Cathay Pacific re-commenced its fifth weekly service to Adelaide last week and the additional flight will see the airline increase its capacity on the route by 25 per cent and brings the weekly number of seats to 2,500.
Richard Jones, Sales and Marketing Manager of Cathay Pacific Airways Australia, said: “For over 20 years, Cathay Pacific has served passengers travelling between Adelaide and Hong Kong, and beyond to over 170 destinations worldwide. We’re delighted to expand our Adelaide services, showing our dedication to the region and our continued commitment to supporting the growth in tourism.
“It’s a great time for South Australians to be travelling, whether they want to capture a glimpse of the forever evolving skyline of Hong Kong, experience the culinary delights of Asia or explore the wonders of Europe, our fifth flight offers our passengers more choice and flexibility,” he said.
Adelaide Airport Managing Director, Mark Young, said the additional service was great news for international travellers.
“Our customers have clearly shown their support for Cathay Pacific’s same-day connections to mainland China and this will provide further options for passengers as well as South Australian exporters,” he said.
