It's not every day you see a Cathay Pacific flight landing at the Gold Coast Airport, but it's become a regular sight over the weekend.

As worldwide celebrations continue for Chinese New Year, Cathay Pacific is flying direct charter flights from Hong Kong to Coolangatta.

The first of the three scheduled charter flights arrived on Friday, with the remaining two arriving today and tomorrow morning.

This is the first time Cathay Pacific has flown to the Gold Coast.

Whether Cathay Pacific gets a taste for the beach lifestyle of the Gold Coast and begins a regular service from Hong Kong, we'll have to wait and see.
