Cathay increases frequency of Adelaide flights

25 Sep 2015 by Clement Huang

Cathay Pacific will increase the seasonal frequency of its flights between Hong Kong and Adelaide from December 2015.

The Hong Kong-based carrier currently serves the Australian city four times a week (Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday out of Hong Kong) but will increase this to five flights from December 2, 2015 to March 26, 2016.

The extra flight will operate every Wednesday from Hong Kong and Thursday from Adelaide. Flight CX173 will depart Hong Kong at 1905 and arrive in Adelaide at 0620 the following day. The return service on flight CX174 will then take off from Adelaide at 0745 and touch back down in Hong Kong at 1400.

The frequency increase is not surprising, given that demand for travel to Australia grows during the country’s summer season. Adelaide itself is a popular travel destination, attracting in excess of seven million passengers annually. The city is well served by other regional carriers such as Air New Zealand, Malaysia Airlines and Singapore Airlines.
