Cathay Pacific will adjust its services to the Middle East, effective 30 March.

The carrier says it will end its Hong Kong-Abu Dhabi and Hong Kong-Jeddah services, citing commercial reasons.

A five times weekly nonstop Hong Kong-Riyadh service will be introduced, replacing the existing one stop option via Abu Dhabi and Bahrain. As part of the change, its four times weekly Hong Kong-Riyadh-Bahrain route will be converted into a daily Hong Kong-Dubai-Bahrain service.

The airline’s twice daily Hong Kong-Dubai service will remain unchanged, it adds.

Flightglobal’s FlightMaps Analytics shows that Cathay Pacific flies to Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Dubai, Jeddah and Riyadh. The airline deploys Airbus A330-300 aircraft on its services to the Middle East.
