Cathay Pacific to add extra flights from Tokyo today and tomorrow
17 Mar 2011
Cathay Pacific is mounting one extra flight from Tokyo to Hong Kong today (17 March) and another one tomorrow (18 March) to help meet the anticipated demand from people trying to return to Hong Kong amidst the continued uncertainty of the situation in Japan.
The additional services will add a total of more than 730 seats to some 5,400 seats available on the airline’s seven daily flights from Tokyo during the two-day period.
The airline will continue to be guided by the advisories of the relevant authorities in Japan, Hong Kong and elsewhere that currently travel to Tokyo remains safe. As Hong Kong’s home carrier, Cathay Pacific will continue to monitor the situation closely and make changes to its operations as necessary to meet demand for seats out of Tokyo.
The additional flights from Tokyo to Hong Kong are as follows:
17 March CX2509 Narita-HK (depart at 2150 local time, arrive at 0200+1 local time)
18 March CX2509 Narita-HK (depart at 2150 local time, arrive at 0200+1 local time)
Cathay Pacific will continue to operate its scheduled services to and from Tokyo, with four non-stop flights to Narita, one flight via Taipei to Narita and two flights to Haneda.
Cathay Pacific also announced that, with immediate effect, the availability of the special one-way fare of HK$5,755 from Japan to Hong Kong will be extended to 27 March 2011. Passengers can contact our reservations staff in Hong Kong on +852 2747-1888 or in Japan on 0034-800-100171.
