Cathay Pacific Airways announced that it will launch an additional three-times-weekly direct service between Hong Kong and San Francisco commencing 11 June 2015.
The three extra flights, operating as CX892/893, will bring the total number of Cathay Pacific flights between Hong Kong and San Francisco to 17 a week, providing more choice, greater convenience and improved connectivity for passengers travelling through the Hong Kong hub to the West Coast of the United States.
Cathay Pacific Chief Operating Officer Rupert Hogg said: “Adding an evening departure out of Hong Kong will give our passengers more flexibility when travelling to San Francisco. These additional flights will also be a boon for the significant number of passengers who choose to travel through the Hong Kong hub to connect to a huge number of Asian destinations in the networks of Cathay Pacific and our sister airline, Dragonair.”
Cathay Pacific currently operates more than 100 passenger flights a week between Hong Kong and a number of destinations in North America, including Chicago, Los Angeles, New York (JFK), Newark, San Francisco, Toronto and Vancouver. The airline will commence operations to Boston, Massachusetts, on 2 May 2015.
