Cathay Pacific adds Brussels to its network
August 31, 2017: Cathay Pacific will begin operating nonstop service to Hong Kong from Brussels Airport from March 25, 2018.
Following direct flights to Beijing, Tokyo, Bangkok, Shanghai and Mumbai, Brussels Airport is further strengthening its Asian network. Brussels Airport will be the 13th direct European destination in Cathay Pacific’s network.
The Hong Kong-based airline will operate four flights a week from Brussels Airport using an Airbus A350, on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
The negotiations with Cathay Pacific started over three years ago and got in a final stage in the summer of 2017.
“Passengers departing from Brussels Airport will not only benefit from a nonstop service to Hong Kong but also from the numerous connections to the wide Asian and Pacific region which Cathay Pacific provides from its hub in Hong Kong. This is an important step in the development of direct connections between Belgium and Asia,” says Arnaud Feist, CEO of Brussels Airport Company.
Rupert Hogg, chief executive officer, Cathay Pacific, said, “We listened to our customers’ demands for more options and greater flexibility and have responded by building direct air links with this great city.”
Last year, about 50,000 passengers travelled between Hong Kong and Belgium. The direct route to Hong Kong holds a huge potential for Belgian business travellers who place Hong Kong as the number 1 most wanted destination as it offers convenient onward connections to China, the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Australia, etc.
Currently, 11 percent of Belgian export is going to Asia and the trend is on the up.
