Cathay Pacific Airways today announced the addition of a sixth daily flight between Hong Kong and Manila.
The new service from Hong Kong, starting on 1 January 2003, will plug gaps in the airline`s current schedule to the Philippines and provide more convenient onward connections throughout the day at Cathay Pacific`s Hong Kong hub.
The evening departure from Hong Kong of flight CX913 and the breakfast-time turnaround of CX912 from Manila, starting on 2 January 2003, will also offer added convenience to business travellers.
In addition to Manila, Cathay Pacific operates a daily service to the island of Cebu.
Cathay Pacific Director Airline Planning Augustus Tang said: “Manila remains one of Cathay Pacific`s busiest regional routes. The addition of a sixth daily flight will provide the capacity needed to meet the demand we are seeing from passengers wishing to travel to Hong Kong and connect with flights across Cathay Pacific`s network.”
Cathay Pacific serves about 60 destinations in Asia, North America, Europe, Australasia and Africa. Through the eight-carrier oneworld alliance, Cathay Pacific can connect passengers to more than 550 destinations in 135 countries and territories.
