Cathay Pacific has announced the resumption of its Hong Kong-Chennai route with three non-stop weekly flights. The route operation will commence from February 2, 2024, after a four-year hiatus. The flights will depart Chennai on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 0220 hours.
Cathay will serve the route with Boeing 777 aircraft configured in a three-cabin-class layout with 368 seats, comprising 40 in Business class, 32 in Premium Economy and 296 in Economy.
Anand Yedery, Regional Head of Customer Travel and Lifestyle, South Asia, Middle East and Africa said: “We are delighted to once again serve the residents of Chennai. As a Group, we have had a long-standing history with the city and now we will be taking to the skies thrice a week to and from Chennai International Airport on 2 February 2024.”
“A Boeing 777 aircraft on this route will not only cater to the travel needs of corporate and leisure travellers, but will also provide each segment with a cabin of choice and allow them to travel with enhanced comfort to Hong Kong and beyond. Moreover, relaunching Cathay Pacific in the city also gives us an opportunity to service our customers and partners, whilst providing them with a comfortable and a premium experience with our world-class products.”
The new Cathay route offers travellers onward connectivity via Hong Kong to other cities in the Greater Bay Area, the Chinese Mainland, North America, Northeast Asia, and the Southwest Pacific. For customers heading to the Southwest Pacific region, the airline offers convenient routes to cities like Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane. Moreover, to meet the travel needs of customers, the airline extends its reach to important Northeast Asian hubs such as Seoul and Tokyo (Narita and Haneda), providing easy access to key international destinations.
