HONG KONG – Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd on Friday said it plans to add more than 200 pairs of passenger flights in October to both regional and long-haul destinations.

The announcement came after the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region government said to scrap its COVID-19 hotel quarantine policy for all arrivals from Sept 26.
