Cathay Pacific will launch a seasonal non-stop service to Cape Town from 13 November 2018 to 18 February 2019, directly linking the South African city with Hong Kong for the first time.
The three-times-weekly service will be operated by state-of-the-art Airbus A350-900 aircraft.
Cathay Pacific Chief Executive Officer Rupert Hogg said: “We are very pleased to be able to expand our services in Africa, a booming aviation market. Growing our reach to destinations that are not otherwise served from Hong Kong creates considerable new opportunities for business, trade and tourism, in addition to strengthening our home hub.”
Hogg added that the new service will meet customer demand for travel to the scenic Western Cape throughout the southern hemisphere’s peak summer months, as well as provide an additional option for South African-based travellers looking to fly on Cathay Pacific to Asia and beyond via Hong Kong.
