Cathay Pacific passenger numbers up 7% in Jul-2013, cargo down 2%

Cathay Pacific reports (20-Aug-2013) the following traffic highlights in Jul-2013:

Cathay Pacific: “We enjoyed a strong start to the summer peak period, with good loads on major long-haul routes and also to the key holiday destinations within the region. However, the comparison with last year is distorted by the effect of Severe Typhoon Vicente, which had a major impact on our operations in July 2012. The Economy cabins were particularly busy last month; demand in the premium cabins was generally weaker, but in line with our expectations for the summer peak,” James Tong, Cathay Pacific General Manager Revenue Management.
