Cathay Pacific celebrates 25 years of service to Adelaide

October 6, 2017 Aviation No Comments Email Email

Cathay Pacific is celebrating 25 years of service to Adelaide. The South Australian city became Cathay Pacific’s 40th destination on 3 October 1992, and the service was initially operated by a weekly 747.

Over the past 25 years, Adelaide tourism has grown and Cathay Pacific has met demand by launching its fifth weekly service in July this year.

Cathay Pacific has special fares from Adelaide to Europe and North America on sale now, featuring local Adelaide products. The airline is passionate about strengthening its connection to Adelaide and currently works with following local businesses:

  • Business Class passengers receive amenity kits designed by Jurlique, an Adelaide skincare brand with ingredients farmed in the Adelaide Hills
  • The airline also offers Business Class passengers local Maggie Beer ice-cream
  • Two South Australian wines are currently offered in Business Class; D’Arenberg Olive Grove Chardonnay McLaren Vale 2016 and Tenacity Old Vine Shiraz South Australia 2016
  • Cathay Pacific’s commitment to the city is also evident through its partnership with Port Adelaide Football Club. In May this year, the airline flew the team to Shanghai for the first AFL game outside Australia and New Zealand.

To celebrate the anniversary and to encourage locals to live a life well travelled, Cathay Pacific is offering an exciting promotion on fares to Europe and North America.
