Cathay Pacific to begin services to Manchester in December

10 Apr 2014

Cathay Pacific Airways today announced that it will launch a four-times-weekly service to Manchester in the UK with effect from 8 December 2014 (subject to government approval). Tickets for the service are open for sale today.

Located in north-west England, Manchester is a regional transport and business hub that is renowned for its architecture, culture, industrial heritage and sports clubs. Manchester International Airport is ranked third in the UK, after Heathrow and Gatwick, in terms of passenger throughput and has high potential for further growth.

The Manchester service will be operated by Boeing 777-300ER aircraft featuring Cathay Pacific’s acclaimed new cabin products, including the awarding-winning Business Class, Premium Economy Class and the new Economy Class seats. Together with the premium service provided by Cathay Pacific’s cabin crew and a state-of-the-art inflight entertainment system in all classes, passengers will be provided with the best experience when they travel between Hong Kong and Manchester.

Flights will depart from Hong Kong to Manchester every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Departures from Manchester are also on these days.

Cathay Pacific Chief Executive Ivan Chu said: "We have a deep commitment to the UK market and currently operate five flights a day to London Heathrow. Business ties between the UK and Hong Kong are very strong and we have been seeing an ever-increasing demand for air travel to and from the Asia Pacific region for both business and leisure traffic.

“By providing yet more flights to the UK, and the only non-stop direct service between Hong Kong and Manchester, Cathay Pacific will offer passengers even more choice and flexibility and, at the same time, continue to boost Hong Kong’s standing as an international aviation hub.”

The flight schedule for Cathay Pacific's Manchester (MAN) service, effective 8 December 2014, is as follows (all times local):
