Cathay Pacific Airways announced that it will increase the number of flights to Jeddah from four times a week to daily from 28 March in response to market demand. The airline launched its service to Saudi Arabia’s second major commercial city last October.

With the additional flights it will operate a total of 14 flights a week to the Kingdom, including a daily service to the country’s capital, Riyadh.

In addition, Cathay Pacific is responding to high demand to Sapporo during the summer holiday season, increasing the frequency from four flights a week to daily in July and August. The additional flights to Sapporo will provide more convenience for leisure travellers planning trips to the increasingly popular Hokkaido region.
