Cathay Pacific Offers More Choice and Flexibility for New York-AREA Travel With Launch of Newark Service

Newark Marks Airline's Fifth Daily Departure From Tri-State Area

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - August 13, 2013) - Cathay Pacific Airways today announced that it will launch a new daily service from Newark Liberty International Airport to Hong Kong on March 1, 2014, subject to government approval. The new service will complement Cathay Pacific's current four-times-daily service from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in New York. The launch of the Newark service will provide more convenience and greater flexibility for passengers traveling to and from the New York metropolitan area.

The Newark service will be operated by Boeing 777-300ER aircraft featuring Cathay Pacific's new cabin products, including the awarding-winning Business Class, Premium Economy Class and the new Economy Class seats. Together with the special service provided by Cathay Pacific's cabin crew, recently named the "World's Best Cabin Staff" by Skytrax, and a state-of-the-art inflight entertainment system in all classes, passengers will be provided with the best experience when they travel between Hong Kong and Newark.

Cathay Pacific Senior Vice President, Americas, Tom Owen said, "The introduction of Cathay Pacific's Newark to Hong Kong service demonstrates our commitment to the New York Metropolitan area, which has been instrumental in the development of our North American operations. We are dedicated to offering even more choice and flexibility for Tri-state residents, and we constantly raise the bar on our passengers' experience through impeccable service, superior in-flight amenities and products."

Newark will become Cathay Pacific's fifth gateway in the United States, and seventh in North America. The airline currently serves Chicago, Los Angeles, New York (JFK), San Francisco, Toronto and Vancouver.
