Cathay Pacific Announces Seasonal Flights to Cape Town
Cathay Pacific announced new seasonal flights between Hong Kong (HKG)- Cape Town (CPT) this morning. The A350-900 service will run three times a week from November 13, 2018-February 18, 2019.
Flight CX795 departs Hong Kong on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays at 11:45 PM and arrives in Cape Town at 8:05 AM the following day. Flight CX794 departs Cape Town on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 11:05 AM and arrives in Hong Kong at 6:55 AM the following day.
The A350-900 has 38 Business Class seats, 28 Premium Economy seats, 214 Economy seats. Alaska Airlines miles are the cheapest way to book Cathay Pacific awards. It costs just 62,500 Alaska miles one-way for Cathay Business Class awards between the United States and Africa. That would get you a flight from the US-Hong Kong-Cape Town. Alaska Mileage Plan also allows stopovers on one-way awards. So you could schedule a stop in Hong Kong before continuing to Africa!
