Cathay Pacific announced that its current four-times-weekly Hong Kong to Manchester service will become a daily operation from December 1, 2017.

The airline had announced in March that it would be increasing the number of weekly flights to the northern English city to six by the end of the year. However, it has boosted frequency further in response to growing customer demand.

From June onwards, the Airbus A350-900 will replace the Boeing 777-300ER on all flights to Manchester, making it the second Cathay Pacific destination in the UK, after Gatwick, to receive the technologically-advanced aircraft, the airline statement said.

"The enhanced schedule will provide business and leisure travellers with more choice and greater flexibility in planning their trips for added convenience, while at the same time strengthening Hong Kong's position as Asia's leading aviation hub,” said Cathay Pacific director corporate development and IT Paul Loo.

Cathay Pacific, already the largest operator of flights between Hong Kong and the UK, is committed to growing its reach in its longest serving long-haul market.

The airline serves London Heathrow with five daily flights, while Gatwick, currently a four-times-weekly service, will go daily from June 1.
