According to aviation blog Routesonline, Cathay Pacific has recently updated its planned operational schedule until the end of July, as it seeks to restore passenger services on major air routes both within Asia and beyond the continent. Boeing 777-300 aircraft will depart Hong Kong for Beijing Capital four times a week from July 1, and flights to Delhi and Mumbai are due to restart the next day with thrice-weekly services aboard Airbus A330-300 aircraft. A symbolic milestone will be reached on July 3, when the airline will reintroduce flights on the perennially popular route between Hong Kong and Toronto, a preferred place of emigration for tens of thousands of Hong Kongers in the decades leading up to the 1997 Handover. Cathay will deploy Airbus A350-1000XWB aircraft for the Toronto service, which will be operated three times a week.

On July 12, the carrier’s jets will once again take off for Seoul and Frankfurt on a thrice-weekly basis. Cathay Pacific is also set to increase flight frequencies across its global network on that date. As an example, scheduled services on the Singapore, Jakarta, Taipei Taoyuan, and Tokyo Narita routes, all of which are currently flown three times a week, will be boosted to daily flights.

In addition, Cathay Pacific will be flying to these destinations outside the Asia-Pacific region in July:

Europe: Amsterdam, Frankfurt, London Heathrow

North America: Los Angeles, New York JFK, San Francisco, Toronto, Vancouver

As for regional subsidiary Cathay Dragon, which serves just two destinations at the moment (Beijing Capital and Kuala Lumpur), operations on six additional routes to mainland China will restart on July 12. Chengdu, Fuzhou, Guangzhou, and Hangzhou will be served with thrice-weekly flights, while the carrier is set to touch down in Shanghai Pudong and Xiamen four times a week. Airbus A330-300 aircraft will be used for all of Cathay Dragon’s reinstated routes.
