Cathay Pacific hits the trifecta with upgrades on Sydney, Melbourne and Perth services

May 3, 2019 Aviation No Comments Email Email

Cathay Pacific is pleased to announce upgrades to its key city services to offer Australians a greener and quieter travel experience.

Paving the way in Victoria, Cathay Pacific will be first airline to launch the world’s most advanced aircraft, the Airbus A350-1000, from Melbourne on 27 October 2019. Hong Kong’s home airline will also commence operations with the latest wide-body aircraft from Perth on 28 October 2019.

Today, the airline also reveals it will commence A350-900 Sydney services from 28 October 2019 to replace A330s on CX111 and CX110 scheduled slots.

Cathay Pacific already has one of the youngest long-haul fleets in the sky – and with the arrival of more A350-1000 aircraft towards the end of the year, majority of flights to and from Australia will be served by one of the A350 aircraft family.

The largest variant, the A350-1000 for the Melbourne and Perth route will carry a total of 334 passengers across its Business, Premium Economy and Economy Class cabins, 54 more passengers than the airline’s A350-900 aircraft which will soon serve Sydney.

The advanced A350-1000, like its -900 sibling, brings together the very latest in aerodynamics, design and advanced technologies, providing improved fuel efficiency as well as a state-of-the-art travel experience for customers.

From a quieter cabin to LED mood lighting, the aircraft greatly improves passenger comfort and helps travellers arrive to their destination feeling refreshed. All Cathay Pacific A350 aircraft are equipped with Wi-Fi, allowing customers to remain connected throughout their journey.

Cathay Pacific Regional General Manager – South West Pacific Rakesh Raicar said: “We are prouder than ever to be the first airline to introduce the A350-1000 to Australia. The new aircraft offers a more spacious and quiet cabin, which will further enhance our customers’ travel experience and wellbeing”.
