Cathay Pacific pax and cargo up 2% with 87% pax load factor in Jan-2017

Cathay Pacific reported (15-Feb-2017) the following traffic highlights in Jan-2017:

Cathay Pacific: "We got off to a solid start in 2017. Tonnage grew ahead of capacity and showed an increase over the same month last year. We saw a good rebound in demand from Hong Kong, Mainland China and various key Asian markets. Yield was sustained through a better mix of priority and special shipments. There was also robust demand for fresh produce and seafood across the network. We operated a number of extra-sector freighters to the Americas, Europe and India in January, while cutting back on capacity in February to adapt to Chinese New Year’s January start."
