Cathay Pacific Airways increases services from San Francisco by adding three weekly flights from San Francisco International Airport to Hong Kong, bringing the total number of non-stop weekly flights from San Francisco to 17. San Francisco was the airline's first destination for non-stop service to the USA which launched in 1986.
The added frequencies from San Francisco arrive on the heels of Cathay Pacific's new four-times-weekly service from Boston to Hong Kong, which launched on May 3, 2015.
Flight CX893 from San Francisco to Hong Kong departs every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 1:30 am, arriving in Hong Kong the following day at 6:40 am. This early morning arrival was strategically coordinated to allow passengers to connect with every Cathay Pacific flight across Asia – including Singapore, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, and over 22 gateways in mainland China – without a lengthy layover in Hong Kong. The return flight, CX892, will depart Hong Kong at 6:45 pm (local time) on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, arriving in San Francisco at 4:30 pm (same day).
All of Cathay Pacific's 17 flights from San Francisco are operated by Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. Flight CX893 offers a three-class cabin configuration on Wednesdays and Fridays: the award-winning Business Class, the newest cabin, Premium Economy, and the new long-haul Economy Class; Sunday departures also include First Class for a four-cabin configuration.
