Cathay Pacific launches new Moscow flights

Cathay Pacific Airways launched its thrice-weekly service to Moscow on 1 September. Speaking at the Gala dinner which followed Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Donald Tsang said the timing of the launch couldn’t be better. The number of travellers in both directions increased significantly since the introduction of reciprocal visa-free travel arrangements between Russia and Hong Kong last year, our economy rebounded fairly strongly from the global financial crisis in the first half of this year, and bilateral trade between Hong Kong and Russia more than doubled in the first six months compared to last year.
