Cathay Pacific Resumes Services To Kuala Lumpur
Hong Kong based airline Cathay Pacific has resumed services to Kuala Lumpur from 24 November 2020. Cathay Pacific stopped flying to Kuala Lumpur in mid 2017 and handed flights over to its regional arm Dragonair, the predecessor to Cathay Dragon. Last month Cathay Pacific decided to shutdown Cathay Dragon to consolidate staff, network, and aircrafts due to the drop of travel demand because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Flight Schedule Between Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong
|Kuala Lumpur – Hong Kong||Tue||CX724||1750||2150|
|Hong Kong – Kuala Lumpur||Tue||CX725||1245||1650|
Flights between Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong will be operated using the Airbus A330 aircraft in a two-class configuration – Business and Economy class. Frequencies are expected to increase as travel restarts and travelers gain confidence to travel again.
Cathay Dragon Shutdown
Cathay Dragon had some 50 destinations across Asia with half being in mainland China. With Cathay Dragon shutdown, the routes will be split between Cathay Pacific for premium traffic and HK Express, Cathay’s low-cost arm. The airline has applied to the different authorities in Hong Kong and overseas to secure approvals to continue flying to Cathay Dragon destinations.
