Cathay Pacific has taken a vote of confidence in Dubai’s tourism and travel potential with the introduction of two weekly non-stop flights between Dubai and Hong Kong. The move coincides
With the introduction of first class seating on flights into Dubai and a new business class product.

“We are delighted with the response to the introduction of our two additional flights to Dubai; since launching, the flights have witnessed very encouraging load factors,” said Robert Cutler, Cathay Pacific’s director of service delivery.

“These introductions reflect Cathay Pacific's commitment to the region and the importance of Dubai. With the growing relationships between the Middle East and Asia, businesses will now be able to take better advantage of the network we offer throughout the Asia Pacific region from our hub at Hong Kong International Airport.”

The twice-weekly return flights are operated using modern Airbus 330-300 aircraft and passengers can choose between First, Cathay Pacific's recently launched New Business Class product or Economy Class. A special two for the price of one offer on First and Business seats runs till March 31.

Cathay says that its First Class product is the result of several years of extensive customer research and product development; and was created with the intention of setting a new standard of privacy, comfort and service. New Business Class cabins feature one of the longest and widest stretch-flat seats in the sky, as well as audio and video on demand, according to Cathay.
