  • Cathay Pacific to Offer Flights to Seattle in 2019
  • Starting March 31, 2019, fly directly to the fastest growing city in the United West Coast as Cathay Pacific will commence a new nonstop flight service from Hong Kong to scenic Seattle in Northern America, making it the only airline that offers the long-haul trip.

    With their new and exciting offer, Cathay Pacific Chief Executive Officer Rupert Hogg and the entire crew are very pleased to introduce Seattle. “There are strong business, trade, and cultural ties between Hong Kong and the city and we believe there will be considerable demand for both business and leisure travel on this new route,” he enthused.

    The Hong Kong flag carrier will be traversing Seattle four times a week through the state-of-the-art aircraft Airbus A350-900, one of the quietest and most environmentally friendly aircraft in the sky. Apart from a relaxing ambiance, it also offers comfortable seating, an enhanced in-flight entertainment system, and Wi-Fi connectivity across all cabin classes.

    Dubbed as the “The Emerald City,” Seattle is the fourth largest export market in the United States and a thriving tech hub, home to a burgeoning startup scene. Megabrands Amazon, Microsoft, and Starbucks are all headquartered here, while Boeing, the world’s largest aerospace company, is synonymous with the city and has its commercial aircraft manufacturing base in nearby Everett.

    Seattle is also a fantastic place to visit for discerning travelers. Known for its year-round greenery, the city offers beautiful and lush hiking trails for lovers of the outdoors, as well as magnificent views of Puget Sound, Lake Washington and Mount Rainier from the observation deck atop Seattle’s iconic Space Needle.

    “We have developed a significant presence in the United States and the launch of Seattle not only reaffirms our commitment to the important North American market but also to strengthening Hong Kong’s status as Asia’s largest international aviation hub,” Hogg added.

    Cathay Pacific currently serves Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York (JFK), New York (Newark), San Francisco, Toronto, and Vancouver, while a new flight service to Washington, DC, will commence on September 15, 2018.
