Cathay adds flights to India

HONG KONG, 10 August 2022: Cathay Pacific will add flights to Mumbai and Delhi during September as it gradually restores services to India.

In its latest timetable update for flights to India scheduled for September, the airline adds two flights to Mumbai (Monday 26 September and Tuesday 27 September) on top of the twice-weekly flights operating every Friday and Sunday.

On the route to Delhi, the airline adds a one-off service on Monday, 26 September, while maintaining its four weekly flights throughout the month on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

The Delhi-bound flight (CX2679) departs Hong Kong at 0810 and arrives in Delhi at 1155. Flight time on the Boeing 777-300ER is six hours and 15 minutes. The roundtrip airfare in the cheapest category is HKD6,384. The return flight (CX2694) departs Delhi at 1315 and arrives in Hong Kong at 2135. Flight time is five hours and 40 minutes.

The Mumbai-bound flight (CX2663) departs Hong Kong at 0810 and arrives in Mumbai at 1135. Flight time on the Boeing 777-300ER is five hours and 55 minutes. The roundtrip airfare in the cheapest category is HKD6,118. The return flight (CX2660) departs Mumbai at 1325 and arrives in Hong Kong at 2150. Flight time is five hours and 55 minutes.

Travel demand between Hong Kong and India remains low due to travel restrictions and quarantine requirements in Hong Kong and China.

However, the airline is counting on the cut in the mandatory hotel quarantine from seven to three days starting Friday, 12 August, to boost bookings. However, as long as the four-day homestay under medical surveillance requirement is enforced, flights between Hong Kong and India will remain well off the pre-Covid-19 frequencies.
