CATHAY TO FLY TO BENGAL AGAIN

Hong Kong-based airline Cathay Pacific has requested the possibility of returning services to Bengal from the chief minister’s office.

It is 41 years since the airline flew to the region. It withdrew services in 1970.  In a letter, Tom Wright, general manager for India, Middle East, Africa and Pakistan at Cathay Pacific Airways, said: “We will be grateful if you can arrange a meeting to explore the possibilities of Cathay Pacific or Hong Kong Dragon Airlines (its sister airline) starting scheduled passenger air services from Hong Kong to Calcutta.”

The airline has once again decided to explore the Calcutta market based on a market survey and the demand for business travel to the region.
