SAN FRANCISCO, -- Cathay Pacific Airways announced that its daily flight from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) to Hong Kong will switch from a Boeing 777-300ER to an Airbus A350-900 beginning October 29.

One of 16 A350-900s delivered to the airline since its launch in 2016, the aircraft features a refreshed Business Class cabin as well as new Premium Economy Class and Economy Class seats. The A350 will also be deployed on one of three daily San Francisco – Hong Kong flights beginning on the very same day. The airline's four flights per day from New York's John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK) will continue to be operated by Boeing 777-300ER. Most of Cathay Pacific's ultra long-haul fleet is on the 777.

CX899 will depart daily at 1:10 a.m.arriving in Hong Kong the following day at 5:00 a.m. This early morning arrival allows 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, CX890, departs Hong Kong at 6:00 p.m. (local time), arriving in Newark at 9:40 p.m. (same day).

"The A350-900 is unrivaled in terms of sustainability and passenger experience," said Philippe Lacamp, Senior Vice President, Americas, Cathay Pacific. "Quietest among the aircraft types in its class and also 25% more fuel efficient, Cathay Pacific has again proven itself as a leader in airline eco-innovation, with the A350 in-flight carpets and passengers' blankets made from recycled plastic, including salvaged fishing nets and plastic bottles.

With its extra wide body, the aircraft offers more space and comfort, a quiet cabin, panoramic windows and LED mood lighting, contributing to a more comfortable and relaxing journey in all cabin classes.

The A350-900 employs innovative technology and design, which improves not only passenger comfort, but also the efficiency, effectiveness and overall performance of the aircraft. Its advanced design, together with the latest generation of engines and the use of advanced construction materials – including carbon fiber composites – deliver a 25% improvement in operating costs overall when compared to previous-generation aircraft.

Cathay Pacific has taken delivery of 16 A350-900 aircraft, with an additional six on firm order, and 26 firm orders of the A350-1000.
