Cathay Pacific will launch non-stop services linking Hong Kong with Brussels, Dublin and Copenhagen starting this summer, expanding the airline's network to 15 European destinations served by direct flights from Hong Kong. The services to Brussels and Dublin will operate four times a week, whilst flights to Copenhagen will operate seasonally on a three-times-weekly basis from May to October. The airline will also launch a four-times-weekly service to Washington, D.C. for the first time in September. Operated by the all-new Airbus A350-1000 aircraft, the new service will become the longest on the Cathay Pacific network in terms of distance.
