    Details have not yet been officially announced by the airline.

    It’s good news for readers in the Northwest with the increased Manchester schedule effective from this coming winter.

    Until now (1200 hrs June 14) Cathay Pacific has yet to update its website Cathaypacific.com to reflect the increased schedules.

    But work must be taking place behind the scenes as no availability (either non-stop MAN-HKG or via LHR) is displayed after November 11.

    its very unlikely that there would be a tag on the route via LHR or any change to the current 4 times a week schedule soon.

    Until now Cathay has yet to announce the increase.

    But it’s understood the winter schedule will consist of a daily non-stop flight. It’s currently four flights a week.

    Behind the scenes staff at Cathay must be making adjustments to the schedule display.

    As I write this on Wednesday evening I see that the website now displays availability after November 11.

    However it does look as though the daily flight has not yet been added to the display.

    My understanding Alex is that the route will go back to daily towards year end – there is certainly the demand .

    Now open for booking.

    Cathay Pacific’s website shows a 50 per cent increase in flight frequency effective September 23, 2024.

    So, assuming there will be no changes, it means an increase from four to six weekly flights.

    According to Manchester Aviation society Nov newsletter, Cathay are to resume daily flights to HK from summer 24.

    The daily service was announced in HK some months back and is as I understand it from early March.
