Cathay Pacific increases Toronto service to double daily this summer

VANCOUVER — Recently announced, Cathay Pacific will increase the frequency of its summer service to Toronto with the addition of four weekly flights beginning June 24. The airline will operate twice-daily nonstop service from Hong Kong to Canada’s most populous city.

Cathay Pacific has experienced a growth in demand to and from Toronto since first launching flights in June 1994, especially during peak holiday season. In line with the current 10-times weekly service, the additional flights, which will be operated by Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, will live up to the brand promise of a ‘Life Well Travelled’.

Cathay Pacific Director Corporate Development & IT Paul Loo said: “Toronto is a growing destination for us, and with summer being a popular period for families to spend important time together, we are delighted to be able to offer our customers with more options and flexibility through these additional services. Cathay Pacific is wholly committed to the Canadian market and we are continually looking at ways in which we can increase our reach within the country.”

The extra four services, which will continue until Sept. 4, will depart from Hong Kong at 10:35, arriving in Toronto at 13:55 local time the same day, with return flights departing Toronto later in the afternoon and arriving in Hong Kong the following evening.

Cathay Pacific currently flies twice-daily flights to Vancouver from its Hong Kong hub, but will increase this service to 17 flights a week from March 28. The airline recently announced a codeshare agreement with Air Canada, enabling Cathay Pacific passengers to book domestic flights on Canada’s national carrier to major cities across the country.

In total, Cathay Pacific operates 108 scheduled passenger flights to North America weekly, including 24 flights per week to Toronto and Vancouver and 84 flights per week to Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City (JFK and Newark) and San Francisco.
