Cathay Pacific has boosted frequencies on in-demand routes to Adelaide, Frankfurt, Madrid and Tokyo.

The Frankfurt Airbus A350-900 connection from Hong Kong will now be flown 10 times a week with an additional three services from 31 March 2019.

Cathay Pacific’s Adelaide A330-300 route will be upped to six flights a week from 28 October this year and a new schedule also sees three weekly flights departing Hong Kong overnight, and three in the morning hours.

Between June and October 2019, the airline is going to be adding two weekly flights between Hong Kong and Madrid – on Mondays and Wednesdays; turning this five-times-weekly A350-900 service into a daily operation.

On the back of increasing customer demand, the carrier will be introducing an additional daily non-stop flight to Tokyo (Narita) from 28 October 2018. Cathay Pacific flies six times daily between Hong Kong and Tokyo (Narita).

Cathay Pacific said it is “growing at an unprecedented rate” as it looks to boost connectivity for customers across the world. In 2018 alone, 10 new destinations are linked with Hong Kong including Brussels, Copenhagen, Dublin, Nanning, Jinan, Washington D.C., Cape Town, Davao City, Medan and Tokushima.

The carrier will also add a destination in the shape of Seattle, which will join the network in March 2019 and it said there will be more announcements in the months ahead.
