Cathay Pacific “guards” draw attention to third daily London flight
06 Oct 2003
Cathay Pacific Airways today staged a "live" promotion to draw Hong Kong's attention to the airline's third-daily service from Hong Kong to London Heathrow. Three guards - signifying the three flights - in traditional red tunic's and tall bearskin-like hats marched through Hong Kong's Central district to the delight of locals.
Cathay Pacific now offers more services between Hong Kong and London than any other airline, with smooth onward connections to and from destinations throughout Southeast Asia, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.
