Cathay Pacific Airways has announced it will discontinue its daily flight between Hong Kong and Doha "for commercial reasons".

In a statement on its website, the airline said the service, which launched in March 2014, is being discontinued with effect from February 15, 2016.

Cathay Pacific said it will continue to work together with Qatar Airways as strategic airline partners within the oneworld alliance.

The Hong Kong-based carrier said it remained committed to the region, and will look for new opportunities in the future.

"Cathay Pacific remains committed to serving the Middle East market and we will continue to identify opportunities to strengthen its services to and from the region," said the statement.

The airline currently operates daily services to Dubai and Bahrain in addition to four flights a week to Riyadh.

The Cathay Pacific "CX" code will remain in place on Qatar Airways flights between Doha and Hong Kong, while the Qatar Airways "QR" code will remain on selected Cathay Pacific flights from Hong Kong to Australia, New Zealand, Korea and Japan. Effective February 15, 2016, the Cathay Pacific code will no longer go on Qatar Airways flights from Doha to other destinations.

The last Cathay Pacific flight from Hong Kong to Doha will be CX645 on February 14, 2016, while the last flight from Doha to Hong Kong will be CX640 the following day.

Alternative arrangements will be made for passengers already booked on Cathay Pacific flights to and from Doha after the service comes to an end.
