Cathay Pacific records year best weekly passenger load factor last week

Cathay Pacific recorded its best weekly passenger load factor for 2009 last week, reflecting the Mainland’s week-long National Day holiday from 01-Oct-2009, but yields remain weak (Reuters, 05-Oct-2009)

Cathay Pacific: “We had the best week so far this year. But what we are seeing here is the seasonal strength in the market. We managed to fill more flights but at a much reduced yield”, Tony Tyler, CEO. Source: Reuters, 05-Oct-2009
