Looks like they will be widebody aircraft as the Bulletin is quoted as saying over 1000 holidaymakers for three charter flights; if that is correct that is at least 333 people per flight.

And if it was China Southern Airlines why would the charters originate from HKG and not CAN?

Did a google search and came across this


Cathay Charters to Gold Coast

This will be the very first time for Cathay to operate their own aircraft to this hot Australian tourist spot in Queensland. The proper name of the city is called Coolangata (OOL). There will be 3 charter flights with A330-300s with flight numbers CX8153/8154/8158/8159 during the Chinese New Year Hoilday between 8 to 13 February 2013.

By looking at Hong Kong Airport's website they have flight information within 4 days, so if the first charter flight departs HKG late on the 7th and arrives at OOL in the morning on the 8th then we should see it appear tomorrow.

Likewise if it departs HKG on the 8th we should see it appear the day after tomorrow.

Surely someone must be in the know on schedules though, but oh well looks like we'll just have to fend for ourselves on this one :)

Alright! The first charter flight has appeared on the Hong Kong Airport website.

CX8159 to OOL DEPART HKG 2210 on the 7th of February.

By my calculations this should see the flight arriving at OOL around 0900 on the 8th of February.

The Gold Coast Airport website will have the arrival info on the 7th as well to confirm this information.

Cheers everyone, hope this time suits you. :)
