Cathay Pacific will launch direct services from Hong Kong to Zurich from 29 March 2015.

The daily services will be operated by four-class configured Boeing 777-300ERs.

Innovata schedules show that Cathay will compete with Swiss Air Lines on the route.

“Cathay Pacific already has a significant presence in Europe and this new destination will help meet demand for both business and leisure travel between Switzerland and Hong Kong," says chief operating officer Ivan Chu. "The launch of Zurich, together with the recently announced introduction of flights to Manchester, highlights our ongoing commitment to helping strengthen Hong Kong’s position as one of the world’s great international aviation hubs.”

Cathay will commence its four-ties weekly Manchester services on 8 December.
