Cathay Pacific has announced the continuation of its recently relaunched flights between Dubai and its hub, Hong Kong, following its first flight which took off on 21 May 2021. In a statement, the Hong Kong-based carrier said the first resumed flight from Dubai took off successfully with strong cargo demand with a full cargo load on the flight.
Cathay said the weekly flight, operated by an Airbus A330-300, will continue to follow the same schedule as May, providing UAE residents and visitors with convenient connections to Hong Kong and onwards across Cathay Pacific’s network.
“On announcing the resumption of our passenger services from Dubai, we received a favorable response from the passengers and trade partners. Not only was it humbling to welcome back our guests as we took to the skies again, but also extremely encouraging as we look to scale up our global network operations” said Vishnu Rajendran, Middle East Area Manager, Cathay Pacific.
In addition to passengers, Cathay’s recent flight also welcomed a full belly-hold as Cathay Pacific provided additional capacity on the route, which has witnessed healthy demands for varied shipments during recent months through its Cargo-only flights, it said.
