From November 2010, Cathay Pacific will increase
capacity on routes to Sydney, Perth, Brisbane, Cairns, Auckland,
Toronto and Osaka. For its service between Hong Kong and Paris,
the airline aims to gradually increase the number of flights to 11
per week by December.
The changes, detailed below, are in response to
increasing and continued strong demand.
Cathay Pacific Chief Executive Tony Tyler said,
“We aim to increase overall passenger capacity by about 4% for the
Cathay Pacific Group, returning to 2008 pre-financial crisis
levels. The increased frequencies will offer passengers greater
choice and further strengthen connections through Hong Kong.
Together with our new Milan and Moscow services, launched
respectively in March and July this year, these service
enhancements will certainly boost Hong Kong’s position as one of
the world’s leading aviation hubs.”
