Cathay Pacific Expands London to Hong Kong Service

Cathay Pacific Airways, a Hong Kong based airline operator, will be expanding the service between its Hong Kong hub and London Heathrow to add a new return flight.

The airline is adding its fifth daily return flight from Hong Kong from June 27, 2013, as part of its commitment to offer its passengers more choice in long-haul flights. The new London Heathrow flight will be operated with a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.

The airline chief executive officer, John Slosar, said, ‘We are offering our customers the best of all worlds: first, products that are second to none, including our new long-haul Business Class, winner of the Skytrax Best Business Class in the world award; second, people and service that have earned us recognition as a five-star airline. And third, the choice to travel when it is convenient with multiple frequencies throughout the day.

Whether getting passengers to their destinations on a nonstop 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 new flight will increase the current service to London to 35 flights per week. The airline is also offering 25 flights a week to New York City, and 17 to Los Angeles, from Hong Kong.

The airline has recently provided new business class interiors on some of its long distance flights, including on its route between London Heathrow and Hong Kong.
