Cathay Pacific: more flights between CEB and HKG

Passengers traveling between Cebu and Hong Kong will soon enjoy more choice and convenience as Cathay Pacific increases its frequency during the summer travel peak.

The airline currently flies 10 times weekly between the two cities and will add 2 flights weekly between July 3 and October 26, bringing the total to 12 flights weekly during the traditional worldwide summer peak.

Cathay Pacific also announced that it will be increasing the frequency of services to some of its most popular destinations across three continents in order to meet growing customer demand. The enhanced schedules – which apply to San Francisco, Brisbane, Manchester, Paris and Madrid – will provide business and leisure travelers with more choice and greater flexibility in planning their trips.

North America – San Francisco will be served three times a day following the addition of four flights to its weekly schedule from the end of October 2017. This new daily service will be operated by the Airbus A350, making the West Coast city the first destination in the US to welcome Cathay Pacific’s technologically-advanced aircraft.

Australia – During the southern hemisphere’s peak summer period from late October to March, the airline will replace its current four-times weekly one-stop service to Brisbane via Cairns with direct flights to both cities. The switch means that Queensland’s capital will receive 11 non-stop flights from Hong Kong each week, while Cairns will be served non-stop three times a week.

In addition to the new non-stop services, Brisbane’s existing daily flight will be served by the A350 from 26 March. Cathay Pacific also recently announced that from late October, it will increase capacity on its four-times daily Sydney route by operating a third flight with the Boeing 777-300ER.

Europe – Madrid will see an increase from four to five flights per week from late October, while a sixth weekly flight will operate to Manchester from early December. At the same time, Paris will see the resumption of an 11th weekly service.

Details of the new additional services will be available in the Flight Timetable under the Travel Information section at www.cathaypacific.ph. Promotional fares for the airline’s additional services between Cebu and Hong Kong can also be found on the website.
