Cathay Pacific to Boost Flights between Hong Kong & Mumbai

British travellers planning to book flights tickets for business or leisure trips to Hong Kong with an en route stopover at India will have added options to sample an incredible slice of stimulating cultural experiences at Mumbai. 

Hong Kong’s flag carrier, Cathay Pacific is all set to increase its frequency between India’s financial capital, Mumbai and Hong Kong. The carrier will offer tickets on three additional services on this popular travel sector with effect from April 2, 2013. Presently, the airline offers tickets on seven weekly non-stop flights arriving in Mumbai, India. 

Besides, the airline also plans to introduce its Premium Economy Class on India bound flights arriving in Mumbai in India from Hong Kong from March 2013. Earlier in 2012, the airline launched its Premium Economy Class on its flights connecting Chennai and Delhi in India. With its premium economy class being only 30 percent more costlier than economy class tickets, the airline plans to tap the increasingly higher number of flyers who prefer value for money proposition over cheap airfares. 

Boeing 747-400 aircraft is deployed to offer tickets on its seven weekly flights in a four-class configuration. Airbus A330-300 will be used with three classes to offer tickets on the three additional flights arriving in Mumbai, India. 

Presently, Cathay Pacific operates services from Hong Kong to Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai and Hyderabad, while its sister airline Dragonair offers tickets on flights arriving in Bangalore and Kolkata, India. Together with Dragonair, the Cathay Pacific now offers tickets on 46 weekly services from six cities in India.
