With the prospect of “travel bubbles” between countries in the Asia-Pacific region still some way off, airlines have no choice but to operate on reduced frequencies. Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon have now updated their regional flight schedules for October 25 to November 30, 2020; from Hong Kong, CX will offer twice-daily flights to Tokyo Haneda with Boeing 777-300 or 777-300ER aircraft, while Manila is getting a daily service aboard an Airbus A330-300. Elsewhere in Southeast Asia, Cathay will be running thrice-weekly flights to both Singapore and Jakarta on A330-300s, and deploying the same kind of aircraft between Hong Kong and Bangkok five times a week.

Previous plans to resume regular services to Delhi and Mumbai have not panned out, given the multiple extensions to a ban on international flights put in place by Indian authorities. As for Cathay’s Mainland China routes, ongoing restrictions from the Civil Aviation Administration of China mean that additional changes are highly possible. Here are the Cathay Pacific Group’s planned regional operations through November:

China (Mainland) Beijing Capital 4 weekly
Shanghai Pudong 4 weekly

In related news, Cathay Pacific aims to resume services between Hong Kong and Tel Aviv on November 5 with weekly flights aboard an Airbus A350-1000XWB. Frequencies on certain routes to Australia and Europe will then be stepped up come early December. The latest long-haul schedule, valid until the end of the year, is as follows:
