Cathay Expands YVR-Hong Kong Service


Cathay Pacific Airways is adding three new non-stop flights between Vancouver and Hong Kong, using the new Airbus 350-900XWB aircraft.

Starting March 28, 2017 three flights will be added to Cathay’s existing twice daily non-stop service, increasing the frequency from 14 to 17 flights per week.

According to officials, the three additional early morning departures, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, will provide West Coast passengers with unprecedented travel options to Hong Kong and beyond to multiple destinations in Asia and more than 23 cities in Mainland China.

Cathay Pacific vice-president, Canada, Nick Hays said the additional services are in response to increased demand for travel to and from Asia.

“It’s exciting to be able to grow our operations in Canada,” he said. “As a China and Asia travel specialist, it’s our pleasure to provide more choice, convenience and world-class service to passengers travelling between Vancouver and Hong Kong and beyond to our unrivalled Asia and China network.”

Cathay Pacific will operate the three extra flights with its new Airbus A350-900 aircraft featuring a refreshed Business Class cabin, as well as new Premium Economy Class and Economy Class seats.
