SAN FRANCISCO -- September 12, 2013

To celebrate the launch of its newest route from Newark Liberty International
Airport to Hong Kong, Cathay Pacific Airways, the home carrier of Hong Kong
recognized around the globe for its amenities and service excellence, is
pleased to announce an eight-day fare sale exclusive to Newark passengers.

Round-trip economy class tickets from Newark to Hong Kong purchased between
September 16 - 23, 2013 will be on sale from just $759* – including all taxes
and fuel surcharges – for travel between March 1 – April 30, 2014.

The new service, commencing on March 1, 2014, will complement Cathay Pacific’s
current four-times-daily service from John F. Kennedy International Airport
(JFK) in New York. The launch of the Newark service will provide more
convenience and greater flexibility for passengers traveling to and from the
New York metropolitan area.

The service will be 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, recently named the
“World’s Best Cabin Staff” by Skytrax, and a state-of-the-art inflight
entertainment system in all classes, passengers will be provided with the best
experience when they travel between Newark and Hong Kong.

Newark will become Cathay Pacific’s fifth gateway in the United States, and
seventh in North America. The airline currently serves Chicago, Los Angeles,
New York (JFK), San Francisco, Toronto and Vancouver.
