Cathay Pacific boosts services to Toronto and Auckland

HONG KONG – Cathay Pacific announced Friday further enhancements to its schedule with the introduction of a direct non-stop service and extra flights to Toronto, Canada, and additional flights to Auckland in New Zealand. From 1 January 2008, Cathay Pacific's service from Hong Kong to Toronto, currently routed through Anchorage, will become a daily non-stop flight. The flight will initially be operated by an Airbus A340-600 but from February the airline will progressively introduce its new Boeing 777-300ER aircraft on the route featuring Cathay Pacific's new three-class long-haul product. At the same time as launching the direct non-stop service, the airline will keep three weekly flights with a stopover in Anchorage, departing every Monday, Thursday and Saturday. This will take the number of flights to Toronto to 10 each week. In order to match demand over the winter peak, from 1 December 2007 to 29 March 2008, Cathay Pacific will be operating a twice-daily service to Auckland. For the summer schedule, effective 30 March to 25 October 2008, the airline will operate 10 scheduled flights a week to the New Zealand city, which means three more flights will be added each week compared to the summer schedule in 2007.
