A passenger plane from Cathay Pacific Airways arrives at Changi International Airport Terminal 4 in Singapore on September 13, 2022, after its closure for more than two years due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. ROSLAN RAHMAN AFP HONG KONG Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd said it plans to add more than 200 pairs of passenger flights in October to both regional and long-haul destinations.
The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region government said on September 26 it will scrap its COVID 19 hotel quarantine policy for all arrivals from Sept 26.
Cathay said in a statement that we will continue to add more flights as soon as possible, but it will take time to rebuild our capacity.
