Hong Kong’s Cathay Pacific will once again resume its daily flights between Singapore and Bangkok starting 31 March 2024.
CX712 will depart from Singapore’s Changi airport daily at 1325 for arrival into Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi airport at 1515 local time.
In the opposite direction, CX717 will leave Bangkok at 1155 and arrive in Singapore at 1525.
Cathay has rostered a two-class Airbus A330-300 on the route, with 39 seats in 1-2-1 business class, and 223 in 2-4-2 economy class.
In addition to this fifth freedom service, Cathay Pacific currently operates up to eight flights a day from Singapore to Hong Kong.
Separately, Cathay recently announced its return to Barcelona this summer, and it resumed its services to Chennai and Colombo, respectively, earlier this month.
“As a Group, we made significant progress in our rebuild journey in 2023. As we look ahead to 2024, we remain committed to working towards fully rebuilding our flights, with the aim of delivering the high-quality and reliable services that Hong Kong deserves. Despite the ongoing challenges that are affecting the entire global aviation industry, we are prepared to face them, as always, with determination.
“The Lunar New Year is approaching, and this will mark another peak travel period when people celebrate and visit loved ones. We anticipate strong demand from late January until the end of the Lunar New Year holiday. Looking further ahead, we are also delighted to announce that our popular Barcelona service will resume in June, and we look forward to welcoming customers onboard,” Cathay Chief Customer and Commercial Officer, Lavinia Lau, recently said.
