Cathay Pacific and Air New Zealand extend services between Hong Kong and New Zealand

Cathay Pacific will introduce a new seasonal service between Hong Kong and Christchurch from December 2017, directly linking the two cities by air for the first time and complementing the airline’s existing services to Auckland.

The non-stop Christchurch service will operate three times per week, departing Hong Kong on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays using technologically-advanced Airbus A350 aircraft, highlighting the airline’s commitment to New Zealand.

Subject to regulatory approvals, the new service will operate between 1st December 2017 and 28th February 2018 and will complement Cathay Pacific’s current seasonal double daily flights to Auckland as well as strategic partner Air New Zealand’s daily service between Hong Kong and Auckland.
