Just recently, Cathay Pacific has confirmed the official launch of its newest seasonal route from Barcelona, Spain to Hong Kong beginning July 2, 2017. The flight, which is the very first direct continuous track between Spain and Hong Kong, will be operated with one of its new aircrafts, the A350-900.

The service will run until October 27 with four flights per week and is still subject to the approval of the government, Fly News reports. Last June 2014, Cathay Pacific has also launched its first direct route from Hong Kong to Madrid, Spain.

In a report by Business Traveller, Ivan Chu, Chief Executive Officer of Cathay Pacific, said that Barcelona is actually a great city for tourism because of its rich culture which draws the attention of visitors from around the world. The A350-900 aircraft that will be used in the operation for these flights will feature a three-class business, economy and premium economy configuration.

"We're excited to offer the first-ever direct link between Hong Kong and Barcelona, which follows the launch of our Madrid service last year. This new summer service reflects our commitment to grow the Cathay Pacific network and offer customers more choice. This further strengthens Hong Kong's status as one of the world's most important aviation hubs," Chu added.

For the four-day-per-week flights, CX321 will set off from Hong Kong at 0020 and will land on Barcelona at 0735. At 1350, the aircraft will leave from the Catalonian capital and will reach Hong Kong at 0805 the next day.

Korean Air has also shared its plans of operating flights between Barcelona, Spain and Incheon International Airport in Seoul beginning April this year. Once started, it will be the direct flights that are first to operate from Northern Asia to Spain.

At present, Cathay Pacific already heads the operations of flights from nine destinations all through Europe which includes more than 80 direct flights per week including London to Rome, Paris, Milan, Zurich and Frankfurt. In 2016, Cathay Dragon, Cathay Pacific's underling, has included 23 new flight destinations in 16 countries all over the world, giving it a total of 52 flight destinations.
