Boston to Hong Kong flights

width="280"Boston’s campaign to offer travelers more direct air routes to the world’s most important business destinations is preparing to add nonstop service to another key city.

Cathay Pacific Airways, voted the world’s best airline by travelers this year, will start flying nonstop between Boston and its base in Hong Kong in May next year. The airline will become the second to offer direct flights to China from Logan Airport, following the Beijing route added by Hainan Airlines in June.

Officials said the Hong Kong flights would provide businesses travelers and tourists with better access to major cities in Southeast Asia.

“Everybody talks about the global economy, but unless you’re connected to it, it’s just an abstraction, ” said Governor Deval Patrick. “Hong Kong is one of the great financial centers in the world.”

The Massachusetts Port Authority, which runs the airport, has been expanding its international service over the last few years. It often partners with state officials and local business leaders to attract new carriers.

Since the spring of 2012, Copa Airlines added a trip to Panama City, Emirates launched a flight to Dubai, Japan Airlines added Tokyo, Turkish Airlines started service to Istanbul, and Hainan began the Beijing flight.

The 16-hour Hong Kong flight is scheduled to run four days a week, leaving Boston on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. It departs Hong Kong on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.

In the summer, the flights will leave Boston at 1:45 a.m. and arrive in Hong Kong at 5:35 a.m. the following day, according to MassPort. The return trips will leave Hong Kong at 6 p.m. and arrive in Boston at 9:30 p.m. Flight times will vary slightly in the winter.

The plane, a Boeing 777-300ER, will carry 275 passengers and offer first class, business class, premium economy, and economy cabins.

Cathay Pacific has not disclosed how much the trip would cost, but the airline’s round-trip tickets for midweek travel between New York and Hong Kong next month vary dramatically in price. Economy seats are available for $973.88 while some first-class accommodations on that direct route cost more than $20, 000.
