Cathay Pacific Increases Flights to Key Destinations

Cathay Pacific is to increase the frequency of services to some of its most popular destinations.

 The enhanced schedules apply to San Francisco, Brisbane, Manchester, Paris and Madrid.

As part of a redeployment of resources in response to strong demand, San Francisco will be served three times a day following the addition of four flights to its weekly schedule from the end of October 2017.

Cathay Pacific Airbus A350

This new daily service will be operated with Airbus A350, making the West Coast city the first destination in the US to welcome Cathay Pacific’s most technologically-advanced aircraft.

At the same time, flights to Los Angeles will be reduced from 28 to 21 per week.

 These changes come on top of previously announced additional services that will operate to Vancouver and Boston from late March.

Australia

During the southern hemisphere’s peak summer period from late October to March, the airline will replace its current four-times weekly one-stop service to Brisbane via Cairns with direct flights to both cities.

 The switch means that Queensland’s capital will receive 11 non-stop flights from Hong Kong each week, while Cairns will be served non-stop three times a week.

In addition to the new non-stop services, Brisbane’s existing daily flight will be served by the A350 from 26 March.

 Cathay Pacific also recently announced that from late October, it will increase capacity on its four-times daily Sydney route by operating a third flight with the Boeing 777-300ER.

Europe

Cathay Pacific has expanded its European network considerably in recent times and the region is set to become better connected than ever before with frequency increases to France, Spain and the United Kingdom.

Madrid will see an increase from four to five flights per week from late October, while a sixth weekly flight will operate to Manchester from early December. At the same time, Paris will see the resumption of an 11th weekly service.

Paul Loo, Cathay Pacific Director Corporate Development & IT, said, “Our network enhancements are designed to improve our customers’ experience through greater choice and added convenience. Increasing frequencies to these popular Cathay Pacific destinations strengthens our ability to connect our passengers with all corners of the world in addition to growing our home hub of Hong Kong.”

Cathay Pacific currently operates 108 weekly flights to North America, 93 weekly flights to Europe and 75 weekly flights to Australia. The airline will launch a new four times weekly service to Tel Aviv on 26 March and introduce new seasonal services to both Barcelona (summer) and Christchurch (winter) later this year.
