Cathay Pacific adds flights in new winter schedule

18 Sep 2000


Cathay Pacific Airways today announced it would add 20 extra return flights a week during its new Winter Schedule, strengthening links between Hong Kong and seven regional cities. The additional flights are between Hong Kong and Cebu, Denpasar (Bali), Hanoi, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Surabaya, and Taipei. The new schedule will operate between 29 October and 24 March, and see an increase of 4% in Cathay Pacific's total seat capacity compared to the current Summer Schedule.

The new flights are being added in response to the continued recovery in demand from both passengers and cargo shippers around the region. Cathay Pacific will have extra capacity to operate the flights due to the addition of five new aircraft to its fleet between now and next March. The new aircraft include one Boeing 777-200, one Airbus Industrie A340-300, and three Airbus A330-300s.

Cathay Pacific's Director Corporate Planning Augustus Tang said: "We have seen a strong pick-up in demand around the region over the last year, and we will be using our new aircraft to add extra flights to those growing markets. These new services will also add further strength to the Hong Kong hub and enhance Hong Kong's position as Asia’s leading aviation centre."
