Cathay Pacific will resume direct commercial operations from Mumbai and Delhi to Hong Kong.

The Hong Kong-based airline said in a statement that flight services on the Mumbai-Hong Kong route will resume from May 4, 2022,  while direct operations between Hong Kong and Delhi will be restored from May 6, 2022.

Cathay Pacific said  that the resumption of scheduled services will provide travelers direct access to Hong Kong in addition to onward connections to popular destinations such as New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Vancouver, Toronto, Melbourne and Sydney.

Cathay Pacific will deploy the Boeing B777-300 on its India routes, catering to increasing cargo demand as well as passenger traffic. The aircraft, which can carry up to 35 tonnes cargo, is also configured with a three-class cabin.

“We are delighted to resume our flights from Mumbai and Delhi to Hong Kong, and look forward to welcoming passengers on-board to experience our warm Asian hospitality that makes us one of the world’s greatest service brands,” Cathay Pacific regional general manager – South Asia, Middle East and Africa Rakesh Raicar said in a statement.

“In the last two years many enhancements have been introduced to our product and services to ensure our customers can travel seamlessly and with confidence.”

Raicar added: “We believe the resumption from India will ignite a spark of excitement and will go a long way towards helping the Indian diaspora, particularly in India and Hong Kong, to once again connect with their loved ones. With our onward connections to key destinations, we will also be able to accommodate the resurgent demand for international travel.”
