When addressing the media Vishnu Rajendran, Cathay Pacific Manager in Middle East said, “Dubai has been an important route for us for more than four decades and we are extremely excited to be resuming our operations from here. We look forward to welcoming travellers from the region who will once again be able to experience our warm, thoughtful service, together with our traditional Asian hospitality. Our customers can now fly confidently with Cathay Care, our commitment towards the wellbeing of our passengers, as we endeavor to provide a safe, secure and comfortable travel experience throughout their journey.”
Rajendran added: “The resumption of this strategic route taps into the resurgent travel demand and underlines our ongoing efforts to recover our business from the impact of the pandemic. It will also provide for additional cargo space to support our scheduled freighters that have been operating through these times.”
