Cathay Pacific Three Times to London

Cathay Pacific Airways today announced that it will from June 2003 operate three non-stop flights each day between Hong Kong and London Heathrow - more than any other airline.

Three flights every day will provide customers with more choice of afternoon and evening departure times to and from London and easier connections in Hong Kong to more Cathay Pacific destinations in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Southeast Asia, New Zealand and Australia.

Cathay Pacific already operates 18 non-stop flights to London each week. June`s three additional departures to London Heathrow will depart Hong Kong in the afternoon.

Cathay Pacific Director Corporate Planning Augustus Tang said: “Cathay Pacific upgrading our service to three flights every day demonstrates our commitment to better serving our customers. More flights will provide easier access to Hong Kong and our network beyond. The completion in 2003 of our programme to install our New Business Class in all long-haul aircraft also means that more people will be able to enjoy our award-winning service in even greater comfort.”
