Cathay to Manchester

Today (8 December) sees the introduction of a four times per week Cathay Pacific Airways service non-stop between Manchester and Hong Kong. The airline has for many years served the former British colony from Heathrow. 

The Manchester service will be operated by Boeing 777-300ER aircraft featuring Cathay Pacific’s acclaimed new cabin products, including the awarding-winning Business Class, Premium Economy and the new Economy Class seats.  Flight time is around 12 hours.

Flights will depart from Hong Kong to Manchester every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.  Departures from Manchester are also on these days.

Ivan Chu, Chief Executive of Cathay Pacific, said: "We have a deep commitment to the UK market and currently operate five flights a day to London Heathrow.  Business ties between the UK and Hong Kong are very strong and we have been seeing an ever-increasing demand for air travel to and from the Asia Pacific region for both business and leisure traffic.

“By providing yet more flights to the UK, and the only non-stop direct service between Hong Kong and Manchester, Cathay Pacific will offer passengers even more choice and flexibility and, at the same time, continue to boost Hong Kong’s standing as an international aviation hub."  www.cathaypacific.com
