Cathay to fly to Copenhagen

But flights to Hong Kong are so far only seasonal
From May 2 to October 12 next year, the oneworld member Cathay Pacific opens a seasonal route from its home base in Hong Kong to Copenhagen, with three A350-900 flights per week.
The route was announced together with two more to Europe. Hong Kong to Brussels will start from March 27, four times a week; Hong Kong to Copenhagen will start on May 2, three times weekly, though for now only as a seasonal service; and Hong Kong to Dublin from June 2, four times weekly.
All of the new routes will be operated by Cathay Pacific’s A350-900. The airline is taking delivery of 22 A350-900s. It already has 18, with another four to come, and has 26 A350-1000s on order, all of which will help to cut costs on long-haul flights.
It will be the only airline with an A350 at the airport – Airbus’s newest long-range model.
Cathay’s A350s have 280 seats, including 214 economy, 28 premium economy and 38 business. The business-class seats on this plane are a slight update on the airline’s 777 business class, but the planes do not have first class – though they do have wifi.
Cathay already flies about 100 times a week to 12 airports in Europe. London Heathrow is the largest with five flights a day.
Cathay previously served Scandinavia from Hong Kong to Stockholm from 1995 for some years. In September 2015, SAS began to fly there from Stockholm five times a week, and SAS flew Copenhagen-Hong Kong for over ten years, but closed in 2004.
