MANAMA: Cathay Pacific Airways on Sunday announced adjustments to its Middle East network, effective March 30 this year.
The new Middle East summer schedule takes into effective from March 30th 2014, subject to governments approvals.
Bahrain will be served with a daily flight via Dubai. This is an increase of three flights every week over the existing schedule. The two daily flights between Hong Kong and Dubai will remain unchanged.
“Bahrain will now enjoy a daily service to Hong Kong. This service enhancement between Bahrain and Hong Kong, demonstrates Cathay Pacific’s long-term commitment to the Kingdom of Bahrain and the local community,” Thomas Bellamy, Country Manager for Bahrain and Saudi Arabia said.
From 2 May 2014 to 20 July 2014, a temporary rerouting of the CX745 Hong Kong-Dubai-Bahrain service will be required due to a partial runway closure at Dubai International Airport for maintenance. During this period, the flight will be changed to a Hong Kong-Abu Dhabi-Bahrain routing. Alternative arrangements are also being made for passengers who have booked on this flight during this period. There is no change for the return Bahrain-Dubai-Hong Kong CX746 flight.
Cathay Pacific remains committed to serving the Middle East and will continue to identify opportunities to strengthen its services to and from the region.
Cathay Pacific and Dragonair (a wholly owned subsidiary), with our extensive network in Mainland China and other Asian cities, will continue to bring Asia a step closer to the community in the Middle East.
