or try new destinations for the first time. The elderly have given a lot to Hong Kong, and as Hong Kong’s home airline we are pleased to be able to give something back in return.”
