Cathay Pacific is increasing its flights to the United States next year with the announcement of additional and new routes. Starting on June 1, 2014, the airline will add a fourth daily direct flight from Los Angeles to Hong Kong to be serviced by a Boeing 777-300ER that will have first, business, premium economy, and economy class seats. Then on August 2, Cathay will add three more direct flights from Chicago to Hong Kong, also with a 777-300ER that will have all of the same cabins except for first class. This will make for a total of 10 weekly flights from Chicago. Previously, the airline announced that it would start daily direct service from Newark Liberty International Airport to Hong Kong on March 1, 2014.
â€śThe new Chicago-Hong Kong flights will offer much improved connections to our Asia networkâ€”including over 22 destinations in mainland China and six in Indiaâ€”and the morning departure from Hong Kong to Los Angeles will give passengers the option of a morning arrival into the city, with a range of onward connections to other US cities.Â Additionally, the launch of our Newark-Hong Kong service on March 1, 2014, will provide more convenience and greater flexibility for passengers traveling to and from the New York metropolitan area,â€ť said Tom Owen, Cathay Pacific senior vice president of the Americas, in a statement.
