What’s Cathay Pacific’s strategy on their new London Gatwick service?

What’s Cathay Pacific’s strategy on their new London Gatwick service?

  1. Alvin | YTHK

    Cathay Pacific flies to Heathrow five times a day, so what’s Cathay’s strategy on LGW service? Admittedly there are more leisure routes, but why London Gatwick and not another one in Paris or a direct route to somewhere?

    Probably because they can take advantage of OW partner connections through BA?

    There are a lot of BA routes that only fly out of LGW. Also, I imagine like with JFK vs. EWR, even though JFK is the “flagship” airport for NYC there are plenty of people for whom EWR is the more convenient airport and the same is probably true with LGW vs. LHR. Finally, even if their main purpose was just to increase service from LON-HKG, I imagine that getting slots at LGW was a lot easier and cheaper than getting slots at LHR. Possibly that made the economics work for a new flight.
