CX to fly direct to Colombo

11 Aug 2014 by Clement Huang

Cathay Pacific (CX) will start operating direct flights to Colombo (CMB) starting from October 27, whilst maintaining its current services to the Sri Lankan city via a stopover in Bangkok.

This will represent a significant service upgrade by the Hong Kong-based carrier as, in addition to the existing three-times weekly HKG-BKK-CMB service, CX will also offer four non-stop flights per week to Colombo. This effectively means that the carrier will serve Sri Lanka with daily flights.

The new direct services will be operated by an Airbus A330-300 featuring a three-class cabin configuration, with 39 seats in business, 28 in premium economy and 175 in economy.

Despite being a regional route, CX will be offering its popular long-haul business class product, as opposed to its regional business seat. For our Tried & Tested reviews of both products, see here and here. To subscribe to Business Traveller Asia-Pacific, click here.
