Responding to customer demand, two of Cathay Pacific’s routes between the UK and Hong Kong have seen a boost in frequency.

Gatwick has moved to a daily service whilst Manchester increases to five flights per week. The airline's Manchester service will also join Gatwick in becoming an Airbus A350-900 operation.

Both routes have previously operated four flights per week. From this month, the carrier will operate a total of 47 non-stop flights per week between the UK and Hong Kong seeing Heathrow offering five flights daily, Gatwick moving daily and Manchester providing five flights weekly.

By December, frequency will further increase to provide a choice of 49 flights weekly, as Manchester joins Gatwick to offer a daily flight. The airline has also reopened its newly renovated lounge at Heathrow – the only lounge on its expanding global network outside of Hong Kong to offer separate First and Business Class areas.

Paul Cruttenden, the carrier's marketing and digital sales manager in the UK, said: “We are delighted to be increasing our schedule from Gatwick and Manchester to Hong Kong. The additional frequencies coupled with the introduction of the ultra-efficient A350 on our Manchester route, underline the deep-rooted commitment we have to providing both business and leisure passengers with increased convenience and superior in-flight products.”
