Cathay Pacific returns to Barcelona, resuming non-stop flights between the Catalan capital and Hong Kong. From June 17, 2024, Cathay Pacific will reinstate one of the most important international destinations from Barcelona after suspending the route in 2020 due to the pandemic. Three years earlier, in 2017, Cathay Pacific inaugurated the first ever passenger service between the two cities.
“We are delighted to announce that we are once again flying to and from Barcelona”

Kinto Chan, Cathay Pacific's Regional General Manager for Europe, said: "We are delighted to announce that we are once again flying to and from Barcelona. Over the past year, we have focused our efforts on rebuilding our network, with the resumption of flights from Madrid at the end of 2022, and we have continued to increase the frequency of flights from the Spanish capital due to the great response from our customers and strong demand. We are delighted to now be able to add Barcelona back to the list to continue to bring our customers closer to their favourite destinations".
Direct flights between Barcelona and Hong Kong will operate every Monday, Thursday, and Saturday, in addition to the three weekly frequencies already operated from Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport.
Furthermore, thanks to Cathay Pacific's network from its hub at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA), these routes can be combined with any of the airline's many destinations in the Asia-Pacific region, such as Mainland China, Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia and the Philippines, with short connecting times. Cathay Pacific will operate the Barcelona-Hong Kong route with the Airbus A350-900.
