Cathay Pacific celebrates daily Beijing service with “Visit Beijing Now” promotion
24 Nov 2004
Cathay Pacific Airways today announced a special “Visit Beijing Now” promotion to celebrate the airline’s upcoming daily service between Hong Kong and Beijing from 1 December 2004. The new service will bring the two cities closer than even and also reinforces Hong Kong’s position as an international aviation hub and the primary gateway to China.
The “Visit Beijing Now” special promotion offers passengers two nights of free accommodation in three of Beijing’s top premium hotels. Passengers who’ve booked with Cathay Pacific to travel to Beijing anytime between 1 December 2004 to 28 February 2005 will enjoy the delightful rooms at Marco Polo Beijing, Novotel Peace Beijing or the Shangri-La’s Kerry Centre Hotel. Bookings are accepted from now until 14 January 2005. Asia Miles accrual is subject to the applicable fare conditions.
Cathay Pacific resumed services to Beijing with three weekly flights on 2 December 2003. The four additional weekly flights will offer passengers more options to connect with the airline’s international services through Hong Kong.
Cathay Pacific Airways General Manager Sales Hong Kong and China Clement Lam said: “We are delighted to launch this promotion to celebrate our daily service to Beijing. Passengers can now be better connected to China and the rest of the world via Hong Kong and at the same time, enjoy Cathay Pacific’s premium service.”
Cathay Pacific has been granted rights to operate a second daily service to Beijing from the start of the Summer 2005 season. If Cathay Pacific were able to operate that service at a different time of the day that would create wider opportunities for the airline to draw more connecting passengers over Hong Kong.
