Cathay Pacific Airways said it has launched a new daily service from Newark Liberty International Airport to Hong Kong with a first flight celebration that included a lion dance and traditional roast pig cutting ceremony.
The new service complements Cathay Pacific´s current four-times-daily service from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in New York. The launch of the Newark service provides more convenience and greater flexibility for passengers traveling to and from the New York metropolitan area.
The Newark service is operated by Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
Cathay Pacific Airways flies daily to Hong Kong and beyond, including over 22 destinations in Mainland China, from Chicago, Los Angeles, New York (JFK), and San Francisco.
