Cathay Pacific to operate more San Francisco flights from June

news

Hong Kong (Jan. 23, 2015): Cathay Pacific Airways today announced that it will launch an additional three-times-weekly direct service between Hong Kong and San Francisco commencing 11 June 2015.

The three extra flights, operating as CX892/893, will bring the total number of Cathay Pacific flights between Hong Kong and San Francisco to 17 a week, providing more choice, greater convenience and improved connectivity for passengers travelling through the Hong Kong hub to the West Coast of the United States.

Cathay Pacific Chief Operating Officer Rupert Hogg said: “Adding an evening departure out of Hong Kong will give our passengers more flexibility when travelling to San Francisco. These additional flights will also be a boon for the significant number of passengers who choose to travel through the Hong Kong hub to connect to a huge number of Asian destinations in the networks of Cathay Pacific and our sister airline, Dragonair.”

Rajesh Menon, Regional Sales & Marketing Manager, South Asia says, “It’s a welcome change that we are adding more flights to and from San Francisco. San Francisco is an important route that we serve from India, especially from the South Indian cities of Hyderabad, Chennai and Bengaluru. A huge portion of corporate travel, student travel and the visiting friends and relatives segment travel to this city. This addition of flights along with our world class products and service surely enhances our commitment to serve passengers travelling from India on this route.”

Cathay Pacific currently operates more than 100 passenger flights a week between Hong Kong and a number of destinations in North America, including Chicago, Los Angeles, New York (JFK), Newark, San Francisco, Toronto and Vancouver. The airline will commence operations to Boston, Massachusetts, on 2 May 2015.
