The Hong Kong-based Cathay Pacific Group (Cathay Pacific) is planning to augment the number of its flights to Manila in June.
In a recent advisory posted on its website, the group said Cathay Pacific intends to operate three flights per week in May to Manila, Tokyo (Narita), Taipei, Bangkok, Jakarta, Ho Chi Minh City and Singapore.
From June 21 to 30, the group said Cathay Pacific will operate “daily flights” to Manila, Tokyo (Narita), Osaka, Seoul, Taipei, Bangkok, Jakarta, Ho Chi Minh City and Singapore.
It said the additional passenger flights in June will increase its passenger network’s operating capacity by approximately 5%.
Also in May, Cathay Pacific plans to operate two flights per week to London (Heathrow), Los Angeles, Vancouver, Sydney and Delhi.
In the same month, Cathay Dragon, a wholly owned subsidiary of Cathay Pacific, will be operating three flights per week to Beijing, Shanghai (Pudong) and Kuala Lumpur.
The group said further that Cathay Pacific intends to operate five flights per week from June 21 to 30 to London (Heathrow), Los Angeles, Vancouver, Sydney; and three flights per week to Amsterdam, Frankfurt, San Francisco, Melbourne, Mumbai and Delhi.
It said Cathay Pacific or Cathay Dragon will be operating daily flights to Beijing and Shanghai (Pudong) during the same period.
Cathay Dragon also plans to operate daily passenger flights to Kuala Lumpur from June 21 to 30.
The group said the planned flight sules are still subject to government travel restrictions.
“We will continue to monitor the developing situation and further adjustments may be made as necessary,” it said. — Arjay L. Balinbin
