Swire Pacific: “Like the Cathay Pacific group, the HAECO group is cautious about the recent improvement in the aviation industry. The HAECO group expects increased aircraft movements at Hong Kong International Airport and better utilisation of its hangars in 2010. However, start-up losses at the new joint ventures in Mainland China will affect the results in 2010.  Overall, 2010 will be another challenging year,” Christopher Pratt, Chairman.
