Cathay Pacific: "We saw a significant rise in our capacity in July as all previously parked freighters were returned to service, but the increase in tonnage was almost on a par due to sustained strong demand out of our key markets. Demand to Europe was softer than for trans-Pacific routes but we have been encouraged by the strengthening of inbound loads into Hong Kong and China, which has helped to drive up our overall cargo and mail load factor,” James Woodrow, General Manager Cargo Sales & Marketing.
