While we’ve been waiting for our local carriers to grant us our wishes (or give in to our clamoring) for direct flights to international destinations for the longest time, Cathay Dragon suddenly comes roaring in and showers us with good tidings.

Starting October 28, 2018, Hong Kong is a single plane ride away from Durianburg. Imagine this: no connecting flights and shorter travel time. This means we arrive in Hong Kong hassle-free with more time to tour, shop and eat. Or, you can connect to an onward destination anywhere in the world via Cathay Pacific.

I received this good news from Cathay Pacific Davao office a few moments ago….


The Cathay Pacific Group today announced that its regional airline, Cathay Dragon, will launch a four-times-weekly service to Davao City from 28 October. The new route, the only non-stop flight between Hong Kong and Davao City, will be operated by Airbus A320 aircraft.

The Cathay Pacific Group has served the Philippines since 1946, Cathay Pacific’s inaugural year of operations, and Davao City will be its fourth destination in the country, complementing existing services to Manila, Cebu and Clark.

Cathay Pacific Country Manager Philippines Rob Bradshaw said the new services reflect the group’s commitment to growing its reach, providing customers with more choice and options when connecting through the airlines’ hub to over 200 destinations in its network.

“We have a rich and robust history of serving the Philippines and we are thrilled today to grow our presence to Davao, our fourth destination in the country,” he said. “With our renowned signature service and convenient schedule, customers will be assured of a premium experience when they travel with us. Through the efficient and passenger friendly Hong Kong hub, the world is now one step closer to our customers in Mindanao.”

The flight schedule for the Hong Kong – Davao City (DVO) service from 28 October 2018 is as follows:

Flight No.         From          To         Departure/Arrival        Days of Operation
                    (all times local)

KA347                HKG         DVO              1235/1550               Tue, Wed, Fri, Sun

KA348                DVO         HKG              1650/2000             Tue, Wed, Fri, Sun

Already this year, the Cathay Pacific Group has launched services to Nanning, Jinan and Brussels. Other new routes to take-off in 2018 include Dublin (June) and Washington (September), as well as seasonal services to Copenhagen (May) and Cape Town (November).
