“Turning to March and beyond, we are making good progress in increasing our capacity and rebuilding connectivity at the Hong Kong international aviation hub.
“By the end of March, the Cathay Group will be operating approximately 50% of pre-pandemic passenger flight capacity, covering more than 70 destinations.
“We continue to add more flights to our schedule, in particular for some of our most popular destinations.
“London will start to see five return flights a day on select days from April.
“For Japan, we plan to step up from the current 73 to 120 return flights per week by the summer peak.
“Meanwhile, for the Chinese mainland, we aim to operate more than 110 return flights per week to 15 cities by the end of this month, including resuming services to Shanghai Hongqiao airport, which will be welcomed by business travellers, and Haikou.
