Cathay Pacific to resume Dubai flights

The airline will operate three direct flights a week starting in October

Cathay Pacific will resume direct flights between Dubai and Hong Kong from 2 October, operating flights on Monday, Friday and Saturday.

The airline will once again provide Dubai-based travellers with direct access to Hong Kong in addition to connections to onward destinations, including the Philippines, Indonesia, Japan and South Korea. 

Cathay Pacific area manager Middle East Vishnu Rajendran said: “Reactivating our link from the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) to Hong Kong is extremely important to us as the market remains a priority. We’re confident our offerings, like the ease of connections, warm Asian hospitality, diverse in-flight entertainment options and customer-centric initiatives such as our health document verification tool, Fly Ready, make us one of the world’s greatest service brands.

Which airlines are the safest to fly in 2022?

“Aside from the stream of those visiting friends and relatives and business travellers who we welcome on board from around the region, travellers from the GCC are also searching for cultural experiences abroad. Hong Kong and the various destinations that are easily accessible from our home hub, such as Japan and South Korea, offer these in abundance. Moreover, our much-anticipated thrice-weekly passenger flights will also support our cargo freighters, of which we have eight per week flying from the Emirate.”


Cathay Pacific will deploy its Boeing 777-300 on its Dubai–Hong Kong route, catering to the increased cargo demand as well as passenger traffic.
