Cathay Pacific to launch Hong Kong flights from London Gatwick

Cathay Pacific Airways has announced it will launch a new four-times-weekly service from London's Gatwick Airport to Hong Kong.

The flights, which will start from Gatwick’s south terminal in September next year, will be the only non-stop service between the two airports.

The flights will complement the airline’s current five-times-daily service from Heathrow Airport, meaning the carrier will operate a total of 39 flights a week between London and Hong Kong. In addition to serving the UK's capital, Cathay Pacific also offers a four-times-weekly service between Manchester and Hong Kong. 

Cathay Pacific’s general manager Europe Neil Glenn said: "Cathay Pacific has been flying between London and Hong Kong for 35 years and our commitment to the UK market remains strong. We are delighted to launch a non-stop service from Gatwick to Hong Kong, using our new state-of-the-art A350 aircraft, which will help meet increasing demand for both business and leisure travel between the Asia Pacific region and the UK.

These additional flights between London and Hong Kong will provide our passengers with greater choice and flexibility and, at the same time, continue to boost Hong Kong’s standing as an international aviation hub."
