Cathay Pacific Group to launch flights to Tokushima

HONG KONG, September 23, 2018

The Cathay Pacific Group has announced a new twice-weekly service to the Japanese city of Tokushima, the carrier’s 10th new route launch in 2018.

The route will be operated by a Cathay Dragon A320 between December 18 and March 29, 2019.

Cathay Dragon has operated charter flights to Tokushima at peak holiday periods in the past and the introduction of a scheduled service underlines the group’s commitment to this increasingly popular region and Japan as a whole.

Together, Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon currently fly to six destinations in Japan, and the addition of Tokushima to the network gives customers a new region of the country to explore. Open-jaw tickets are available through the Cathay Pacific website, meaning customers can also choose to fly to Tokushima and return to Hong Kong from another Japanese gateway (or vice versa).

Cathay Pacific chief customer and commercial officer, Paul Loo, said: “Our routes to Japan are performing extremely well for us and we are very pleased to be able to offer our customers with a new destination in this most beautiful, dynamic and culturally-rich of countries.

“Growing our reach to places that aren’t already served from Hong Kong boosts the city’s status as Asia’s largest international hub and enables us to capture new and important sources of revenue.”

Already this year, the Cathay Pacific Group has launched services to Brussels, Copenhagen, Dublin, Nanning and Jinan. Other new routes to take-off this year include Washington DC (on 15 September), Davao City, Medan (both October) and Cape Town (November). - TradeArabia News Service
