SAN FRANCISCO, March 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cathay Pacific Airways yesterday launched a new daily service from Newark Liberty International Airport to Hong Kong with a first flight celebration that included a lion dance and traditional roast pig cutting ceremony.

The new service complements Cathay Pacific's current four-times-daily service from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in New York. The launch of the Newark service provides more convenience and greater flexibility for passengers traveling to and from the New York metropolitan area.

The Newark service is operated by Boeing 777-300ER aircraft featuring Cathay Pacific's new cabin products, including the awarding-winning Business Class, Premium Economy Class and the new Economy Class seats. Together with the special service provided by Cathay Pacific's cabin crew, named the "World's Best Cabin Staff" by Skytrax, and a state-of-the-art inflight entertainment system in all classes, passengers are provided with the best experience when they travel between Hong Kong and Newark.

Cathay Pacific Senior Vice President, Americas, Tom Owen said, "The introduction of Cathay Pacific's Newark to Hong Kong service demonstrates our commitment to the New York Metropolitan area, which has been instrumental in the development of our North American operations.  We are dedicated to offering even more choice and flexibility for Tri-state residents, and we constantly raise the bar on our passengers' experience through impeccable service, superior in-flight amenities and products."
