Cathay Pacific is to launch scheduled services between Hong Kong and Milan on 28 March 2010. The new four-times-weekly service will be operated by a Boeing 777-300ER featuring Cathay Pacifics acclaimed three-class inflight product.

Cathay Pacific began flying to Italy in April 1986 when it launched a service to the capital city, Rome. The airline currently operates a daily passenger service to Rome and a six-times-weekly freighter service to Milan, and will offer a total of 11 passenger flights to and from Italy each week when Milan launches as a passenger destination. The city will become the 47th online destination in Cathay Pacifics passenger network.

Cathay Pacific Chief Executive Tony Tyler said, "We are very excited to launch a new service to this dynamic city, and we expect it to help Milan to develop quickly as a prime destination for business and leisure travellers from this part of the world. This is the only direct service between these two major commercial cities and our strong network will enable us to offer great connections for travellers from northern Italy through the superb Hong Kong hub.

In addition to the launch of the Milan service, Cathay Pacific will also be further strengthening its services to and from North America. From 28 March, three flights a week will be added to the existing daily service to Toronto. The additional services will depart Hong Kong at 02.45 every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday while the existing daily flights will depart at 16.10 from Hong Kong.

The airline is also adding three flights per week to Los Angeles from 1 May, increasing the frequency to 17 each week. The extra flights will depart Hong Kong at 13.10 every Monday, Thursday and Saturday.

In addition, with effect from 28 March, one of the two daily flights to San Francisco will be retimed to depart at 23.55 from Hong Kong, giving passengers a choice of daytime or nighttime departures.
