Cathay Pacific Airways today announced the addition of a sixth daily flight between Hong Kong and Manila.
The new service from Hong Kong, starting on 1 January 2003, will plug gaps in the airline's current schedule to the Philippines and provide more convenient onward connections throughout the day at Cathay Pacific's Hong Kong hub.
The evening departure from Hong Kong of flight CX913 and the breakfast-time turnaround of CX912 from Manila, starting on 2 January 2003, will also offer added convenience to business travellers.
In addition to Manila, Cathay Pacific operates a daily service to the island of Cebu.
Cathay Pacific Director Airline Planning Augustus Tang said: "Manila remains one of Cathay Pacific's busiest regional routes. The addition of a sixth daily flight will provide the capacity needed to meet the demand we are seeing from passengers wishing to travel to Hong Kong and connect with flights across Cathay Pacific's network."
Cathay Pacific serves about 60 destinations in Asia, North America, Europe, Australasia and Africa. Through the eight-carrier oneworld alliance, Cathay Pacific can connect passengers to more than 550 destinations in 135 countries and territories.
