Cathay Pacific has redesigned its Economy fares, which the airline says gives Australia and New Zealand customers “greater choice and flexibility when booking flights”.

According to the carrier, “no two journeys are the same” and as such, the airline is “continuously listening to its customers and has developed new and simple-to-understand Light, Essential, and Flex fares that are tailored to their travel needs”.

Cathay Pacific says the “consistent and clearly defined attributes associated with each fare type” provide greater visibility for customers on what they are purchasing, helping them choose the fare that suits them best.

“Each fare offers increasingly more control and greater benefits, from enhanced baggage allowances to flexible rebooking and upgrade options,” according to the airline.

“Light fares enable customers to enjoy great value when they are travelling light – perfect for those jetting off for a weekend getaway.

“Essential fares offer the perfect balance of everything customers need, such as extra luggage and seat pre-selection, making them great for those travelling with family or heading off on a longer trip.

“Flex fares give customers complete flexibility for their next business trip or holiday, with full control over their travel plans for maximum convenience and protection,” Cathay Pacific says.

Australian and New Zealand customers can now purchase the redesigned Economy fares directly through the Cathay Pacific website.
