Cathay Pacific to increase Milan flights to daily, capacity boost on other routes

15 Feb 2011



Cathay Pacific Airways today announced that, subject to government approval, it will increase the frequency of its Milan service from four flights a week to daily from 1 July 2011 in response to strong demand. The airline is also increasing capacity on a number of other routes including Paris, Jakarta, Surabaya, Bangkok and Delhi.

Cathay Pacific Chief Executive Tony Tyler said: “Demand to and from Milan has been very encouraging since we launched the route in March last year and we are pleased to be able to strengthen the service and offer more choice to our passengers. We are also taking the opportunity to add capacity on a number of other routes that will further boost connectivity through Hong Kong, one of the world’s leading international aviation hubs.”

From 27 March, the airline will add three extra flights to Paris making a twice daily service to the French capital. The additional flights will operate via Amsterdam. Surabaya will become a daily service with the addition of one more flight a week. Three additional flights to Jakarta will also be added effective 15 August.

Services to and from Malaysia will also be enhanced with three Penang flights that currently go via Kuala Lumpur becoming direct flights from 27 March. In addition, the airline will employ larger aircraft on the Bangkok-Delhi services from Hong Kong.
