Cathay Pacific reduces frequency of Japan flights

30 Mar 2011

Cathay Pacific Airways will temporarily suspend certain flights to and from Japan to adjust to the weakening travel demand to the country between April 1 and 15.

Currently, the carrier operates seven daily flights to and from Tokyo. The planned suspension will bring that down to four daily flights to Tokyo and five daily flights from Tokyo. Flights CX520 and CX524 to Narita and CX542 to Haneda will be suspended. Flights CX501 and CX521 from Narita to Hong Kong will also be suspended.

Additionally, the daily flight CX567 from Osaka to Hong Kong has also been suspended. From April 3 onwards, CX536 from Nagoya and CX535 from Hong Kong to Nagoya will also be grounded.

Flights to and from Fukuoka and Sapporo are not affected.

Tom Owen, general manager revenue management for Cathay Pacific, said: “We are monitoring the demand situation to and from Tokyo and other Japanese points closely and will make adjustments based on anticipated demand levels going forward.”
