Cathay Pacific Airways has announced introduction of its new business class and premium economy cabins on its services between Hyderabad and Hong Kong.

The recently launched Hyderabad-Hong Kong service will now offer a three-class configuration - business class, premium economy class and the long-haul economy class - for passengers.

The airline’s business class cabin design allows passengers to control their degree of privacy and openness, the airline said in a statement.

Its premium economy class features a quieter, more spacious cabin than the traditional economy class with between 26 and 34 seats an aircraft.

The new long-haul economy class seat features a cradle mechanism to enhance the level of comfort in the recline position.

Cathay Pacific has extended its presence in India with a new four-times-weekly service between Hong Kong and Hyderabad.

Together with sister airline Dragonair, the group now operates 46 weekly flights from six cities in India.
