Cathay and Lufthansa to India

More Indian cities are beginning to attract the major international carriers. Cathay Pacific Airways will further extend its presence in the world’s largest democracy with four-times-weekly service between Hong Kong and Hyderabad, India’s fourth most populous conurbation and an important hub for the technology and pharmaceutical industries.  The new service complements the airline’s existing passenger services to Chennai, Delhi and Mumbai and will further boost both leisure and business travel between Hong Kong and India.
The new Hyderabad service commences on 1 December 2012 and will be operated by Airbus A330-300 aircraft, departing from Hong Kong every Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening.

The emergence of Bangalore as a major technological centre may have been one of the reasons for Lufthansa to choose the city as the destination for its third Boeing 747-8 ‘Queen of the Skies’ when it comes into daily service 13 September from Frankfurt.  Washington and Delhi are now also served by the first two aircraft.  The next, the fourth, is scheduled to operate flights to Los Angeles later this year.  Lufthansa has ordered a total of 20 Boeing 747-8s. www.cathaypacific.com www.lufthansa.com
