Cathay Pacific will add Newark to its network map in March 2014 with a daily service between Hong Kong and the New Jersey city, which lies just across the Hudson River from the heaving heart of New York.
CX teased a new US new route last week but suggested that Boston, Miami and Seattle were also on the cards.
Newark will get a three-class Boeing 777-300ER with Cathay's latest business, premium economy and economy seats.
Flight CX890 will depart Hong Kong at 5pm to reach Newark at 9pm that day, with the return leg CX899 out of Newark at 1.50am (!) to reach Hong Kong at 5.40am the next day.
Many business travellers consider Newark (airport code EWR, and also known as Newark Liberty) a popular alternative to New York's JFK airport – especially if you're heading to downtown Manhattan, such as the financial area around the World Trade Center or Wall Street and the lower West Side below 33rd Street.
This will be the fifth US city for Cathay Pacific after Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco.
