Customer demand and satisfaction for Cathay Pacific’s services between Hong Kong and Tel Aviv are also reasons behind the airline’s decision to announce additional frequencies between the two cities from next summer.
Launched in March 2017 as a four-times-weekly operation, the Airbus A350-900-operated route will be served six times a week from 25 March 2018, increasing to daily throughout October and November.
Mr Lam said: “We are delighted by how well the Tel Aviv service has been received, with high load factors being sustained since its launch.
“This customer support has encouraged us to increase frequency on the route, which will provide even greater convenience and gives our customers another reason for choosing Cathay Pacific.”
Customers travelling to and from Hong Kong and Barcelona and Tel Aviv can be assured of a premium experience on-board the Airbus A350. The fuel-efficient aircraft is equipped with the airline’s latest cabin products, an enhanced inflight entertainment system and Wi-Fi connectivity in Business, Premium Economy and Economy classes.
