Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 31 March 2011

Cathay Pacific is adjusting its flights to and from Japan in response to weakening passenger demand. The following flights will be suspended temporarily for two weeks from 1 to 15 April:

CX520 Hong Kong-Narita (daily)
CX524 Hong Kong-Narita (daily)
CX542 Hong Kong-Haneda (daily)
CX501 Narita-Hong Kong (daily)
CX521 Narita-Hong Kong (daily)
CX567 Osaka-Hong Kong (daily)
Nagoya (3-14 April)
CX536 Hong Kong-Nagoya (three flights weekly)
CX535 Nagoya-Hong Kong (three flights weekly)

At present, Cathay Pacific operates seven daily services to and from Tokyo. After the planned suspension of the above flights, the airline will operate four daily flights from Hong Kong to Tokyo and five daily flights from Tokyo; four daily flights to Osaka and three daily services from Osaka; and two flights daily to and from Nagoya. Flights to Fukuoka and Sapporo are not affected.

Cathay Pacific General Manager Revenue Management, Tom Owen, said, We are monitoring the demand situation to and from Tokyo and other Japanese points closely and will make adjustments based on anticipated demand levels going forward. It is too early to say however how long this situation will last and how quickly business will return to normal. At the moment we expect several months of weakness with a recovery towards the summer but there are still a lot of variables out there that might alter this view going forward.

Travellers are advised to check the airlines website for the latest flight schedule to and from Japan.
