Cathay Pacific to reinstate more capacity in response to increasing demand

09 Aug 2010


Cathay Pacific Airways today announced it will add more flights to Australia, New Zealand, Canada, France and Japan as part of the airline’s plan to reinstate more passenger capacity in line with continued strong demand.

 

Cathay Pacific Chief Executive Tony Tyler said: “We aim to increase overall passenger capacity by about 4 per cent for the Cathay Pacific Group, returning to 2008 pre-financial crisis levels. The increased frequencies will offer passengers greater choice and further strengthen connections through Hong Kong. Together with our new Milan and Moscow services, launched respectively in March and July this year, these service enhancements will certainly boost Hong Kong’s position as one of the world’s leading aviation hubs.”

 

From November, flights are being added on routes to Sydney, Perth, Brisbane, Cairns, Auckland, Toronto and Osaka. For its service between Hong Kong and Paris, the airline aims to gradually increase the number of flights to 11 per week by December.   Full flight details are as follows:

 

Paris (PAR)

- Ten flights per week until 30 September, then back to daily; 9 flights per week from 27 November to 10 December; 11 flights per week effective 11 December 2010
