Come September 15, Hong Kong’s flag carrier will debut a four-times-weekly service to Washington–Dulles, connecting the harbor city and the U.S. capital for the first time with regular nonstop flights.

Clocking in at just under 16 hours each way, these will be operated aboard brand-new Airbus A350-1000 aircraft, a natural choice for the more than 13,000-kilometer route—the longest in the Cathay network.
