Cathay Pacific A350 Heading for Copenhagen

The highly respected Cathay Pacific is in the process of massively expanding its European route network, already announcing new direct services to Dublin and Brussels. However that expansion doesn't stop there, for the Hong Kong based airline has also announced a new direct route, using one of its state of the art Airbus A350 aircraft to the Danish capital of Copenhagen.


The airline said it will be operating a pioneering non-stop route to the city, further strengthening the airline’s network and providing new trade and tourism opportunities between Asia and Europe.

Cathay Pacific Chief Executive Officer Rupert Hogg said that the announced services will meet customer demand for non-stop travel, while at the same time providing Europe-based passengers with more convenient access to key destinations in Asia and Southwest Pacific through the airline’s home in Hong Kong.

Copenhagen is considered to be Scandinavia’s capital of cool by many and is a beautiful thriving eco-friendly metropolis with a small-town feel. The breathtakingly beautiful harbour is a must-see for any tourist or visitor and the perfect place to sit and 'people-watch' over the rim of a beer glass!. The lifelong home of fairy tale writer Hans Christian Andersen, Copenhagen has been named the world’s most liveable city on numerous occasions. The popularity of this charming city has risen dramatically over the last few years, thanks in part to being featured in European hit TV series like Borgen, The Killing and The Bridge. Denmark’s cultural centre will be served by a three-times weekly seasonal service between 2 May and 12 October 2018.

“We’re excited to offer the only direct flights between Hong Kong and Copenhagen, These are all fantastic destinations and attract business and leisure travellers from the world over. We listened to our customers’ demands for more options and greater flexibility and have responded by building direct air links” said Mr Hogg.

“Growing our reach to new destinations that aren’t served from Hong Kong boosts the city’s status as Asia’s largest international hub and enables us to capture new and important sources of revenue.”

Following the recent launch of services to Gatwick, Madrid and Barcelona, Cathay Pacific’s European expansion continues. With the commencement of the new routes, the airline’s network will cover 15 European destinations served direct from Hong Kong.


Cathay Pacific’s long-haul fleet of aircraft averages just five years of age, making it one of the youngest in the industry. The new Copenhagen seasonal service will be operated by Cathay Pacific’s state-of-the-art Airbus A350-900 aircraft, which feature the latest seats and cabin design and which have been especially well-received by the airline’s customers. All flights to the home of the 'Little Mermaid'  will be equipped with the aircraft’s enhanced inflin-flightertainment system and Wi-Fi on board.  

Cathay Pacific has in operation 18 of the 22 A350-900s it has on order, with the remaining four aircraft due for delivery before the end of 2017. Additionally, the airline has 26 of the larger A350-1000 type scheduled to join its fleet from 2018. These environmentally friendly and fuel-efficient aircraft allow Cathay Pacific to open up new markets not otherwise served from Hong Kong.
