Cathay Pacific Airways announced an expansion of its presence in Europe with a service to Düsseldorf beginning 1 September 2015 (subject to government approval). Düsseldorf will become the airline’s second destination in Germany, after Frankfurt, and marks the latest enhancement to its Europe network following the launch of Manchester in December 2014 and Zurich, which will commence operations in March. Cathay Pacific will operate the new service using a B777-300ER aircraft.
Cathay Pacific chief executive Ivan Chu said: “We are very pleased to further expand our European network by launching this new Düsseldorf service. This latest destination launch also underscores Cathay Pacific’s ongoing commitment to building Hong Kong’s position as one of the world’s great international aviation hubs.”
