Move strengthens Hong Kong’s role as a hub for the Belt & Road initiative

Cathay Pacific has announced the launch of direct passenger flights to Riyadh, the capital and financial centre of Saudi Arabia, from 28 October 2024, further enhancing connectivity, trade and cultural exchange between its home hub, Hong Kong, and countries participating in the Belt and Road Initiative.

Cathay Pacific marked the announcement with a recent signing ceremony in Hong Kong, attended and witnessed by Hong Kong SAR Secretary for Transport and Logistics Lam Sai-hung; the Consul General of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in Hong Kong SAR, Hamad Aljebreen; Cathay Group Chief Executive Officer Ronald Lam and Saudi Air Connectivity Programme Chief Executive Officer Majid Khan.

“This new service will offer more travel options and greater convenience for our customers travelling to and from Saudi Arabia, as well as promote opportunities for business, trade and tourism,” stated Lam.

“We will continue to develop flight services along our existing major routes as well as routes connecting Hong Kong with Belt and Road countries and regions, as we look ahead to the full operation of the Three-Runway System at Hong Kong International Airport,” he continued.

“We welcome Cathay Pacific, one of the premium carriers, to Saudi Arabia and look forward to mutually developing the potential in years to come,” remarked Khan.

Cathay Pacific will operate three return flights per week between Hong Kong and Riyadh using its modern Airbus A350-900 aircraft, featuring Business, Premium Economy and Economy cabins.
