Cathay Pacific to add fifth daily service to Seoul


HONG KONG (Cathay Pacific) - Cathay Pacific Airways today announced the addition of a fifth daily flight to Seoul, South Korea, offering passengers even greater coverage of services throughout the day and further strengthening connections across its Hong Kong hub.

The new non-stop service, starting 27 January 2006, will depart Hong Kong shortly after midnight, arriving early morning in the South Korean capital. The return flight from Seoul will be the first departure for Hong Kong from the city and will arrive before noon.

The new service will complement the airline’s existing schedule. The late-night Hong Kong departure will enable business travellers to make the most of the workday and connect with inbound services from Bangkok, Australia and New Zealand.

The return leg will principally make onward connections to Denpasar and points in Australia. Of the airline’s four other daily Seoul services, three are non-stop. The new service, for which final details remain subject to government approval, will also operate non-stop.

Cathay Pacific Director Corporate Development Augustus Tang said: “A fifth daily Cathay Pacific flight to and from Seoul capitalises on the growing enthusiasm for business and in particular leisure for travel to and from South Korea. Its schedule offers customers a new product and the prospect of easier access to more points across Cathay Pacific’s network, strengthening Hong Kong as a global hub.”
