Please note your refund will take 7 working days for tickets involving US sectors. For other tickets, it may take up to 45 calendar days.

In addition to cancellations, we also offer different free ticket change options. If you know when you’d like to fly, you can easily change your ticket in Manage Booking. Alternatively, if you’re unsure when you’d like to fly, you can exchange your ticket for Cathay Credits to use at a later date.

If you need to alter your plans, please change or cancel your ticket before your departure date to avoid incurring a no-show fee.

If you booked through Cathay Pacific – on our website, mobile app or through our contact centre – the fastest way to organise a refund is to log into Manage BookingOpen a new window. Vantage Pass, Student Fares and Senior Fares ticket holders can organise a refund through our contact centre.

Conclusion

Not sure if Cathay Pacific knows more about entry and transit requirements relaxing in Hong Kong from June 21 onward as they plan to operate more flights from that date.

Cathay Pacific has been severely affected by Covid-19 as it hit their strongest markets first (China and Hong Kong), and later Hong Kong closed its borders from non-residents, and even transiting through the airport was banned and still is.

Passengers whose flights have been canceled by Cathay Pacific are now eligible for refunds through June 30, 2020. I would encourage everyone to opt for a cash refund as it is unclear at this time when all the travel bans and entry restrictions are lifted, and whether there will be several peaks of coronavirus pandemic.
