In just 10 days, the airline cleared nearly 5,000 London-Hong Kong flights, enough to cover 504 round-the-world trips. This year, Cathay Pacific’s Green Friday promotion is expanding globally with attractive flight deals and free double carbon offsetting.

Cathay Pacific is committed to reducing its carbon footprint, and many of our passengers are also passionate about it.
