SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Cathay Pacific Airways this week added three weekly direct flight from San Francisco International Airport to Hong Kong, bringing the total number of non-stop weekly flights from San Francisco to 17. San Francisco was the airline’s first destination for non-stop service to the USA which launched in 1986. These additional flights demonstrate both the growing market for leisure and business travelers as well as Cathay Pacific’s ongoing commitment to expanding connectivity between North America and Asia, providing more scheduling flexibility and greater customer choice over the superb hub in Hong Kong. The added frequencies from San Francisco arrive on the heels of Cathay Pacific’s new four-times-weekly service from Boston to Hong Kong, which launched on May 3, 2015.
Flight CX893 from San Francisco to Hong Kong departs every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 1:30 am, arriving in Hong Kong the following day at 6:40 am. This early morning arrival was strategically coordinated to allow passengers to connect with every Cathay Pacific flight across Asia – including Singapore, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, and over 22 gateways in mainland China – without a lengthy layover in Hong Kong. The return flight, CX892, will depart Hong Kong at 6:45 pm (local time) on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, arriving in San Francisco at 4:30 pm (same day).
Cathay Pacific Senior Vice President, Americas, Tom Owen, said, “Our addition of three weekly direct flights from San Francisco to Hong Kong illustrates the commitment we have to further expanding connectivity for the North American market as well as better serving the growing demand in the wider San Francisco Bay Area.”
“In our continued efforts to deliver a product and service that our customers desire, the departure and arrival schedule is synchronized to offer even greater flexibility and connectivity over Hong Kong to and from most Asian points, for both leisure and business travelers. We are looking forward to introducing our award-winning cabin crew service, our premium in-flight product and catering and world-renowned airport lounges to more Americans in the months ahead.”
All of Cathay Pacific’s 17 flights from San Francisco are operated by Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. Flight CX893 offers a three-class cabin configuration on Wednesdays and Fridays: the award-winning Business Class, the newest cabin, Premium Economy, and the new long-haul Economy Class; Sunday departures also include First Class for a four-cabin configuration.
