Asian airline Cathay Pacific is set to return to South Africa.
The Hong Kong-based airline will start operating again from Johannesburg and there will be three flights per week.
Anand Yedery, Cathay Pacific’s regional marketing and sales head said the crew is excited to welcome South Africans on board.
“We are eager to not only welcome our customers from South Africa to experience our warm Asian culture, but also the comfort and efficiency when travelling onboard the Airbus A350-900.”
Engineering News reports that the airline’s A350-900s are configured with 280 seats in three classes. These are business class (38 seats), premium economy class (28 seats) and economy class (214 seats).
Yedery went on to say that now that Covid is a thing of the past, they’re eager to help people get to their destination, no matter the reason.
“With the removal of travel restrictions into Hong Kong and the Chinese mainland, and with our connections to popular Asian destinations, we can aid customers to fulfil all their travel plans – whether it is to reunite with their loved ones or take that much-awaited holiday or for business.”
