CX New Flight Routes
Cathay Pacific has recently resumed flights between South Africa and Asia and has revealed plans to expand its operations.
As the airline ramps up its services, it is considering the addition of new routes and an increase in flight frequencies
In an interview this week, Rakesh Raicar, the Regional General Manager for South Asia, Middle East & Africa, attributed this expansion to the pent-up demand of the past three years. During this period, the airline experienced strong demand on many of its routes.
“We have achieved 50% of our pre-Covid passenger travel capacity and are on track to reach 70% by the end of the year. Furthermore, our cargo capacity is projected to reach 85% of pre-Covid levels by the close of 2023,” Raicar stated.
Cathay Pacific informed Business Report that with the reinstatement of its flights to Hong Kong, South African passengers can now access Hong Kong and various destinations such as Shanghai, Beijing, Xiamen, Hangzhou, Guangzhou, and more via Hong Kong.
Additionally, as the demand for corporate and leisure travel to Southeast Asian regions returns to pre-pandemic levels, the revival of flights to Hong Kong strengthens the convenience of connecting to the Greater Bay Area through their intermodal transport services.
