Cathay Pacific’s Manchester service to go daily from December

Cathay Pacific announced that its current four-times-weekly Hong Kong to Manchester service will become a daily operation from 1st December 2017. From June onwards, the Airbus A350-900 will replace the Boeing 777-300ER on all flights to Manchester, making it the second Cathay Pacific destination in the UK, after London Gatwick, to receive the technologically-advanced aircraft. Cathay Pacific, already the largest operator of flights between Hong Kong and the UK, is committed to growing its reach in its longest serving long-haul market. The airline serves London Heathrow with five daily flights, while Gatwick, currently a four-times-weekly service, will go daily from 1st June 2017. Featuring the airline’s latest products in Business, Premium Economy and Economy Class, Cathay Pacific’s A350 aircraft encapsulates its brand promise of providing a “Life Well Travelled”. In addition to the latest seats and an enhanced inflight entertainment system, the aircraft is Wi-Fi equipped, meaning passengers can stay connected throughout their journey. Source: Cathay Pacific
