Cathay Pacific pax up 6% but cargo down 4% in Sep-2013, 81% pax load factor

Cathay Pacific reports (17-Oct-2013) the following traffic highlights in Sep-2013:

Cathay Pacific: “Demand in the premium cabins usually picks up as we enter into the corporate travel peak, and our performance has been in line with expectations, with improvements in both yield and load factor. Our short-haul routes did well, with the Mid Autumn Festival spurring leisure traffic out of Hong Kong, Mainland China, Taiwan and Korea. However, Typhoon Usagi had a negative impact on our business, and currencies continued to work against us,” James Tong, Cathay Pacific General Manager Revenue Management.
