Cathay Pacific currently runs a four-times-weekly Hong Kong to Manchester service but the airline has recently announced that daily flights will commence on this route on 1st December.
Cathay Pacific announced in March that it would be increasing the number of weekly flights to Manchester to six by the end of the year. The further increase in frequency comes in response to growing customer demand.
As of June, the Airbus A350-900 will replace the Boeing 777-300ER on all flights to Manchester, making it the second Cathay Pacific destination in the UK, after Gatwick, to receive the aircraft.
Paul Loo, Director of Corporate Development and IT for Cathay Pacific said:
“The enhanced schedule will provide business and leisure travellers with more choice and greater flexibility in planning their trips for added convenience, while at the same time strengthening Hong Kong’s position as Asia’s leading aviation hub.”
Cathay Pacific is the largest operator of flights between Hong Kong and the UK. The airline operates five daily flights from London Heathrow and Gatwick will also have a daily service (currently four times-weekly) from 1st June.
