Cathay Pacific Airways to unveil Asian regional business class in few months
Cathay Pacific Airways recently announced it will be introducing regional business class flights to Asian destinations in the next few months.
The airline in a statement said that despite the economic turmoil in the U.S. and Europe it has every reason to be bullish about the growth in business travelers in Asia.
Ivan Chu Kwok-leung, Chief Operating Officer of Cathay Pacific Airways, said that the airline will now brace itself to cope up with the challenges being faced in declining markets in the West. He said that the airline will remain focused on the more lucrative regional business travel in Asia.
Announcing the decision to open up regional business class routes of between one- to five-hour flights in Asia in few months, Chu said that the airline will emphasize more on the “premium” rather than the class.
Earlier, Cathay Pacific Airways had in December 2011 introduced its premium business class fully developed in Hong Kong. The airline recently won the “World’s Best Business Class” award during the Skytrax World Airline Awards program held annually.
