Cathay Pacific will introduce the first direct flight between Hong Kong and Christchurch, New Zealand, on December 1 as part of a new seasonal route. 

The non-stop flight will operate three times a week, from December 1 to February 28, 2018, using an Airbus A350-900. The 280-seat aircraft has 38 seats in business class, 28 in premium economy, and 214 economy-class seats.

Flight CX123 will depart Hong Kong at 20h45 on Wednesdays and Sundays, arriving in Christchurch at 12h55 next day. CX123 will depart Hong Kong on Fridays at 14h50, arriving in Christchurch at 07h00 next day.
