Cathay Pacific Airways new daily service from Newark to Hong Kong

Cathay Pacific Airways launched a new daily service from Newark Liberty International Airport to Hong Kong on Sunday with a first flight celebration that included a lion dance and traditional roast pig cutting ceremony.

The new service complements Cathay Pacific's current four-times-daily service from John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York. “The launch of the Newark service provides more convenience and greater flexibility for passengers traveling to and from the New York metropolitan area,” the airline said in a press statement.

The Newark service is operated by Boeing 777-300ER aircraft featuring Cathay Pacific's new cabin products, including the awarding-winning Business Class, Premium Economy Class and the new Economy Class seats.

Cathay Pacific Senior Vice President, Americas, Tom Owen said, "The introduction of Cathay Pacific's Newark to Hong Kong service demonstrates our commitment to the New York Metropolitan area, which has been instrumental in the development of our North American operations.”

Newark is Cathay Pacific's fifth gateway in the United States, and seventh in North America. The airline currently serves Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Toronto and Vancouver.

Cathay Pacific Airways flies daily to Hong Kong and beyond, including over 22 destinations in mainland China, from Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco.
