From December 1 this year, Cathay Pacificâ€™s Hong Kong to Manchester service will become a daily one, marking a major frequency boost from the current four-times-weekly schedule. Last month the carrier announced that it would increase weekly flights to the northern English city to six by yearâ€™s end, but growing customer demand has seen that number grow to seven. The outbound red-eye service will leave Chek Lap Kok at 1:10 a.m. for a 6:20 arrival in Manchester, while the return flight will depart at 11:55 a.m. to touch down in Hong Kong at 7:30 a.m. the next day.
From June onwards, the Airbus A350-900 will replace the Boeing 777-300ER on all flights to Manchester, making it the second Cathay Pacific destination in the United Kingdom, after London Gatwick, to receive the state-of-the-art aircraft. Cathayâ€™s Gatwick route will also see a frequency increase from four-times-weekly to a daily service from June 1.
