Cathay Pacific’s flight service into and out of Osaka continue to be affected by the closure of Kansai International Airport (KIX). As the re-opening time of the airport remains uncertain, Cathay Pacific has cancelled all services to and from Osaka up to and including 10 September. We continue to closely monitor developments.

Cathay Pacific General Manager Airport Service Delivery Patrick Yu said: “In addition to the extra flight to and from Nagoya today (6 September), we will be operating an additional flight to and from Nagoya tomorrow (7 September) and on 8 September to meet the demand from our customers. We are also using larger aircraft on flights to and from both Nagoya and Tokyo Narita whenever we can to provide more choice and additional seats for customers.

“The safety of our passengers and crew is always our top priority and we sincerely appreciate our customers’ patience and understanding at this time.”
