HONG KONG, 11 August 2021: Cathay Pacific launched a new
flight on 10 August, serving the Phuket Sandbox project that seeks to reopen
the southern Thailand holiday island to international tourism.

Cathay Pacific’s latest information on flights from August to September shows the airline introduced a once-a-week service on Tuesday using an Airbus A330-300.

Cathay Pacific’s Airbus A330-300 operates with a three-class
configuration — 39 flatbeds in business, 21 premium economy and 191 in economy
class.

CX771 departs Hong Kong at 0830 and arrives in Phuket at 1100 every Tuesday ( 10, 17, 24 and 31 August). Weekly flights are scheduled to the end of September when the advance timetable shows travellers can book a daily flight throughout October. In November, the airline plans twice daily flights departing Hong Kong 0830 (CX771) and 1515 (CX773).

Phuket Sandbox rules apply to fully vaccinated international
travellers who stay on the island for 14 nights without having to quarantine.
They need to present three PCR negative test results during their stay to
travel to other destinations in Thailand. Other rules apply, such as providing
proof of Covid-19 insurance and obtaining a certificate of entry from the
nearest Thai consulate or embassy.

Meanwhile, following a recent announcement by the Hong Kong
SAR Government that eases some Covid-19 measures, the airline also resumed
flights to and from the UK, Indonesia and the Philippines as of 9 August.

Fully vaccinated Hong Kong residents who have recently
stayed in Group A countries – including the UK, Indonesia and the Philippines –
will once again enter Hong Kong.

Children of Hong Kong residents who are under 12, and are
flying with adults who meet the above criteria, will also be able to fly
regardless of their vaccination status.
