More flexible flight fares

Cathay Pacific has announced the introduction of a new, simplified, streamlined and more flexible fare structure. Available for year-round fares the changes aim to provide passengers with greater flexibility.

As a result of conversations with travel agents throughout Australia, the new structure now has three fares rules instead of eight.

Some of the main benefits of the new fare structures include;

  • Changes to credit card payment fees.

Payment by credit card on every fare is now a flat fee of $30, except for flights from Australia to Hong Kong which can be paid for by credit card at no charge.

  • Mixed classes.

Passengers now have the ability to mix and match different classes on different legs of the journey. I.e. You could book economy to Hong Kong and then Premium Economy on the return journey.

  • Hong Kong stopover.

There is no cost for Hong Kong stopovers in both directions on every fare.

  • No rebooking fee.
  • A reduction from eight to three fare rules.

For more information visit Cathay Pacific or see your travel agent.

    you should not be slugged any extra charges for paying by credit card they should be happy to get your business let alone slug you extra for using it its a absolute rip off start saying if you are going to charge me extra for using a credit card you can stick it where the sun don't shine a lot of us have different cards all linked to a credit card accept the credit card at no extra cost or shove it.

    All well and good but have they replaced those bloody uncomfortable seats yet as they promised. The best airline I have experienced except for the poor quality upholstery.
