Cathay Pacific: “As expected, we saw a surge in traffic last month after a quiet May. Demand was high across the network, buoyed by returning schoolchildren on several key routes and the beginning of summer holiday travel. Long-haul routes were particularly busy with high load factors in all classes of travel. We saw some pick-up in the Mainland China market compared to the previous month and demand to Japan was again high as a result of the yen depreciation. Demand in the premium cabins was in line with expectations,” James Tong, Cathay Pacific General Manager Revenue Management. Source: Company statement, 15-Jul-2013.
