From December 2014, Cathay Pacific will add up to some 580 extra seats a week between Sydney and Hong Kong, increasing by around 1,370 seats a week from February 2015.

The 2014 Skytrax “Airline Of The Year” will replace one Airbus 330-300 with a Boeing 777-300ER on CX138/CX139 between Sydney and Hong Kong three times a week from December and daily from February 2015. Boeing 777

From December, the 777-300ER will operate CX138/139 on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday with the A330 operating on the other days until the aircraft takes over daily service in February 2015.

Cathay Pacific operates four times daily between Sydney and Hong Kong and will continue to utilise A330-300 flights on the other three daily flights.

Nelson Chin, Regional General Manager, Cathay Pacific South West Pacific said, “We’ve seen very high passenger numbers throughout Australia and on our Sydney flights in particular this year and are therefore responding to the very solid demand by increasing capacity on a key flight.”

The current schedule sees CX138 depart Sydney at 9.55pm and CX139 depart Hong Kong at 9.00am.

This additional capacity follows on from increases in capacity in Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Cairns in March this year.
