Meanwhile, the airline has said that its flight crews will resume staying overnight in Tokyo (except for CX520 which will be a turnaround flight) following confirmation from six United Nations agencies that there are no health or safety hazards associated with transportation. Almost all the major carriers have now returned to crew layovers in Tokyo.
“To prepare for the resumption of layovers, our operations departments have ensured that crew hotels in Tokyo are well prepared and that such things as water and food supplies are safe and plentiful for crew,” said a Cathay Pacific spokesperson.
“As always, our top priority is the safety and well-being of our passengers and crew, and we continue to monitor the situation in Japan closely and take advice from the relevant authorities,” she added.
