A show-stopping destination deserves a show-stopping method of arrival.

As of March 28, 2017, you’ll be able to travel to Hong Kong in exquisite comfort on a direct flight from YVR in Cathay Pacific’s luxurious new A350-900 plane, which is making its debut in Canada.

With a draft-free air circulation system, large panoramic windows, oversized overhead storage lockers and LED mood lighting, the A350’s innovative cabin was designed to provide you with the most pleasant sleep, entertainment and lounge experience possible.

The draft-free air circulation system reduces noise in the cabin. Lower cabin altitude and LED mood lighting (which changes colour based on flight phases) is designed to help reduce jet lag, ensuring you’re ready to explore Hong Kong as soon as you land. And seven independent temperature zones in the cabin allow for precise adjustment so the temperature is always where you want it to be.

If you can’t wait until the hotel to begin sharing photos of their trip, you’ll be able to stay connected on your devices with the Cathay Pacific Wi-Fi portal (for a small fee). Using the larger touch screen HD monitors, you can connect and enjoy the new inflight entertainment system and watch on-demand films. Read up on fun destinations in Hong Kong and even see a real-time visual of the view from the flight deck in the head’s up display.

The roomy, bright business class seats on the A350

 

Although every passenger on the A350 will be able to enjoy the spacious cabin and incredible entertainment, there are some exclusive perks in each of the cabin classes.

Business class

What, you don’t love cozying up to strangers in a crowded plane in order to catch a few z’s? That experience is in your past now. In Business class, the flexible seat can stretch up to 75” to accommodate all kinds of sleeping positions, and soft-textured cotton pillows and linen blankets are available to keep things cozy. The extra space also helps you avoid bedhead on the way to an important meeting. You can find ‘Do Not Disturb’ and ‘Wake Up Call’ buttons in the inflight entertainment system, allowing you to personalize how long you sleep and when you’d like to wake up.

Premium Economy class

Lounge in optimal comfort in Premium Economy class by taking advantage of each seat’s poly-cotton pillows and blankets and the fully integrated leg rest with a leather padded footrest. An enlarged amenities storage compartment holds all your items with ease and the retractable armrests and slide-out cocktail table enhance the amount of personal space available. Introduced for the first time in Premium Economy, an adjustable personal reading light allows you to read at your leisure, and the convenient in-seat power and USB ports will help you stay connected during the flight.

Economy class

A seat in Economy class inside Cathay Pacific’s new A350-900 will be your home away from home during the flight. The six-way leather headrest hugs your head to enhance comfort and support during the long flight, and dedicated tablet holders and power and USB outlets make it easy for you to enjoy entertainment on your devices and keep them charged at the same time. The enhanced tray table, cup holder and new tray designs will make it easier to enjoy delicious meals, along with the addition of a long condiment bowl, aluminum napkin ring and non-skid coating.

With the A350’s new innovative technology, luxurious comfortable amenities and spacious cabin, you definitely won’t regret booking your next flight to Hong Kong with Cathay Pacific. Learn more about how it will transform the way you travel on their website.
