Cathay Pacific Airways announced that it will operate an additional flight to and from three destinations – Taipei, Bangkok and Singapore – tomorrow (24 September) to help those passengers whose flights were cancelled as a result of Typhoon Usagi. In addition, one flight to and from three destinations - Sydney, Tokyo Narita and Osaka - tomorrow will be operated by a bigger aircraft to accommodate more passengers.
The airline believes this extra capacity will help clear the backlog of passengers in Hong Kong following the cancellation of flights over the weekend.
