Cathay Pacific passenger numbers up 6.0% - consolidated traffic highlights in Mar-2010:

  • Passenger numbers: 2.2 milion, +6.0% year-on-year;
  • Passenger traffic (RPKs): +6.6%;
  • Passenger load factor: 85.7%, +6.6 ppts;
  • Cargo volume: 159,270 tonnes, +22.9%. [more]

Cathay Pacific: “Passenger volume and yield trends continued to improve through the month, which finished with a boost to leisure traffic in the lead up to the Easter holidays. Premium demand was also sustained at levels significantly higher than during last year’s market crash, but still fell short of the pre-recession levels we used to enjoy. Forward demand recovery off last year’s low base in both our business and economy cabins remains encouraging over the next few months,” Tom Owen, Cathay Pacific General Manager Revenue Management.
