Cathay Pacific Country Manager Korea Clarence Chung said: “We are delighted to be able to provide even more flight options for business and leisure travellers going to Hong Kong and beyond with this new flight. We are also seeing rapid growth in the popularity of Korea as a holiday destination, and this additional service will help to bring more tourists into the country.”
