The Cathay Pacific Group celebrated the launch of its four-times-weekly service between Hong Kong and Jinan in Shandong province, further strengthening its network in mainland China.
The new service to the ‘City of Springs’ complements the existing ten weekly flights to Qingdao, providing more options for travellers to and from Shandong. The flight is operated by Cathay Dragon’s Airbus A320 aircraft in a two class configuration.
At a ceremony held on March 26, 2018, Cathay Pacific Chief Customer and Commercial Officer Paul Loo expressed his gratitude to the ceremony’s guest of honour, Mr Li Zijun, Deputy Mayor of Jinan City.
2018 is set to be a year of considerable expansion for the Cathay Pacific Group. In addition to Jinan and Nanning in mainland China, new services to Brussels have also been launched, with Copenhagen, Dublin, Washington DC and Cape Town all coming online in the coming months.
