Dublin Birthday Fare Bonanza

Cathay Pacific celebrates the first anniversary of Ireland’s first and only non-stop flight to Hong Kong with return fares starting from €399

It was only last year that Cathay Pacific launched Ireland’s first non-stop flight to the Far East. On 2 June 2019, the Dublin-Hong Kong four-times-weekly flight will turn one year old.

Cathay Pacific Regional Head of Marketing & Sales Europe, Edward Fotheringham, said: “We are thrilled to see that in just one year, nearly 40,000 passenger trips have been made, and 2 million kilos of freight carried from Dublin to Hong Kong and beyond. On behalf of Cathay Pacific’s team and our newly-appointed Account Manager Dublin, Fiona Noonan, we would like to thank our passengers and trade partners for their encouraging and continued support.”

“Most of all, we look forward to further growing bilateral trade and tourism relationships between Ireland and the Far East,” Ed continued. “It remains our top priority to make this relative new addition in our ever-expanding network a continued commercial success.”

    Game-changing Economy

    Cathay Pacific is moving beyond for our customers by bringing personal recognition and a sense of care and reliability to the whole travel experience.

    To that end, Cathay Pacific operates its newest Airbus A350 aircraft into Dublin – one of the only airlines to do so. Onboard the aircraft, passengers will find seats that emphasise comfort; technologies that enhance wellbeing and connectivity, not to mention delectable hot meals, beverages and snacks for all passengers throughout the flight.

    • Thoughtful seat details – every A350-900 Economy seat comes with a Cathay Pacific proprietary six-way headrest that fully cocoons the head and neck, and an armrest that lies flush with the seat back for extra shoulder space. Every seat also features its own power outlet and USB port, with a dedicated fold-down tablet shelf at eye level for easy viewing of passenger’s own devices. The Economy Class seat pitch is generous at 32”; footwell space is maximised as there are no obstructions under the seat in front.
    • Progressive entertainment – equipped with inflight Wi-Fi, customers can stay connected on social media at 35,000 ft. The inflight entertainment system features a high-definition 11” screen, which can be used to livestream TV news, a myriad of on-demand movies, box sets, games, music, and international magazines. Passengers can also interact with a fun 3D map that zooms the globe onto street level.
    • Can-do spirit – our helpful ground colleagues and cabin crew strive to move beyond the expected and standard for our customers, to make their journeys memorable and enjoyable.

    80+ Destinations in the Far East and Down Under

    Cathay Pacific along with regional airline Cathay Dragon fly to more than 80+ destinations in Australasia – more than any other airlines currently operating out of Dublin.
