Cathay Pacific: “We aim to increase overall passenger capacity by about 4% for the Cathay Pacific Group, returning to 2008 pre-financial crisis levels. The increased frequencies will offer passengers greater choice and further strengthen connections through Hong Kong. Together with our new Milan and Moscow services, launched respectively in March and July this year, these service enhancements will certainly boost Hong Kong’s position as one of the world’s leading aviation hubs,” Tony Tyler, CEO.
