The decision will take effect from the beginning of May and will last until at least the end of the year.

A spokesperson for Cathay Pacific in Zurich said the route was not profitable enough to continue a four-times weekly service. The decision to suspend the airline's Swiss operations would be reassessed in time for a possible reintroduction of the service in 2002, the spokesperson added.

Switzerland's national carrier, Swissair, will continue to operate six flights a week to Hong Kong out of its international hub in Zurich.
