Cathay Pacific to implement direct Cape town to Hong Kong flight

Cathay Pacific will launch a seasonal non-stop service to Cape Town later this year, directly linking the popular business and tourism destination with Hong Kong for the very first time.

The three-times-weekly service will launch on 13 November 2018 to 18 February 2019, will complement Cathay Pacific’s existing daily non-stop flights to Johannesburg and will be operated by Airbus A350-900 aircraft.

Cathay Pacific Chief Executive Officer Rupert Hogg said: “We are very pleased to be able to expand our services in Africa, a booming aviation market. Growing our reach to destinations that are not otherwise served from Hong Kong creates considerable new opportunities for business, trade and tourism, in addition to strengthening our home hub.”

He added that the new service will meet customer demand for travel to the scenic Western Cape throughout the southern hemisphere’s peak summer months, as well as provide an additional option for South African-based travellers looking to fly on Cathay Pacific to Asia and beyond via Hong Kong.
