Cathay Pacific expands Europe connections for summer 2018

Cathay Pacific continues to grow Hong Kong’s connections to the world.

From summer 2018, the airline will launch pioneering non-stop routes linking Hong Kong with Brussels, Dublin and Copenhagen, further strengthening the airline’s network and providing new trade and tourism opportunities between Asia and Europe.

Cathay Pacific chief executive, Rupert Hogg, said that the announced services will meet customer demand for non-stop travel to these vibrant cities, while at the same time providing Europe-based passengers with more convenient access to key destinations in Asia and south-west Pacific through the airline’s home in Hong Kong.

He added: “We’re excited to offer the only direct flights between Hong Kong and Brussels, Dublin and Copenhagen.

“These are all fantastic destinations and attract business and leisure travellers from the world over.

“We listened to our customers’ demands for more options and greater flexibility and have responded by building direct air links with these great cities.”

Following the recent launch of services to Gatwick, Madrid and Barcelona, Cathay Pacific’s European expansion continues.

With the commencement of the new routes, the airline’s network will cover 15 European destinations served direct from Hong Kong.

James Ginns, Cathay Pacific regional general manager, Europe, added: “These three fantastic additions to our ever-expanding European network are as a result of our response to growing customer demand for more travel choices and greater flexibility.

“European-based business and leisure travellers will now be able to enjoy an even more seamless connection via Hong Kong to other key destinations in Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

“The vibrant cites of Brussels, Dublin, and Copenhagen enable Cathay Pacific to tap into some of the largest unserved markets between Europe and Hong Kong.

“No doubt these new destinations will attract customers from the world over, who will soon be able to experience Cathay Pacific’s signature heartfelt service on-board our state-of-the-art A350 aircraft.”
