UPDATE: Cathay Pacific expands special repatriation procedures

Cathay Pacific Airways has expanded the special repatriation rate to include CX and Dragonair flights to Hong Kong from all seven airports in Japan served by the carrier – Haneda and Narita in Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Sapporo, Fukuoka and Okinawa – and has extended re-booking and re-routing guidelines.

As reported earlier (see story here), the special rate of HK$5,755 (US$738) for one-way tickets was introduced on March 12 and will be on sale until March 20, 2011, for passengers without any confirmed bookings.

Additionally, the carrier has updated and extended its re-booking and re-routing guidelines. All rebooking and re-routing charges worldwide have been waived for tickets issued on or before March 11 involving Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Sapporo, Fukuoka and Osaka until June 30, 2011.

Requests for re-routing must be made before March 31, 2011 and revised travel dates should fall within the extended travel period between now and June 30, 2011. Re-routing is available to 14 cities around Asia: Shanghai, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Changsha, Wuhan, Bangkok, Phuket, Kota Kinabalu, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Seoul, Busan, Taipei and Kaohsiung.

After Narita and Haneda Airports began operations again on March 12, 2011, Cathay Pacific resumed flights according to its normal schedule, operating all seven flights to both airports.
