Cathay Pacific to Launch Flights to Moscow

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 11 February 2010

Cathay Pacific is in the process of applying to the relevant authorities so it can launch flights between Hong Kong and Moscow, capital of the Russian Federation.

Moscow has been on our radar screen for some time now. This planned addition to our network underlines Cathay Pacifics commitment to develop new markets, and our ongoing work to strengthen Hong Kong as one of the worlds leading international aviation hubs, said Cathay Pacific Chief Executive, Tony Tyler. Travel demand between the two cities is showing substantial growth thanks in no small part to the visa-free access enjoyed by passport holders of the HKSAR and the Russian Federation.

Subject to regulatory approval, Cathay Pacific plans to operate a thrice-weekly service to Moscow with Airbus A340-300 aircraft in a two-class configuration featuring Cathay Pacifics acclaimed long-haul Business Class product. The intended new service is planned to begin this summer.

Cathay Pacific currently has a codeshare arrangement with the Russian national carrier Aeroflot on the Hong Kong-Moscow route.
