    Third nonstop flight from JFK to Hong Kong starts three times weekly March 28; Becomes daily May 2
    Cathay Pacific Airways launches a third nonstop flight to Hong Kong from New York’s JFK International Airport this coming Monday.

    The new flight will operate on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays starting March 28. Return service from Hong Kong will operate on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Both flights will go daily in early May.

    At that time, Cathay Pacific will operate three daily nonstop flights from New York JFK to Hong Kong plus an additional daily service from the airport to Vancouver, Canada, with continuing service to Hong Kong. The new daily flight will add 2,100 more seats a week to Asia’s financial capital.

    Thanks, but the thread title could be revised. You should mention HKG-JFK.

    good news. with ORD and JFK gives more options to HKG from the east and gives AC a run for its money with its AC16/15 route out of YYZ that is one of its most profitable.

    Plus the CX YYZ-HKG flights are amazing for their award space. Bring on that CX capacity to North America. Love it!

    That came in very handy even though i have to book a seperate trip to Canada to catch it. Now if only the added capacity to the eact coast would cause more award availability to show up
