Hong Kong airline Cathay Pacific will add a fifth daily service between Hong Kong and London's Heathrow airport from June 27. The new service will help bolster one of the region's busiest long-haul routes. The airline will operate a Boring 777-300ER aircraft on the route, with a mix of First, Business, Premium Exonomy and Economy Class seating. Premium Economy Class (pictured) continues to grow in popularity on the London route and the new flight will add approximately 1,000 extra Premium Economy Class seats each way to the market every month.

“We are offering our customers the best of all worlds,” says Cathay Pacific Chief Executive John Slosar. “First, products that are second to none including our new long-haul Business Class, winner of the Skytrax Best Business Class in the world award. Second, people and service that have earned us recognition as a five-star airline. And third, the choice to travel when it is convenient with multiple frequencies throughout the day.”

In addition to the 35 frequencies a week to London the new flight brings, Cathay Pacific offers 25 flights a week to New York City and 17 to Los Angeles. Both routes are planned to gain additional frequencies in 2013.
