Cathay Pacific Increases Capacity to Indonesia

Increase Direct Seats From Indonesia to Hong Kong Expected to Boost Access to Mainland China Market.

(11/29/2005) Cathay Pacific Airways (CX) has increased seat capacity and improved flight connections between its Hong Kong base and Indonesia, hoping to capitalize on the fast-expanding business relationships developing between mainland China and Indonesia.

CX's senior management recently announced an increase in capacity of 150 seats to Indonesia, achieved by changing its Jakarta-Singapore-Hong Kong service into a direct flight between Jakarta and Hong Kong.

CX operates a total of 29 flights each week from Indonesia to Hong Kong: two flights each day from Jakarta, four times a week from Surabaya, and eleven times a week from Bali. Flying to 90 destinations world-wide, the airline offers Indonesian travelers with business in China onward connections to 44 mainland destinations.

According to Cathay’s Country Manager for Indonesia, Richard Reed, quoted in The Jakarta Post, his airline is now operating at capacities representing a 100% increase from those of just a decade before, in the mid 1990s.
