Cathay Pacific launches flights from Hong Kong to Tel Aviv

The service was originally launched as a four-times-weekly service.

Cathay Pacific operated its inaugural service from Hong Kong to Tel Aviv on 26 March – the latest destination in the airline’s expanding global network. Flight CX675, a non-stop service flown by the advanced Airbus A350 aircraft, departed Hong Kong at 01:00, touching down at Ben Gurion Airport on schedule at 07:53 local time.

Originally launched as a four-times-weekly service, Cathay Pacific Director Corporate Development and IT Paul Loo said the strength of advance bookings on the route has prompted Cathay Pacific to increase frequency to five times per week from 1 September to 17 November 2017.

The airline has taken delivery of 12 Airbus A350 aircraft to date with 10 more to arrive by the end of 2017, which will help Cathay Pacific open up new markets and strengthen Hong Kong’s position as Asia’s premier aviation hub.

The airline recently announced new A350-operated seasonal services to Barcelona from July and Christchurch from December.
