A four-time weekly flight path between Hong Kong and Manchester will launch next week with Cathay Pacific Airlines. The non-stop direct connection between Hong Kong and Manchester, which celebrates its inaugural flight on Monday 8 December, is anticipated to cultivate stronger links between the UK, Hong Kong and mainland China. Passengers will get more choice and flexibility for their travels whilst enhancing Manchester’s status as an international transport and business hub.
Inbound flights will arrive in Manchester from Hong Kong at 0620, every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Outbound flights will depart from Manchester the same day at 1200 and will arrive in Hong Kong at 0755 every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.
The new route is expected to stimulate economic growth in the North West and meet the increasing demand for air travel to and from the Asia Pacific region.
