Cathay Pacific offers Europe fares as low as HK$5,600
21 Feb 2001
Cathay Pacific Airways today announced a set of substantial fare discounts for flights between Hong Kong and Europe with Economy Class fares as low as HK$5,600. These fares are valid between now and 31 March for travel to any of Cathay Pacific's eight European destinations. Passengers also have the added flexibility to travel back from a different European city to the one at which they arrived.
These special Europe fares are available on all flights from Hong Kong to Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Istanbul, London, Manchester, Paris, Rome, and Zurich. With the added flexibility option, passengers can for example choose to travel from Hong Kong to London, and then travel from Rome back to Hong Kong, enabling them to see more of Europe during their stay.
Cathay Pacific's General Manager Sales Hong Kong & China Dane Cheng said: "Europe has always been a favourite destination for Hong Kong travellers. We hope these special fares will entice even more Hong Kong people to experience some of the wonders that Europe can offer. To help them see more of Europe, we have also added an element of flexibility by letting them fly back from a different city."
The special Europe fares can also be used in conjunction with Cathay Pacific's existing discounts for senior citizens and children. Senior citizens over 65 and children under 12 years are therefore eligible for a further 25 percent discount off these already discounted fares.
To qualify for the special Europe fares passengers have to make a booking between now and 10 March. They should depart Hong Kong on or before 31 March and stay in Europe for a maximum of 30 days. For more information, passengers should contact their nearest Cathay Pacific Reservations office or their travel agent in Hong Kong.
Cathay Pacific offers a range of highly attractive discount fares for travel to many of its 51 destinations. Earlier this month the airline launched a discount fare for travel between Hong Kong and London. Other recent promotions include a special Asia Miles bonus for travel to North America. From 1 March to 30 April, Economy Class passengers travelling from Hong Kong to any of Cathay Pacific's five North American destinations will receive 35,000 Asia Miles, more than double the regular amount.FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:
