Cathay Pacific to increase Toronto service to double daily for peak season

16 Jan 2017

Airline boosts frequency to Canada’s most populous city from 24 June

Cathay Pacific announced today that it will increase the frequency of its service to Toronto with the addition of four weekly flights commencing 24 June 2017, underscoring the importance of the airline’s position in the North American market.

The announcement, which will see Cathay Pacific operate a twice-daily non-stop service from Hong Kong to Canada’s most populous city, will provide passengers with greater travel options and improved connectivity.

The airline also recently announced a codeshare agreement with Air Canada, enabling Cathay Pacific passengers to book domestic flights on Canada’s national carrier to major cities across the country.

In total, Cathay Pacific operates 108 scheduled passenger flights to North America weekly, including 24 flights per week to Toronto and Vancouver in Canada and 84 flights per week to Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City (JFK and Newark) and San Francisco in the United States.

Since launching flights to Toronto in June 1994, Cathay Pacific has seen growing demand to and from the city, especially during the peak holiday period. In line with the current 10-times-weekly service, the additional flights will be operated by Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.

The extra services, which will continue until 4 September, will depart from Hong Kong at 1035, arriving in Toronto at 1355 local time the same day; return flights depart Toronto in the afternoon, arriving in Hong Kong the following evening.

In addition to Toronto, Cathay Pacific currently flies twice-daily flights to Vancouver from its Hong Kong hub, but will increase this service to 17 flights a week from 28 March.

Details of the new double daily Toronto service effective 24 June to 4 September 2017 are as follows (all times local):
