Cathay Pacific are set to add more capacity between Queensland and Hong Kong to meet growing demand.

The airline will replace its current four times weekly one-stop service to Brisbane via Cairns with direct flights to both cities from late October 2017 to March 2018.

The switch means that Queensland’s capital will receive 11 non-stop flights from Hong Kong each week, while Cairns will be served non-stop three times a week.

The direct services will depart at new times to provide better connections for passengers travelling on the flights that previously made one stop before in each direction.

CX103 departs Hong Kong at 9.25pm and arrives in Cairns at 06.35am the next morning.

In addition to the new non-stop flights which will be serviced by A330’s, Brisbane’s existing daily flight will be served by the A350 from 26 March 2017.
