Cathay Pacific announces temporary flight reductions
19 Oct 2001
Cathay Pacific Airways will temporarily reduce flight frequencies to five destinations as part of its ongoing review of its network. The changes take effect from 22 October. The reduction of 14 flights per week represents approximately 3% of the total weekly schedule. The affected destinations are Bangkok, Denpasar, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, and Los Angeles.
These schedule reductions are in addition to the roughly 4% schedule reduction announced last week.
The airline remains focused on maintaining a comprehensive schedule for its passengers. The suspended flights will be reinstated during peak travel periods to meet any additional demand at those times.
Details of the additional flights to be suspended are as follows:
Destinations from Hong Kong
Temporary suspensions per week
Remaining services per week
|Kuala Lumpur|| |
|Los Angeles|| |
The updated schedule is available on the airline's Website - www.cathaypacific.com
. Passengers on the affected services are being contacted by our reservations team to arrange alternative flights.
Cathay Pacific Director Corporate Development Tony Tyler said: "We regret that with current passenger traffic we have had to trim temporarily the frequency of flights to a number of destinations. However we are committed to offering passengers a comprehensive network, so we are still flying to all of these destinations at least daily - and in the case of Bangkok four times daily. We will operate extra flights during peak periods, and will reinstate all of these flights whenever circumstances permit."
