Cathay Pacific To Resume Flights To UK


Cathay Pacific flights from Hong Kong to the UK’s London-Heathrow will resume from 12 January, said the airline in its official release.

As announced by the airline, it will operate flights to Heathrow on 12, 14, 15, 17, 18, 21 and 24 January, “in order to assist customers needing to travel to the UK”.

However, its scheduled flight to Manchester on 15 January has now been cancelled.

And meanwhile, all flights departing from the UK to Hong Kong will continue to be suspended until 25 January in view of the HKSAR Government’s entry restrictions.


As a new COVID-19 virus strain was found in the country, there was a worldwide travel ban to the United Kingdom in mid-December.

The ban was intended to limit the spread of the more transmissible variant. Two weeks later, the rules are gradually being walked back by many countries.

Cathay Pacific understands the importance of providing flexibility to customers so they can book flights more safely. Hnece, customers can change their tickets free of charge and without limit until December 31, 2021 or exchange them for Cathay Credits to use them at a later date.

Alternatively, customers can also cancel their tickets and request a refund.


The airline is also offering free COVID-19 insurance to all passengers traveling on Cathay Pacific flights by February 28, 2021.
