Cathay Pacific will boost flights to Brisbane by 50% as part of its continued network expansion and rebuild.
Following an increase in flights between Hong Kong and Brisbane, there’ll be up to 76,440 inbound seats in the first year of operation.
The services from December 1st, 2023, will increase from four flights a week to six, and it is the only airline flying between Brisbane and Hong Kong. As such, significant importance is placed on the connection and Cathay Pacific’s role.
With Hong Kong being such a pivotal trade lane and Brisbane being home to various other elements that’ll benefit, this is a widely applauded decision.
This week 41 years ago we celebrated the arrival of the very first Cathay Pacific 747 to Brisbane. And today we celebrate the expansion of this service as we slowly build back to full pre-Covid recovery. Make no mistake, the link between Brisbane and Hong Kong is one of the region’s most critical for Queensland exports, and this will deliver money into the pockets of rural producers across the state, as well as local seafood companies, and of course tourism operatorsOliver Philpot, Head of Aviation Marketing & Partnerships at Brisbane Airport Corporation.
Those arriving in Brisbane onboard a Cathay Pacific service can connect onwards to domestic destinations within Australia and 30 destinations in Queensland alone.
