Cathay Pacific strengthens commitment to Adelaide with fifth service
Boasting picturesque wine country and beaches with crystal-clear waters, Adelaide is fast becoming a popular destination for travellers looking to escape the hustle of everyday life and create long-lasting memories.
Supporting the growth in tourism, Cathay Pacific will re-commence its fifth weekly service to South Australia on 5 July 2017. The additional flight will see the airline increase its capacity on the route by 25 per cent and brings the weekly number of seats to 2,500. The airline will also add space for 15 tonnes of cargo.
Richard Jones, Sales and Marketing Manager of Cathay Pacific Airways Australia, said “For over 20 years, Cathay Pacific has served passengers travelling between Adelaide and Hong Kong, and beyond to over 170 destinations worldwide. We’re delighted to expand our Adelaide services, showing our dedication to the region and our continued commitment to supporting the growth in tourism”.
“It’s a great time for South Australians to be travelling, whether they want to capture a glimpse of the forever evolving skyline of Hong Kong, experience the culinary delights of Asia or explore the wonders of Europe, our fifth flight offers our passengers more choice and flexibility.” he said.
Adelaide Airport Managing Director, Mark Young, said the additional service was great news for international travellers.
“Our customers have clearly shown their support for Cathay Pacific’s same-day connections to mainland China and this will provide further options for passengers as well as South Australian exporters,” Mr Young said.
“The additional flight also means an increase in capacity for freight from South Australia including meat, chilled dairy and seafood being exported around the world.”
