14 Mar 2011
Cathay Pacific Airways has extended the special one-way economy class fare of HK$5,755 to include all seven airports in six Japanese cities that Cathay Pacific and Dragonair operate – Narita and Haneda in Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Sapporo, Fukuoka and Okinawa.
This special fare arrangement, introduced Saturday (12 March) afternoon, will be available for sale and travel until 20 March and is designed to help those without any confirmed bookings who want to fly back to Hong Kong as soon as possible. For bookings please contact local Cathay Pacific offices or refer to www.cathaypacific.com.
Cathay Pacific has also updated its special ticketing guidelines to waive rebooking and rerouting charges for all tickets issued worldwide on or before 11 March for travel on Cathay Pacific involving Narita and Haneda in Tokyo, Osaka, Fukuoka, Nagoya, Sapporo and Okinawa between 11 March and 30 June 2011.
Rerouting is also available to 15 airports in 14 cities, including Hongqiao and Pudong in Shanghai, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Changsha and Wuhan in the Mainland; Bangkok, Phuket, Kota Kinabalu, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore in Southeast Asia; and Seoul, Busan, Taipei and Kaohsiung in Northeast Asia.
Requests for rerouting must be made on or before 31 March. Revised travel date must be on or before 30 June 2011.
A Cathay Pacific spokesperson said: “We understand that a small number of individual passengers have bought tickets at the full published fare from 12 March 2011, and we will refund to them the fare difference between the full published fare and this special repatriation fare. They should also contact our reservations staff in Hong Kong on +852 2747-1888.
“Our priority is to help bring people back to Hong Kong. As soon as the airports in Tokyo resumed operation on Saturday, we have been doing everything possible to resume flights services and to introduce this special fare to help people return to Hong Kong as soon as possible.
“We will closely monitor the situation and deploy our resources to meet the needs of passengers to and from Japan.”
