Cathay adds Abu Dhabi to route network
Cathay Pacific Airways will fly to Abu Dhabi from Hong Kong four times a week from June 2011.
The Abu Dhabi service will be operated by an Airbus A330-300 aircraft with departures to and from Abu Dhabi on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
Cathay Pacific currently offers a double daily operation to and from Dubai.
“We are extremely excited about being able to expand our network in 2011 with new services to Abu Dhabi and Chicago Cathay Pacific,” said Tony Tyler, chief executive of Cathay.
“We already have a significant presence in both the Middle East and the United States, and these new destinations will help to meet demand for both business and leisure travel to and from Hong Kong.
“The continued expansion of our network highlights our commitment to boosting our home city’s role as one of the world’s great international aviation hubs.”
