Cathay Pacific Offers Flight Deals for Chinese New Year

By: Cliff Ritter on February 2, 2016

The Year of the Monkey is less than a week away, and Cathay Pacific is giving travellers the opportunity to ring in the Chinese new year in style with discounted flights from Canada to select destinations in Asia and the South Pacific.

From now until February 14, Cathay Pacific is offering savings between 15-20% on Economy Class and and 22-26% on Premium Economy Class fares to China and other Asian and South Pacific destinations including Australia and New Zealand. While the deals are here for the Chinese new year, the departures are for February 14 to June 12 and August 15 to November 30 of this year.

While the fare prices are as usual dependent on the details of your specific flight needs, the company’s press release highlighted some sample fares based on flights out of Vancouver and Toronto.

That pricing includes taxes and surcharges and are based on Monday through Thursday departures.

Of course, apart from the discounted fares, the trip can also save you money with rewards miles. Furthermore, those who book online through Cathay Pacific’s website will receive a complimentary monkey plush toy as long as supplies last, so if you weren’t convinced about booking a trip before, you should definitely be now.

Don’t forget to buy travel insurance when you book your vacation. You never know what can go wrong and Asia’s a long way from home.
