Cathay Pacific Airways has launched its all-new Airbus A350-900 on one of its daily flights between Hong Kong and Melbourne.

Featuring the latest in aviation technology – including advanced aerodynamics, state-of-the-art technology and innovative designs – Cathay Pacific says the A350 takes travelling well to a new level.

From a quieter cabin to LED mood lighting, the new aircraft improves passenger comfort and helps travellers arrive to their destination feeling refreshed.

The A350 also helps keep passengers connected in the sky, with the aircraft also offering the airline’s first inflight WiFi service for Australia travellers.

“We’ve been flying into Melbourne for 40 years and we’re very excited to introduce our first Australian-based Airbus A350 into the Victorian capital,” said Cathay Pacific’s General Manager Southwest Pacific, Nelson Chin.

“As an airline, we know that air travel is much more than simply getting from A to B. We continue to improve the journey for our passengers; and this aircraft does just that. It is transforming the way our passengers are travelling – it’s faster, smarter, and greener, and boasts our newest cabins,” he said.

The Airbus A350 features Cathay Pacific’s latest Business, Premium Economy and Economy cabins and is now operating one of the three daily Melbourne-Hong Kong flights (CX 104).
