Cathay Pacific boosts London-Hong Kong flights

Cathay Pacific Airways is celebrating the launch of its fifth daily return flight between London Heathrow and its Hong Kong hub.

Making its debut today, the additional flight further demonstrates Cathay’s commitment to serve key long-haul markets around the globe with multiple frequencies offering maximum customer choice.

Cathay Pacific chief executive John Slosar said: “We are offering our customers the best of all worlds, including products that are second to none, and the choice to travel when it is convenient with multiple frequencies throughout the day.”

The additional daily return flight means that there will now be 35 flights a week between London and Hong Kong.

Offering customers added flexibility and convenience when travelling to Hong Kong and beyond into the Far East and Australasia, this is just one of the many latest developments for the airline.

It has also added frequencies on routes from Hong Kong to India, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Vietnam.

Through its sister airline Dragonair, it has also added new routes into mainland China, as well as Da Nang in Vietnam and Yangon in Myanmar to name just a few. 

Slosar added: “Whether getting passengers to their destinations on a non-stop flight or connections via our convenient, world renowned hub in Hong Kong, we are working to expand the network in a way that brings additional flight options to our customers.  It is just another way we are giving passengers more reasons to choose Cathay Pacific.”

The upcoming fifth London Heathrow frequency will be operated with a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
